Segregation and prevention are one way of dealing with the current covid19 outbreak.

Peri-Menopause is a time when our immune systems are in need of some extra support. Fluctuating hormones mean our body is constantly changing so our immune function might not be as stable as it usually is.
Disrupted sleep patterns, increased anxiety and stress all deplete our immune systems and these are also common symptoms of peri-menopause.
What can you do yourself to strengthen your immune system now?
LOVE YOUR GUT
80% of our immune function is based in our gut. Digestion is often upset in peri-menopause due to excess hormones having to be processed.
Introduce fermented foods to help with digestion and consider probiotics if you have a history of gut problems or have taken antibiotics.
Homeopathy will also be able to help rebuild your gut health using constitutional remedies and specific remedies which support and rebalance the gut.
CLEAN UP YOUR DIET
Now is a good time to clean up your diet, remove things that may weaken your digestion and liver. Wheat, sugar and processed foods are often culprits. Alcohol and sugar also suppress the immune system and overload the liver.
Eat a rainbow of vegetables. Variety is key.
