The March Equinox is also an excellent time to fast to allow the body to remove toxins. Good foods to eat at this time are cabbage (boosts immune system), carrots (high in Beta Carotene) and Spinach (high in chlorophyll).
During these times, I take slightly more antioxidants. I usually take the mega antixoidant mix until the high solar flux has died down. I also avoid raw peanuts which is a potential aflatoxin inhibitor, as well as foods that drain Vitamin A from the body such as Psyllium Husk. I also avoid wheat and raw egg yolk during this time.
I usually take Psyllium Husk with Clay after the period has ended. Especially after exercising, and the solar flux is higher, I always increase my intake of Vitamin C and Cod Liver Oil during these times to eliminate inflammation instantly.
Another method that is starting to gain acceptance is the science of Vivaxis. It shows that an energy "imprint" is left in earth's geomagnetic energy field a few weeks up until the time you are born. By "reconnecting" your body with this "imprint" it has been shown to improve health. There are some good websites that go into more detail about using Vivaxis to heal the body.
There should be a "break" in spring where regularly taken anti-aging supplements are reduced. If you take anti-aging foods every day or every 2nd day, than just before the March Equinox, take them every 3 days or more. This creates a beneficial stress on the body's immune system. During this time increase your intake of antioxidants. As mentioned earlier, research has shown that when guinea pigs are fasted for 4 days, the concentration of tocopherol (a form of polyphenol) in the fat tissue increases. This proves that when you reduce the use of some anti-aging compounds, their levels actually "rise" for a short period in the body before decreasing. This greatly reduces the chances of these anti-aging substances "turning" or "going against" the immune system, rather than supporting it.
Vitamin D levels in the blood fall to their lowest point during flu seasons. In northern California 80% of clients tested during winter months demonstrate vitamin D deficiency or insufficiency. Unable to be protected by the body's own antibiotics (antimicrobial peptides) that this gene-expresser engineers, a person with a low vitamin D blood level is more vulnerable to contracting colds, influenza, and other respiratory infections (e.g., respiratory syncytial virus). The highest concentrations are in wild salmon, mackerel, sardines, and cod liver oil. Taking vitamin D in these doses is safe, far safer than a flu shot with all the bad chemicals it contains. Concerns about vitamin D toxicity are overblown. One can take a 10,000 IU vitamin D supplement on a daily basis without any adverse effects. In healthy persons, long-term consumption of more than 40,000 IU a day is necessary to cause an elevation in the blood calcium level (hypercalcemia), the first manifestation of vitamin D toxicity (Am J Clin Nutr 2006;84:694a¢æ¡±97).
If you Have the Flu
The flu virus coats itself in a fatty oil type material. During cooler temperatures such as fall season, this fatty acid "hardens", protecting the flu virus inside a "shell", which would normally dissolve, killing the virus in warmer temperatures. One of the most powerful ways to break down this type of fatty material is via exercise and Vitamin C, which dissolves the fatty acid membrane surrounding the flu virus. Glutamine (found in high levels in cabbage) and taking 6,000mg of Vitamin C have been shown to destroy the flu virus. Research has shown that when Chitosan is mixed with Vitamin C, fats are removed extremely quickly and easily from the body. From this we can conclude that excessive fats harbor a large part of the toxins in the body.
If you feel the flu coming on, increase your intake of Vitamin D for 3 daysA in a row. good way to do this is to load your body with white button mushrooms and soak up some sun. You can also take in Cod Liver Oil, which is high in Vitamin . After taking lots of fish oil, it is a good idea to give the body a break and than increase your intake of Vitamin E for a while to restabilize the immune system.
Just as health foods work as a preventitive for long term health, the immune system can take between 15 and 30 days to return to its peak state of health. The immune system can also be healed by faith. Faith works better when you use it, just like exercising muscles grows stronger muscles.
If you do catch the flu virus and your immune system happens to be in a weak state, when you take flu fighting foods and herbs your body will start to get "hungry". It is really craving for foods high in phytosterols, which are nutrients that rebuild and re nourish the cells, increasing the ATP burning process, which in effect provides the healing. Phytosterols, such as those found in Wheat Germ, Cumin Seed and Sesame Seeds have been found to be excellent ways to remove cravings.
Iron loss in the body occurs fastest when it is fighting an infection. This is because iron feeds viruses, both good and bad. So during this time, it is a good idea to take foods high in Vitamin C with more organic iron.
During the hours between 4 am and 8 p.m. is when the body becomes most tired
