Book in with Roberta Muzzarellifrom Rainbow Naturals to help protect you and your family this winter
By Roberta Muzzarelli, Rainbow Naturals
Winter is here, carrying cooler days and the seasonal colds and flu.
It is common knowledge that following a healthy diet full of fruit and vegetables and a clean source of protein, can boost your immunity.
If, unfortunately though, you are feeling unwell, there are certain nutrients and herbs that can help you fight the infection and recover quickly, especially if used at the onset of the first symptoms.
One of the first herbs that comes to mind when immunity is involved is the well known Echinacea. Echinacea is a great immune tonic, immune enhancer, ant-inflammatory and a lymphatic herb and it can be used with any type of infection.
The power of Echinacea comes from the active ingredients called Alkalamydes. Not all the Echinacea plants have this specific active ingredient that is sensitive to the environment, and how and where they have been grown.
The herbal tinctures that I utilise in my herbal mixtures have been analysed for standardised active ingredients that can reproduce the results from the latest research.
The ‘Germ Fighter’ is a combination of herbs developed to target and fight any type of infection, either bacterial or viral, especially in the acute phases.
However, if your symptoms have been persistent for a while and you present other conditions, I would suggest you book an appointment for a private consultation, where I can target your specific needs and perhaps complement and reduce side effects of the medications that you are already taking.
Rainbow Naturals Clinic is open on Tuesdays at Rainbow Beach Community Centre, and you can also find me with natural health products at the Friday Community Catch Ups and Rainbow Beach Markets.
