Start Building Your Immune System Today!
A strong immune system is at the root of our health.
Build your immune system by:
Eating lots of fruits and vegetables. They provide the body with the phytonutrients, vitamins, and minerals we need to support our immune system.
Reducing processed foods. Processed foods are full of additives and preservatives that can lead to inflammation in the body. They also often contain unhealthy fats that increase our Omega 6 Fatty Acids, and that increase acidity in the body.
Eliminating refined sugars. Sugar is addictive. The more we eat it, the more we want it. And, sugar is highly inflammatory which compromises our immunity.
Eating healthy fats. Things like extra virgin olive oil, avocados, and nuts and seeds provide us with a boost to our brain and our immune system by fighting inflammation.
Reducing your stress. When our cortisol levels are up our immune system is down. The brain naturally reduces its processes to certain systems in the body (like the immune) when it thinks we need to protect ourselves from a threat. Crazy, right?!
Getting plenty of sleep. When we are exhausted our immune system can’t keep up and there is a greater chance of getting sick.
Exercising regularly. Exercise is good for your stress level, good for your heart health, and moderate exercise can help support the immune system by fighting inflammation.
Drinking lots of water. Hydration is key and sugary drinks won’t cut it. Water supports our brain. Dehydration can cause headaches, limit your physical performance, impact your focus and mood, impede digestion, and impact heart and kidney function. This can increase your susceptibility to illness.
Hi, I’m Kathryn
As a cancer survivor, I am deeply passionate about health and wellness. Prior to cancer I thought I was eating healthy; little did I know that I had so much more to learn. After completing treatment and getting my health back I dug deep into the roots of colon cancer to learn more about how to prevent it and how to live healthier. The successful completion of a culinary nutrition course led me to launch my own business running workshops and personalized nutrition planning for people wanting to change their own lives and prevent disease. The next step in my personal road to health and healing was to become a 200 hour registered yoga teacher. I love leading gentle yoga classes and guided meditations to help people move through their own health and healing process. I want to share my success story and my passion with you through wellness education. As a former teacher turned culinary nutrition educator and yoga instructor, my objective is to have people eat whole foods, get cooking, get moving, and get healthy.
