Prevention is better than cure

Why prevention is always better than cure

I’m sure you have heard the phrase “Prevention is better than cure” and have probably uttered it yourself to someone at some time. It is a term we are all familiar with but what does it really mean and are you willing to partake in this strategy.
After years in practice, I have noticed is that most people wait until they are in pain or sick before they come and have some treatment. Similarly, few take the time to schedule a health and wellness plan for themselves to protect themselves from illness. Whether this relates to a sore stiff neck or back, a lurking sniffle or a recurrent health issue most people ignore the signs their body is giving them until it is too difficult to ignore and it needs urgent attention.

The best naturopathic approach to support your immune system during a pandemic, before and during winter is to focus on taking nutritional and herbal medicines which strengthen the immune system and help with increasing your defences. 

There are many evidence based herbs and nutrients which have been well researched and are know to reduce the duration and severity of infections as well as boost your immune capacity.
