Winter & Health Maintenance


Winter is here and flu season is upon us! 

We share our top 5 tips on how to support your bodies natural defence against sickness.


Incorporating metabolic strategies and specific whole food choices can support you immensely. Aa always we bring it back to whole food and nutrient density.  When prioritising the strengthening of our immune system, we mustn't underestimate the significance of micronutrients.


Essential vitamins such as A, C, D, E, B vitamins, along with minerals like selenium, and zinc, are integral in improving immune function.

Fever, mucus, and coughing are natural processes through which the body eliminates toxins. These symptoms indicate that the body is actively purifying itself. It is best not to suppress them with medication as it may provide temporary relief but lead to long-term damage. By doing so, you may experience more severe illness in the future. For the body to perform its functions effectively, it requires energy derived from carbohydrates, protein, minerals, trace minerals, and all the essential nutrients.


Here are our top 5 tips for supporting your body this Winter

Bone Broth

Bone broth is an incredibly nutritious drink that can be helpful during the cooler months. Rich in collagen, amino acids, and minerals, bone broth helps support gut health, strengthen the immune system, and promote joint health. 


A potent immune booster. Garlic contains sulphur compounds that have antimicrobial and antiviral properties, helping to protect against infections. Our favourite way to incorporate garlic is to place cut up garlic into some raw honey and let it sit for two weeks. Then simply have a spoonful daily, alternatively you can slice up some raw garlic and swallow like a pill.

Beef Liver

The most nutrient dense food on the planet. Beef liver is known as natures multivitamin and contains more vitamin and minerals then any other food on the planet. The Vitamin A levels in beef liver alone are incredible at supporting immune function as it provides barriers preventing pathogen entry. Just some of the nutrients include, Choline, Chromium, Copper, Folate, Iron, Magnesium, Niacin, Potassium, Riboflavin, Selenium, Vitamin A, Vitamin b12, B6, Vitamin D, Vitamin E, Vitamin K & Zinc. 

Oregano Oil

Oregano oil is a potent natural remedy known for its antimicrobial properties. It contains compounds such as carvacrol and thymol, which can help combat respiratory infections and support overall immune function. We like to consume oregano oil orally in small doses to help fight off bacteria. Try & look for wild oregano for its more potent benefits. 


Vitamin D from whole food sources or the sun is a crucial element in supporting the body during the winter months. Vitamin D helps in the regulation of our immune responses and also supports the production of antimicrobial peptides. Get your vitamin D from sunlight, liver, cod liver oil & sardines.

These are a few fundamental pillars from whole food derived sources that we love to incorporate into our everyday.


Remember, hydration, regular balanced exercise, managing stress levels, and prioritising sleep are crucial fundamentals for supporting your body. By adopting these metabolic strategies and incorporating the above whole food ingredients into your winter routine, you can bring support to the body and thrive in the cooler month.
