Keep Your Immune System Strong:
1. Diet (for more detailed diet recommendations ask for our handout on What to Eat
A healthy diet provides nutrients to boost the immune system and reduces toxins that suppress immune function.
AVOID:
    Sugar of all kinds (sugar instantly depresses the immune system),
    Alcohol,
    High fructose corn syrup,
    Processed foods, including fruit juices,
    Food additives,
    Pasteurized dairy and cheese,
    Non organic animal products, farmed fish,
    Fried foods,
    most vegetable oils
EAT:
    Real food
    Organic vegetables and fruits (moderate fruit due it's high sugar content),
    Healthy fats like olive oil, coconut oil, avocado oil and grass fed raw butter,
    Moderate amounts of sprouted grains sprouted nuts, seeds and beans,
    Grass fed and cage free animal products, wild caught fish

2. Lifestyle
A. Sleep: Deep regenerative sleep is necessary for proper cellular repair and detoxification, and essential for strong immune system function (see our handout on Sleep)

B. Exercise: Some sort of exercise, be it walking, yoga, weight training etc. is absolutely necessary if you want to stay healthy.  Exercise promotes mitochondrial health, better sleep, better metabolism, and so much more.

C. Detoxification:  
    1. One of the absolute best ways to detoxify is with a near-infrared sauna.  We carry Sauna Space Saunas with zero VOC (toxins outgassing) and outstanding results.  
    2. Diatomaceous Earth and Activated Charcoal - ask for handout
    3. NDF is possibly the most effective Heavy Metal and all chemical detox
    4. FlorEssence Tea, a gentle detox for the whole body

D. Stress: Exposure to stress depletes the body's energy to fight off microbes, heal and regenerate. Ask us about the best tools to use to reduce stress, such as mediation, flower essences, essential oils, and Pulsed Electro-Magnetic Field Therapy.
