The Miracle of Immunity
The immune system of the body is our primary defense and “home maintenance” system. It keeps our body clean of toxins and resistant to invading organisms. It is responsible for detecting and eliminating possible pathogenic organisms such as bacteria, fungi and viruses, as well as detecting, destroying and replacing bad, damaged or defective cells from injury. It is kind of like our police and handy man all rolled into one.
Where is the immune system? If we look at our circulatory system, we can identify it. It consists of the heart, arteries, veins and capillaries all connected in a closed system. The digestive system? – Well, it starts at the mouth and winds its way through our body via the esophagus, stomach, small intestines, large intestines and ends you know where. Nervous System…Skeletal System…Lymph System…they can all be seen and identified. But where is the immune system?
IT IS IN EVERY CELL OF OUR BODY. Whereas we do have unique blood cells called Lymphocytes, Basophils, Eosinophils, etc. which we identify as components of Immunity…they do not exist in an individuated system. They roam our body searching and eliminating those organisms and toxins which may have the potential of causing harm. Although these specialized cells are “designed” to accomplish these tasks, every cell, organ, tissue of the body also has its innate ability to protect itself. In fact, the largest organ of immunity is our SKIN. It is our primary defense. Our breath is also a vital component of our immune system, expelling toxins and alien critters with every exhalation. The specialized white blood cells actually only come into play if our primary defenses are overwhelmed.
We have come to believe that when the bacteria, viruses, fungi and toxins enter our body, we get sick. In fact this is a MYTH. If tomorrow you visited a lab, you would find that your body is full of these invaders. Yet, you are not sick because your immune system keeps them in check. It is only when our immune system becomes compromised, do these invaders cause havoc.
SO…to dispel this myth: First, you are sick, your immunity falters and then the bacteria, viruses, fungi, and toxins have the opportunity to cause disease.
So, in regards to “germs”… have no fear. As long as your immune system is strong, you have nothing to worry about. Of the men, women and children exposed to germs, only a handful actually manifest the disease. The others’ immune systems are able to protect them. So I repeat: As long as your immune system is strong, there is NOTHING TO WORRY ABOUT.
Next, I wish to share with you seven strategies to super-power your immune system.
7 Tips to Strengthen Your Immune System
1) “Don’t Worry, Be Happy”
Thanks to the research of Candice Pert (Discoverer of Neuropeptides and the author of the book Molecules of Emotion) and other brilliant scientists and doctors, we now know that our emotions and thoughts directly effect our immune system. In fact, a new science has emerged called PsychoNeuroImmunology – The science of the relationship between Thoughts and Emotions, Our Nervous System and Our Immune System. In fact, in the advanced sciences, they see no distinction between these systems – they are in fact, all one.
A recent study performed at the University of Ohio has demonstrated that
1) Positive Thoughts increase T-Cell counts (a powerful part of our immune system) and negative thoughts decrease T-Cell counts… and …
2) Experiences of Love increase immune function.
So close your eyes and visualize your body and immune system as strong as can be. See your self like Superman standing upon your own Fortress of Solitude with your cape blowing behind you…your chin up in the air with confidence and self-esteem. Remind yourself everyday of the beauty that still exists in our world…Rainbows…Full Moons…Sunrises…Sunsets….A Baby’s Smile…Grandma’s Soup… Jumping Dolphins… Roaring Lions… Prancing Horses… Humans singing together under candle light. There is so much to love and so much to appreciate. Remind yourself of these things everyday.
If you would like some more specific exercises, Chapter 8 “Think and Grow Healthy” in my book A Clear Path to Healing has a 7 step process for using your mind to create anything you desire…including a strong immune system. Also, check out the revolutionary Self Discovery Life Mastery process at www.sdlifemastery.com.

Step One in strengthening your immune system is this:
Don’t Worry…Be Happy!
2) Healthy Spine Free of Tension and Interference
Whereas the immune system is the defense and maintenance system of the body…the nervous system is the orchestrator of that system. The brain, spinal cord and nerves control everything in the body and mind. All body function and healing…perception and response…thoughts and feeling…are all controlled and organized by the nervous system.
Stresses in our life – Physical, Emotional, Chemical and Cultural – cause tension to build up in our nervous system and its surrounding structures (Spinal Column, Muscles, Tendons, etc.). Especially when those stress are overwhelming. This tension interferes with body function and healing – especially Immune Function.
The best method I know of to keep your spine free of tension and interference is Chiropractic – specifically Network Spinal Analysis or NSA.
NSA is a system of Wellness Care that uses very gentle touches on specific areas of the spine called “Spinal Gateways” to help identify areas of tension and entrain the body to self-regulate these areas of tension and heal. People under Network Care report that they are able to handle stress better, enjoy life more and are able to make healthier choice in their life.
So, step 2 in strengthening your immune system is to keep your spine free of tension, utilizing Chiropractic, specifically Network Spinal Analysis, as an effective tool.
3) EAT HEALTHY
Don’t allow those free radicals to get into your body begin with. Also, provide your body with the phytochemicals in plants and fruits which support a strong immune system. I outline a healthy system of eating in my book, A Clear Path to Healing, which will share with you now.
1) Drink at least 1/2 your body weight in ounces of Filtered water every day.
Our personal favorite the Waterfall by Nikken.
2) Read food labels and don’t eat anything which has ingredients that do not sound like food. (i.e. monosodium glutamate, blue #6, anything bleached, etc.)
3) Eat food in the following ratio: 75% or more Alkaline Foods – 25% or less Acid Foods. Alkaline foods are fruits and veggies…Acid is everything else. (Exceptions: Almonds, Millet and Salmon tend toward Alkaline…pomegranates are Acid fruits)
4) Specific foods high in phytochemicals:
So, step 3 in strengthening your immune system is to EAT HEALTHY!
4) ANTIOXIDANTS AND IMMUNITY STIMULANTS
Antioxidants are nutrients which eliminate from the body detrimental chemicals called Free Radicals. Free Radicals are toxins which destroy human cells and cause the immune system to work extra hard. By supplementing your diet with antioxidants, you will help clean your body of Free Radicals and give your immune system a break to focus on other things. Also, supplement your diet with nutrients which build a healthy immune systems
The Antioxidants and Immunostimulants are:
Also, Mushrooms have demonstrated themselves to strengthen immunity.
What? Mushrooms?!?!? That’s right. Mushrooms are powerful immune system supporters that have been used in the Orient and in the South American jungles for thousands of years. I am not talking about your run-of-the-mill throw in the salad mushrooms. I am speaking of specific varieties of mushrooms found only in tropical rainforests and other remote parts of the world. Such varieties as Shiitake, Maitake, oyster, enoki, reishi, astragalus and many others. These mushrooms contain powerful immune system builders called alpha and beta glucans which are not naturally produced by our bodies. They are only found in plant and animal sources.
I know of a product called Bio-Directed Immunity. It is a special blend of 20 varieties of Immune Strengthening mushrooms, organically grown under precise laboratory conditions. If you are interested in getting more information about this product and purchasing it for yourself and your family, email our Wellness Consultant at firstname.lastname@example.org
Step 4 in strengthening your immune system is supplementing your diet with ANTIOXIDANTS and MUSHROOMS
5) CLEAN ENVIRONMENT
The less work your immune system has to do, the more energy and resources it has to keep you healthy. Why bog it down with unnecessary toxins from your environment. Using an effective air and water filter actually nourishes your body’s immunity allowing it to rest, rather than putting it to work. If you are looking for very effective, affordable air or water filter system, contact our wellness consultant, Anja at email@example.com
Step 5 in strengthening your immune system is cleansing your air and water with an effective filter.
There are actually bacteria in our body that supports our health and our immune systems. These are called Probiotics ( as opposed to Antibiotics which destroy life and inhibit our immune system). These probiotic organisms live in our digestive system and have such names as Lactobacillus acidophilis and Bifidobacterium bifidum. These probiotic, immunity-strengthening bacteria are readily available through a food which is available in any supermarket – YOGURT! If you are lactose-intolerant or just do not like yogurt, probiotic supplements are available at any health-food store.
Step 6 to strengthen your immune system is to TAKE A PROBIOTIC SUPPLEMENT and/or EAT YOGURT
7) ADEQUATE EXERCISE, DEEP BREATHING AND PROPER REST
The last thing I’d like to discuss are two things which may seem diametrically opposed but they go hand-in-hand: ADEQUATE EXERCISE and PROPER REST. I go into these in very specific detail in A Clear Path to Healing, but briefly you want to get good aerobic exercise at least 5 times a week. This can be a walk, a swim, a run. Something to get the blood flowing in your veins and your breath deepened. Deep breathing supports a strong immune system.
And after exercising make sure you get proper rest. There are many strategies to improve sleep including proper posture, firm supportive mattress, meditation and the use of magnetic and far-infrared technologies. To learn more, pick up my book A Clear Path to Healing or email our Wellness Consultant, Anja at firstname.lastname@example.org
So, step 7 to strengthen your immune system is Adequate Exercise, Take Deep Breaths and Proper Rest
To Strengthen Your Immune System:
1) Don’t Worry…Be Happy
2) Keep Your Spine Free of Tension
3) Eat Healthy
4) Take Antioxidants and Immunity Stimulants
5) Take Probiotics and Eat Yogurt!
6) Filter your Air and Water
7) Get Adequate Exercise, Deep Breathe and Proper Rest
I hope you all take action on this information, so that you are strong and fearless against this little wimp – Mr. Germ
