Favorite Immunity Boosters

I thought I’d reblog this 2009 post listing my favorite immunity boosters. I think I’ve had only two colds or flu’s in the past fourteen years, and one of those was when I forgot to use oil of oregano after spending an unplanned 40 minutes waiting in sub zero temps inhaling car fumes and chemtrails. Under normal circumstances, I don’t get sick.

Since 2009, I’ve also become a fan of Four Sigmatic’s Chaga-Cordyceps and Chaga-Lion’s mane mushroom coffees, as well as Organo Gold Reishi coffee. Those are the only mushroom (or other) coffees I drink, but I love them. I also take some extra vitamin C if I encounter anyone sick.

As usual, this is not medical advice. I’m just sharing my own experiences, because people have been asking how to support their own immune system.

Many blessings and good health to you and yours!

With all the concern over the Flu, I thought Iโ€™d post some of my favorite tips for staying well. You donโ€™t need to buy into the American pharmaceutical industry in order to benefit from some extra health precautions. I havenโ€™t gotten a cold or flu since 2004, despite working in close proximity with many people whoโ€™ve been very ill and coughed or sneezed all over me. ๐Ÿ™‚ Here are my top-twelve quick fixes whenever I feel a bit under the weather. As usual, Iโ€™m just sharing my own experiences and observations; nothing here constitutes medical advice:

1 )ย  Oil of Oregano. This stuff rocks! I bring some with me every time I travel by plane, because itโ€™s anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-viral and anti-parasitic. A few drops in water (putting it on the tongue as instructed burns like crazy) helps me feel immune to any sneezing or coughing going straight intoโ€ฆ

    Thank you, Laura! I love oregano oil too and interestingly I just read about these coffees you mentioned…how synchronistic…haven’t tried them yet tho. Another remedy that works great is Yin Chiao…by Dr. Shen…Chinese herbal formula that works well when taken at early onset of colds and flu or preventively, (new word : ) ) like if you have to go on an airplane. Ugh! Fun to see you frolicking in the snow and loving life in Kalamazoo…glad you and David are doing well. Much love!

    Laura, it would be great as well to bring awareness to the benefits of distilled waters and it’s capacity for cleansing the inside of the body. The following video is very informative in this regard — do listen, do share — this gentleman really knows what he’s talking about. I tuned into him about three years ago (at the same time as I learned about the benefits of urine therapy) and soon thereafter, I invested in a water distiller for my home. I have to say, along with other good habits we’ve picked up along the way, drinking only distilled water has made a huge difference in our health and youthful levels.

  4. Hi Demitra, thanks for your comment. I will leave people the option of clicking through your link here. For me, personally, distilled water was not a good answer. I have done so much better with both Berkey water, fresh spring water, and with alkalinized water. We used to have a distiller, and I got to the point where it just tasted dead to me. I couldn’t even force myself to drink it, but the other types of water left me energized, alive and much, much better mineralized.

    I know people who really do swear by distilled water, but for me, it contributed to major tooth demineralization (along with a host of other things, but the distilled was a factor). I know others for whom that was the case, too, so it’s not something I would personally endorse on my blog. For certain, though, there are some people who find it very beneficial! My plants like it every second or third watering to prevent any kind of salt burn due to our tap water or water softener. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks for sharing the link and your own experience.

    Laura, I hope you take the time to listen to this video just the same. I’m not saying that you have not experienced the things you recount but, for example, de-mineralization of teeth is simply not the fault of distilled water, it just isn’t. Again, it’s worth listening to this video if only to hear him explain why it cannot be. Anyway.. up to you. ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. You’re welcome, Sue. The Oil of Oregano has been such a game changer for so many people I know, especially older people in more frequent danger of pneumonia. I had one 80+ year old friend in Goshen who used to get pneumonia every single year, and since I turned her onto the O of O, she has not gotten anywhere near that in over four years.

    Ditto David’s mom: although she sometimes will get a little cough, when the rest of her nursing care wing is quarantined due to stomach or respiratory flu, she’s always fine. She never even takes the O of O internally. She just sniffs the bottle I gave her years ago. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Anyway, it’s good stuff! Wishing you and yours a wonderful and healthy 2018! xxx โค

  9. Thanks for the resource, Demitra! I’ve watched several videos about distilled water, as David was a huge fan when we met, but this one sounds exceptionally good. If/when I get the urge to take a break from sessions, writing research and the writing itself, I’ll watch it … . Meanwhile, it’s here on the blog, and I can route anyone with water questions to this as a resource. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’m grateful to report that my teeth completely remineralized, and there were many factors to that. Nonetheless, whenever I taste Berkey water, alkalized water or truly fresh spring water, it’s like a whole other realm of hydration, so for now, I will personally stick with what works for me/us. Thank you, though … I’m just very focused on my writing these days. ๐Ÿ™‚


  10. ๐Ÿ™‚ Thank you, Sue! xx
