Keeping Your Immune System Strong and The Coronavirus

    With all of the media attention on the latest virus outbreak that causes severe respiratory illness it is no wonder Canadians are searching for ways to keep their immune system boosted. First of all don't panic. Often the media wants to create mass hysteria all the while playing up the statistics to create an anxious buzz. Many people are already suffering with typical winter infections such as colds, sinus infections and coughs. Here are five simple tips to keep your immunity humming and respiratory illnesses at bay. 

     1. Avoid sugar and sweets. Sugar (cane, beet, succanat, turbinado, honey, agave, maple syrup) and refined carbohydrates (such as white flour, white rice) help viruses to take off in the body because microbes grow when they are fed simple sugars. This creates a toll on the immune system. If one eats too many sweets it also causes an imbalance in our natural flora found in our sinuses, lungs, gastrointestinal (GI) and urogental tracts. When our flora is imbalanced, it impedes our immune system because our GI tract holds three quarters of our lymphatic system, which is our main immune defence. You may notice that children that go to birthday parties or sleepovers and eat a lot of candy come home sick from eating sweets to their heart's content and lack of sleep.

     2. Consider using these particular probiotic strains, which target  respiratory viruses, called lactobacillus paracasei 8700 2 and lactobacillus planatarium HEAL 9, found in Ultra Flora Cold Control. Consumption of these probiotics decrease one's susceptibility to cold by 67% and reduced illness time by almost 25%

     3. Be sure to correct any nutritional deficiencies in zinc, vitamin D3 and vitamin C. These vitamins are excellent immune boosters. A typical dose of zinc is 15 mgs once or twice daily with meals. For vitamin D3, take 1000 up to 5000IU per day with a meal that contains fat to aid in absorption. Vitamin C dosage runs from 1000mgs to 5000mgs per day in divided doses. If you get loose stools cut the dose back as needed. 

     4. Get proper sleep. When people are run down physically and emotionally due to stress and/or a lack of sleep, they are more susceptible to respiratory viruses. Some believe there are emotional triggers to health concerns and having cough or laryngitis is linked to stress where someone is unable to speak their truth. Be sure you make changes to your lifestyle that help you to minimize stress.

     If that doesn't help your sleep, try some natural sleeping aids. Some herbs such as oatstraw, passionflower, valerian, chamomile or hops can be quite helpful. They are often found in over the counter sleepy time teas and don't have the list of dangerous side effects that prescription sedatives do. Calcium and magnesium are also beneficial for a relaxing sleep. Take these products an hour before going to bed. 

     5. Herbs such as astragalus, cat's claw, black cumin sap, echinacea and mushrooms such as chaga, cordeceps, reishi and shitake all boost immunity.Try making a hot wild mushroom soup!

     6. In office we use homeopathic blends such as:

  • For immune boosting Caruso Lymph and Immune Lymph daily and thymuline once per week.
  • For flu symptoms, InfluMed.
  • For coughs and lung support, Caruso Pulmo
  • For sinus congestion, Caruso Sinus

     Homeopaths have been discussing the COVID-19 and what remedies best address the symptoms of it. These have been the top ones discussed arsenicum album, justicia and gelsemium. Remedies are best matched to ones symptoms.Everyone is different and not one size fits all.

For all other issues, I recommend a tune up. If you would like more information on how we can help you, please contact us for a free get acquainted chat today.

     Many of you may know that I am a holistic healer, nutritionist and homeopath first and foremost. However, I am an artist as well. I have a degree in Art and Art History, Fine art and Studio Design in addition to my Degree in Science, Nutrition and Homeopathy.

     Art has been a great source of stress relief for me in remarkable ways. After I lost my funny old Father to long battle with cancer I was struggling with my heavy heart. However, I rediscovered art and found that art was greatly soothing to me.

    I am enrolled in an Advanced Course in Art Therapy at VATI, Vancouver Art Therapy Institute and am learning how to help people express themselves creatively. Art therapy according to CATA, the Canadian Art Therapy Association, "Art therapy engages all the senses to relax the nervous system. Art making causes a shift from sympathetic to parasympathetic nervous system, which results in improved self-regulation, anxiety reduction, feeling more in control 1, improved executive functioning 2, and acceptance and integration within the whole self"

    Art therapy can be a great tool to help those who suffer from issues such as: 

  • Mental health issues (depression, anxiety, stress)
  • Grief and Bereavement
  • Trauma and shock
  • Aging geriatric issues
  • Stress and coping with illness diagnosis
  • Substance abuse
  • Physical health constraints, disabilities
  • Childhood trauma, autism, asperger's ADHD

     As an art therapy intern, I have many practical hours to gain in order to receive accreditation. My internship supervised by a registered art therapist. I am volunteering in a few long term care facilities but as well  I am offering a few one on one art therapy session to a few of my clients. A typical session runs from 60 to 90 minutes. This service would only require a small fee for materials and no cost for my time. If you would like to participate in one on one art therapy, please message me for details
