Immune Health

Have you found yourself getting sick ALL THE TIME since we have come out of lockdown?

You are definitely not alone! Not only are we out of lockdown and socialising again, but I am finding many people are deficient in all of the essential nutrients that we need for a robust immune system. 

 

Immune Boosters: 

  • Vitamin D 

  • Zinc

  • Vitamin C 

  • Iron 

  • All of the B vitamins

  • Selenium 

  • Protein and all of the amino acids

 

Symptoms of a Low Immune System: 

  • Tiredness (you always have low energy)

  • Frequent infections (viral or bacterial)

  • Slow wound healing 

  • Chronic nasal drip 

  • Persistent cough

  • Joint and muscle aches

  • IBS 

  • Low tolerance for stress

 

How can we Help? 

Before your initial appointment we will gather a 7 day food diary from you to  assess your diet and see if you are getting enough essential nutrients to support your immune system. If there are gaps, we can alter your diet or supplement if necessary. Some work on your gastrointestinal health may be needed as about 80% of your immune system is located in your gut. 

If you have spoken to your GP about your symptoms you may have access to recent pathology so that we can see if you are at optimal levels rather than “just in range”. If you would prefer to test privately, we can easily arrange pathology for you.
