Today we talk about organic herbs that will give your immune system a boost:

Your Immune System: a few herbs that will provide organic positives

Under normal circumstances, your immune system responds to foreign organisms by producing antibodies and stimulating specialized cells, which destroy the organisms or neutralize their toxic products. A second major function of your immune system is to watch over all of the cells of your body to ensure that they are not abnormal.

Scientists have known for years that it is possible to improve the functioning of the immune system. A good immune tonic combines the most powerful herbal immune enhancers the world has to offer and concentrates them to a degree never before seen on the planet. Such enhancers include herbs such as:

Echinacea

A key ingredient in the tonic is Echinacea, which is truly a miracle herb. For one thing, it contains echinacoside (a natural antibiotic, comparable to penicillin in effect) that can kill a broad range of viruses, bacteria, fungi, and protozoa, which makes it invaluable in wound healing and the treatment of infectious diseases. Research has also reported echinacea’s efficacy in treating colds, flu, bronchitis, tuberculosis, infections, etc.

Echinacea also contains echinacein, a biochemical that protects against germ attack by neutralizing the tissue dissolving enzyme, hyaluronidase, produced by many germs. Also, studies, such as the one published in Infection and Immunology, show that echinacea contains substances that boost the ability of your body’s macrophages to destroy germs. And other studies from the University of Munich have shown that echinacea extracts boost T-cell production by as much as 30% more than other immune boosting drugs.

Pau d’arco

Pau d’arco (Tabebuia heptophylla) comes from the rain forests of Brazil and other areas of South America. This amazing herb nourishes the body’s defense system and helps protect against pathogenic organisms. It has been used for centuries to improve immune function, detoxify, and reduce pain throughout the body — especially in the joints.

Research has shown that it contains a natural antibacterial agent, has a healing effect on the entire body, cleanses the blood, and kills viruses.

It has been used as a treatment for AIDS, allergies, infections and inflammations, anemia, asthma, arthritis, arteriosclerosis, as a blood builder, bronchitis, all types of cancer, candidiasis, colitis, cystitis, smoker’s cough, diabetes, eczema, paralysis of the eyelids, fistulas, gastritis, gonorrhea, hemorrhages, hernias, Hodgkin’s disease, liver disease, leukemia, lupus, malaria, multiple sclerosis, nephritis, osteomyelitis, pain, Parkinson’s disease, polyps, prostatitis, psoriasis, pyorrhea, rheumatism, ringworm, skin cancer, skin sores, spleen infections, snake bites, ulcers including varicose ulcers, varicose veins, warts, and wounds.

Suma

Natives of the Amazon jungle have used Suma for at least the last 300 years. It wasn’t until 1975, however, that Suma was introduced to the 20th century and tested at the University of São Paulo, Brazil.

The studies, conducted by Dr. Milton Brazzach, concluded that although it was not a cure, it nevertheless brought significant relief for cancer, diabetes, and gout sufferers — with no undesirable side effects.

Since then, studies at the American College of the Healing Arts by Dr. Michael Tierra, author of The Way of Herbs, indicated that consistent use of Suma may help combat fatigue (including treatment of chronic fatigue and low energy conditions), prevent colds and flus, speed healing, regulate blood sugar, and stimulate the sex drive.

The key working ingredients in Suma are

  • Pfaffic acid, which prevents the spread of various cells disorders.
  • Pfaffocides and other saponins, which help stop diseases already in progress.
  • The plant hormones sitosterol and stigmasterol, which prevent cholesterol absorption and improve blood circulation.
  • Alantoin, which helps accelerate healing
  • And most important of all: Germanium. Suma has one of the highest concentrations of Ge-132 of any plant in existence.

What’s the big deal with Ge-132? It was actually discovered about 20 years ago by a Japanese research chemist named Kazuhiko Asai. It’s full name is bis-Carboxyethylgermanium Ses- quioxide (or Germanium Sesquioxide, for short).

According to studies by Dr. Parris M. Kidd, “This substance, while free of major side effects, can apparently invigorate, rejuvenate, restore sexual function, protect against miscarriages during pregnancy, heal burns without scarring, cure radiation sickness, restore eyesight and hearing, kill the pain of advanced cancer, and shrink cancers within weeks. Circulatory disorders, including heart attacks, angina pectoris, stroke, and peripheral impairments response well to Ge-132, as do hepatitis and cirrhosis and several behavior disorders.”

Cordyceps

Many of the compounds found in the medicinal mushrooms such as Reishi, Maitake, and Cordyceps are classified as Host Defense Potentiators (HDP). These compounds include: active hemicellulose (AHCC), polysaccharides, polysaccharide-peptides, nucleosides, triterpeniods, complex starches, and other metabolites. It is believed that combinations of these products target and strengthen the human immune system as well as aid in neuron transmission, metabolism, hormonal balance and the transport of nutrients and oxygen. Through a host-mediated (T cell) immune mechanism, they help the body regulate the development of lymphoid stem cells and other important defense responses.

Cordyceps, the final ingredient in the tonic, has properties similar to those of ginseng and has been used to strengthen and rebuild the body after exhaustion or long-term illness. It has also been used traditionally for impotence, neurasthenia, and backache.

Recent research with extracts of Cordyceps has yielded a protein-bound polysaccharide with high oral activity against tumors, as well as immunological enhancement. Cordyceps is one of the most valued medicinal fungi in all Chinese medicine, among the most potent, and also one of the most expensive (costing as much as $249 per kilogram). Cordyceps is widely employed to treat upper respiratory problems, impotence, weakened immune systems, and by athletes to increase endurance.

Astragalus

Astragalus root is an immunostimulant used in the treatment of chronic viral infections, hepatitis, edema, common cold, and flu. In vitro, Astragalus increases the interferon response to viral infection and works synergistically with administered interferon. It increases phagocytic activity and antibody levels and improves the functioning of natural killer cells.

Perrila Frutescens

Perilla extract can help restore the healthy Th1/Th2 balance thereby enhancing your body’s immune system and minimizing the possibility of autoimmune disorders.

  3. I believe avoiding refined foods would be the first step for you to lose weight. They can taste great, but refined foods have got very little nutritional value, making you take more to have enough strength to get through the day. Should you be constantly ingesting these foods, transferring to grain and other complex carbohydrates will make you to have more strength while ingesting less. Interesting blog post.
