The Basic Recipe for Building a Strong Immune System

Maintaining a strong immune system requires following the basic tenets of good health. There is no magic involved here. Staying healthy, or regaining your health, requires some diligence in making good choices about nutrition, exercise, sleep and the rest, over a long period of time. Good health habits will minimize your risk of getting sick from ANY cause.

  • Maintain your stress; science has proven that stress and unresolved emotional issues have lingering negative effects on your health.
  • Optimize your vitamin D level with exposure to sunlight or a safe tanning bed; if this isn’t possible, take an oral vitamin D supplement
  • Drink plenty of clean water!  This is important with all the chemicals in water today!
  • Eat foods that are best for your body, like Shakeology!!
  • Optimize your insulin and leptin levels
  • Avoid excess sugar (especially fructose) and grain consumption
  • Avoid processed foods, chemical additives, artificial sweeteners, MSG, and all genetically modified ingredients
  • Consider taking a high-quality probiotic supplement, as your gastrointestinal system is an important part of your immune system
  • Exercise four to six times a week.  Using a plan like P90X, Insanity, or Turbofire will optimize the results.
  • Try to get eight restorative hours of sleep every night.
