Why there is no such thing as ‘boosting’ our immune system but 6 simple things we can all do instead

During this changing and sometimes scary time many of us will be searching for ways to protect ourselves. There is a barrage of misinformation on the internet and social media about how you can 'boost' your immune system, and hundreds of recommendations for supplements. I wanted to provide you with some clarity on this and explain why we can’t boost our immune system but share with you some key nutrition and lifestyle ways we can support our overall health which can help to support (not boost!) our immune function.

Clemmie Macpherson

Hello, I'm Clemmie. I help people Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) and Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), to live their life to the full again. I don’t believe these illnesses have to be a life sentence. I’ve been there, where you are, feeling helpless, exhausted and wondering how you are going to live the rest of your life like this. But it doesn't have to be that way - I can help you find a way forward. I am a Qualified Nutritional Therapist, I have ulcerative colitis and I am totally passionate about helping people with their IBD & IBS, and getting the message out there as to how important the food we eat and the way we live is to our quality of life. Whether you are right at the beginning of your journey with IBD or have been living with your condition for years and feel like you have tried almost everything, there are things you can do everyday, beyond the medication you are taking, to help you take back control.
