Cold & Flu

Healthy Immune Support 

Cold and flu support and prevention is well managed through naturopathic medicine using evidence based research.

Naturopathic medicine can support the cold and flu season by building a healthy immune system through herbal medicine, supplements, diet, nutrition, acupuncture and lifestyle modifications. Dr. Tali also focuses on reducing aggravating factors that can impact your immune system, such include: stress, anxiety, blood sugar management, sleep, and any other condition you have which compromise your immune health and make you more susceptible to catching a cold.

Typically season change is the most common time for people to get sick, which includes summer / fall to winter and winter to spring changes. Children and elderly also have a higher chance of catching a cold.

Why Choose Naturopathic Medicine for Your Colds & Flus?

There is a lot of research indicating specific supplements, diet and herbs not only help in prevention by boosting immunity but also reduce the severity and the length of your common cold and flu. Naturopathic medicine can help with: sinusitis, strep throat, common cold, chronic infections, diminished immune system (especially if you are compromised), ear infections, sore throat, fever, cough, bronchitis, lung infection etc.

The beauty in natural medicine is that not only it can provide strong antimicrobial and antiviral properties such as different medications do (antibiotics), but it can also support by building a healthy immune system (a function conventional medicine is lacking). Treatment to cold and flu is individualized as no two bodies are the same. Dr. Tali will dive into your health history through an in-depth intake to understand how your body needs to be supported. Depending on your individual case, different testing may be offered: nutritional status assessment, stool analysis (70% of our immune system is in the gut, so if you get sick often, it may be helpful to assess what you are lacking).

You can book an acute phone / in-person consultation, with Dr. Tali Troyansky if you are currently sick or feeling unwell. Locations: Toronto, Thornhill & Markham. Telemedicine is also available for patients all over Ontario (phone or video).
