Dr Sandra Cabot's Health Tips


Nurture your Immune System

– it is your greatest health asset

What does it do?

Your immune system protects you against:

  • Inflammation
  • Cancer
  • Infections

What does your immune system need?

Plentiful amounts of –

  • Zinc 15 to 20mg daily
  • Selenium 200mcg daily
  • Iodine 160 to 320mcg daily
  • Vitamin C 500mg daily
  • Vitamin D – the dose varies from 1000 to 3000 international units daily depending upon your blood levels
  • Omega 3 fatty acids from oily fish, ground flaxseeds, chia seeds and walnuts

Many Australians are deficient in these protective nutrients; no wonder many types of cancer have increased dramatically over the last decade.
