Are you at the mercy of winter each year? Colds, flus, sore throats, fevers and fatigue are the leading reason for time away from work and school. So NOW is the perfect time to boost your immune system and charge your body. Prevention is always better than cure!
Viruses are commonly the causes of colds and flus, rather than bacteria so antibiotics should not be the first port of call to treat a common cold. Some herbs and minerals we use in the clinic, both as preventers and for treatment of acute/chronic cases include: Andrographis, Elderberry, Echinacea, Zinc, Vitamin D and Vitamin C. But did you know that your gut also accounts for up to 80% of your immune system?
So your diet and overall functioning of your digestive system directly affects your immunity. Lactobacillus acidophilus, Lactobacillus rhamnosus and Bifidobacterium lactose have been shown to help boost your immune system, and in fact when children of pre-school age take these regularly, have less frequent bouts of runny noses and gastro infections than kids not taking any probiotics.
We have all of those supplements in-store, some of them as liquid tinctures if required. We take pride in only stocking Practitioner prescribed products. Not only are they the highest quality supplements, with no artificial additives or contaminants, but they undergo rigorous testing to ensure the active ingredients are present, unlike some retail bought
products. You get what you pay for!
