Health Update - Super Immunity


 
Dear Living Fuel Family,
 
The flu and human immune system have been front and center in this week’s headlines.  We are getting numerous inquiries about how people can protect themselves from succumbing to the flu and other immune challenges. We believe that the following information will be important to you as well.
 
Our bodies are masterfully crafted with an elegant and complex immune system, and given the right raw materials, the body can do miraculous things that even modern medicine cannot accomplish.   It is well known that a strong immune system is critical to avoiding and being overcome by pathogenic viruses and bacteria.  Research confirms that the Standard American Diet (SAD) combined with poor sleep and a sedentary lifestyle is a recipe for compromised immunity.  People with good diets and active lifestyles are seldom sick and when they do become ill, recover much faster than their peers with poor diets and lifestyles.
 
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends the following to prevent the spread of germs and flu: “Get plenty of sleep, be physically active, manage your stress, drink plenty of fluids, and eat nutritious food.”  In my book Super Health: 7 Golden Keys to Unlock Lifelong Vitality, I go into great detail on how to understand and successfully manage these topics: Hydration, Nutrition, Exercise, Stress, Sleep, Environmental Hazards and Meditation and Prayer.
 
Here are a few high-impact steps you can take to support your immune system:
  • Increase your intake of Omega 3 (EPA & DHA) together with Vitamins D and A.  Most people are deficient in all three and all three have been shown to significantly enhance immunity.  Today’s video below focuses on this topic.  Supplementing your diet with these power nutrients is one of the simplest and most effective things you can do today to boost immunity.
  • Add 3+ servings of fresh vegetables per meal and some fresh fruit.
  • Replace a daily meal with a LivingFuel SuperSmoothie.
  • Eat plenty of garlic, onions, oregano, coconut, hot peppers and spices.  Extracts and oils of these nutrients can be extremely effective.
  • Wash your hands frequently.
  • Avoid places with high risk of infection such as doctor’s offices, clinics and hospitals.
  • Avoid flu shots and other vaccinations.
  • Avoid or minimize medications.
  • Avoid highly processed junk foods, fried foods and sugar.  This includes items such as sandwiches, baked goods, cookies, crackers, donuts, french fries, hot dogs, ice cream, pizza, potato chips, waffles and other processed foods that contain flour and/or sugar and many other impurities.  These types of foods are enemies of sustained energy, performance and immunity.  Recent research shows that a single serving of refined carbohydrates given to a lean, healthy young adult is enough to triple their inflammatory response to the surge in blood glucose.
  • Avoid overeating which can cause inflammation and compromise immunity.
