Happy Holidays girl!!
Hope you had a fun time celebrating with family & friends! But now that all the fun is over, it's time get your health & wellness back on track.
If you know me, you know I'm all about celebrating, enjoying my glass of wine but also at the same looking after myself. I'm not interested in looking younger; I want to look healthy, radiant & sassy and what better way to do that than boosting your natural immune system?!
There are so many reasons to take care of yourself not only TODAY but moving forward. From the covid stress to winter season, your body is prone to sickness & you should do everything to boost your immunity & stay healthy.
Here's a few ways to get started -
Eat the rainbow
Make sure you are filling up on colorful produce! Whether it’s fresh or frozen, fruits and veggies are the most important tool for our health.
In addition to eating fermented foods like sauerkraut and kimchi, adding a probiotic supplement to your morning routine will increase your digestive health and boost your imjunity. The good bacteria wil help keep your gut in tip-top shape all winter. It is said “immunity begins in the gut.”
Vitamin D is equally important for a healthy functioning immune system! The best way to get vitamin D is through daily sun exposure... that can be a challenge during the cloudy winter months. This is why I like to supplement with a vitamin D3 liquid - which is most easily absorbed into the body.
Essential Oils / Aromatherapy
Essential oils are all the rage! Use them in a diffuser to clean the air and inhale them to help clear your nasal passages to breathe better. They will also help you to destress and get a good night’s rest. Lemon, lavender, peppermint, eucalyptus, rosemary, cinnamon and tea tree are my favorites in the winter.
