Understanding the Immune System

Your immune system is a network of cells and organs that surveys your body for foreign substances, then responds to neutralize them as needed. Healthy immune function includes both physical barriers and specialized cell activity. In general, the immune system is on the job to keep the body in a state of wellness… and it works around the clock!

A healthy immune system is one that is neither over-stimulated nor under-stimulated. Various factors can contribute to immune imbalance: stress, lack of sleep, inadequate fruit and vegetable consumption, lack of exercise, or excessive exercise. So on the other hand, a healthy lifestyle can help your immune system stay balanced—think stress management, adequate restful sleep, a varied diet that includes plenty of produce, and regular moderate exercise.

Nutrients for Immune Support

In addition to leading a healthy lifestyle, vitamin and mineral formulations from New Chapter can support immune function and overall health and wellness.

*Vitamin C is a favorite vitamin for immune support.* New Chapter’s Activated C Food Complex delivers a probiotic-cultured form of Vitamin C that’s gentle on the stomach.

*Zinc for immune support, with complementary Elderberry, organic Eleuthero root, and organic Astragalus.

*Black Elderberry fruit has an extensive history of being used in the early stages of seasonal immune challenges.

Mushrooms for Immune Support

Mushrooms have long been recognized for their key role in supporting the immune system, especially Reishi—abundant in New Chapter’s LifeShield Immune Support.

Mushrooms and the Flu

The potential for mushrooms to fight influenza is being examined following United States research suggesting the body’s natural immune response against viral infections and tumours is boosted through the consumption of white button mushrooms. Eating more mushrooms may be a simple, natural way to boost the immune system to prevent colds and flu this winter. Although most varieties of mushrooms have immune stimulating properties, maitake, shiitake, and reishi are three of the best.

There are many natural remedies that will raise your immunity to the Swine Flu and other viral and bacterial diseases. Many people do not have immunity to the current strain of Swine Flu. This is not unusual because most viruses alter as the virus season goes along. Most people will not become sick because the issue is not the virus but SUSCEPTIBILITY.

It is interesting to note that not once in all the media broadcasts have we heard any mention of building natural immunity. Fortunately, we do not have to sit back and listen to the news about swine flu feeling helpless and anxious. We can be proactive by simply nourishing ourselves and our families.

Household Toxins

I have been diagnosed with Systemic Lupus and survived. I feel very, very strongly that part of my recovery was related to the fact that God, without my knowing it, removed chemicals like chlorine from my home and my life.
