Healthy Immune System

Foods help

By Margo Belton - April 12, 2020

 Eat Smarter- OUTWIT COVID19

  • Stay home. Save lives. Good advice to help stop coronavirus.
  • Please follow all the guidelines by the Center for Disease Control.
  • With that said, it may be time for us to look seriously at what it takes to have a healthy immune system.
 By omitting the importance of nutrition There may be a serious “knowledge vacuum”  that is possibly sending out a negative message about the importance of nutrition in disease & Illness prevention.

In allopathic medicine, effective treatment relied on considering the patient as a whole. Diet, sleep, work, and exercise were all seen as important factors that could play a role in producing - and reversing - the imbalance in humours that was believed to result in illness.
While we no longer describe our moods or functional body systems parts as humours (bile?  anyone?) We do need to remember that we are a system. Since there is no manual that comes with each person What you know about basics like food can give you an edge in a short amount of time- about 3 months.
This may be a great time to reflect on your nutritional choices. Are you truly taking in fruits vegetables and high-quality protein to rebuild your body? If you're thinking about the answer to this question chances are you are not.
This may be an opportune time to Journal what you're eating. By recording your meals, you may be able to spot the flaws in your nutritional program and make repairs that may benefit your health and boost your immune system. Hopefully, with improved nutrition, you can boost your immune system and cut down on your chances of contracting the disease and illness over time.
For many years many Americans have opted to rely on fast food. We found it fun.
 Fast food was convenient.
And let us admit it- Fast Food was a reward …. How did we get in this trap?

 THEY NEED MORE VEGETABLES IN another color
  See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/5_A_Day#United_States

Post-1960s- both men and women worked, leaving the kids at home SO mass-produced foods weak in which nutritional value saved time.  Well, guess what? COVID-19 means you have time at home to address your meals. Now with food delivery becoming more difficult. And now with  Money a little tighter …... Why pay for food that has the nutrition cooked out of It?


Why pay for taking out that relies heavily upon sugar fat and salt for taste?
 Fast food will not give you an edge with your Health especially when it is devoid of vitamins. Check out these publications Eat This Not That & Superfoods RX

We also know that fast food, and less than nutritional choices overall set you up for the two  (problems) that make it harder to survive a rigorous infection of any type. With COVID 19 having clogged arteries or a kidney system that's so stressed that you are diabetic make it quite a bit harder to fight this novel virus. So if you can make some changes to drop that A1c level or eat more fruit to keep those arteries elastic-- Good For You! You need every advantage you can get!
 
There’s currently, no vaccine to prevent coronavirus disease (COVID-19).
You can protect yourself and help prevent spreading the virus to others if you:
Do
Wash your hands regularly for 20 seconds, with soap and water or alcohol-based hand rub
Cover your nose and mouth with a disposable tissue or flexed elbow when you cough or sneeze
Avoid close contact (1 meter or 3 feet) with people who are unwell
Stay home and self-isolate from others in the household if you feel unwell
Don't
Touch your eyes, nose, or mouth if your hands are not clean

DO

Modern Problems Series

Survive plagues

By Margo Belton - March 15, 2020

      1. Problems Series asks a big Question
By Margo Belton 3/15/2020

Q:  How did they survive plagues and viruses pre-vaccine? 
A:   Adaptogens

Adaptogen is a name for herbal remedies that have been used for hundreds and sometimes thousands of years. The term adaptogen was originally coined by Russian scientist Dr. Nikolai Lazarev in 1947, during the Soviet search for natural and safe remedies to increase the resistance to biological stress.” https://www.gardeningchannel.com/ultimate-list-of-adaptogens/

In the olden days, The Black Death, also known as the Pestilence, Great Subsonic Plague, the Great Plague or the Plague was avoided by some – especially in Africa. Why? It depended on your access to medical expertise, your love of mice killing cats, and your social distance from people. Unlike the Spanish Flu or Influenza Pandemic of 1918, the Plague was a bacteria not a virus and the Plague caused estimated mortality ranging from 75 to 200 million people, peaking in Europe from 1347 to 1351.(1)

In later plagues some of the lucky ones were treated by Nostradamus- Yes that one.
Nostradamus was a self-taught pharmacist aka apothecary before he gained fame as a prophet of the future.

 He did unusual things like washing his hands often.
He treated people with tinctures of his own, which in the fortunate rallied the immune system to fight the infection. The timing was everything.  Legends say Nostradamus's wife and child died because he was not there to treat them.

What worked?
Not colloidal silver-  
CON Unless you are really skilled in distilling in administering parts per million this approach is not guaranteed to keep you well. Colloidal silver can block bacterial and possibly viral processes and slow down the rate of illness as you fight it. PRO: It has been proven that silver colloidal solutions work best OUTSIDE the human body- like Lysol – which is why the FDA is banning Alex Jones from pushing his colloidal silver products as a cure. (2)

ring around the roses
a pocket full of posies
this rhyme came from the 1347 to 1351 period when the average doctor dressed like this Note the fishing rod (wand)
 What worked?
 Not Vitamins
 CON It takes several months to build a good immune system so doubling up on vitamins without exercise/sleep/muscle recovery...Vitamins will not give you an immune system edge until your body is forced to use them. You store what you eat so unless a body part is stressed enough (exercise or injury)  Vitamins are not going to stream to it. PRO: Starting healthy habits now that you are home and have nothing else to do other than getting fitter is a good idea.

What worked?
 Zinc (3) Found in fish zinc is a metal that can be ingested daily but if you decide to up your intake Keep in mind that this Tolerable upper limit includes the zinc you get from foods and supplements. Study the chart from WebMD and consult with your doctor before adding anything because this is not a normal dose but a THERAPEUTIC DOSE.
https://www.webmd.com/vitamins-and-supplements/supplement-guide-zinc#1

CON You need to keep a zinc diary and use a website/app that lets you track how much zinc you intake each day.                                            https://careclinic.io/nutrition-log/
                                                                       
Zinc and all nutrient tracker for IOS/Android
Category
(Children & Adults)
Tolerable Upper Intake Level (UL) of Zinc
0-6 months 4 mg/day
7-12 months 5 mg/day
1-3 years 7 mg/day
4-8 years 12 mg/day
9-13 years 23 mg/day
14-18 years 34 mg/day
19 years and up 40 mg/day
                                                                       
PRO is safest to get your zinc intake by eating the fish that has already cheated and made bioavailable zinc for you in the form of food.  You can not overdose on fresh fish. You can get deliveries of fish here:  (720) 331-4525     https://www.seafood4unow.com/

What did Nostradamus use?
Herbal Teas
The Renaissance was the age of spices. No one knows for sure what spices Nostradamus used https://skeptoid.com/episodes/4066  We do know that  He used advanced antiseptics and recommended a diet low in fat with plenty of good exercises.
What is “ true about Nostradamus is that he was a noted and reputable plague doctor, although he admitted regretfully that he never found any cures or preventive measures that worked. “

 In Modern times, one thing we know is that spices do not kill bacterial but they do boost your own immune system to attack infections. Even When a Vaccine Becomes Available Your Immune System Must RALLY In Order For The Vaccine To Work. How your immune system rallies depend on the level of germ/virus that your immune system detects.  And most importantly how much time has been spent boosting the system. So you need to have a non-lazy, nay, Awake immune system in the first place, along with several months headstart.

With that caveat in mind “….Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food” - (Hippocrates)

 Tea – a liquid distillation of some food ingredients

CON
You can be allergic to some teas. Echinacea which is often slurped in tea form can be deadly to children and adults with allergies to flowering plant pollen especially mums, daisies marigolds and ragweed.

PRO Does echinacea work in helping the immune system?

Yes!! In conjunction with Elderberry  and in the absence of symptoms non-allergic types can start now    just watch the caffeine  (which is in a lot of cold medicines!!)
 https://www.webmd.com/vitamins/ai/ingredientmono-981/echinacea

As for you allergic types -How to proceed? Avoid kitchen sink teas which put 7 or 8 ingredients together in unknown amounts. It is smarter to use simpler mixes by buying your own spices and adding them to some inert tea like black or green tea.
Here is a list of spices that were available to Nostradamus @ 1521

Pepper, Cinnamon, Cloves, Nutmeg, Ginger, Saffron, Cardamom, Coriander, Cumin, Turmeric, Mace, Anise, Caraway and Mustard

Most of the spices on this list act as adaptogens- they tease the immune system to do some pushups.  Western medicine until recently did not emphasize adaptogens.
PRO
Turmeric and mustard reduce inflammatory states which result when the immune system keeps producing in the area of injury. Sometimes this is detectable as swelling or soreness. Not all inflammation is bad unless it lasts too long.

https://www.webmd.com/vitamins/index  is an online supplement checker that allows for research into interactions because some of these spices interfere with medications you may already take. So much of the adaptogen function is based on healthy people not taking any medications.

CON
Ginger and Anise are known to interfere with  SOME heart medications so it is always good to know exactly how all your meds work. The following link explains the info sheet you get with your meds in plain English. It also lets you look up all the spices listed here; Pepper, Cinnamon, Cloves, Nutmeg, Ginger, Saffron, Cardamom, Coriander, Cumin, Turmeric, Mace, Anise, Caraway, and Mustard
 https://www.webmd.com/vitamins/index
 
The Chinese Medical Tradition differs from the Western so much that the two different approaches are often considered oppositional.  The Eastern or osteopathic and the Western or allopathic approaches are not diametrically opposed. In the late 20th century the two practices started to merge in Cancer treatment.

Adaptogens grew in popularity as cancer patients wished to alter their recovery pain and grew when ex cancer survivors realized they could re-configure their immune systems on a basic level, over time.

A popular anti-cancer  adaptogen is Oscilliumum
https://www.webmd.com/vitamins/ai/ingredientmono-1080/oscillococcinum

Oscillococcinum is a brand name homeopathic product manufactured by Boiron Laboratories. Which means you can buy it on Amazon. How good is it?

PRO
There is no reliable evidence that taking Oscillococcinum can prevent the flu. However, in people with flu symptoms, there is some evidence that Oscillococcinum might help people get over the flu faster, but only by 6 or 7 hours. (4)
CON
Some side effects but no idea if the side effects are from allergic reactions
https://www.webmd.com/vitamins/ai/ingredientmono-1080/oscillococcinum

In conclusion
If you have no underlying conditions
Bad habits make it more difficult for you to have a virus-fighting immune system
I m going to an expert- ex cancer patients know they have to revise their habits in order to be 5 or 10 years cancer-free. The approach works against viruses also.  Quoting Andrea Leonard who owns CETI (5)

Conclusion 1
If you drink alcohol, drink only in moderation – excess alcohol consumption can lead to cirrhosis of the liver, an increase in body fat and certain types of cancer. Alcohol affects the way health gut microbes interact with the immune system. Alcohol also disrupts the gut barrier, allowing more bacteria to pass into the blood. … Excessive drinking reduces the number and function of three important kinds of cells in your immune system–macrophages, T and C cells.

Conclusion 2
Try to minimize stress – when we’re stressed, the immune system’s ability to fight off antigens is reduced. That is why we are more susceptible to infections during stressful times. The stress hormone corticosteroid can suppress the effectiveness of the immune system.
(e.g. lowers the number of lymphocytes).

You want to give the immune system all the help it can get. Eat fish. Get some sleep.
And
Try to help out your neighbor

5 THINGS YOU CAN DO TO BOOST YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM  RIGHT NOW

BOOST YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM

By Margo Belton - March 10, 2020

5 THINGS YOU CAN DO TO BOOST YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM  RIGHT NOW

Ok. Now that we have your attention it is really easy these 5 things
1. Eat Better

2. Get some sleep

3. Drink More Water

4. Wash your Hands

5. Get your flu shot if you have not done it already



Eat Better
  • Flash-frozen & cryovac-packed at sea Salmon fillets canned Salmon or frozentuna fish or whole tuna
  • how about sardines? 

 Here is the deal- canned is available but if you are relying on the Superstore warehouse – expect it to be out of stock at times. It is better to get real saltwater fish from the ocean, filleted and ready to cook.  The nutrient value of fresh wild-caught fish, especially fish that swim in freezing cold water gives you an advantage. There is no way to eat enough vitamins in the next two weeks. However, if you eat like an Athlete, organic and wild-caught fish – what is already in your bloodstream gets boosted in 1- 2 weeks.

You arrive at the big superstore and all they have left is sardines- Do Not Fret. These tinier oily fish are what the bigger athletic cold-water fish feed upon. You will have to adjust to the Mediterranean flavor of sardines- but they will boost you as if you were a salmon on the prowl. Try to get them in oil, but packed in Spicy Mustard or Hot Sauce is still okay. One less ingredient to need if you decide to be a gourmand and make a dish cooked with sardines as an accompaniment.

 Get some sleep
 Take a nap if you can or go to bed ½ hour earlier- that is better. Do not feel bad about not falling asleep right away -just resting in bed will let your immune system reorganize itself.

Drink More Water
Try one of those apps that base your intake on your weight and or activity level. Dry office environments tend to irritate nasal passages and a better-hydrated office worker has a nasal passage that is not only less irritated but hydrated. A hydrated body is less prone to infection.  How much water you need in a 24-hour period is based on approximately 1 ounce per lb. Do not worry you will not possibly intake 192 ounces in 24 hours even if you drank 8 ounces every hour- SO listen to your body and do every other hour. 96 ounces will suffice for most American office workers – you just need the app to develop a hydration habit.
Wash your Hands
Singing Happy Birthday without the how old are you chorus is @15- 16 seconds. If you do the chorus of How old are you without singing the answer its 38-39 seconds. The CDC wants 20 seconds. So what to do? I use soap for the happy birthday part and then use hand sanitizer for 5 seconds singing
And
 
Many

More
https://www.cdc.gov/handwashing/when-how-handwashing.html
What is the takeaway? You do not have to go through the whole Happy Birthday Song. Get your 20 seconds with the 1st verse of Happy Birthday and let the hand sanitizer dry on your Hands As you sing And Many More. Wiping off the sanitizer defeats the purpose."


 Get your Flu shot if you have not done so already

 Get your Flu shot if you have not done so already. The regular flu season is not over. It takes approximately 2 weeks for the annual flu shot to immunize. The whole idea is to not have a bad flu episode – the vaccine tends to mitigate the severity. For those worried about the effectiveness of this year's flu shot -  and wish to get another one – One per year is enough. Why? See the link here.
 https://www.health.com/condition/cold-flu-sinus/should-i-get-a-second-flu-shot


If we are lucky this whole thing will die down once summer starts in June. Just keep up the good work. It could be a COVID and Flu ganging upon us like tag-team wrestlers by Thanksgiving 2020. You want to have a really good immune system for that because a specific COVID -19 vaccine requires work – may be available by Mid 2021.

Who Knew How Easy It Is?

Simple and Fast and Healthy!

Margo Belton - March 10, 2020

Who Knew How Easy It Is??

Simple and Fast and Healthy!  Cool Looking One Dish Dinner using Cod
and other white fish.

All you need is a sauce of cream, mustard, lemon and pepper spice or even Mrs. Dash Lemon pepper spices.  How?

 Heat your frying pan add a tablespoon of lemon pepper spice and let it slightly brown in the pan in a tablespoon of olive oil.  If you want real noninflammatory results to add a ½ teaspoon of turmeric. Garlic powder is optional (1 teaspoon) Notice we left out the salt so this is hypertensive friendly.  Stir often while browning.  Do Not Let It Burn!! Remove pan from the stove.

The cream can be non-dairy: I use Alfredo sauce from Ragu.© Pour enough to make a marinade for your fish.  If you used Turmeric in the browning phase Skip Adding a tablespoon of mustard.  Stir and then put fillets in this sauce and cover at room temperature Bake at 400  in a deep glass pan or skillet for 10-12 minutes or until flaky and done.

Serve over greens like arugula or place over rice
