Viruses and superbugs have become a part of day-to-day living, but that doesn’t mean you have to live in fear of catching one. Your immune system, when armed with nature’s best weapons, can be a formidable rival against a wide range of viruses and bacteria, from antibiotic-resistant E. coli to Covid-19 and other new and emergent infections.
In this easy-to-follow guide, Dr. Michelle Schoffro Cook reveals the most valuable natural remedies against viruses and superbugs and how to harness their powerful healing abilities for supercharged immunity. She explains how, because of their complex chemistry and synergistic effects, many natural remedies are superior to pharmaceutical drugs, which are chemically simplistic and thus easy for viruses to outsmart. Looking at the role of the digestive system and the microbiome in a healthy immune system, she discusses probiotics and specific foods that boost immunity, as well as foods common in the modern diet that can temporarily put the immune system out of commission. She explores specific immune-boosting essential oils in depth, revealing their multilayered effectiveness in supporting health. The author examines herbs and mushrooms that strengthen the body’s defense systems and explains how many natural products and supplements need to be taken with other specific herbs, minerals, or supplements in order to reach full efficacy. For example, Vitamin D doesn’t work properly without sufficient magnesium. Dr. Cook also explores behaviors that can sabotage your efforts to rebuild your immune system as well as the best habits for maintaining super-powered immunity for life.
Detailing how to build the ultimate immune system, this practical guide reveals how you can prepare yourself as the Post-Antibiotic Age becomes a reality.
