The key to overcoming chronic illness and recovering from chemotherapy treatments-or just to avoid getting every virus that goes around-is to build up the body's natural immune defenses. Nutrient-poor diets contribute to their poor health, so learning how to eat foods that boost your immune defenses is a very important step. The Complete Idiot's Guide® to Boosting Your Immunity shows readers which foods to eat in order to build up their natural resistance to viruses, bacteria, and chronic diseases, including recipes showcasing nutrient-dense foods that pack an anti-disease punch. It also provides knowledgeable guidance for navigating the complex world of vitamins and natural supplements, helping readers formulate a regimen that works best for their needs. The role of exercise in immunity is also explored, with practical tips for using it to maximize wellness. And to give readers the best chance of staying healthy, the book shows hidden healthy habits that can keep them from picking up every germ that goes around.
