Winter Is Here: Boost Your Immune System The Club Health Way

Here are 5 steps all of us can take to protect our health

The phrase ‘prevention is better than cure’ is most commonly attributed to the Dutch philosopher Desiderius Erasmus who lived around the year 1500. While medicine has come a long way in the 521 years since, the saying is still true now as it were back then.

With the winter months creeping up on us, the best way to avoid the flu, the sniffles, or any other condition (yeah, we’re looking at you Covid-19), that might keep you in bed, is taking proactive steps to build a bulletproof immune system.

Here are 5 steps all of us can take to protect our health like Jon Snow protected the Kingdom of the North.

Manage stress levels

We understand this is easier said than done. The vast majority of our clientele is ambitious, driven people who milk every second of every day going after their dreams. That attitude often blurs the line between giving everything you have and giving more than you can. Burnout and stress are some of the most common ailments we encounter at ClubHealth.

It’s important to understand that your body and mind needs rest, breaks and selfcare. Think of the most expensive, high-performing car on the market. You still need to switch it off, you still need to refuel it, you still need to change gears. You’re no different.

Manage your workload to allow breaks during the day, leave your weekend free, and never overpromise.

Correct supplementation

There are more health supplements on the market than there are stars in the sky and it sometimes gets overwhelming trying to sift through them. To help you simplify the selection process, we advise you to look at a couple of factors separating the good, from the bad and the ugly-tasting.

Make sure the supplements come from a reliable source. Our Boost supplement for example, was made in small batches and we had complete control and oversight of the production process. Is that the same with commercially, mass-produced supplements? No.

Secondly, you need to take the time and investigate the ingredients. Reading the label of a nutrition supplement might not mean much at a first glance but you owe it to yourself to do some research before you put things in your body. Our Boost immune formula uses the purest ingredients, is free of allergens, GMO substances, and gluten. Two of the main ingredients in the formula are Red Reishi mushroom and Turkey tail mushroom.

Balance your diet  

The amount of digital ink that has been spilt over diet plans, healthy food and nutritious snacks is hard to calculate. While it all might sound blah to you, it is one of the most important factors in protecting your body from winter viruses.

Foods like green vegetables, egg yolks, mushrooms, salmon, canned tuna, and beef liver are superfoods that can build the anti-flu fortress you want. Nobody said you should ban the occasional chocolate bar or the all so delicious cupcake. What you need to do is eat some of the aforementioned foods as well and create a balance you do not despise.

Don’t cheat your sleep regiment

What does sleeping have to do with the flu and your immune system? In a recent study, scientists found that quality sleep can bolster the T cells in your body that fight off infection. Sleep does not only rejuvenate and recharges your batteries in the short-term, but it also builds a wall of healthy cells ready to battle unwelcome intruders.


Before you roll your eyes and start thinking of sweaty weight rooms and environments that make you feel uncomfortable, we have something to tell you. Exercise comes in many ways, shapes and forms and at ClubHealth, we have found ways to make exercising personal, effective and functional.
Our Clinical Pilates and one-on-one rehab training sessions are massively popular amongst our patients for a good reason. We give people who walk through our doors the necessary attention and guidance to make their visit one to remember and want to replicate.

That’s it, five simple steps to take care of your body, mind and as a result, your immune system.
