Building Stronger Immune System

Have you ever thought, that why do some people fall ill easily and frequently, while other’s don’t?
The simple reason can be, that those who have a stronger immune system, are less likely to fall ill, in the same adverse and unhealthy circumstances.

What is Immunity?

The human immune system, protects our body against diseases. If our body has strong immune system, it can identify and attack, potentially harmful and disease causing bacteria, viruses, parasites and other microorganisms.

We ourselves, are responsible for a strong or weak immune system. We can either spoil our body, by a faulty lifestyle and unhealthy food. Or, follow a healthy lifestyle, with healthy and nutritious food, so that we don’t fall sick easily and frequently.

When we talk about this, please understand that we are talking about the whole human immune system. It consists of —

  • Good nutritious food,
  • Healthy lifestyle,
  • Proper rest and sleep,
  • Physical activity, (read Yoga, exercises),
  • Mental peace, (read meditation, managing stress and anxiety),
  • Positive mindset,
  • Physical Hygiene.

Immunity building is a continuous process. It can’t be done in a few days. Therefore, these activities should become part of our life.

12 Everyday Spices, For Stronger Immunity

Since ancient times, India has used the spices, in abundance for the various medicinal properties. India has the privilege of growing a variety of these herbs and spices, which are used in everyday cooking, and used extensively in Ayurvedic medicines.
Many of these useful spices are easily available in every household. As such, they can be easily consumed, for immunity building purposes.

Here I am going to share the most common of these healthy spices. In the brackets, I have mentioned their Hindi names.

  1. Turmeric (haldi),
  2. Ginger (adrak),

  9. Carom seeds (ajwain),
  10. Coriander (dhania powder),
  11. Green and Black Cardamoms (choti and badi ilaichi),
  12. Garlic (lahsun).

All these spices are the gifts of Nature, for maintaining our good health. For an average healthy person, they can be safely consumed, with no side effects.

These golden spices help to support —

  • Our whole immune system;
  • Help to fight illness, cough and cold;
  • Uplift the mood;

5 Herbal Tea for Stronger Immunity

Tea is the most popular beverage in India. But here I will be discussing the immense benefits of the various herbal teas, to improve our immune system.

1. Basil or the Tulsi tea:

The holy Basil plant is considered auspicious, and therefore commonly found in the Indian homes. The common variety of the tulsi, has either green or dark green leaves, and they are edible.
The Basil has immense health benefits, whether mild fever, cold, cough, sore throat, fatigue, to name a few.
The Basil tea can be prepared by boiling the green leaves in water, on low flame, for some time, till the water is reduced to half. Sieve and it’s ready to be consumed. You can add black pepper and grated ginger, while boiling the leaves, for more flavour and added benefitS.
2. Mint Tea or pudina tea:

The mint is a popular herb, and like Tulsi, can be grown easily at home.
As we boil the Basil leaves, to prepare the tea, in the same way, we can make mint tea.
3. Cinnamon tea:


Soak the cinnamon sticks or ground cinnamon in a bowl of water, for half an hour. Give it a boil, and then pass through the sieve. You can add few drops of honey, to enjoy the cinnamon tea.

4. Ginger, Cloves and honey tea:


Grate some ginger, and boil in water for 5 to 10 minutes, along with 2 to 3 pieces of cloves. Pass through a sieve, and add honey. Enjoy the healthy, herbal tea.

5. Lemon, black pepper herbal tea:


Add lemon juice, crushed black pepper and honey in boiled water. Let this rest for few minutes.

Note: Honey should not be boiled or heated.
The herbal tea should be prepared fresh, each time you want to have it.
You can change the above combination of ingredients, according to your taste, or availability.

Some More Tips To Improve The Immune System:

  • Turmeric milk or the golden milk is a wonderful way to boost immunity. Mix half teaspoon of turmeric powder, in hot cup of milk. Turmeric is well known for it’s antiseptic and anti inflammatory properties.
  • Drinking warm water prevents and protects us, from many minor infections.

  • Ashwagandha is a wonderful herb, and is widely used in Ayurvedic medicines. This is considered to be beneficial in boosting the immune system. This is easily found in India.
  • Chyawanprash is a widely used Ayurvedic mixture in India, for stronger immune system. It‘s primary ingredient is gooseberries or amla, along with many other precious herbs.
  • Eating fresh fruits, green vegetables, following a healthy diet and lifestyle, is important to build our immunity.
  • Regular physical exercise, walks, practicing Yoga, go a long way to build up the immune system.
  • In any case, the purpose of writing this article is to help prevent us, from catching infections, or falling ill easily. It’s in no way, a cure or a remedy, if a person gets ill, has fever, or infection.

  • In such circumstances, it’s best to follow the advice of a qualified medical professional.

      Yes, honey can be added to warm or hot tea. It will still be effective. What I meant was, that it should not be boiled. Boiling the honey can destroy it’s nutrients.

      Hope that helps. Thank you.

      Good work. Can honey be put in hot tea? I asked because you said it should neither be heated not burn, but when added into hot tea or substance the temperature would change, it will increase, if it does is it still effective?

      I love to use Indian spices in my cooking. They not only make food aromatic and delicious but they are also so beneficial to our health. I love tea and try to have an herbal tea every day. I also grow basil and use it not only in salads but use it for cooking as well. I will have to try your wonderful recipe for basil tea and lemon with black pepper and honey. A great suggestion to incorporate turmeric as well. Only I will put it in almond milk or soy milk as I don't drink dairy. This is a wonderful article to read and follow with easy and natural ways in improving our immunity and resistance. Thanks for sharing!

I can't speak for all the rest of the spices but turmeric, ginger, and garlic were sent from heaven! The health benefits are amazing! If they are not already available, then these 3 spices should be made available all over the world. If people can't find them in the stores they should learn how to grow them.
