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.

In this hectic life we all lead, it is easy to live entirely in our heads, but attending Zena's classes over the last couple of years has enabled me to reconnect mind and body. Zena beautifully demonstrates how to move through the poses, whilst keeping an expert eye on us, to maximise what her students receive in each pose. I feel as strong and fit and as connected with my body and its possibilities as I have ever done in my life, and have always felt in such capable and knowledgable hands at Satya Yoga. The guided relaxation at the end of each class is wonderfully restorative, as are Zena's homemade nutritional treats, allowing us to leave class feeling thoroughly nurtured both inside and out! I enjoy Zena's classes so much I have gone from attending one to two a week.
