Poor Immunity to Colds and 'Fluposted on 22 November 2007 | posted in Health Tips
Frequent colds and flu are a sign of a low immune system that can be caused by poor eating habits, particularly high levels of sugar and/or cow's milk, insufficient sleep and rest, 'burning the candle at both ends', periods of stress and trauma, too much exercise or even not enough exercise.
Working in a poor environment where the ambient air is stale or recycled might also be a contributing factor. However if the immune system is strong, this would not be a causative effect on its own.
The suggested solutions, taken over a period of a few months, can be very helpful. With our patients in clinic, we will addresss key underlying health problems and then suggest a small regime to help to keep the immune system strong. Taking one or more of the suggested solutions can be very successful if taken over the winter period, or whenever patients are exposed to colds and flu as a preventative.
Other measures that should be taken are to:
Eliminate sugar, sucrose, dextrose from the diet and substitute with items sweetened with apple juice, grape juice, agave, fruit sugar (Fruisiana).
Avoid other refined carbohydrates such as white flour products and instead, use wholemeal products.
Reduce cow's dairy products to a minimum
Ensure that at least 5 portions of fruit and vegetables are eaten daily
Herbs that are known to help support the immune system are included in these two formulas Astragalus & Ganoderma combination or Immune Formula
Defence Maintenance is also a good all round remedy for immune support
Zambroza is a great all round tonic and Chinese Mineral Chi Tonic is a Chinese herbal combination that supports the acupuncture meridian system and thus promote vitality.
