Immune System Support

What does our immune system really do for us?  The excerpt below is taken from the book Handbook for Healers, The Healing Wisdom of the Seer Almine, available on our Spiritual Journeys webstore sheds some light on this amazing system.

The purpose of the immune system is to protect the body from disease using multiple defense mechanisms. Immunodeficiency is the result of a weakened immune system and causes may be genetic, acquired (HIV/ AIDS) or induced deficiency (immune suppressing medication). When the body cannot defend itself, it can lead to life-threatening disease.

An important aspect of the immune system is recognizing what is self and what is not. When this process breaks down, the immune system can attack the cells of the body, leading to diseases collectively know as autoimmune diseases; rheumatoid arthritis, lupus and multiple sclerosis fall into this group.

Foods such as garlic, onion and ginger can assist in boosting the immune system as they have antimicrobial properties and contain vitamin C and selenium.

Daily exercise rids the body of toxins, increases blood circulation and lowers stress levels. Consider yoga[1] as part of your exercise and stress management tools. Yoga has the added benefit of deep breathing that allows organs to function more efficiently and boosts immunity.

Eliminate (or limit) processed and ‘fast food’ diets, which are laden with sugar, fat and salt; avoid refined food snacks. Healthy snacks include vegetables high in beta-carotene and vitamin C, cruciferous vegetables and fruits high in anti-oxidants.

Itires, a Pekana homeopathic product, supports lymphatic fluid flow and immune system functioning. See the Pekana remedies order form on this site for details of placing an order, products can be shipped within the US by contacting our office at 877-552-5646.

Calcifications in the Body

Q. How can I rid my body of calcifications?

A. We recommend Mundipur spagyric homeopathic remedy (see our post of 3/3/13 What Are Spagyric Homeopathic Remedies), dosage is one teaspoonful, 3 times per day.  Drink plenty of water as the Mundipur is highly effective and the calcium must be flushed out of your body. You can also strengthen these systems with additional homeopathic remedies:  the liver (ApoHepat), kidneys/bladder and urological tract (Renelix) and lymph system (Itires). These can be taken together; dosage is 15 drops, 3 times a day. Always take homeopathic remedies away from food by at least one hour and use plastic spoon or dosing cup (do not use metal).

Thyroid and Auto-Immune Disorders

Q. I have been diagnosed with Basedow’s disease*, which is an auto-immune disease which attacks the thyroid, manifesting for me as a hyper-active thyroid and rather important weight loss. What does the thyroid represent?

A. The thyroid represents the will, desire or ability to move forward in life. The thyroid is stimulated by marching music for example, as used in war to urge soldiers onward. When the throat chakra and the thyroid area become over-active, it is because we are in survival mode and we are in an emergency response to life rather than being able to totally surrender to life in trust and peace –we are very hyper in trying to drive ourselves forward. The fact that auto-immune symptoms are attached to the thyroid area has to do with the fact that they are self-destructive. What we don’t realize is that only activity blocks flow in return. It is necessary for us to be active while being open to flow or alternating the time of beingness with the time of doingness. Disease will force us into beingness if this principle is not lived.

Thyroid conditions are often preceded by a toxic environment from heavy metals. You should be tested for heavy metals and you should take some steps to chelate out the heavy metals. High doses of Vitamin C (ascorbate) up to 1,000 mg, whatever the amount that the body will tolerate is recommended, but not to be taken at bedtime. Also, Pekana products that support the chelation process: Toxex, Apo-Hepat, Itires for at least 2-3 months to get rid of the metals. You can test yourself before and after treatment for heavy metals if desired.

*This disorder is known as Graves disease in the United States and Basedow’s disease in Europe.

Heavy Metals Accumulating in the Body

Facts about Heavy Metals in the Body: Almine Answers Questions Regarding Heavy Metal Toxicity

1. Aluminum:
Common sources of aluminum include aluminum cookware, especially coffee pots, some antacid formulations, and some types of cosmetics-especially deodorants. Some colloidal minerals and herbal products may also have aluminum in them. Aluminum cookware is particularly problematic if acidic foods, such as anything with a tomato base, are cooked in them.

2. Cadmium:
Cadmium toxicity symptoms affect kidney function, heart and cardiovascular tissues, bone, and will cause nervousness in the system, hypertension. Zinc and vitamin E will help to lessen toxicity, but without intervention, it could stay in the human body in excess of 20 years. Cadmium can come from plastics, and synthetic rubber, including old drums from some copy machines. Cadmium ‘Red’ is used in dental acrylics (and dentures) and could be a significant source of exposure for those making dentures or dentists making adjustments (grinding dentures in their office). Cadmium free dentures are now available. The question arises as to whether acrylics used in the mouth are preferable to mercury (amalgam fillings); the answer is a resounding yes. Mercury is the most toxic element known to man. It is inconceivable that it should be used in the mouth.

3. Lead:
Lead is primarily ingested through contaminated food or water, or by children eating substances containing lead, such as lead paint. The degree of absorption of oral lead depends upon the stomach contents (empty stomachs increase uptake), and upon the body’s mineral status. Deficiency of zinc, calcium or iron may increase lead uptake. It is also found in fuels and some Ayurvedic herbs.

4. Mercury:
Mercury is an immuno-suppressive. Early signs of excessive mercury include decreased senses of touch, hearing, vision, and taste, metallic taste in the mouth, fatigue, or lack of physical endurance, and increased salivation. Mercury is commonly used in dental amalgams (50% by weight). It should be clearly understood that the removal of amalgam fillings could produce more toxicity in the body than when they were actually put in the mouth. A biological (‘bio’) dentist, familiar with the removal of mercury, while treating the body to excrete the resulting increase in levels of toxicity, shouldbe used. The purification program that we have given should also precede the removal of the amalgam fillings (treatment is recommended prior to, during and after removal of fillings). See the Mercury –Fish Levels Guide here.

Prior to amalgam removal, Almine recommends:

  1. Renal (kidney) function blood test
  2. Use of the 5-month Pekana homeopathic and diet protocol. See this post for more details on this program; also our Spiritual Journeys webstore to purchase, How to Facilitate the Healing of Chronic and Systemic Disease.
