With the change in the weather, it’s time to look after your immune system, as we seem to be more susceptible to colds and flu with the cooler temperatures. Naturopathic medicine can offer nutritional advice, as well as supplements and herbal medicines to support the immune system to prevent infection, as well as assist when you are feeling under the weather. There are also a multitude of things you can do to support your immune health and enjoy the winter months without battling the cough and sniffles.
