Preparing for a seasonal Change "Cold, Flu & Hay fever"

Preparing your immune system for a season change.
"Cold, Flu & Hay fever"

The Immune System -- An Overview: 

The immune system is composed of many interdependent cell types that collectively protect the body from bacterial, parasitic, fungal, viral infections and from the growth of tumor cells. Many of these cell types have specialized functions. The cells of the immune system can engulf bacteria, kill parasites or tumor cells, or kill viral-infected cells. Often, these cells depend on the T helper subset for activation signals in the form of secretions formally known as cytokines, lymphokines, or more specifically interleukins. The purpose of this article is to review the organs, cell types and interactions between cells of the immune system as a commentary on their importance and interdependence on the T helper subset. Such an understanding may help comprehend the root of immune deficiencies, and perceive potential avenues that the immune system can be modulated in the case of specific diseases.

Cold and Flu (influenza) dwells within the  body in the form of bacterias' and during a season change it becomes a shock thus, lowering the threshold of the immune system. 
So What do we do?

Maintain healthy main systems; Respiratory, Circulatory, Central Nervous System) This can also be achieved by maintaining a healthy immune system. some herbal supplements are great for this: Echinacea, Echinacea & Goldenseal combination Elderberry, Garlic, Ginger,Astragalus Root, Slippery Elm Bark. 

Slippery Elm Bark??? Why this you may say... Slippery Elm Bark will provide nutrition to vital organs and tissue to all the Main Systems as well as the rest of the Bodys Organs. 

Garlic at a dosage of 2000 mg. daily per Adult will help as well, This antiviral herb will aid in depressing & eliminating most bacteria's like Echinacea. 

Bee Pollen:  be pollen is the only truest way for someone to get a full spectrum of "B" vitamins. without any synthetic compounding from within its own molecular spectrum. In Simple terms this mean the B array is true and both independent and collective in the molecular structuring of the B pollen. there is no derivative that creates a "synthetic" to create anew array of B vitamin. If so as the Molecular structure synthesizes it looses its structuring of it origination therefore the B1 is of a new and independent compound and molecular structure which also works collectively. So it can create a NEW SPectrum(thus a new array) Molecular structure.

Overall this Targets the Central Nervous System thus specifically The GABA receptors thus enhancing the immune system. In addition ( because the Gaba receptor attain a Healthy functionality from the B vitamin spectrum targeting B6, B12, niacin, a nature for of Heathy energy becomes relevant. 

Hay fever Hay fever symptoms are similar to the symptoms of Anaphylactic shock shock, This is because histamines are released into the blood and what occurs is vascular dilation. now that the vascular system is dilated there is more of a demand for blood circulation to maintain the volume of blood needed to maintain a normal blood pressure. Initially, there is not so the effects are a deficiency to the main systems as well as the muscular skeletal system. 

When this effect the Central nervous system it weakens the immune system and distresses the neurotransmitter ACH which affects the Respiratory system. This is why you get a runny nose or congested, 
Furthermore, When histamines are initially released the anaphylactic shock like symptoms can also cause the airways( both nasal and bronchial) to retract this is known as Asthmatic Hay fever.
So what do we do
1. First we need to stop the histamines from entering the bloodstream ( this is done with a anti-histamine herb) Echinacea, Licorice, Cayenne 
2. Secondly, We then need to strengthen the immune system from the distress’ it has or is going through(as mentioned above) this can be do with Echinacea, Astragalus, Apple Cider Vinegar, or Fresh Horse Radish.
     And during the effects of the spasms from the asthma like effect “Asthmatic Hay fever” we need Cayenne Tincture this will seize the spasm instantly. A good Overall Recover Herb Formula consists of Licorice Root, Astragalus, and Marshmallow Roots Tea.

A simple But Powerful Hay fever Tonic taught to me by my grandfather:

10 ounces of Cold Filtered (preferably)

Making a Faraday Cage or Box

Building a Faraday Cage/Box

A faraday cage or box is an enclosure that will protect electronic or electronic sensitive equipment from radiation emissions otherwise known a EMP's Electro Magnetic Pulse. This is a short burst of energy which is energized by a nuclear blast or can be man made by the use of a generator that stores energy and releases short quick bursts(surges) at a sequential and at timed intervals. these Bursts of energy known as RFI or Cycles will burn out sensitive electronic components on TVs Radios Cell Phones, Car Computers and even Power Transformers rendering the device unusable almost immediately. The Faraday Cage or box as a refractor or shield thus protecting the devices within itself by creating its own isolating ground while refracting the energy by the use of a metalic outer shell. to build your own faraday cage take a metal box and insulate the interior of the box with a very thick layer of newspaper close the blow and at the closure seams tape and seal with a metalic hvac tape. For biger equiptment you can use a galvanized guarbage can and in addition to the newspaper internail lining add a foam lining insulator cut pieces from foam insulator borad you can get at home depot or loses or hardware store. Then place the lid in the can and again seal it with a metalic faced tape
