SURVIVING THE WINTER LURGIES!
Is your immune system strong enough to fend off the bugs?
Are you sick of being sick?
Disease causing viruses or bacteria can enter your body simply by breathing or eating!
Fortunately, only a few of these, particularly viral, ‘pathogens’ result in a cold or flu because you are equipped with an immune system specifically designed to fight off unwanted invaders.
Are you one of the many people, for whom a string of colds and flu is a way of life in winter?
Perhaps getting rid of the seemingly endless sniffles, sneezing and sore throats seems like an unachievable ideal. Fortunately, it is possible to improve your immune system function and reduce the frequency and severity of those nasty winter lurgies with a bit of awareness and some simple strategies.
Prevention beats cure every time.
Start addressing your immune system now by digging deeper to strengthen your response.
Avoid sick days and have an awesome NATURAL MEDICINE FIRST AID KIT on hand.
If you are stressed out, your GUT MICROBIOME may well be the cause…unfit, run down and/or consuming a nutritionally poor diet, you are likely contributing to the demise of your immune system’s defences and setting yourself up to succumb to one of the many viruses floating around.
Therefore, preparing your immune system to withstand this winter’s lurgies begins with a few simple foundational strategies:
• Address your underlying PERCEPTION OF THE STRESS around you – being stressed reduces immune system function, so make sure you incorporate regular time-out, meditation and/or ‘green’ time, such as walking outdoors or playing with pets. Michelle is an Internationally Recognized PSYCH-K (R) Facilitator and LOVES the strength and freedom this beautiful process allows.
• Enjoy regular exercise – remaining active reduces the risk of contracting a cold by up to 46%
• Sleep – aim for 7 to 8 hours each night to restore energy and increase resilience
• Eat your vegies (and fruits!) – at least three to five cups of fresh vegetables and/or salad, plus two serves of fresh fruit every day! Unless you have SIBO of course…
Fill your plate with a rainbow of colour to ensure an abundance of essential nutrients and antioxidants that will help support healthy immune system cells.
• Regularly wash your hands – simple soap and warm water helps reduce cross-contamination with unwell people.
The new Kangen water devices not only provides EXCELLENT alkalising and HYDRATING water, it has many different levels of pH to select from. The 2.5 pH is specifically used for hand washing to remove bugs and clean hands. Read more here : https://michellecronenaturopath.com.au/kangen-water/
Nevertheless, although being prepared is the best strategy – realistically it may be difficult to achieve everything you are ‘meant’ to do, which is where Michelle can help.

Marvellous medicinal mushrooms
If you are one of those people that experiences recurrent infections then your immune system could benefit from some more specific additional support. The advantage of natural medicine is that it is not just to treat illness,
but improve your own natural immune defences.
For example, the immune-boosting medicinal mushrooms include cordyceps, coriolus, shiitake and reishi – four, not only traditionally
used, but widely-studied and clinically proven mushrooms available.
Individually, each species of mushroom has demonstrated remarkable effectiveness in immune enhancement, to help resolve chronic, and/or recurrent infectious conditions. What’s more, this combination of mushrooms provides symptomatic relief of upper respiratory tract infections, including reducing mucus congestion. But that’s not all…
YOUR GUT HEALTH PROFOUNDLY INFLUENCES YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM…
Approximately 70% of your immune system is located in your digestive system? This emphasizes how important it is to also look after your gut health. Many people are aware that certain probiotics can support digestion, but did you know there are specific probiotics that support a healthy immune system? There are several beneficial strains, to help enhance immune system function, making assessment of your health a valuable aid to winter wellness.
As a healthy immune system is supported by the right microbial balance in your gut, speak to your Michelle about which probiotic combination is the most appropriate, to help overcome your immune system concerns.
