If you are using the principles of natural health to create a vibrant, thriving life for you and for your family, then you know that both gut health and a strong immune system are key. Once you understand the relationship between the two, then achieving perfect health and preventing disease can be easy!
Below are 20 modalities and substances designed to boost both your immunity and your gut health. Some of these suggestions focus on broad lifestyle changes while others narrow in on key substances.
This is by no means a complete list but it can definitely get you started on your way towards vibrant health!
(NaturalHealth365) If you experience chronic feelings of malaise and fatigue, a weak immune system, cardiovascular issues, poor digestion, anxiety, emotional imbalances, hair loss, sexual dysfunction, and sleeping issues, these describe the classical signs and symptoms of adrenal fatigue.
Once shrugged off by conventional practitioners as a pseudo-diagnosis, adrenal fatigue is a major culprit underlying modern health concerns today. Research shows that ongoing, chronic environmental stress is the driver behind hormonal imbalances that cause adrenal problems. Recognizing that you may be suffering from adrenal fatigue is the first step toward healing and recovery.
(NaturalHealth365) Kimchi – a mix of fermented, spiced vegetables that features cabbage as a key ingredient – is a traditional Korean specialty with a long history of culinary and medicinal use. In fact, experts say that people have been enjoying the benefits of kimchi for over 3,000 years!
(NaturalHealth365) Probiotics are foods that help build the population of healthy bacteria in the gut. Why is this so important to human health? Because poor digestive health leads to a wide range of health issues from allergies to many forms of cancer.
Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) has been declared one of the top 10 global public health threats to humanity.[i] It’s fueled by the misuse and overuse of antimicrobials and occurs when the microbiome is altered (dysbios) and ceratin bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites become impervious to the antimicrobial drugs conventionally used to treat them. In the U.S. alone, 2.8 million people are believed to develop antibiotic-resistant infections annually, and 35,000 people die as a result.[ii]
The foods we eat are a lot like seeds, which need to be planted into healthy soils (our digestive systems) in order to grow and bear fruit. We also have gut microflora and various other intestinal elements that act as “water” and “sunlight” to support a bounteous “yield.” In this case the successful digestive conversion of the foods we eat into the substances our bodies need to generate muscle tissue, cellular matrices, energy, and the various other building blocks of life.
There is an abundance of nutritional therapies that can help you get to new levels of health. I’ve been advocating them for decades now, but there is one that I’ve found to have phenomenal benefits in your overall wellness: the introduction of fermented foods to your diet.
Your body’s immune system and its role in cancer prevention really doesn’t get the attention it deserves in the prevailing paradigm of allopathic medicine. You’d be hard-pressed to find a conventional doctor or medical expert
Your body’s immune system and its role in cancer prevention really doesn’t get the attention it deserves in the prevailing paradigm of allopathic medicine.
You’d be hard-pressed to find a conventional doctor or medical expert who’s willing or knowledgeable enough to talk about natural immunity in the context of keeping your body free of cancer. At least not to the full extent of its true capacity.
And yet this information is vitally important. In fact, it just might be the most overlooked facet of cancer prevention that’s not being talked about by the conventional medical system today.
Assuming you’re getting all the nutrients you need from food and supplements (and your body is effectively flushing waste and toxins as it’s supposed to), your immune system should be fully equipped on its own to naturally thwart cancer from ever taking hold.
So why isn’t this the case for the tens of thousands of Americans who are diagnosed with cancer every year? The answer could lie in an underestimated component of your immune system that’s only just beginning to break the mainstream mold of thinking on this imperative issue: gut microflora.
