Immune Building and Flu And Cold Fighters
Why do we experience these symptoms when our weather has dramatic swings from cold, to mild to sweltering heat?
A simplification of the reasons is that bacteria, viruses and parasites love the dramatic changes in body temperature. A cauldron environment is created that allows these germs to breed in ever increasing numbers, with heat being the rich ground to fester in and then the dramatic drops in temperature that assist in their release within our bodies. If our immune system is compromised through stress, emotional overload, dramatic events, worry or lack of nutrition, these germs can strike at anytime of the year without warning.
Often we forget that our bodies are not machines that can operate indefinitely on poor fuel and high levels of stress. We push until we reach the breaking point and then succumb to Flu, Colds, Immune deficiency and in some cases even more serious diseases.
It is our responsibility to ensure that these beautifully mysterious bodies of ours are feed the right fuels, exercised regularly and balanced by what ever modality we choose e.g. Yoga, meditation, as well as to undergo detox programs. We do know that we are living in times of extreme stress and based on this should understand and take the time to nurture our bodies. To ensure strong immune systems are created, we need to eat healthy living foods, hydrate our bodies properly, partake in stress release exercises, and clean up our systems through detox methods.
A good solution for this niggling phase of illness is to boost one’s immune system with natural cold remedies which do not need a prescription, and have far less side effects than antibiotics. (Immune Food Kits, LG/LA Kits-available from Herba Farmacy) The next is to ensure that you clean out the entire body of any unwanted bacteria/virus/parasite that has brought about this weakened immune system. These detoxes would be Herbal Parasite Cleanse, Bowel Cleanse, Mop-up Cleanse, Kidney Cleanse and lastly Liver cleanse. By detoxing at least once a year, you are ensuring your body has a fighting chance to ward off any attacks as the seasons and weather fluctuates.
Why Detox? What will this do to assist your body? A closer look at how your body functions will reveal that if your gut and bowel are blocked or impacted with old material, you disable the mucus membranes which allow the absorption of the nutrients to occur. No matter what you drink, eat or what supplements you take they will struggle to be absorbed into the body, normally resulting in some form of anemia, and thus opening your body to attack.
What must be understood is that we live in times where most of our food, water and air are polluted in some way. The toxic levels we are dealing with today are so high that our bodies struggle to function, never mind heal itself. We need to clear out all unwanted toxins and discordant energy so that our bodies can make use of the energy available to heal and function at its highest level.
Then lastly, but probably the most important part of healing and ensuring our bodies remain strong, healthy and vibrant is our Ph Levels and Cellular water levels.
Research across the world has revealed, a long time ago, that if our bodies Ph level is balanced, that is not too acidic and not too alkaline, we will remain healthy and have no issues with dis-ease in our bodies. Why is this? Because a balanced Ph level in the body cannot feed parasites and dis-ease. Systems that are too acidic or too alkaline are breeding grounds for all kinds of disorders. Good examples are - cancer: It CANNOT survive in an alkaline body, joints and arthritis problems survive and flourish in an acidic body. So how do we balance our Ph levels?
Firstly, we must follow a lifestyle change into consuming live foods rich in nutrients, fiber enriched products, products that are not processed and treated with toxins and cut out all junk food from our diets. The understanding must be that “Whatever I consume must feed my body, if it has no nutritional value I will not consume it”. Your body is just like a vehicle that needs fuel. If you use the wrong fuel the vehicle will not perform at its optimum level and will eventually give in and stop working.
The second, and probably the most unknown to us, is the cellular water in our bodies. Our bodies are made up of 75% water and all the cells of our organs are replaced every 7 years. So logic follows that if we have stagnant water in our bodies, we have a breeding ground for all kinds of dis-ease. The entire body’s cellular water is changed every 3 weeks, so if we consume Living Water, rich in nutrients and un-treated, we are feeding our foundation cells. The basic structures of our bodies are being cleaned, washed out and replaced by fresh vibrant water. By doing this we place our systems into a completely different category. The body is detoxed by yearly regimes, the cells are feed by Living Water and now we can feel the vibrancy of the energy flowing through us, as our Ph levels are balanced, the cells are alive; our fuel is nourishing every part of us.
It may seem a huge task to accomplish, but really it is so simple and basic that most of us will not believe such simple things can change our whole body structure and health levels.
