7 Ways to Boost Immunity During the Coronavirus Pandemic

New Coronavirus cases are spreading at alarming rates throughout the entire world, and in Toronto as well. Experts across the board have stated that one of the best ways that you have to prevent contracting the virus is by making sure that you have a strong immune system. Thankfully, there are many holistic ways to boost immunity during the coronavirus pandemic.

At Timeless Health Clinic, our focus has always been keeping our downtown Toronoto patients as healthy and resilient as possible. It’s amazing what natural boosters can do for your health and immunity. That said, here are some of the best ways to boost immunity during the Coronavirus pandemic.

7 Top Holistic Ways To Boost Immunity

#1: Boost Your Respiratory System

First and foremost, refrain from smoking anything, as smoking greatly impacts the strength of your respiratory system. Also, it’s a good idea to try to get some heat into your respiratory system. An at-home sauna is ideal. If you feel any sort of congestion, can also try steam tents with eucalyptus oil and other decongesting herbs.

It’s also a good idea to increase the intake of some lung-specific herbs including:

  • Mullein (verbascum thapsus)

  • Coltsfoot (tussilago)

  • Inula

  • Oregano oil

  • Quercetin

#2 Make Sure You’re Getting Enough Vitamin C

Insufficient vitamin C intake is a global problem. High doses of vitamin C by way of IV therapy delivers the powerful antioxidant directly into the bloodstream. Intravenous administration of vitamin C has a 20X higher absorption rate than when taken orally through supplementation.

#3: Get Immune-Boosting Supplements

There are an overwhelming amount of supplements for immunity. These are some of the top supplements:

  • Vitamin D

  • Zinc

  • Electrolytes

  • B-Vitamins

  • Immune-boosting HCL

  • Sugar-free elderberry syrup

  • Echinacea

  • Goldenseal

  • Astragalus

  • Licorice root

  • Reishi

  • Ligusticum

  • St. John's wort

You can get many of these supplements in one powerful go with the Immune Boosting IV.

#4: Quality Sleep

Without sufficient sleep, your body makes fewer cytokines, a type of protein that targets infection and inflammation, which makes it more likely for you to get sick. Most experts recommend at least 6-8 hours of sleep a night.

But it’s not just the quantity, rather the quality of sleep that boosts your immunity. Many people find that they wake up far more times in the middle of the night than they realize. If you’re having difficulty falling and staying asleep, try taking magnesium and Omega-3 fatty acids in the evening.

#5: Eat the Right Types of Foods

Diet is one of the best ways to fortify your body and keep your immune system strong. Eat leafy green and colorful vegetables, especially going for purple, orange, yellow, and red colors.

Cruciferous vegetables provide valuable prebiotics - so that your body can use probiotics for immunity.

Also make sure you’re getting nuts, seeds, and grass fed meat and poultry that is high in zinc and other valuable nutrients. 

#6: Avoid Certain Foods/Drinks


  1. Fried food

  2. Sugary Foods

  3. Excess processed foods

  4. Alcohol

#7: Meditation & Other Mindful Practices

Stress triggers a hormone called corticosteroid, which suppresses the effectiveness of the immune system. With all the worries we currently have about the coronavirus,

it’s vital we destress with mindful practices, including:

  • Meditation

  • Breathwork

  • Yoga
