When you feed your immune system, you improve its fighting power. Your immune system and white blood cells work together to fight infections. White blood cells are produced in our bone marrow. A normal white blood cell count is somewhere in the area of 5,000 to 10,000 white blood cells per microliter of blood. Persons with less than 3,500 are considered to a low count, also called neutropenia. Numbers of less than 1,000 are considered to be dangerously low and an indicator that the person is at great risk of developing an infection of some kind.

You can naturally increase your white blood cell count, which in turn improves your overall immune system, by making sure you consume sufficient amounts of the following 10 foods and/or vitamins and minerals. If you find you pick up every little cold or flu bug that goes by, you can turn things around naturally. Keep reading to find out the 10 natural ways to improve your white blood cell count and immune system into high gear.


1. Vitamin E

Although this little vitamin doesn’t get the press that vitamin C does, it’s one of the most important antioxidant and immune boosters around.

Vitamin E naturally stimulates the production of what are known as “killer cells.” These are cells that seek out and kill off germs and cancer cells. Vitamin E also improves the production of B-cells. These are cells from your immune system that produce antibodies that will kill bacteria. Vitamin E supplements may actually reverse of the decline in immune system response that is often seen in the elderly. The Harvard School of Public Health studies about 87,000 nurses and found that vitamin E supplements cut the risk of heart attacks by an incredible 50 percent!

It’s not that hard to get 60mg of vitamin E each day from your diet. Seeds and grains will get you most of what you need, but most people find it difficult to consistently get that 60mg every single day, and if you smoke, don’t exercise, or drink more than your share of alcohol, you will need between 100 to 40mg each day to keep your immune system strong. Taking supplements is a good idea for most people.

      buy organic tumeric powder and put a teaspoon of it in all meals and beverages that you can. get sun exposure for at least 10 – 15 minutes every day on as much body surface. strip down to underwear or nude if you have privacy. eat kale spinach salad every day or make green smoothie every single day with several organic greens and fruit if possible. avoid all wheat and sugar foods. limit dairy, buy organic. butter is okay. eat plenty of lean high quality protein grassfed meats, organic nuts, seeds and legumes, fatty fish like wild-caught salmon. drink 2-3 cups of plain green tea every day. try to get at least 2-3 hours of exercise per week. try walking and light jogging. eat any and all foods that are very high in antioxidants. eat cold pressed olive oil and avocados (good fats). reduce stressors. laughter boosts immune system. see good friends and family often, but only if they don’t cause you stress. do yoga, meditate whenever possible. and do deep breathing every day 8 times in a row (once in morning when you wake up and once in evening before bed). get 7-8 hours of sleep.
