IMMUNE SYSTEM SUPPORT
Here's a look into my favorite immune support supplements and healthy choices during cold and flu season. Number one is A LOT of vitamin C. If you are not eating four to five servings of fresh fruits and veggies a day, you need to supplement your diet with an ascorbate form of "C". As humans we lack the ability to make vitamin C in our bodies, therefore supplementation is critical. Divided dosage is also another factor to consider, ie.every four hours. I personally use Xcellent C from Xymogen in our office. Two capsules provide 1500mg of high potency C in additon to a black pepper extract to improve absorption. Xcellent C also contains buffering minerals to help prevent potential stomach upset that can turn some people away from taking supplements in the first place. Not only is C anti-viral, it is necessary for the production of collagen and a powerful antioxidant. Two to three capsules divided thru the day, increasing as signs of dis-ease set in.
Next is Silver Sol, the new technology in silver suspension. Other forms are known as Colloidal Silver. This new technology is a smaller nano-particle that is more easily eliminated from the body once it has done it's job. Silver is anti-viral, anti-bacterical and anti-fungal, like an antiseptic for your insides out! I use a teaspoon twice a day, or more as signs of dis-ease set in and always increasing before, during and after travel. This liquid and gel form can be used in many ways but for the sake of our current climate, try also swabbing the gel on the inside of your nose nightly to support healthy nasal passageways. Our favorite here is ASAP Health Max 10 from American Biotech Labs.
Zinc lozenges are also a favorite for the scratchy throats and post nasal drip irritation that can plague us during allergy season. Zinc also speeds healing of tissues and may reduce the duration of colds.
Also whole plant hemp extract, specifically cannabigerol (CBG) has been used to slow or kill bacterial growth as well as inhibit cell growth in tumor/cancer cells. My favorite, Prime My Body's FOCUS (formally RECEPT) also helps fight inflammation and pain of common arthritc issues. Double bonus!
And lastly don't forget the most important way to keep your body on top of it's game and to fight germs that are always around us, our nervous system. Regular chiorpractic adjustments keep the nervous system free of interferences so it can continue to function at 100%. Get plenty of exercise, fresh air and meaningful sleep. It is also helpful to practice meditation or quiet the mind, as anxiety and stress can compromise our immune. And of course keep washing your hands!
