What are your triggers for seasonal illness? How can we reduce them now?

Hello and how are you? This is strange for us today as we are usually at Eumundi markets  for our free community clinic and having coffee by now! As you have possibly heard the markets are closed for now until further notice. 

We are operating in a new way and you can call us 0409765033 or email us wellness@medicineroom.net and we will help you with our free community clinics as always ( just not face to face at the moment) 

Jasmine from mums garden

Heres a pic of some Jasmine from my mums garden a few weeks ago. Its so pretty and aromatic. However some people get sick when they smell these powerful plants. Allergies and illnesses that you have are often triggered by the environment. So be extra careful now to stay away from triggers. Luckily this one doesn't effect me. I love jasmine so much for its relaxing, purifying and beauty. 

This is a topic I have been thinking about a lot this week as many of our patients have not just one concern with COVID19 effecting your body, but many concerns. What about the current illnesses you have now?  What are your allergens and triggers for illness? How can we help you get on top of that more and have less risk factors for the viruses, flus, and winter illnesses that are coming our way this year? 

What if you already have a cough, cold or upper respiratory illness? Then I would advise treating it as much as you can now and reducing the illness so that you are stronger and more able to cope with oncoming illness if that happens.

Drink lots of herbal teas, take some cough, cold and flu relief herbals, We have our blend with andrographis which is one of my favourite lung herbs, it helps reduce the infections in your lungs and also goes to work in the liver eliminating excess microbial load, effectively clearing our your system. We have thyme in there for lung health, echinacea to protect and enhance your immunity, liquorice root to soothe and clear illnesses and energise your body while working hard to balance your adrenal energy plus nettle which is the herb for oxygenation, lung strengthening and reduces illness in the body whilst strengthening. 

Drinking chamomile tea is good for reducing coughs and excellent for the lungs too. So is Olive leaf and stopping the nasal and throat mucous drips with herbs like fenugreek and elderberry. For sensitive peole , especially children and the elderly taking chamomile extract is very effective to protect the lungs and reduce coughing. 

If you suffer from asthma now is the time to take essential fatty acids and stay in clear environments where you are not triggered by factors that could bring on the asthma. Stick with your current plan of clean fresh air and non contaminated and synthetic exposures. Add some Olive leaf for antimicrobial action and nettle for extra oxygenation  to your herbal regime and keep those lungs as healthy as possible. On that note do this if you are prone to allergies of the respiratory system. 

I have lots of patients who have Lymes disease, ross river fever, epstein barr virus and other conditions such as auto immune diseases, chronic fatigue syndrome, arthritis, lupus, inflammatory conditions, debilitated health and people recovering from cancer, acute conditions and other symptoms where you feel less than 100% now.  I think taking extra doses of adrenal repairing formulas and strengthening your system as much as possible so that you have more resilience is the best solution. Rehmannia, ginseng, adaptogenic herbs, skitake mushroom, and gotu kola can all help you now. 

 I highly recommend staying as close to your best health as possible and this involves eating well, resting, getting exercise, applying all the recommended hygiene and social distancing as possible and staying in connection and communication with your loved ones. We are all challenged at the moment and its great if we can relax a bit, stay clam and not get stressed over what might happen! 

If you are on a herbal blend now for your health please talk with me as we will need to review it and we will reformulate to give you an extra coat of armour and some extra protection over this coming winter flu season. Its only March now, but I like to work ahead and if the statistics are right and if we are going into this pandemic the way the research is showing, then I want to help you with herbs if I can. 

We are offering 100% free online and phone consults now. These are for the same time you would normally spend with me in the markets, 10 to 15 minutes and we will formulate your herbal blends to meet the times. 

Also we are offsetting costs on all postal orders. To help you through these times and in appreciation of your support in our free community clinic and herbal dispensary.
