Health Tips: Lymphatic System
Many of us have indulged over the winter months with comfort foods and little exercise. It is feeling like Spring is here with warmer temperatures and warmer days.
Now is the time to holistically detox and rejuvenate your mind, body and spirit!
Spring is a time where many take stock of their lives, relationships both at work and home and make changes. Maybe what you are doing is not working for you anymore and you need a change of pace. This can be nervous and exciting at the same time. Taking little steps or big steps - do what suits you best. Feel the fear and do it anyway! Change is in the air!

A healthy gut is similar to a healthy vege garden. What you put in is what you will reap. Prepare the gut with prebiotics (healthy soil fertiliser and compost) and then you sow your (vege) seeds or Probiotics.
Prebiotics come from specific plants to nourish and feed your good gut bacteria and encourage its growth and population. Recent studies have also shown a direct link between your gut and mental health. Eating prebiotics on a daily basis may lessen anxiety, depression, and stress.
Healthy gut flora becomes crucial for a natural immune defense system and eliminating parasites. Probiotic Yoghurt made with dairy may create more mucus in the body and can be high in sugar. I suggest either Probiotic capsules or Fermented foods like Sauerkraut, Kimchi, Kombucha, Kefir, Pickled veges.
Other nutrients like Zinc (almonds, pumpkin and sunflower seeds; sardines, shrimps and oysters) Vitamin C (kiwifruit, feejoa's, citrus and leafy green veges) and D (sunshine, fish, mushrooms and eggs) are great immunity boosters as well. Specific Nutrition advice can assist you here.
