Sometimes eating healthy food and getting enough rest and exercise may not be enough to boost your immune system, particularly when you’re being exposed to bacteria and viruses in your environment. When you think your immune system needs a bit more help, here are some simple steps you can take:
Step 1: Reduce chemicals and toxins.
Toxic chemicals are rife in any household. In fact, the average household contains over 62 toxic chemicals! When you learn that exposure to the toxins contained in popular brands has been linked to neurotoxocity, endocrine problems, and even cancer, it’s important to get clear about the safety of the products you choose to use!
Toxins from household products can get into your body through your skin and hair, respiratory system and digestive system. Some of them can immediately have an effect on your body, however others build up inside your body over time and you may only experience the negative health consequences after months or years.
Replacing your harmful household products for nontoxic biodegradable onesis a smart choice for health. Once you find the right products for your family, it’s easy to eliminate bacteria and toxic chemicals in your home and health regime. For example, Young Living Thieves Household Cleaner is plant-based, yet it kills bacteria and viruses. Thieves toothpaste, mouthwash and soap combine gentle cleaning without the harsh chemicals, and the therapeutic benefits of Thieves essential oils.
Step 2: Increase Nutrients
Diet and exercise is important for immunity. However, with modern farming methods and chemical fertilisers, the nutritional value of our food has decreased significantly. We’re not getting enough nutrients to support immunity, and this makes us vulnerable to illnesses.
Boosting your immune system can be as easy as drinking NingXia Red, which is not only filled with powerful antioxidants, but also promotes healthy liver function, eye health and cellular function. It blocks oxygen-based free radicals from doing damage because of its high anthocyanin and polyphenol content. Because it also contains therapeutic-grade essential oils, the nutrients are taken straight to the cells to energise, fortify and replenish them.
OmegaGize3 is another highly recommended product as it combines the power of 3 key daily supplements: Omega-3 fatty acids, Vitamin D-3 and CoQ10.
Omega-3 fatty acids assist in brain, heart, eye and joint health, and as it’s not produced in the body it needs to be a part of our dietary intake. For more information, visit the Harvard School of Public Health: Omega 3 Fatty Acids: An Essential Contribution
Vitamin D-3 helps the body absorb calcium, while helping to heal the skin and prevent infections. Research shows that a significant number of adults are vitamin D-3 deficient. For more information you can read this medical article: Vitamin D deficiency in adults.
CoQ10 is a super antioxidant that generates high levels of energy for organs such as the heart, kidneys and liver. It’s produced in the body but that starts to decline after about 30 years of age, and hence why supplementation is recommended.
Inner Defense liquid capsules are designed to help strengthen your immune system and support your well-being. The formula includes Thieves Essential Oil, Oregano and Thyme. Did you know that Thyme is one of the strongest antioxidants known?
Step 3: Reduce Pharmaceuticals
Pharmaceutical drugs are readily available to relieve every sort of ache, pain and ailment. However, therapeutic grade essential oils are a healthy and powerful alternative for helping the treatment and prevention of many health issues, without the side effects and toxicity found in pharmaceuticals. Everyday health can be fostered with the support of essential oils – they’re safe, effective and easy to use for the entire family.
Specially formulated essential oils such as Thieves, PanAway, Peace & Calming and Purification are special blends of essential oils with benefits such as anti-inflammatory, sedative, antiseptic and antibacterial properties. Have a look at what each essential oil can do for you and your immune system!
