What would you recommend?

Greg is a 45-year-old Gulf War Veteran who gets frequent upper respiratory tract infections and is struggling to manage his asthma. Greg notes he feels overall fatigued and he is tired of “always having a cold” and “getting whatever everyone else has, only worse.” He wonders if something is wrong with his immune system that is causing this.

What would you tell Greg and how would you implement a Whole Health approach to care?

Our Immune System Health overview provides additional information about Greg and discusses approaches to clean living, healthy eating, adequate sleep, exercise, positive relationships, and stress reduction to help improve symptoms. We also offer Whole health tools on specific topics related to immune system health below.
