Why is it so important to strengthen your immune system?
A strong immune system is the key to good health.
The human body is an amazing combination of interactive systems geared to maintain a healthy balance through constant communication. Our immune system is like a cloak of armor, designed to protect us from the billions of organisms in our environment. These opportunistic bugs enter the body through breathing, eating, drinking and cuts in the skin.
When the immune system is functioning at the peak of efficiency, these microorganisms can be present in ones’ body but they have little effect. However, when an injury or an over abundance of physical or mental stress weakens the immune system, these opportunistic organisms are able to get a stronghold.
When our immunity defenses become overwhelmed, communication between systems begins to shut down and our body’s chemistry becomes off-balance and breaks down.
The Immune system is the only thing on the face of the eartch that can cure disease.
Olive leaf extract ("d-Lenolate®") in our Immunity Products provides our immune system with a powerful ally that improves our body's immunity defenses and neutralizes stressors that are preventing it from doing its job.* When the load is reduced, our immune system is able to bring the body’s chemistry back into balance, systemic communication is re-established, and our body is able to restore health.
It is also important to realize that d-Lenolate® is not a drug. As a result, taken in recommended amounts, one may not notice an overnight improvement. In some cases, two or three months of regular ingestion are required before significant improvements are realized.
The Detoxification Process—A Healthy Sign
In some cases, there may be a quick and somewhat adverse reaction called a Herxheimer Reaction. Commonly called “detox” or “die off”, this refers to symptoms generated by a detoxification process.
As the body begins to deal with dead microbes, one may temporarily experience a variety of symptoms. This occurs as organisms die and the body begins a process to eliminate them from the body.
During this process, one can feel ill or develop a skin reaction. This is actually a good sign indicating that the olive leaf extract is working to help the body and has begun a cleansing action that will free the immune system to function at full capacity.
How to Handle the Effects of Detoxification
The best way to maximize the power of d-Lenolate® and limit any adverse reactions from the process is to drink four cups of water in between each dose.
A hot Epsom salt bath and therapeutic massage may also be helpful during this period to energize the lymphatic system and aid in cleansing the system.
For minimal discomfort such as a headache or muscle/joint pain, a simple over-the-counter analgesic such as aspirin or ibuprofen usually suffices. For more than minimal discomfort, one might consider reducing the daily intake until the body eliminates the toxins and dead microbes. One can then resume the original usage and if desirable, increase it slowly.
