The West Nile Virus

The West Nile Virus has been reported to be spreading. Symptoms can range from fever and headache to encephalitis, coma, paralysis and death. Not all who are bitten by infected mosquitos die, or for that matter, even get sick. The reason? Individual immune systems! A strong immune system is the best defense we have to combat a viral invasion. Is yours strong?

To Boost Your Immune System

Colloidal Silver, Elderberry Extract, Echinacea, Goldenseal, Vitamin A, C and E

An important step is to completely eliminate sugar.

In a report published by the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, "100 grams of sugar from glucose, fructose, sucrose, honey or orange juice caused a significant decrease in the ability of white blood cells to engulf and destroy bacteria. This decrease in immune function was still present five hours after sugar was consumed."* (Sanchez, A. et al. Role of sugars in human neutrophilic phagocytosis. Am J Clin Nutr 1973:26:180)

With a strong immune system, the chances of viral invasion are quickly diminished. Additionally, defenses to bacterial and parasitic invasion are strengthened, and allergic reactions are decreased. There is no downside to making sure the immune system is running at its peak!
