And on this week’s show!
In this week’s show, we talk about the immune system again from the ‘what it needs to function, how to boost it and how to save the day when it’s under attack, with the experienced naturopath, Jules Galloway. We cover all the body’s systems that contribute to immune function, nutrients, gut health, herbal and supplement support, and more in this comprehensive and supportive road-map style show. I hope it supports you and that you consider sharing it with your friends and family so we can all be our healthiest selves at a time where many infections are floating around, not to mention the main star infection that is making things particularly challenging right now. Missed our shows on immune system disarray with Dr Gary Caplan and on nutrition for immune support with Immunobiologist, Bill Giles? Worth heading back. We’ve got Long Covid coming up too!
Questions I asked Jules:
- Section 1: Building blocks for immune function/healthy response (gut health, hormones, stress and sleep quality, environmental toxin exposures, blood sugar regulation, and whatever else you want to bring up there)
- Section 2: When there are lots of lurgies about – what is a good prophylactic approach in the day-to-day immune boosting to minimise or even sometimes avoid what’s going around? (seasonal/pandemic etc)
- Section 3: So we catch something: What are the most important nutrients to increase intake of through food and supplementation? Herbs to support? What can we safely do ourselves vs requiring naturopathic/doctor support in terms of upping dosages beyond daily limit recommendations?
- Section 4: Recovery – what gets hit the worst after cold and flu viruses and how can we ensure we recover strong – things to explore if recovery is slow or if one is experiencing post-viral fatigue.

This month, we’re featuring Nordic Naturals Arctic Cod Liver Oil as a great product to have in your tool kit. Talk to your health professional about therapeutic dosage levels or just take what’s written on the bottle for a daily benefit.
When it comes to the benefits of Omega 3s, there are many but I found two studies of interest – one on covid and long-covid that’s worth reading and another on the benefit for brain development and support for children and teens with ADHD. Get your Arctic Cod Liver oil at your local health shop or visit Thera Health Australia (therahealth.com.au) for stockists.
