How to protect yourself from winter coughs & colds – Natural tips you can make at home

Now, for some of you who have already had a cold/cough I realise I am too late but here are a few tips for next time!

1 – Turmeric – the Indian spice, nature’s great antibiotic, helps defend against all the bugs. Take ¼ teaspoon in water 3 x per day. Don’t believe me just try it.

2- Garlic – must be organic tho. It  helps detoxify which is one of the main causes of weakening the body.

3- Fresh Ginger & fresh lemon (organic – no wax) – I make it every morning. Squeeze half or quarter slice of lemon in hot water add chopped ginger with skin. If you do have a sore throat add a teaspoon of honey – it’s brilliant. Cleans out the liver and helps alkalise the body (I know its acid but it turns into alkaline once inside – trust me).

4- Stay off Heavy foods – stay away from them for the next month or so as much as possible. We all know what they are. Yes the carbs. Bread, pasta, wheat and dairy products. The clog up the pipes.

5- Stay off the sugar, the bugs love sugar!

Just a few ideas that I hope can help you through the winter months…

Satya Yoga was established in London in 2003 by Zena Kidd-May, who taught yoga to private individuals at her London studio for several years.

I really enjoyed the Yoga day retreat. In particular the first session which I found inclusive of all abilities and within my amateur capabilities. The food was fantastic. Please can I have your energy ball recipes? The second session was relaxing although I didn't get much from the group discussion. Guess I prefer to do the yoga. Would definitely recommend the whole day experience.
