Spring has arrived. Although there was a cold start, warmer days are coming and daylight savings is here. Some people have been suffering with recurrent colds and flu’s but may be facing the looming challenge of springtime hay fever or other types of reactions to pollens in the air. If you have a history of suffering from annoying hay fever symptoms, call one of our Naturopaths today to find out about booking a consultation and how they may help you sneeze less this springtime.
With the warmer weather many people are starting to exercise more, and enjoy a springtime menu with fresh foods and less of the comfort foods that filled our winter diets. It can be frustrating for people to find that they’re not losing the extra few kilograms they put on over the winter as easily as they once did. There may be nutritional deficiencies that are creating more of a challenge; or a slowing down in your metabolic rate. If you would like to put together a plan with a professional to address your weight, act now. The sooner you get started, the sooner you’ll see and feel the results.
Sometimes we find that our motivation is a little slow to pick up in the springtime. There are some wonderful herbs that can help us feel our best such as passiflora, magnolia and melissa. Debra and Paul have experience in creating herbal formula's that help pick people up, stay motivated and get them ready to make the most out of everyday.
With warmer weather comes trips to the beach and other sun related outings. If you have a history of annoying seasonal allergies bothering you; please be aware that ice-cream may aggravate them. Many ice-creams contain a thickener called Carrageen. This is known to irritate the digestive tract in some people, and worsen some of the annoying symptoms associated with spring time allergies.
Dealing with the core issues that affect your health now, will see a healthier you enjoying and making the most of the warmer months ahead.
