Spring is the perfect time to boost your immune system.
Many people have no idea how to keep their immune system strong. In fact some people don’t even know they have an immune system, let alone how to look after it. At least 80% of our immune system resides in the gut. The gut is also called the second brain, because it contains just as many neurotransmitters as our grey matter!
Your immune system is like your own personal guard dog. You rely on its intelligence to kill the baddies and look after the good bacteria. If you have recently taken antibiotics you have just poisoned your good bacteria along with the bad ones and your neurotransmitters are ringing the alarm bells. So what to do?
Here are some ideas to boost your immune system in minimal time:
5 Colloidal Iodine drops daily on the skin or drink it in water.
Iodine is to your body like gold is to your bank account. It gives you energy, kills bacteria, looks after your hormones and boosts the immune system. Your thyroid needs iodine too. Every 17 minutes your entire blood volume has been filtered for viruses and bacteria by this gland. Give it to your babies and children as well. Children can’t concentrate or think clearly when they are iodine deficient. Lack of iodine causes mental retardation. Retails for $34.
I love it when history comes alive. Swedish Bitters is one of my all time favourite herbal tinctures. I always have a big bottle handy. Bouts of gastro by-pass our house for this reason. It’s too scared to come near us. Swedish bitters is a wonder tonic that heals most ailments you may be suffering from. It was originally formulated in the 1500’s and then it went into obscurity only to be re-discovered by Dr Claus Samst who was a Swedish medic in the 1800’s. He used it daily and lived till he was 104 years old, when he died after falling off his horse!
