The weather is changing and winter is on its way. Heaters are being turned on and extra clothing is being dragged out. With this season comes the sniffles and colds we all hope will give us a miss.
A good functioning immune system will experience 1-2 colds over the year, which should be resolved in a relatively short timeframe. Is this what your immune system looks like? Or does it take weeks for you to get rid of that pesky cold. Do they take much longer to resolve and turn into another cold or condition? Are you feeling run down and not able to get that spring back into your step?
Maybe you need some Winter Resilience! This is when you boost up your immune system to be able to throw off these colds at a faster rate! Or resolve that sore throat! Stop the tingling sensation to ensure it doesn’t eventuate into that dreaded cold sore!
When I feel the beginning of a cold coming on, I go straight for my trusty homemade chicken soup. This has loads of garlic, ginger and turmeric along with veggies and protein all which help reduce inflammation and improve immune function.
Do you have kids that are exposed to a multitude of diseases either at childcare or school? This is unavoidable but it doesn’t mean you should put up with the sickness that comes home. Maybe the kids need a boost along with yourself?
Having a healthy immune system doesn’t just stop colds and flu, it can help improve asthma, eczema and allergies as well. Not only that, when you are well, you function much better in your job, home or school situation.
So if you want to feel good and stay strong this winter then book in for a winter resilience consultation. If you have a family then message me for family deal.
