Health & immunity

The immune system helps to protect us from harmful bacteria, viruses and fungi. It also helps to repair damaged tissue. Poor diet, alcohol, caffeine and cigarettes can all add up and decrease the effectiveness of the immune system. Once your immune system has been compromised your body cannot properly defend or repair itself, becoming prone to fatigue, illness and infections. The immune system defence cells are mainly produced by the spleen and thyroid helping to create a barrier against illness and infections called free radicals. Free radicals are produced in high numbers when the body is exposed to poor nutrition. Some vitamins and minerals can help to protect the body against free radicals.

What can you do
A balanced diet high in vitamins and minerals go a long way to build a strong immune system. Deep breathing goes a long way to help strengthen the immune system by supplying oxygen to the cells. Regular exercise also plays a big part to help strengthen the cardiovascular system and immune system.

Quick tips
1) fresh air, proper nutrition, clean water and moderate exercise with plenty of sleep all help keep a strong immune system.
2) A healthy lymphatic system is key to a strong immune system.
3) lymphatic system is made up of cervical lymph nodes, lymph vessels, axillary lymph nodes, thymus gland, mammary lymph nodes and the spleen.

The recipe calls for 99% isopropyl alcohol (rubbing alcohol) or ethanol (grain alcohol, most commonly available at 90%-95%). Please don't use any other types of alcohol (e.g., methanol, butanol), as they are toxic. Also, if you use a product that contains a lower percentage of alcohol (e.g., 70% alcohol) then you need to increase the amount of alcohol in the recipe or it won't be an effective disinfectant.
