Immune Boosting Strategy

Who needs scary movies anymore?

I know I don’t, as a recovered Germaphobe, all I have to do is turn on the news and BAM…niggling little fears of real life, creepy, crawly unseen threats start gnawing on my ‘oM shanti’ state of mind. 

 

While it can get really scary out there, there is a lot we can personally do to boost our immune system and support our body’s natural “Threat Protection” troops as our first line of defense.

We may still catch a few bugs, but our resiliency to them and our ability to recover will dramatically increase.

This is what I do when I feel that tell-tale tickle in the throat, general achey-ness or fatigue…

 

Become Aware ~ First I notice that I am not feeling well.  I might notice that I’m getting tired faster, feel grumpy, stiff, or stuffy and congested.  Because I know that my body never ever lies, it’s a great source of information.

So the next time you tune in and notice something is not just right, celebrate. Yep, listening to your body is one of the strongest things you can do for your health and happiness.  You know your body  better than anyone, even your doctor, so pay attention to it and treat it right.

 

Think Positive ~ Then I consciously choose to stay well .  Do you remember that tag line, “a mind is a terrible thing to waste”?  Well, it even more true when it comes to the state of health you want to enjoy.  When our body speaks to us through sensations or symptoms we either a see this as a choice to stay as well as possible or we make a choice for the status quo.

 

Be Proactive ~ Then I take action. When my I feel something coming on, I start the day lots of H2O-bviously Better Skin (water), even more than usual, and follow that with a power breakfast of greens and protein.  I get my essential oils out, the Lemon and a synergistic essential oil Protective Blend.  I use the Lemon throughout the day for it’s natural detoxifying quality and I drop a few drops of Protective Blend in the back of my throat every 2 hours because it’s super high in anti-oxidants..

I eat only foods that I know would support my body and stay away from the white dietary devils, sugar, flour, and processed dairy. Bone broth is one of my favorite healing foods because it’s soothing, nourishing, warm and hydrating.

 

I also go into active-inaction. I rest and allow myself to be quiet and still. I take a nourishing bath with Essential Oils and Dead Sea Salts.  I keep warm and don’t allow myself to get chilled feet or hands.  I don’t rush to do anything, even if it takes all day, that is okay by me cause I am T-I-R-E-D.  It takes a lot of energy to for the body to heal and even more to ward off microbial treats.  If at all possible, I spend time cuddling with my hubby.  (bonus hint here – cuddling boosts your immunity).

 

When you know that life is going to be more stressful…like that upcoming wedding, adult kids move back or parents in need of parenting, a sick spouse, lots of travel, moving house or a job change…be sure that you tune in to what your body is saying.  Yes, it’s a balancing act and balance is dynamic.

Balance is fluid, supple, agile and it shifts in response to the circumstance…stiff, static and rigid balance, sweet one, there really is no such a thing.
