Three Seasonal Tips to Stay Healthy!

1 2 3

Winter can be a harsh time for the body, mind, and spirit. With so many cold bugs and viruses around, it will serve you well to look after your immune function as the cold season sets in. 



The body works best when it is in balance. During weather extremes, your body is likely to need a helping hand to stay well. This is especially true if you suffer from any type of respiratory disorder, seasonal allergies, or just generally have a low immune function. For instance, it’s not uncommon for Asthma sufferers to need more puffs of their inhalers through winter, even more so if they become unwell and develop a cold bug or virus. 

So, here are 3 seasonal tips to stay well! 

  1. Book in for a health check. Sometimes a quick little review of your health can help establish what is going well and what isn’t. Many fitness facilities, gyms, or pharmacies may provide certain aspects of this service- such as a basic blood pressure check and body mass index calculation. It’s only a small part of the picture but the smaller pieces create the whole don’t they?! Ideally, a visit to a health professional every 6-12 months can prevent ill health. It can also be useful to talk through with a health professional if you have any concerns or are currently living with an existing condition or lowered immunity. 

  2. Keep your nutrition on track. This means eating more of what keeps you well. Fresh fruit and veg as much as possible, staying hydrated (something that we often let slip during winter), and eating a wide variety of foods in general. Certain vitamins, minerals, and proteins are naturally produced by the body but in some cases, may decline through age and deconditioning. For instance, collagen levels drop significantly with age. 

  3. Keep your supplements at hand. Supplements offer your body that extra support where it is needed. Vitamin C is one of the primary vitamins we need for a solid immune function, and it is not naturally produced by the body. It is a water-soluble vitamin that you need a daily supply of. And numerous vitamins and minerals also help to boost the effect Vitamin C has on the body and vice versa. As with all things, shop around for your supplements, look at functionality: is it bioavailable? Easily absorbed? Does it come in different forms- capsule, powder, or liquid? There are many variables!

Here are some of its best qualities: 

  • Some MSM studies have shown that it helps with nutrient uptake

  • MSM is an organic sulfur compound that is found in all body cells that are indispensable for life.

  • In its role in the body's sulfur cycle, it helps to create the chemical links needed to form and maintain numerous different types of structural tissues of the human body, including connective tissues, such as articular cartilage and skin. 

  • MSM also has shown many benefits to help arthritis, swelling, and reducing soreness after exercise.
