It’s NOT “Normal” to be Sick All the Time

“I’m fine.”
“Nothing’s that wrong with me.”
“It’s normal.”

Look around you, at how many people are chalking odd symptoms up to “just getting older”.

Look at how many kids are on prescriptions (7 out of 10 kids–did you know?).

Look at how many people can’t lift heavy things, can’t walk around the block, can’t cope with the necessary physical effort that’s required to do life. (Myself included with some of these – but I’m working on it!)

We’re not fine–it’s NOT normal to be sick or weak and just resign ourselves to it. We deserve health!

15 Ways to Support Your Immune System, with Dr. Marissa Heisel & Krystal Trammell

The original version of this article was published in March 2020 on Dr. Marissa’s excellent site, TransformationalEssentials.com. I have since edited this article several times as new research has been brought to light. 


15 Ways to Support Your Immune System (Naturally!)

The tail-end of Winter often feels like a final sprint of fortitude for our immune systems, and this is especially true given the widespread worry about a major global health concern right now.

From “normal” colds and flu to a novel virus this year, our greatest weapon against illness is our own complex and wonderful immune system.

Our best efforts, therefore, are spent to protect and support your immune system, which is our body’s natural way of keeping ourselves healthy and strong.

It’s also worth noting that Dr. Joe Dispenza’s research clearly shows that being in a state of fear or worry can and does have a measurable adverse effect on our DNA by suppressing our body’s immune response.

So how do we balance reasonable caution, mindful prevention, and the very best hygiene practices that we can?

It’s time to get into ACTION to help yourself more confidently navigate the current state of global health affairs. The main goal is to optimize and support your immune system during this challenging season.

We are actively practicing each of these tips in our homes, with our families:

1  Wash your hands properly

This means for 20 seconds, vigorously, front and back, with soap and water. You can try reciting a poem, chant, or prayer to make sure you’re washing for the recommended amount of time. Singing the ABCs, or even the chorus of Rick Astley’s “Never Gonna Give You Up” also fits the 20-second time frame. 🙂

Change your hand towels daily (or use disposables), and avoid hand dryers when in public restrooms. Studies show that hot-air hand dryers are not as sanitary as we may think!
