Immune System Boosters
The Immune System - Our Body's Inbuilt Defence and Repair System
Let’s take a look at some basic facts about our health. Our Immune System is our body’s NATURAL DEFENCE against sickness and disease.
- A weak Immune System is an open invitation to sickness and disease
- A strong Immune system can stop sickness and disease in their tracks
There are a number of ways that we can quickly and easily boost our Immune Systems. This basic preventative care only takes a few minutes each
day and soon becomes part of your daily routine. Lets take a look at the main headings one by one.
ALKALISE - Your Body's Chemistry And Its Balancing Act
To be in a healthy vibrant state our bodies need to ensure that our blood is slightly ALKALINE at around 7.36 pH. When it comes to a measurement of acidity or alkalinity, pH is the measure that is used and comes on a scale from 0 to 14 with 0 being highly acidic and 14 being highly alkaline. A pH of 7 is neutral. Pure water has a pH of 7. The pH scale is logarithmic and as a result, each whole pH value, below 7 or above 7, is ten times more acidic / alkaline than the next higher value. If the perfect body ph is 7.36, then it is slightly alkaline. Cancer cannot survive in an alkaline environment. There are 3 factors involved in maintaining a healthy pH balance.
The first is by changing your diet to one that favours alkaline foods rather than acidic foods, the second is by drinking filtered alkaline water and the third is to reduce your daily stress levels and exercise helps with this. Stress creates acid in your body and when you get stressed your muscles tense. This process creates a by-product from a chemical reaction in your muscle called lactic acid. You are more susceptible to illness when your body is run down or under sever stress. As your body gets back into the correct pH balance you will find that your energy levels increase.
IT'S NO SECRET - AN ALKALINE BODY = A HEALTHY BODY.
To repair the body we need to bring it back into a healthier acid/alkali pH balance that supports the Immune System through a range of changes like proper nutrition, drinking clean filtered alkaline water, basic exercise at least once a day like a good 20 minute walk at minimum and reducing our intake of acid forming foods and drinks like processed foods, sugar, white flour products, red meat and animal protein, carbonated drinks, pasteurised milk, alcohol and fried foods - the rule of thumb is "If Man Made It - Don't Eat It". Our aim is to change our diet from what is typically an 80% Acid and 20% Alkaline intake to a 80% Alkaline and 20% Acid intake. It's hard to do this all at once, but even if you can initially aim for a 60% Alkaline and 40% Acid intake - then this would be a huge step in the right direction.
As regards pasteurised Milk (mentioned in our no-no list above) - Sally Fallon of the Weston Price Foundation in the United
States said it like this:
“Pasteurization destroys enzymes, diminishes vitamin content, denatures fragile milk proteins, destroys vitamin B12 and vitamin B6, kills beneficial bacteria, promotes pathogens and is associated with allergies, increased tooth decay, colic in infants, growth problems in children, osteoporosis, arthritis, heart disease and cancer.”
When milk is pasteurised it changes the milk protein (casein) content to an inorganic form that cannot be absorbed properly by the body. When this protein cannot be broken down, it weakens your Immune System, causing allergies and many other problems. Milk is acid-forming in our body.
There are many foods that are just as high (if not higher) in calcium than dairy products. Some of these include - Oatmeal, vegetables, beans, dark leafy greens (like bok choy, kale and broccoli), moringa leaf, fish with bones (like sardines and canned salmon), carrots, figs, sesame seed, oysters, seafood, oranges and almond and brazil nuts. In many cases, non-dairy food sources of calcium can be healthier since they are also sources of other vitamins and minerals. For instance - Moringa Leaf is rich in many nutrients and has a high calcium value, pound for pound, 17 times the calcium in milk. Despite this, it is safe for all to consume, including those who are lactose intolerant, as it doesn’t contain any lactose.
In general, the recommended daily allowance (RDA) of calcium for adults is between 1,000 and 1,200 mg. A serving of milk is about 300mg of calcium, so women are supposed to be drinking around four glasses of milk per day. Vitamin D and Magnesium are both necessary for the body to use calcium and without these, calcium won’t be absorbed correctly. Calcium is also contained in good quantities in our supergreen foods that we take on a daily basis as our morning health smoothie.
pH Tests on some everyday drinks ...
We did a test to measure the pH of some soft drinks as well as some popular alcoholic drinks, using a digital pH meter. Here are our results ...
|Alkaline Filtered Water||9.30||High Alkalinity|
|Gin (Neat)||8.30||Medium Alkalinity|
|Tap Water||7.00||A pH of 7 is NEUTRAL - Anything below that is Acidic and above that is Alkaline - Each integer drop is a factor of 10. So a pH of 6 is 10 times more acidic than a pH of 7|
|Soda Water||5.40||Medium Acidity|
|Whisky & Soda Water||5.20||Medium Acidity|
|Whisky & Tap Water||4.20||Medium Acidity|
|Whisky (Neat)||4.18||Medium Acidity|
|Stella Artois||4.10||Medium Acidity|
|Red Wine||3.65||High Acidity|
|Bulmers Cider||3.63||High Acidity|
|Diet Coke||2.90||Highly Acidic - normal Coke was lower still!|
|Gin & Tonic Water||2.65||Highly Acidic|
|Tonic Water||2.50||Highly Acidic|
People who drink sugary fizzy drinks, smoke, eat chips or other fatty foods, eat ‘junk food’ or have stressful jobs all have one thing in common - acidic bodies. Acidity in the body is related to disease. Acid reflux is a painful condition that occurs when acidic stomach liquid backs up (refluxes) into the oesophagus, causing irritation, inflammation and damage to the lining of the oesophagus.
Fat is also produced by the body to trap and neutralise acidic waste in the body. As Dr. Robert O. Young, author of The pH Miracle for Weight Loss, puts it, "The body retains fat as a protection against the overproduction of acids produced by the typical American diet ... Your fat is actually saving your life."
Inflammatory related diseases such as allergies, arthritis, fibromyalgia, psoriasis, and even stroke are related to low-grade metabolic acidosis. Cancer, yeasts, viruses, bacteria and other pathogens cannot survive in an alkaline body ... they all need an acidic environment to survive.
For instance, if you increase cellular oxygen/alkaline levels equivalent to a pH of 7.5, the herpes virus will die. And if you maintain a cellular pH of 7.5 you will never experience another outbreak again. IT’S NOT BIOLOGICALLY POSSIBLE!
WELL NOW THERE IS ..
Your Health Can Be Significantly Improved By These 3 Factors:
Daily use of alkaline water is the best form of natural detoxification. The only way to get chemical free water is to filter it in your home. This also does not have the environmental impact and expense of buying bottled water. A good filtration system will remove all the harmful toxins and chemicals and will re-mineralise your water as well. Good water filtration systems are now very affordable. Filters usually last about 1 year before requiring change.
We have looked at many systems and the one we highly recommend is ffrom the UK and is called the Energy Plus system. We installed a unit a few months ago and the difference in the taste of our water is dramatic. We have tested the pH values and can confirm a good alkalinity. To learn more about the Energy Plus System please click: Water Filters. They are under-counter systems and are usually installed by your local plumber, although you can do it yourself. If you would like to taste the water, then we would be happy to supply some for you to try. We also supply the popular counter top 1.8 litre Biocera Water Jug Filter.
Why Not Just Drink Tap Water?Most tap or bottled water has a neutral pH - it is neither acidic nor alkaline. Tap water is horribly unhealthy not only because it is filled with chlorine, fluoride and other additives toxic to life but there are a great deal of impurities that have not been removed. These include hormones from the contraceptive pill and HRT. In a recent study, more that 56 pharmaceutical drugs were found to be present in tap water including a cholesterol medication, the anti-convulsant carbamazepine, tranquilizers and mood stabilizers. There are also traces of pesticides, industrial solvents & bacteria. Every chemical we use in our society works its way into our water supplies. What people aren’t aware of is that municipal water treatment doesn’t take those things out. It’s designed to kill bacteria, take out the visible particles, but does not take out the synthetic organic chemicals.
All The GOOD FOOD You Eat Cannot Make Up For The BAD WATER That You Drink.
If You Don't Drink Filtered Water, Then YOU Become The Filter!This is the first and one of the most important changes you can make to your lifestyle. It's easy to do and has major health benefits. We are happy to advise you on the best systems to buy and are happy for you to sample the taste of the water produced by this filtration system. Just ask us for more information.

But beware, all Probiotics are not the same.
There is one natural substance that is highly effective against micro parasites and is a powerful Immune System booster. The substance known as Allicin is contained in the Garlic Bulb. Allicin is available in capsule form and does not leave you with garlic breath. It is one of natures powerful antibiotic, anti-parasite, anti-viral and anti-fungal products. Allicin also works very quickly on domestic animals - large and small. Dogs and cats love Allicin spread on their food.

A VERY BRIEF SUMMARY OF BODY FREQUENCIES ...
Human cells can start to change (mutate) when their frequency drops below 62 MHz.
58 MHz is the frequency of your body when you could have a cold or the flu.
When candida and parasites are present within your body, you vibrate at a frequency of around 55 MHz.
52 MHz is the frequency of a body with viruses like the Epstein-Barr virus.
42 MHz is the frequency of a body wherein cancer can appear.
When the death process begins - the frequency has been measured at 20 MHz.
So it is important to try and keep your body frequency above 62 MHz.
A FEW BODY FREQUENCIES THAT HAVE BEEN MEASURED ...
- Brain frequency at 80-82 MHz, indicates a genius
- Healthy Body (neck down) 6:00 am to 6:00 pm is 62-68 MHz
- Thyroid and Parathyroid glands are 62-68 MHz
- Thymus Gland is 65-68 MHz
- Heart is 67-70 MHz
- Lungs are 58-65 MHz
- Liver is 55-60 MHz
- Pancreas is 60-80 MHz
- Disease begins, colds invade at 59-60 MHz
- Stomach is 58-65 MHz
- Ascending Colon is 58-60 MHz
- Descending Colon is 58-63 MHz
- Flu like symptoms at 58 MHz
- Viral Infection at 55 MHz
- Epstein Barr at 52 MHz
- Tissue breakdown from disease at 48 MHz
- Cancer at 42 MHz
- Death begins at 20 MHz
So How Can You Raise Your Body Frequency?
Another well known way of doing this is through Essential Oils which have a very high frequency and will help you lift your own. Research has found that the high frequency of essential oils creates an environment where bacteria, fungi and viruses cannot survive.
For example, here are the average frequencies of some of the therapeutic grade essential oils that have been measured:
Rose (Rosa damascene).....................320 MHz
Lavender (Lavendula angustifolia)........118 MHz
Myrrh (Commiphora myrrha)................105 MHz
Blue Chamomile (Matricaria recutita).....105 MHz
Juniper (Juniperus osteosperma)............98 MHz
Aloes/Sandalwood (Santalum album)......96 MHz
Angelica (Angelica archangelica)...........85 MHz
Peppermint (Mentha peperita)..............78 MHz
Galbanum (Ferula gummosa).................56 MHz
Basil (Ocimum basilicum)......................52 MHz
The Detox / Energy Bath consists of adding a combination of Epsom Salts, Sea Salt, Apple Cider Vinegar, Bentonite Clay, Ground Ginger, Bicarbonate of Soda and 6 - 10 drops of one or more of your favourite essential oils to your bath water and then soaking for 20 minutes. This will act as powerful whole body Detox as well as a Body Frequency enhancer. Call us for the exact recipe and we can also give you handy links as to where to buy the ingredients.
