It’s that time of the year when it’s getting darker earlier, the weather has got colder and you may be feeling under the weather needing a pick me up to boost your immune system. Here are some of my top tips…

 

  • Keeping hydrated with good quality filtered water. There is a water jug filter/dispenser called Zerowater now available in the UK with an aim to deliver the best filtration possible with their premium five-stage ion exchange technology, this filter removes virtually all total dissolved solids (TDS), a claim which no other filter jug or dispenser can put their name to.  You can get 10% discount and free shipping in the UK off the jug filters, dispenser and additional filters using code: vital2710. CLICK HERE for more details and to order.

  • If you want to use a water filter bottle on the move then the Black + Blum Eau Good Duo comes with an activated stick of Japanese Binchotan charcoal in the bottle, it softens water, adds good minerals such as calcium, removes contaminants, balances PH and absorbs unwanted tastes and odours, such as chlorine. You can just use the bottle to have your favourite fresh fruits and herbs as it has a built-in infuser cap, although you have to remove the charcoal first. CLICK HERE for more details.

Broccoli Sprout Juice is a good source of nutrients including minerals and vitamins and enzymes, to help the body break down fats and proteins. Vegus Foods is the only producer of broccoli sprout juice in the world and it is raw and cold pressed. It contains Sulforaphane which has many health properties including anticancer,  anti-inflammatory, anti-aging, neuroprotective, antioxidant, antimicrobial and anti-diabetic. Some of the research topics from studies: Cancer & Carcinogens – Intestinal Health – Autism – Alzheimer’s Disease – Parkinson’s Disease – Skin Disorders – Aging – Eyes – Air Pollution – Diseases caused by Protein Misfolding. You can search more online. You can also buy Broccoli Sprout Juice  & Beetroot Juice and Wheatgrass Juice from them. Receive £10 off your first order on 4-weekly recurring orders (which you can cancel at anytime immediately after first payment has been taken).

At the moment they are also giving away a limited supply of free pocket (portable), solar powered SAD light with every 4-week order of any Vegus Juices.  The SAD light is very effective because it uses new technology and so you only need 2-4 minutes a day – MORE DETAILS

 

  • Include some exercise you enjoy such as walking, rebounding, swimming etc. Also ones to reduce stress and promote relaxation such as YogaQi Gong or Tai Chi are beneficial. Yoga Nidra practice, meditation and massage is also conducive to relaxation and rejuvenation.

  • Eat foods that are easy on the digestion and include hydrating foods such as whole grains; brown rice (or a good quality white rice if you can’t digest the fibre in brown rice easily), millet, quinoa, buckwheat, vegetable proteins such as beans, lentils, pulses and include protein such as soft boiled eggs, fresh fish & small amounts of grass fed meat or organic poultry if you aren’t vegetarian or vegan, lots of vegetables including green leafy vegetables & sea vegetables.

  • The DHA & EPA found in Omega-3 supplements can vastly improve your health and immune system. I recommend Wiley’s Finest Omega-3 Fish Oil, which is made from sustainable Wild Alaskan Pollock. Wiley’s supplements are available in capsule-form or in a liquid. The newest product from the Wiley’s range is Vitamin K2 MenaQ7 (MK-7), which contains 100% of your daily recommended Vitamin D. This is great for supporting heart and bone health, as well as helping your immune system during the cold winter months. CLICK HERE to order and read more about the Wiley’s range.  You can also buy vegan EPA/DHA supplements by brands such as Viridian and Cyptoplan, which are available in the UK at Natural Dispensary – see details below.

  • The herb Astragalus is noted for being effective for the immune system, however, it has many other beneficial properties such as strengthening the body, increasing energy, improving adrenal fatigue leading to fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue. Available at Natural Dispensary and can be bought in powder, liquid and tablet form. Type Astragalus in the search bar to find different brands.

  • Apimist Xtra Pollen contains a synergy of raw honey, pollen and Royal Jelly. This honey helps to boost your immune system, increase energy and improve your general health due to a significant amount of nutrients naturally contained in it – CLICK HERE for more details of this product and others. If you mention Julie Silver you will receive a 5% discount. Speak to Ali or Kelly on 01263 761525.
  • If you have a cough, cold, sore/dry throat or just wanting a natural sweet/lozenge to help boost the immune system then suck on a Comvita Manuka Honey Lozenge to give you relief. There are different varieties such as Lemon & Ginger flavour, Menthol & Blackcurrant and Peppermint & Menthol. They contain natural ingredients without added sugar. CLICK HERE for more details. They are also available from Natural Dispensary – see details below.

  • Gynostemma, also called Jiaogulan, is an adaptogenic herb and potent health tonic which is taken as a herbal tea. It helps bring the whole body back into balance and increases strength and stamina protecting the body and mind from mental & physical stress. It has many other health properties which you can look up or email me – julie@juliesilver.co.uk and I will email you the details. The best price for an organic and quality brand I have found in the UK is from Na’vi Organics. It is available in loose tea form and capsules. Type Gynostemma in the search bar or look under tonic herbs – CLICK HERE for more details and to order.

  • Some mushrooms such as Reishi, Maitake & Shiitake are known to be medicinal and boost the immune system. Pukka have a product called Mushroom Gold.  Available at Natural Dispensary – see details below.

  • Nano Mineral Waters are very beneficial as they get instantly absorbed in the body. Zinc or Zinc/Copper are vital for boosting immunity. Gold has powerful healing potential. There has been research to say it could greatly improve brain and nervous system functioning to reduce the symptoms depression, anxiety, Parkinson’s disease, Alzhiemer’s disease and other degenerative brain diseases. Also fight several addictions such as sugar. Platinum has a regenerative effect on the heart tissue, the thymus (which plays an important role in the immune system) and the entire hormone system. Magnesium* is one of the six essential macro-minerals necessary for increasing energy, improving sleep, strengthen bones, remineralise teeth, improve hydration, helps prevent strokes, heart disease, relieve any aches and pains, diabetes etc. You can buy these the UK from Noble Naturals. To order and for more details contact Abigail on 01342 457170 or email: support@noblenaturals.co.uk and mention you read the details on this blog as they only usually deal with practitioners.

*Magnesium can be taken in various forms other than the nano water and I also recommend rubbing BetterYou Magnesium Oil into the body, or having a bath/foot soak with the Magnesium Flakes or Oil.

You can buy many of the natural health supplements mentioned from Natural Dispensary – www.naturaldispensary.co.uk  Complete the online registration form, putting Julie Silver in the box which asks for the name of the Practitioner who referred you.
