Healing Foods to Boost Your Immune System

Continuing on the topic of seasonal allergies, let’s look at some basic dietary shifts that can help alleviate seasonal allergies:

  • Local, raw honey is a super-food that powerfully boosts the immune system because you are ingesting small amounts of local pollens. Local raw honey can be purchased at your neighborhood farmer’s market. Start by eating a 1/4 teaspoon per day. Other immune-boosting foods include: mushrooms (especially shitake and maitake) and fermented foods (like sauerkraut, fermented pickles and other vegetables, kim chi, kombucha, kefir soda, whey soda, and other fermented foods).
  • Eat quercitin-rich foods which naturally inhibit histamines. These include: garlic, red and yellow onions, apples (with the skin on), red grapes, green and black tea, and berries.
