Tips for building a strong immune system as you age

Overall, your immune system works well to defend your body against microorganisms that can increase your risk of diseases. However, sometimes the defense wall isn’t strong enough. As you age, it’s important to take precautionary measures to build a strong, healthy immune system to lessen your chance of developing harmful diseases and illnesses.

To function well, your immune system needs quality love and care. By choosing to restore your health and follow the My Hallelujah Diet – a program that follows specific dietary suggestions to help you rebuild your immune system – you can cleanse your body of the toxins that often weaken your cells and make you sick. By following this diet and rearranging your everyday habits, you can restore your self-healing mechanism, so innate self-healing can be carried out the way our Lord intended.

Consider these lifestyle tips to rebuild your immune system and restore your health:

Fuel your body with nutrients to support a strong immune system.

Eat a well-balanced diet

By eating plenty of fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds and whole grains, your body will be fueled with the nutrients it needs to build a strong immune system. These health foods are chock-full of antioxidants, probiotics, and infection-fighting properties that help your immune system absorb vitamins and nutrients to fight illness. Eating a diet with high fat content can do the complete opposite, weakening the immune system to the point of completely shutting it down.

Exercise regularly

Once you’ve established healthy eating habits, consider how often you exercise. According to a study conducted by Appalachian State University, those who spent five or more days a week performing aerobic exercise spent 43 percent less days experiencing upper-respiratory infections, thus proving physical activity can indeed boost the immune system. Consider setting aside 30 to 60 minutes a day for exercise.

Wash your hands often

Keeping your hands clean might be a task you’re overlooking. It’s actually one of the most crucial steps in protecting your immune system from cold and flu viruses. It’s suggested to clean and dry your hands often throughout the day, especially after handling food and using the restroom. Don’t forget to replace damp towels with dry ones frequently, as they are a place where bacteria tend to thrive.


Washing your hands is a simple step you can take to reduce your exposure to bacteria.

Follow a regular sleep schedule

You know that getting a good night’s sleep is crucial for feeling refreshed, but did you know that it plays a large role in keeping your immune system healthy? According to a study conducted by Carnegie Mellon University, people who slept less than seven hours each night were three times more likely to catch a cold than those who slept eight hours or more. Consider your current sleeping schedule. Are you getting enough rest at night to feel well when you wake up in the morning?

Consider a supplemental program

My Hallelujah Diet encourages you to eat a variety of fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds and whole grains to boost your immunity, but we also offer a number of supplements that can aid the immune-boosting process. Hallelujah Diet Liposomal Vitamin C, Hallelujah Diet Nascent Iodine, Silver Biotics and Selenium / Glutathione Promoter are four supplements offered that support a healthy immune system to fight viruses as severe as the Ebola virus and as simple as the common cold.

    Hi, my 83 years old mother has as much as I can remember always have problems with her digestive system. Especially whenever she eats any kind of vegetables she will end up with abdominal discomforts, diarrhea and in some cases gas. Most times it keeps her awake at night. Over the years she has tried so many treatment, food elimination process and has ended up avoiding almost every vegetable and fruits. When she does eat some she prepared her self for the uncomfortable outcomes. Right now with her very bad knee arthritis , she can barely eat any food that can help reduce her arthritic discomfort. What can you suggest for her.

    • Even with significant GI issues, a person should be able to use probiotics aggressively (1 twice daily of the H. Diet PS Probiotic), incorporate small meals of well cooked vegetables, have small servings of BarleyMax and fresh vegetable juice. Important to get the omega 3 fats (flax seed oil, Pharmax fish oil) and to get blood levels of vitamin D up to 50 to 80 ng/ml, and include vitamin K2 supplementation to encourage calcium removal from the bloodstream and into the bones.

  3. You mentioned that people who exercised at least five or more days in a week are less likely to get infected with respiratory-related illnesses. If that is the case, I will be sure to encourage my little girl to join me when I do my daily exercise. She was born with a weak immune system and prefers to keep things to herself. I plan on taking her to a medical professional for immunization, but I do think that exercise is a good maintenance activity as well.
