Ways to improve your immune system naturally
The immune system is a complicated thing.
It has the ability to protect us from diseases - keeping us fit, healthy and altogether positive.
On the other hand, should our immune system be attacked, we are far more susceptible to colds, flues and other viruses.
It's really important to keep our immune system in tip top condition because, if it does get weak, illnesses could develop and become far more severe than a simple cold.
With this one, there is no easy solution to looking after our insides.
Instead, we have to look for natural ways to keep our innards ticking over nicely.
Fruits and vegetables
It's no surprise that putting healthy stuff inside you makes you healthier, happier and less likely to get ill.
Fruit and veg is jam packed full of different vitamins and minerals that strengthen your immune system.
Our bodies need all these different types of vitamins to stay healthy, so make sure that you get a good balance of fruit and veg.
As always, liquids are a great way to keep your body healthy.
Some drinks are more beneficial than others, while some are especially designed to ensure our insides stay perky.
Astragalus and Echinacea Herbal Drink is intended to promote strength and energy, giving our bellies exactly what they need to function perfectly.
It's a no-brainer that staying calm on the outside also keeps us calm on the inside.
A great way to relax is yoga - it combines exercise and leisure - two vital ingredients to maintaining a strong immune system.
Even if you haven't tried yoga before, it's the perfect sport for the season as you have the ability to stay indoors and find your inner 'zen'.
Research what kind of yoga may be good for you by grabbing a yoga manual, then all you need is a yoga mat and you're away!

- Carrot Oil for Face Hi Praise, Carrot oil, which is a carrier oil does have a slight ability to protect skin from the sun. However, it does not clear sunburn from your face or any of the oils you have mentioned. Coconut oil, Aloe Vera or Calendula oil might help. You can also apply essential oils that help sooth sun burn with either jojoba oil or sweet almond oil. The best essential oils for this would be lavender or peppermint. Hope this helps.

- Shatavari benefits for WomenHi D, indeed there is conflicting information on whether Shatavari can be taken during pregnancy or not. Some studies showed that Shatavari can affect milk supply during lactation, and that Shatavari (Asparagus racemosus) has possible teratogenicity so it should be avoided in pregnancy. Other studies showed that Shatavari is an ingredient in most herbal teas which are recommended to be taken during pregnancy and breastfeeding. I would recommend that you consult your GP or a qualified herbalist who deals with pregnant women before taking anything, in case you are already taking some supplements/ drugs or herbs to help with your pregnancy.
