I have been shovelling high dose garlic capsules and buckets of Vitamin C into myself as have been battling a cold, cough and sinus infection. Thankfully, I don’t get sick often but at this time of year it’s difficult to avoid catching something.
Whilst it’s normal to pick up a couple of colds a year, if you are constantly getting viral, bacterial or fungal infections then you may need to have a deeper look at your overall health and immunity. This can involve a detailed look at your diet and lifestyle, addressing possible nutrient deficiencies and very importantly the health of your gut and your gut microbiome. From recurring thrush and urinary tract infections to tonsillitis, sinus and chest infections, nutritional therapy can work wonders.
If you would like a bespoke nutritional plan which includes supplementation recommendations, meal plans and recipe packs then get in touch!
With that in mind, here is the latest article I wrote for EUMOM on strengthening your immunity. I hope you’ll find some useful tips for you and your family.
