Immunity building

Hey guys! Back again after a very slow few days. Never have I ever endured the cruel affects of food poisoning.. until now. 🤢🤮🤢🤮🤢🤮🤢 Something I would NOT wish upon my worst enemy!

I’ll spare you the details but let me just say, I WILL NEVER eat take away red meat again! 12 hours of – what can only be described as similar to labour pains! – and 3 days of bed rest, I was an absolute mess! Not. Fun.

Today is the first day I’m feeling well again (5 days later). Energy levels are back to normal and I’m back eating my usual diet – plus a whole bunch of extra’s to build up my immunity again. Most of you probably don’t know, but I’m a Health Coach. I did my Diploma through The Institute of Integrative Nutrition back in 2018. I loved every minute of it but decided not to take the Health Coach route. After practicing for a few months with a handful of clients I discovered that I didn’t quite have enough patience for most people. Lol.

So what am I doing at this time to build my immunity again??? In my opinion all health is directly linked to gut health. Our digestive system and it’s function has a massive impact on our mind, body and spirit. And after experiencing such a bad reaction to whatever it was that I ate, it’s safe to say my gut health is in a TERRIBLE condition at the moment – definitely not great timing considering all this COVID-19 virus spreading like wild fire lately! Now is the time to be concentrating on eating healthy, overdosing our bodies with vitamins and minerals to prep us for Winter and this nasty virus!

First step – take a high quality probiotic to re-balance the good bacteria in my gut. Second step – have a daily dose of high quality Vitamin C. Thirdly – eat as many fresh organic fruits and viggies a day as possible.

You might see from the above that it’s a pretty simple list of things to focus on. I like to keep it SIMPLE. I think people over-complicate being healthy WAY too much these days…. all these bloody diets do my head in (and yes I did try half a dozen different ones during my course).

You also might notice that my 3 simple steps above are not restricting me in anyway but instead focus on what I CAN have and not what I CAN’T have. I’ve noticed that when you tell people they can’t have something, then that’s all they want to have. And I’m exactly the same. So if I want to eat that chocolate biscuit then I will. But I’ll just have 1 and NOT 2!

So that’s a wrap for today’s blog post. My next one will include some creative endevours I’ve been working on. If you have any questions feel free to comment below!

Stay safe beautiful people!
