A healthy immune system is your best defense. I’ve got five foundational tips for boosting yours!

Hello, hello. Today, we are going to talk about the top five tips for a healthy immune system. Now, this is different from boosting your immune system when we’ve got a crisis going on. These are action steps that you can do every single day to keep your immune system performing beautifully.

Chiropractic

Number one, I’m going to invite you to get a wellness chiropractor. One of the things our profession has done a very poor job of is letting people know we have specialties just like medicine. There are some of us that love to take care of children. Some of us do nothing but wellness. Some of us do workman’s comp, low back pain. We’re each a little bit different.

So, I invite you to call and interview your docs. If you need help with that, just comment below. We’ll help you find somebody great. When you get adjusted on a regular basis, your body and its nervous system operate at a prime level. For example, I’ve been adjusted no less than every two weeks for the last 30 years. I am NOT falling susceptible to (nervous system) miscommunication and possibly allowing a new challenge to sink in.

Sugar

The other thing that we can do is take a hard look at the insulin and the sugars that we are eating. We know research shows that when we have sugar, it actually slows down and sometimes even stops the immune system from functioning for up to hours at a time. We’re in a season where a lot of people are sick, then we’re sneezing or coughing, and we’re surrounded by germs. Always remember, it’s not the germ, it’s the host.

I want to make this really clear, simple steps to make the host stronger so that they can battle off and not be susceptible to the germs that are around us all the time. By keeping our insulins very low, (for children, it’s 20 grams or below, and for adults, it’s about 45 grams and below), we find our immune system stays extremely high. That includes drinks, food, and even fruit.  

Another of the major reasons we want to keep insulin down is high levels destroy our immune system by depressing our Vitamin d levels. Do you want to see if this is why your blood levels of Vit D are low?  Here is another easy home test to check this  Click HERE  Your levels should be below 5.4- anything higher than that you are depressing your Vit D and also potentially within a 10-year window of diabetes and heading towards Alzheimer’s.

Vitamin D

This is a blood test you can get at your doctor’s office or in the comfort of your own home. . If you need a kit, we can do that for you CLICK HERE.  Knowing what your Vit D levels are is essential for you to have because vitamin D is not only immune supportive, but it’s also a hormonal precursor. So, when our vitamin D is low, we are actually more susceptible to viral infections as well as an inability to produce our hormones. So, what happens next is we end up with PMS, possibly thyroid issues, tremendous bone density issues. I really encourage you to know what your vitamin D levels are and keep those well above the 60 range in your blood work. Want to know the Vit D I take personally CLICK HERE

Essential Oils

Then, of course, we can add in essential oils, and we talk about those having a front and center place in our wellness toolbox. Using those herbs that compacted in those little bottles, putting them alongside your spine, diffusing them, really helps keep the immune system nice and strong. So those are the five tips that I would love to share with you to be able to keep your immune system doing great every single day.
