Supplements are part and parcel of keeping your immune system healthy. Here are just a few very important supplements to help sustain your immune system:
• CLA (conjugated linoleic acid)
• omega-3 fish oil
• coenzyme Q10
• vitamin C (2-5 gm/day)
Balanced hormones improve your immune system function. Bioidentical/ human identical hormones are the only ones to use: estradiol, progesterone, and testosterone for women, and testosterone for men.
Also, low thyroid is being underdiagnosed and incorrectly treated by the conventional medical system in epidemic proportions.
Low thyroid leads to immune deficiency and increases the likelihood of getting the flu and other communicable diseases, so have your thyroid tested and treated.
Another hormone that directly affects immune function is the stress hormone, cortisol. The more cortisol we produce over long periods of time, the more likely we deplete our adrenals, leading to adrenal fatigue, and, as a consequence, get sick all the time.
Susceptibility to the flu disappears when our adrenals are strong and healthy. Adrenal fatigue is treated with rest, sleep, eating the clean diet I described, taking supplements that boost adrenal function, like adrenal cortex, magnesium, and zinc, and balancing all hormones.
