I consider the immune system like the commandments. They are both a wall to protect you. When there is a breach in your wall, you are vulnerable.
When your immune system is compromised you risk infections, over 100 autoimmune diseases, including Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Diabetes Mellitus Type 1, and Systemic Lupus Erythematosus, inflammatory diseases, and cancer.
Few people realize the importance of their immune system. There are many ways to heal your immune system, but often with the use of antibiotics and sugar, you are left open to infections which weakens your system.
In this article, I want to share some herbs you can easily purchase, or grow, to boost your wall of protection.
Echinacea and Chaparral: Echinacea strengthens the immune system, and Chaparral is an antibiotic. Put one heaping tablespoon of Echinacea in one quart of boiling water, and boil gently for thirty minutes. Turn the flame off, and add two tablespoons of Chaparral. Let this mixture steep for twenty-five minutes. Drink one cup first thing in the morning, and finish the remainder of the quart throughout the day. This is one day’s supply. You must make the teas fresh daily; they lose potency after twenty-four hours.
Pau d’Arco, Blue Violet, and Red Clover: These herbs strengthen the immune system, and cleanse the blood. Add three tablespoons of Pau d’Arco to one quart of boiling water, and boil gently for twenty-five minutes in a non-metallic pot. Turn the flame off and add two tablespoons of Blue Violet and two tablespoons of Red Clover to the Pau d’Arco, and let the mixture steep for twenty-five minutes.
Do not use sweeteners in your teas. Though they are medicinal and may not appeal to your taste, the herbs were given to us by our Creator for healing—for the service of man (see Psalm 104:14). Drink them faithfully!
You may also use Goldenseal and Aloe Vera.
Licorice tea also boosts immunity. Glyke, a substance isolated from the herb Glycyrrhiza Uralensis, or Licorice Root, was tested on sixty patients who were HIV positive. About seventy percent of the cases improved and three cases were reported to have converted from HIV-positive to negative, two of which remained HIV-negative. The report was made by Professor Lu Weibo of the Academy of Traditional Chinese Medicine in China. Consider the herbal teas as part of your eight to ten cups of daily water intake.
