Colds & Immunity

Colds are caused by a number of different viruses. There is no cure for the common cold, however there are simple measures you can take to help alleviate the symptoms while helping the body support the immune system.


Allergies occur when the immune system overreacts to a ‘trigger’ or allergen. A common type of allergy is hay fever, which occurs when the body reacts to pollen or dust.


Metabolism is the process of breaking down proteins, carbohydrates and fats which gives the body energy to maintain itself. The rate of your metabolism, along with lifestyle and diet, may affect our ability to lose weight. Increasing the body’s metabolic rate increases the rate at which calories are used which helps weight loss.
