Strengthen Your Immune System

Being immune to dangerous organisms and pathogens is part of our body’s normal programming.  It is possible to strengthen your immune system and help it work better, stronger and more efficiently with nutrition and body cleansing.

We come into contact with harmful pathogens such as bacteria and virus every day.  In addition, we must deal with environmental toxins that we come into contact with as well as fight internal metabolic wastes.  Lucky for us, our bodies are built with many components in place for immunity, regeneration and self-healing:

  • We have organs such as the liver to detox harmful substances
  • The colon and the skin eliminate toxins once they are neutralized
  • Our breath filters and carries out metabolic wastes (created internally) through our lungs in addition to filtering what it can from the air

You have the power to strengthen your immune system by keeping these organs strong and healthy.

We have a lymphatic system in place that carries our white blood cells such as macrophages, t-cells, lymphocytes and more. These are in charge of seeking out and killing the “bad guys” such as virus, bacteria and even deranged cells such as cancer cells.

How Can I Strengthen My Immune System?

Your body uses nutrients to make new white immune cells each day, which are needed to kill bacteria and other pathogens. Nutrients are needed to keep the liver and other organs strong that help detoxify and naturally cleanse your body. Strengthen and support this process with herbs and foods that contain the nutrition needed,  such as; seaweeds, dark green leafy veggies, berries, oranges, and even herbs such as curcumin, garlic and ginger.

By eating a wholesome, organic diet you help your body create new cells that eat up toxic cells and waste. When given the right building blocks (nutritious foods), these new cells can be strong enough to attack any virus, bacteria, carcinogens and other pathogens because we are exposed to them on a daily basis.

Another way to stay healthy with a strong immune system is to keep internal toxins at a minimum. Your organs are already working hard every day to fight pathogens and you can help it do this job with a diet and herbs to support your body's cleansing process. 

A whole body cleanse may help your immunity by supporting your body's natural systems and organs that cleanse and detoxify.  Eat plenty of fresh, organic fruits and vegetables, drink fresh vegetable juice, plenty of spring water and keep animal proteins to a minimum.  Instead, eat more organic nuts, seeds, sprouts, and protein packed grains such as quinoa and buckwheat.

Avoid foods that lower your immunity because they take more nutrients to process than they give you.  These include fast foods, highly processed foods, processed meats, and foods that are high in sugar and white flour.
