Not feeling your best? Part 2
I have a younger client whose mother had been using our supplements for some time. He suffered with low immunity with regular colds, low energy and generally feeling unwell for no medical reason. Our first priority was to improve his immune system. Despite what you read, you cannot ‘boost’ your immune system.
Our immune system is a complex, interconnected group of cells and tissue types and is highly dependent on nutrients. Of these, the most important is Vitamin D which acts like a master controller of our immune responses. Then is a long list of trace minerals and some vitamins. I often talk to people who take vitamin C and Zinc for their immunity. These are important but just two of many. This is where a well formulated comprehensive multi-mineral, multi-vitamin and multi-antioxidant like Cell eXtra can be very helpful as it provides all the important nutrients, not just some of them.
Having regular colds, especially in winter, can be the first sign of poor immune responses. You may actually have a good immune system, but it may be half asleep or just disorganised. I put my client on an initial higher dose of my multi-nutritional formula to rapidly lift critical nutrients. We also included Vitamin D.
He has been delighted with the response. He has been through last winter without a cold and with much more energy. The bonus has been that the niggling low grade depression has gone, probably from lifting vitamin D.
Our bodies have a huge capacity to heal and restore but only if we give it the nutrients it needs. Give yourself a 3-month challenge on Cell eXtra; you may well be surprised.
