How to Boost Your Immunity during the Cold and Flu Season.

winter-girl-blowing-snow-cold-busting-tips

Fall is falling and we are rapidly approaching the Winter Blues.  Along with this change we draw nearer to the dreaded Cold and Flu season.   Now is the time to prepare and amp up your immune system to ward off these pesky bugs.

The media and conventional medicine prescribes all kinds of medications to suppress symptoms but little is offered in the way of protecting and building up defense mechanisms to ward off the colds and flu in the first place.  Protecting our systems is much better than trying to fight the cold and flu after they have arrived.  Wouldn’t you agree?

 

What weakens the Immune system?

Your immune system can be compromised in many ways.  One on the biggest contributing factor is Stress.  Feeling stress, mental stress (too much work, work overload), emotional stress (fears –including the fear of getting sick, worries, anxiety) and physical stress (over training from sports or working out).  Other immune suppressing factors include inadequate diet, inadequate sleep and exposure to environmental and chemical toxins.

As we spend more time indoors during the winter months, we reduce the amount of fresh air and sunshine (important source of Vitamin D), which also compromises the immune system.  Also indoor heating has a dehydrating effect on mucous membranes which can have a negative effect on the respiratory system.

Understanding this, what are some tactical things you can do to help yourself?  

Here’s what I suggest:

  1. Get Sunlight. The body producing natural vitamin D from exposure to sunlight.  Try to get at least 15 minutes in the morning light between 10:00 am and Noon.  Sunlight exposure will also keep you awake an energized, thus creating a feeling of happiness and defending against depression.  If you live in an area that gets limited sunlight or is just too cold to expose your skin in the elements, you may consider supplementing with a high quality Vitamin D supplement during the winter months.
  2. Get more sleep. Consider going to bed earlier and limit your exposure to artificial light two hour before bedtime.  This includes, cell phones, computers TV and any artificial light from alarm clocks or TV components.
  3. Eat more good quality fat. This includes coconut oil, MCT oil, and organic pasteurized butter.  These are our hibernating months, where our bodies naturally prefer living off fat instead of carbohydrates.
  4. Don’t eat high sugar carbohydrates. Aim for low sugar and carbohydrate consumption especially in the evening.  Replace cravings with herbal tea or Golden Milk as an alternative.
  5. Go outside. Expose your face to the natural cold elements for two hours every day.  This will naturally keep your fat metabolism running at peak levels.

 

Your Personal Immunity Boosting Kit

Another way to support your immune system and help defend your body from cold and Flu is through the use of Infoceuticals.  Infoceuticals give your body the energetic boost to strengthen your human body field, boost immunity and protect you from those nasty invaders. 

 

Here’s a few recommendations to support you through the cold and flu season:

infoceuticalsSource (ED 1):  We get source energy through the air we breathe and then store in our kidneys.  It is important to get fresh air daily.  When it is not feasible to get outside regularly, Source (ED 1) can help support and store this vital energy and act as a replacement.

CFI (Cold, Flu, Influenza): If you catch a cold or get the flu, start taking 15 drops of CFI a few times a day to get through it quickly.  CFI is one of your best allies once the virus has set in.  Keep a reserve in your medicine cabinet for you never know when you will need it.

Day and Night: These two are used to promote the right metabolism for day and night and help support natural circadian rhythms.  This is especially helpful during the winter months when we are exposed to more artificial light and less natural sunlight.

 

Here’s a Few Infoceuticals That Can Help Avoid Colds and Flu

1. Polarity: Use if you have many distortions in our body-field due to e-smog, air travel and jet lag. It helps maintain a better charge in the body-field.

2. EMF: E-smog (exposure to computers, cell phones, high wires, etc.) generally weaken the immune system and the heart. EMF is beneficial for most people nowadays as our lives center around technology and electronics.

3. Peace helps you calm down after strong mental or physical exercise.  Creates a sense of peace and calm within the body.

4. ESR and Chill May help you mitigate superficial and deep seated emotional stress.  Stress is a main contributing factor in a weakened immune system.

5. Heart Imprinter (ED 2), sometimes combined with Nerve Driver (ED 4), may help with mental stress as well.

6. Female and Male: Regulating sexual hormones support vitality and a positive mood. Female and Male may help with supporting these life forces. (Not recommended if you are on hormone replacement therapies)

The healing power of forgiveness

There is great power to heal in the act of forgiveness. It is one of the highest and strongest vibrations you can create and “be”, yet the act of forgiveness takes a conscious effort on your part and a strength to “let go”. This is not an easy task when we are programed to hold on to this pain so as not to get hurt time and time again. Unfortunately this seed of pain that we hold on to can grow into a noxious weed and cause discord in your body. If left untreated, it will continue to hold you back from growth and complete healing. If you truly want to heal, then you must face these past emotions and let them go.

Flax Seed Nutola

I love Flax Seed Nutola for a gluten free mid day snack or healthy breakfast.  After dehydrating I either break  them into larger bar size pieces or crumble to make a yummy granola with coconut almond milk.  It’s always a treat to top with fresh organic fruit, dried berries and walnuts.  Here’s the recipe to enjoy:

 

Flax Seed Nutola, Sanoviv Recipe Bookphoto (13)

Ingredients:
(6 servings/3 cups)
1 cup whole organic flax seeds
1 cup raw sunflower seeds
6 each Brazil nuts
¼ teaspoon unrefined sea salt
½ tablespoon cinnamon
½ cup dates (8‐10)
1‐2 cups of water
¼ teaspoon Xylitol (optional)
Preparation:
1. Soak the nuts and seeds in clean water and leave them overnight in a
lightly covered glass bowl. The next day, drain them using a colander
and rinse them well.
2. Put half of the nuts and seeds into a food processor and blend until
ground.
3. Crush remaining nuts and seeds and put everything into a large bowl.
4. Mix the sea salt and cinnamon together and add to the mixture.
5. Put dates in a blender with 1‐2 cups of water and xylitol and blend.
This will have the consistency of syrup. Note: Using 2 cups of water
will create less sweetness overall.
6. Coat the entire nuts and seeds mixture with the date syrup, using
your hands to coat the entire mix. This is what distributes the flavor
evenly. Be sure to press handfuls of the mixture (one handful at a
time). This will extract any extra oil from the nuts.
7. Spread the mixture onto dehydrator sheets and dry at 120 degrees
for 24‐48 hours depending on the “crunchiness” you want (longer
times will make it more crunchy and dry).
8. Store in a glass jar or bowl with a tight lid.

Sanioviv…A Sanctuary for Health and Healing

I recently returned from an amazing health and wellness retreat at Sanoviv.  I was truly blessed to spend 5 days in a beautiful toxin free facility, enjoying organic meals and relaxing in an environment that truly aids in building health from a cellular level.   Each morning my eyes woke to an incredible ocean front view. Every room offers a breathtaking view of the coast.  I went to bed to the sound of the waves breaking along the beach and woke to the same scene.  Honestly when I woke, I thought I was still dreaming.  This was the view from my balcony every morning, noon and night…incredible!  I wish I could embed the sound of the ocean with the photo! (Sorry I’m not that tech savvy)

Window view

 

My main intention to visit Sanoviv was to learn about the facility and treatments they use to heal from cancer.  I was curious how similar my treatment protocol would compare to theirs.  I was able to talk with several doctors, therapists and nutritionalists and learn how they implement their programs to heal patients. I was pleasantly

Will eating Fat Make you Fat? The answer may surprise you!

If you have followed all the crazy diet recommendations concerning fat over the decade, they would lead you to believe that Fat is BAD, but is it really?  Is all fat bad or just certain fats?   Do you find yourself going through the grocery aisles, looking for low fat labels, or grabbing low fat, skim milk, cheese, butter (or butter substitutes)?  Are these products really healthier for you?

Here’s a simple solution to cleaning up toxic foods, when organic isn’t available


To help minimize toxic consumption and overload in the foods you eat, it is best to pur
chase organic produce as much as possible. Sometimes, however, it is not easily accessible. If you live in an area (like me) that organic food is not readily available, here’s a simple solution that you can do. Wash your fruits, vegetables, eggs and meats in a “Clorox Bath”. It is important to use Clorox only. Other brands will not work!!!  Clorox is NOT the same as chlorine (chemical disinfectant added in drinking water). Actually, the active ingredient in Clorox is sodium hypochlorite. This ingredient breaks down into salt and water. It is also important to note that I am talking about the “original” Clorox.
