More information on how to prepare and boost your immune system? Check out 'BOOSTING YOUR IMMUNITY' underneath.
Boost your Immunity It may sound obvious but fresh vegetables and fruit are going to provide important vitamins and minerals such as Vitamin C, A, B, zinc and selenium. Apart from increasing your antioxidant levels from berries and dark green leafy veg , other foods include cacao, citrus fruits and also dried fruits such as prunes, and apricots. The easiest thing to remember is to 'eat a rainbow' and add as many colours as you can to up your daily intake. Look after the health of your gut. PREbiotic fibre foods such as onions, garlic, leeks and artichokes can help to feed PRObiotics in our gut. Probiotic foods include kefir, sauerkraut, live yoghurt and fermented soy such as tofu and tempeh. Taking a good quality probiotic may also help. Supporting sufficient numbers of probiotics is vital for our immunity because it is thought at least 70% of our immune response relies on good gut health. Stay hydrated. Again seemingly simple but many of us forget to drink at least 8 glasses of water a day. According to recent research, warm water has been recommended as if we do contract the virus, flushing it out from our throat may render the virus inactive as it's destroyed by the acid in the stomach. Also we can supplement water with herbal teas and there are so many to choose from. Using up our spices is a good idea. Turmeric and ginger not only have anti-inflammatory properties but immune enhancing compounds too. Get out in the sun. Being outside can help to improve our vitamin D levels. Adequate levels of vitamin D are very important for optimum immunity. There are beautiful walks around Sidmouth, Exeter and Devon. Reduce stress and anxiety. There are lots of ways like exercising, keeping in contact with others (by phone, Zoom, Skype), meditating and doing things you enjoy. Take time out for yourself whatever your circumstances. Even 5 minutes will help and the more regular the better! Getting enough sleep is paramount as lack of sleep has been shown to negatively affect the immune system.

Some people ask about dietician advice. Nutritionists are trained differently to dieticians but there are some similarities.
Registered Nutritional Therapists use a wide range of tools to assess and identify potential nutritional imbalances and help us to understand how these may contribute to an individual’s symptoms and health issues, giving you the tools to help yourself.
Reiki, Animal Reiki and Distance Reiki
The best thing about offering distance Reiki to animals as well as for people, is it can be given anywhere and at any time. Reiki is a beautifully non invasive and pampering therapy which leaves the receiver feeling peaceful, relaxed and nurtured.
Animal Reiki is just wonderful for all types of animals and in pretty much most scenarios. It can be used to calm and encourage physical, emotional and mental healing. Animals know instinctively what they want, when they need it, and how long for.
People and Animal Reiki when done face to face has the same amazing effects as when done over a distance.
Although Topsham, Exeter and Sidmouth are my local areas I am based in the South West and also make visits further afield, depending on which animals need treating.
