How to strengthen your immune system

How to strengthen your immune system | with Eva Akerholm | March 21st 2021


As we start to go out and mingle with our families and friends again, it’s worth taking some steps now to prevent falling ill when we meet our loved ones.

Barbara chatted to a renowned health coach, Eva Akerholm.  The talk was a positive exploration of the impacts of isolation and restriction, and how to come out of it strong and healthy.

Eva talked about how the Covid pandemic has caused a number of factors that actually weakens our immune system at a time when:

  • Staying inside with no direct sunlight makes us deficient in Vit D.
  • Limited time outdoors reduces our access to oxygen and masks means we breathe in toxins.
  • The extended period of isolation with lack of human contact is mentally challenging.
  • Lack of exposure of the immune system to viruses and bacteria makes it weaker.


Eva’s long-held passion to support people to become healthier and find a balance in their life is paramount in this interview.
