Our immune system is the primary defense against different bacteria and germs that attack our body. It consists of organs and tissues that work together to defeat diseases.

The lungs are one of the most important organs of the system – through them, we are able to inhale and store oxygen while exhaling carbon dioxide through the nose. However, when the nose is blocked by mucus it affects the function of the lungs, leaving the body more prone to diseases. Luckily for you, we have a simple natural mixture that can strengthen your immune system and can safely be used by people of all ages.

Mucus buildup and lung problems

Children are more prone to diseases due to their developing immune systems. They are most often affected by colds and coughs, which can drag on for months if there’s mucus buildup in the lungs.

Mucus is created in our body – about 1-2 liters of it is produced every day. We usually spit it out, but sometimes it clogs our lungs and creates bigger problems. The mucus buildup can also be caused by other things such as allergies, and when it becomes a serious problem, there’s a greenish phlegm or blood mixed with it. This means that you should see a doctor immediately.

The importance of the immune system for our bodies

The main role of the immune system is to protect the body against diseases. It first identifies threats in the form of bacteria, viruses, parasites and germs and differentiates them from the healthy tissues and bacteria. The lymph nodes, a viral part of the immune system, produce and store the antibodies which fight the diseases, while the spleen, which contains white blood cells controls the amount of blood in the body.

Another component of the immune system, the bone marrow, produces white blood cells and stores stem cells, special type of cells which can morph into any kind of human cell. All these parts work together to keep us safe and healthy.

The magic drink that will boost your immune system

The drink contains oats, honey and water. Rinse the oats first and add them to a glass of honey and water (100 ml. per glass). Boil the mixture for a couple of minutes, then leave it to infuse overnight. In the morning, strain it and store the mixture in a glass bottle. You can keep it in your fridge for up to a week.

Drink 30-40 ml. of the beverage every morning on an empty stomach. It is safe for children and can boost their developing immune system. Repeat the process for 40 days, then take a 15-day break and continue for another 40 days. Never miss a day, and your immune system will be strengthened soon.

The drink will also eliminate mucus in your lungs and throat and clear any other obstructions if needed.
