We are only a few weeks away from Summer but wet weather and cool days are still being felt in Adelaide.
There has been a late season spike in colds and flu's, with some people report not quite being able to shake them off. Some people report feeling tired and run down, and not really getting back to their well self. Naturopathy focusses on maximising your healthy immune response so you can bounce back quicker. This means less sick days and less days away from school and work.
Lets not forget that a healthy immune system is also a form of defence from the unpleasant symptoms of hayfever. Even though its still cool, the blossoms and pollen are out. As the weather dries out and there is more wind, hayfever symptoms will likely strike a lot more people.

With this research they can inform patients of specific Gene defects such as MTHFR, COMT, NAT2, CYP1A1, CYP1B1, DAOA. Then appropriate lifestyle recommendations can be made.
