Thank you to those who joined the Winter Health workshop.
Included below is a summary of the key points covered, for you to put some of the suggestions into action. For those who did not make it, we hope these top tips will prove useful for you also.
Consider Gut Balance
70% of your immune system resides in the gut and balance can be affected by poor diet, sugar and alcohol. A healthy and nutritious diet can help to support optimum gut health.
“Eat Food, Not Too Much, Mostly Plants
Focus on a plant-based, whole foods, unprocessed natural diet to give your body the nutrients and vitamins it needs. Eat until you’re 80% full to allow your body to digest food effectively.
These contain higher nutrient density than other foods and can boost your health with each serving. Get more dark green leafy vegetables, berries, legumes, wholegrains / ancient grains, deep coloured fruit and vegetables, oily fish and avocados in your diet.
Support Your Immunity
Think about adding raw garlic / onion, turmeric, ginger, medicinal mushrooms, oats and green tea / matcha to boost your overall immunity
Probiotics, good quality multivitamins, vitamin D3, fish oil, spirulina / chlorella, echinacea and wheatgrass can help to plug nutritional gaps and protect your body when you may not be living or eating as healthily as you would like.
Think About Balance In All Areas Of Your Life
Lifestyle imbalances (e.g. sleep, exercise, home cooking, relationships) can affect your immunity so consider what changes you may need to make to have a more even approach overall.
