A great immune system gives you a wonderful advantage against viruses, and any other illnesses that could potentially compromise your health in the colder months.


Here are some great tips for keeping your immune system nice and robust in these particularly stressful times:

Get sufficient sleep! When you sleep you heal. Without adequate sleep, optimal immune function is almost impossible. It's time to head to bed earlier, turn off those devices at least 1hr before bed and practice your relaxing pre-sleep rituals like meditation, baths and deep breathing. If you need assistance with sleep - please get in touch, there are so many things we can do to improve this for you.


Regular Exercise for Immunity :-) 30-45mins of mild to moderate exercise helps boost the immune system. If you're short on time, there are great 7-min workout apps available too. Go for a walk or a jog in the sunshine, it will boost your Vitamin D levels which is great for your immunity. Even with social distancing measures in place there are many exercises we can do at home.


Eat Fermented Foods to Support Your Gut

Health begins in the gut (FULLSTOP).

Did you know fermented foods feeds all the good bacteria in your GI-tract and supports your immune system. Now is the time to try sauerkraut, kimchi, miso, tempeh, unsweetened yogurt and kefir.


Practice your Stress Reducers...

Increased levels of stress increases susceptibility to viral infections. Did you know that when they transplant organs into donors bodies they inject you with STRESS HORMONES to lower your immune system so the body doesn't reject the organ? That's how suppressive stress is on the immune system. Now is the time to learn or double down on your meditation practice, do yoga, take warm baths with epsom salts and essential oils, practice deep breathing and even give loved ones massages whilst self isolating.

There are SOOOOO many wonderful kinesiology techniques that can assist with all of the above, from clearing blocks around exercise and rebalancing sleep hormones to stress reducing exercises.
