“An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure”.
- Benjamin Franklin
Coronavirus is on the verge of being the next worldwide pandemic. Thousands of people, mostly in China, have contracted the virus. Yesterday New Zealand had its first reporting of the virus at Auckland hospital. With no known cure for this virus, researchers are working furiously to find a way to treat those with this potentially deadly infection. And while the world is focused on a cure, not enough of the conversation is focused on the things people can do to avoid contracting the disease!
“A clever person solves a problem a wise person avoids it”.
- Albert Einstein
As with most of these epidemics, sadly the people who generally die are the elderly and those with weak immune systems. At Holistic Health & Wellness we are combating this issue by using natural, safe and scientifically researched approaches to strengthen the body’s natural biological functions to combat and avoid disease/viruses. We spend a great deal of time with our clients to design a personalised plan that is right for them. It should come to no surprise that to promote a strong immune system, we must maintain a healthy diet, lifestyle and exercise regime. But with so much information out there, it can be confusing to know where to start and too daunting to bother.
“You seek too much information and not enough transformation”.

As an example, herbs and supplements such as vitamin C, echinacea, elderberry and garlic are all beneficial nutrients to help fight off and/or prevent an infection. However, many of these supplements brought over-the-counter are limited due to ineffective dosing, poor quality and/or absorption ability. It is important to make an appointment with a qualified naturopathic practitioner who specialises in this market to make sure that the herbs/supplements you are taking are of a high quality and have therapeutic effects. Let us help you simplify the confusion of this market and provide you with the tools that actually work to boost your resilience against disease.
