Episode Info:

This week I am joined by Immunologist Dr. Jenna Macciochi specialises in understanding how nutrition & lifestyle interact with the immune system in health & disease. She is a Mum of twins and understands the added challenges of parenting when we ourselves are unwell - so it was a pleasure to learn more about what we can do to stay healthy more of the time. Jenna gives detailed insight into the four pillars of immune system health; movement, rest, stress and nutrition. We chat about- - Her path to developing a fascination and career in the field of immunology, and what drives her passion today. - Movement for a healthy immune system, and why it is so important. - Rest and sleep, and why it is so crucial for fighting viruses due to its healing and restorative effects. We discuss the pivotal role of Circadian Rhythms, and how eighty percent of our immune system is under Circadian Rhythm control. - Stress and how it impacts on our immune system, and what we can do to counter stress hormones which make us ill. - Nutrition and the three elements we should focus on for our immune system. Jenna describes why fibre, phytonutrients, and fats are essential to immune health. This episode is supported by MORI - Use code 15OFF50 for £15 off £50.
