Immune System Enhancement

When you feel run down and tired constantly, there’s a good chance you need to build up your immune system. Here are a few things that just might help you. As always, if you have allergies or any kind of food intolerance, consult your doctor before trying any things that are new to you - especially herbal supplements! Herbs all have positive and negative side effects - even if "Natural" Even nightshade and arsenic are natural.

Things You’ll Need

You’ll need a satisfactory for added extra foods and supplements to your diet from your doctor.

It will take about two weeks to see any improvements so patience is necessary!

+ A good multi-vitamin

+ And various supplements - all suggested below.

1. As simple as this sounds, take a good multi-vitamin every day, especially if you are dieting to lose weight. It’s hard to believe, but some people diet to gain weight. Just look at something you should not eat that’s loaded with calories, foods which you wish you could eat it. Find a multi-vitamin that has the balanced as follows = Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Beta-carotene, Bioflavonoids (the colored part of vegetables, fruits, flowers, herbs, and grains), Zinc, Magnesium, and Selenium.

2. Add garlic and onions to your meals. Cooked garlic and onions retain their antibacterial qualities. These two are great immune builders and natural antibiotics. Omega-3 fatty acids in fatty fish and flax oil increase the production of white blood cells that eliminate bad bacteria in the body.

3. Echinacea and Goldenseal Combo

Immune Enhancing Supplements can be added, depending on your personal needs and limitations. Some of the best are as follows:


CoQ10 is an enzyme, which is naturally found in many cells of the body. In fact, it is found in every single mitochondrial cell – and about 95% of your body’s energy is reportedly produced by these cells, which convert sugars and fats into energy. Your internal organs (like your heart) need the most energy, which is why you will find the highest concentrations of CoQ10 here.

Cat’s Claw

Cat’s Claw may help create support for the intestinal and immune systems of the body, and may also creates intestinal support with its ability to cleanse the entire intestinal tract. This cleansing helps create support for people experiencing different stomach and bowel disorders, including: colitis, Crohn’s disease, irritable bowel syndrome, and leaky bowel syndrome.

In addition, in one study, human volunteers who took Cat’s claw for 8 weeks showed improved DNA repair. Cat’s Claw can often be found combined with other ’immune’ herbs with similar healing properties such as Echinacea and may:

+ reduce pain and inflammation of rheumatism, arthritis and other types of inflammatory problems.

+ Have anti-tumor and anti-cancer properties that inhibits cancerous cell formation.

+ Promote the healing of wounds.

+ Be useful for treatment of gastric ulcers and intestinal complaints

+ Help to relieve chronic pain.

+ Enhance immunity by stimulating the immune system.

+ Help people experiencing stomach and bowel disorders, including colitis, Crohn’s disease, irritable bowel syndrome, leaky bowel syndrome, gastritis and duodenal ulcers, intestinal inflammation.

+ Help fight both viral and fungal infections such as Herpes and Candida

Siberian Ginseng or Ginseng Root

Ginseng may be effective for treating colds, coughs, rheumatism, neuralgia, gout, diabetes, anemia insomnia, stress, headache, backache and double vision. Women find it helpful in normalizing menstruation and easing childbirth. In an experiment study in Eastern Europe, ginseng was used effectively as a mouth was against Periodontal Disease which is a progressive destruction of the supporting structures of the teeth. Ginseng also counteracts the effects of physical and emotional stress, enhances memory, counteracts fatigue without caffeine, and improves stamina. Medically, ginseng stimulates the immune system, by spurring the production of the body’s own virus fighting chemicals, helps reduce cholesterol levels in the blood, has anti-clotting effects, reducing risk of arterial blood clots, helps control diabetes by reducing blood sugar levels, is known as an antioxidant, preventing the cumulative cell damage researchers believe cumulates in cancer, protects the liver from the effects of drug, alcohol and toxins, minimizes cell damage from radiation, and increases intestinal absorption of nutrients.

Ginkgo Biloba

Ginkgo has been used in traditional medicine to treat circulatory disorders and enhance memory. Scientific studies throughout the years have found evidence to support these uses. Although not all studies agree, ginkgo may be especially effective in treating dementia (including Alzheimer’s disease) and intermittent claudication (poor circulation in the legs). It also shows promise for enhancing memory in older adults. Laboratory studies have shown that ginkgo improves blood circulation by dilating blood vessels and reducing the stickiness of blood platelets.


Few studies have been published on goldenseal’s safety and effectiveness, and there is little scientific evidence to support using it for any health problem.

Clinical studies on a compound found in goldenseal, berberine, suggest that the compound may be beneficial for certain infections—such as those that cause some types of diarrhea, as well as some eye infections. However, goldenseal preparations contain only a small amount of berberine, so it is difficult to extend the evidence about the effectiveness of berberine to goldenseal.

NCCAM is funding research on goldenseal, including studies of antibacterial mechanisms and potential cholesterol-lowering effects. NCCAM is also funding development of research-grade goldenseal, to facilitate clinical studies.


Use like a course of antibiotics, but not for prolonged usage. I take Golden Seal/Echinacea combination to knock out bad infections 3 capsules 3 times a day for 10 days. I buy the 100 count and take them until they are gone - taking 4 the first time.

Poke Root Tincture 

Very good for chronic infections and pneumonia but take in small doses for no more than 3 months. One drop a day. (Consult your doctor.)

4.  Avoidmargarine, processed foods, white bread, white rice, sugary stuff, dairy products, polyunsaturated vegetable oils, salty snacks, alcohol, caffeine, and pollutants in the air.


5. Increase your intake of yogurt, ocean fish, broccoli, sea greens, ginger, fresh fruits & vegetables (especially spinach, sweet potatoes and carrots), whole grains, & cayenne pepper.


6. Slowly increase

- Exercise and reduce stress by using relaxation techniques.

- Your hours of sleep! Less than 8 hours a night reduces your immunity - you heal while you sleep is what my Mom always said!

- Drink lots of water a day to flush away the body’s toxins.

- Get at least 15 minutes of sun every couple of days to help your body produce vitamin D.
