I can't wait for Spring to begin here in Australia! BUT I always find that during the season change from cold to warmer weather, I usually catch a cold. Instead of taking cold and flu tablets or vitamins after I start to feel unwell, I have natural goodies to boost my immune system and help fight against any nasty colds! Here are 6 you should try.
P rimary way to help body get rid of microbial infections. Effective against both bacterial and viral attacks.
Great for respiratory issues or other conditions with mucus and inflammation. Can also strengthen cell membranes. (Look into uses via elderflower in tea etc).
When feeling unwell, you can add sliced ginger to tea or as a gargle for sore throats. It is a great appetite stimulant and when you have a fever it helps rid your body of the pathogen causing the fever.
Strongly antiseptic and anti-microbial, helps settle chesty coughs.
N atural antibiotic with many healing properties. Anti-viral and anti-fungal. Try take it raw as cooking it reduces some of its therapeutic value.
One of the most important minerals when it comes to having a healthy immune system. Zinc is found in red meat, seafood (especially oysters), oats and mushrooms.
Look after yourself, girls!
