With the cooler weather comes the urge to get out the fall/winter clothes. It is also common to cleanse your body when the weather changes. Many people do a detoxification of their body in the spring and then again in the fall. This keeps the body young, vibrant, healthy, and strong.
Regular liver and gall bladder cleanses eliminate the build up of stones and old bile that can cause stones. Many people who do regular cleansing report that they do not get sick as often as they did before cleansing. Though toxins are generally eliminated from your body through your liver, over a period of many years, small accumulations can build up into problems causing headaches, tiredness, lack of energy, and inflammation in the organs.
Your immune system is on the lookout for foreign invaders 24-7. This includes germs, cell defects, and mutant cells. The immune system has the ability to remember harmful invaders and how to destroy them. Your immune cells are the hardest working and fastest growing cells in the body. Much of the work is done in the intestinal tract. “Over 80 percent of the body’s immunity is built in the intestinal tract by the friendly bacteria balance that resides there.” (natural news) When we are born, the body begins to populate our gut flora and immune system starts an inventory of good and bad cells. The body continues to process and manage this inventory throughout life.
How do Antibiotics affect the immune system?
Cold viruses are always present and most Americans suffer from a cold at least once or twice a year, if not more. Now that the kids are back to school and cooler weather is upon us, it is time to remind you about avoiding colds and flu. The cold and flu season is upon us. The best way to avoid colds and flu is to keep our immune systems strong.
1-Good Food – A nourished body = a healthy and smart kid!
In order to navigate the twists and turns of school, nutrition is the key to healthy, smart kids. Kids should understand the difference between good foods and bad foods. Many use the traffic light model with success. “Green light foods are good for you. Eat as much of them as you like. These include fruits, vegetables, whole grain products, nuts, organic meats, and dairy. Red light foods should not be eaten, like corn syrup, diet foods with Nutrasweet, caffeine products, and foods with artificial colors and flavors. Yellow light foods are those you should slow down on, like desserts, processed white flour products, and juice.”
Contact your local, state, and federal representatives and tell them to stop this dangerous practice. It is estimated that 100 travelers per year get cancer from this “low level radiation.”
We need to band together to ban this invasive, demeaning activity. How many bombers has it stopped? It did not stop the Detroit bomber who used powdered explosives. Fewer people die in the air then almost any other cause of death from transportation. This is not about keeping us safe. This is about destroying our civil liberties.
Do you have a Candida or mold infection or allergy? Symptoms include sneezing, congestion, itchy or watery eyes, a persistent cough, or a tickle at the back of your throat. Do you clear your throat a lot? Even asthma can result in those who do not normally have asthma. Do you crave sweets or feel chronically fatigued? Do you suffer from brain fog? Headaches? Dandruff? These can all be symptoms of mold allergy responses.
If you have found mold in your bathroom or bedroom (the most likely places), you will need to handle its effects. You can also find mold in air conditioning systems, face creams, basements, and anywhere you smell a “musty odor.” Many people think that if they just clean up the mold in their environment, then their work is done, but mold throws off the delicate balance of the body. And where you have a mold exposure, you have a Candida overgrowth. They go hand in hand.
On the outside of the body, you can find mold or fungus on finger or toenail infections, thrush, and bumpy skin. If you have bumpy skin, you can kill the mold colonies with apple cider vinegar on a cotton swab. Unfortunately, most doctors receive very little training in mycology (the study of fungi and their effects) during medical school, often less than veterinarians. As a result, toxic mold exposure, use of antibiotics, swimming in chlorinated pools and other common activities can be overlooked as the cause of a patient’s health problems. Worse, recent studies point to fungus in the body as being the precursor to cancer.
Here are a few of the most common things that contribute to mold problems and Candida overgrowth
Exposure to pesticides. Pesticides kill bugs, including the colony in your gut. You do not have to eat them to be exposed.
Antibiotics. Used to kill disease-causing bacteria, antibiotics are very effective in killing normal, protective bacterial flora throughout the body.
Swimming in chlorinated pools. Copper and Silver Anodes, Salt water, and Chlorine are used in swimming pools and Jacuzzis to kill bacteria and algae. Just as these things kill bacteria in the water, they also kill the body’s normal bacterial flora. This is one of the reasons that I have designed my Oxygen Harmony™ pool system. It reduces chemical use by 90%. Visit Ideal Earth Water for more information.
Alcohol use (most often beer, wine and vodka). Frequent use of alcohol encourages the growth of yeast in the body.
Mercury and mercury fillings (silver amalgam fillings). Mercury has antibacterial, fungal-promoting effects.
Use of corticosteroids that turn off normal immune reactions leave a person without their natural defenses against fungi
Birth Control pills, injections, or patches. Women’s bodies naturally experience highs and lows of various hormones. Birth control pills, injections, or patches cause these hormones to become even, which encourages fungal growth. This may be why so many women on the pill experience more yeast infections than women who use other contraception.
If you need to handle mold in your environment, then send me an email and request my free MOLD Report. It will help you to clean up the mold without using chlorine bleach.
When I was a volunteer in 2005 after hurricane Katrina struck New Orleans, exposure to mold almost cost me my life, but I did some experimentation and healed myself. Since then, my wife and I have researched and tested anddeveloped our Candida Relief™ program. It rapidly helps return the body’s balance without a restrictive diet!
