- • 5 Ways to Stay Fit This Fall •
- • Improve Your Mental Health with Regular Meditation •
Yu Ping Feng San or Jade Windscreen is the true General Preventive formula (but, a good customized formula for your particular immune system is best & check with both an Acupuncture Physician & your Primary Care Doctor – if they are different – prior to taking any new Rx herbal or Western medication).
Whole Food Multi-Vitamins that include Zinc, B12 (shots a good idea), B complex, C, Vitamins D & A
Essential oils — drops under nose (Rosemary, Oregano, Lavender, Frankincense) throughout the day and in diffuser at home. These are powerful Anti-Viral substances – like Chinese herbs, & most of the research is just not studied in U.S. Western Med schools – they study, laboratory-made & patented drugs (often life-saving, too!)
GARGLE 3x/day with a few drops of food grade essential oils in water (or gargle with simple Salt Water).
Cut out alcohol/sugar altogether (at least until your immune system is at its peak).
Cut out Dairy, Wheat, Fried Foods (these are dampening/immune strength depleting foods) and eat whole and unprocessed
Exercise / walk and stretch
Deep Breathing / alternate nostril breathing for healthy lungs (this one makes the next one EZ 😊)
Meditate on Gratitude – Studies show that the better your mood, the better your immune system is functioning!
Acupuncture (of course! Can’t help it, it’s true!): Studies show that weekly to monthly acupuncture, from its maintaining proper intestinal mucosa, to stimulating T Cell production, to natural anti-inflammatory effects, can raise and maintain just about anyone’s immune system at a healthier level. Infrared lamps, sauna (check with doctor first) & massage are good adjuncts.
Immune Boosting Foods: Google this one as the list is long, but, they all start with garlic, ginger, berries, prebiotics (like chicory & artichokes, onion, leeks and/or just get in and with your Prebiotics – Renew Life makes a good Pre and Pro-biotic
Intermittent Fasting – Eat for 10 hours/fast for 14. So, for example, one fasts from 7:30 p.m. until 9:30 a.m. each morning or 7 p.m. ‘til 9 a.m. The body goes into “Autophagy” where it jumps into high gear cleaning out old and damaged cells enabling it to regenerate new, healthy cells much faster!
*If you can only manage ONE of these – put the anti-viral/anti-bacterial essential oils under your nose throughout the day to keep the sinus cavity as a strong 1st line of defense – & gargle with them daily in H2O.
