Immune Boosting Tips

By Tamara Madden on 06 Mar 2021

Immune Boosting Tips:


Bone broths– this is simple, affordable and highly effective, there is a recipe on my website

Anti-microbial foods – Garlic, Onions, Oregano

Anti-oxidant foods– Lots of fresh fruits and vegetables, opt for a wide variety of colours

Sunshine /Sauna – viruses dislike heat, so sitting in direct sunlight or using a sauna regularly is ideal (I realise that the sun is not out much this week…and accessing sauna is not possible for all, but it’s worth looking for these opportunities when they arise)

Exercise – regular exercise is vital for stress management and mental health

Sleep - 8 hours per night, this is one of the most beneficial things you can do to support yourself


Super Mushroom Complex – my favourite for supporting neutrophils our strongest immune cell

Zinc– critical nutrient for building immune cells

Probiotics– most of the immune system resides in the gut

Vitamin’sC /D/ A

N-Acetyl Cysteine (NAC) – this is often used to treat respiratory issues as it helps to break down mucous

Magnesium– essential for energy, stress management, and to support quality sleep

15 Minute Immune Phone Consults Available With the Corona Virus situation escalating at an alarming rate, many of my clients have been asking what they can do to support their immune system – with food and supplements. Perhaps you are also looking to support your children or elderly loved ones. Below I have detailed my suggestions and tips, however choosing supplements to support you is very dependent on your current health status, dietary choices and medications you are taking. To support you, I will be offering 15 minute phone consultations to discuss immune support for those that would like a more personal service and to be able to access practitioner prescribed supplements – I will arrange for these to be ordered via an online portal, and delivered to your door. Please email me if you would like to book in for this service, and we can organise a time. The cost of this appointment will be $50.

Please get in touch via email if you would like personalised help for you or your family. Stay calm, safe and healthy.
