Pakistani Edition: How to boost your immunity in summers

When it comes to improving immunity, it is a good idea might be to start with the gut as it plays a major role in our overall health.

Our gut absorbs the nutrients in the food, which is why it’s wellness should be our top priority.

An unhealthy gut can intensify bad bacteria growth, direct to leaky gut lining, trigger inflammation, and more – all of which leads to even bigger health concerns.

A risk we are not willing to take right now. We bring you 9 natural ways to improve your gut health while staying indoors.

1. Add fermented foods like dahi, paneer, naan, achaar, and more to your meals and snacks which are full of probiotics that strengthen bacteria living in the digestive tract.

2. Reduce artificial sweetener intake (or added sugar in general). They feed the bad bacteria, suppress the growth of good bacteria, and prevent the natural healing of the gut.

3. Let your body wake up naturally (when you can) and sleep more. The key to optimal gut health is following your body’s natural circadian rhythm.

4. Focus on stress management. Baths, reading, meditation, and more can help your body calm and reduce the unavoidable stress that is interfering with the good bacteria in the small intestines.

5. Sip on bone broth aka yakhni. If chicken grosses you out, try a vegetable version. Our mothers were right when they told us it helps with digestion and reducing inflammation.

6. Eat more (natural) fiber like beans, whole grain, dried fruits, and all fruits and vegetables. They can help improve overall gut health and get things moving.

7. Swap your cleaning products to healthier options or just plain soap and water. Antibacterial and antimicrobial cleaning products negatively affect gut microbiota.

8. Add natural prebiotics like bananas, onion, garlic, and more to your meals or invest in a prebiotic supplement which is the food for probiotics.

9. Trust your gut. Literally! If a certain lifestyle, food, or activity change is not working for you, let it go. Your body knows what’s best for it to heal naturally.
