Tips for Building Your Immune System (According To an MD)

The immune system is at least as critical as your brain in overall health. Of course, every organ and system is important but immune dysfunction is a major cause of every illness. Building your immune system is more important than learning anything else!

Everything affects everything in the body, and a chief regulator of every organ is the immune system. Inflammation is the major effect of immune distress and immune function affecting all brain and mood functions, perhaps more than other organs.

Even aging is a chronic low-grade reaction to inflammation. The causes of inflammation include overconsumption of omega 6 fatty acids, sugar, salt, alcohol, bacterial and viral infections, allergies, parasites, hormone imbalances, genetically modified foods, heavy metals, pesticides.

Furniture, fabrics and rugs, and many personal hygiene products, all add stress. Building your immune system requires low stress. Stress is emotional, mental, chemical, electrical and radioactive. The number one requirement for a healthy immune system is low stress.

Stress creates inflammation, anxiety, depression, pain and insomnia. All of these are frequent co-factors with fatigue, muscle weakness, and eventually every conceivable organ dysfunction, especially of digestion, with GERD, indigestion, irritable bowel, constipation or diarrhea.

Stress also leads to arthritis, acne, hypertension or hypotension, irregular heartbeat, diabetes, obesity, osteoporosis, fractures with minimal physical stress, heart attack, stroke and cancer.

Building a healthy immune system begins with nutrition, especially consuming adequate Vitamin K 2 and D3.

Vitamin K 2 deficiency leads not only to Alzheimer’s Disease but K2 is essential for absorbing D3. Approximately 80% of Americans are partially or highly deficient in D 3 and K. Deficiencies in these essentials lead to depression, insomnia, arthritis, metabolic syndrome, type 2 diabetes,

Heart disease, osteoporosis, estrogen or testosterone imbalances, and of course a weakened immune system and inflammation. At the top of the list of nutritional factors for building a healthy immune system is chlorella, a rare plant source of vitamin B 12.

Low levels of B 12 lead to arthritis, overactive thyroid or Graves’ disease, diabetes, hypogonadism, Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, lupus Sjogren’s syndrome, Raynaud’s syndrome, gout, vasculitis, ankylosing spondylitis, and even rheumatoid arthritis.

Second to chlorella is adequate Omega 3, the major benefit of which is anti-inflammation and antioxidant effects of DHA/EPA which of course primarily affect heart, mood, anxiety, depression  Although fish oil is the best-known source of omega 3’s, emu oil is equally good

Additionally, emu oil is far less likely to have mercury contamination! The anti-inflammatory benefits include significant help with rheumatoid arthritis, Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, psoriasis, lupus erythematosus, multiple sclerosis, and migraine.

Building a healthy immune system is far easier than treating the diseases of a weak immune system which all stem from inflammation.

The most popular anti-inflammatory drugs are aspirin, ibuprofen, and ketoprofen, these drugs often cause diarrhea and even bleeding.

Turmeric or its extract curcumin tops the list of safe and effective anti-inflammatory agents. Interestingly its benefits are increased when given with piperine or black pepper. Curcumin’s cousin, ginger also has significant anti-inflammatory benefits.

Turmeric and ginger decrease cortisol, the stress hormone, and are even more powerful when added to curcumin. Both are improved with piperine.

Chromium is also a requirement for optimal regulation of sugar & insulin. Chromium also assists weight loss, decreases inflammation and oxidative stress, while assisting in the metabolism of protein and carbohydrates, decreasing cravings and improving blood sugar regulation.

In addition to these nutritional supplements, the intestinal system is the most important for overall metabolic health, containing many more microorganisms than the total cells of your body! INDEED, these trillions of cells are ultimately the controllers of nutrition and health.

These health-enhancing bacteria are probiotics and they require prebiotics, mostly as fiber and sturdy starches. Seventy percent of your immune cells are the probiotics. Your intestine is ultimately the determinant of overall physical, mental and emotional health.

Unfortunately lactobacillus acidophilus, the primary probiotic occurs naturally in milk, and milk is often a trigger for inflammation and autoimmunity. Fulvic and humic acids are essential pre and probiotics, which chelate or bind toxins to remove them.

Building a healthy immune system can best be done with supplements providing vitamin D 3, K 2, cilantro, ginger, curcumin, aloe vera, astralgus, cordyceps mushroom, dandelion root, glutathione, piperine, goldenseal, rhodiola rosea, silymarin, pre/probiotics and L-taurine.

In building your healthy immune system, you are ultimately decreasing every disease, decreasing inflammation, pain, anxiety and depression, while improving health and longevity.

Man sitting in a chair holding his head as he struggles with managing stress and anxiety.

A Doctor’s Best Tips For Managing Stress And Anxiety

There is no escaping it. We are surrounded by stressors every day. And these stressors come in many different forms – physical, emotional, mental, environmental, electromagnetic, nutritional, and many others. It is no wonder that you’re looking for tips to help you in managing stress and anxiety.

But let’s be clear about stress. In and of itself, stress isn’t necessarily bad.

In fact, acute stress can help us adjust to challenge and accomplish things we didn’t know we could.

And then there’s chronic stress. This type of stress is omnipresent. Chronic stress is a fact of modern life. You cannot escape it because we’re surrounded by it. The food we eat can cause stress. The entertainment we choose can cause stress. Staying up late, too much cellphone use, our jobs, our kids, our families, our thoughts, traffic, too much exercise – all of these, and so many more, add up and contribute to the chronic stressors present in our lives.

And it is these chronic stressors that can trigger anxiety.

What happens when we do not have the skills for effectively managing stress and anxiety?

Chronic stress is behind 80% of the wear and tear on our bodies, minds, and spirits. This means that chronic stress is at the root of depression, anxiety, diabetes, hypertension, high cholesterol levels, arthritis, heart disease, cancer and so many, many more of the diseases and mental health challenges facing so many Americans today.

How do you manage stress and anxiety?

Since chronic stress is part of our everyday lives, it is essential that we each know how to manage stress and anxiety in ways that work for us. However, sometimes what we may think works for us is just another stressor.

Many believe that anti-anxiety drugs are the best way to help them cope with their chronic stress. They make an appointment with their physician for the sole purpose of getting a prescription for an anti-anxiety drug.

Unfortunately, although these drugs calm, they also convert anxiety into depression and shrink the brain! With the resulting depression, these people ask their doctor for another prescription to help them feel less depressed. And the bottom line is that pharmaceuticals for chronic stress and anxiety tend to just be other stressors that inhibit the body’s best functioning.

Other people take the route of self-medication to deal with their chronic stress and anxiety. Self-medication often appears as addictions – alcohol, food, street drugs, exercise, shopping, sex, etc.

All self-medicating does is numb the stress and anxiety, so it does not feel as bad – at least in the moment the addiction is being indulged. But addictions are just more stressors added on top of all the others.

Luckily, there are more empowering and safer stress management techniques. Here are 6 I highly recommend:

  1. Optimal nutrition

    You have probably heard the adage, “You are what you eat.” You will not literally turn into a donut if that is your favorite breakfast food. But what makes up the donut is what will make up the fuel and structural material your body has to keep you healthy and managing stress and anxiety.

    The better your nutrition, the easier time you will have dealing with chronic stress.

  2. Adequate sleep

    Adults need 7 to 9 hours of sleep every night. It is during sleep that our bodies and brains have the time they need to repair, restore, and reenergize. If we do not get the sleep we need, we are leaving ourselves more susceptible to the negative impacts of chronic stress.

  3. Moderate exercise

    Physical exercise is one of the best natural ways to manage stress and anxiety. Thirty minutes of moderate physical exercise daily is all it takes.

  4. Breathing techniques

    Breathing techniques are a common means of reducing stress and anxiety. One of the simplest is just breathing in for 6 seconds and breathing out for 6 seconds. Doing this for just a few minutes can reduce your blood pressure and your stress/anxiety level.

  5. Biogenics®

    Biogenics® means origin of life and is a series of mental exercises designed to help you learn to regulate your own body functioning at will. With this skill you can control all types of chronic stress and anxiety.

    Shealy-Sorin Biogenics™ offers essential nervous system and autonomic nervous system retraining techniques starting with Dr. Shealy’s original Biogenics® technique from 1974. Dr. Shealy’s original technique is based on humanistic psychology, safe and effective tools and techniques going back to the 1800s and 1900s before drugs and surgery became the default solution for dealing with the effects of chronic stress.

    Currently, there are over 60 Shealy-Sorin Biogenics™ exercises for you to explore and more are being developed regularly.

  6. Holistic medical support

    At the Shealy-Sorin Wellness Institute we have developed and practice a number of protocols and techniques for combatting the effects of chronic stress. In fact, we are often able to reverse the effects of it. We have such success because we focus on the entire person and help to stabilize and optimize the brain, nervous system, mind, and other organ systems because stress affects literally everything.

Keep in mind that there is no cookie-cutter approach to managing stress and anxiety. What works for you will be unique to you and what works for you in one situation may not work for you in another. That is why it is important that you experiment with all of these techniques and reach out for help if you need it.

Woman dropping a bliss oil onto her hand in preparation for a transcutaneous acupuncture treatment for depression.

Ask The Doctor: Can Acupuncture Help Depression?

The simple answer is yes! Acupuncture can help depression. But we need to look at the broadest possible view of this most common problem. Depression is the result of feelings of loss of life, function, finances, love or faith. It can result from abuse or actual or imagined harm.

Conventional medicine treats depression with antidepressant drugs which never cure! 

In fact four major articles including one in the New England Journal of Medicine, state that IF all the negative studies had been “allowed” to be published the net result would be ZERO benefit from antidepressant drugs!

Seventy-five percent of negative studies are not allowed to be published! In fact, since the rate of suicide is increased with antidepressant drugs, the net result is worse than no treatment at all. 

And for most depression, psychological counseling alone is equally useless.

Can acupuncture treat depression – yes, but let us start with some basics.

Depression is the result of many possibilities but generally involves a deficiency of serotonin, the bright-eyed bushy-tailed wake up hormone. Serotonin is made by the body if you have adequate tryptophan, B complex, and a bit of lithium.

In fact, in the 1970’s I gave a talk at the DeBakey Conference on the value of 7000 mg of tryptophan and 50 mg of B complex. To my surprise, The National Enquirer carried the story on its front page. Twenty-four hours later the country was sold out of tryptophan. After 48 hours the Japanese had doubled the wholesale price of tryptophan. 

In 1976 I discovered that the Liss Pain Suppressor, applied transcranially, relieved depression in at least 80% of people, and raised serotonin. Later I showed it also increased beta endorphin, the natural opioid.

In 1972, I took Dr. Felix Mann’s course in acupuncture and learned his treatment for non-violent madness, a severe case of anxiety and depression. And of course, there are several traditional acupuncture protocols for depression. All are safer and more effective than any drug! Once a week acupuncture treatment for 12 weeks with needles at CV 4, CV 8, CV 12, LI 4, MH 6, GB 34, ST 36 and K 3 works well. 

Can transcutaneous acupuncture help depression?

Yes, it is also quite effective in helping relieve depression. 

Once a day transcutaneous acupuncture treatment with Fire Bliss raises DHEA, the anti-stress hormone, and is better than all drugs in the world, improving 70% of depressed individuals.

Can acupuncture cure depression? Of course. Using Air Bliss transcutaneous acupuncture daily cures 80% of depressed people while raising oxytocin, the nurturing, bonding hormone. Couple it with Fire Bliss and you cure a whopping 94% of depressed people!

Interestingly, there are several other ways to help depression in addition to acupuncture.

In addition to acupuncture, TENS, Cranial Electrical Stimulation, Biogenics®, the use of Shealy-Sorin Gamma PEMF® can each be useful for improving depression, anxiety, drug addiction, circulation, and blood pressure. Medical Intuition and Spiritual Healing are also highly effective in relieving depression.

Thirty minutes of moderately vigorous physical exercise daily is also more effective than any drug in the world. Acupressure on the proper acupuncture points may work as well as needles or the oils. Massage, reiki, hot soaks or saunas all help relieve depression.

And there are numerous herbs worth exploring: St. John’s Wort, Kava Kava, Lemon Balm, Gingko Biloba, Skullcap, Hawthorne, Aswagandha, Fo Ti, as well as omega 3 fatty acids, and SAM-e. For most individuals, 50 mg of B Complex and 15 to 20 mg of Lithium orotate help greatly.

Autogenic Training is one of the most valuable of all tools for treating depression, at least as an adjunct with any and all other approaches. Meditation, prayer and spiritual healing are also reinforcers of all other therapeutic approaches 

For those with the most intense depression, especially those who have been depressed for many years, an intense one- or two-week, 40- or 80-hour treatment program at Shealy-Sorin Wellness Institute in Springfield, Missouri offers the best opportunity for significant and long-standing recovery from depression

Can electro-acupuncture cure depression? 

We began using electro-acupuncture in the 1950’s, and through the years have polished the program to include the wider variety discussed here. In 1971 we began our one-month intense treatment program for chronic pain and depression. 

Even in the first years, our success rate was 75%. Over the next few years, with expanding holistic approaches, the program was decreased to two weeks and now often works well in only one week. Of course, the wide variety of approaches discussed here are individually tailored at the Shealy-Sorin Wellness Institute to achieve an 85% success rate. 

Acupuncture in all forms can be used to effectively treat depression. When it is coupled with the other modalities mentioned above, it is possible to achieve as much as a 94% cure rate.

A Doctor’s Advice: Why You Should Consider An Anti-Inflammatory Diet For Chronic Pain

Virtually all symptoms and illnesses are the result of inflammation and everything affects everything. Other than breathing and water, food is the most essential for life itself. Following an anti-inflammatory diet for chronic pain is effective and fairly simple.

Eighty percent of your food should be vegetables and fruits and twenty percent protein. Since the average American eats only 2.2 servings of veggies and fruits daily, we have a long way to go to get healthy and prevent pain and illness.

Unfortunately, much of the soil is deficient in magnesium; even the vegetables and fruits in our stores are not adequate. In fact, even so-called organic foods are contaminated with glyphosate, since 65% of rain has Roundup® in it.

Unless you raise all your own food, it is impossible to get what you need to avoid inflammation and pain. Since 80% of Americans live in homes, at the top of the list for optimal health is to replace your lawn with a vegetable and fruit garden! As an added bonus, tending the garden is stress-reducing.

The anti-inflammatory diet for chronic pain means you eat nothing from a fast food restaurant and buy nothing from the center aisles at grocery stores! And, if possible you buy as much food as possible from a trusted organic farmer.

You also include as much fish and non-processed meat as possible. Incidentally, unless you are allergic to dairy, milk, plain yogurt, and eggs are excellent sources of protein. 

Although legumes have good protein, there is no taurine, a conditionally essential amino acid, in any plant food. Taurine works synergistically with magnesium to keep your cells electrically balanced. 

And of course, in today’s highly polluted world, we need considerably greater intakes of the B complex, E, D 3 and C vitamins. One of the major causes of inflammation is inadequate basic vitamins.

Finally, you need another essential: methylsupfonymethane, organic Sulphur, which helps prevent Alzheimer’s disease, allergies, asthma, chronic fatigue syndrome, chronic pain, constipation, diabetes, diverticulosis, hypertension, high cholesterol, and migraine.

MSM is also useful in preventing osteoarthritis, osteoporosis, rheumatoid arthritis, scleroderma, tendonitis and TMJ syndrome. In fact, MSM is a major regulator of immune function, including protection from developing cancer.

If you are not going to commit to eating adequate vegetables and fruits, you may consider concentrates such as tart cherry juice concentrate, ORAC RICH GREENS and Kyani Sunrise. Beyond following an anti-inflammatory diet for chronic pain there are other essential habits to reduce chronic pain.

These include avoiding sugar, artificial foods, fluoridated water and getting adequate physical exercise and sleep. Everything affects everything, and that includes your thinking about life and purpose in life. Happiness is an inside job. Every thought is a prayer.

Anger, anxiety, guilt and depression are inflammatory emotions which can cause as much pain as a big physical injury. You cannot afford the luxury of wallowing in emotional trauma. This means that you need to have personal spiritual awareness.

Each of us is much bigger than any individual. We need an anti-inflammatory attitude towards everything in life. It means we need to sense purpose in our life and to do whatever we can to help others. The single best way to do this is to practice autogenic focus.

Physical exercise is one of the best anti-inflammatory tools, not marathon running, just moderate movement. Walking, yoga, using a vibration platform, bouncing in place are all good. Sitting all day is inflammatory! 

Stress of all kinds is inflammatory. Physical stress, inadequate nutrition, junk food, inactivity, pollution and all emotional distress create inflammation and pain. Total stress reduction is the single greatest way to minimize inflammation 

The anti-inflammatory diet for chronic pain is a life commitment to self-health, which includes every aspect of life – nutrition, sleep, physical activity and attitude. If you need more help then you may benefit from reading 90 Days To Self-Health.

Woman standing on a rock outcropping overlooking a lush valley.

What is Optimal Health and How Can You Achieve It?

Optimal Health is freedom from all signs and symptoms of illness or dysfunction. Assuming you were born with good health and have had excellent childhood nurturing and continuing optimal health habits, you are likely to have optimal health well into your 90’s!

Of course, you have to have adequate food, clothes and shelter and be free of anxiety and depression. For most individuals, this ultimately means being self-actualized, which means being at your very best every day.

Maslow said, “I think of the self-actualizing man not as an ordinary man with something added, but rather as the ordinary man with nothing taken away.”  

Of course, just looking at health habits, at least 97% of people cannot be self-actualized because they lack one to 5 ESSENTIAL health habits!

What is optimal health? The lack of symptoms and dysfunction requires optimal nutrition, exercise and sleep, and relative freedom from the pollution of air and water. 

Optimal nutrition requires 80% vegetables and fruit and 20% protein.

Eighty percent of food sold in the United States is junk, loaded with sugar and artificial additives. In general, potatoes, sugar and white rice should be avoided. That includes all those packaged dry products on the center aisles at grocery stores and at all fast-food restaurants.

Optimal nutrition means eating total calories that provide you a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 18 to 24. 

But optimal nutrition is not enough to achieve optimal health. To achieve optimal health you must also:

  • Exercise a minimum of 30 minutes five days a week 
  • Not smoke
  • Drink minimal alcohol
  • Not need any drugs
  • Sleep 7 or 8 hours every night

Beyond the care of your body, optimal health ultimately means that you are happy, that you have a network of friends (true for most people), and are organized and responsible. These are conscientious individuals who live longer and healthier than those who are not conscientious.

For most individuals, it means having a beloved mate and a family, with a home, and a meaningful lifework. The purpose in life is to help other people, and almost all jobs provide something of value to others. 

It also often means having a significant spiritual life. Spiritual health is a feeling of hope, peace, tranquility, and oneness with God and the universe. Meditation, prayer and a wide variety of religious practices keep one feeling positive about life itself. If you do not have such, practice this: Autogenic training Basic Schultz.

There is a lot that is under your control when it comes to achieving optimal health. However, not all is.

The biggest problem in achieving optimal health is avoiding poison!

City water in most cities is polluted with fluoride, one of the worst poisons in the world. If we do not get rid of fluoridation within the next 20 years, there will be no more children. Male sterility today is 20 million sperm count, already down from 150 million 50 years ago!

What is optimal health? Freedom from poison in food, water and air.  Air quality in most cities is far from optimal. In addition, the electromagnetic background is toxic as is the background of radioactivity. Since 1940 background radioactivity has increased many times.

How can you tell if you have optimal health?

Optimally healthy individuals have longer telomeres, the tips of DNA, higher natural levels of DHEA, the natural anti-stress hormone, lower cortisone and adrenalin, normal blood pressure and blood sugar. They work no more than 40 hours a week and take time to enjoy life. They have higher levels of D 3, vitamin C, and antioxidants. They have essentially no symptoms, no anxiety, no depression.

Unfortunately, not more than 3% of Americans enjoy this state of optimal health. 

Are you ready to change your habits to those necessary for optimal health?

So, if you ARE ONE OF THE 97% LACKING ESSENTIAL HABITS, now is the time to come to the rescue of your life and health. Start with your nutrition by avoiding wheat, white rice, potatoes, fast-food restaurants, and everything in the grocery store except vegetables, fruits, dairy, and non-processed meat.

If you do not already eat at least 5 servings of veggies and fruits daily, get ORAC-RICH GREENS and Moringa Olifera Super Mix and add those in a morning slush. Beyond that eat only items in the last paragraph.

What is optimal health? After the diet changes, consider bouncing for health

Then commit to sleeping 7 or 8 hours every night!

Finally, commit to doing Autogenic Training twice every day for 3 months. After 3 months, you will be joining the growing number of happy, longer-living, optimally healthy Americans. Become Self-Actualized.

Fluorescent sign reminding us to breathe which is a effect natural anti-anxiety remedy.

8 Natural Anti-Anxiety Remedies That Really Work (According To An MD)

Anxiety is the major emotional/mental distress facing Americans today. Most turn to anti-anxiety drugs to alleviate their symptoms, but anti-anxiety drugs are among the worst of all pharmaceuticals. Fortunately, natural anti-anxiety remedies are thousands of times safer and more effective than any mood drug! 

All mood drugs are addicting and never cure anxiety or depression. 

Interestingly 75% of the negative studies on these useless, dangerous drugs are forbidden by the PharmacoMafia from being published! 

Anxiety leads not only to mental distress and physical illnesses but can also lead to anger, depression, and guilt. It is the reaction to fear of any kind—fear of injury, death, poverty, abandonment by a loved one or by God. 

The following # natural anti-anxiety remedies are the ones I most often recommend:

1. Detach

When you feel anxiety, immediately ask yourself whether the fear is real or likely. Then ask, can I fix it or overcome the threat? 

If it is obviously not fixable, then learn to release it into the hands of God, accept and detach. Twenty-seven thousand articles show 80% success in anxiety relief by simply detaching! 

When it comes to learning how to detach, the twice-daily practice of Autogenic Training is more effective than all the world’s psychologists and psychiatrists. And of course, there are 60 Biogenics exercises which add a wide variety of physical, mental, emotional and spiritual exercises to balance your body mind and soul. 

2. Herbal remedy

Valerian root is an herb that is far safer and better than any pharmaceutical for anxiety relief.

3. Optimal nutrition

Natural anti-anxiety remedies also include optimal nutrition. This includes adequate vitamin B complex, tryptophanlithium orotate and antioxidants which are essential. The next best assistant is taurine, 3000 to 4000 mg daily. 

Of course 80 percent of your food should be vegetables and fruits and 20% should be meat, eggs, and dairy. Wheat is toxic because of glyphosate! Avoid anything in aluminum cans. And avoid fluoridated water as a major poison!

Sperm count since fluoridation has decreased from 150 million to 40 million. Men become infertile at 20 million! If we do not stop fluoridation, within 10 to 20 years men will be universally infertile! I have been treating infertile men for thirty years already.

If you have any silver fillings, find a sane holistic dentist to remove them. They are fifty to sixty percent mercury! POISON. The dental industry is as evil as the tobacco industry using mercury and pushing fluoride which has NO health benefit and universally is on the verge of causing total infertility! 

Additionally, you need to avoid sugar, wheat, and all artificial foods. Drink not more than two cups of coffee daily.

4. Physical exercise

Physical exercise is one of the best natural anti-anxiety remedies. Thirty minutes of moderate physical exercise is far superior to Valium or any anti-anxiety drug! Using a Vibe machine, a trampoline, taking a brisk walk or practicing yoga 30 minutes every day beats all mood drugs!

5. Deep relaxation and adequate sleep

The Shealy RelaxMate, with flashing blue frequencies between 1 and 7 cycles per second produces deep relaxation in at least 90% of people. The Liss Cranial Stimulator, now called Fisher Wallace used one hour in the morning raises serotonin.

Serotonin is the bright-eyed wake-up hormone and beta endorphin, the natural narcotic. These safe electrical devices are many more times effective than drugs or psychotherapy. And they are 100% safe. The only contraindication is a pacemaker. 

The single best natural remedy for anxiety is the Shealy-Sorin Gamma PEMF. This is the only PEMF device that puts the brain into gamma, the in the zone state of detached joy, a state achieved by long practicing meditators.

Adults need 7 to 8 hours of sleep. Yet many do not get enough sleep. Get enough sleep.

6. Past Life Therapy

The most effective natural psychological tool for overcoming anxiety is Past Life Therapy. Often unfinished anger, guilt, depression or anxiety from the past leaves a gnawing anxiety. It can be from childhood or from a previous incarnation. 

Remember that reincarnation was part of Christianity until 325AD when it was removed from the Bible because they did not want people to think they had a second chance. Read REINCARNATION IN CHRISTIANITY by Geddes McGregor!

7. Breathing techniques

There are dozens of natural anti-anxiety remedies that use breathing to reduce anxiety. The simplest is just breathing in and out slowly, 5 to 6 seconds in, and 5 to 6 seconds out. Doing this just a few minutes most often reduces blood pressure to normal and quickly relieves anxiety.

8. Intensive Holistic Therapy

For those who do not or cannot overcome anxiety with the tools above, consider a one- or two-week intensive holistic therapy program at Shealy-Sorin Wellness Institute. Forty or 80 hours of comprehensive, holistic therapy can help the most serious chronic physical, emotional, and spiritual problems. It is far better than a year of weekly hour-long sessions of psychotherapy!

When you look at this list of natural anti-anxiety remedies you and see that they include the reduction of all physical, mental, emotional, and chemical stressors!  

When you regularly use these natural remedies, you will find that it becomes easier to release your anxiety, detach from those things you cannot change and be at peace.

Eating an abundance of fruits and vegetables like these can help combat the signs of a weakened immune system.

5 Surprising Signs of a Weakened Immune System & How To Strengthen It

Everything affects everything in the body, and a chief regulator of every organ is the immune system. So, it is vital that you know the signs of a weakened immune system.

The 5 Signs of a Weakened Immune System:

  1. Inflammation
  2. Anxiety
  3. Depression
  4. Pain
  5. Insomnia

Inflammation is the major effect of immune distress and immune function affecting all brain and mood functions, perhaps more than other organs.

Even aging itself is a chronic low-grade reaction to inflammation. The causes of inflammation include overconsumption of omega 6 fatty acids, sugar, salt, alcohol, bacterial and viral infections, allergies, parasites, hormone imbalances, genetically modified foods, heavy metals, pesticides, furniture fabrics and rugs, and many personal hygiene products, including all stress. 

Stress is emotional, mental, chemical, electrical, and radioactive.

All of these are frequent co-factors with fatigue, muscle weakness, and eventually every conceivable organ dysfunction, especially of digestion, with GERD, indigestion, irritable bowel, constipation or diarrhea, as well as visible inflammation, arthritis, acne, hypertension or hypotension, irregular heartbeat, diabetes, obesity, osteoporosis, fractures with minimal physical stress, heart attack, stroke and cancer. 

How To Strengthen A Weakened Immune System

Maintenance of a healthy immune system begins with nutrition, especially consuming adequate Vitamin K2 and Vitamin D3. K2 deficiency leads not only to Alzheimer’s Disease but K2 is essential for absorbing D3. 

Approximately 80% of Americans are partially or highly deficient in D3 and K. Deficiencies in these essentials lead to depression, insomnia, arthritis, metabolic syndrome, type 2 diabetes, heart disease, osteoporosis, estrogen or testosterone imbalances, and of course a weakened immune system and inflammation.

Next at the top of the list of nutrition to support your immune system is chlorella, a rare plant source of vitamin B-12. Low levels of B-12 lead to arthritis, overactive thyroid or Graves’ disease, diabetes, hypogonadism, Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, lupus Sjogren’s syndrome, Raynaud’s syndrome, gout, vasculitis, ankylosing spondylitis, and even rheumatoid arthritis. 

Note the 5 signs of a weakened immune system, are just major signs so that essentially every disease is at least partially the result of a weakened immune system, affecting every organ.

Second to chlorella is adequate Omega 3, the major benefit of which is anti-inflammation and antioxidant effects of DHA/EPA which of course primarily affect heart, mood, anxiety, and depression.  

Although fish oil is the best-known source of omega 3’s, emu oil is equally good and is far less likely to have mercury contamination! The anti-inflammatory benefits include significant help with rheumatoid arthritis, Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, psoriasis, lupus erythematosus, multiple sclerosis, and migraine.

Inflammation is the most damaging of the signs of a weakened immune system. So, decreasing inflammation is critical to improving your immune system’s functioning. 

And although the most popular anti-inflammatory drugs are aspirin, Ibuprofen, and ketoprofen, these drugs often cause gastrointestinal problems including diarrhea and even bleeding, there are safe natural remedies. 

Turmeric or its extract curcumin tops the list of safe and effective anti-inflammatory agents. Interestingly its benefits are increased when given with piperine or black pepper.

Curcumin’s cousin, ginger also has significant anti-inflammatory benefits, decreasing cortisol, the stress hormone, and is even more powerful when added to curcumin. Both are improved with piperine. 

Chromium is a requirement for optimal regulation of sugar & insulin. Chromium also assists weight loss, decreases inflammation and oxidative stress, while assisting in metabolism of protein and carbohydrates, decreasing cravings and improving blood sugar regulation.

In addition to these nutritional supplements, the intestinal system is the most important for overall metabolic health, containing many more microorganisms than the total cells of your body! INDEED, these trillions of cells are ultimately the controllers of nutrition and health. 

These health-enhancing bacteria are probiotics and they require prebiotics, mostly as fiber and sturdy starches. Seventy percent of your immune cells are the probiotics. Your intestine is ultimately the determinant of overall physical, mental and emotional health.

Unfortunately lactobacillus acidophilus, the primary probiotic occurs naturally in milk, and milk is often a trigger for inflammation and autoimmunity problems. Fulvic and humic acids are essential pre and probiotics, which chelate or bind toxins to remove them.

The signs of a weakened immune system can be best reduced with vitamin D3, K2, cilantro, ginger, curcumin, aloe vera, astralgus, cordyceps mushroom, dandelion root, glutathione, piperine, golden seal, rhodiola rosea, silymarin, pre/probiotics and L-taurine.

In strengthening your immune system, you are ultimately decreasing inflammation, pain, anxiety and depression, while improving health and longevity.

Sugar Blues – The Dark Side of Sweet

William Duffy’s book SUGAR BLUES should have been the death knell to the exorbitant use of sugar (sucrose). Of course, half a century earlier Price and Pottenger (NUTRITION AND PHYSICAL DEGENERATION) had scientifically documented the role of sugar and white flour as major contributors to DISEASE, ranging from dental decay to atherosclerosis and cancer, especially of the colon. Much of this took place before the plague of McDonald’s and its fast-food clones, the increased processing of food and the maddening array of artificial additives.

And sugar certainly contributes to the epidemic of depression.

There are only 4 primary tastes: sweet, sour, bitter and salty. Most of the overtones to these tastes come from the wide array of aromas that are part of food’s enticement. It is hard to fathom why such artificial and unhealthy practices as additions of sugar, white flour and white rice became staples. None of these is NATURAL. All are much inferior to the original products. All are deficient in fiber, minerals and vitamins, all of which are essential for health and life. White flour has NO fiber and is oxymoronically ‘enriched’ with one-seventh the normal content of B 6. Sugar has ZERO, ZIP, NO nutrient VALUE. Indeed, it sucks vital nutrients from whatever other sources you have.

ARTIFICIAL sweetners such as aspartame, ‘UNEQUAL’ and Splenda are chemical slop at best and toxins at worst. These and saccharine are not food and should be abandoned by anyone with an IQ of 90 and above. And for those with lower IQ, these nonsense chemicals may be even worse! Aspartame at least significantly worsens obesity, migraine, epilepsy and hypertension. And constantly stimulating your sweet tooth is a major assistant to developing insulin malfunctions.

Are there any good, healthy sweets? Yes, of course. Fruits and honey. For almost all people these are healthier and more desirable than any other sweet-tasting foods. Honey is sweeter than sugar, tastes better and is an excellent antioxidant.

Incidentally, xylitol has been touted as a great substitute and it may be minimally better than sugar. However, it does raise blood sugar, cause release of insulin and has led to serious complications even in dogs! Its only use might be as a nasal spray in children with frequent ear infections, where regular use does appear to be helpful.

Fructose is also not healthier although it is twice as sweet as sugar so that less is needed to satisfy sweetness.

Now, if you are really healthy, eat an otherwise good diet, etc, I do not feel a need to be a total nihilist. For healthy people an occasional dose of sugar may be fine. Especially if it is in dark chocolate!

Pill prescriptions are not the best way to deal with depression.

The Best Way To Deal With Depression

Depression affects 40% of people at least part of each year, and some individuals are depressed many years of their lives. This is most common in children who are not nurtured adequately or are abused. 

Unfortunately, many individuals believe the only way to deal with depression is to take medication. Antidepressant drugs are among the worst drugs in the world!!! 

The best way to deal with depression is NEVER antidepressants! They significantly increase the risk of suicide! 

In fact, there are four major scientific articles that report that the PharmacoMafia PREVENTS PUBLICATION of negative research studies on antidepressants! If all the negative results had been ALLOWED to be published, the net result would be ZERO. 

Nutritionally, for adults, 7000 mg of L-tryptophan, with 50 mg of B complex and 15 to 20 mg of lithium orotate taken in the morning will strikingly and safely relieve depression 75 to 80% of the time. No drug can do this! 

Incidentally, you would have to eat 84 ounces of turkey to get that amount of tryptophan! When I reported the use of tryptophan at a major medical conference in the ’70s, NATIONAL ENQUIRER featured it. Next day the country was sold out of tryptophan! 

The best way to relieve depression includes the use of the Liss Cranial Electrical Stimulator for one hour every morning. Totally safe, better than all drugs and all psychotherapy, it applies only one or two milliamps of current at 15, 500 and 15,000 cycles per second.

You will apply the stimulator to each temple, or front of head to back of head at upper neck. You must complete your work with the stimulator must by noon. The stimulator is now sold as Fisher-Wallace, which, unfortunately, has put it out with automatic shut off at 20 minutes, so turn it on 3 times!

You have to turn it on three times to get the best results. The only contraindication is a pacemaker. It works well in 80% of people with depression. And you just put it on and go about your normal activities while wearing it.

The best way to deal with depression includes the use of the Shealy-Sorin Gamma PEMF® an hour or two daily, preferably used on top of the head. It puts the brain into gamma frequency, the “in the zone” state of mind found in long-standing intense meditators.

It is important to note that gamma brain activity is missing in virtually every known disease! Thus, the Shealy-Sorin Gamma PEMF has great benefit as an adjunct in all illnesses, including depression, Alzheimer’s, and Parkinsonism, as well as hypertension and diabetes.

All individuals benefit from self-regulation, using our mental retraining program Biogenics®. There are 60 different mental exercises for a wide variety of physical, mental, emotional and spiritual regulation. Some examples are Autogenic Training, and Essay on Prayer.

Other good Biogenics® titles to explore, when you are dealing with depression, include Relaxation and Healing, Basic, Internal and Spiritual Will, Age Regression, Rainbow Energy Balancing, Self-Actualization, Self-Image, Wise Person Attunement, Balancing Emotions, balancing Self-Esteem, Coping with Fear, Anger and Depression, and Who Am I.

The following Biogenics® titles all have biochemical, physical, mental, emotional and spiritual benefit:

  • Way of the Sea
  • Retraining the Nervous System
  • Ideal Weight Balance
  • Freedom from Smoking
  • Stress and Distress
  • Sacred healing
  • Health Focus
  • Rings of Fire Air, Water, Earth, and Crystal

For many people, the best way to deal with depression includes past life therapy.

In all major illnesses, unfinished anger, guilt, anxiety, or depression may be related to a painful death in a previous life. Often a single hour session of past life therapy can serve for healing life-long depression.

For more complex situations, which often include pain, anxiety and depression for many decades, an intensive one or two week, forty- to eighty-hour intensive holistic therapy program is the major necessity. This has been a hallmark of our work at Shealy-Sorin Wellness Institute since our origin in 1971.

For the most complex situations, including cancer, IV vitamin C, ozone and the one- or two-week intensive program can be life-enhancing. The first miracle I saw was the complete cure of a 50-year-old woman with widespread metastatic cancer. On the 17th day of therapy, she suddenly got rid of her pain and cancer!

In acute illness, conventional medicine using drugs or surgery can be life-saving. But when symptoms persist for months or years, comprehensive holistic medicine including nutrition, electrical devices, and retraining the nervous system are the best possible therapy.
