We are writing this newsletter in mid-February before we leave for our vacation. It will magically arrive while we are in Argentina – one of the true benefits of modern technology! We are not sure what will transpire while we are away, but what we are writing now concerning what we have learned from the coronavirus should be true regardless.
There is no doubt that the coronavirus is a deadly virus – it is highly contagious, people are dying, and governments are trying to figure out how to contain it. This is a scenario we have seen before – the swine flu, SARS, Ebola, etc. Being in the natural health world we receive urgent information and commentaries from a variety of “natural health experts.” On the extreme side is the “Health Ranger” Mike Adams (Natural News.Com and Health Ranger Store), not as extreme there is Dr. Joseph Mercola (Dr. Mercola Coronavirus Page), and there is the official government position of the CDC (CDC Coronavirus Information Page).
All these sites share a variety of information leaving us to sort out what is “true” and what is “fake news” – this we would characterize as not a benefit of modern technology! As always, we encourage you to gather information from all sides of the spectrum and then make an informed conclusion. We have made ours and here it is. Well, actually it is found below!
While the best way to stay healthy is to support your immune system, one of the best ways to be healthy is to not be overweight. We have encouraged all our clients who would like to reduce their inflammation and toxicity, whether they would like to lose a few pounds or more, to consider the SHAPE ReClaimed program. You can review the health risks of being overweight and the benefits of the SHAPE program below.
And last, but not least, our good friend Ann Louise Gittleman’s excellent latest book, Radical Metabolism, is now available in paperback. For more details read below.
The Best Way to Stay Healthy is to Support Your Immune System
As we said above, whatever you believe is the cause of these new viruses, they do exist with deadly potential. So, the question we must ask is what can we/you do about it? What is in our control and what is not? The good news is that the answer is quite simple, and all the experts agree – support your immune system. The stronger your immune system, the greater likelihood you can resist and battle these and all other invaders!
We have written about the immune system in the past. For a basic overview of the immune system click here: The Immune System Basics.
Back in 2014 we looked at the importance of Calcium, Vitamin C, Vitamin D, and essential fatty acids for immune system health. We recommended several Standard Process supplements and natural food sources as well to boost your immune system. You can review that article here: Support Your Immune System.
In the November 2017 newsletter we suggested how to prepare yourself for the cold and flu season. Here we spoke of Congaplex Chewable and Andrographis Complex from Standard Process and MediHerb. To review that click here: Immune System Boosters.
And more recently we have asked the question, “Is everyone around you getting sick?” Here we expanded our recommended immune system support supplements to also include Herbal Throat Spray from MediHerb, Vitamin C Camu Camu from Physica Energetics, and Ginger Tussin, Silvercillin Spray, and Immunoberry from Designs for Health. You can read the full article here: Is Everyone Around You Getting Sick?.
The Best Way to Stay Healthy is to Be at a Normal Weight
As you recall from our previous articles being overweight is a major health issue. If you are overweight, you have a significantly greater risk factor for several health issues including: breathing, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, osteoarthritis, gallstones, Type 2 diabetes, gout, high blood pressure, heart disease, kidney disease, sleep apnea, pregnancy difficulties, and cancer. To review this article discussing the risks associated with being overweight click here: Your Weight and Your Health.
Our recommended solution to get your health back in line is SHAPE ReClaimed. This program is effective because it takes into consideration five factors that are not addresses by other programs.
- Bioindividuality – the program is tailored specifically for you.
- Starvation – you feed your body to health.
- Nutrient Deficiencies – you eat real foods full of vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients.
- Food Sensitivities – the majority of foods you may have reactions to are eliminated so they do not prevent your cleansing process.
- Metabolic Imbalances – during the program we may detect underlying issues that have inhibited your cleansing process.
