A poorly functioning immune system has a lot to do with what you eat. Western diets consist of many high-processed, anti-oxidant depleted foods—foods with added sweeteners, animal fats and protein—and not enough fruits, beans, seeds, and vegetables, which contain hundreds of the most important immune-building compounds. At Cedarvale, you can get right on track by infusing your diet with immune-building foods that taste great too. A relaxing stress-free environment is also beneficial in aiding a person to recover mentally, which in turn helps the immune system to perform better. Call us on 02 4465 1362 or message us today to see how we can help you with your immunity.

Relief from sinus congestion
“For many years I experienced distressing sinus congestion, most likely related to allergies and intolerance to certain foods. To compound my already less-than-optimum health status, I contracted a viral illness and then developed a secondary bacterial infection. The antibiotics I was consuming didn’t appear to be arresting the infection and I continued to feel tired, listless, and was becoming depressed. My parents drove me down to Cedarvale, for which I was thankful. After arriving, I immediately began a treatment program. I found the meals, though free of dairy products, to be very tasty and satisfying. In the mornings, effective hydrotherapy packs were applied to my chest and relieved much of the congestion by improving the circulation. In the afternoon a series of baths was used to elevate my body temperature and thus stimulate the white blood cells to fight the infection. The baths, although somewhat exhausting, proved very effective. The infection soon began to clear up, bringing much relief. For the first time in months I began breathing through my nose, helping me to sleep much better. By the end of the week I began to feel remarkably well – and free of sinus congestion! My grateful thanks to the dedicated staff whom I found to be most pleasant at all times. I would certainly recommend my stay at Cedarvale as being a positive experience. It is my intention to return sometime in the near future – this time just for some rest and relaxation!”Mrs L.A. - Sydney
