Test Your Immune IQ

Many of the systems in your body operate on innate intelligence. For example, your nervous system, immune system, and digestive system function without your direct input. That doesn’t mean that you have no influence over them—quite the opposite as you will see.

Managing Your Body Intelligently

Humans know it is as possible to heal the body as it is to harm it. But the best management lies in intelligently assisting the body to maintain optimum functionality.

In a general sense, your health and well-being are assisted by:

  • Staying well hydrated
  • Maintaining a healthy diet
  • Exercising regularly
  • Minimizing stress
  • Getting restorative sleep

Your job is to run your body well so it can do its job and keep you healthy.

Managing Your Immune System Intelligently

Understand first of all, that your immune system works to defend your health, and is activated when there is a threat. So, the next time you feel poorly, have a runny nose, or find yourself coughing, it doesn’t mean your immune system isn’t working, it means that it is! It is busy fighting an invader.

The goal of your immune system is to restore order and balance every time it goes out of kilter or comes under bacterial and viral attack.

How can you help?

Working With Your Body

Coughing loosens gunge and foreign debris in your pipes with a counterforce. Droplets carrying viruses thus expelled move at over 100 km an hour, which would get you a speeding ticket on urban roadways.

The worst thing you can do is take medications that dry up mucous. That’s like slashing the tires of a getaway vehicle, leaving the intruder in your body.

Learn to understand rather than ignore the signals your body is sending you. You will have symptoms in three major areas to alert you: 

1. Physical Symptoms
Muscular tension
Heart palpitations
Sleeping difficulties
Gastrointestinal issues
Eruptive skin disorders
   2. Psychological Symptoms
Brain fog
Mood swings
Lack of motivation
     3. Behavioural Symptoms
Time off work
Diminished creativity
Defensive responses
Poor decision making
Relationship difficulties
Poor work performance
Sense of humour failure

Ignoring, overriding, or suppressing symptoms of any category only results in further harm.

Too  Weak, Too Strong, or Just Right?

Most understand the importance of supporting a weak or compromised immune system, but can an immune system be too strong? Indeed yes!

Allergies are an indication of an overactive immune system. As a result of hyperactive immune responses, your body is unable to distinguish between healthy, normal cells and invaders. You are basically being attacked by your immune system. Autoimmune diseases exist due to immune systems that are essentially too strong.

Immunologist, Dr. Suzanne Cassel explains; 

‘You actually don't want your immune system to be stronger, you want it to be balanced. Too much of an immune response is just as bad as too little response.’

Support Your Immune System

Taking loads of lab-manufactured vitamins and whatnot will not ‘boost’ your immune system. The jury is still out on how much the body absorbs artificial supplements in the first place.

The intelligent thing to do for your immune system, besides respecting its symptomatic red alerts, is to support a healthy lifestyle focus with organic and natural supplements.

The body recognizes organic properties the same as it does in the food. Sadly it is a known fact that the food we eat today does not have the same amount of nutrition as it used to, which makes natural supplementation a necessary health practice.

Cures & Creams are very proud of the natural and organic supplements on their website, especially the unique Lithothamnium Calcerium form the North Atlantic Sea that supplies bioavailable minerals and over 72 trace elements besides.

This super-absorbable plant-based product is found in most of the supplements in the online store. It's efficacy will amaze you.

Whatever you do, deal intelligently with your body, never ignore its efforts to keep you healthy and support it sensibly with organic, and natural supplements.
