MEDICINE CUPBOARD: Health-Boosting Winter Essentials 2023
We often get asked about the best ways to ward off winter bugs. How can we prepare our bodies to best combat those winter nasties? The answer is simple: Support your immune system! We've put together our top immunity boosters that are absolutely essential for winter 2023.

What happens if that bug comes home from childcare with the little ones and catches you off guard? Our recommendation is to continue with some immune support but step it up to something much stronger that will help manage symptoms as well. Don’t forget that cold and flu tablets are still one of the best ways to help combat those symptoms
(Such as fever and sore throat) so it’s not as miserable while you get better!

The formula used by Metagenics ANDRO NK has been shown to reduce the severity of infection and provide symptom relief including fever, sore throat and phlegm.

GADGETS & TECH:  Winter Essentials 2023
Medisana Foot Warmer
With technology all around us there are some smart ways to help keep your wee hands and feet warm this winter.

I bought my mum one of these last winter and she absolutely loves it! She suffers from subpar circulation in the feet, and this was a game changer. With 3 heat intensity settings keep your feet warm all winter while you are relaxing at home. The heat also improves circulation which comes with its own benefits! Check it out at Farmers here.

Dyson Pure: Hot & Cool.

Heaters are so necessary but also usually ruins the aesthetic of your living room. Looking for practical and stylish? Our favorite is the Dyson Hot & Cool. Can be used all year round due to its dual functionality, looks great in any space and is currently on special at Dyson New Zealand. Check it out here.
PANTRY: Winter Essentials 2023
Load up your pantry this winter with all the essentials. This means honey for all those sore throats, and plenty of tea and coffee to keep you warm and cozy all winter long. 

With so many options on the market it’s hard to pick a favorite especially with so many flavors of Tea and Honey but when it comes to coffee, we have a clear favorite!

With so many great options on the market it’s hard to pick just one roaster or coffee brand as a favorite. Over the years we have tried them all, but being health professionals, coffee is such an integral part of your day that you quickly get accustomed to all the options out there. 

I personally prefer coffee black (long and short) and over the years I keep navigating back to Allpress. Their dark and espresso blends are amazing, full of flavor and body. 

Couple them with a  Delonghi La Specialist Maestro and you are in heaven! Pick up a bag of Allpress Beans or Powder at your local coffee shop or online at Allpress.
BEDROOM:  Winter Essentials 2023
Obviously keeping warm means lots of blankets in the bedroom and for those that need absolute warmth, electric blanket options are all over the show. Unpopular opinion – I personally hate electric blankets. 

I have seen them cause skin issues, back problems and in severe cases dangerous environments when they get too old or wires start to fray. 

I also like dual climate personally, where my body is warm but maybe my feet or hands are poking out for some cool. I know, I know – that’s why I said unpopular. So, my go to when I need a little warmth during sleep is either a hot water bottle or a wheat bag.
