Special Episode: Eat For Immunity with Dr Jenna Macciochi

In light of the current Coronavirus pandemic - we thought it was a good opportunity for us to re-release a fantastic podcast that we recorded with Immunologist - Dr Jenna Macciochi, who specialises in understanding how nutrition and lifestyle interact with the immune system in health and disease.

There's a lot of information around at the moment concerning our immune health and we thought it would be a great opportunity to remind people just how incredible our bodies are and what we can all do to help ourselves stay well at this time.

For more specific information and a detailed Q&A session that I held recently on Instagram with Dr Jenna - please click this link here to view the conversation on YouTube. 

The topics that we covered on the Instagram live recently are still very much current today, with isolation, social distancing and trying to limit any contact all key areas for us all to be focusing on and prioritising right now.

In this episode, we talk about what immune health actually means and where it comes from
