This morning I noted a post on a Facebook forum for holistic practitioners. Someone asked what could be done to stay healthy through the winter months. Last year, this person had been ill constantly and was hoping to not repeat that. There followed a list of comments, everyone recommending their favorite supplement for supporting the immune system. There were 43 comments but not a single one mentioning Self Care!
Everyone may have their own “secret” remedy but the real “secret” is that you can’t expect any supplement to protect you if you’re not practicing good self care!
Taking supplements is fine, and I’ll share my favorites below, but if you want them to work well there are some basics that can’t be ignored.
