As we head into a long winter and with a high level of influenza cases already reported, including almost 40 deaths in South Australia alone, there is no better time than NOW to consider your immune health – even if you have been vaccinated.

There are two influenza viruses (A & B) and many other respiratory viruses and bacterial agents which are less serious but just as contagious, so it’s important to maintain good hygiene practices to limit the spread of these illnesses. However, many of you may be unaware that each individual’s nutritional status will have a direct influence on how efficiently their immune system will respond to a potential infection.

There are other factors to consider: 

  • Stress levels – the hormones produced as part of the fight or flight response will tend to decrease necessary white cell production and activity. 
  • Digestive health – 80% of the immune system is in the small intestine, with our gut lining providing a valuable mucosal-defense.
  • Lifestyle factors – are also important considerations for immune health and overall wellbeing and these will be thoroughly explored in your Naturopathic consultation.
