The easiest and best ways to boost your immunity naturally

  • Avoid refined sugars:  Candies, chocolate bars,  white, brown, cane, berry or beet sugar.  Do not eat sweets and use sweeteners minimally in cooking.
  • Got to bed early.  Your immune system works at its optimum during deep sleep between 12 am and 2 am.  If you are not in deep sleep at this time, you will not reap these benefits.  If you have trouble sleeping, contact me.
  • Avoid alcohol.  Alcohol also will depress your immunity.  Limit alcoholic beverages.
  • Contrast Hydrotherapy.  An amazing boost for you immunity.  If you have a sauna, get nice and hot in your sauna first, then have a cold splash, shower or a roll in the snow.   Repeat this several times.   It works better than you would imagine and will leave you feeling energized and relaxed.
  • Fever – a slight elevation in internal body temperature will help your immune system work at its optimum.  You can simulate a fever by taking a hot bath or using a sauna.  Consider using the contrast hydrotherapy method.
  • Antioxidants – when the immune system is ramped up, it generates a lot of free radicals.  Antioxidants like those found in berries, turmeric, Vitamin C-rich foods like cabbage help quench the fire.



Ways to strengthen the resilience and defenses of your respiratory system

  • Castor oil – applied to the mucosal surfaces (e.g. inside the nose or eyes – use a dropper or Q-tip) provides a protective barrier and prevents growth of bacteria, viruses and fungi.
  • Breathing exercises – I have been a long-standing advocate for breathing exercises because it is something fundamental to which we all have access and is profound in its effects.    There are many types of breathing exercises with different types of benefits.   Contact me if you would like to be join a breathing exercises webinar.
