These are signs that indicate how strong your immune system is likely to be. The more times you answer yes, the more pressure your immune system is likely to under.
We use food to make every part of our immune system, so its strength depends on the type and quality of the food we eat. So how does our immune system work and which foods boost its function?
You can find answers to these questions at a Cooking for Health class focused on “Boosting Your Immune System”.
The class involves 100% hands-on practical cooking in a small, supervised group, combined with teaching of up-to-date information and research findings on the effects of diet on health. Clear, easy-to-follow presentations and handouts are provided with plenty of opportunity for questions and discussion.
