Antibiotics are being massively over-prescribed, and that is bad news for a number of reasons, the most devastating is that they cause long term damage to our cells.
There are lots of things we can do to boost our immunity with no downsides.
One is to increase our use of particular ‘superfoods’.
There are many superfoods that get plenty of mentions on the internet, and you may already be using some – such as turmeric, aloe vera, chlorella and spirulina.
They all have great health properties and I recommend them all.
Here are some others, less well known:
Noni, a fruit from Australia and India combats inflammation and boosts immunity, and may be good for cancer pain relief
Mangosteen: a small purple tree fruit grown in Southeast Asi.
In the 19th century, the mangosteen was given the nickname “the queen of fruits,” due to a rumour that they had been particularly sought by Queen Victoria.
It’s health effects are possibly down to a group of chemical called xanthonoids. Effects include immune boosting, improved pancreatic and cardiovascular function, decreased inflammation & antibacterial properties.
Bonus, it’s an AMPK activator like ganoderma (the mushroom in the green tea & coffee I drink) – see this video https://youtu.be/cyhyFbuA3pM
Acerola Cherry – stops the growth and spread of lung cancer.
Japanese Knotweed – this one is a real surprise.
We know it as a weed, but it has more than 100 chemical compounds that may have beneficial uses.
Boosts the immune system and may be effective against the deadly flesh eating MRSA
May help with Asthma, and protect the liver, heart and brain from stroke, Alzheimer’s’ and Parkinson’s.
May also help improve sleep.
So should you get all of these in your diet?
It would certainly seem like a good idea, and I do so almost every day, because the ‘Fruits & Greens’ powder we sell at the clinic contains everything I’ve mentioned above and far more.
You can pick some up on your next visit if you are not already using it. Or we can post it to you anywhere in the UK (and probably the USA too).
