Recover and Boost Your Immunity Naturally, After Covid-19 Vaccination
Step-up your recovery game with natural ways to boost your immune system after a Covid-19 vaccine or booster shot.
In the past two years, the pandemic has shown us the importance of keeping our immune system strong. With Covid-19 related vaccinations and booster shots now part and parcel of our lives, understanding how vaccines work and how to naturally boost our immune system are key. It is important to looking into natural ingredients to strengthen our immunity to complement Covid-19 vaccination.
First, How Do Vaccines Work and How Do They Impact Our Immune System?
In the simplest terms, vaccines imitate an infection to stimulate a response from the immune system to a pathogen (virus, bacterium, parasite or fungus). Traditionally vaccines contain weakened or inactive parts of a particular pathogen and usually does not cause a disease in the person receiving the vaccine, but just create a chance for immune system to recognise and learn how to protect our bodies from the same pathogen and prevent disease that it causes. An mRNA vaccine is a type of vaccine that uses a copy of molecule called messenger RNA (mRNA) to elicit immune response. Upon exposure, antibodies which can be considered as soldiers in your body’s defence system will be produced, at the same time it also creates antibody-producing memory cells. With that our body would have developed a strong defence response to the specific antigen, which it can call out again at a later stage should the body is exposed to the same pathogen again.
Although vaccination usually does not bring on a full-blown infection or severe side effects, mild side effects like soreness at injection site, fatigue, headache and fever are commonly reported. If the side effects are mild, there is usually no need for concern, as they serve as proof that our bodies are responding adequately to the foreign pathogen and emerge stronger in the future. However, there are things that we can do to feel better as well as strengthen our immune system after vaccination.
Ministry Of Health Singapore listed tiredness or fatigue as one of the common side effects and the recommended solution is to rest, take a nap during daytime or get sufficient sleep at night. Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) believes that sleep is vital to keeping our internal Qi balance, as well as restoring energy level.
If you have existing problem with sleep or unable to have a restful sleep due to discomfort post vaccination, try taking a natural supplement like Eu Yan Sang’s sleep formula. It’s packed with natural herbs and designed to give you a more restful sleep. Simply dissolve the granules into hot water and drink the suspension, take before or in between meals.
2. Eat The Right Food
Known side effects such as fever, body ache, fatigue, and headache commonly occur as inflammatory immune response is being triggered post-vaccination. Although there is not enough research to support that anti-inflammatory food or supplements such as Vitamin C will make the Covid-19 vaccine more effective. But it is sensible that eating highly nutritious food and taking Vitamin C will help the immune system and avoid further inflammation. Some recommended food to eat after vaccination includes those high in Vitamin C such as tomatoes, cruciferous greens, citrus fruits and many more. Eu Yan Sang’s Goji Essence Boost which contains 1000mg Vitamin C and goji which is a superfood well known for its strong antioxidant property is also a great and convenient choice that can be taken daily. As well as anti-inflammatory food like garlic, onion, fatty fish, and others. A well-balanced diet is key to many aspects of our overall health, including our immune system.
At the same time, nourish the gut as the microbiome found there makes up a large part of your immune system. Avoid processed junk, refined sugars (including artificial sweeteners), dairy, refined grains, vegetable oils, dairy, alcohol, and fried foods. Having a good gut health is incredibly important to maintaining our immunity.
3. Stay Hydrated
One of the important things that doctors recommend before or after Covid-19 vaccination is to make sure you stay hydrated. Headache is a common side-effect of the vaccines and being dehydrated can exacerbate that pain. Reduce or avoid drinking alcohol or beverages that might cause dehydration like coffee and tea. Plain water is the best but if you find it boring you can always add some sliced lemon or cucumber into plain water for a refreshing drink. Hydrate yourself by drinking fluid throughout the day and not wait until you are thirsty.
4. Nourish Qi
According to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), Qi is the vital energy or life force that circulate throughout the body. TCM practitioners believe that when a person’s Qi is balanced and in harmony, they’ll benefit from good physical and mental health. When one has Qi deficiency illnesses or other conditions may occur.
Restoring your Qi can be done through different ways and one of them is consuming TCM. American Ginseng replenishes body’s Yin, which boosts Qi, hydrates body, and clears body heat. Codonopsis roots, or dang shen, nourish blood and vital energy.

Lingzhi has been recognized as a medicinal mushroom for over 2000 years, it is a highly prized vitality-enhancing herb.
