During the winter season, however, our immune defences face increased challenges. Due to the colder temperatures, respiratory viruses can thrive more easily and survive longer. Moreover, the cold and the dry air produced by heating systems can irritate the mucous membranes in our airways, making us more vulnerable to infections. Especially now that it seems Covid-19 won’t be leaving us any time soon, many people are wondering if there are effective ways to strengthen their immune system. A well-balanced, vitamin-rich diet, the right amount of sleep and physical exercise in the open air are doubtlessly precious weapons in our fight against pathogens. Are they enough, though?
Modern complementary medicine now offers us a range of innovative immune boosting treatments that are natural, targeted and, more importantly, effective.
