Supporting Immunity - Winter Wellness ONLINE

Supporting Immunity (or staying well) is perhaps more important this winter than in previous years? While we can’t always prevent illness, we can try to increase our resistance to illness, to get over illnesses more quickly. 

This talk will be a very simple outline of the immune system and what can ‘wear it down’. What things in our diet and lifestyle can create issues that impact our immunity? We will address these dietary and lifestyle measures and get suggestions and solutions to make the, often small, changes needed to better support our immunity.

We will look at the best foods to support immunity, and have some recipes and suggestions for their inclusion into your diet. As well, we will look at some nutrients and herbal medicines that you may have questions about?  

This free talk, on Saturday the 30th May at 10am, will go for around 1 to 1.5 hours and it would be great to see you there!

**This class will be delivered online in Term 2, using the Zoom video platform. To take part, you will need to download and install Zoom from the internet, and set up a free ‘basic’ account. NSCC uses platforms that we trust, but we encourage you to be aware of computer safety and protect your personal information when using the internet.
