Ps 139:14 – I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.
When this immune system is functioning properly no germ has a chance! The immune system needs only two things:
- Proper fuel
- Removal of toxins
The immune system is controlled mainly by input from cells that line the gut and mucus membranes of the body. The secret is balance. The natural defenses of the body are:
- The moisture layer
- The actual mucus membrane
- The deep immune system
The moisture layer
This is the natural layer of moisture that lies on top of the mucus membranes of the body. It contains antibodies against germs. (IgA made by CD5 + B lymphocytes) The amount and kind of antibodies corresponds strongly to the ± 1kg of good germs you have living in your gut. A course of oral antibiotics will reduce & disturb the natural beneficial bacteria populations. Less good germs (reduction) cause less IgA antibodies that could last quite a while and predisposes you to a next infection. This is why there is a window of opportunity for a second infection.
There are more than 4000 species of good germs that live in harmony in your gut. Oral antibiotics, especially if given at an early age, can disturb the balance and cause immune tolerance to the wrong kinds of germs like yeast. When these yeasts dominate the system they can produce metabolic products (even alcohol) that can disturb the system and cause problems. It is of great importance to keep a thriving population of good germs going. Avoid oral antibiotics as far as possible. Rather use alternatives*. If it is really necessary to use antibiotics, it is always better to have an injection or IV antibiotics. Always give a strong multi strain probiotic with the antibiotic and it would not be a bad idea to always give a course of Nystatin with the antibiotic.
A substance of great value to the moisture layer is apo lactoferrin which is an iron transport protein occurring abundantly in mother’s milk. Lactoferrin binds and transports free iron for the benefit of the body. It also keeps the iron out of the hands of hungry germs that need it to replicate. (Some pathogenic germs in the gut thrives on iron) Lactoferrin is available in supplement form and is very handy to use in any acute or chronic infection that occur on mucus membranes including:
- Otis media
- Colon – diverticulitis
- Some studies show that it may also reduce the risk for colon cancer.
- The actual mucus membrane
The most important nutrient here is natural Vitamin A. We want adequate amounts of pre-formed, free (non esterified) Vitamin A and the best sources are high vitamin butter from cows eating lush green grass and Cod liver oil. These are much more bio available and works at lower doses than synthetic vitamins.
The Deep immune system
These are the actual immune cells that encounter a germ trying to enter your system and we need to keep them alert and active. Refined sugar has a very negative effect on the deep immune system, paralyzing the white blood cells. Vitamin D3 is made out of cholesterol by sunlight and the amount of Vitamin D3 in your system drop in the winter time. Supplementation reduces risk for colds and flu with 80%. With children – we start at 2000 IU per day and with adults 5000 – 7000 IU per day.
Therefore your two preventative Vitamins are Vitamin A & D – not Vitamin C
Dosage and form must be correct otherwise it will not work!
Thus to prevent germs to get a hold of you, you can use the following supplements:
- Safe natural glyconutrient immune booster out of seaweed.
- Marvellous effect on deep immune system
- Dose is one capsule daily
- Cod liver oil / high vitamin butter
- Vit D3
- Probiotic supplement / foods
If one do get ill it is important to start with treatment as soon as possible.
- The best defence is Vitamin C
- Lypo Spheric
- FASM molecule
High doses oxidize germs but needs iron and copper (Fenton reaction), therefore make sure the patient is not deficient in these (Vit C uses catalyse enzyme that is Iron dependant). Vitamin C can kill virtually any germ e.g. Polio, Hepatitis, Shingles – including the neuropathy (6x IV’s).
- Thyme (herb)contains thymol
- -20 x more potent germicide than Lysol
- -Anti viral
- -Thymus vulgarus – grows easily in sunny spot of the garden
- -Make a tea from it
- -May cool a bit and add some juice for little ones
- Doctors best immune defence:
- Contains natural immune boosters plus zinc and copper in the correct ratio
- Works fabulous when combined with the Vit C
- Give two capsules with each dose of Vit C during acute stage
If the child has allergies it can predispose to infection e.g. hay fever leading to sinus infections. Handle allergies with Quercitin (Solgar) 2 caps twice daily and Lypo Spheric Vit C 1 packet once or twice daily. In more severe cases we could add WTS Rosmarinic Acid. Cod liver oil always helps as well.
In conclusion: How do you give capsules for little ones?
- Start early because when they feel sick they don’t want it
- Open capsules and mix with some coconut oil
- Now mix some honey into the mix & refrigerate = “coconut ice”
- Freeze some ripe bananas make into a smooth “ice cream” with Magi – mix
Use your imagination – keep it fun!
