Did you know that Australia is now one of the nations that work the longest hours in the world? The relaxed image of the easy-going Aussie would seem a thing of the past. The pressure we feel from our workplace or family or most importantly ourselves has us continually ‘soldiering-on’
We can sometimes see ourselves as invincible and that any illness is either a weakness or a nuisance that needs to be dealt with quickly so we can get on with the important things in our lives.
With this mindset we do not allow any time to be sick and we don’t take the time to rebalance and recover from our illnesses.
Our concern here at Mammoth Health is that what we are seeing is a direct reflection of a driven, unbalanced culture that allows no time for illness. Our society expects performance and results and advocates ‘quick fixes’. The problem with these however is that they mask symptoms and can drive illness deeper and thus have the potential to manifest in more serious and sometimes chronic illness.
Even the most robust amongst us usually succumbs to at least one illness over Winter.
Rather than trying to soldier on, the secret to great health and vitality is to allow ourselves the time to rest and recover. This gives us the best chance of ensuring the bug is fully resolved and reduces the risk of it lingering in the form of post-viral coughs, colds, lowered mood, energy and vitality.
Our 4 Steps to Regaining Health & Vitality after Winter Illness
If you do succumb to a winter illness follow these 4 steps to restore your health and vitality.
Step 1: Stimulate your Immune System
Use the Immune Stimulating Herbs such as Andrographis, Echinacea, Olive leaf, Vitamin C and Zinc supplements to help your immune system to fight the virus. Viruses can’t be killed like bacterial infections. So you need to boost your immune defences which puts them in an unfavourable environment so they won’t thrive.
Step 2: Use Immune Tonics
If you find the virus is lingering and you’re not regaining full health and vitality now is the time to use Immune Tonic herbs such as Astragalus, a Mushroom Complex, a good Probiotic, Vitamin C and Zinc
Step 3: Convalesce
Give yourself permission to allow your body time to fight the virus. Nobody likes to just hang around on the couch all day (we need to resist the feeling that we are wasting time), but rest is the secret to restoring health and vitality.
Step 4: Address the Cause
Always address the cause of any illness. Whether it be poor food choices, lack of exercise, too much stress, not enough sleep or an overall unbalanced lifestyle, identifying the cause of what compromised your immune system in the first place will empower you to make choices to live a life of health and vitality.
