How To Create A Stronger Immune System By Dr. Eldon Dahl, Naturopath

Unlock The "Treasure Chest" of Healthy Living

We have all imagined finding a treasure chest; the very thought has our imaginations running wild. Unlocking the mystery of our immune system is much like seeking buried treasure--X may mark the spot, but knowing how to support our immune system may seem like navigating a maze.

Strengthening Our Shields 

We need a strong immune system to protect our health, and yet it is under constant attack--just knowing this fact is a source of stress, which impacts our immune system. Environmental toxins damage our immune system; even cleaning our clothes can be a source of toxins. Fabric softeners, dryer sheets, and laundry detergents contain hazardous chemicals, including two known carcinogens--acetaldehyde and benzene.

Fuel For Your Force Field

Maintaining a healthy immune system first requires a healthy diet and exercise. How-ever,we must also support our endocrine system because it works with the immune system. If the endocrine system, especially the thyroid and adrenal glands, and the liver are not working in harmony, it would be as if we had lost the compass in our search for immune support.

During the cold and flu season, when our endocrine and immune systems have to work overtime, the very moment my family feels under attack, we hit the bottles--and not the type you're thinking of. I am a true believer in homeopathic remedies. My family travels everywhere with homeopathic colloidal silver, an FDA-approved disinfectant,using it as a nasal spray and in the mouth for sore throats.

Supplements and Supports

Whether travelling in a crowded plane, breathing recycled air, or attending a sporting event with “Sneezy” and the other toxic dwarfs, my family has a favourite immune-boosting recipe that we have been using for years (see Recipe Box below).

RECIPE to Boost Your System
50 drops echinacea
20 drops goldenseal (anti-inflammatory and astringent)
20 drops bee propolis (antiseptic, antifungal, antiviral)
3 drops oil of oregano (antiviral and antiparasitic)
1 teaspoon (5 mL) calcium ascorbate (buffered vitamin C)
1 capsule P5P Complex

In addition to this formulation, I recommend reseeding your gut with a probiotic complex. Yogurt can serve this purpose. However, when I want to strengthen my immune system, I prefer knowing the potency, so I take a 10 billion human-strain probiotic capsule. The shelf-stable form works best with my family because once refrigerated, it's easy to forget all about it.

To support the thyroid gland, my family takes a homeopathic solution called Thyroid Support, which also supports the liver. Human growth hormone (HGH) also supports the immune system, but unlike injectable HGH, which can have negative side effects, my family uses a homeopathic version called HGH+, in which minute amounts of the active ingredient are potentized for a safe and effective remedy.
A treasure chest of health awaits those willing to seek the adventure. Happy discovery!
