Certified by Constance: Give Your Immune System a Boost
Combating illness can feel like an uphill battle. Just when you think you’ve hit flat land, there is another mountain in the horizon that you have to endure.
I know this feeling all too well. Staying mentally, physically and emotionally balanced is hard enough at full health, let alone living with a compromised immune system. But you don’t need to scale these mountains alone. In the ten years I was housebound, fighting hard for my life, I discovered products and resources that helped improve my quality of life and my overall health, and I’m happy to share them with you in this installment of Certified by Constance Being in a position of poor health is not something I would wish for anyone. Unfortunately, it’s something that many of us have either had to go through or may have to deal with for the rest of our lives. Pharmaceutical medications and doctor visits are fine and well, but sometimes the smaller things can make a significant and lasting impact – and may offer even greater benefits than traditional western medicine. I’ve narrowed my list down to three products that are now part of my regular routine to help keep my immune system running properly and improve my overall well-being.
- Bellicon Mini Trampolines: You’re probably wondering why I’ve included a trampoline on this list. I can assure you it’s not just a backyard toy for children. Trampolines are a useful and fun way to manage pain control, cleanse your lymphatic system and much more. It provides that continuous movement and stimulation that is required for your body to function properly. Light jumping helps build endurance and increase energy, both of which are needed in order to strengthen your immune system. I love my Bellicon. It’s lightweight, durable and reasonably priced. I find it both a relaxing and joyful exercise, and I often take it with me to the office and bounce away while brainstorming.
- Allergen 23 Colloidal Silver: Colloidal silver is a natural antibiotic and disinfectant that has worked wonders for strengthening my immune system. Studies have confirmed that colloidal silver kills harmful bacterial, viral and fungal organisms, without damaging the good bacteria your body needs. It works in tandem with any pro-biotic regimen and won’t interfere with any necessary prescription medication. Essentially, it’s a great secret weapon to give your immune system a boost.
- Billy’s Infinity C: It’s a common practice to have a nice big glass of orange juice when you aren’t feeling well and for good reason: Vitamin C is a great source for immune support. Billy’s Infinity C is an all-natural vitamin C supplement, made in capsule or powder form, and quite delicious. The supplement is 100 percent organic and vegan, and there are no harmful chemicals or ascorbic acid involved. It works wonders if when you’re throat starts to feel a bit scratchy or you’re starting to feel a tad worn down. I use it as soon as I feel just the slightest bit under the weather to stop illness cold in its tracks.
This is just a brief list of some of the many products that I use to help strengthen my immune system and prevent illness. Staying healthy is the ultimate goal, and I hope that some of these resources may assist you in your times of need. Do you have any other great products that you think help prevent and/or fight illness? I’d love to hear your thoughts!
