Immune System & Immune Health

0-555360519-immune1

The immune system does not provide immunity. It is the body’s defense system. A healthy immune system protects the body from infection caused by bacteria, fungi and parasites. If these organisms penetrate the body, then the immune system destroys them.

There are several types of immune cells-and they behave in very interesting ways. Some are designed to attack all invading organisms; others are designed to attach specific types of organisms. Some are designed to physically attack, while others release chemicals designed to destroy.

Types of Immune Diseases and Disorders

There are many different types of immune diseases and disorders. The most common are:

  • Allergies
  • Autoimmune diseases
  • Immune complex diseases
  • Immune deficiency disorders

Allergies
Allergies are essentially the body “crying wolf,” when an otherwise harmless substance penetrates the body and the body, in turn, decides it’s something that needs to be destroyed.

Autoimmune diseases
There are times when the immune system’s recognition system breaks down, causing healthy cells and tissue to be destroyed. The reason why these diseases happen is unknown, although a combination of things are suspected, including environmental exposure, sunlight exposure, viruses, hormonal imbalance and certain drugs.

Immune complex diseases
Usually immune complexes are rapidly eliminated from the body. When they aren’t, they become trapped in organ tissue, creating inflammation and tissue damage. Examples of immune complex diseases are Malaria and viral hepatitis.

Immune deficiency disorders
Immune deficiency disorders happen when the immune system is missing one or more of its vital parts. They are usually the result of another disease or disorder. For example: AIDS is an immune deficiency disorder cause by HIV.

Healing the Immune System

Beware of using commercial super market brand household cleaning supplies, as they can compromise the immune system. If you use these harsh chemicals, make sure you open up all the windows in your home. If you have an ozone or oxygen machine, you’d be wise to run it while cleaning your home.

Reputable Earth-friendly household cleaning supply brands include:

  • Ecos
  • Dr. Bronners
  • Ecover
  • Seventh Generation
  • Bon Ami, and
  • Earth Friendly Products

These Earth-friendly brands can be purchased at good health food stores such as Whole Foods Market, Trader Joe’s, Erewon, Wild Oats, and Nature Mart.

There are many immune-boosting herbs and plants that one can consume to help to fortify the immune system, such as:

  • Echinacea
  • Goldenseal
  • Astragalus
  • Sarsaparilla
  • Lomatium
  • Osha
  • St. John’s Wort

Crystals are incredibly helpful in boosting the immune system. Our favorites are:

  • Smithsonite
  • Elbaite
  • Andusalite
  • Moss Agate
  • Brown Jasper
  • Lapis Lazuli
  • Sodalite

Crystal elixirs are made by adding stones/crystals to distilled water sat in sunlight for a minimum of 24 hours. The properties of the crystals are imbued in the memory of the water. Elixirs work at the cellular and subtle levels of existence.

Essential oils can also support the immune system, especially frankincense and Myrrh. They can be added to a diffuser or added to bath water.

Dietary Intervention

You can physically boost, strengthen and invigorate the so-called immune system by consuming a diet rich or high in alkaline foods, mainly green cruciferous vegetables.

Meat can lower immunity because every time you eat meat you are allowing serious foreign invaders (particles) into your body. This is why your defense cells can increase after eating meat and dairy products.

Taking Vitamin C (ascorbic acid), herbs of Echinacea and Goldenseal, and other immune boosting substances only address the physical immune or defense system.

    Q: While I know by experience that herbs can have a healing effect, You say that clearly, "Sarcoidosis affects the glands", the inner and outer skin, and the lymphatic system. Sarcoidosis is a degenerative disease, and is therefore due to improper diet. You don't mention at any stage that it is an auto immune disease. To say that diet alone can cause one's immune system to attack the body, and major organs (which you don't mention anywhere) seems very simplistic. I may be wrong, but I hope you are not just raising hopes for all the sufferers out there. My sister has sarcoidosis.

    A:

    Beloved, why would I want to in futile and falsely raise innocent people's hopes and create bad karma for myself? I'm not one of the unscrupulous Christian ministers who do such, Beloved. I'm a wise natural healer. I have no incentive in raising false hopes. Life is not joke nor is suffering! Sarcoidoisis is a PREVENTABLE and REVERSIBLE disease which means it is diet related. A disease is preventable because eating wrong foods can be prevented. A disease is reversible because poor diet is reversible. Research the medical term "degenerative disease" and you'll understand where I'm coming from. I'm not one to embrace auto-immune disease because when the body turns on itself that's not natural. The person did something to make their body attack itself. People invite disease, Ma'am via WRONG DIET, WRONG THOUGHTS, WRONG ACTIONS, etc. If she was born with sarcoidosis, she picked up in life, a life that she led pursuant to her own free will. I say again: YOU CAN heal from any disease! If you believe you can, you can. If you believe you can't, you can't! It IS that simple! Jesus (not that you may be a Christian, I'm just quoting) stated: If thou canst belive, all things are possible to him that believeth!

    Q: My cat is currently having a hypersensitive reaction to canned food that I purchased from Whole Foods. It contained fish and I think it has upset my cat's stomach. Will your Cat and Dog Immune Booster Formula help stabilize his upset stomach? He responds well to the antibiotic from the vet however if I can give him something all natural to help his entire immune system then he and I won't have to go through the stress of going to the vet.

    A:

    I say give your cat something natural to stablize the upset stomach. Immune Booster will greatly help your cat. Or, you could give your cat Electric Greens Cell Food (open up a few capsules) and the alkalinity from this formula will serve as an antacid.

    Q: Good Day to you. July 07, I was diagnosed with having the auto-immune disease Myasthenia Gravis. Since then I have had several hospital stays, including a surgery to remove my Thymus Gland...(beleif that this was one cause)and taking many medications, one of which suppresses my immune system, the others include steroids which have terrible side effects...etc. My latest hospital stay, I was placed on the vent and intubated, because of the Myasthenia and an infection that my body couldn't fight off (suppressed immune system) that further complicated the MG restricting my respiratory system. That was a truly scary and painful experience. I am only 32 and I have been searching for a more natural approach to eradicating this Dis-Ease of the body which they say there is no cure. My thoughts are, they are not looking for cures...if they did, that would mean the pharmaceutical companies no longer have reason to continue to poison and make dependent on them those whom they make the medications...which eventually cause other problems...meaning they don't make money if cures are found. The continuous pill taking and side effects are causing more problems than the original diagnosis. Please let me know if any of your products are a possible answer to my prayers. I am desperately seeking...in addition to keeping the faith and staying strong in prayer, a more natural approach to dealing with MG and taking care of my body, the temple of which the creator has kept alive in spite of this potentially dangerous ailment. Thank you in advance for your time.

    A:

    You didn't have to have your thymus gland removed. This gland is the seat of the immune system so the doctors removed your natural defense and then gave you toxins which are really exacerbating your situation. I recommend that you perform the FULL BODY DETOX and after performing, take a daily regimen of RAINFOREST TONIC, IMMUNE BOOSTER EXTRACT, KHEMETIAN GOLD, ACTIVATED CHARCOAL and ELECTRIC GREENS CELL FOOD. You can overcome your present health crisis! Just stay strong, focused (on your healing), and POSITIVE! Every problem including with health is an opportunity!!!!!!

    Q: I was wondering if either the Ant-Viral formula or Immune Support formulas would adversely affect beneficial flora and is it recommended to take probiotics while taking either of these formulas. Also, how would you rate the taste of the Anti-Viral tea? Is it absolutely awful with those listed ingredients or is there any stevia added?

    A:

    None of our products (nor anything natural) will adversely affect beneficial flora in the body. You do not have to take probiotics while taking any of our formulas. In re the taste of our teas, they are pretty well-tasting considering we use Stevia in all of our teas. Hey, try it yourself and see for yourself.

    Q: Please tell me which products will help my 11 yr old son eliminate or aid in his healing of this horrible disease (Allergic Fungal Sinusitis). He was taking allergy shots once a week for a year. He is allergic to everything...grass, trees; dustmites, soy, wheat, dairy, eggs. He now drinks rice milk and I order food online at ener_g foods such as breads, cookies etc that are made without all the things he is allergic to. I want to boost his immune system to help fight this disease. He is on a strict diet and I would love you input on how to help him.

    A:

    Clearly he's toxic! Clean his body out and the problem will go away. Try CHILDREN DETOX (liquid extracts) . Let him drink warm water and lemon juice (from fresh squeezed lemon) every day. Let him drink herbal tea of Mullein leaf and/or Eucalyptus. When he is bathing, drop in 6-8 drops of essential oil of Eucalyptus per bath and add 1 box of sea salt to every bath. Let him soak for 45 minutes or so. He can heal from this problem!

However, I just did some research online and wanted to know what your take on a warning I found online. Caution: Irish Moss has some blood thinning properties, So people taking anti-coagulating medications should avoid using it. Pregnant or breast-feeding patients should avoid it. Infants shouldn't be given Irish moss because it may suppress the immune system. Patients with underlying bleeding disorders or hypotension should use Irish moss with caution. Please Advise?

    Q: Can you tell me what to give my 5 year old twins daughters and 3 year old son to help support their immune system?

Much obliged! Greatly!

    A:

    I would say to put your children on the RAINFOREST TONIC TEA, letting them drink one cup per day. The VITAMIN C FORMULA is something I would also suggest for your children's immune system as well. Peace and Love! I appreciate you very much, Beloved!

    Q: I have a 7 month old baby girl name Neffera. I breast fed her for about 4 1/2 months. I have been giving her soy infant formula and really do not feel right about it. I also have been giving her the Gerber organic green beans, peas, applesauce, ect. She has a lot of congestion and mucus like I have never seen before ever in a baby. I am not sure what has caused all of this mucus, but I want to strengthen her immune system and feed her better. What do you suggest?

    A:

    Wow, Beloved! I'll tell you what caused all that mucus: the soy-based infant formula which is crap!!!! Plus, those baby foods. Gerber's is CRAP!!!!! You must undo the damage you unintentionally done via ignorance. Please read our article on "ALTERNATIVE INFANT FORMULA MILK" and learn to make alternative formulas for your baby. You must also start making your own baby food. You must do these things to reverse the serious harm you've done to your baby. All wrong can be righted by doing the right thing. I would highly, highly, highly recommend you schedule a 1-hour health consultation (only $100) a.s.a.p. There's just so much that needs to be explained to you so that child can make a speedy recovery. Time here won't allow it, so a consultation is best!
