I get affected to cold often, I get it by allergic to dust and the severity is very high and, is there any way to avoid the same?
My 5-year-old daughter has asthma. What is the effect of using an asthma preventer long-term? I heard that using it for years might cause bone shrinkage. Is it true? Are there any vitamins or supplements to help vision? OrI know I overeat at meals, but I can't help it. If I limit my portions, I'm hungry an hour later. How can I avoid overeating and have better control of my appetite? My stomach aches, thought it becomes fine in a day, but still it pains regularly, what to do?

Garlic is nature’s antibiotic, so it's great to add to your diet when you're feeling not-so-hot. Compounds like allistatin, allicin, garlicin, and ajoene deliver super-strong antibacterial, antifungal, antiviral, and immune-enhancing benefits. Fresh garlic is best (and large quantities of it!) so add the flavor-maker to your meals. It’s incredible for you, so the garlic breath is worth it!
2. Green tea
Green tea contains polyphenols, potent plant antioxidants, which give it immune-system boosting effects. And, egcg, the active compound in green tea, has been known to fight bacteria and viruses. Matcha is the most nutrient-rich green tea, making an already simple daily booster even easier to get in your system.
3. Coconut oil
Coconut oil has many unique health-promoting benefits. It contains lauric acid, which has been shown to enhance immunity and improve heart and thyroid health. It’s also anti-fungal, antibacterial and antiviral, so making it a staple in your diet is a smart idea if you want to feel your best. And, don’t be concerned about the fat — the medium-chain fatty acids in coconut oil are converted to energy quickly in the body, as opposed to being stored.
Turmeric is one of the foods with the highest antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Curcumin, the active ingredient in turmeric, is antiviral, anti-fungal, and can help protect against cancer. Inflammation is linked to many chronic diseases, so turmeric is a must. Up your body's absorption significantly by mixing turmeric with black pepper.
5. Fermented foods
If you want to boost your immune system in a major way, adding fermented foods, like sauerkraut and kimchi, is important. Fermented foods contain healthy, friendly bacteria that help to balance your gut flora — this is where 70% of your immune system is housed! it's crucial to keep everything in working order down there.
If you’re looking for immune-boosting supplements, 3 of my top picks are probiotics, vitamin D and glutathione. But, when it comes to easy — and delicious — everyday improvements, healthy food is really where it's at.
