.consumption of foods high in Fructose (above 15% of the carbohydrate calories), creates health problems. The ratio of HGH to Fructose should be 2:1.
I believe the reason for this effect is because the starch in the fructose increases in the presence of sunlight and the foods that boost HGH levels "feed" this starch, boosting the immune system in return. Glucose happens to be a monosacchride that is a byproduct of photosynthesis, showing that monosacchrides can increase in the presence of sunlight. We see this effect occurring in alfalfa, which is high in starch. Experiments have revealed that an increase in sunlight before mowing alfalfa allows the alfalfa to retain more starch and sugar. When this alfalfa is fed to cattle, their milk contains more protein, their milk is a lot more healthier, and numerous other health benefits occur due to this reaction.
Another way to keep the immune system strong is to remove toxin build up by taking edible clay, insoluble fiber or by fasting, however this needs to be done in moderation, as you need to replenish your body with the fat soluble vitamins as soon as possible, because detoxing can remove these immune boosting vitamins.
Another good immune system booster is Lauric Acid. Besides coconut oil, the only other good source of lauric acid is human breast milk. Lauric acid is sometimes used in cottage cheese. Another immune system booster found in breast milk is monolaurin. In order to have it escape the dangers of digestion, it is best to take it with glycerine.
Another immune booster isA Bifidobacterium lactis (a particular strain of bifidobacteria). These help strengthen and regulate the immune system. research studyA concluded that twice daily supplementation with Bifidobacterium lactis in milkA was found in aA double-blind trial to significantly enhance various aspects of immune function in a group ofA healthy elderly people.

GLUTAMINE - Available in Beets & Raw Cabbage - Take with a small amount of Creatine and or Sesame Seeds (high in arginine) for maximum absorption.
VITAMIN /BETA CAROTENE - Available in Raw Carrots, Cumin Seed, Kale, Cabbage, Tomato Paste.
If you are a professional sports athlete, one successful method to "recharge" your body, getting it ready for the competitive event the next day is to soak in a mixture of Epsom Salts and Apple Cider Vinegar. Do this before bed, and rinse off very lightly or not at all after bathing. The next morning your body will feel "super energized".
Exercise as we all know is one of the most powerful ways to boost the immune system. If my exercise gets excessive, I take Raw Cabbage, Vitamin C and beets, which boosts the Glutamine and Antioxidant Levels and significantly aids my recovery.
The thymus gland is the most sensitive part of the body, and is directly affected by magnets. Even a small north pole magnet placed at the upper end of the breatbone will stimulate the thymus gland. You can also boost your immune system by tapping on your thymus gland, and than performing the Emotional Freedom Technique (which you can find countless websites showing how to do this). I use the following that works every time "Even though my immune system is operating at ______ %, I deeply and profoundly accept myself." It also is magnified when facing south after performing the ancient egyptian pole balancing exercise.
Research has shown that 60 to 90 minutes of moderate exercise or 30 minutes of hard exercise increases antibodies in your body up to 300%. Overly excessive exercise will deplete the antibodies, so you need to know your preferred "window" of peak performance, which your body will intuitively tell you over time.
Soluble fiber is one of the most powerful immune boosting fibers available. As published in the May 2010 issue of Brain, Behavior, and Immunity: "In the experiment, laboratory mice consumed low-fat diets that were identical except that they contained either soluble or insoluble fiber. After six weeks on the diet, the animals had distinctly different responses when the scientists induced illness by introducing a substance (lipopolysaccharide) that causes the body to mimic a bacterial infection. Two hours after the lipopolysaccharide injection, the mice fed soluble fiber were only half as sick as the other group, and they recovered 50 percent sooner. And the differences between the groups continued to be pronounced all the way out to 24 hours. In only six weeks, these animals had profound, positive changes in their immune systems." Gregory Freund, a professor at the College of Medicine and a faculty member in the College of Agriculture, Consumer and Environmental SciencesA Division of Nutritional Sciences showed that soluble fiber causes increased production of an anti-inflammatory protein called interleukin-4. It changes the personality of immune cells -- they go from being pro-inflammatory, angry cells to anti-inflammatory, healing cells that help us recover faster from infection. Good sources of soluble fiber include: oat bran, barley, nuts, seeds, lentils, citrus fruits, apples, strawberries, and carrots.
Another way to boost the immune system is via increasing the amount of singlet oxygen in the system, which in turn will boost white blood cells. Substances that help the body produce good singlet oxygen: Chlorophyll (it also helps to thicken and strengthen the walls of the cells), Neem, and Glutamine. Vitamins that boost singlet oxygen levels include beta carotene (15 or 30 mg daily), Vitamin E (15mg daily) and Vitamin C (30 mg daily), especially if Vitamin C is taken for 15 days in a row.
Garlic and zinc will boost white blood cells. good combination is garlic powder and sesame seeds. You only need a small amount of these, as excessive amounts can cause stomach irritation.
Another good way to keep bad bacteria at bay, is to eat an apple daily. This is due to the special acid in the apple that destroys bad bacteria. Another method is to take the super herbs Astragalus and Echinacea, which boosts T cells in the body. However these cannot be taken long term. Astragalus also boosts white blood cells. For Echinacea, reduce theA amount every 20 days, with a 5 to 7 day break inbetween.
Chinese medicine suggests that in spring, the chi energy "flows upwards" and during fall the chi energy flows downwards. Foods that help assist the upward flow of chi include: Sweet Potato, Potatoes, Beets, Apricots, Black Sesame Seeds, Cabbage, Carrot, Celery, Egg Yolk, Corn, Orange Peels, Honey, Kidney Beans, Licorice, Milk, Lotus Fruit, Olives, Oysters, Rice Bran, Shiitake Mushroom, Sunflower Seeds, Adzuki Beans, Taro, White Fungus, Soybeans.
Herbs that boost the immune system: Cat's Claw, tea tree oil, goldenseal, cordyceps, Lavender, schinzandra berry, St. Johns Wort, pau darco, ginseng, atractylodis, ligustrum, schinzandra, licorice, andrographis, white peony, bupleurum, chinese cucumber and rehmannia.
Medical Mushrooms that boost the immune system: Reishi and Maitake.
Chromium Piccolinate + Vitamin and C boosts the immune system.
Substances that boost the immune system:
Royal Jelly (1,000 milligrams) and Bee Propolis (80 milligrams), (or a 10 to 1 ratio)
Thymus Extra (200 milligrams)
Bovine Colostrum (10 grams)
Organic black cumin seed oil has been shown to significantly boost the immune system.
Vitamins that boost the immune system: , C, E, B6, B12, Folic Acid.
Immune Boosting Fruit Juices include: Kiwi, Cucumber, Wheatgrass, Orange, Lemon and Parsley.
Minerals that boost the immune system: zinc, iron and selenium.
Household Herbs that boost the immune system: Peppermint, sage, rosemary, chives, onions, garlic, turmeric, cilantro.
good trail mix to make that boosts the immune system is: Brazil Nuts, Goji Berries, Pine Nuts, and Blueberries.
Here is a simple immune system boosting receipie:
1 Tablespoon of blackstrap molasses (sulphur)
2 Tablespoons of Apple cider Vinegar (burns out toxins and fat, which gather in the cells)
1/8 Teaspoon of Baking Soda (makes the body more alkaline)
1 cup of distilled water. Other combinations include:
Mixing together - Shiitake Mushrooms, Cabbage, Squash, Ginger, Carrots, Onion, Oregano. Another good combination is:
Mixing together - Maitake, Wood Ear, Potatoes, Reishi, Brown rice, Oats, Quinoa, Sweet Potatoes, Cranberries, yams, carrots.
Yerba Santa, Cat's Claw, Cordyceps, Shiitake Mushroom, Pau D' Arco will also boost the immune system.
The Immune System and Seasons
I believe that the solstices affect the mental and the equinoxes affect the physical. Around the March equinox, foods that are light should be eaten, and excessively heavy proteins should be avoided. If your diet is high in carcinogens or other toxins during these periods, the weakening of the immune system will be increased. food that is light and has powerful immune system boosters is Coconut Oil.
good guide to find the best times to boost the immune system is between 2 and 4 weeks before the march equinox, look for the time the moon is at perigee, than look for a long term rise in the suns solar flux sustained for 3 or more days (or when solar flares are predicted). During this time maintain a good mental outlook and stay away from foods high in carnocigens.
