Life Lessons from the Geese

A friend of mine was recently sharing about the innate wisdom of her chickens.  It reminded me of this wonderful story, which seems particularly appropriate at this time, and in this era of rapid change, disruption and often a growth that can create overwhelm, discomfort and distress.

The story shows you we have much to learn from our feathered friends. There’s a great deal to be learned from the teamwork shown in Lessons From The Geese.

In the autumn if you live in a region where they pass by, you see geese heading north (or south depending on where you live) for the winter flying along in the “V” formation,

90 Nutrients And Immunity

Build A Healthy Immune System

While the Harvard Health School states that there are no scientifically proven direct links between lifestyle and enhanced immune function, it thankfully (and not surprisingly) goes on to say that your first line of defense is to choose a healthy lifestyle. Following general good-health guidelines is the single best step you can take toward keeping your immune system strong and healthy.

It also goes on to say that to function well, your immune system requires a balance and harmony or all the macro and micro nutrients necessary for health. We hypothesise that there are over 90 of these nutrients necessary to enable your body to function as it should.
