Is Our Immunity up to Par…???
What Can You Do?
Have you ever wondered how some people seem to be more vulnerable, catching every cold and flu that is going around, while a fortunate few never seem to get sick? Well, it really is quite simple… and although we need to be aware that these pandemics do in fact happen, it all comes down to the immune system. If, say the avian flu manifests itself to be a pandemic situation, this is where the battle will be fought–in the immune system!
The Immune System
Everyday we inhale thousands of different types of bacteria, virus and fungi. The job of our immune system is to protect our bodies from these infections. Our immune system protects us in three different ways: it creates a barrier that prevents bacteria and viruses from entering; if a bacteria or virus happens to get into the body, the immune system tries to detect and eliminate it before it can make itself a home and reproduce; if the virus or bacteria is able to reproduce and starts to cause problems, the immune system is in charge of eliminating it. The immune system also has several other important jobs. For example, your immune system can detect cancer in early stages and eliminate it in many cases. Components of the immune system are the thymus, spleen, lymph system, bone marrow, white blood cells, antibodies, complement system and hormones. Since our health is directly affected by our immune system, and its function is pivotal in determining our level of health, we should work on building strong immunity naturally.
Nutrition and Immunity–You Are What You Eat
Along with adequate rest, sanitary living conditions and good hygiene, a proper diet is essential to good health. An improper diet overwhelms the body and leads to sickness, so avoiding foods that are refined, chemicalized, and nutrient deficient goes a long way! Remember live foods make live people. Try eating only 20 percent cooked, and 80 percent raw, mostly alkaline foods (vegetables, fruits, nuts, seeds and berries). Raw plant foods strengthen the immune system–but because most people do not eat enough dark green leafy vegetables, we should focus on getting more greens in our diets. A convenient and powerful source is Avena’s Super Food.
But nothing crashes the immune system faster than processed sugar. After ingesting just one teaspoon of sugar (there are ten teaspoons of sugar in just one can of soda), the power of our immune system drops by 50 percent for 24 to 48 hours, weakening the bodies protection to many viruses and bacteria.
Old-Fashioned Remedies to Ease Cold & Flu Symptoms
• take hot sweat baths with Avena’s Massage Oil, recline in the bathtub, cover your body with water as warm as can be tolerated–as you become accustomed to this temperature, gradually add warmer water until you notice perspiration forming on your forehead–upon leaving the bathtub, rest in bed covered with blankets to promote further perspiration
• go to bed early and get plenty of sleep–most regeneration of cells occurs between midnight and 4 am
• for sinus congestion, apply a drop of Avena’s Massage Oil under your nose for easier breathing, OR use a nasal salt irrigation to help remove pathogens from mucous membranes–add ¼ tsp. Celtic sea salt to a cup of warm water, twice daily for two minutes each time, fill a dropper with liquid, tilt your head back and fill each nostril, then blow your nose
• for a sore throat, mix a drop or two of Avena’s Tooth Oil with water and swallow, OR gargle with one part apple cider vinegar mixed with two parts warm water–do this hourly or as needed
• body elimination is critical, continued use of Herb Cocktail is essential to keep the bowels moving
• drink plenty of fluids–avoid solid foods, especially mucus-forming foods (meat, fish, eggs, grains, and dairy products) during healing
A cold is usually an “elimination crisis” and the method your body uses to cleanse itself of wastes, toxins, and bacterial overgrowth that build up to a point where natural immunity cannot overcome them. To get over a cold, work with your body, not against it. Taking suppressants only suppresses the illness deeper into the body, and is likely to turn up later in a different and far worse form. According to Linda Paige, Ph.D., “In my experience, most drug store cold remedies halt the body’s cleansing/balancing processes, and generally make the cold last longer.”
Avena’s Powerful Tools For Immune Function
If you seem to succumb to every passing infection, you might seriously consider boosting your immune system. Fatigue, lethargy, slow wound healing, repeated infections, allergies, thrush, colds and flu are clear- cut signs that your immune system is functioning below par. Our health is in our hands, and it starts today!
Ultra Powerful Enzymes – Probiotics – Electric ‘C’…
…have an undeniable ability to provide optimal support to our immune system — and make the immune system work as it was designed to.
Why is this important?
Many doctors agree that the body’s own immune system is capable of healing just about anything — if it is not suppressed, weakened or compromised. And it is a widely accepted medical belief that when your immune system is working correctly, it is unlikely we will get cancer — or any other illness. A poor diet, improper lifestyle, substance abuse, exposure to harmful elements… all causes toxicity and inflammation in the body and over time these can shut down our immune system and cause cells to mutate or turn into cancer. If our immune system is weakened, compromised or shut down, it is no longer capable of warding off cancer cells, pathogens, viruses and disease microorganisms.
And if you’re someone who is looking for a solution for a health condition or disease you’re suffering from, what would it be worth if you could be in perfect and permanent health? What would you be willing to pay to make it virtually impossible for disease to survive in your body — and restore yourself to vibrant health and well-being?
New & Improved Products
With more research and education being done in the field of enzymes & probiotics in the last few years. It was possible for Health Canada to review their policies and create new standards and limits. We took this opportunity to reformulate our key products to exceed activity levels, diversify, clean and EMPOWER these products to new levels making them several times more powerful.
You won’t believe the difference! We were considered the best in the industry before; now we have gone above and beyond. By increasing potency in each enzyme and probiotic, we have been able to provide a stronger more impactful product. We realized there is a special need for an enzyme and probuiotic formulated and focused on the blood… cleansing and detoxifying. What many of us would define as cellular regeneration.
Cleansing out the toxins… We take in toxins in on a continual daily basis… so cleansing out those toxins is very important if we want to maintain health and eliminate dis-ease.
“With an estimated 98% of all disease originating in the colon, our best line of defense against disease is through the regular and daily elimination of harmful toxins. “
Herbal Cocktail… a specialize herbal formulation… does not force but assists the colon to do the work itself.
This synergistic detoxification product works naturally with our body to rebuild healthy eliminations. Avena’s Herb Cocktail works in 3 stages inside the bowel to promote complete restoration.
Stage 1: Forming into a gel, it absorbs undigested foods and toxins from our entire body trapping and eliminating them.
Stage 2: Herb Cocktail effectively breaks down impacted waste on intestinal walls, even mucoid plaque.
Stage 3: Using the natural pressure of the gel, it encourages and exercises peristaltic action, helping to restore the healthy movement of our intestines.
More than a cleanser, it helps improve and repair bowel function by encouraging and exercising proper peristalsis. Gentle enough for children, yet effective enough for all ages.
Enzymes and Proteolytic Probiotics Are Our Body’s Workers
Enzymes are the primary missing nutritional component in 95% of the population’s prevention and health regimens.
Enzymes EMPOWER every other nutrient, process, and activity in our body. They are absolutely crucial! Identified as “The Sparks of Life”, enzymes are one of the most important supplements for vibrant health.
These tiny miracle workers are responsible for good digestion, the unlocking of nutrients and human life itself! Our body depends on millions of enzymes; they power thousands of biochemical reactions that keep us alive, functioning and healthy.
Imagine building our dream home… we purchase concrete, the best quality lumber for framing, plumbing, electrical, etc… We deliver it to the job site with no workers and watch… as nothing happens without the workers? This is the frequent result of many nutritional programs. They deliver great vitamins, minerals, proteins and fats into their bodies; but forget about the workers.
Enzymes are the workers and the catalyst that allows the vitamins to be absorbed, the minerals to be delivered and the protein to be digested. Simply put they do the work! And probiotics support the enzymatic action.
Not all enzymes are created equal… Avena’s own specially-cultured enzymes are grown on live plants in controlled conditions, then harvested at their peak activity levels. They’re extracted via a proprietary mechanical process without the use of solvents—which is about four times the effort, but the end result is a pure product: an enzyme of superior quality and bio-availability!
(Proteolytic – The breakdown of proteins into smaller polypeptides or amino acids and the breakdown of tumorial protein tissue)
There is incredible power in the word Proteolytic. We introduced one of the first patented proteolytic strains 20 years ago, with outstanding results. We have done it again! We now have this amazing new formula that contains 3 Proteolytic strains and 2 other powerful strains. This 5 Strain blend is classed and licensed by Health Canada as a Probiotic. They have the strength to survive the acidity of the stomach (ph of between 2 – 12… they do no good if they die before they reach their intended destination). . And we have doubled the C.F.U. (colony forming units) per serving from 6 Billion to 12 Billion while keeping incredible stability even at warm temperatures. Plus when ingested they keep producing more C.F.U.s You would be surprised at how many other probiotics this disqualifies. (Visit the site: www.LeadingEdgeHealth.org – the difference between plant and pancreatic enzymes.)
Unlike any other probiotic you have ever tried, Avena has raised the bar to a new standard, not only is this a powerful synergistic blend of powerful strains of proven probiotics but it is one of the cleanest formula on the market, This Symbiotic blend containing Probiotics and Prebiotics together will combine to transform our intestinal tract.
Vitamin C is considered the best and most cost-effective health insurance available. The famous Dr. Linus Pauling proposed that regular intake of vitamin C is crucial to a healthy immune system.
Vitamin C helps prevent and shorten the duration of the common cold and prevents secondary viral and bacterial complications. It also protects the body from damage by free radicals. What makes our Electric ‘C’ product unique? It contains the complete vitamin C package, the one you find in nature. Electric ‘C’ is 100% complete, with dulse as its natural source of iron for greater absorption. It far excels generic ascorbic acid vitamin C products.
In fact, Electric ‘C’ is one of Avena’s most prized Electrically Available® formulations. It has naturally-occurring bioflavonoids, electrolytes, tyrosinase, zinc, potassium, K factors, P factors and J factors, making it safe and easy to use in large doses.
Electric ‘C’ is the ultimate immune system enhancer. Isolated and synthetic forms of Vitamin C reportedly absorb at the rate of 3 to 7%; more complete, buffered formulas can achieve 47 to 57% absorption rates. But presented in the proper electrical matrix, complete with the full package of nutrients that make up true vitamin C, Avena’s Electric ‘C’ delivers an astonishing 98% absorption rate, leaving its competitors in the dust.
