Strong Immune System Strategies

Are you prepared for this autumn and winter’s Battle of the Immune System versus Infectious Bugs? You know and have experienced the carnage. So much time, energy and money has been spent on medical bills, medications, supplements and gadgets plus the loss of time at work or school. Being sick takes a great toll on the body mentally, emotionally, physically, relationally and financially. September is the perfect month to PREPARE your body for optimal Health and Wellness! 
 
The immune system is incredibly complex and fascinating, consisting of the thymus (produces T-cells), bone marrow (produces white blood cells), spleen (filters the blood, recycles red blood cells, stores white blood cells), tonsils, (traps germs and produces antibodies to kill them), lymphatic system (transports white blood cells all over the body and removes toxins and waste), adenoids, (produces antibodies to kill germs), appendix (protects good bacteria) and white blood cells. White blood cells and natural killer cells are part of the innate immune system, the focus of this article.
 
Spend some time, energy and money on supporting these organs and cells this fall and winter. You will be amazed! We hear it all the time in the store and with our clients. Building the innate immune system, gently cleansing the body, stimulating the body’s vital force and offering direct aids as needed will allow you and your family to enjoy this autumn and winter (ski season - hooray!)
 
Below is a simple protocol that will increase the effectiveness of the immune system, increase the body’s energy, cleanse the small and large intestine, improve the good bacteria in the colon and prepare you in the moment when a microbial infection begins to set in.

WHAT IS IMMUNE STIMULATOR?
Immune Stimulator is a nonspecific immune booster increasing white blood cell count, enhancing antibody activity and improving white blood cell function. This combination of beta glucans, arabinogalactans, colostrum, cordyceps, reishi mushrooms and maiitake mushrooms helps the body to kill viruses, bacteria, fungus and cancer cells. Beta glucans (200 mg per capsule) are polysaccarides found in the cell walls of fungi and have been shown in studies to improve the function of macrophages and natural killer cells. Colostrum or the “First Milk” of cows is full of antibodies, immune factors, nutrients, fat, protein, good bacteria and white blood cells to support our immune systems. Immune Stimulator is used for prevention, mild colds and severe infections.
 
 
WHAT IS TRIGGER IMMUNE?
Trigger Immune is a Traditional Chinese Medicine formula for increasing the effectiveness of a weakened immune system, overcoming anemia and generalized body weakness and balances the body’s meridians or electrical system. It is a blood and energy tonic that helps people who is fatigued or run-down. The main ingredient is Astragalus, which is excellent for the immune system and the adrenals glands. The second ingredient is ginseng. This can be used for prevention, energy, recovery from chemotherapy and with colds or flu.
 
 
WHAT IS ULTIMATE ECHINACCEA?
Echinacea roots have the ability to stimulate the innate immune system in order to fight infections, even very serious infections. This product combines the roots of three different Echinacea plants. Many recent studies have been conducted on the effectiveness of Echinacea. And traditional naturopaths and herbalists have used this herb over the past century. It is great for prevention, colds, flu, strep throat tonsillitis, snakebites, bee stings and insect bites.
