With the current Corona Virus situation happening in the world, it has brought our health, and specifically our immune system sharply into focus. I have always advocated that if we have a properly functioning immune system, then there is absolutely no reason why we should get ill. Our immune system is our best defence against any pathogen, virus or foreign body invader, however sadly most of us do not have optimum functioning immune systems due to toxic load, lack of minerals and vitamins and poor nutrition.
In most places in our world today, we are faced with a situation where our air, land and water is to some, or greater degree, heavily polluted with toxins. The air is filled with chemicals from exhaust, industrial pollutants and now due to geo engineering and chemical trails’. They are even pumping tons of highly toxic metals and oxides into our atmosphere via low orbit rockets in order to block some of the suns rays. When they do this, the chemicals slowly filter down and reach just about every corner of the Earth as the wind carries it along.
Then we have our oceans which are becoming a garbage dump filled with plastic, sewerage and radioactive waste, and our rivers are laden with phosphates and nitrates from chemical fertilisers. On land we have stockpiles of waste from rampant consumerism, war, numerous chemical sprays, GMOS and in New Zealand we have tons of 10-80, a highly toxic poison, being dropped from planes.
This means the food we eat, the water we drink and the air we breath is literally saturating our bodies and creating ‘toxic overload’, thus greatly hampering our immune systems, even without virulent diseases to contend with.
My solution to this situation is to make nutrition and regular detoxification an ongoing part of your daily lifestyle and there are plenty of things we can do to maintain great health and energy levels without necessarily costing a fortune. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, and the best prevention is always naturally based. We come from nature, we are a natural being and therefore, like heals like.
One of the best things we can ever do is get at least 20-40 minutes of sunshine, and even better is to gaze at the setting sun when it is low on the horizon. Never look directly at the sun when it is high in the sky. When you think of the power of photosynthesis, imagine what it could be doing for you! And it also provides the best Vitamin D, absolutely free!
Fresh, wholesome, wholefoods is also a basic must. Plenty of veggies, greens, fruit in season, proper rock salt & seeds. Lessen breads and gluten, make sure you have good fats (coconut oil, butter), eat organic if possible, and make sure you wash your veggies throughly. Drinking plenty of water is so underrated and vital. If you can, drink pure water or get a decent filter.
Deep breathing is also a great way to detox and improve your energy almost instantly. The act of breathing naturally helps energy levels and as a detox, because it compresses the organs, not to mention the toxins in the lungs.
I also think it is important to take some supplements simply because we don’t get enough from our food, or when we are under stress, our body burns through the nutrients it needs much faster. So my suggestion is to at least have plenty of quality Vitamin C, magnesium and a good pro biotic to assist the gut. Much of our overall health depends on the health of our stomach.
To keep our body, mind and immune system healthy we must ensure we are taking plenty of alkaline foods and drinks. Meat and processed food/drinks is highly acidic and this is what causes cellular damage and aging, along with oxidisation damage which destroys the ‘energy voltage’ in our cellular structure. Oxidisation is caused by regular metabolic process, as well as stress, toxin exposure and poor nutrition and even wi-fi, therefore we must take counteracting measures include a daily basis.
Here is my suggestion to stay alkaline and well protected from oxidative damage. Make up a drink as follows based on 2 litres:-
1 3/4 litres of pure water, add 200ml aloe Vera, 50mls of black currant juice (or similar), 6 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar, 1 squeezed lemon, 1/2 teaspoon maple syrup, 1 teaspoon honey, 2 teaspoons of bi-carbonate of soda, 1/4 teaspoon of borax or boron. Mix altogether (it will fizz up) and place in a sealed container in the fridge. Tastes delicious!
This recipe will assist you greatly at any time, regardless of the corona outbreak. It will alkaline, anti-oxidise, detox your liver, lymph nodes and whole system and provide all round health benefits. Drink at least 2/3 cups a day and over time you will feel many benefits. It is also particularly good for such symptoms as chronic fatigue, arthritis and is known to greatly assist cancer, simply because cancer ( and most diseases) need an acidic, highly oxidised system to grow and flourish.
