If you have found yourself to be getting sick often this winter, here are some natural solutions for keeping a strong immunity. There are lots of nasty ‘bugs’ still floating around. As the snow melts, then arrives the airborne molds.

Prevention is the key. Take a look at your lifestyle. If you have been under a lot of stress and therefore usually followed by lack of sleep, your immune system will be on low function.

Stress Relief: Outdoor walks surrounded by nature, any exercise, meditation, yoga, pilates, massage, hot baths in epsom salts and essential oils such as lavender.

Supplement with a B-Complex, and nutrients like amino acids and Ashwagandha Root to blunt the cortisol — a hormone produced during stress that affects long term health.

Detoxify: If you are taking supplements they may not be absorbed unless internal toxins are removed. Reishi Mushroom, Dandelion and Milk Thistle offer great detoxifying properties. Add extra fiber, lots of purified water daily and an Acidophilus to re-populate the body with good friendly bacteria.

Rebuild: Supplement with clinically researched and organic vitamins proven to offer top quality and bioavailability to the body.

Suggested daily regime: 2 Multivitamin, antioxidants such as Vitamin C – 1,000 mg, (up to 2,500 mg per day if immunity is low), Omega 3 Fish Oils, Beta Carotene, Vita E (can find in 1 vitamin), raw Soy Protein powder.

Take the time to take care of you, your health is the most important asset you have!
