Welcome to our new podcast, Natural Health Simplified.


Immune Essentials: Superstar nutrients

Can nutrients promote immune system function? We’ve all heard about vitamin C, but what about the evidence for other nutrients like vitamin D, zinc and selenium?


Immune Essentials: Do I need a supplement?

Diet is an important way to support immune system function. But is a good diet always enough? We discuss when lifestyle or life stage may call for a nutritional upgrade.


Immune Essentials: Can herbs help?

Herbal remedies have been used medicinally for generations in many cultures around the world. But where’s the evidence? We explore echinacea, astragalus, pelargonium and even a kitchen favourite, garlic.
