Immune System Health

Immunity is your body’s ability to defend itself against attack from foreign invaders. It involves a whole network of cells, tissues and organs working together to fight infection.

Supporting the immune system is critical to good health. If your body’s immunity is compromised – through poor diet, long periods of stress or digestive problems – you will find yourself prone to frequent infections, coughs and colds.
Around 80% of your immune system is located in your gut and you need lots of beneficial bacteria to protect against potential nasty bugs looking to make an assault on your system.

Nutritional Therapy is one of the ways you can re-build your defences by ensuring that your body is receiving the essential nutrients and anti-oxidants required to help combat infection. A combined approach of diet, lifestyle, stress management and exercise can all help to support your immune system.

How a Nutritionist Can Help With Your Immune System Health

By working with a Registered Nutritional Therapist in Berkshire, this will help you to get to the bottom of why you are susceptible to illnesses, frequent colds and infections. You will learn that quite often gut problems (constipation, diarrhoea, wind) may be at the root cause for your low immunity. So, not only will you be able to improve your overall immunity and restore your energy levels, other areas of your health could also benefit that you thought were completely unrelated!
