Go with your gut-instinct!
Chunky knits, crunchy leafs and hot chocolates by a roaring fire! I just love this time of year.
However, as we all begin to feel the temperatures plummet it’s time to take out the long johns and woolly socks.
Almost the entire country has a runny nose, a sandpaper throat and aching limbs and there is nothing fun about feeling under the weather.
But, fear not, there are a few basic steps to take to boost your immunity and to prevent the colds from returning and being sick for Christmas.
While it’s important to stock up on Vitamin C, modern lifestyles and increased stress can have a huge impact on our gut bacteria and this can effect our overall health. A weak immune system puts us at greater risk of nasty colds and flus and surprise surprise a healthy diet is associated with a good immune.
You will notice a lot in my videos that I advise you to stay away from processed foods, sugars and refined carbohydrates. My family hate me and hide their food when the see me but the reason I tell you to avoid why is because it adds extra stress on your immune. Processed foods feed like monsters in your tummy and will feed on unwanted bacteria and yeast in the gut encouraging multiple growth thus make you feel like you’ve been run over by a bus.
I encourage my clients always to plate high with phytonutrient rich foods, such as fresh fruit and vegetable as there is evident that phytonutrients have antiviral properties.
Try drinking some probiotics also like natural yoghurt. Probiotics impress and restore the gut flora which in turn improves gut function which will make you feel naturally good.
