Professor Lesley Braun facilitates a conversation with Dr Adrian Lopresti, Dr Damian Kristoff, Emma Sutherland and Dr Michelle Woolhouse, all from different modalities and perspectives looking at immunity.  

Key foundational concepts such as holism and interconnectedness, self care and the importance of convalescence are covered as is a deep dive into key herbs and nutrients to support the immune system. 

We hope this helps support you and your patients negotiate this winter season, the seriously cold weather, and arms you with some practical prescribing perspectives.

Vitamin C, well known for its immune support action, forms a major part of most Australian diets, leading to presumptions that clients are meeting nutritional requirements. While this essential vitamin has a plethora of other health benefits, more Australians may be deficient than we realise with the re- emergence of scurvy in modern day populations.

Vitamin C (also known ascorbic acid, AA) is a hydrophilic molecule that is vital for optimal functioning. Humans cannot synthesise vitamin C endogenously as they do not make the enzyme L-gulono-1,4 lactone oxidase which is essential for the biosynthesis of vitamin C.1 Instead, dietary vitamin C must be obtained to ensure daily adequate intake.
