The cold season is upon us, but there are plenty of tricks you can try to help keep those bugs at bay.
1 Get the juicer out
Both turmeric—the yellow spice used in curry—and ginger are reputed to have antimicrobial properties and enhance immunity. They also make delicious juices. Try a homemade carrot, apple and fresh ginger juice or one made of courgette, apple and fresh turmeric.
2 Plunge into cold water
Sounds like torture? Maybe, but there’s evidence that daily cold showers or baths (not for too long, mind), can boost your immune system. Giving yourself a few blasts of cold water during a hot shower might be a more comfortable approach.
3 Relax in a sauna
