Throughout the colder months, people are more susceptible to infections because we tend to stay in close quarters with others more so than the warmer months, and we also don’t get enough sunshine. Sunshine helps our bodies to make vitamin D, which is necessary for supporting and boosting the immune system.
There are so many other essential nutrients that assist with immune system support such as zinc, vitamins A, B, C and E, and probiotics just to name a few! In certain circumstances, a naturopath can provide you with a tailored herbal remedy to assist in the treatment of an acute infection, such as a cold or persistent cough, to relieve some nasty symptoms that may be keeping you awake at night.
Naturopaths utilise the powerful effects of food as medicine, and also the benefits of practitioner only supplements and herbal remedies. A naturopath can also provide you with continuity of care for other conditions that affect the immune system such as hay fever, allergies, sensitivities, and autoimmune conditions.
