Immune Boosting Remedies

1 2 3

The body suffers a shock of some sort during seasonal change. Changes in temperature and environmental factors can knock the body’s natural immune function quite sharply- even if you generally look after your health and wellbeing!  As the winter season (or indeed the life around us) switches so should our health and wellbeing focus; the main thing that can suffer is our immune function during winter and times of stress so it makes sense to shift that to a higher priority on your health goal list! 


Stress and the Immune System

Thankfully, there are numerous ways of improving our immune system. If we think in the most basic terms, we need to make sure that we are eating reasonably well, managing our alcohol intake, exercising regularly, and of course, ensuring that we also get enough rest so that our body can regenerate and repair from the stress of the day. We cannot avoid a certain level of stress but we can do our best to ensure it stays at a reasonable level so that it doesn’t impact our mental, physical, and emotional wellbeing. 

A reasonable level of stress may be felt every few days or so. Stress begins to impact our health and overall immune function if it is constant. Stress depletes the body of its natural resources to stay well, it impacts our hormonal function and this can set the body off on a rollercoaster of anxiety, lethargy, and feeling low with far shorter instances of feeling good and in control of your life. 

We become far more susceptible to infection when we are experiencing constant or prolonged stress. Cortisol is the main stress hormone; once the natural balance of this hormone is impacted it can suppress or at the very least impair the immune function. 

The good news is there is a lot you can do to support your immune function. As well as making lifestyle changes that can limit the amount of stress, we can look at natural remedies that are there to serve and protect when we utilize them! Oregano is one of these natural remedies! 


The Wonders of Oil of Wild Oregano 

Oil of oregano has been used to treat infections for centuries. It has strong antimicrobial properties that make this oil very effective against bacterial, viral, parasitic, and fungal infections. 

These properties are especially valuable now that there is a rise in antibiotic-resistant bacterial strains due to excessive and suboptimal use of antibiotics. Research studies have shown that oil of oregano is as effective as antibiotics in killing several strains of bacteria.



Most people use oregano oil for colds, flu, sore throats, coughs, sinus congestion, and bronchitis. However, there are so many other internal and external uses that most people, even those who use them, don’t realize! 

These include gastrointestinal problems such as bloating, diarrhea, heartburn, and foodborne illnesses (many of the things we may experience over the holiday season in fact!). Oil of oregano can also be helpful for soothing headaches, easing arthritis symptoms, skincare, and relieving muscle and joint pain. The list goes on; the potential benefits to the oil of oregano as a natural healer are extensive. 

Louianna has their very own Oil of Wild Oregano that is supremely sourced; this is alongside all of their other natural health and healing products that are proving ever valuable for wellbeing and remedy from a variety of illnesses and conditions. 


Here we find out a little more about Louianna and how they can help you! 

Louianna began as a love story, a tale of two teenagers (Luigi and Anna) and how they survived and prospered after the war in Europe through their passion and principles around olive farming. They grew as a family (and as olive farmers!) over many years and the results of their efforts are the company we know as Louianna! (The actual story is far lovelier than that brief description!). 

Louianna offer Organic Products that meet Stringent Quality Standards 

Organic certification is the public’s assurance that products have been grown and handled according to strict procedures without the use of pesticides and toxic chemicals.

Louianna takes the extra step, wherever possible, to obtain additional certifications, such as Protected Designation of Origin (PDO) from the European Union, to give the public added assurances.

“Our testing procedures are rigorous and uncompromising. We use only the top laboratory facilities in the world to conduct our tests. These labs are recognized by governmental organizations, such as Health Canada, Washington State Department of Agriculture, and Federazione Italiana Agricoltura Organica, just to name a few. Louianna will only provide the highest quality organic products to our customers. That is our promise to you”- Louianna


Louianna looks for organic farmers who work in harmony with nature with good soil building practices and protection of water resources. 

Great agricultural practices respect the balance demanded of a healthy ecosystem. Well-balanced soil grows strong healthy plants that taste great and organic farming helps keep rural communities healthy. Organic agriculture, by definition, requires extra care and diligence. Most organic farms are small in comparison to industrial agriculture that mass produce all the manufactured and modified foods that create many of the health issues that are prevalent in society today (obesity, diabetes, cancer, etc.).

Louianna Estates is located in a prime, hilly town of Montorio Nei Frentani, 654 meters above sea level in the province of Molise. Louianna’s mission is simple: to continue to search the world over for quality organic products that are flavorful and healthy for you, and deliver them to your kitchen table or medicine cabinet! 

Here are two of Louianna’s products: Louianna Certified Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil and Louianna Oil of Wild Oregano.
