Natural approach to immune health

Bug Killing and Detoxification:

I call this Doug's list. A Lyme and co-infection sufferer, he researched natural food and supplements that help the body rid itself of overburdening microbes, promote the immune system and create healthy balance.

Here is his list:

  • Coconut oil: Certified organic extra virgin coconut oil: inside and out!
    Raw honey:
  • Raw local honey, if possible.
  • Shilajit from the Himalayas: Look this one up. Ancient Aryuvedic medicine.
  • Maca root Powder: Info at WebMD.
  • Himalayan Salt: Info at LiveStrong.
  • Apple cider vinegar: As usual, Mercola does an exhaustive study on anything he delves into.
  • Bentinite Clay: Used by mixing the clay in water, it is a colon detoxifier, and much more.
  • Organic Sulfur: Again, Mercola has done extensive research: He describes MSM, an organic form of Sulfur that reduces chronic pain, detoxifies, and repairs oxidative damage to cells.
  • Bee Pollen: Anti-inflammatory and immune booster. You can go to Mercola again, for in depth research on bee pollen.

To this list I add dry brushing of the skin with a long handles natural brush to stimulate cleansing of the lymph system, green tea, sauna, jacuzzi and epsom salt baths.

Stress reduction is key, so take your pick: meditation, biofeedback (now available through smart phone apps!), dancing (even gently), laughing!

In this YouTube video Robert Rivest gives laugh lessons! Have a laugh on the buggers! You deserve a good laugh!
