Do you have an auto-immune condition?
Would you like to avoid the debilitating side effects of antibiotics and prescriptions meds?
Side effects of antibiotics include:

- antibiotic resistant infections
In this article you will learn how to strengthen your immune system naturally so you can stop relying on antibiotics or meds and achieve SUPER-IMMUNITY.
"The Immune System is like a muscle that needs to be trained"
How to Train the Immune System
Achieving a strong immune system involves retraining the immune system to correctly identify foreign pathogens and avoid attacking the body's own cells.
An overactive or misguided immune system is what causes auto-immune conditions.
They root cause of a weak immune system lies in the gut. After all, 70% of the immune system lies in the gut!
But that's not all.
The key to a strong immune system are the Red Blood Cells.
the red blood cells act as the guards of the immune system
The red blood cells are vital to the immune system.
Everyone talks about the white blood cells.
However, the Red Blood Cells are underestimated in their importance in enhancing natural immunity.
Red blood cells Supply oxygen to all cells of the body including damaged cells, helping in their repair. This job prevents the core cause of sickness: an acidic environment in the body.
Recent research has unveiled a pivotal role of red blood cells as essential immune sensors. These cells bind cell-free DNA, or nucleic acid, circulating in the body during conditions like sepsis and C- ovid.
However, once the red blood cells bind to foreign DNA , they get removed from the blood stream by immune cells called macrophages. This causes a lack of red blood cells, which triggers inflammation and anemia during illness.
Which means, that during or after illness, its vital to replenish and restore the red blood cell count.
The study, led by researchers at the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania, has been published in Science Translational Medicine.
Senior author Nilam Mangalmurti, MD, an assistant professor of Medicine at Penn, commented on the common occurrence of anemia, affecting about a quarter of the world's population. The study sheds light on the development of acute inflammatory anemia in critically ill individuals, such as those with sepsis, trauma, flu, bacterial infections, or parasitic infections.
As we explained above, Red blood cells Supply oxygen to all cells of the body including damaged cells, helping in their repair. This prevents the core cause of sickness: an acidic environment in the body.
By strengthening the red blood cells, in essence you are creating an alkaline oxygenated environment in the body, preventing the body from developing sickness and disease to begin with. But even once a person becomes sick, the focus should be on strengthening the red blood cells.
The Red blood cells act as Immune sentinels, the guards, the lookouts that alert the body to foreign invaders.
These Oxygen-carrying cells capture DNA from pathogens and damaged cells.
That's where our Immune Pro herbal supplement comes in. The Immune Pro was designed to strengthen the red blood cells and to promote healthy blood flow.
Immune Pro not only strengthens the immune system, but it also helps combat anemia, one of the key causes of fatigue.

Building A Strong Immune System
Steps 1-3 will teach you how to build a strong immune system long term to avoid getting sick in the future and to achieve SUPER-IMMUNITY.
Steps 4-6 can be used for short term prevention and for dealing with flu symptoms.
STEP 1 Avoid Toxic Foods
70% percent of the immune system lies in the gut. That means that what we eat determines if we are going to have a strong immune system or not.
Probiotics (good bacteria) n the gut actually train the immune system to identify good and bacteria. If we dont have enough good bacteria due to bad diet, then we are sabotaging our own immunity.
If we're eating sugar, dairy, trans fats, fried foods, meats, fish, and chicken then we're going to get sick, Young people can eat meat and chicken (provided they're grass fed). However as we age our digestive enzymes lower and our ability to digest animals proteins lessens. It takes the body tremendous amounts of enzymes and energy to break down the animal proteins. This energy should be spent on healing and repair, not digesting meat chicken and fish.
so its important to avoid animal proteins in the 40+ category and especially if you're suffering from chronic disease..
Fish should be avoided by everyone at all times due to high levels of heavy metals pesticides, and toxins in our oceans and fish pens. These foods lower our immune strength and promote inflammation in the body.
In fact, most of the cooking oils used in restaurants and processed foods are trans fatty oils. Trans fats clog up the blood and cause low immunity.
Avoid eating out, as most restaurants use bad oils and GMO ingredients.
70% of the Immune System Lies in The GUT !
STEP 2 HEALTHY Plant Based Ancient Grain DIET
Step 2 would be to modify your diet to include plenty of fruits, vegetables (cooked and raw), and healthy ancient grains like Kamut or Einkorn. Avoid processed refined flours and sugars which actually feed bad bacteria. Bacteria feed on sugar, and hundreds of research studies have shown that sugars severely weaken the immune system.
Ancient grains have anti-inflammatory properties.
Kamut is the grain we bake with at Joseph's Organic Bakery. Our kamut sourdough bread really is the cornerstone of a healthy diet. Bread was a staple food for thousands of years for a reason.
