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 was worried about joining a yoga class as I see myself as a tight, stiff person. I had had bad experiences of classes before that were too fast and not well explained and they had left me feeling I’d ‘failed’. Zena’s classes are completely different – they are calm and mindful and each new pose is well explained. We are given the space to work at our own pace and the time to take something personal from each pose. My body is still pretty tight, but I love the yoga classes and at each lesson appreciate what I am able to do with the right encouragement. Zena creates a very productive and calm atmosphere, where I feel I am free to do what works for me without having to be in competition with others.
