It’s YOUR immune system.
November 17, 2019 By Billy
Diet, exercise, hydration, even sunshine and sleep – it’s all connected. And one of the great results of living a healthy way of life? Taken care of properly, your body is less likely to suffer from illness of all kinds. By maximizing the things that strengthen the body and minimizing the things that weaken the body, naturally you’ll be able to enjoy your life at its greatest potential.
While there’s no guarantees you’ll never feel under-the-weather, I can assure you that your body’s immune system can become much stronger by just a few simple adjustments in your diet and lifestyle. These days the body is commonly underestimated when it comes to both prevention of illness and healing. We live in a society where often the first recourse is to turn to modern science, to depend on pharmaceuticals to fix what’s ailing us. But a body well-taken care of has an extraordinary ability to take care of itself. A powerful immune system generated via a top-notch lifestyle is always the body’s preferred remedy.
As we all know, making the body resilient to disease is largely about incorporating foods with vital nutrients like vitamin C, vitamin D, and zinc that strengthen the immune system. Equally important is cutting the weakening junk foods out. By now, after years of reading my newsletters, you can guess what the culprits are: processed sugar, low-grade animal protein, cheap oils, flour, and similar heavily processed food. It’s helpful here to understand that rather than the immune system being an actual ‘thing’ in the body it’s really more of an intelligence in the body – the immune system works hand-in-hand with the neurological system. The intelligence of the immune system is truly awesome, and it does a lot more than just fighting colds.
Cancer and the immune system
I’d like to jump to the top of the totem pole and share with you an important note about cancer since recently we’ve been receiving more calls from customers about this rising health concern. Cancer prevention (and healing), believe it or not, is primarily about strengthening the immune system. Vitamin C (the strongest antioxidant) we know to be an incomparable immune-system booster and is lab-proven to be the most effective anti-cancer nutrient, too. This is reason for giving the high-vitamin C foods some real attention. I’d like to share with you here that vitamin D is also a huge part of your immune system. It’s quite ironic that the correct amount of sunshine for vitamin D has proven to help with cancer recovery. We know that of course too much sun should be avoided to prevent the opposite effect. Now here’s what’s interesting – vitamin C stimulates the production of melanin in the skin, the body’s natural defense against UVA radiation. Yet again another way vitamin C defends your health. (The relationship between sunshine, vitamin D, vitamin C, and cancer is a topic I cover extensively in my book, Infinity Health Manual.)
Another important topic to address here is that the most common disease of our modern world, is now autoimmune disease. (I cover this topic in Infinity Health Manual, too.) The fact is, autoimmune disease affects at least thirty million people in the United States. That’s over eight percent of our population. And it’s rapidly increasing. As you may know autoimmune disease is when the immune system turns and attacks the body itself. In addition to the common allergies, some of the well-known auto-immune diseases include type-1 diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, multiple sclerosis, thyroid disease, asthma, eczema, psoriasis, and celiac. The common denominator is the body’s self-attack by the immune system.
Consider that just forty years ago, autoimmune disease was virtually non-existent. Interestingly, in third-world countries, it’s still virtually non-existent. It exists almost exclusively in developed countries. So what’s going on? The simple fact is, it’s greatly correlated with diet and lifestyle. Yes, in some cases it’s genetic, but still, various nutritive protocols can be implemented to repair even broken genes.
How do we fix it?
Believe it or not, adding a few things to your diet and removing a few others is what most often saves the day. Mostly it’s about adding foods with the right nutrients that recover the intelligence of the immune system (like I mentioned, it’s largely about the neurological system) while cutting junk out. Note – another factor is toxic household items like cleaners and air-fresheners that are proven to weaken the immune system significantly, especially with long-term exposure. Some might think ‘boosting’ the immune system would be the exact wrong thing to do in the case of autoimmune disease, given the fact that the immune system is already aggressively attacking itself. But what you’re really doing is restoring your body’s instinctive healing wisdom.
A little-known culprit
In December of 2013, the FDA questioned soap companies to address the potential risks of using antibacterial soap and hand sanitizers on a regular basis. These products work by essentially obliterating all bacteria on your hands. Whereas the tried and true method of soap and water simply works by washing the harmful bacterias off. The active antibacterial agents (which absorbs through the skin) have been proven to be toxic due to killing the good bacteria in the body, and ironically, when used on a long-term basis, weakens the immune system. On top of this, there’s no evidence that antibacterial soap products are any more effective at preventing illness than washing with plain soap and water. Still, the FDA is working to ban these products.
And Yet Another
For the same reasons as hand sanitizers, antibiotics and some vaccines are now linked to reducing long-term immunity! What an irony! The data are real. These culprits kill the bad bacteria while also killing the good bacteria we need in order to maintain a healthy immune system. Yes, antibiotics may play a role when the situation could be dire and life threatening. Even still, after utilized, there needs to be some follow-up damage control with a healing diet and lifestyle. Most important is replacing the intestinal flora that gets wiped out with the use of antibiotics. This is the role of a probiotic supplement (which is why it’s an important part of the Infinity Greens formula).
There’s some psychology to it, too
There’s another very important topic we need to address when it comes to maintaining a healthy immune system: stress. Stress is essentially anything that puts strain on the mind or body. This includes many things such as lack of sleep, sedentary lifestyle, poor diet, and even anxiety and anger – essentially anything that makes us feel less at ease. The reality is that periods of these challenges are all naturally part of life. Stress hormones, like cortisol, aren’t always a big deal since the body knows how to remedy imbalances. But on a regular basis these hormones can have as much wear and tear as junk food.
The idea here is how we handle stress, like taking action to remove the common stressful circumstances that come up in daily life. Another vitally important part of reducing the effects of stress is exercise. Here’s why: stress produces adrenaline. Adrenaline unused makes the body weaker and the mind irritable and more vulnerable to low moods, too. So the idea is to exorcise the adrenaline, booting it out of the body to leave everything stronger at the end, including your natural ability to cope with stress in the future. The big picture here is to live a life that reduces the stressors and incorporates restorative anti-stress elements such as a healthy diet, time in the outdoors, exercise, and spending more time with joyous companions.
Here I’d like to zero in on the simplest and most effective way to supercharge your immune system –
The highest vitamin C foods are by far the most effective nutritive support for a strong immune system, fit to defend against invasive diseases. And what are these highest vitamin C foods? Camu berry, Acerola cherry, and Amla berry – the very ingredients of Infinity-C. The addition of astragalus root, shilajit, and ginger then further advances the performance of Infinity-C. These are the reasons I am totally confident Infinity-C truly is the most immunity supercharging product in the world. Did you know the Infinity-C Bars have a full serving of Infinity-C, too?
Infinity-C delivers 1000mg of real vitamin C per serving exclusively from plant foods for a 100% absorption rate. Alternatively, ascorbic acid, lab-produced from genetically modified corn (10-15% absorption), is what comprises the other all-too-common products marketed as vitamin C. Amazingly, just one tablespoon of Infinity-C contains the vitamin C content of fourteen oranges, making Infinity-C an incomparable immune-boosting powerhouse. And simply mixed in water the taste is great. As an alternative to the drink mix option of Infinity-C, we also provide Infinity-C in capsule form which is perfect for getting the supercharge even when traveling.
The power of a healthy immune system is awesome and massively underestimated – now needed more needed than ever. My hope is this is where Infinity-C comes to the rescue.
