Healthy cells cannot succumb to viral attack. This is the rule. Recent events highlight the fact that we must heed the advice of our ancient Torah scholars like the Rambam (Mainomidies) who stated "ALL DISEASES THAT CAN BE TREATED THROUGH DIET SHOULD NOT BE TREATED BY ANY OTHER MEANS."
Having a strong immune system is one of the most important factors for staying healthy and preventing illness. While many people realize that junk food is unhealthy to consume, most still do not comprehend the devastating effect bad diet has on the immune system in particular. Researchers at the University of Bonn conducted a study on a group of mice to explore the immune systems response to junk food. The researchers concluded that consuming junk food long-term could severely or permanently weaken the immune system.
People who consume a diet high in sugar and low in fiber have a significant risk of damaging their immune system. Even the CDC was warning that people with diabetes or heart disease are more likely to suffer complications or even death from the coronavirus. Why? Because of a very simple rule: HIGH BLOOD SUGAR LEVELS INCREASE RISK OF INFECTION. And as explained above, people with a weak immune system are more likely to contract a virus.
One way then to strengthen the immune system is by avoiding toxic foods, changing your diet, and adopting a diet high in nutrients, antioxidants and various herbs. People who have chronic diseases such as diabetes or heart disease or who have a weak immune system should take a more aggressive approach and aside from completely changing their diet they should consider supplementing with immune boosting herbs and supplements.
How To Strengthen the Immune System In 8 Steps:
1) DIET CHANGE: Toxic food feeds illness. Maimonidies states that most illnesses which afflict a man are caused by harmful foods or by overeating (Hilchot Deot Chapter 4). So in these times we should AVOID MEAT CHICKEN FISH DAIRY COFFEE SMOKING ALCOHOL & JUNK FOOD. Meat and chicken are very hard for the body to digest, excess animal proteins clog our arteries and require too much energy & enzymes to break down. Contrary to popular belief, FISH IN NOT A HEALTH FOOD. In fact, nowadays fish contain such high levels of mercury and pesticides (whether wild or farmed) as to make it the most unhealthy food to eat in 2020.
Also remove processed foods which contain trans fats, artificial flavors, preservatives, refined flour, corn, soy etc.. We need to lighten the toxic load, so that our bodies are better equipped to handle a health challenge. Viruses & bacteria can only attack a weak or damaged cell.
2) REMOVE ALL SUGAR FROM THE DIET It's vital to understand that high blood sugar levels INCREASES RISK OF INFECTION and weakens our cells and the immune system. All processed sugars whether it's white sugar, brown sugar, beet sugar, cane sugar, rice syrup, agave, corn syrup, etc...... will directly feed pathogens and create acidity in the body. So if you haven't already removed sugar from your diet, now is definitely the time to do so. Sugar fuels bacteria and viral growth! Most artificial sweeteners are toxic so beware!
3) STONE GROUND BREAD
The Talmud states "V'haser Hashem mimcha kol choli" Translation: "And Hashem (G-d) will remove from you all disease" (Tractate Baba Metzia 107:2). The Talmud goes on to say that there are 83 ailments that are cured by simply eating Pat Shacharit, Morning Bread, which is (proper) bread with salt in the morning and a jug of water. According to the Talmud we should start off our day with this protocol, which will prevent and heal us from sickness. Unfortunately, most breads today are toxic. At Joseph's Organic Bakery we make bread like in ancient times. We stone grind our grains fresh daily. We use Kamut, which is low in gluten and has not been hybridized like modern wheat. Our special preparation process ensures optimal vitamin and enzyme content. Our Kamut bread helps control blood sugar levels and eases digestion. Kamut bread is a superfood that provides up to 70% of your bodies daily nutrients. To read more about the 83 benefits of Morning Bread Click here
4) Juicing & Alkalizing SUPERFOODs- I juice a mixture of orange & grapefruit for natural vitamin C every day. For cold or flu I juice 3 times a day. (fresh squeeze). Also Alkalize every day with fresh green juices. Incorporate superfoods like Kale, spinach, and swiss chard which are all high in nutrients and have immune boosting properties.
5) Trace Minerals: Trace minerals are vital for supporting a healthy immune system. An amazing antiviral mineral supplement is Available at Joseph's Organic Bakery. Please Inquire.
6) SAUERKRAUT (Probiotics)-
70% of the Immune System lies in the gut, along the gut wall where the lymph nodes are present. This means that the entire body's defense system relies upon the digestive system. A healthy digestive system is vital for immune strength & support. Click here to read more: https://www.organicbakerymiami.com/post/70-of-the-immune-system-lies-in-the-gut
Just 2 ounces of sauerkraut contains more probiotics than a full jar of probiotic capsules! Probiotics are vital for digestive & immune health. Probiotics are the beneficial bacteria present throughout the body and mostly in the gut. Probiotics keep harmful yeast, fungi and bad bacteria in check. They also help identify pathogens and microbes, alert the immune system of their presence, and order an attack. We make our sauerkraut by hand in small batches. Our sauerkraut must be refrigerated.

7) CBD OIL- CBD Oil is an anti-inflammatory. It helps strengthen the body & reduce inflammation associated with some viral infections. The highest quality Full Spectrum CBD Oil is Available at Joseph's Organic Bakery. Please Inquire.
8) Liquid Vitamin D3 & Vitamin C- In case of viral infections I take between 1,000-2000ug of Vitamin D per day in split doses. For coughs and chest pains this is especially important. For all respiratory illness, Vitamin D is a basic necessity and should be stocked by every household.
Vitamin C- Vitamin C is being used in hospitals in Shanghai China as well as in NYC to treat Coronavirus. Dr. Andrew G. Weber, a pulmonologist and critical-care specialist affiliated with two Northwell Health facilities on Long Island, said his intensive-care patients with the coronavirus immediately receive 1,500 milligrams of intravenous vitamin C.
Identical amounts of the powerful antioxidant are then re-administered three or four times a day, he said. The results were very promising. Try to source a high quality vitamin C.
Additional supplements to stock your pantry with: Silver Water, black elderberry, and non-flush niacin (vitamin B-3). Niacin has been used to treat antibiotic resistant staph infections with success.
