5 ways to Optimize your immune system
Sleep—get your 8 hours a night.
Optimize adrenal gland function. (stress handler)
Optimize your nutritional support.
Address chronic infections (especially yeast/candida, Lyme, and viral infections).
In addition, natural immune boosters such as thymic protein (a natural product that mimics the hormone regulating immunity) can be very helpful.
Lets get started
Sleep. Research has shown that a powerful way to immune-suppress an animal is to sleep deprive it. The same applies to people. Aim to get at least 8 hours of sleep a night. If you are having trouble sleeping try our Plant People-NightLight Calming & Chill Mushroom Cacao Mix. It quiets your mind, soothes your body and reduces irritability.
Eliminate chronic infections—especially yeast/Candida overgrowth. Eliminating the yeast can help improve digestion and "leaky gut." This decreases the amount of partially digested food that gets from the gut into your blood—which then has to be removed by your immune system. It will also help your chronic sinusitis and spastic colon go away. Try our Candida Rid, digestive enzymes and our high potent multi Probiotics to heal your leaky gut.
Improve digestion with natural plant based digestive enzymes. This also decreases leaky gut and takes a load off your immune system. Consider these if you have indigestion or if your spastic colon/irritable bowel syndrome persists despite yeast therapy.
Improve nutrition. Optimizing your nutritional status in general plays a key role in your immune system staying healthy. Two key nutrients are zinc and Vitamin D—both of which tend to be low in immune deficiency. As 90% of our Vitamin D comes from sunshine, it has been estimated that the misguided medical advice to avoid sunshine causes 85,000 extra cancer deaths a year in the U.S. It also contributes to Multiple Sclerosis and diabetes (both have an autoimmune component) as well as osteoporosis and chronic pain. Many other nutrients are also important, and I recommend taking a good multivitamin to optimize nutrition. In addition, spend time out in the sun each day. Remember—avoid sunburn, not sunshine!
If you have chronic sore throats and swollen glands, we find that optimizing adrenal hormone function (your bodies stress handler) will often make this go away. An herbal supplement that support adrenal function can be an excellent natural aid.
