One topic in particular that becomes popular during this time of the year is immunity, and more specifically ‘boosting’ our immune system to prevent us from getting ill over the winter period.

In this episode, Nicole explains why having an immune system that’s in overdrive is not something we want, as it can sometimes trigger autoimmune diseases and make flare ups and relapses worse. Instead, what we want is a balanced immune system. Tune into the full episode to hear Nicole’s top 10 tips for supporting your immune function during this season and for the long term!
