Immune Boost Plus - Ten Ways To Boost Your Immune System
Ten Ways to Boost Your Immune
The human immune system is a
very complex system that helps the body
fend off disease. From production of macrophages (cells that digest
foreign invaders) to interferon (which protects non-infected cells from
viruses) to production of T-cells (vital immune cells that kill virus,
fungi, and bacteria) the immune system stays busy protecting our bodies
In our fast paced, high-stress society our bodies are constantly under
attack from several sources at a time. It is not enough to eat well and
leave everything else to nature. We must actively boost our immune
systems to stay healthy.
When asked “What can you do to boost your immune
most Americans answer, “Take a multiple vitamin”.
this is very good advise, we cannot afford to stop there. Here are ten
ways you can boost your immune system to help it meet the daily
challenges of your modern lifestyle.
1 – Take a
multiple vitamin/mineral supplement daily. Make
sure it is made of natural ingredients, dissolves readily, and includes
abundant anti-oxidant factors.
2 – Supplement
your vitamin intake with extra vitamin C
(with riboflavinoids), anti-oxidants, and zinc, whenever you experience
added stress, immune challenge (exposure to an illness) or major change
(marriage, birth, job change…) in your life.
3 – Consider
Echinacea as a prophylactic (preventive
measure) during cold and allergy season.
4 – Establish a
regular exercise program. A strong body is
better able to put up a good fight against disease. Many people have
sedentary jobs in today’s economy; if that is true of you,
your family or a few friends to join you in an exercise challenge. Once
you have your body back under control, an hour 3 or 4 days each week is
plenty to keep it that way. Rebounding is an especially good lymphatic
5 – Quit smoking,
and while you are at it, bring your
alcohol consumption under control. Both habits are known to reduce and
weaken your immune response.
6 – Increasing
your water consumption will assist your body
with daily maintenance and with its battle to resist and cleanse your
body of disease and toxins. Your consumption should be 1 gallon of
water per day. This one lifestyle change could revolutionize your
7 – Many
researchers are now citing the detrimental effects
of excessive sugar consumption. We could all use to decrease our sweets
but that is especially true when our immune system is challenged by
disease. Research shows that the lymphatic system is depressed for ten
days after the consumption of refined sugars. So when you face health
challenge, fast from sweets for the duration.
8 – We all know
the FDA recommends several fruit/vegetables
food groups daily, but did you know that not all fruits and vegetables
are alike? That’s right, our bodies find more bio-available
nutrients and enzymes in raw fruit and vegetables. So increase your
consumption of raw produce for a healthier you.
9 – With our busy
high stress lifestyle we seldom take time
to pamper ourselves. This often adds up to an undernourished,
over-weight, lethargic body. Then when health challenge strikes, we
have no reserves to call in to the fight. A simple five-day raw food
fast is a great way to re-set your health. It gives your body a chance
to do some housecleaning while your G-I tract gets a little rest. Two
to four fasts per year are a great health rejuvenator.
10 – If your body
has already accumulated some serious
health risks, you might also want to ask your health provider about
cleansing. Certain chronic and degenerative diseases respond well to
colonic treatments; while other health issues can be resolved by
chelation therapy (removal of toxic build-up of poisons and heavy
metals). Both simple treatments rid the body of debris allowing the
body to function more freely and address less acute conditions.
Any one of these ten ideas, if applied, will immediately improve your
immune health. Pick one and gradually add in the others to super charge
your body with a strong lymphatic system and consequently vibrant
