Sign up now for Betty Rawker and Dr Amanda to teach you how to have a Paleo Thanksgiving!  November 3rd noon to 2. Location TBA

Immune Boosters are whats in Season! Mushrooms, roots, and orange produce is what your body needs for Fall protection.

Nature is truly amazing! The innate wisdom cannot be denied when we look deeper into Fall foods and their immune support nutrients.
Pumpkins for example…bright orange full of Vitamin A right? Right! Guess what vitamin A in high levels is great for???? any guesses….?   Virus’! Yep those pesky viruses that take advantage of our weakness at the turn of the seasons.   Don’t take high levels if you could be pregnant for it’s not good for fetus’ or babies.
Mushrooms  you hear of exotic muschrooms healing cancer, autoimmune disorders, and our own turkey tail for hepatitis! Our own local ones are just as much of a super food with immune support and naturally occurring Vitamin D!  Science is still revealing the awesomeness of these unique medical foods.  Interesting how Chantrelles and my favorite Lobster mushrooms are bright orange!!
Rose Hips  also ready for the picking now!  Rose hips is the source for many Vitamin C supplements and of course fresh is going to be much more potent.  Wildcraft some to dry for tea all through the winter, add to your favorite drink.  Betty Rawker juices them with her apples.  Dried will make a nice fruit leather.Ginger, Garlic Onions and Root vegetables are all important to keep up with right now for sure.  Roast in oven then puree with almonds or almond milk to create a creamy root veggie soup or sauce. Sinus issues?  Horseradish is a great one for the head colds….Sushi hear I come!
Grapes  Yummy these highly antioxidant infused gems are good to the last seed.  Proanthrocyans are the purple colored antioxidant that Resveratrol’s phenol is a member of.  Antioxidants refuel each other and help to fight not only invaders including fungal but free radical damage!  Also huge for keeping those telomeres long and extending your life span!!   Grapes make resveratrol to combat the fungus Botrytis!  So cool for us wine lovers eh?
Many times in our busy, exhausting world food unfortunately isn’t enough for many.  I look at;

  • General Immune assessment…..when was the last time you mounted a fever??  If you haven’t  this is a sign your not reving up your immune system like it’s meant to.  long term suboptimal immune support can lead to cancer or autoimmune disease.
  • Your GastroIntestinal health and flora balance are intertwined with your lymphatics to charge or drain your immune system.
  • Your age and thymus strength…reducing as we age.
  • Adrenal, Thyroid, and hormone levels if low will prevent you from getting over a cold quick
  • Vitamin D levels
  • are all cofactors, enzymes and transporters on board and working properly to optimal immune support?
  • .Zinc…OMG I have a fast quick test to check your zinc levels and you may be suprised
  • Too much zinc will rob you copper so check in with a Pro on this.

Want to stay out of bed this winter and keep your systems checked for preventing much worse?
