Every time we spend time outdoors I think of the advice offered by Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride, author of Gut and Psychology Syndrome. Dr. Campbell-McBride is a specialist in the field of neurology and nutrition and an advocate for parents to utilize natural approaches for healing and well-being.
She is also the mother of a child fully recovered from a severe learning disability and has seen the power of real food, time outdoors and interaction with nature.
Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride’s ten immune-boosting suggestions
1. Fresh animal fats (from meats and dairy) and cholesterol-rich foods (particularly raw egg yolk).
2. Cold-pressed oils: olive oil, fish oils, nut and seed oils.
3. Onions and garlic.
4. Freshly pressed vegetable and fruit juices.
5. Regular consumption of greens: parsley, dill, coriander, spring onion and garlic, etc.
6. Probiotic supplementation and fermented foods.
7. Contact with animals: horses, dogs, etc. Having a pet in the family can do a lot for children’s immune status.
8. Swimming in unpolluted natural waters: lakes, rivers and sea.
9. Physical activity in the fresh air.
10. Exposure to sunlight and sensible sunbathing.
