How to support your immune system over the winter

We are really excited to introduce our guest author Dr Marilyn Glenville PhD who has written an article on how to prepare for winter health.

Dr Marilyn Glenville PhD is the UK’s leading nutritionist specialising in women’s health. She is the Former President of the Food and Health Forum at the Royal Society of Medicine and the author of a number of internationally bestselling books including ‘The Natural Health Bible for Women’. 
"It is important that you keep yourself as healthy as possible during the winter months for two reasons. Firstly, because we are going to see the usual cold and flu season begin and this can start as early as November. And secondly, as it appears a second wave of the virus is upon us and a variety of restrictions are being imposed in different parts of country we need to make sure our immune systems can cope."

Research projects funded by Walk the Walk make a huge difference!

We are delighted to share a message from Baroness Delyth Morgan, Chief Executive of Breast Cancer Now - one of the charities that has benefited from grants made by Walk the Walk, thanks to your support.


Baroness Delyth Morgan, Chief Executive of Breast Cancer Now

"The coronavirus pandemic has changed so many aspects of our lives. It has inspired me to evaluate how far we’ve come, to improve the lives of women and men affected by breast cancer, and think about the next steps we need to take to make sure progress doesn’t stall.

Breast Cancer Now is the UK’s first comprehensive breast cancer charity, formed through two mergers. First, the merger of Breakthrough Breast Cancer and Breast Cancer Campaign in 2015, and then the merger with Breast Cancer Care in 2019. Now, we provide support for today, through our Helpline and face-to-face services, and hope for the future through our world-class scientific research.

Throughout our journey, Walk the Walk has been our constant partner. Together, we’ve launched new studies, championed world-class science and funded the brightest minds in breast cancer research. We’ve made incredible progress and, as we’ve discovered how much more we still need to do, we’ve continued to work together to ensure a brighter future for all those affected by breast cancer."

“Soup is a good reason to love winter – it’s comforting, warming, nutritious and delicious.”

Every country across the globe has its own traditional soup that forms a staple part of the diet. Peanut soup in Africa, Polish Borscht, Hungarian Goulash, New England Clam Chowder, Scotch Broth, French onion soup, Italian Minestrone, Miso soup from Japan and even Birds Nest Soup, a rare delicacy from China.

In fact, historians believe that soup was around as early as 20,000BC. In 18th century Paris, broth, bouillon and consommé were served at the first public ‘restoratifs’ from where the word restaurant is derived.

There is a soup for every occasion, thick broths can be a real comfort blanket on a cold winter's day, or a chilled cooler like gazpacho on a hot summer's night.

Soup is often associated with being cared for, and as a child growing up, my earliest memories are of the delicious smells of soup slowly simmering away on my grandmother’s stove, and when anyone was ill, it was soup that came to the rescue. The magical mix of stock with fine noodles and tiny chopped vegetables was served up, always made you feel better, and to this day lovingly called ‘not well soup’. - Nina
