A Natural Approach To Health
Living With Common Variable Immunodeficiency
I had a question the other day about common variable immunodeficiency.
Common variable immunodeficiency (CVID) is an immune system disorder in which you have low levels of several antibodies that help you fight infections.
CVID leaves you open to recurrent infections in your ears, sinuses and respiratory system, and increases your risk of digestive disorders, blood disorders and cancer.
Signs and symptoms of common variable immunodeficiency may appear during childhood or adolescence, though most people don’t experience them until adulthood.
The condition can be inherited, or it can be acquired during your lifetime.
Medical treatment usually consists of infusions of the antibodies you lack.
Home treatment consists of treating current infections and strengthening your immune system.
To deal with common variable immunodeficiency it’s beneficial to:
*Drink 6-8 cups of purified water daily to hydrate and flush toxins.
*Astragalus boosts your immune system and generates anticancer cells in your body. It’s also a powerful antioxidant and protects your liver from toxins. (Don’t take if you have a fever.)
*Bayberry, fenugreek, hawthorn, horehound, and red clover all enhance the immune response.
*Black radish, dandelion, and milk thistle help to cleanse your liver and your bloodstream. Your liver is the organ of detoxification and must function optimally.
*Boxthorn seed, ginseng, suma, and wisteria contain germanium, a trace element that helps immune function and has anticancer properties. (Don’t use ginseng if you have high blood pressure or are pregnant or nursing.)
*Begin a diet of fresh organic fruits and vegetables (preferably raw) plus nuts, seeds, grains, and other foods high in fiber.
*Include in your diet chlorella, garlic, and pearl barley. These foods also contain germanium. Also add kelp to your diet, in the form of giant red kelp or brown kelp.
*Consume “green drinks” daily. The best contain a wide variety of plants and are organic.
*Avoid animal products, processed foods, sugar, and soda.
*Follow a fasting program once a month to rid your body of toxins that can weaken your immune system. (Children shouldn’t fast.)
*Use spirulina, especially while fasting. Spirulina is a naturally digestible food that help protect your immune system. It supplies many nutrients needed for cleansing and healing.
*Be sure to get sufficient sleep. As much as possible, avoid stress.
*Get regular moderate exercise (but don’t overdo it). Exercise reduces stress and elevates moods, which has a positive effect on immune response.
*Don’t smoke or consume beverages containing alcohol or caffeine.
*Don’t take any recreational drugs.
*Decrease toxic exposures of all kinds.
*Have your thyroid levels checked.
*Have testing done for food allergies.
*Become educated about all possible side effects and detrimental influences of any medications or treatment procedures you’re taking or considering.
*Research and address underlying Candida issues.
*Avoid MSG and artificial sweeteners as they are neurotoxins.
*Explore dental amalgam toxicity.
