My Favourite Tools to help Boost Your Immune System
~ Ingest high quality anti-oxidants. By either eating lots of healthy super fruits like; blueberries, raspberries, goji berries, blackberries. Or, in supplement form like Forever Green’s – “Aim“, “Azul” or “ImmuneEyes”. Each of these are in a whole food form supplement.
~ Take a minimum of 50 billion/day of a quality multi strain Probiotic, to boost the healthy bacteria in your digestive system.
~ If you or your body is really rundown and exhausted, a high quality, natural form, B vitamin like Solarstrips, will re-energize you!
~ Vitamin D is a must for us in the chilly, grey north, I recommend a minimum of 4000 mg per day during the winter months. You can also purchase a Natural Sunlight lamp to use daily.
~ Try taking an immune boosting complex such as; “ImmuneEyes”, Colostrum, or Mushroom blends.
~ Eat and drink lots fresh, organic and GMO Free vegetables, to ensure a higher potassium and a nutrient rich diet.
~ Eliminate congestive foods like Sugar, Dairy and Alcohol!
~ Oligotherapy – A natural antiviral and antibacterial, is silver colloidal/AG water and can be used early during an acute illness by taking a teaspoon every few hours. Other colloidal minerals that are great to have on hand are Cuprum-CU, which is good for infections and inflammations and Gold/AU, which helps stimulate the bodies natural defense. You can take these in combination or singularly, by taking 6-12 drops of each in a glass of water daily.
~ Herbs such as Echinacea, Goldenseal, Oregon grape, Astragalus, Wild indigo and Picrorrhiza, all help to boost ones immune system. Herbs are a highly concentrated bio-chemical substance and as such should be used carefully and not in excess. The most effective way to take these, is in extract/tincture form; 8-12 drops in a small amount of water, several times a day.
~ Oregano oil can be taken directly on the tongue and will kill most infections directly on contact. Be prepared for it’s strong taste! *Please note that all herbs are to be taken for short periods of time with a break in between. They are highly stimulatory and if taken for too long can be taxing on your body and potentially create a disturbance.
~ Garlic, preferably fresh and raw, kills everything; bad bacteria, virus and fungus, but don’t expect too much intimate contact with your loved ones while taking it!
Some extra advice I give all my clients;
First, make sure that you are eating according to your own body ecology. Avoid foods that weaken your system, such as sugar, dairy, soda, alcohol and everything non self supporting, as these will only congest your body further, especially DAIRY. Add healthy green super foods like kale and broccoli, along with lots of fresh veggies and antioxidant rich fruits or supplements as mentioned above. Finding food sources that are grown close to home, will guarantee they are full of healthy enzymes. I always freeze a ton of local berries in the summer, so I have lots to use in the winter.
Second, De-Stress! Stress on any level, is one of the biggest factors in how healthy you will be overall. Learn to recognize what is causing you to feel overloaded and find ways to release this stress.

If your emotional or mental stress is high and long standing then be sure to book a session with me today using this link – One on One Consultation, and we can discuss natural ways to process and properly release these stressors.
One of the easiest ways to lessen your stress daily, is to do some deep breathing exercises. Remember that it is the OUT breath that is the relaxing one, so be sure to make it longer than the in-breath.
Also, take a few minutes every morning and night to focus on one positive thought or aspect in your life that brings you joy. It doesn’t have to be very big or complicated, as long as it bring levity and joy to your heart when you think of it, is all that matters.
Try some gentle stretches or yoga moves during the day when you feel you are getting tense, these can help to reprogram your muscles to let go. Some people find that Tai chi or yoga help while others find more intense physical activity is necessary to discharge the tension at the cellular level. Do whatever feels right for you, any movement that is positive and life affirming is good.
Going and getting some physical body work, like massage, cranial sacral, Myofacial massage or Rolfing, will also go a long way to releasing held tension that can, over time weaken your immune system.
Aside from de-stressing, be sure to get proper sleep and hydration when you are feeling run down! Lots of water with lemon, warm or cold is beneficial.
Last but certainly not least, if you feel like you’re fighting an infection, try these homeopathic remedies. They are always a must in every natural healing pharmacy. Both are also in my unique dynamic combinations seen below in my winter survival kit.
Oscillicoccinum – is a great all around infection remedy, used for septic or sluggish blood and lymph.
Aconite and gelsemium are both great remedies for the beginning phase of most infections. Aconite is more directed towards when it feels like it has hit you quickly and out of the blue. Whereas, gelsemium is when you feel it coming on slowly and feel run down and tired with it.
