How To Not Get Sick

We were having dinner with friends recently, and we were discussing an interesting phenomenon. And that is, people who make the transition to a ton more vegetables and greens, really do get sick less. It is just such a no-brainer.

But on the flip side, people who have not made the shift are so resistant to the point of being incredulous. They just don't believe it.

For those of you who have made big changes, what have been your experiences since in terms of getting sick?

The Science Of How To Boost Your Immunity With Food

I have tried everything convincing other people. My kids no longer get sick for the most part. Maybe the occaisonal bug comes through. But no more of the endless runny noses. My kids never got ear infections (knock on wood) but I know people whose kids do. And these are the people who think you are crazy for saying that food has something to do with it.

I think the best thing one can do is definitely say something, say that these changes work. And then wait for them to hear it from other people. At some point it will start to sink in.

Change is hard. Especially since people have begun to distrust the word "change"

I have not even had a cold in 3 years. My husband was in the hospital almost 2 years and I was there every day around all the stuff you can get in a hospital! He is home and right now has pneumonia but I am healthy and strong. I am amazed! I used to get sick every october for some reason but not since I started adding nutrients and Eating to Live! I also take vitamins B, D3, calcium, a multi, astaxanthin, vegan omega 3 DHA, and coconut oil. I honestly feel I cannot get sick! I may live forever! I am 60, strong bones, endless energy (no naps), and at a normal weight with a flat stomach. A 60lb weight loss!! from an 18 to an 8!! Nutrient dense food is the best thing for a healthy life!!

Sick Less Yes!

I have commented many times to friends and family who keep getting colds and fevers that I really don't anymore, maybe one time this year. Interestingly, I get a slight runny nose frequently when I eat my salad and veggies. It stops shortly after eating, maybe an allergy?

it is not just ETL. Removing some of the toxic foods I think is just as important. It might not make you less sick, but in my experience it will make you feel a lot better.

I know for certain that my health has improved since I began my lifestyle change two years ago. Every winter, I would get at least one terrible respiratory infection with that deep, painful cough that last until spring. Knock on wood, I am still going strong and if I make it until April, this will be my third winter WITHOUT getting "the cough". This isn't to say that I don't cough ever or that I'm immune to everything. I have come down with strep throat once and had the stomach virus for too, but the frequency, length and severity of my illnesses have DEFINITELY decreased. I am so thankful for my new found health and I believe that this is 100% because I am eating healthy and exercising. If I ever feel like I am starting to get sick, I up my fruits and veggies and drink water until I think I'm going to explode, exercise and stretch really well to release all the toxins. Works like a charm!!! When I started losing weight, I knew that I would improve my cardiovascular health, relieve the stress on my joints and reduce my chance of diabetes, but it never occurred to me that I would improve my immune system too! Best surprise ever!!!!!
