This time of year seems to be the time when we shut the windows, stay inside and all too often, get sick. People frequently suffer from more colds and flus in the winter months, closed spaces, less sun and vitamin D and close quarters events all lead to the spread of these nasty bugs and viruses.
To safeguard yourself from infection it’s very important to remember these tips and tools to supercharge your immunity. Remember, you may get a virus and that may lead to infection symptoms including cough, runny and stuffy nose, congestion and body aches as well as fatigue. Most often, these symptoms are completely normal and should not be suppressed as this is the way that our natural immune system can learn how to recognize these invaders and overcome them. If symptoms worsen to productive cough with thick nasty green or brown phlegm, then it may be time to have your symptoms evaluated, but please remember that antibiotics are only for bacterial infections and ask about any complications, side effect and interaction of any drugs you are prescribed. Be informed!
Boost Up With D
Your immunity requires Vitamin D in order to fight infection, heal tissues, produce hormones and other vital chemical signal compounds for cells to “talk” to each other. We often find that we get greater amounts of Vitamin D in the Summer when we are outside more, but when the weather changes, who wants to be out in the cold with exposed skin? No one!
The key is, what is the right amount of Vitamin D supplements? Unfortunately, without testing, you cannot guess. To little has consequences like poor bone and muscle health and poor immunity and increased imbalances in hormones and too much can also have and impact on your mood and kidneys and muscles poorly. If you are interested in finding out exactly how much Vitamin D you need to be taking to make sure your body is pumping on all cylinders, call us, we can order the tests that will show us how well your immune system is functioning as well as your individual levels of Vit D. Once we know this, we can prescribe exactly the right amount!

Stand up straight for better health!
Your posture influences every aspect of your health. Having poor posture leads to stresses and strains in the muscles, tendon, ligaments, bone and soft tissues, but most importantly it leads to stresses and strains in the nervous system. Your nervous system functions best at a state of equilibrium. If you have abnormal postures, these stresses and strains will lessen your nervous systems ability to efficiently send signals to and from the different parts of the body. It has long been known that the nervous system is ultimately in charge of every other system in the body including the immune system. Stresses and strain in the immune system can lead to reduction in lymphatic and alterations in white blood cells which can increase the likelihood of getting a disease.
