How to Manage Cold & Flu Symptoms This Winter

How to Manage Cold & Flu Symptoms This Winter

Despite your best efforts at preventing infection through diet, exercise and supplementation, at some stage this winter you may succumb to a cold or flu. This can occur particularly if stress or life events get in the way of maintaining the healthy habits that help keep your immune system strong. The good news is that should you find yourself ‘under the weather’, there are measures you can take to get you back on your feet. Going Viral Both the common cold and influenza (flu) are caused by viruses, most commonly the rhinovirus. What many people may not realise is that antibiotics only target bacteria and are not able to kill the viruses responsible for colds and flu. Fortunately, there are herbs and nutrients that can help manage these viral infections and keep your immune defences strong. Herbal Heroes A number of traditional herbs have been clinically shown to improve immune function and reduce symptoms of the common cold and flu. For example, use of the Ayurvedic herb andrographis can reduce both the severity and duration of cold and flu symptoms. In addition, picorrhiza has been used traditionally in both Ayurvedic and Chinese medicine to help maintain a healthy immune system, and it is now understood that this herb has both anti-inflammatory and immune-stimulating actions. Elderberry is a mainstay of traditional Western herbalism for its anti-catarrhal and fever-reducing activity, helping to relieve acute cold symptoms as well as recurrent coughs. If you are unwell with a respiratory virus, your Practitioner can recommend a herbal formula that contains these immune-supporting heroes.

How to Choose a High Quality Fish Oil

How to Choose a High Quality Fish Oil

The increasing awareness around the wide-ranging benefits of fish oil mean chances are either you or someone close to you is taking a fish oil product. Their therapeutic effects are widely accepted by both the lay and medical communities alike and they are readily available to purchase in health food stores, pharmacies and even supermarkets. Nevertheless, are you getting precisely what you bargained for in terms of both efficacy and purity when you purchase that mega-tub of fish oil from your local supermarket? WHAT SHOULD BE IN YOUR FISH OIL? A high quality fish oil supplement is the ideal source of omega-3 essential fatty acids. However, not all fish oils provide the same benefits. The active constituents in fish oil, known as EPA and DHA, are used in varying therapeutic amounts for different health concerns. For example, EPA assists in relieving the pain and inflammation of mild arthritis, helps maintain cardiovascular health and plays a role in mood regulation. DHA supports normal healthy brain development, improves memory and cognition, and is important for the health of your nervous system. A high quality, high strength fish oil may also help you maintain a normal ratio between the ‘good’ and ‘bad’ types of cholesterol as well as help maintain normal triglyceride levels. The label on your tub may claim each fish oil capsule contains ‘1000 mg of fish oil’ but ask your practitioner how much of the omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA are you actually getting? Your practitioner can recommend a prescription fish oil with high concentrations of EPA (up to 2000 mg per dose) and DHA (up to 800...

Has 2015 Left You Feeling Drained and Exhausted?

Has 2015 Left You Feeling Drained and Exhausted?

The demand of today’s modern world often means most people are living extremely stressful lives, so it’s normal to feel tired sometimes. This fatigue and tiredness generally resolves itself after some rest and relaxation. However persistent tiredness is becoming a major problem for many people. Fatigue is a common condition many of my patients present with in clinic. However, sadly it is often misunderstood and at times even dismissed, particularly if there is no easily identifiable cause. Do you have to drag yourself out of bed and struggle through the day? Or rely on caffeine to wake you up in the mornings? You may be deficient in a few key nutrients.   What Causes Fatigue? The following factors can contribute to chronic fatigue and tiredness: Low iron levels Infection Stress (physical and emotional) Poor dietary choices Small intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO) Inflammation Excess body fat Hormonal Imbalances Toxicity Unstable blood sugar levels Physical inactivity Poor digestion, malabsorption Liver dysfunction Insufficient sleep There are multiple reasons why you may feel fatigued. A natural health practitioner can help identify which factors may be affecting you, and alleviate them through a customized treatment plan. Essentially, when your body systems are not working at their optimum levels, it can affect you both physically and mentally, having an effect on all aspects of your life.   Nutrients to Help Kick Fatigue to the Curb Magnesium – Magnesium is an essential mineral when addressing fatigue, it is utilized in over 300 chemical processes in your body!
