How to Jumpstart - Or Kill - Your Immune System

exercise.jpeg

This time of year, germs seem to be everywhere. Whether it's the common cold, the flu, a stomach bug, a mystery respiratory virus, or something much, much worse, it seems like coming down with some sort of sickness is inevitable. It doesn't have to be.

Below are two lists: one containing the best things you can do to preserve and promote a healthy immune system, and another containing the worst things.

Beneath that, we have a list of things around the house that are most likely to be germ hot-spots, and things you'll want to clean very, very well.

BEST:

  • Probiotics: gut health comprises 80% of the immune system. Keep the gut healthy, and the immune system will be, too!
  • Exercise: this boosts white blood cell activity to fight off infection.
  • Weight Management: make it a goal to obtain and maintain a healthy weight. Obesity cripples the immune system and several other processes and organs in the body.
  • Diet: eat organic whole food - mainly fruits and vegetables. These are high in antioxidants and nutrients the body needs to support healthy immune function.
  • Supplement: some of the best natural, herbal supplements to support a healthy immune system include ionic silver, elderberry, echinacea, vitamin C, and garlic, though there are many, many more!
  • Water: stay hydrated and drink half your body weight in water daily. This will allow the body to better flush out toxins.

WORST:

  • Smoking: this inhibits immune function and can leave the body more susceptible to disease.
  • Alcohol: prevents the body from absorbing nutrients necessary to proper immune health. As a result, this causes the immune system to be sluggish in response to infection.
  • Stress: it's no secret that stress damages the body. The immune system is no exception. Stress reduces immune response, weakens white blood cells, and causes inflammation. Relaxation techniques and calming herbs can help relieve tension.
  • Sugar: it's no secret sugar is bad for you. Aside from meeting all the requirements of being an addictive drug, sugar also prevents white blood cells from killing germs and bad bacteria.
  • Processed Foods & Sodas: the chemicals, preservatives, and pesticides used in the growing and processing of these foods are toxic on the entire body, not just the immune system. Combine this with sugar and you can say goodbye to your immune system.
  •  Prescription Medications: both prescribed and over-the-counter medications are very foreign and toxic to the body. They weaken the body rather than heal, and prolonged use of antibiotics can have severe damage on the immune system.

THE TOP GERM HOT SPOTS:

  • The Kitchen Sink
  • Kitchen Washrags/Sponges
  • Children's Toy
  • Telephones
  • Keyboards/Remote Controls
  • Toothbrushes
  • Public Soap Dispensers
  • Vacuum Cleaner

The best, most effective cleaners for problems such as  these are GNLD's Green, and Nature's Sunshine's Silver Shield. Both can be diluted and sprayed on objects, surfaces, and even pets! They're gentle and extraordinarily safe. We carry both!

Silver Sol

SILVER SOLsilver Throughout history, silver has been used to purify water and fight colds and flu all across the world.

A recent technology of silver called Sol or Aquasol has been shown to be several times more effective than colloidal and ionic silver products. Its cellular formation is super-charged to spread throughout the body at an exponential rate to heal the body faster.

Below are historical uses for Silver and recommended dosages. Note: this is NOT a prescription.

For Lyme Disease, Pneumonia, Malaria, MRSA, Staph, AIDS, HIV, etc: Blast the infection away by taking an entire bottle of silver for four days. After this, reduce the amount to half a bottle (four tablespoons) for four days. Then reduce the amount to two tablespoons. Continue at this amount until the symptoms are gone.

Aches/Pains: Take one teaspoon of silver internally three times daily.

Athlete’s Foot: Spray Silver Sol liquid on socks or directly on foot. Apply Silver Sol gel between the toes.

Autism: (Note: Silver does not cure autism, but greatly improves symptoms. Children with Autism who take Silver have been shown to be less irritated or agitated, learn better, and ask more intellectual questions.) Children under seventy-five pounds can take one teaspoon morning and night. Children over seventy-five pounds should take two teaspoons twice daily.

Bad Breath: Swishing Silver around in the mouth for six minutes in the morning and the evening will eliminate odor-causing bacteria. For bad breath caused by sinus infections, spray Silver liquid in the nose four times a day.

Bladder Infection: Take two tablespoons of Silver every hour for the first two days. After that, continue on a program of two tablespoons twice daily for two weeks.

Blood Cleansing: For acute blood cleansing, take one ounce an hour for four hours. For serious conditions, take a four ounce bottle a day for four days, then follow with a maintenance dose of two tablespoons in the morning and evening. For daily blood cleansing, take two teaspoons one to three times daily.

Brain Cleansing: Inhale Silver from a nebulizer for thirty minutes daily, and take two teaspoons of Silver twice daily. To help it pass through the blood brain barrier more easily, eliminate all white sugar from your diet.

Cataracts: Spray two or three drops of liquid Silver in the eyes one to four times daily. Also drink two teaspoons twice daily. Do this for two weeks, or until the problem is remedied.

Cold/Flu Prevention: Drink one teaspoon twice a day.

Conjunctivitis (Pink Eye): Use two or three drops of silver liquid in the eye one to four times a day, and drink two teaspoons twice a day to remedy the issue. This will usually clear up the infection in one to three days.

Diaper Rash: Instead of store-bought creams, use Silver Sol gel. The redness and pain will be remedied in as little as five minutes, and the source of the issue will be eliminated in roughly two hours.

Ear Infections: Pour five drops of Silver liquid in the ear canal. Allow to sit for twelve minutes. Repeat this process in each ear, every twelve hours. You may also want to drink two teaspoons of Silver and take Vitamin C.

Household Disinfectant: Safe and gentle enough to be sprayed on fruits and vegetables to fight bacteria, the liquid can be used to clean toys, surfaces, phones, doorknobs, bathtubs, toilets, etc… Spray the solution and let sit for ten minutes before wiping off.

Leprosy: Even the worst of leprosy wounds can be healed by taking two teaspoons of liquid Silver three times a day, and applying Silver gel topically three times daily. Lepers using Silver have been able to bring their disease under control in two days.

Lupus: Many people have been able to improve their condition by drinking one teaspoons three times daily. It can also be applied topically to rashes that commonly accompany Lupus. This program should also be used with Acidophilus, antioxidants, COQ-10, and an intestinal cleanse.

Open Wounds (Abscesses, Bedsores): Rinse with Silver Sol liquid, then soak the bandage (if it requires one) in the liquid or gel and tape it over the wound. For small wounds, put a drop of Silver liquid on a Band-Aid. For large wounds, spray the area with Silver Sol liquid one to four times a day.

Parkinson’s Disease: By taking two teaspoons of Silver Sol twice daily, and taking MSM powder twice as well, you can reduce the inflammation and toxicity of the brain. Improvement can be seen within the first two weeks, and should continue over the next two months.

Respiratory Issues (Asthma, Bronchitis): To soothe inflammation inhale from a nebulizer fifteen minutes daily. One teaspoon of Silver Sol liquid should be taken twice daily. For Bronchitis, take two teaspoons twice daily.

Skin Conditions (Acne, Age Spots, Boils, Bruises, Burns, Chafing, Dry Skin, Itching/Scaling, Keratosis, Psoriasis, Scars, & Stretch Marks): Apply silver sol liquid or gel one to five times daily. In the case of burns (or sunburns) you may wish to spray the gel or liquid on rather than rub it in.

Sore Throat/Tonsillitis: Rinse your mouth with one ounce of Silver liquid for one minute. Swallow when through. This will kill the bacteria at the back of the throat.

Water Purification: To purify an eight ounce glass of water, pour four drops of liquid Silver Sol and let sit for two minutes. This will even purify river water. Add thirty-two ounces of silver to a fifty-five gallon container to purify your water for at least four years.

Wound Healing: Apply Silver gel to the wound four times daily. You may also drink two teaspoons twice daily to help speed the process.

Yeast: Drink two teaspoons of Silver twice daily for two weeks, or until the symptoms disappear. You may also apply the gel topically twice daily. Silver can destroy yeast in less than ten minutes.

Fight the Mystery Virus, Colds, & Flu Naturally!

sick.jpeg

It's early September again. Temperatures will soon be dropping, and with this drop comes - you've guessed it! - colds, flu, viruses, and more. Already there's a sickness dubbed "the mystery virus" documented in ten states and sweeping the nation quickly. Its symptoms include normal cold signs, such as sneezing, sniffling, runny or stuffy nose, coughing, etc., but the real kicker is the wheezing. People and children, particularly, with asthma can have a difficult bout with the virus, and therefore are advised to take precautions.

With this virus spreading, it's easy to fret. However, at Nature's Finest Nutrition, we have three products to promote prevention and recovery from this virus, and they're listed below with their historical uses and benefits.

 

1. NEOLIFE'S HERBAL RESPIRATORY FORMULA.herbal resp

According to their website, this product: "keeps lungs clear for easy breathing."

It also:

  • Promotes clear, quiet breathing, clear bronchial lining, and reduced congestion.
  • Supports regular and unrestricted bronchial and pulmonary airflow.

Its ingredients and historical uses include:

  • Elecampane root, to help promote air flow to the lungs.
  • Elder flower, to help relieve sneezing, itching, and other discomforts often associated with dust and pollen.
  • Thyme, to promote clear, quiet breathing and reduce congestion.

The great thing about this herbal formula is that it can be taken on an empty stomach, and a great deal of it can be taken for a short period of time.

 

 

2. NEOLIFE'S RESP-ELEVEN.resp-eleven

It is said to "help clear your sinuses and soothe distressed tissue for free, comfortable breathing."

It also:

  • Supports normal airflow in the sinuses and lungs.
  • Promotes a healthy immune response.

Its ingredients and historical uses include:

  • Horseradish root to support normal airflow in the sinuses and lungs, and promote a healthy immune response.
  • Pleurisy root and hyssop to promote clear, open airways, free of restrictions or excess moisture content, especially in the upper respiratory tract.

This formula does need to be taken with food.

 

 

3. NATURE'S SUNSHINE'S SILVER SHIELD.

This colloidal and ionic silver product is completely non-toxic, using particle-size colloids for maximum use in the body. It uses a patented technology called Silver Sol  shown to be several times more effective than colloidal and ionic silver products. Its cellular formation is super-charged to spread throughout the body at an exponential rate to heal the bosilverdy faster.

It's historical uses include:

  • anti-bacterial
  • anti-fungal
  • anti-viral
  • alleviating colds and flu
  • stimulating the immune system
  • fighting and killing nearly any of infection (including yeast and even leprosy!)
  • boosting wound healing
  • soothing burns, sunburns, and diaper rash
  • cleansing the body, blood, and brain
  • combating pneumonia, MRSA, Malaria, AIDS, HIV, and more!

Also, like the Herbal Respiratory Formula, large amounts of this product can be taken in small windows of time. A bottle a day may safely be taken for several days in a row, and unlike any other colloidal silver products, Silver Shield can be taken without the risk of ever turning the skin blue. 

Thank the new Silver Sol technology. There's nothing like it!
