Build Your Immunity for Life
Diet and Lifestyle Choices to Protect against Infection
Written by Dr Roderick Mulgan MB ChB MPP LLB(Hons)
The global health emergency of COVID-19 brought into sharp focus the damaging effects of living with harmful micro-organisms. While vaccines and antibiotics are used to treat infections, these work only by assisting your existing immune system. No matter what level of medical support you choose, the optimal way to combat infection is to develop and maintain a robust natural immune system.
Based on scientific research, this book will help anyone wanting to build their immunity and optimise their resistance to disease. It explains how the immune system works, and how it relies on key minerals, vitamins and lifestyle choices for maximum effect. Many people, including those who try to eat well, do not consume all the essential micronutrients their immunity needs.
Packed with valuable information and practical strategies, Build Your Immunity for Life explains how to enhance the body’s natural defences. It is an empowering resource for anyone wanting to improve their immunity and their overall health.
