Natural Ways to Create a Stronger Immune System

January 04, 2018

Your immune system is an intricate, and highly sensitive infrastructure.

It charges to your defense at the first sign of a harmful virus, bacteria, fungus, or parasite.

Your immune system is always on high alert to deal with potential pathogens in your body.

When supported and balanced, your immune system can handle a wide range of antigens, like pollens, venoms, malignant cells, and chemicals in foods.

However, today, most of us face an overload of immune suppressors that drain our health, even in good weather.

Environmental toxins, prescription drug overuse and a nutrient poor diet all compromise immune health.

In the modern world, most of us need extra immune support to keep our systems functioning well and our bodies feeling good.

A few signs your immune defenses are low:

  • chronic colds, allergies, respiratory problems
  • immune-compromised illness, like chronic fatigue or fibromyalgia
  • digestive issues, like irritable bowel, frequent diarrhea, or constipation
  • high blood sugar (diabetes) or high blood fats (high cholesterol/liver disease)
  • autoimmune issues like Graves disease, Hashimotos, Lupus
  • frequent yeast imbalance or urinary tract infections (UTI’s)
  • long-term treatment with antibiotics, steroid, or other types of drugs

Does your immune system need a boost? Here are some simple, natural ways to create a strong immune system.

1. Start with your diet.

Focus on a whole foods, plant based diet low in refined sugars and saturated fats.

The American diet of processed foods, high in sugars (around 20%) and fat (around 37%) suppresses immunity.

Did you know that in the US, most people eat more than 126 grams of sugar every day? That’s over three bottles of Coke! Refined sugar is a major immune system depressant.

Research from Columbia University shows sugar destroys the ability of white blood cells to kill germs for up to 5 hours after consumption.

High fat foods contribute to system stagnation, sluggishness, constipation, and poor blood flow. Especially reduce high saturated fats to keep the body free flowing.

2. Eat enzyme-rich food like fresh fruits and vegetables (especially bitter greens).

Food enzymes are basic to immune response. Low enzymes mean we end up with undigested food in our blood.

White blood cells end up being pulled from their jobs to take care of the undigested food.

Eating more enzyme-rich foods helps take care of this unhealthy reaction before it starts.

3. Drink plenty of pure water.

Poor quality water can stress your immune system. City tap water may contain high levels of contaminants like disinfection byproducts, arsenic, nitrates, or even harmful bacteria or parasites.

4. Whole herbs help to create a strong immune system.

Their activity is gentle and long lasting without the harsh effects of antibiotic drugs.

Herbs really work best used preventively, but they offer advantages (like body cleansing and symptom relief) if you’re already sick.

Immune Daily Tonic contains reishi mushroom, astragalus, and black elderberry to support the glands, fight against stress reactions, and give your immune system a natural boost.

Working to create a strong immune system now can save you from many health problems later.

Start first by examining your diet and making necessary changes. Then, consider an expert herbal formula to build your immune system at a deep level.

Some people find they become less prone to colds or flu, and generally feel stronger during high risk seasons.
