Lifestyle factors to consider- for immunity & wellbeing

  • Sleep. It is important to get at least 8 hours sleep a night, and if possible an hour’s nap during the day. Less than this will lead to oxidative stress (not good).
  • Reduce or stop smoking, or at least stop smoking tailor made cigarettes. Roll your own if you’re continuing to smoke, and look for organic or at least ‘chemical-free’ tobacco.
  • Reduce your intake of alcohol. Choose sulphur-free alcohol where you can.
  • Get adequate rest (apart from sleep), fresh air and exercise.
  • Reduce stressful relationships and situations, and deal with underlying emotional issues. This is so, so important.
  • Avoid drinking tap water.
  • Avoid produce grown with chemicals such as pesticides, fertilisers, fungicides and herbicides. Buy organic where you can. 
  • Avoid processed foods.
  • Whatever brings you joy – do that more often.
