We would like to tell you about as well. So Dr Lewis. Can you help us with possibly not getting sick this season there are so many that already are and I know you know. There's a new virus coming in from China. There's so much fear happening so Can can you give us a little hope and light and some natural things that we could be doing well first of all. I don't think I will ever succumb to fear because that causes a lot of stress which. I'm sure we'll talk even more about but if you feel stressed mentally physically spiritually financially whatever you that that can make you more prone to get sick in the first place. Oh Jeez y'all chill out and have fun Yeah there's a a lot of things you can take. That's going to help your immune system. One of the things I tell people is on well. If you don't get an illness. Had you know you preventative. Well if you change the oil in your truck how do you know you stop that engine from blowing. That's just common sense you know. Give your body something to work with. Well you know Oh. People wonder do the natural products work. I'm I'm telling you by ADS from a kid on every year you could bet I was going to get some sort of bronchitis. Dr Lewis was a lot like that he always had bronchitis and We have some supplements that we actually take that starts The warning that off way before it becomes to the point that you're in the hospital for pneumonia up their natural things can prevent everything. And it's not a alternative to good medical care you know if you're in a life saving or lavender situation go to the hospital they'll save your life but there's so much you can do. Do you know she talks about bronchitis and I've always got not always many times. Have this in my throat. And I'm sure I would have gotten full blown. Bronchitis had it not it being for Janet she gives me a whole bunch of stuff to take on a typical man. I and I do take a lot amount stuff I really do and I literally would not have lived this long or been this healthy but she gives me more than I would take me from this round of illness that's come through a bit About five percents bad as I would have been say twenty thirty years ago. Yeah and you know. It's not just saying that we had actually a facebook review from one of our very loved patients. Carl he talked about coming down was on a Sunday evening. The Credit God in full blown on Monday he came into the office. He's here and look like he needed to be in bed and He asked me well. What do I take? He said I've got rid of this. I'm really getting sick. And he I stopped in you know picked everything up and I followed the directions of what I told him. And he's happy to say that as of Tuesday which is two days later later the crud had completely departed and he said I don't know of anything over the counter that works at fast and most of the time by the time you look like him. You're are not coming back for a while without around antibiotics. So you know we want help you not go through that because that is a horrible thing to be that sick. We're watching on facebook. You know people laying in bed for two and three or four days. They can't move over in the hospital for a week. Yeah and you know the bill that goes with that the stress that goes with that You don't think two thousand dollar bills going to stress. You do a while we've got one friend that's up there now with pneumonia and they and they didn't even offer her food the first day Or Water and I'm thinking wow you already sick and now you're not getting the kind of care that you should have. And that's a little food will make you sick though. That's true rude. They give you all this sugary stuff. So sugars really horrible for your White Blood Cell Count and one of the easiest ways to get sick. He's just eat a whole bunch of sugar order. And that's interesting. You say that because people don't don't correlate the carbs at all with any of that that you're actually creating because of the the immune system at like eighty percent of its in the gut and when you start eating carbohydrates than They turn to sugar. And then it brings your immune system down and then you can't fight things off and I know like last night. I had some of the little gluten free nut nut chips and way too many of them I knew idea and then in the tonight I thought Oh my gosh. I feel congested. which even though as gluten free is still pretty high carb load? which whenever like I was eating pistachios ashes before and not having any problem at all? But you change over to some sort of chip or some kind of carb like that it really does bring your immune system down and you just don't really think about those things. Well you know one of the things to think about. Is You know we all need to chill out. We need to get off of our busy world. You know all we talk about is I'm busy I'm stressed as well. Yeah the more you talk about it. The more you're GonNa get it so you have to learn to eat a little bit healthier exercise which is not my favorite great thing to do. I'm active get good sleep. Decrease your stress You have to up your vitamin D levels. And yes I know Michael in Florida said but I'm out on the beach everyday. Yeah well you're so full of toxins you really don't are. We don't really convert art sunlight vitamin D because of the plastics and pesticides etc etc.. So it's better to supplement and you've got to keep in mind folks people say well I'm supplementing yeah. Well it's not working most supplements clock your eggs. I don't work and you as interesting. New Mix mentioned vitamin D because It's actually really a big flu. Fighting Nutrient because the universal vaccine that was developed as is supposed to be helping immune cells known on his CD. Eight t cells so that people either don't get sick or they're only experienced mild flu symptoms. But did you know that vitamin D is actually actually known to have direct immune modulating effect on CD eight t cells veto estrogens from food and soy and intestinal bacteria they produce from the Diet three your gut. From from the bacteria Uh Gut bacteria can induce or repress something called The p four fifty pathway which is liberty talks vacation through metabolism of of all all kinds of things. I can't even pronounce her. I don't like the chemistry anyway but it it helps with the chemicals into cruciferous vegetables. And that's why we push them in all three Carbonell Carbonell Like cabbage cauliflower Brussel sprouts but the gut bacteria and it goes back to what Janice said eighty percent of your immune systems in your gi tract. Track so Fido estrogens and things like bioflavonoids for example. The my favorite thing is immune essentials. It has all those healthy mushrooms but it also has green tea extract very very important."
