that supporting the immune system helps heal inflammation and autoimmune dis- eases. Instead, these are commonly treated with immune system suppressants that leave the patient with diminished resis- tance to other diseases. Raw foods, especially pineapple and pa-


paya, are good sources of digestive enzymes. Tey’re also available as supplements. Prebiotics and probiotics: Prebi-


otics, plant fibers that ferment in the colon helping to increase desirable bacteria in the gut, and probiotics, live beneficial bacteria, help restore balance in the microbiome, effectively feeding and strengthening the immune system. Myers suggests that declining levels of friendly bacteria in the gut may actually mark the onset of chronic degenerative disease. Vitamin D: Several studies, including


one from Israel, have shown that people with the highest vitamin D levels have the lowest number of upper respiratory infec- tions. “To ensure optimal vitamin D status, many health advocates, myself included, are recently advocating daily dosages of 2,000 to 5,000 international units (IU), even in apparently healthy adults,” Murray says. Beta glucan: Beta glucans are poly-


saccharides; soluble fiber naturally occur- ring in the cell walls of grains, bacteria, yeast, algae and fungi. Natural sources include oats, barley, seaweed, and shitake and reishi mushrooms. In supplements, look for products extracted by fermentation if grain or yeast is a concern. Tese sugars are known to help prevent and shorten durations of colds and flu and provide relief for allergies and sinus congestion, and may help regulate an overactive immune response in cases of autoimmune disorders. Both internal and external factors can


affect us all the way to the cellular level. Chopra says, “You are talking to your genes all the time, and what you say affects every cell in your body. Trough lifestyle choices, you can make healing decisions rather than damaging ones.” Kathleen Barnes is the author of numer-


ous natural health books includingTe Cal- cium Lie: What Your Doctor Still Doesn’t Know, with Dr. Robert Tompson. Connect at KathleenBarnes.com.


T


he effectiveness and safety of flu shots has long been questioned. At best,


the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reckons that the flu vaccine is 60 percent effective and less so for those older than 65. Plus, it admits it will have zero effect if scientists wrongly project which strains will be prevalent in the coming year. Having a strong immune system is the best bet to prevent flu, says Sayer Ji, founder of GreenMedInfo.com. Further protection can be found in


vitamin D, says Naturopathic Doctor Michael T. Murray. He notes, “It may prove to be more effective and less costly than conventional flu shots.” If a cold or flu strikes, Murray


suggests zinc lozenges. For coughs, German research from the Department of Integrative Gastroenterology at the Kliniken Essen-Mitte shows that a South African medicinal plant, Pelargoniium


Flu Shot or Not


sidoides, commonly known as Umckloab (an ingredient in Umcka ColdCare) is especially effective in treating coughs caused by colds, bronchitis and sinusitis.
