Infectious diseases are on the rise and many are naturally wondering why? Mainstream dogma recommends the same old big pharma fantasies. A far safer and more effective solution for preventing infectious diseases is a well-functioning immune system. Below are 7 simple steps you can take to boost your overall health, vastly reduce your risk of getting sick, and ensure rapid recovery if you do.
Step #1: Consume a Whole Foods Based Diet
Consuming a wholefoods based diet will strengthen your immune system so that it can better prevent and clear viruses. For optimal immunity, consume a high-fiber, oil-free diet and include plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables. Omega-3 fatty acids are also beneficial and plant-based sources include coconut, walnuts, seeds, leafy greens, and sea vegetables. Also, be sure to consume probiotic-rich foods (e.g. non-dairy yogurt, kefir, sauerkraut, kombucha, fermented veggies) regularly, because of the beneficial bacteria in them help to support gut health and 80% of immunity starts in the gut.
Step #2: Eliminate Animal Products
Animal products harm your immune system because they are loaded with bacteria, carcinogens (cancer-causing substances), hormones, and other toxins that build-up in your body when you consume them. Most conventionally farmed animal products also contain antibiotics, which kill off the beneficial bacteria that are required for strong immunity. A plant-based diet, on the other hand, has been found to improve gut microbiome and support immunity. In fact, a recent study published in the Frontiers in Immunology journal found switching to a plant-based diet led to significant changes in immune parameters in just three months.
Step #3: Live a Healthy Lifestyle
A healthy lifestyle is your best defense against infectious and chronic diseases. In addition to the above dietary recommendations, you should exercise regularly, and be sure to include strength building, cardiovascular, and stretching-based exercises. It’s also imperative that you reduce stress and you can do so by practicing yoga, meditating, deep breathing, journaling, spending time in nature, taking a hot bath, learning to say no, and managing your time wisely. Finally, establish a regular sleep schedule and go to bed as early as possible, in a cool, dark, quiet, and electronic-free environment.
Step #4: Take Antiviral Herbs
Herbs offer a safe, non-toxic, and natural way to boost your immunity and ward off infectious diseases. Echinacea, Astragalus root, licorice root, garlic bulb extract, lomatium, and grapefruit seed extract are a few examples of antiviral herbs that support and strengthen the immune system. Adrenal DMG contains all of the above herbs as well as bovine sourced adrenal cortex. The adrenal cortex helps to enhance adrenal gland health which is beneficial because the hormones released by the adrenal glands play an integral role in regulating your immune system.
Step #5: Take Medicinal Mushrooms
Medicinal mushrooms have been prized for thousands of years for their powerful medicinal properties. They contain all-natural immune system boosters called alpha and beta-glucans, and consuming them activates multiple immune effector cells, including lymphocytes, macrophages, and natural killer cells. The mushrooms Basidiomycota Agaricus blaz ei Murill (AbM), Hericium erinaceus (HE), and Grifola frondosa (GF) have been shown to have antimicrobial properties and to help protect against viral, bacterial and parasitic infections. Preliminary research suggests these mushrooms may also have a therapeutic effect against the cytokine storm, pneumonia superinfection and severe lung inflammation that often complicates COVID‐19 infections.
Step #6: Take DIM and I3C
DIM and I3C are natural compounds found in cruciferous vegetables, and clinical studies have confirmed that they have powerful immune-boosting and chemopreventive (cancer-fighting) properties. Studies on mice found that DIM helps inhibit the growth and proliferation of viruses, and also helps clear viruses out of the body. One study found that a 10 micromolar dose of DIM actually doubled the number of white blood cells, which help the body fight infections by seeking out and destroying viruses.
