What is a topic

on the Immune System

doing on a Food

Storage Preparedness website?



The whole concept of "storing" food is to stay alive during a time of crisis where the availability of food may be an issue.

Keeping our body at its utmost potential of "health" during such a crisis (or hey - just everyday life) depends on the condition of our very own Immune System, thus --

-- knowing how to build and boost our Immune System is the pre-cursor to EVERYTHING ELSE!


Staying ON TOP of it....

Staying on top of our HEALTH, that is!


"You can trace every sickness, every disease, and every ailment to a mineral deficiency." - Dr. Linus Pauling, a two-time Nobel Prize winner.


Pay particular attention to "Himalayan Salt" subtopic and "Vitamins in Food", well actually all of this main topic with its subtopics! Our KEYS for staying right on top of things!!

Also see recommendations for CHILDREN under "Vitamins found in Foods" subtopic.



Keeping bacterial and viral infections away from ourselves and our loved ones I'm guessing is something we would love to do!

PREVENTION is always the best defense - so BUILDING a strong Immune System is the best way to counter any viral or bacterial infections from invading our body. Boosting the Immune System is also one of the best ways to prevent cancer!

(and by the way, just be aware -- if you are reading on line about a product, herb, essential oil, etc., be mindful of what website you are reading. It if is in anyway associated with a pharmaceutical or FDA sponsored site, the attack of that "natural cure, herb, etc." will surely be manifested!)


This topic will cover ways to strengthen our Immune System from different areas:

*Herbal Defense:  Making a Tincture
*Essential Oils:  Travel helps; Children and EO's; and The Antibiotic Oregano
*Vitamins found in Foods:  Foods that feed (and facilitate a strong Immune); Himalayan Salt
*COLDS in a Nutshell


The very START on this road of being and staying


is simple enough:

*Water - Our mucous membranes and the immune cells in their secretion defend against cold viruses. They can't work as well if we're dehydrated. Dehydrated cells are easier to be attacked by viruses and bacteria.
Divide your body weight by 3. That's how many ounces of fluid we need daily.

*Adequate and quality rest

*Exercise (even walking for 30 minutes, 5 days a week) -
Exercise boosts the blood flow so that the immune cells circulate throughout the body.

*And absolutely a CLEAN DIET, minus the occasional brownie and pizza slice - give it our 80/20 effort!
At least 80% of the time have a clean diet FREE of dyes, GMO's, chemicals, preservatives, etc.
Try and increase to 90%, etc.....our health is dependent on the nutrients we put in our body! It's up to us!



Make NO MISTAKE about it --

Processed foods, junk foods and sugar cause the body's white blood cells to lose the ability to fend off bacteria and viruses!! These white blood cells seek out and kill cancerous or other mutating cells that can harm the body.
We absolutely must have and need strong white blood cells! Eating GMO's (Genetically Modified Organisms) suppresses the immune system SO SO much! Medications also suppress the immune system.


 Clean diet = healthy cells = better chance for strong immune

= ability to fight off viral/bacterial infections!


Refer to topic "FD fruits & veggies" and to subtopic "Antioxidants" -- as they also play an immense role for optimum health!
