Silver ShieldUnder the weather? The “bug”? A cold? Whatever you want to call it, we’ve all been there and it’s not pretty. Most of us go about our lives not thinking much about our health until we wake up with a sore throat and the sniffles. We may feel ill for a few days or weeks and then return back to normal. But is there an actual science to the immune system? If so, what things can you be doing to maximize your immune health and prevent an illness from occurring?

 Your immune system is a general name for an extremely complex system. Your immune system is comprised of a multitude of different white blood cells, intestinal flora and lymph nodes.  Each doing different things. At any given moment your body’s immune system will be doing thousands different things. When the body is under abnormal stress, nutrition is lacking or if there is a build up of toxic substances in the body, the body’s defense system will tank and health will be compromised.

 Your body has to detoxify and build nutritionally in order to overcome any illness, whether it be bacterial, fungal or viral. The reason your body gets “sick” and begins having flu symptoms of vomiting, coughing, sneezing, runny or stuffy nose and diahhrea is because the body has initiated a cleansing process.  Your body has become too toxic and a perfect environment for a pathogen or “bug”  to take root has been created. Once the body becomes acidic, available oxygen that is used by the immune system to kill pathogens is greatly reduced. Oxygen is the number one fuel for your body and white blood cells. Staying in this acidic and hypoxic (lacking oxygen) state will lead to severe diseases and death. Your body,  instead of waiting for you to take the initiative  to  detox and eat healthy nutritious  food, initiates a cleansing process on it’s own.

Have you ever done a detoxification program and had headaches, soreness, fatigue, fever, diarrhea, vomiting or any other cleansing reactions? This is because the body is attempting to purify the blood and organs through your eliminative channels  (Kidneys, Liver, Spleen, Skin, Colon).  This is why when a person develops an illness, they develop the same symptoms as detoxification, because the body is detoxifying it’s blood in an attempt to regain balanced Ph (Potential Hydrogen). The body can only ” win the battle” against the invader until the body regains balance of it’s blood Ph through detoxification.

 The answer to preventing a “bug” would be to make sure you are nutritionally sound, relatively clean internally and limit environmental stressors that can trigger a stressed immunity. But what if you already have an illness and are looking to get rid of it? The very first thing the body wants is to have some support while it’s cleansing. Plenty of fresh, raw fruit like watermelon, grapes and other juicy fruits would be ideal. Cruciferous vegetables, like cabbage, garlic, and other green leafy vegetables would also be beneficial. Consuming raw fruits and vegetables (preferably organic) will help to alkalize the system quickly, while simultaneously supporting cleansing due to the high fiber, water and mineral content.

Several supplements you can put in your arsenal, would be Elderberry D3fense (Elderberry Defense), Immune Stimulator and VS-C. These herbal formulas are “synergized” for  maximum effectiveness and work with your body to maximize and fortify your defense system. VS-C has powerful anti-viral properties which make it a formidable foe against unwanted pathogens.

Silver Shield is also another astounding supplement in your arsenal for supreme health. Silver Shield isn’t an herbal blend, but rather very tiny silver particles that are electrically charged, and therefore immensely effective against pathogens including viruses, bacteria, yeast and mold. The electrical charge of silver magnetizes to the solution and therefore is appropriately characterized as a ” heat seeking missile” that is on a search and destroy mission with unwanted invaders.
