It's that time of the year when our immune system might take a bit of a hit. Although its important to support your immune system all year long, I wanted to share some quick tips to get you through the winter months!
Let's break it down first.
What exactly causes stress to our immune system? Well its not just cold and flues but also sugar, food sensitivities, allergies, smoking, alcohol, molds and fungus.
And how do we know if our immune system is stressed? You may experience allergies, fatigue, eczema, reoccurring infections, digestive issues like dysbiosis, etc.
