Winter Recovery Support
Post Viral recovery using Herbal Medicine.
Stressful modern lifestyles, international travel and seasonal changes all impact on our immunity making us more susceptible to a variety of infections.
Some people can be left with annoying post viral symptoms that take weeks or months to resolve.
Herbal Medicine can play an important role in cleaning up the after effects from these invasive organisms, and strengthen an already compromised immune system.
Post viral symptoms can include a residual dry cough, fatigue, muscle aches, inflammation of the mucus membranes, including sinus and gastro-intestinal , headaches, and vertigo and in some individuals susceptibility to catching the next bug.
Plant medicine provides anti-inflammatory, anti-spasmodic, demulcent, anti-fatigue, adaptogenic, and of course anti-viral actions are the ideal herbs to include in the herbal tool kit.
Lomatium, Echinacea, Astragalus, Ribwort, Mullein and Marshmellow are all herbs that can help. Talk to Julia about what is best suited for you.
Alongside a diet rich in fresh fruit and vegetables, quality protein and adequate water intake, herbal medicine is invaluable in speeding up the road to recovery following viral infections.
