The Immune System


Immune weaknesses
Infection
Viral - chronic Infection
Acute Infection
Fungal Infection

A growing body of research is demonstrating that fear, worry, doubt, self-pity, anger and other "negative" emotions paralyze the immune system, while love, joy, faith, hope and trust tend to stimulate it. There is even a name for this new field of study: psycho-neuro-immunology. This is the study of the effect of the mind on the immune system through the nervous system.





Immune Weaknesses
Indications

Constant fatigue - Pale complexion - Cold limbs
Frequent colds and/or other infections

This formula enhances vital energy and immune function, increasing white blood cell production and platelet count.
It is very helpful in recovering from chemotherapy and can also be taken during chemotherapy to strengthen the system to resist toxic effects from chemo.
 
 
 
Immune Stimulator
 
Designed to promote macrophage activity in your body, leading to a chain reaction of immune activity, which will strengthen your entire system against enemy attack. Should be a valuable supplement for helping the body overcome cancers, heart disease, AIDS, gastrointestinal conditions and any other immune challenge, including the common cold.
Since the molecule of beta-glucan is too large to be readily absorbed into the bloodstream, it has to go beyond the stomach to the small intestines, then to the lymphatic system.
It is important to always take this product on an empty stomach.

Super Antioxidant

  Antioxidants can help repair and prevent damage to cells and genetic material. Super Antioxidant has vitamin E tocorrienols, lycopene, alpha lipoic acid, rose hips, milk thistle and turmeric.
Like vitamins A and D, vitamin E tocopherol is a fat-soluble vitamin. Vitamin E tocorrienols are naturally derived from palm oil, rice bran and wheat germ oil. Their unique molecular makeup allows them to scavenge free radicals within circulating lipoproteins even more efficiently than vitamin E tocopherols.
 
 
 
Super Orac
  Super ORAC supplement combines ingredients known to quench free radicals, including decaffeinated green tea leaves, mangosteen pericarp extract, turmeric root, quercetin, resveratrol, apple extract, acai berry concentrate and selenium.

Ultimate Echinacea

 
Potent immune system stimulant and lymphatic cleanser.
The various species of Echinacea are regularly shown in animal and human clinical studies to be effective immuno-stimulants.
This liquid extract combines three species: Echinacea purpurea, Echinacea pallida and Echinacea angustifolia.
These herbs directly stimulate the immune system to fight bacteria, viruses, fungi and tumor growth.
With the overuse of antibiotics and the increasing immunity of microbes to modern medications, this Echinacea blend provides an alternative for treating illnesses.
 
 
Olive Leaf (caps) - Olive Leaf (liquid)
 
Olive Leaf
 
What Professionals Are Saying: Dr. James R. Privitera, M.D., began using Olive Leaf Extract early in 1995.
"We continually hear from patients about new and unexpected benefits. Although we do not have long term perspectives as yet, preliminary clinical results are very positive."
Dr. Phil Selinsky, at the Institute for Holistic Studies in Santa Barbara reports: "Some patients have told me that Olive Leaf Extract took down their dental infections in a matter of hours! The response is quite impressive."
Biochemist Arnold Takemoto: "it sure has power; particularly against viruses that are more tenacious!" "It fills a hole that we haven't been able to fill before. It gives us a new, effective tool."





Viral - Chronic Infection

Medical diagnosis of bacterial infection
(herpes, Epstein-Barr virus, etc.)

Elderberry D3fense

  More and more research shows that in addition to supporting bone health, vitamin D is critical to the immune system. It's one of the reasons why the cloudy winter months (when people receive little sun exposure) are the hardest months for the immune system.
Elderberry D3fense combines the benefits of elderberry fruit and vitamin D3 with other herbs that help the immune system to provide you year-round immune-system support. It contains a healthy dose of vitamin D3, which mounting research indicates strengthens the immune system, along with key ingredients elderberry fruit extract and Echinacea purpurea.

This is a great daily probiotic for adults and children of all ages, particularly females because it protects against unwanted invaders that cause health concerns, especially in the urinogenital tract.

The immune system's job is beautifully orchestrated to determine what is "self"' and what is "not self" and to get rid of anything that is "not self" by destroying or eliminating that "not self' thing.

Before our modern society started monkeying around with our health and environment, immune disorders were relatively uncommon. In recent years the incidences of immune disorders have risen at alarming rates, with new conditions raising their ugly heads all the time.
In order to turn the tide and stop the onslaught, we need to understand what we are doing to ourselves, and our environment - that may be major contributors to these increases in autoimmune disorders.

We also need to know what we can do to prevent further health damage, and how to recapture our health through diet, life style changes, and natural health supplements.

A growing body of research is demonstrating that fear, worry, doubt, self-pity, anger and other "negative" emotions paralyze the immune system, while love, joy, faith, hope and trust tend to stimulate it. There is even a name for this new field of study: psycho-neuro-immunology. This is the study of the effect of the mind on the immune system through the nervous system.

The immune system cannot be rebuilt by taking a few herbs or supplements while continuing to eat white flour, refined sugar, excessive quantities of meat and dairy products, food additives, preservatives, alcohol, soft drinks and so forth.

In all cases of degenerative illness the body needs to be built up with wholesome food even more than it needs to be cleansed. Putting anyone in a severely weakened state on a heavy cleanse is a mistake. Conditions of excess require cleansing, but conditions of deficiency or weakness require building.
