Whether you’re traveling across the country to visit family or having a small celebration at home, poor gut health can put a damper on your holiday. Regardless of how “good’ you’ve been during the quarantine months, rich foods and alcohol are difficult to avoid during the holidays. Some level of bloating, gas, weight gain or constipation usually follow these dietary choices.
I get this question a lot.
Patient: “I think I know what to do to be healthy, but it seems like no matter what I do, I don’t feel any better in the long-run. Why do I keep failing?”
My Response: “Unfortunately, you haven't been equipped with the right kind of support. While it certainly requires your commitment to a process, here’s what I do as a health coach that can help you live a healthier life…”
As it turns out, your current health matters a lot when it comes to how your body responds to a viral infection like COVID-19.

In 94% of deaths there has been the presence of underlying conditions (1).

As you tend to your body and support your immune systems, please make sure you’re also nurturing your emotional health. With more time at home we don’t want to underestimate the importance of taking care of our own mental and emotional well-being. You would not be alone if during this unique time you found yourself feeling all sorts of emotions that may or may not be typical for you. Some feel grateful for time off, others feel anxious; some find themselves impatient with family, and naturally many feel concerned. It’s all so understandable given what we are living through right now. Many people don’t have their jobs and commute to occupy their time and the increased family time is an adjustment.

Your immune system is designed to protect you from illness every day, but it can become overwhelmed during the winter cold and flu season. It can also be weakened due to environmental factors such as poor sleep, diet, and stress. There are lots of quality oral supplements that can support the immune system, but your body doesn’t fully absorb this type of supplement since they must first be processed by your digestive system. You can strengthen your immune system with an IV vitamin drip specifically designed with the vitamins, mineral and nutrients that support your immune health. 100% of the nutrients are absorbed into the body so they can work immediately at the cellular level.
