Immune System Health

The Human Body Is Self-Healing and Immune System Health is the most essential aspect of body wellness. We are always seeking balance physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually. If we live within the natural law and take care of our Immune System Health, disease as we know it, cannot exist.

The Immune System is located within the tissues of the colon as thousands of immune system cells, that when functioning properly, dissolves all toxicity that would otherwise invade our system, thereby sustaining balance and freeing us from disease. When the colon becomes congested and the elimination process is stagnant, disease begins, and inflammation and pain set in.

The colon is a muscle and becomes sluggish from overeating, eating the wrong combinations of foods, eating too fast, taking medications, not chewing well enough, and not evacuating fully at least 2 times per day.

Colon Hydrotherapy could be the miracle you are asking for! It has been a miraculous healing for myself and thousands of clients.

Ways To Improve Your Eating Habits

At the Ann Wigmore Living Foods Retreat Center in Puerto Rico in the summer of 1998, I learned the following and recommend you to try this during your next meal to improve digestion, reduce bloating, gas, and other disturbing troublesome reactions.

Sit at the table in a relaxed manner, do not watch any screen, and tune into nourishing yourself for optimal health.

Take a bite of food from whatever utensil you are using and begin chewing slowly. Place your eating utensil on the table and your hands on your lap ... Now chew, chew, chew, swallow, then swallow again, without drinking liquid. Now take your next bites in the same fashion and enjoy your meal.

Do you BURP? If you burp while eating, you are either eating too fast or are FULL! It takes 20 minutes for the brain to register that you are full and need not eat more.

Chew Your Liquids and Liquify Your Solids

The following is an excerpt from my book, Heal from the Inside Out, which provides guidance to those who want to know how to begin cleansing and detoxing and regain their Immune System Health:

The inner life of our body is like that of soil, or terrain. If this soil is built up properly, viruses, bacteria, parasites, or worms will not be able to survive. They are, by natural law, attracted to conditions of decay and degeneration. It is their job to scavenge. Therefore, if we attend to the inner eco-system, build it up with proper nutrients and avoid those substances that encourage the presence of critters, health will build. Just as the farmer builds up his fields of organic soil year after year, yielding bountiful and nourishing crops, we too shall have a bountiful yield of lasting radiant health.

As we change our diet to a vegan organic, raw, living foods diet, two wonderful things happen. The first is, we detoxify. A miraculous cleansing process begins in the cells of our body. They become oxygenated and literally pour stored toxins out through their walls. The second thing that happens is, the walls of the small and large intestines slough off old, encrusted matter that has accumulated. Proper absorption and assimilation of nutrients to the cells increases and vibrant health is restored.

Deepak Chopra, in his book, Perfect Digestion, quotes an ancient Ayurvedic proverb, “Without proper diet, medicine is of no use, and with proper diet, medicine is of no need”. He also says the human body manufactures every pharmaceutical, in the proper amounts and sends them to the targeted organs at precisely the right time. To achieve this state of harmony, all food we put into our body must be of the highest quality and be abundant in living enzymes.

Enzymes are the building blocks of health. “We Are What We Eat!”

Dr. Ann Wigmore, one of the great pioneers in the field of health and nutrition says, “Statistics now begin to reveal that our country has a terrible problem with vitamin and enzyme deficiency. Folks are affected with eye problems, dizziness from fatigue, constipation, allergies, muscle cramps, bone deterioration, and memory loss. Other deficiency syndromes include addictions to drugs and alcohol, heart, liver, kidney, and lung problems. The key is to consuming easy-to-digest nourishment for replacing the deficiencies and strengthening the immune system with enzymes.”

The Entire Dilemma Is Quite Simple

ENZYMES We are all sorely lacking enzymes. The food we have eaten our entire lives has been cooked and devitalized. Contrary to popular belief, food does not give us energy. Food nourishes the physical body but actually robs the essential life energy from the core of our body to help in the process of digestion. When enzyme-rich, predigested foods are introduced, the digestive system gets rebuilt. As this happens, the core or life force energy remains vital, encouraging healing and balance. Any symptomology the body is suffering will respond to enzyme-rich, predigested nourishment. The deficiency that has created these symptoms will turn into sufficiency, and our energy will be expressed in Vibrant Health.

There Are Two Types Of Enzymes

  1. Metabolic Enzymes — We are given a predetermined amount at birth. Enzymes are catalysts for every function in the body including digestion and assimilation. The storehouse of metabolic enzymes is exhausted by a diet of devitalized, non-enzyme-rich foods. The body uses these precious enzymes to digest food rather than for supporting functions in the organs like the liver, spleen, and pancreas. Disease begins as a result.

  2. Food Enzymes — These come packaged by nature in the foods we eat. Natural food enzymes are absolutely necessary to ingest on a per meal basis and are the most significant contribution to our nutritional well-being.

So, eating can be looked upon as science when we understand enzymes. We have all been given this incredible human body and mind to conduct research in.

Become the best researcher you can be, find out what foods really work for you, and live a productive, healthy life that is free of disease and symptomology. May your Creative Power within be carried to deeper and higher levels!

The cleansing and detoxification program in the book, Heal From The Inside Out, supports the healing of the GI tract and restores the health of our Natural Immune System while cleaning it of food particles, mucous, and waste residue. In thousands of documented cases, programs like this have been credited with helping people get well and stay well by correcting the underlying lifestyle habits that caused their diseases.

Food Allergies - What Are They?

Many of us have allergies or reactions to certain foods we consume. The most common are wheat, dairy products, yeast, soy, sugars of all types, coffee, and black and green tea. The reactions to allergens can literally present themselves in many forms, mild to severe; skin eruptions, headache, anxiety, diarrhea, etc.

There are several reasons we have allergies.

  1. Due to the lack of enzymes to break down food in the digestive process.

  2. We do not manufacture the proper enzymes to digest certain foods, like dairy products.

  3. The most troubling is our body's reaction to the products in our foods that the body does not recognize as “FOOD”, such as Genetically Modified Organisms, processed, fried and heated foods, bacteria, viruses, candida, parasites, worms, and cancer organisms.

When we continue consuming foods that produce allergic reactions, our body will go into an Acute Healing Response to try to rid the body of the accumulated Morbid Matter. Sound familiar? It all comes back to the same scenario. When our environment, such as soil, and eco-system, is balanced, then there will be no allergic responses. As our Immune System Health rebuilds, we are more likely to tolerate offending foods or, even better, not even be tempted by them at all.

While cleansing, it is helpful to completely avoid allergens and their effects will gradually subside.

Healing Opportunities and Acute Healing Responses Explained

Natural healing works within the laws of nature. When we change our addictive habits, the body begins to cleanse and detoxify. The body begins eliminating stored toxins through the various organs, including the liver, kidneys, colon, lungs, and skin. If you have symptoms, this is actually a good sign. They are known as “acute healing responses” or “healing opportunities” and are nature’s way of elimination. They will subside as your body rids itself of the stored toxins.

Most people experience one or more of the following symptoms: headaches, muscle aches, weakness, nausea, insomnia, nervousness, vivid dreams, fever, cold and flu symptoms, lightheadedness, bad breath, intestinal discomforts (including constipation and diarrhea), and irritability. You may want to forewarn family and friends! Please keep in mind this is all temporary.

By following the recommendations in this book, the “acute healing responses” will be minimized! The enzymes contained in raw and living foods act as powerful cleansers at the cellular level. When one makes the transition to eating a more raw, living foods diet without doing the appropriate intestinal cleansing beforehand, the picture painted above of “healing opportunities” can be rather unpleasant. For this reason, it is highly recommended you make a slow but steady transition from your present diet to the one outlined in this book. If your cleansing and detoxification are too uncomfortable, eat a baked potato or some cooked grain to slow any symptoms down a bit. Get Colonics and also do Enemas.

In conclusion, I know this is a lot to assimilate. Begin where you feel comfortable, taking little steps and celebrating along the way. Start by eliminating one item from this list: dairy, animal protein, sugar, grains, coffee, alcohol, smoking, and sweet fruits. If you can eliminate one of the items very easily, pick a second one ...
