Immune System Support

A strong immune system keeps us healthy, warding off both common and more serious illnesses. Providing immune system support keeps you healthy.

Mainstream medicine focuses on killing the bugs, and while this is good in the short term, it doesn’t prevent you from getting sick in the first place.

How many times do you get sick each year? If it’s more than twice, your immune system isn’t working the way it’s supposed to. Repeated doses of antibiotics aren’t necessarily the answer. As we are fond of saying, frequent colds aren’t due to an antibiotic deficiency!

Did you know that viruses cause 90% of winter illnesses? And did you know that antibiotics do nothing to shorten those illnesses?

Have you ever wondered why, when you do get sick, it often takes more than one round of antibiotics to get you better? That’s because more than likely you had a viral (rather than bacterial illness – which antibiotics should take care of) illness and your body probably took care of it by itself.

Why not focus on keeping your immune system up, thereby preventing illness in the first place? Several things keep our immune system from working to its full potential:

  • Poor diet (lacking in fresh wholesome foods)
  • Excessive sugar
  • Stress
  • Lack of sleep
  • Too much alcohol, tobacco
  • Lack of exercise
  • Given these factors, it’s not hard to see why some people catch every bug that comes around.

    We can work with you to find an appropriate plan to keep you and your immune system strong – year in and year out. This entails changing some of the foods you eat, adding certain nutrients that are proven to boost immune function, and utilizing botanical and nutraceuticals to sharpen the immune response.
