Immune boosting 101

After fairly extensive research on the subject, I am satisfied I have a well researched and effective list of ways to boost the immune system.
  • The most power is by the far the Beck protocol.  Using lower amperage (50-100uA) to safely and effectively destroy pathogens in the blood seems to really unburden the immune system allowing it to operate at maximum efficiency.
  • Reishi mushroom is an incredibly power immune booster.  Readily available in capsule for, I prefer NOW brand.  Quite affordable, and similar effects are found in the Mitake and Shitake form, which are extremely delicious and easy to find for cooking.
  • Niacinamide, the biologically active form of Vitamin B3.  Expressing impressive antimycobacterial action, unknown to most physicians, this is the most impressive B vitamin.  It not only is antimycobacterial, it also helps to reduce immune suppression and carcinogenesis due to exposure to UV rays.  If you take Niacin, you will most likely get a flush, or sunburn type feeling throughout your body.  Some people do not like this, I however love the feeling.  It also gives your skin a glow and helps improve its appearance.
  • Potassium, without this mineral you will have great difficulty if you should ever become infected with HPV, typically a plantar wart or worse.  It seems the research is showing that a severe deficiency in Potassium inhibits ones ability to clear this virus.  This may explain why people with Crohn's disease often suffer from warts on their hands and feet.  The best source is Young fresh coconut water.  I prefer young coconuts from Thailand, they have a green outer husk.  You can buy bottled coconut water, be careful to NOT get the sugary type, stick to 100% coconut water.  It can take some time to correct mineral deficiencies, so give it a couple of months at a strong dose.  Coconut water is delicious, rich in potassium, just do not drink too much or you will be on the toilet all day.
  • Iron.  Without this mineral, you can expect massive oxidation of your cells.  That is right, being iron deficient is dangerous.  Years ago when I was sick, my blood iron levels were very low, this causes massive free radical damage due to a lack of oxygen in the blood.  The doctor noticed this and pointed it out.  Iron deficiency and the associated complications promote the growth of pathogens, especially fungus/yeast.  People with Crohn's usually have occult blood in the stool, this is easily detected in a stool/parasite test.
  • Foods to avoid:
    • Gluten - 80% of people have a severe gluten sensitivity.  Do not confuse this with Celiac disease.  Gluten isn't something humans were meant to eat, especially the mutant 'hybrid' wheat found in 99% of the world.  Crohn's patients will find tremendous relief just by cutting out this evil substance.  In my opinion this is the most important thing anyone with bowel problems can eliminate.  I will never touch gluten, if I do, immediately I become constipated and bloated.  I am 100% allergic/sensitive to this.  I highly recommend you read or listen to the work of Dr. William Davis, MD.  He has a book called Wheat Belly.
    • Dairy - Poison flat out.  This stuff clogs your lymphatic system, gives you horrible skin problems.  Cheese can cause terrible migraine headaches, I know it does for me.  Most people are allergic to casein.  I cannot overemphasize just how bad dairy is for you.  Most people with seasonal allergies find this problem goes away when they stop eating dairy.  Dairy is full of cow puss!
    • Sugar - The hardest one to give up.  I don't think it is possible to avoid it completely, but try to cut down on this one.  It promotes inflammation which is the last thing anyone with an inflammatory condition wants.
  • Minerals, our soils are depleted.  The soil is nothing but a sponge we pour chemicals on.  Most people are deficient in just about every mineral due to these horribly short sighted agricultural practices.  You must watch Dr. Joel Wallach's lectures on this subject.  Zinc, Selenium, Chromium, Vanadium are all depleted in Crohn's patients.  Without these you can expect poor wound healing, diabetes and cancer.  The links to his lectures will be in the side bar to the left.
  • Olive Leaf - A fantastic immune boosting herb.
  • Oil of oregano - The most powerful of the herbs, strongly anti-viral, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal.
  • Colloidal Silver - Amazing.  Do not let the propaganda about turning blue scare you away from this powerful anti-bacterial.

  4. Hi Rebecca, Fistula is usually the result of food allergies inflaming the area, main culprit is wheat/gluten containing foods. Secondarily, it causes chronic constipation which tears up the tissue. They are difficult to heal. You must avoid all Dairy, Gluten/Wheat, and especially Sugar and coffee.
    Your body will NOT heal if you are consuming sugar, sugar puts the brakes on any sort of recovery/healing you hope to achieve.

    I used the magnetic pulser on the fistula, usually cleans them up in 1-3 days. It dries out the fistula because the magnetic pulse sterilizes the wound, it reduces inflammation, and helps to speed up healing. Wipe gently, and if it itches/burns, you ate something you are allergic to or should not be eating. Always shower and wash the area after you know what.

  5. If you have a reputable organic small diary farmer in your area who breeds Jersey grass-fed cows, raw milk is a wonderful source of vitamin B3 as well. Talk to the farmer and make sure they test their cows regularly esp. for Johne's disease. The probiotics in raw milk compete with pathogens and actually destroy them. Also, there will be no puss found in this milk because they are grass fed and will not get mastitis due to a diet of grains. This puss is where MAP usually hides.

    Thanks for the post, very helpful. I will most definitely add some of these to the Beck Protocol.
