Health News (Week 41- 2016)
By Robert Redfern

No, not getting up earlier…I already start at my computer around 6am most days, but I am starting earlier than I have done in previous years to talk about the coming festive season. More people will die in this next 4 month period than any other 4 month period in the year.

The festive season is starting earlier. In the South it is spring but if you’re in the northern hemisphere in particular, then you’ll know that between the changes in winter weather, increased social activities and last minute running around…for some people it’s also known as the “flu season”.

I was reminded to create this newsletter as reports of pneumonia are also starting earlier. The sufferers sometimes lead a ‘relatively’ healthy lifestyle (though can’t be sure) yet still succumbed to an infection. What does this tell us?

It tells me that we can never lower our guard and must constantly be building a healthy body and immune system. This doesn’t mean you can’t be sociable and have a piece of cake to celebrate, but we all need a menu of meals that we eat on a daily basis that only contains the building (or re-building) blocks for a super healthy body…at every age.

There are those who naturally have a strong immune system and there are those like me whose mother died at 62 and father at 64 who simply cannot take chances with my immune system.

The Important Question Is: Do Flu Shots Work?

The effectiveness of the flu vaccine has been overestimated according to numerous reports — including a study from The University of Michigan which states that flu shots provide only moderate protection and, in many cases, no protection at all.

The fact is only those NOT following a really healthy lifestyle are more likely to develop flu compared to those living a healthy lifestyle. The exceptions are those with weak immune systems. You may be wondering if a flu shot isn’t the way to protect yourself from sickness then what is…?

Real Protection

The single best way to protect yourself is a healthy immune system – through a really healthy lifestyle and well researched nutrients that support a healthy immune system.

Some of you might be thinking, “That’s all well and good for those ‘naturally healthy people’ but my immune system is weak – I catch a cold at the sight of another person sniffling”. Colds and flu are not very troubling for those with a strong immune system.

If that’s your goal, or if you simply want to get your immune system into shape, then don’t despair…keep reading and I’m sure you’ll appreciate what I’m about to share with you.

A healthy immune system is probably the greatest health asset you can have at any age…but especially as we age. It’s also turning out to be one of the greatest health challenges in our modern society as weak immune systems are linked to most diseases.

Nothing But Benefits

It’s a beneficial goal and certainly a worthwhile investment given that a healthy immune system will protect against viruses like the common cold or flu, both of which are a critical consideration for the upcoming season. But immunity is more about health than strength.

An often overlooked aspect is that our immune system needs support from many healthy body systems.

Nothing But Benefits

It’s a beneficial goal and certainly a worthwhile investment given that a healthy immune system will protect against viruses like the common cold or flu, both of which are a critical consideration for the upcoming season. But immunity is more about health than strength.

An often overlooked aspect is that our immune system needs support from many healthy body systems.

These healthy systems include:

  • Breathing
  • Digestive
  • Emotional
  • Hormonal
  • Cellular
  • Energetic
  • Cardiovascular
  • Cognitive health

Along with friendly bacteria.

In fact, researchers are constantly unravelling the intriguing and far-reaching powers of immune function.

It’s much more than simply protecting us from foreign invaders and germs…a healthy vital immune system is core to nearly every aspect of our long-term health, such as anti-ageing and vitality. And in today’s world, we need to stay strong and healthy more than ever.

Unfortunately, there are many factors working AGAINST your immune health: unhealthy diets, lifestyle habits, poor breathing, damp and spores, emotional stress, exhaustion, environmental factors, and the pharmaceutical drugs that supposedly promise to protect us from pathogenic (disease causing) germs.

For example, recent studies report the failure of antibiotics in the case of the most dangerous pathogenic germs.

Other reports demonstrate that mutating bacteria are evolving into deadly, drug-resistant forms.

Eggs, poultry and many factory-farmed meats are all contaminated with various bacteria and only organic and pasture-raised are normally safe to eat. GMO and grain-fed are equally as bad.

Solutions

Luckily, there are numerous ways to effectively support our healthy immune system that, in turn, support many other aspects of long-term body health and vice versa.

My Number 1 Recommendation For A Healthy Immune System

2016-41-01I decided a long time ago to create a research based supplement to support and balance the immune system – whether it’s against infection or balancing with allergies.

The result is D.I.P – Daily Immune Protection. While many other immune health products “boost” or “stimulate” the immune system, D.I.P. is in a category all of its own because it “balances” immune response for optimal performance.

Research shows that the ingredients in the D.I.P. formula support the function of both the innate and adaptive immune systems.

It also works to “educate” the immune system by promoting the proper immune response when the body is being inappropriately attacked, as is the case with allergies.

My Number 2 recommendation is Prescript Biotics, the only probiotic with full scientific studies to prove it works.

 

Prescript-Biotics™ – The SBOs in PrescriptBiotics™ are cultured together and encapsulated with their own ancestral food source to keep them vital and living: a humic and fulvic acid prebiotic made
from minerals that are billions of years old and extracted from deep inside the earth.

This pristine processing ensures each PrescriptBiotics™ SBO capsule meets the highest standard in quality. PrescriptBiotics™ capsules are pure, chemical-free, toxin-free, GMO-free, nutrient-rich, and naturally dehydrated to avoid damage done in the freeze-drying process.

 

 

My Number 3 recommendation is HydroSol Silver Spray

2016-41-03The latest patented silver technology is a ‘sol’ form, which has a unique tetrahedral structure and a coating of silver oxide, making it very stable. It’s made with extremely pure water, a key factor in quality and safety. It also has a natural resonance, which means that the silver does not need to actually contact the bacteria to be effective. Tests have shown it to be up to 10,000 times more effective than standard colloidal or ionic silver.

Even hospitals are now opting to use colloidal silver. One example is the use of colloidal silver to prevent the spread of Legionnaires’ disease in hospital water supplies. Hospitals have also used this amazing alternative to antibiotics to treat the eyes of newly born babies, and to help prevent blindness due to infection. Some hospitals have even produced their own colloidal silver formulas when antibiotic treatments have failed.

  1. Diet and Digestion. Healthy digestion forms the foundation of a strong immune system. It requires healthy nutrition from a diet filled with vegetables, dark skinned fruits, nuts, seeds, healthy fats and protein. This also includes good hydration with plenty of filtered water all day long. The worst dietary assault to immunity is overconsumption of grains, cereals and other high sugar foods and drinks.
  2. Circulation Problems can lead to other unwanted health complications. Unless the body has a strong circulatory system, nutrients aren’t conveyed to immune cells, germs and waste build-up, and communication between various aspects of immunity breaks down. Poor circulation also contributes to chronic inflammation and vice versa, creating a vicious immune-suppressing cycle. Daily exercise (even just a brisk walk) and proper hydration can help to improve circulation.
  3. Mind/Body. A growing collection of research shows that stress may be one of our greatest immune killers. Chronic physical and mental stress, anxiety, lack of sleep and even pessimism have been shown to detract from health in numerous ways, including a reduction in immune function. On the other hand, happiness, laughter and strong social networks boost immunity and protect against chronic and acute illness.

Loving pets can provide a critical boost to immunity as well. Do what brings you joy and satisfaction: Spend time with people who uplift you.
