Boosting Your Immune System

March 21, 2016

Spring is here and a great time to detox and to get ourselves stronger and healthier. In this month’s newsletter I want to talk about how to strengthen a low immune system. Some examples of lowered state of immune health would be: herpes, shingles, glandular fever (mono), acne rosacea, mouth ulcers, thrush, gum disease, cancer, fungal infections, recurring coughs/throat infections, and auto immune diseases.

There are many reasons why our immune system becomes weak. To mention a few:
– Overuse of pharmaceutical medications especially antibiotics
– Our individual susceptibilities which is defined through genetic disposition thanks to our parents and grandparents
– Shocks and traumas or injuries, big stressful events (eg change, move, break up, loss of love ones etc) we have had throughout our life as often, following traumatic and stressful events, our health deteriorates.

All of these are interconnected. So, for instance, if an individual has history of thyroid problems from both sides of the family, that makes him susceptible to thyroid problems. If your immune system becomes weak or you end up having a traumatic event or injury, your pituitary gland – which is the master gland that governs all your glands – may start to not function properly and the trauma/stress will go straight to the susceptible organ: to your weakest link.

Our immune system is everywhere: Under the skin, inside our bone marrow, in the lymph glands and our spleen. We have thousands of bacteria and viruses in our body and often they live in harmony and equilibrium. However, as soon as we are put in an imbalanced state, inflammation begins as way to correct this and an attempt to retain a state of homeostasis. The imbalance may have been caused by excess toxins which have entered our body through: drugs, pesticides and heavy metal in food, alcohol, injury, smoke, breathing polluted air, and our mental and emotional state.

Now the question is how to strengthen our immune system?
– First it is important to make sure you are well hydrated and eat healthy food and cut out processed food
– Manage gut flora by taking a good probiotic
– Find ways to manage stress (eg, exercise, meditation etc) and finally
– Homeopathy to strengthen you and reduce your individual susceptibilities. If you have never been well since a traumatic stressful event or surgery/injury, homeopathy can help bring balance back to your system.

Homeopathy is a way of treating an illness by looking at a person as a whole (body, mind and emotions) and treating individual susceptibilities, as well as helping the person stimulate their own healing mechanism – similar to all the many systems of healing that have been used over the centuries.

Homeopathic remedies are highly diluted, 100 percent natural, safe and non toxic. They stimulate your own healing mechanism to become stronger, increase your immune response and reduce your susceptibilities.

Homeopathy can be used for babies, children, men women and the elderly. It is also safe to use during pregnancy and breastfeeding.

In great health,
