Maintaining a Healthy Immune System

I am not a doctor. I do not hold a medical license. Some of my clients call me doctor, but I repeat, I am not a doctor. By trade I am a personal trainer. I hold several certifications and I’m self-employed doing business under the name Infinite Fitness. The business was created to promote longevity and quality of life (disease prevention). Fitness is our platform, saving lives is  our mission. I would like to share what has been beneficial to me and my clients.


I would love to say that I never get sick. That would be a lie. Truth is I rarely get sick. When I do it’s normally short lived with mild symptoms. Most of my illnesses are self-inflicted. I say self-inflicted because I can normally trace my illness to the activities in my lifestyle. Leaving the house fresh out the shower with open pores. Going all day without drinking enough water. Eating too many unhealthy foods in a given day. Too much fun on the weekends. Not enough rest. Not taking my vitamins consistently. STRESS! All of these factors contribute to the weakening of my immune system. I know when my immune system is not functioning properly. Typically I experience an abnormal buildup of mucus (mornings). My energy levels aren’t consistent. My digestive system becomes irregular. I become very irritable and impatient. If I act quickly history has shown me that this illness will be short lived.  With the pandemic wreaking havoc on our world, I would like to share with you some really simple things you can do to keep your immune system strong and ultimately reduce the chances of any illness taking full control of you. Or even worse taking you completely out of the game. If you begin to feel Ill, I suggest you start this protocol immediately and seek medical attention:  


1. Read and pray for healing

  • Psalm 107:19-20

  • Proverbs 4:20-22


2. Do not stop eating

  • Feed the immune system so it can fight the illness

  • Continue with eating regular meals

  • Fruits, Vegetables, Protein drinks (home made)

  • No Fatty Foods (Meats and Dairy)

  • No Sugar (Alcohol, Candy, Concentrated Juices)

  • With each meal (Fruit, Vegetables, and Smoothies) you should feel slightly better


3. Drink as much water as possible (Varies for each individual)

  • Flush the illness from your system (Alkaline water)

  • I typically drink 1 gallon of water in 2 hours, 2 gallons total throughout the day.

  • Fresh juice from fruits and vegetables are acceptable.

  • Your hydration will be key to your healing.


4. Take your herbs, vitamins, and minerals consistently

  • Vitamins C and E primarily 

  • There are other herbs, vitamins, and minerals that will help also.

  • 1.5 oz (3 tablespoons) of apple cider vinegar daily will also help flush out the illness. You can do a tablespoon before breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

  • Probiotics on an empty stomach 30 min before breakfast will help rid the body of harmful bacteria.

  • Eventually with each bowel movement you will pass more of the illness.


5. Keep moving

  • Do not spend the entire day sitting or lying down.

  • Go outside, the sun will help you breathe and release some of the mucus that is building up in your system.

  • A slow stroll around the park, neighborhood, or parking lot at lunch will enhance your self healing protocol. 

  • I do not recommend lifting weights or doing any type of resistance training. 

  • Save your immune system for fighting the illness, not muscle recovery. 


6. Sleep

  • Do your best to get at least 8 hours of uninterrupted sleep every night.

  • Every hour you are asleep your body advances through different stages of recovery and healing.

  • It’s important to sleep long enough to reach the deep sleep and REM phases.

  • The longer you sleep uninterrupted the more your body will heal.
