How to Boost Your Immunity and Respiratory Health Naturally

How to Boost Your Immunity and Respiratory Health Naturally

With the recent rise of respiratory illnesses in New Zealand, it is more important than ever to prioritise our health and wellbeing. At Huckleberry, we believe that the best way to support your immune system and respiratory health is by choosing natural and organic foods and supplements that are free of harmful chemicals and additives. That’s why we offer a wide range of products that can help you boost your immunity and prevent respiratory infections, such as:

Turmeric: This vibrant yellow spice has powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties that can help reduce the tissue inflammation associated with cold and flu. Turmeric also contains curcumin, a compound that has been shown to improve oxidative stress markers, which can affect the immune system. You can add turmeric to your curries, soups, and golden milk, or take it as a supplement.

Black Seed Oil: This oil is made from the seeds of the Nigella sativa flower, which has been used for thousands of years in ayurvedic medicine to support lung, sinus, and respiratory health. Black seed oil has anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, antiviral, and antifungal properties that can help fight off infections and soothe the respiratory tract. You can take black seed oil as a supplement or add it to your salads, smoothies, and yoghurt.

Yarrow: This herb is native to Europe and western Asia, where it has a long tradition of use in herbal medicine to treat bleeding wounds and support lung and respiratory health. Yarrow has astringent, anti-inflammatory, and antiseptic properties that can help clear the nasal passages, reduce mucus production, and relieve coughs and sore throats. You can brew yarrow as a tea or take it as a tincture. 

At Huckleberry, we have a team of qualified naturopaths who can provide you with personalised advice and recommendations based on your health goals and needs. Naturopathy is a holistic approach to health that uses natural therapies and remedies to support the body’s innate healing ability and restore balance and harmony. Naturopathy can help you with a variety of health issues, such as:

  • Allergies and asthma
  • Digestive problems

  • Stress and anxiety
  • Skin conditions
  • And more
