Keeping Your Immune System Strong and The Coronavirus

    With all of the media attention on the latest virus outbreak that causes severe respiratory illness it is no wonder Canadians are searching for ways to keep their immune system boosted. First of all don't panic. Socially isolate, wash your hands and stay grounded. A lot of schools are offering free online learning, we can make crafts or read books. Call someone you have been meaning to! This too shall pass.

     Many people are already suffering with typical winter infections such as colds, sinus infections and coughs. Here are five simple tips to keep your immunity humming and respiratory illnesses at bay. 

     1. Avoid sugar and sweets. Sugar (cane, beet, succanat, turbinado, honey, agave, maple syrup) and refined carbohydrates (such as white flour, white rice) help viruses to take off in the body because microbes grow when they are fed simple sugars. This creates a toll on the immune system. If one eats too many sweets it also causes an imbalance in our natural flora found in our sinuses, lungs, gastrointestinal (GI) and urogental tracts. When our flora is imbalanced, it impedes our immune system because our GI tract holds three quarters of our lymphatic system, which is our main immune defence. You may notice that children that go to birthday parties or sleepovers and eat a lot of candy come home sick from eating sweets to their heart's content and lack of sleep.

     2. Consider using these particular probiotic strains, which target  respiratory viruses, called lactobacillus paracasei 8700 2 and lactobacillus planatarium HEAL 9, found in Ultra Flora Cold Control. Consumption of these probiotics decrease one's susceptibility to cold by 67% and reduced illness time by almost 25%

     3. Be sure to correct any nutritional deficiencies in zinc, vitamin D3 and vitamin C. These vitamins are excellent immune boosters. A typical dose of zinc is 15 mgs once or twice daily with meals. For vitamin D3, take 1000 up to 5000IU per day with a meal that contains fat to aid in absorption. Vitamin C dosage runs from 1000mgs to 5000mgs per day in divided doses. If you get loose stools cut the dose back as needed. 

     4. Get proper sleep. When people are run down physically and emotionally due to stress and/or a lack of sleep, they are more susceptible to respiratory viruses. Some believe there are emotional triggers to health concerns and having cough or laryngitis is linked to stress where someone is unable to speak their truth. Be sure you make changes to your lifestyle that help you to minimize stress.

     If that doesn't help your sleep, try some natural sleeping aids. Some herbs such as oatstraw, passionflower, valerian, chamomile or hops can be quite helpful. They are often found in over the counter sleepy time teas and don't have the list of dangerous side effects that prescription sedatives do. Calcium and magnesium are also beneficial for a relaxing sleep. Take these products an hour before going to bed. 

     5. Herbs such as astragalus, cat's claw, black cumin sap, echinacea and mushrooms such as chaga, cordeceps, reishi and shitake all boost immunity.Try making a hot wild mushroom soup!

     6. In office we use homeopathic blends such as:

  • For immune boosting Caruso Lymph and Immune Lymph daily and thymuline once per week.
  • For flu symptoms, InfluMed.
  • For coughs and lung support, Caruso Pulmo
  • For sinus congestion, Caruso Sinus

     Homeopaths have been discussing the COVID-19 and what remedies best address the symptoms of it. These have been the top ones discussed arsenicum album, justicia and gelsemium. Remedies are best matched to ones symptoms.Everyone is different and not one size fits all.

For all other issues, I recommend a tune up. If you would like more information on how we can help you, please contact us. We are doing telephone or skype chats for people at this time.

Ringworm is caused by a contagious fungal infection. It is characterized by round spots on the skin that may be red and raised slightly. It can happen anywhere on the body but may be in areas that are covered like hair, armpits, groin or under the breasts.

Anti fungal creams such as nizorole, fuconosole and even ones like tea tree oil are in this category. Homeopathic remedies are quite helpful for its cares. Remedies to consider may be ones such as thuja, bacillinum or silicea. The remedies are suited to someone's unique symptom picture.

Canker sores can appear on the tongue, gums or mouth area. They can be quite painful. The causes vary. Some old books, such as the Cottage Physician from 1892, states that chronic canker sores may be related to mercury toxicity. They recommend a decoction of gentian. In our modern clinic, we attribute the cause to eating too many acid foods like citrus, tomato, pineapples, vinegar, alcohol or food allergies. Candida can also trigger mouth ulcers and canker sores

Treatments include:

  • opening and probiotic capsule and putting the powder directly onto the canker sores
  • taking a zinc supplement
  • using homeopathic remedies such as borax, mercurius or arnica

I get asked about fish oil omega 3 supplements a lot in the office. I personally think the supplements is a great daily adjunct to a healthy diet.

Omega-3 fatty acids have many benefits, there are rarely nutrients that pack this many positive health outcomes into one compound. Omega 3 fatty acid benefits include:

  • A reduced risk of heart disease
  • Healthy fetal development
  • Eye health, reducing dryness and improving retinal and macular health
  • Weight management
  • Supports mental health
  • Helps with cognitive function
  • Reduces inflammation
  • Improves joint mobility
  • Helps support the body with autoimmune disease
  • May reduce cancer risk
  • Helps reduce dry skin and hair.

My preference for a supplement in the office is a fish oil that is enteric coated, with many other properties. I really like it for clients who have trouble digesting fats, suffer from inflammation and autoimmune diseases. It has more power to act as an anti inflammatory than typical oils on the market. Have a look at this video on its properties:

Turnip greens are often not eaten. However, they are edible and supply much more nutrition than the root. They are an excellent source of vitamin A, C, E, B6 and folic acid. They are also a source of calcium, copper, and manganese. Turnip greens are a good source of dietary fibre.
