How to Improve Your Immune System to Fight with Corona-Virus

Coronavirus or COVID-19 was declared a world pandemic by WHO in March. It now has been almost three months, and the world is still fighting the deadly disease. Staying home as much as possible, wearing a mask when going out, and keeping a suitable distance is a terms of the new civilization.

The virus entered the Indian subcontinent and is now supposed to stay here for a longer time. There are safety measures that have to be taken before we get back to our lives. Some steps should be the new normal.

Immune System and coronavirus

Our immunity is the safety system of our body to keep any foreign, unfriendly invaders away. Having good immunity means that your body system will resist the bacteria and viruses that might be present in the air you are breathing in. It’s important to have good immune system strength, especially during this unknown time in our lives. The better our immune system is, the higher the chance that we have of remaining healthy and free of illness. In order to keep ourselves and those around us safe, we must take the necessary precautions and follow any safety measures given to us.  The virus and the disease caused by it are novel. So, the only thing we can rely on right now is precautions and safety measures.

When we talk about precautions, then keeping up with the immunity to fight the coronavirus comes under it.  The AYUSH department of the government of India has given great importance to immunity in times of coronavirus. Your strong immunity will keep you safe from the invasion of the virus. So, let’s discuss how we can do that.

Improve Your Immune System Naturally

The immune system is a mechanism genetic in your body. Some people have a strong one of it, while others are a weaker in this section. To fight diseases you must have a more robust immune system in your body. Although, it is an unstable phenomenon. It keeps on going up and down according to your lifestyle. So, to keep up with the immunity to avoid all the bacteria and viruses, here are some steps and tips that you can opt for in your daily lives to boost your immunity.

1. Food First

The food you eat is one of the most important of all. What we say is that the food you eat can do a part for you in beating the coronavirus. Eat nutritious food rich in antioxidants, vitamins A, E, and C, zinc, and selenium. There is no booster pill for immunity. Your agreeable eating habits only can help you build a good immune system. Add herbs like ginger, garlic, Tulsi, etc. to aid your strength.

2. Do not Compromise on Your Sleep

Your sleep and rest are as important as your workout. Your body will only strengthen and heal itself if it has rested enough. So, give good importance to your sleep. Do not push your bed-time, sleep on time, and wake up on time. Complete at least seven to eight hours of sleep at night. It will keep you active and changed for your daily activities.

Avoid Packaged Foods

You should always avoid packaged foods. But, when you are focusing on building your immunity to prevent coronavirus infection, then definitely try to avoid them. Eat freshly home-made food and use organic ingredients while cooking in your kitchen. It is even better for the health and safety of your loved ones.

Exercise in Routine

Yes! Exercise is enjoyable for health, and better immunity. Practice yoga that will enhance your body system from the inside. Try on some core-strength exercises to strengthen your system from the outside and inside.

De-Stress Yourself

I know that it can be a lot to ask right now when the entire world is under legitimate stress, but that will not help you stay safe. So, instead, what we can do is to keep ourselves relaxed, positive, and away from stress because stress is directly proportional to the immune system. That’s why stay away from stress and stay away from the risks of diseases or infections.


Your eating habits, sleeping pattern, and lifestyle will affect your immunity. So, make sure you take care of them. Not just in the times of pandemic, but always. Apart from that, you can also take some good experts’ recommended immunity booster supplements based on natural ingredients, like neem, tulsi, ashwagandha, etc. Keep washing your hands and maintain social distancing.
