Welcome to Create Shift podcast season 6 ep1, a deep dive into how to boost your immune system from a holistic perspective with guest Emma Newlyn. As I write this it’s Wednesday on week two of lockdown in the UK. We find ourselves navigating entirely uncharted waters. Our lives, work and entire worlds are changing. It’s challenging and scary to say the least. And yet there is – I think – some hope to be found in all of this. The systems we’ve known for so long are crumbling, and with that comes the chance for different and perhaps better systems to be built in their place. I hope that holistic living and the things we talk about on this podcast may play more of a role in this new world.

Perhaps this season of the podcast can support you to gently ask questions of what kind of life you’d like to return to, and encourage you to find the ways you can best support yourself and those around you right now. In today’s episode returning guest Emma Newlyn and I talk about the immune system and offer practical suggestions for ways we can all support our immunity.
