Looking after ourselves a little more this October

October is one of those months when we are most aware about the importance of staying well, attending regular check-ups with the practitioner we trust … in short, leading a healthy lifestyle.

We want to play a small part in this awareness by giving you a few key tips to stay healthy this year.

October: the pink month, the month dedicated to fighting breast cancer

October the 19th is International Breast Cancer Awareness Day. A disease that is still common and affects many women (and some men, although not so frequently) year after year.

There are several steps we can take to prevent this disease – things we can do at home such as:

Checking our breasts in front of a mirror every now and again.

– Leading a lifestyle that is as healthy as possible.

– Speaking to a specialist you trust WHENEVER you have a concern.

A simple act that could save your life. Don’t forget it!

Boost the immune system to stay healthy

Another factor to consider when the seasons change, especially in autumn, is strengthening our immune system.

Its more likely we can catch an infectious virus that affects the respiratory system when it is cold.

Why is the immune system important?

Because it is responsible for protecting our body against infections and environmental hazards that can harm our health.

Luckily there are various ways we can boost the immune system, including our diets and food supplements. What we eat always plays a major role.

Foods that help strengthen the immune system

These foods help boost and protect our immune system so try to include them in your diet regularly.

  • Broccoli, with a high content of antioxidants and anticancer properties.
  • Oranges and other citrus fruits thanks to their Vitamin C content.
  • Cranberries and pretty much all other red fruits because of their high antioxidant content.
  • Pulses, which contain lots of proteins, minerals and fibre.

Practical tips to boost your immune system

As well as specific foodstuffs and food supplements, it is important to:

  • Get enough quality sleep.
  • Maintain good personal hygiene and wash your hands frequently, especially before touching food we are going to eat.
  • Exercise regularly.
  • Mindfulness as a way of life: leave stress and worries behind because, although they are psychological, they heavily affect our immune response.
