Cancer Self-help will boost your immune system.
Good morning, lovely you!
What an absolutely beautiful morning it is here in Massachusetts. It is still a little humid but the sky is clear, birds and cicadas are chirping and buzzing, and a gentle breeze is tinkling my windchimes. Mornings like these are good for the soul! They are also good for your immune system and Cancer Self-Help and Self-
And that’s what I want to talk with you about today. Because true healing is healing that happens without medicine created in a lab somewhere. True healing happens when the body’s own immune system is allowed to do its job.
Why is it that so much of our medical community think that suppressing the immune system in order to “cure” someone of something makes ANY SENSE? Cancer Your immune system is your NUMBER ONE DEFENSE against viruses, bacteria, and other pathogens. Every second of every day from the minute you are born, your immune system is protecting you from disease and damage.
But your immune system does so much more than protect you from getting a cold or the flu. In fact, studies have conclusively shown that special immune cells stimulate cells in your heart muscle so it keeps on pumping and maintains a steady beat. Other immune cells clean out dead brain cells after a stroke and secrete special chemicals that help your brain to repair the damage.
So it shouldn’t come as any surprise to us that our immune systems fights off cancerous and pre-cancerous cells on a regular basis without our even knowing it.
So why then do some people develop cancer?
Because their immune system becomes compromised after years of eating poorly, not exercising, smoking, drinking too much, not getting enough sleep, being stressed out of their minds, taking prescription meds for depression, etc., etc., etc…
Instead of bombarding an already compromised immune system with drugs, chemo, and radiation doesn’t it make more sense to support the immune system so it can heal the body like it was designed to do with more cancer-fighting foods and cancer Self-help
“The immune system is critical in fighting cancer,” says Stephen Lynch, MD, Primary Care and Intake Physician at one of the Cancer Treatment Centers of America near Phoenix. “We have an immune system that is designed to recognize native and non-native cells that can harm us.”
We need to do everything we can to keep our immune systems healthy so that we never develop disease in the first place. And if disease does take hold, it’s critical to support your immune system, not suppress it, so it can heal your body.
Cancer Self-help will boost your immune system.
With this in mind, here are 5 ways you can begin to support and boost your immune system.
- Probiotics and Prebiotics
Did you know that 80% of your immune system is located in your gut? If your gut isn’t healthy, you’re not healthy. Period.
To get your gut in the best shape possible, you’ve got to make sure you give it enough good bacteria. This is where probiotics come in. You can take a probiotic supplement, but I am a fan of eating fermented foods like kefir, kimchi, and sauerkraut. In fact, you can pretty much ferment any vegetable you want. It’s easy and so good for you!
Through processed food, harmful water, plastics, cleaning chemicals, medications and on and on, we are exposed to toxins nearly 24/7. And most of these toxins move into your intestines and make themselves at home. You can support the health of your immune system by performing a colon cleanse. Cleaning out your gut first will not only get rid of all of the “bad” stuff, but will also set up a nice environment where those probiotics, or good bacteria, will feel right at home.
- Colloidal Silver
Colloidal silver has a long history of use as an immune booster and a defense against harmful pathogens. Our ancestors were using colloidal silver to purify water, keep wounds free from bacteria, and many more medical uses.
Colloidal silver has gotten a lot of bad press in recent years, spreading the myth that use of colloidal silver will cause your skin to turn blue. When used properly, this simply cannot happen. It is just the greedy ‘powers that be’ trying to keep affordable and effective natural treatments out of our hands. Colloidal is a wonderful natural product that can kill off bad bacteria in your gut and help the good guys thrive. Do your own research and find a reputable manufacturer and follow directions.
- Reduce Your Levels of Stress
I know. It’s a lot easier said than done. But stress is literally killing us and we need to find ways to handle it better. For me, I began meditating soon after I was diagnosed with malignant cancer and I maintain my practice to this day and highly recommend it.
Exercise, music therapy, and spending more time in nature are also great ways to handle stress. And it goes without saying that now is the time to cut out as much stress as possible. Do NOT give any more time or energy to toxic relationships or situations.
- Get More Sleep
I cannot stress the importance of quality sleep enough. Sleep is when your entire body can fix what’s wrong. Your immune system absolutely NEEDS enough sleep (7-9 hours each night) to be able to fight off pathogens and cancerous cells.
I want to say before I let you go for the day, that taking care of your immune system should be your number one priority right now. There are many pieces to the “healing from cancer and other diseases puzzle”, and this is one of the biggest pieces.
Okay, I am going to go enjoy this beautiful day and I hope wherever you are today that it is beautiful in every way.
Sending love and light…
