Anxious Laugh with Grizzly Bear Encounter – A Simple Way To Boost Our Immune System

It’s Sunday and I am going to be super short and sweet today.  
 
For a somewhat anxious-type laugh today YOU MUST Watch this video! 
 
It is a photographer that is out doing his work, taking photos and shooting video of Grizzly Bears when out of nowhere a GIANT Bear comes right up next to him, looks over the bluff into the river and then takes a seat right next to him……makes the hair on my neck stand up while I simultaneous laugh at the bear’s comfortability of just ‘plopping’ down next to this photographer!

Reduce Sugar Consumption – A Simple Way To Boost Our Immune System

I think any of you that are reading this are extremely aware of the negative impact sugar has on our immune system and ultimately our overall health…..so as an effort to not offend your intelligence I would like to make today somewhat short and sweet with the intent of this being a reminder and giving you some links to visit that may help to reinforce for you how incredibly damaging sugar is.

And even though the vast majority of people (including you) know this, especially here in America, our reality has become that of a culture whose diet consists mostly of sugary and highly processed food like products that are loaded with chemicals.

And these ‘pretend foods’ that are loaded with excess sugar not only make us more susceptible to a compromised immune system and sickness but these sugary foods are also a major cause of the metabolic issues and syndrome’s that are driving chronic disease killers like, heart disease, diabetes, obesity and cancer…

…..and BTW, you really want to avoid high-fructose corn syrup (HFCS), which is made from corn and added to just about all of the previously mentioned sugary and processed food like products you eat and drink.
 
WHY?  Because HFCS is metabolized like alcohol in our body and it’s a major contributor to non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) in both children and adults, along with all the other known disease conditions caused by excess sugar.

Here are some links I suggest you check out to support your desire to kick the sugar habit:

Resveratrol – A Simple Way To Boost Our Immune System

Resveratrol is a highly active, phytonutrient compound found in over 70 species of plants, including common food sources like blueberries, cranberries, cocoa, wine and peanuts that research is beginning to show may help prevent chronic diseases or the progression of chronic disease through multiple immune functions.

It’s a nutrient that possesses polyphenol compounds which are micronutrients from certain plant-based foods that scientists are now demonstrating to have phenomenal anti-aging benefits in addition to numerous immune boosting and therapeutic benefits, including:

  •  Anti-inflammatory

  • Cardiovascular protective

  • Antioxidant

  • Antiaging – promote healthy cellular function

  • Lower blood pressure by increasing Nitric Oxide in blood stream

  • Support healthy cholesterol and triglycerides

  • Improve Insulin Sensitivity in Type 2 Diabetics

  • Anticancer / Chemopreventive Properties – this a very exciting area of research right now for Resveratrol, specifically in Immune response to cancers.

  • Brain Health (Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Vascular Dementia, Stroke)
  • Depression

  • Antifungal

  • Antiviral

  • Antibacterial

  • Boost Natural Killer (NK) Cells in our body

Resveratrol’s actions in our body appear to have broadly similar antioxidant effects to that of other polyphenols such as quercetin and catechins found in green tea however, resveratrol appears to further interact with a large number of receptors, molecules and enzymes in our body as well which may be the major contributions to its beneficial biological effects and health benefits.  

As a matter of fact, in vivo, resveratrol has been shown to promote the activities of sirtuins, proteins in our body that help to regulate cellular health, and some researchers have speculated that this activity might support resveratrol’s help with not only improving cellular function but also its benefit with healthy aging in the body. 

Bioavailability?

Although all of these immune boosting and health benefits of resveratrol are very exciting there is one obstacle that needs to be overcome in order of us to  get all of these great therapeutic benefits: the bioavailability (ability of our body to absorb) of resveratrol.

A number of studies have demonstrated that resveratrol and other polyphenols, like green tea, have very low bioavailability, and this has caused concerns that many of the beneficial effects of resveratrol may not be difficult to achieve if a poor source is used.

As always, I will only recommend the highest quality and most bioavailable supplemental product I can find and in this case, there is no doubt in my mind, if you want the greatest benefits possible from supplemental Resveratrol, then our Premier Resveratrol is the way to go.

The premier resveratrol is a liquid supplement designed to support absorption of the full spectrum of resveratrol’s phytonutrients through fermentation.  With the use of high quality resveratrol that has been micro-cultured with beneficial probiotics, Premier Resveratrol can be naturally absorbed so it immediately provides high quality nutrition…..even for those with poor digestion!

Make it a Healthy Day!!

Colostrum – A Simple Way To Boost Our Immune System

Colostrum is a special immune active fluid produced and secreted by the mammary glands of humans, cows, and other mammals for several days after giving birth.

It’s extremely nutritious and loaded with fats, proteins, carbohydrates, digestive enzymes, immune boosting proteins (lactoferrin, antibodies, growth factors), nucleotides, vitamins and minerals all of which will promote and support the growth and health in infants and newborn animals.

Colostrum is not only an important source of vital nutrients to help promote growth and build the body and immune system in newborns….but it can also be consumed at other points in life as well, most commonly from supplemental intake, to also support our immune system and health as we grow up.

As a matter of fact, the research is showing us that taking bovine colostrum supplements may boost our immune systems, improve our digestive health and fight infections in our body.

Bovine Colostrum, which is similar to human colostrum, and comes specifically from pasture-fed cows is known to contain highly concentrated immune system supportive immunoglobulins that are specific to many human antibodies, such as Immunoglobulin G (IgG).  IgG is the most common type of antibody found in circulation and represents about 75% of the serum antibodies in our body.  

Some additional health benefits for adults using bovine colostrum supplementation are:

  • Anti-cancer
  • Anti-inflammatory
  • Anti-oxidant
  • Help to improve Insulin Resistance
  • Help Leaky Gut
  • Muscle Growth
  • Repair of damaged muscles and ligaments

Of course, not all Colostrum Supplements are the same

Many commercial colostrum products may be rapidly processed using high heat which can damage the immune and health promoting constituents in the colostrum, so you want to make sure the colostrum you use from a supplement comes from a low heat process that will preserve the broad array of protein molecules, including the naturally occurring immunoglobulins (IgG) that will support your immune system. 
  
When colostrum is obtained from a high quality source, it can be an excellent immune support containing dietary supplement that is loaded with naturally occurring amino acids, lactoferrin and immunoglobulins to help boost your immune system! 

Make it a Healthy Day!!

Laughter – A Simple Way To Boost Our Immune System

Laughter is probably the simplest and one of the most important things any of us can do every single day to not only boost our Immune System BUT to improve pretty much every aspect of our life!

Watch Now – Click on the Video Image below to
view. 

After watching the video and experiencing the joy and laughter I know you will experience just like I do when I watch this then read below the image about all the wonderful things that will begin to happen in terms of Boosting Your Immune System from viewing this video. Enjoy!!

 

Below from Laughter Online University (Click Here to view full article)

Watching a one-hour comedy video for example has been found to produce:
 

  • Increased number and activation of T cells;

  • Increased number of Helper T cells

  • Increased ratio of Helper/Suppressor T cells

  • Increased number and activity of Natural Killer (NK) cells;

  • Increased levels of Gamma Interferon;

  • Increased number of B cells.

Here are some quotes from famous doctors:
 

  • “The simple truth is that happy people generally don’t get sick.” – Bernie Siegel, M.D. (an internationally recognized expert in the field of cancer treatment and complementary holistic medicine)

  • “The best clinicians understand that there is an intrinsic physiological intervention brought about by positive emotions such as mirthful laughter, optimism and hope.” – Lee Berk, DrPH, Assoc Res Pro Loma Linda School of Medicine

  • “For the most part, when you go and get medical treatment, a clinician is not necessarily going to tell you to take two aspirins and watch Laurel and Hardy, but the reality is that’s where we are and it’s more real than ever. There’s a real science to this. And it’s as real as taking a drug.” – Lee Berk, DrPH, Assoc Res Pro Loma Linda School of Medicine

  • “Daily opportunities for laughter are important for patients with diabetes” – Keiko Hayashi, RN, PhD

  • “Believe it or not, having a really hearty chuckle can help too. This is because laughing gets the diaphragm moving and this plays a vital part in moving blood around the body.” – Dr. Andrea Nelson, University of Leeds School of Healthcare

Below taken from Laughter Is The Best Medicine article – to read full article click here

“It’s true: laughter is strong medicine. It draws people together in ways that trigger healthy physical and emotional changes in the body. Laughter strengthens your immune system, boosts mood, diminishes pain, and protects you from the damaging effects of stress. Nothing works faster or more dependably to bring your mind and body back into balance than a good laugh. Humor lightens your burdens, inspires hope, connects you to others, and keeps you grounded, focused, and alert. It also helps you release anger and forgive sooner.

As children, we used to laugh hundreds of times a day, but as adults, life tends to be more serious and laughter more infrequent. But by seeking out more opportunities for humor and laughter, you can improve your emotional health, strengthen your relationships, find greater happiness—and even add years to your life.”
 

  • Boosts immunity

  • Lowers stress hormones

  • Decreases pain

  • Relaxes your muscles

  • Prevents heart disease

The point of today’s post being, in this day and age of constantly being inundated with negative media stories, negative co-workers, negative work environments, negative family members, a negative spouse, etc…it has become more and more challenging for all of us to protect our mental and emotional wellbeing.  And when we are constantly feeling these negative emotions that are triggered by these negative energies then we are depressing our immune system and ultimately setting ourselves up for increased risk of sickness and disease!

So the solution as I see it is to be proactive about protecting what you allow into your mental space, start a meditation practice, consume positive content to start and end your day (book, article, video, etc.) and make it a habit to laugh every single day!!!!  In other words, make your ‘Mental Health Workouts’ just as important, if not more important as your ‘Physical Health Workouts’! 

Make it a Healthy Day!!

Sincerely,
Dr. Cadwell

Aloe Vera – A Simple Way To Boost Our Immune System

To start today, I am hopeful that you all are finding the immune boosting suggestions I have shared over the last couple weeks to be informative and or helpful.  As I write today’s post I have suddenly realized that I am now in my 18th year of clinical practice…crazy how time flies!! And when you’ve done something and lived it for as long as I have you tend to forget that information you may think is common knowledge or that everyone else already knows isn’t necessarily the case….and that is a mistake I have made that I will not make any longer.

For those of you interested, I am committed to doing and being the best I can at educating and informing you…in other words, EMPOWERING YOU!  The last couple of weeks are just the start!  I hope that’s ok with you…. So Onward!

Aloe Vera for Overall Health and Immune Boosting!

As we age our immune system, which is so vitally important to protecting our body, will begin to weaken (known as Immunosenescence). If our Immune System weakens then its ability to defend us will also weaken, allowing unwanted microbes, viruses, cancer cells, etc. to potentially grow and flourish.  As a result, our body can become more prone to various illnesses and diseases as we age making it even more important to employ not only immune boosting strategies but to also utilize the incredible age management (anti-aging) tools available to us (another topic for future discussion).

Aloe Vera is loaded with micronutrients, amino acids, enzymes, and polysaccharides, in fact, it is believed that Aloe Vera contains more than 75 nutrients making it a plant rich in health promoting and immune boosting nutrients!

One specific nutrient of aloe vera is Acemannan, a polysaccharide from the Aloe Vera plant that has been extensively researched and is considered to be one of the most biologically active and beneficial components in Aloe Vera.  It’s composed of the monosaccharides, mannose, glucose and galactose counted among the eight important essential monosaccharides critical to our overall health.

In terms of its immune system benefits, Acemannan’s biological activities are shown to directly support cell-to-cell communication of the immune system to promote healthy immune responses during times of stress. This communication allows for the interaction with remote cells that cause them to migrate to a damaged site or initiate a secondary biological response in the body.

The biological effects of acemannan include the beneficial stimulation and/or production of:
 

  • IL-1a (interleukin 1 alpha)
  • TNF-a (Tumor Necrosis Factor apha)  
  • IL-6 (Interluekin-6)  
  • Nitric Oxide
  • Prostaglandin E2 by production by macrophages(white blood cels)

In addition, along with acemannan and the plethora of nutrients in Aloe Vera that provide us phenomenal immune boosting benefits, here is some additional health and wellness support you’ll receive from high quality Aloe Vera:
 

  • Anti-inflammatory
  • Antiviral
  • Digestive Support
  • Healing Ulcers
  • Antibiotic
  • Constipation
  • Antimicrobial
  • Antiseptic
  • Antibacterial
  • Detoxification
  • Anti-fungal

Obviously, a well-supported immune system will help keep various illnesses and disease conditions at bay, so in addition to the immune boosting strategies discussed in previous posts it’s obvious that Aloe Vera is powerful immune booster loaded with nutrients that will help our body’s daily fight to be and stay well.

Please Note:  Not all Aloe Vera products are created equally. Many do not contain the beneficial ingredients we’ve discussed today. I strongly recommend our Aloe Pro Juice or Aloe Mannan if you are looking for a high quality Aloe Vera
product.

Make it a Healthy Day!!

Dr. Cadwell

Molecular Hydrogen – A Simple Way To Boost Our Immune System

Many of you may already be using this as I have been strongly advocating for all of our clients to start taking Molecular Hydrogen as a part of their lifetime health and wellness routine. 

Why?

There are over 1200 peer reviewed studies on the many health and immune boosting benefits of Molecular Hydrogen, many of which are on multiple disease conditions! (Click for Molecular Hydrogen Studies).

So for today, because there is soooooo much I could say about Molecular Hydrogen I will instead try to make it short and sweet with a simple explanation of Molecular Hydrogen and some benefits (click here to see some disease conditions MH has been shown to help).

What is Molecular Hydrogen?

Molecular Hydrogen (H2) is a gas and the smallest molecule in our universe, which is why its bioavailability (absorption into our body) is so great.  In addition, because hydrogen has a neutral charge it can easily penetrate any membrane space in your body, including the blood brain barrier, mitochondria in our cells and the nucleus of our cells to protect our DNA!!

In fact, Molecular Hydrogen has been shown to effectively benefit essentially every organ in our body by powerfully mitigating oxidative stress (free radical damage) and inflammation in our bodies both of which are at the root of many diseases that destroy our health.

A Powerful Antioxidant!

Molecular Hydrogen appears to have very unique and selective antioxidant effects that may improve the redox status (exchange of electrons between a donor and a receiver) in our body’s cells when necessary. In addition, these powerful antioxidant effects of Molecular Hydrogen are specifically targeting only the most damaging and harmful free radicals!!

How to get Molecular Hydrogen into your body?
 

  • hydrogen gas inhalation

  • bathing in hydrogen-rich water

  • intravenous hydrogen-rich saline injection

  • hyperbaric hydrogen therapy

  • drinking hydrogen-rich water

The last of these methods is how I use Molecular Hydrogen daily.  As a matter of fact, it is the first thing I do when I wake up every morning.  I put about 4 to 5 ozs of room temperature water from our in home RO and ultra-purity water filtration system in a glass (don’t drink tap water! – another conversation for another day), I then drop one of the Molecular Hydrogen Tablets into the water.  The table will begin to immediately effervesce, creating a super-saturated hydrogen water cloud.  As soon as the tablet is completely dissolved, I gently stir and then drink down….that’s it!  Simple!

And as a beautiful add-on, our Molecular Hydrogen tab is composed of a high grade elemental magnesium that when it dissolves in the water produces not only the concentrated hydrogen cloud you consume BUT you also get the added benefit of the Magnesium, which is a vitally important mineral for our body and also has a very important role in boosting our immune system as well….so you get to kill 2 birds at once! 

Make it a Healthy Day!!

Sincerely,
Dr. Cadwell

Great Ways To Boost Your Immune System Naturally – Part 14

Coconut Oil – A Simple Way To Boost Our Immune System

I have long recommended coconut oil to our practice members, especially those participating in our Body N Balance Program, for years due to all of its wellness and health benefits, which I highlight below, but for now, I want to give you a very brief version of why Coconut Oil is so great for immune boosting.

Specifically in this time of viral fighting, Coconut oil will boost a weakened immune system by increasing the white blood cell counts in our body and help our body to directly fight viruses. This will happen based on Coconut oil containing two powerful ingredients that are phenomenal immune system boosters!

These are lauric acid and caprylic acid, both of which have anti-viral properties.

Both lauric acid and caprylic acid have also been shown to fight off bacterial infections and yeast infections as well (Please Note: avoid refined coconut oils, and go with Non-GMO, extra-virgin, organic coconut oil to get the best quality).

To get these immune boosting benefits coconut oil, which is comprised of 50%  lauric acid, our body will innately convert the laric acid in coconut oil to monolaurin, a powerful agent that acts as a antiviral agent that will then create a hostile environment to  help our body fight off numerous viruses and pathogens, such as:

 

  • Staphylococcus aureus

  • Herpes

  • Influenza

  • Cytomegalovirus

  • HIV

  • Listeria Monocytogenes

  • Candida albicans

  • Helicobacter Pylori (H-Pylori)

  • Giardia Lamblia

  • Fungal Infections like Athlete’s Foot and Ringworm applied topically

  • Coconut Oil combined with Anise Essential Oil and applied to the scalp has been shown to kill head lice

And even though coconut oil is certainly not a panacea or cure for any specific disease condition, coconut oil has been shown in the literature to carry tremendous immune boosting benefits as well as health and wellness promoting qualities. 

And so, combined with a naturally healthy lifestyle and high quality diet, like we teach on our Body N Balance Program, you can no doubt benefit on your journey to optimal health and well-being from coconut oil…..and if you don’t believe me, here are additional health challenges and health benefits that coconut oil has been shown to assist with:

  • Weight loss

  • Digestive Support

  • Dental Health (Oil Pulling – Gargle)

  • Skin care

  • Hair care

  • Heart disease

  • Diabetes

  • Bone Health

  • Dementia and Alzheimer’s

  • Energy Production for the body

  • Support Healthy Cholesterol Levels

I hope you now realize coconut oil is truly a wonderful and natural way to boost your immune system but also as a wellness tool to incorporate into in your daily routine.  

And in terms of daily dosage, I suggest 1 teaspoon to 1 Tablespoon per day added to your morning coffee or tea or to cook with.  Additionally, you can also apply coconut oil to your skin and mix in various essential oils for added benefit if you want…..as the skin is our body’s largest organ and whatever goes on the skin goes in!

Oil of Oregano – A Simple Way To Boost Our Immune System

Oregano oil is made from the oregano plant, known as Origanum vulgare, and is a flowering plant from the same botanical family as mint. Most people think of oregano as an herb to flavor food however; Oregano has been used since ancient times dating back to the Greeks and Romans due to its many immune boosting and healing properties.

In fact, research has shown that oregano oil not only has numerous immune boosting effects but it also contains tremendous health and healing properties as well, including:

  • Antioxidant

  • Anti-Bacterial (research has shown oregano oil being effective against gram-negative and gram-positive bacteria)

  • Anti-Viral

  • Anti-Inflammatory

  • Anti-Fungal

  • Anti-Diabetic

  • Anti-Cancer

  • Help support healthy cholesterol levels

  • Treat yeast Infections

  • Treat Digestive issues like leaky gut and parasites – I put oregano oil in my dog’s food periodically if we notice diarrhea or digestive issues and clears it right up!! Works for us humans too!

  • Help with weight loss and/or weigh management

  • Pain Relief

What gives Oregano Oil get its Immune Boosting and Healing Benefits?

Oregano oil contains numerous phytochemicals (phenols, terpines and terpinoids) that appear to be responsible for oregano’s high powered immune boosting and healing qualities. In fact, biological studies have shown that twelve distinct phytochemicals from oregano exhibit immune boosting and support activity, of which Carvacrol is the most active, naturally occurring phytocompound in oregano and a potent agent that has a remarkable effect on boosting our immune system and promoting our overall health and wellness.

Make it a Healthy Day!!

Proteolytic Enzymes – A Simple Way To Boost Our Immune System

Proteolytic enzymes, also known as proteases, include bromelain (pineapple enzyme), papain (papaya enzyme), serrapeptase (silk worm enzyme), pancreatin, trypsin and chymotrypsin (pancreatic enzymes) are essential regulators and modulators of our body’s immune system and it’s inflammatory response.

As a matter of fact, scientific research has shown us that the power of proteolytic enzymes to reduce inflammation is not only equal to but even more powerful than traditional NSAID’s and steroidal drugs, specifically Phenylbutazone (NSAID), Hydrocortisone (Steroid), Indomethacin (NSAID) and Acetylsalicylic Acid (Aspirin), meaning, these proteolytic enzymes appear to play an important role in our body’s immune system and its ability to modulate and support a healthy inflammatory response during times of stress.

In addition, and of particular interest regarding immune support, these Proteolytic enzymes are associated with important immune actions that create as much as a 7x to 10x increase in the appetite of our macrophages as well as the strength of our natural killer (NK) cells, both of which are lymphocytes (white blood cell) that participate in the actions of our immune system and play a vital  role in our bodies ability to destroy and/or digest foreign substances, microbes, tumors and virally infected cells.

Although individual proteolytic enzymes can be useful, for more severe immune and/or inflammatory conditions the literature has shown us that a combination of these enzymes, with a systemic approach, produces more potent results, specifically in cases of arthritis and other related diseases, providing anti-inflammatory, vasculoprotective and immune support benefits.

For example, combination proteolytic enzyme therapies have also been shown to help with:

·       Various Cancers

·       COPD

·       Digestive and Pancreatic Insufficiency/Poor Digestion

·       Atherosclerosis (hardening of arteries)

·       Fibrocystic Breasts

·       Dietary allergies

·       Sinusitis, asthma, bronchitis

·       Hepatitis C

·       Herpes zoster (shingles)

·       Chronic and Acute Inflammation, sports injuries and trauma

·       Rheumatoid arthritis, Multiple Sclerosis and other autoimmune disorders
