Winter Newsletter July 2017

Winter is definitely here, along with runny noses, sore throats and coughs. When the weather outside is rainy and cold it is important to keep warm. Our bodies naturally want a quieter pace in the winter months and a cold may be nature’s way of saying “slow down” It can also provide an opportunity to naturally detox as it is also a way our body gets rid of dead cells and an opportunity to recharge our immune system. So being sick isn’t all bad, and nurturing ourselves with natural remedies, immune boosting herbs and nourishing foods can recharge our immune system and help us to bounce back even healthier.
