These days, when, among other pitfalls, we have to approach various government regulations responsibly, we should really be aware of one fact that we are talking about in our online webinars. By this we mean the fact that there is only one difference between those who go through the disease “without losing a flower”, ie those who are prepared, and those who will have to be treated, because their immune system was not strong enough, prepared and the body’s defense failed. We are talking about the immune system, which needs to be strengthened, stimulated, and built. Our immune system is waging a systematic war against these invaders, which is more exciting than any movie thriller or television report.
Why? Because it takes place right in our body. Our body needs a sufficient amount of antioxidants in the form of, for example, vitamin C, zinc, selenium, and others, which are found in fruits and vegetables.
In one study, 112 Canadian soldiers living in the same extreme conditions were given 1 gram of vitamin C daily. The number of colds decreased by 68% compared to the control group, which did not receive vitamin C.
Two-time Nobel Prize winner Linus Pauling calculated that the diet of prehistoric man contained about 40 times more vitamin C than our diet today. That’s more than 3 grams of vitamin C a day.
Aspirin used in colds increases the excretion of vitamin C from the body tenfold.
Refined sugar paralyzes white blood cells, so it destroys them, so white blood cells lose their mobility and their functionality.
No wonder infection can easily overwhelm us today. Don’t forget the helpers – food supplements, that the Lifestyles company offers you.
Healthy tips to strengthen your immune system
- Don’t smoke.
- Eat a diet high in fruits and vegetables.
- Exercise regularly.
- Maintain a healthy weight.
- If you drink alcohol, drink only in moderation.
- Get adequate sleep.
- Take steps to avoid infection, such as washing your hands frequently and cooking meats thoroughly.
- Don’t forget the helpers – food supplements, that the Lifestyles company offers you.
- Try to minimize stress.
Keep current with all recommended vaccines. Vaccines prime your immune system to fight off infections before they take hold in your body.
- Those who had regular sex ( with a loved one) twice a week, were found to have higher levels of immunoglobulin A (IgA) in their saliva. (IgA is one of the five major classes of human antibodies, which is widely released on the mucosal surface and plays an important role in protection against microorganisms.
Bacteria and viruses multiply explosively. Thus, from a few individuals, a huge number of millions of pathogens can be present within a few hours. Therefore, at the moment of attack, our body begins to explosively produce millions of immune cells.
However, for this, the immune cell factory needs building materials:
A/ Proteins. If there are few of them, he pulls them out of the muscles and our muscles lose weight (which weakens us). Protein consumption increases by up to 30%. Plant proteins (eg legumes) are ideal because animals multiply the work of the immune system and thus overload it at a critical moment. Complete proteins contain all 20 amino acids. Eight of these amino acids are called “essential amino acids”, which the organism cannot produce on its own, and it is therefore really important to supplement them regularly!
B/B vitamins to control the construction of immune cells. In the absence of vitamin B, the immune system does not produce sufficient striking power (there will not be enough lymphocytes and macrophages).
C/ Vitamin C. We also need a sufficient supply of vitamin C to “fill” new white blood cells with it.
D/ The immune cell factory also needs selenium (increases lymphocyte stimulation, NK-cell activity, and increases the production of interferon, which stimulates defense) and zinc, which is necessary for DNA synthesis.
E/Plus needs vitamin E, which together with vitamin C “armors” cells against free radicals. So what to do in case of infections? Read the next chapter.
