Healthful Hints: Strengthen your immune system

I’ve been toying around with the idea of launching a Healthful Hints YouTube channel and finally decided to just go for it!

Healthful Hints is a weekly update on all things nutrition. On a weekly basis, I’ll be addressing reader questions, talking about my favorite foods and products, health in the news, and providing seasonal nutrition recommendations.

Like reading about health, too? Check out some of my favorite health posts from the past:

  1. Fantastic post! I actually took notes on my Iphone so I won’t forget. I will have to try the Camu Camu powder someone else recommended it to me as well. I have three little boys and I am always looking for ways to keep them healthy. I am going to try incorporating fermented foods as well. I also wanted to share a few essential oils that I use that really help boost the immune system. There is a specific blend I use called Anti-Bacterial/Viral Essential Oil Blend as a disinfectant. It can be used in the tub, diffused or used as a massage oil that helps boost the immune system. For my boys I diffuse it or put some in the bath tub and it seems to give their immune systems a boost and kick any acute symptoms that are onsetting.

  2. I love the tips! Can’t wait to here more. I wouldn’t obsess over the background. Just hearing what you have to say is all that matters!
    I am really new at eating healthy, and was just wondering, are there any circumstances where you should get a flu shot? I have a seriously compromised immune system because of meds I have to take, and am one of those “old dogs learning new tricks”. Don’t know what to expect if I would get the flu.

  3. Why are seriously just THE cutest??? Pass along some of that cuteness our way, will ya? ;)

    • Aw thanks, Cara! Your comments always bring a smile to my face :)

  4. It was so great to hear you talk instead of just reading your info for a change!!:) Keep up the great work Leanne! Your blog is so informative and I love how not only are your recipes very original, but you take the time to educate and share your helpful hints regarding all things, like the best places to shop, supplements, packing etc,etc. I’m always excited to see what you will share next!!! You are really doing a lot of good here:)

    • Thanks Mel :) Your comment made my day. Thank you, thank you. If you have any suggestions on healthful hints video subjects, please let me know!

  5. Great video Leanne!!! Can’t wait to see more!
    As for the flu shot….not in this house!
    Hope you had a great holiday weekend! :) :) :)

  6. Awesome! I was just visiting family this weekend and my dad came down with a cold while I was there. I now have some tips to pump up my immune system so I don’t get sick too! It’s fun to hear your voice after only seeing photos of you and what you write. Loved the bloopers at the end too. :-)
