Wintertime presents health challenges that call for special measures. Concerns include cold temperatures, invader organisms, the immune system, nutrition and sleep.

We need to be prepared for cold temperatures with appropriate clothing. Warming ourselves and our vehicle ahead of time helps maintain a less stressful temperature shock. 

With superior nutritional supplementation, wise food choices and adequate sleep, good health can be maintained. Exercise may be less easy to accomplish in winter, especially when the outdoor weather is not favorable. Plan a regular exercise routine. Exercise equipment such as a rebound unit and some hand weights can make a big difference in good indoor exercise.

A strong immune system in particular is essential for winter, especially with the challenges of circulating infection agents. Certain vitamins, antioxidants, enzymes, probiotics, colostrum, silver and herbs are especially helpful for immune support.

The principles of natural health -- relax, detoxify and nourish -- support the immune system and keep the body functioning well in winter and throughout the year.
