Our everyday life can contribute greatly to a strong healthy immune system. How we live, how we take care of ourselves has much to do with being healthy. Building a strong immune system has to do with our survivability in this world. It has to do with whether we can defend ourselves against really serious degenerative illness.
A huge number of people die every day of cancer, of all different kinds of cancer, and degenerative illness is rampant around us. Certainly this is something we’d like to avoid, and the foundation gets laid with our everyday lifestyle.
The immune system is a complex system of hormones, messengers that tell the body when to fight, how to fight, what to fight when it needs to get rid of. We also want to have a clean system because that makes the immune system’s job much easier. Did you know that there are a number of everyday herbs and spices that have amazing protective qualities? Many everyday herbs and spices are protective against everything from cancer and heart disease, arthritis, immune system disorders and acute and viral illness such as herpes, common colds and flu.
Studies now show everyday herbs and spices, used for thousands of years in different cultures, can support health at a cellular level and help us resist and fight disease. They can help all the little parts of the immune system function better. When the immune system is functioning well, colds and flu can come along and we can turn our nose up at them. And so commonly people say, “Oh I’m sick what can I do, what pill I can take, what herb I can take, what can take to make this go away?”
Having poor health “go away” or having sickness “go away” is really a product of how we take care of ourselves from day to day, from meal to meal, from moment to moment. Whether fighting a degenerative illness or if you have a family member who is ill, or you just want to be well when colds and flu come along seasonally, cultivating a healthy lifestyle is the best protection you can get.
The high percentages of people dying of a degenerative illness are statistics we’d like to avoid. Looking down the road we all have great potential to be well. Get on a path to taking care of your health in a better way. Set up an exercise routine, increase drinking pure fresh water, shift your diet to whole natural organic foods including lots of herbs and spices and get plenty of rest.
