THE IMMUNE SYSTEM TONE-UP, WHY JUST AUTUMN AND WINTER?
WHY NOT YEAR ROUND?
Get colds and flus regularly? No need for that! California movie star healthfooders NEVER get viruses and they're around crowds of people all day and night just like you. Try out a few of the standard 'healthfood nut' dietary limitation regimen these stars with their HEALTH GURUS use and you and your family will get your immune system into peak efficiency and defeat viruses and allergies. And that defeats AGING.
It is simplicity itself. You banish viruses with an ALKALINE DIET, which means noshing a tad LESS of the foods that throw us over into ACID REACTION PH . The goal should be to get the body manufacturing plenty of white blood cells (lymphocytes) --- not only to fight Spring pollen but also to carry us over the season of blasting air conditioning (summer colds) and into the autumn chills triggering the flu and cold season, as well as the bacteria, viruses and germs that will appear when the winter planet gets chilly and toxic and everyone is inside, sneezing in your face.
Bacteria, germs and viral colds can only ‘have at us’ when the immune system is DOWN. The body needs a good immune system to resist allergic responses. It gets that from NOT HAVING its allergies triggered. The allergic response means body cannot produce its famous cell-cops, its nuclear cowboys, --the white blood cells. The body can only create these tiny, white ‘soldier’ lymphocytes when it is in balance, i.e. slightly alkaline and well oxygenated. How do we accomplish this magical military draft which will be in our favor? Good life habits (sleep,) is one way but another is through diet.
All year round, be sure to use an alkaline diet full of alkaline reaction fruits and vegetables (all of them, except potatoes, which are acid reaction) and steer away from those acid reaction meats. If you use slices of dead bodies as food, oxygenate them as they go through your body with equal weight dark green salad. If you use eggs, lots of arugula, watercress or cilantro to garnish. Then do you want to clog your bowels with sticky heavy starches, dairy foods and sweets? No. After every savory meal, have a sip of your homemade low-sugar citrus-ade to knock out the craving for dessert. ( Every few days juice citrus, grapefruit, lemons, whatever..add water and honey, keep in a handy bottle in fridge. It just takes two tablespoons after a meal to lay the dessert craving to rest.) The French would say it 'cleanses the palate.'
Whenever we eat baked goods made of white flour, you’ll notice mucus in your sinuses, and while you sleep, find you suddenly get stuffy. And in the morning, you’ll find you’re blowing your nose a lot. That is a gluten reaction, one that will have its allergies kicked off all day. Carpets, pollen will bother you. Your whole immune system is off balance and disease can get at you that day. See, it has to do with what’s clogging the body from last night.
Life without pasta, you say? Life without milk in my coffee, life without ice cream? No way. Get gluten free pasta at the healthfood store, see what is main ingredient, then find it cheaper at discount house or supermarket. Make your own ice cream of the really delicious sutff: Pineapple, banana, coconut cream, honey to taste. Always keep a pint handy in freezer. SUBSTITUTION of the really delicious and inexpensive for the costly cream-based Ben & Jerry's is the key. MORE BETTER LONGER CHEAPER! HEALTHIER!
Occasionally (just not in pollen season, or during flu epidemics) you can have a few of these clog foods. But once you notice that the day after a binge, you feel not allergies kick in, feel a dip in your vital powers, maybe the start of a sniffles, or a slightly swollen throat gland, or, if there are problem nerves in your teeth, nerves lying too close to the inlay, they will hurt so badly you’ll think you have an infected tooth when it is really just a touchy nerve, --- if any of the above starts to happen, you are going to want to quit the foods that the body is allergic to.
If you can, get the tests made. It might be that pork is just not tolerated by your family. In that case, say goodbye to it. Pork, Beef, Chicken, Wheat, Soy…. dairy, these are the most frequent allergens in America. Peanuts. Eggplant and in particular its purple skin. Also tomatoes, bell pepper and potatoes. These all belong to the nightshade family and all are allergens. Cows drop dead if they eat any of those plants out in a field.
To find out if you’re allergic, quit that item all then re-introduce suspected allergens slowly, a month later, waiting to see reactions. You may get stiff knees, stiff fingers, joints. If red bell peppers or tomatoes give you that reaction, you want to shy away from them, but if you’re NOT allergic, they’re a good POWERHOUSE of VITAMIN C, being up there with citrus and guavas!
If not allergic to them, when you want to do an Immune System Tune-up without costly allergy testing, and major diet realignment, twice or three times a day, use foods rich in Vitamin C and Bioflavenoids. This would be summer fruits, particularly citrus, guava, cherries and red bell pepper. A citrus snack in the morning, fruit after lunch, a salad with red bells at night. (Citrus has to be very ripe, and only organic citrus is as commercial producers pick too early.)
The most Vitamin C you can get without a special permit is from that treasured, reliable member of the English garden ---magical Rose Hips. What a wonder these are and how simple to find! You can go into any garden in Fall and pick dozens of those red balls that grow on all the rose bushes. Nibble a few and watch a sore throat disappear in hours! Or, walk the neighborhood. Pebbles needs walking, put him on a leash and pick rose hips from all the neighbor’s bushes. You’ll do their plants a favor, they are more likely to have some more blooms appear on those leaves before the first chill. Also, the more time bushes spend without cherries ripening, the more time and energy they can dedicate to getting ready for next year’s growth.
When searching for this magical rose fruit, remember, the redder, plumper the better. When they start to wither like raisins, their power is diminished. Store these fresh, highly perishable fruits in the fridge (I store mine in the egg rack). Wash and eat a few daily. They will not last more than a month that way, as fridge dehydrates them. For longer times, put them in a jar in the fridge, very tight lid, and use a desiccant, found in a vitamin jar, so they won’t get humid and rot.
You should go get a few Rosa rugosa plants (any rose catalogue) and put them in your garden, Then, when they’re a few years old and you get a pound or two of rosehips, make JAM. Cut all the meat from the seed pod with a sharp knife, boil with sugar and the outer skins of oranges, lemons, the way you make marmalade. Keep these jars in the freezer.
Have rose hip/citrus jam on toast all winter and you’ll never get a cold as your immune system will never DIP. You may think ascorbic acid or common Vitamin C will do the job, but it is tough on stomach linings, which will eventually affect your digestion!
It’s easy to know when our immune system dips. We get lip herpes, cold sores, cankers. Any teeth that have a slightly bad nerve will get much more painful as bacteria is able to multiply there. Lymph glands get swollen, body feels chilled more than usual and hands and feet are cold. Joints ache and all that means that some food allergies have kicked in.
ROSE HIPS will pull your Immune system out of a dip. Hips are tasty, crunchy, sweet, slightly sour and bitter and the highest Vit C source on the planet. To eat raw, take a bite of the flesh, avoiding the central seed packet, chew it like gum, salivating it, swallowing the juices, then spitting out the chaff and skin. Go through four or five in a sitting. I eat them while typing or gardening.
Plant the seeds that lie in the center of the pod in your garden and you’ll get beautiful rose bushes in completely new varieties, not true to the parent plant!
IMMUNE TONING HERBS: get Echinacea, Goldenseal at your healthfood store. Make a dark tea by opening 4 - 6 capsules into a pot of water at ‘tea-making temperature’ (between a ‘bath and a boil’, about 155 degrees.) Cover, let steep or brew. Never boil tea herbs! Steep!
If you can find wild indigo, Boneset, prickly ash bark, Thuja leaf. St John’s, Lomatium, Hyssop, Lemon Balm at healthfood store herb rack, either in bulk or in capsule, add these to the tea mix.
If allergies are a problem, get a jar of RAW certified organic honey from beekeepers in your neighborhood. Have a few tablespoons daily, in your raw fruits, juices or on toast. (To find a beekeeper Google BEES supplies honey as search terms and add in your neighborhood name.)
Last of all, for immune system tone up there are the glandulars, actual animal gland extracts. “Thymus.” Pregnolone and Progesterone. Specialty pharmacies offer them through mail order. Google up info. I don't think you'll need them though if you are on an allergen free diet. Thymus you can buy from the butcher, most delicious meat that exists, called SWEETBREADS.
HINDU TRICKS TO PREVENT IMMUNE SYSTEM DIP, DEAL WITH COLDS: Oregano seed tea at first symptom, which nobody has unless they grow oregano every year, so start doing this. Harvest your own seeds, store in freezer. The Indian aurevedic doctors have also used Ginger root tea for its carminative effect. (i.e. it makes you warm and glowing.) If you have an ulcer tendency, don’t use mustard, black pepper or ginger in any form, however.
For strong tummies, then, there’s YOGI TEA which uses ginger and buffers it with milk. Try this terrific recipe from YOGI BHAJAN of New Delhi and Los Angeles, Santa Fe and about 200 other cities worldwide.
YOGI TEA: Boil ½ gallon water with 6 cinnamon sticks, crushed, l5 cardamon pods, whacked with hammer until broken up, a dozen whole cloves, a thumb of ginger, peeled, sliced; a dozen black pepper corms. Simmer spices 10 minutes, low heat, then add 1 tsp blk tea, 1 cup milk, ¼ cup honey, simmer 1 minute then serve. When cool, store extra in huge glass jar in fridge, heat as required. DELICIOUS!
Other heavy duty SNIFFLES/ COLDS curing HERB TEAS can be made of echinacea, goldenseal, osha, spilanthes, yerba santa, horseradish, elder, watercress, wild indigo. Take this mixture while sitting in bed, watching television because it doesn’t taste so great that you actually might want to drink it. In fact, it will knock you off your feet! So you need an A movie to concentrate on!
For red, swollen eyes, make an actual eye wash of ‘eyebright’ herb or add some of it to your tea mixture, too.
FOR PROBLEM TEETH- Allergen foods increase INFLAMMATION around little infections in the teeth. You'll feel the pain. So go pure. Pain goes. Meanwhile, Lay cloves against the gumline. Use a piece of orange peel to hold it there. Set a heating pad against the cheek, AND, do all the above things to get immune system up and running. Add raw fully ripe citrus to your diet, with the pulp and a little pith to get VIT C saturating your jaw. Dentists today are really painless potters, and you want to find your guy!

WHAT ABOUT OTHER CONTAMINANTS? There are other things that stress and task the immune system, FOOD ADDITIVES, the aroma of fresh paint, chemicals in the air from tungsten heating elements in dryer, smog, toxins from new carpets, new lumber or wood which has additives, toxic pesticides, detergents in our clothing, (switch to borax), shampoo in our eyes, and flouride in toothpaste. (Switch to baking soda.) Dr. Hulda Clark’s book on environmental hazards is recommended reading as list is so long. Google her website for articles.
THE LAST and FINAL TIP: INCREASE YOUR BODY’S OXYGEN
1.) FRESH AIR. Don’t close yourself up in a heated home! Leave entry points for fresh air or, several times a day, air out the entire home, then shutter it again, re-heat the air. Be very watchful of carbon dioxide build-up from home furnaces. Have a carbon dioxide monitor, like a smoke detector, available at any hardware store for a ten spot. Nothing will run your immune sys into the basement like toxic gases! Never have a dryer on unvented. Tungsten heating elements produce toxins. Your coffee maker heats the water that way. TOSS IT.
2.) THE BEST IMMUNE SYSTEM TONER or OXYGENATOR IS SLEEP. It is the fastest way to erase those dark circles which mean oxygen lack. (Heart insufficiency or heart murmur patients are easy to read by holistic doctors, because they have unusual, dark circles under their eyes.) Use soporific herbal teas to increase your sleep an hour or two. Valerian, skullcap, vervaine, hops, passionflower brewed into tea, sipped an hour before normal bedtime will put you down earlier and leave no morning grog which MELATONIN does. Calcium, Magnesium and niacin in small amounts with the tea aid it in working. Healthfood stores are full of wonderful herbs to relax and induce sleep and these can be opened and brewed into tisane for quick assimilation. TIsanes based on leaves are never boiled. You turn off fire and steep.
3.) VITAMINS: Vit E is a good system oxygenator but it must be taken with food that has oils in it to be absorbed. Get some CoEnzyme Q-10, Vit 15, and Green Magma, spirulina, algae. Take a Vit E cap with your salad that has good olive oil dressing on it.
4.) TONING FOODS: Many foods actually have high oxygen in them. Drink freshly made Green juices, a good mixture being collards, parsley/cress in a celery base, with pineapple, carrot or apple to sweeten. High oxygen food in meals would be juicy salads made of watercress, spinach, raw, dark green growing things. High oxygen proteins would be bean sprouts and avocado in a romaine/ spinach salad with sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds and pignolas on top.
Try these tips. No more will you be at the whim of fate. Learning to activate the immune system at a moment’s notice will give you ability to achieve a healthy body, no tooth pain and no allergic response to ANYTHING.
