SUPERCHARGE Your Immune System and SKIP the Antibiotics

I hope your Christmas was every bit as joyous as mine. We had a wonderful day.

But I know some folks have difficulty enjoying this time – especially with COVID, the flu, and other illnesses circling around.

If you or loved ones have started with a cough or a sniffle you might be tempted to call up your doctor and have him write a prescription. And that will most likely come in the form of an antibiotic.

Now it’s true, antibiotics are a miracle drug. They save lives every day.

But we’ve squandered that gift by prescribing them in cases where they aren’t needed. (And by allowing the factory-farm system to get away with using the drugs to fatten up livestock!)

Now we’re faced with superbugs resistant to the antibiotics that used to kill them. And what was once an easy-to-treat infection suddenly becomes a dangerous, life-threatening illness.

I’ve ALWAYS seen antibiotics as a last resort. It’s just too bad so many other doctors don’t feel the same way, and now we’re ALL paying the price.

But the truth is that antibiotics are often NOT needed with a properly supported immune system.

It’s a real punch to the gut. But we can’t afford to ignore that antibiotics are hanging on by a THREAD right now.

Nearly 3 million Americans already get antibiotic-resistant infections YEARLY. And tragically, 35,000 of those folks lose their lives.

Unless we make some drastic changes… and FAST… the death count will only go up from here.

But it’s not all bad news. Researchers have identified 459 plant products with natural anti-bacterial benefits.

These unique compounds target bacteria differently than antibiotics. And that’s exciting because it means some of them may become future lifesavers.

But there’s even better news. You don’t have to wait for the scientists to sort out those new plant anti-bacterials before you get some protection.

You can beef up your immune system NOW by giving it the tools it needs to function at the top of its game.

  • Pick potent plants – Garlic, onions, ginger, and spices such as oregano and turmeric can give your immune system the support it needs to kill invading bacteria.
  • Focus on vitamins – Vitamins D, K, C, and A have immune-supporting properties.
  • Give your gut a boost– Your immune system is closely tied to your gut. In fact, 70 to 80 percent of your immune cells are located there. So taking a daily probiotic to improve your gut health boosts your immunities too.
  • Supercharge your immune system – Certain herbs such as Goldenseal, echinacea, oregano oil, and olive leaf extract give your immune system the extra support it needs to protect your body.

The end of antibiotics may be just around the corner. NOW is the time to start supporting your immune system so you’ll have less need for them.

P.S. The clock is ticking on antibiotics. But it turns out these life-saving drugs can have a dark side too. Click here to discover how antibiotics could be behind your recent blood sugar problems.
