Do you have Low Immunity?

Do you feel like you are the one in the office who’s always sick, or you seem to pick up every bug that’s going around? Maybe you have thrush that keeps coming back or you know if you get the flu it will always last longer than anyone else’s or turn to bronchitis. You may even have been told you need to have your tonsils or adenoids removed. Perhaps before you go under the knife and before you reach for another round of antibiotics you should visit Karina at Sowelu. What you probably don’t realise is that some foods like dairy, wheat, bananas and even avocado can cause excess mucous. This extra mucous provides the perfect breeding ground for bacteria and before you know it you are infected – again! You may also be unaware that antibiotics can be non-selective. This means that they kill off all bacteria, good and bad, and your good bacteria is necessary for a healthy gut and a healthy gut makes for a healthy immune system.

So if you are sick of being sick perhaps it’s time to look at why your immune system isn’t as resilient as it should be and why the only thing you can catch is a cold! At Sowelu, we look at your current diet and lifestyle to determine why your immune system is struggling to keep up. We remove foods from the diet that can cause excess mucous and replace them with foods rich in sickness fighting nutrients like Zinc and Vitamin C. If caught and treated early enough we can even replace the need for cold and flu medications and antibiotics with natural supplements and herbs. Please remember at Sowelu we always save one appointment space per day for emergencies. So if you do happen to wake with the flu, a sore throat, thrush or a UTI get on to it straight away and book in!

Marcelle is very friendly. She is also very knowledgeable, and she explained everything to me in a way that I could easily understand. I was totally amazed at how she was able to link my blood test results to how I was feeling. It all made so much sense. She also did not try and sell me all these expensive products which was a reason I tended to stay away from most naturopaths. I would highly recommend her to anyone wishing to learn about naturopathy.

Emily is an amazing natropath. She has made me feel so comfortable in such a short time and has filled me with confidence as we work towards my health goals. Emily is caring and takes so much time explaining things to me to help me understand what I need to focus on to get the results I need. Everyone I have spoken to at the Body Institute is lovely. I'm so happy that they were referred to me.

Georgia is so friendly, knowledgeable and approachable - I’ve noticed such an improvement within my digestive health in particular which I have struggled with for a long time, the supplements and lifestyle changes have been so effective. Through working on my gut health I feel that my overall health has been optimised also.
