Immune Modulation for the Prevention of Illness in Athletes
Restore your immune system to normal function Enhance the way your immune system performs Educate you on ways to look after yourself
Leroy developed the "Immune Modulation Program for the Prevention of Illness in Athletes" as part of his work with the Swans and then further driven by his time in India with the ICL.
The program was designed following consultation with the top Exercise Immunologists, Sports Dieticians, Exercise Physiologists and Sports Doctors from Australia, Europe and America.
It has been designed to combat the various illness issues encountered by athletes when they travel overseas and compete here in Australia, including:
- Colds and flus
- Other upper respiratory symptoms
- Traveller's Diarrhoea
- Other gastrointestinal symptoms
The core of the program is centred on the fact that the players are getting "sick" as a result of a compromised, or "weakened" immune system, not just because of exposure to pathogens such as bacteria's and viruses.
There are many factors that compromise an athletes' immune system including training parameters, diet and recovery. By controlling these factors the athlete is at a much lower risk of falling ill.
The program is extremely detailed and involves:
- Specific blood testing
- Individualised diet modification
- Bio-nutritional supplementation
- Training parameters modifications
- Recovery optimisation
- Lifestyle modification
