What can we do feel better during the lockdown?

Updated: May 3, 2020

I have some good news for you:

We do have a choice about 2 things that can have a significant impact on our health during the virus outbreak:

1.The food we eat. 80% of our immune system resides in our guts. 80%!

2.The calmer and more in control we are the better our whole system functions. (Prolonged stress has a very negative impact on our immune system.)

As a Holistic Nutritionist, BMedSc (Hons), I thought I might share a few ideas on how to support our immune system at these critical times.

• Eating a rainbow of fresh fruits and vegetables, that can be easily washed well, organic if possible; Immune supporting foods are leafy greens, mushrooms, green lentils, onion, etc. Cooking a French onion soup would be a great idea

Avoiding sugary and processed food, including refined carbs, especially shop bought cakes, sweets, etc.;

• Eating garlic, ginger, turmeric, nourishing WARM home-cooked meals and drinking clove or nettle tea;

Oxygenating well our bodies by spending more time in nature, especially when it is sunny;

The amazing Stig Severinsen, Danish Biologist and 4-time world freediving champion offers free Breath Training in Corona Crisis™ course that aim to help you strengthen your lungs and Immune system - find more information here.

• You may decide to supplement with:

Propolis (bee glue)


Vitamin C

Vitamin D

Studies have shown that people with vitamin D deficiency are 11 times more likely to get a cold or flu.

• Drinking plenty of water - a glass of warm water or a tea every 1/2 an hour.

• Practising yoga, meditation, EFT (tapping) or anything that might be calming for your nervous system. Don’t forget to have enough sleep too. A relaxing or defence essential oil blend can be very beneficial;

• Being positive – perhaps watching a comedy, calling a dear friend with a good sense of humour and having a good laugh. As stress compromises our immune systems it is very important to do our best to lift the energy and be optimistic;

• Integrity and compassionate - Trying to support friends and the community.

Please share with loved ones – When we have our health and positive mindset we can achieve anything!

May you and your families be healthy and positive!

With love,
