Are you sick and tired of getting sick all the time?

When seasons change, it is not uncommon for some people to be hit once or twice with a viral or bacterial infection like the cold or flu.

However, when feeling under the weather becomes a frequent occurrence (ie. monthly), or it takes you a prolonged length of time to recover (more than 5-7 days), it may be a sign that the your immune system (your body’s natural defenses) is weakened and compromised, which leaves you even more vulnerable to future infections!

Common conditions related to compromised immunity:

  • Frequent colds & flus (treatment & prevention)
  • Seasonal allergies
  • Asthma
  • Sinusitis
  • Urinary tract infections
  • Ear, nose & throat infections
  • Autoimmune conditions
    (ie. Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, Rheumatoid arthritis, Ulcerative colitis, Lupus, etc.)

What is causing my immune system to be weak?

  • Stress (Adrenal gland imbalances)
  • High sugar intake
  • Food sensitivities
  • Poor diet
  • Nutrient deficiencies (ie. zinc, B vitamins, etc.)
  • Gut bacteria imbalances
  • Low stomach acid
  • Underactive / Overactive immune responses
  • Prescription drugs (ie. cortisone)
Did you know that 60% of your immune system cells live in your gut?
