To rejuvenate your immune system start with the basics
Living with Viruses- Part 3
The CDC and the World Health Association are keeping a close watch on monkeypox. As of June 16, 2022, there are 100 Confirmed cases in the United States. This virus is similar to smallpox, which was originally found in cows, at that time it was known as cowpox. There is no need to be alarmed the vaccination for smallpox is also used for monkeypox. The transmission of viruses from animals to humans has been well been established. Along with flulike symptoms a rash is developed on the skin which soon turns to pustules. Within these pustules contains the virus therefore, close contact with an infected person is necessary for transmission. This is not an airborne disease as is all the variances of COVID.
Different virus strains will emerge, and we must take individual action to “regenerate “our immune system.
The western diet has large nutritional gaps because of the abundance of poor nutritional quality. This is very apparent in “take out foods.” It seems to me that there is a substantial portion of our society that no longer cooks food at home. When you order food from a local restaurant, the quality of the food and nutrients will not sustain a healthy immune system.
Healthy whole foods can be just the medicine the body needs to improve your immune system and to reverse many diseases. Nutrigenomics is a new science that studies the impact of food choices on genetic expression. The key is trying to choose nutrient-rich foods that sends the right healthy signals to our bodies for positive genetic expression and optimal health.
The food plan I recommend is called the Core Food Plan. It takes elements from the Mediterranean diet, the Hunter-gather approach sometimes referred to as the Paleo diet, focusing on low glycemic carbohydrates. This food plan can easily change to suit personal preferences and health needs. It is available in vegetarian and vegan versions and can accommodate foods from virtually any culture.
The features of the Core Food Plan will help you meet daily needs for the macronutrients: proteins, fats, and carbohydrates. It supplies all the necessary minerals, vitamins, and phytonutrients, along with adequate fiber and fluids. The focus is on whole foods, eating clean-organic, adequate quality protein, balanced quality fats, high fiber, low simple sugars, and phytonutrient diversity.
It is impossible to explain this food plan in detail in a short email. I would encourage you to contact me through my email and I will send you, at no charge, all the information for this food plan. It will include a comprehensive guide, a weekly guide, and a simple chart for the food plan.
