Boost your Immune System

Colds and Flu are spread more easily during the winter season due to the cold weather, we spend less time outside and turn the heating up indoors.  Here’s some useful tips to boost your immune system over the coming months, I recommend booking your Winter MOT with me to make sure you have the right remedies and nutrition to keep you going.

Take a Daily Probiotic

80% of our immune function takes place in the gut so a healthy gut is paramount at all times of the year, but especially during the winter months.  We need to feed and replenish the gut flora regularly, especially when we get an acute cold, a fever or an upset stomach.  For those taking antibiotics and medication these can seriously disrupt your gut flora for some time after, as can alchol and we’re in the season where Christmas Parties and social get to gethers are about to hit us in full swing!  Signs that your gut flora is under pressure include candida symptoms, fatigue, poor sleep, stomach discomfort and bloating.  Anyone who has had constipation, diarrhea, thrush or an upset tummy can benefit from a regular dose of probiotics.  I recommend ProB11 to my clients approx. £25.50 , and for Children Acti Biotic £23.95 for a 50 day supply, multi strain formula – non GM, no flavourings or preservatives.  Probiotics are beneficial to children as well as adults, you’ll find the link to order here   For Childrens supplements give me a call 07942 868118

Take an immune support supplement

If you’re more susceptible to coughs, colds, sore throats and flu then I recommend you take Master Gland £14.41 approx. it helps to regular the glandular and nervous system.  Master Gland £14.41  The glandular and nervous systems work together to regulate all of the body’s processes, including growth, metabolism, digestion, elimination, menstruation and sleep. The glandular (endocrine) system communicates using chemical messengers called hormones that stimulate reactions that may last from a few hours to several days. The endocrine system functions best when it has ample stores of minerals, particularly trace minerals.For example, the thyroid gland maintains proper metabolic rates and levels of body fluids when it has ample iodine. Similarly, the pancreas, which controls blood sugar levels, needs chromium. Eating foods rich in trace minerals helps support the body’s glandular functions, but unfortunately, many foods that are a mainstay of the modern diet are low in trace minerals.

Take Essential Fatty Acids all year

I recommend you take these all year, my favourite are the Omegas 3 6 9 from Flaxseeds at £17.95   For Children I have a liquid bottle that you can collect or order direct from me.

Immune Support for Children

I have a range of supplements available for children, all high quality, Vegetarian, Vegan and Gluten free, non GMO and free from preservatives and colourings.  Give me a call on 07942 868118 to order.

Silver Shield

Having some silver shield in your medicine cupboard is a must!  It always goes with me in my suitcase and recently my friend Debbie and I got through almost a whole bottle on our last business trip, with air con, a long haul flight and change of weather hitting our immune systems full on.  The use of colloidal silver was very popular until the 1940’s when modern synthesized antibiotics took its place. Since the 1970’s the use of colloidal silver has become more popular with people seeking out alternative therapies for common health issues like colds.  Click here to read more.

Homeopathy for Flu

If it’s too late and you haven’t been supporting your immune system, then please call me for your Flu Remedies (£3 per pack).  For those of you with the Homeopathic kit from me, take a look at these remedies and give me a call for your telephone consulation.

Gelsemium more of a summer flu, heavy, drowsy, dull headache, achey muscles, not too much thirst.

Phosphorus Feeling chilly but very thirsty wanting cold drinks, anxious and feeling knocked out with no energy, burning pains (children needing phosphorus generally have a high fever but apart from that feel perfectly fine).

Arsenicum Feeling chilly, anxious and restless, they don’t stay in bed and get everything done before they can get sick.  They want warm drinks and often citrus flavours, drinking little and often.  Arsenicum tends to be worse at night and completely exhausted.

Eupatorium Perfoliatum Classic flu symptoms, great thirst, bone pains more than muscular pains.  Sweating helps all the symptoms but they oftne have a headache which isn’t helped.

Bryonia Often grumpy, they constanly bite your head off, very thirsty, irritable and worse for moving around.  This is great for the flu with bad headaches too.
