“No Shots” 6-Step Immune Optimizer Plan

    6 Step Immune System Optimizer Plan

I got an interesting email from my sister last night about a relatively new allergy  treatment (below) got me thinking about some awesome natural strategies that you can do to optimize your immune system for the "Cold, Flu, and Allergy Season" that lies ahead.

If you start these now and you'll be ahead of the game and reduce the worry and frustration of having sickness run through your family this fall.
Here's Susan's email and my response…
Steve- Have you heard of anyone ever using sublingual immunotherapy to treat allergies? I have a friend who has done research on it for her boys who have allergies to wheat, dairy, and others, and she wanted me to ask you if you are familiar with it or have any comments towards its use. -Susan
Hey Susan,
I don't have any direct experience since it's not considered "natural"  but after some research it seems like a better option than traveling to the eent's office for shots all the time.
BUT it's still an "outside in" fix.
The BEST "inside out" fix to build your buffer against
allergies and any other immune system imbalances is:
1. Balancing omega 6 to omega 3 ratio (fish oil supps, and no grain…soak/sprout your nuts seeds to increase omega 3 content)
2. Lots of green and other colorful vegetables (green smoothies and more salads are a great starting point)
3. No wheat, dairy, sugar, or any factory farm animal products (wheat and dairy are the most common food allergens that increase your immune system load, sugar depresses immune activity, and factory farm animal products are fed grain and create massive inflammation, not to mention the concentrated dose of hormones and antibiotics.
4. A quality probiotic supplement (careful here…these are good bugs and must be alive to do any good.  Lots are dead on arrival to the store shelf and do you no good. call company  to make sure the strain has been tested for acid and bile tolerance and cell adherence.  we use ultra flora plus from Metagenics )
5. Bodywork to reduce the "high tone" physical stress and spinal congestion ,especially in the neck and upper back (recently just this alone reduced allergy symptoms in one of my clients to virtually nothing in just a few weeks)
6. Make use of the HUGE body of knowledge that proves that your immune system is a direct reflection of your "state of mind"    (psychoneuroimmunology).  Quieting the "worried ego mind" and replacing it with feeling gratitude in the present moment is a surefire prescription for improved immune system function.
I go much deeper into all of this with the "Immune Optimizer Plan".  This audio program is now available for purchase online along with notes, diet guide, diagrams, etc.
Please pass this on.  You don't have to live with allergies or be a slave to shots, nose drops, and anti-biotics your whole life.
Just what's in this email should take care of a good 75% or more of all allergies plus it will provide you with a "natural flu shot" on the side!
But it has to actually be IMPLEMENTED!  (and there enlies the rub)
Dr. Steve 

P.S.  I also LOVE the XCLEAR natural nasal spray.  It's basically a saline wash spiked with xylitol which acts like a "detergent" in your sinuses…the allergens, and pathogens just slide off the slippery surface so they can't take hold and throw your immune system out of balance.  GREAT for your "natural medicine cabinet"

The Proven 4-Step Process To Cleanse and Detoxify Your Gut

If you've ever had a "gut feeling" or "had your stomach all tied up in knots", you know how the gut can respond to your thoughts.  But did you know that it goes the other way as well? 
If you've got a toxic gut (and you don't have to have "gut symptoms" to have a toxic gut) it can cause depression, anxiety, chronic inflammation, and lots more!

On the following video screencast I've "leaked" the powerful process I've used with my clients for years to clean up the gut with amazing results.  On the video you'll learn:

1. How to kill off the bad bacteria, yeast, and parasites that are poisoning your body

2. Which foods to eliminate to heal your gut.

3. How to "rebuild" and "rejuvenate" your gut lining to protect you against acid reflux and more!

4. Which crucial nutrient your gut needs to be able to absorb more beneficial nutrients while keeping foreign invaders out!


Products mentioned in video are available at the Metagenics online store.

Here's the link to the "Modified Elimination Diet" I've used for years with amazing success.  And yes…you CAN do it!  Just try it for 30 days and report back to me with an email as to how it went…I think you'll be pleasantly surprised! 

You can download it HERE!

CAUTION!!!   ALWAYS make sure your bowels are moving AT LEAST once a day during your 4R program prevent toxic overload! (Focus on the fiber, water, and nutrients described in video)


Think good thoughts, eat good food, and KEEP MOVING!
