WHO'S AFRAID OF THE BIG BAD SWINE FLU?

Who's afraid of the big bad SWINE FLU?!?
Not ME!!!

By Sharon Grimes

You can't turn on the news without hearing about the possible swine flu epidemic. I am getting phone calls and e-mails from people asking what they should do to protect their family. So, let me share witth you what we are doing at our home. We are simply taking the same steps we would to avoid any type of an illness or outbreak.

I recommend a three-prong approach to protect yourself against the swine flu, or any other type of contagious illness that is passed by human contact from one person to another.

FIRST ­ take steps to boost your own immune system!

  • Drink half your body weight in ounces of pure water every day to keep your immune system strong.
  • Make sure you are eliminating after every meal so that germs do not have a place to "hibernate" in your body.
  • Get plenty of sleep at night, and be in bed before 11 PM.
  • Eat healthy foods, including lots of fresh fruits and vegetables.
  • Eat cultured dairy products such as organic yogurt and kefir to boost your immune system, as they are loaded with natural probiotics.
  • Avoid the foods that deplete your immune system,­ particularly coffee and soda, and anything containing white sugar or high fructose corn syrup. Drinking just one can of soda depletes your immune system by 90% for the next 5 hours...a great reason to give up drinking soda!
  • You can also boost your immune system with several simple supplements taken daily. The first is probiotics, such as Bifidophilus Flora Force, which stimulates the growth of beneficial microorganisms in the intestines and boosts your body's first line of immune defense. A 150-pound person should take 1-2 capsules a day (and more if they have recently taken antibiotics. I recommend Probiotic Eleven in this instance); adjust accordingly for children. The great thing about probiotics is that they have a very sweet flavor to them and the capsules can easily be opened and sprinkled in the mouth or on food, for children or other individuals who cannot swallow capsules. We also carry l.reuteri chewable probiotics for children.
  • Another fantastic immune booster that is being recommended by the CDC is Vitamin D3, which our bodies manufacture from SUNSHINE! Try to get out in the sun for at least 15 minutes a day, and be sure your arms and legs, as well as your face, are exposed for maximum Vitamin D3 production. D3 gives your immune system a tremendous boost, and greatly reduces your risks of illness. If you are not getting enough sunshine, Nature's Sunshine's affordable and effective 2000 IU natural, D3 gel cap is a great choice. I recommend a minimum of 1-3 gel caps a day to beef up your body's first line of defense.
  • Other supplement suggestions include: Immune Stimulator*, VS-C capsules, VS-C liquid, and Garlic are all excellent. *Immune Stimulator would be my personal choice here.

Your SECOND line of defense: PUT A SILVER SHIELD AROUND YOUR BODY!
What do the hospitals use to kill germs and prevent infections? Silver! I am so thankful we have silver at our disposal to both boost our own immune system, and kills germs on contact.

PROTECT YOUR FAMILY WITH SILVER!
Here are three tips for using silver to kill any and all germs!

  • Take Silver Shield liquid every day by mouth 1-2 teaspoons daily will help protect your body from unwanted guests: germs! It is completely safe to take a silver sol solution every day.
  • Apply Silver Shield gel to your hands throughout the day, particularly if you are out in public. The silver gel applied to hands (or anywhere!) kills every type of pathogen known to science for four hours, or until you wash your hands again. It is particularly important to apply this to your hands when you are in any public place ­ work, stores, or church. Keep a 1.5 ounce pocket size of gel with you wherever you go, and keep a 3 or 4 ounce tube of gel by the sink in your house so that it may be applied every time you wash your hands.
  • Apply a small amount of gel at the entrance to your nostrils with a q-tip swab. This is the spot where flu germs enter the body so be proactive and protect yourself!
  • Use a nasal spritzer bottle filled with Silver Shield, which will put liquid silver into your nasal passages and kill any germs that have entered there. Do this 1-2x/day.
  • Use a neti pot to rinse your nasal passages with a saline solution 1-2x a day. This will also do wonders to help with seasonal allergies and sinus problems! Recommended by Dr Oz, neti pots are available at most health food stores.
Your third line of defense: FEAR NOT!!
Fear has been proven to lower your body's immune responses. Wash your hands, take your silver and supplements, eat healthy foods, and trust in God, praying for His protection! God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of
power, love and a sound mind. (2 Timothy 1:7) A sound mind is key to remaining calm and focused in any time of emergency or crisis.

DON'T MISS THE FREE MAY 4 CALL WITH DR. GORDON PEDERSON ON THE TOPIC OF SILVER!
I feel quite certain he will address the swine flu issue on Monday's call, and Nature's Sunshine may offer some special savings on Silver Shield liquid and gel. Participate by online webinar or by teleconference call.


If you have any further questions, we will be happy to help you.

Naturally Yours,
Sharon Grimes, NSP manager

Stop Unfair Prosecutions: NC Health Freedom Alert

To view this email as a web page, go here.

You Can Make a Difference in North Carolina

Dear North Carolina Manager:

We recently received the following information from the Sunshine Health Freedom Foundation.  Please review this information and pass this information along to your success-line Members. As mentioned below, please support HB-842.  Thank you for your continued participation and support in the fight for legislative freedom!

Best Regards,
 
Denise B. Bird
Director - Paralegal Services
Nature's Sunshine Products, Inc.

...................

Health Freedom Action Alert:  HB-842 Is Moving!

Please attend a House Health Committee hearing on Thursday, April 30 at 12:00 noon in Room 544 of the Legislative Office Building in Raleigh. We will meet in the third floor lobby at 11:30 a.m., where we will give you a badge that shows you support HB-842. Please be prepared to stay until 1:00 p.m. (Business attire is appropriate at the State House.)

Join us early if you can. Meet at 9:30 a.m. as we plan to make personal visits to representatives and tell them about our support for Health Freedom and HB-842. Email Cookie Tillman (cookiesswc@earthlink.net) for directions.  Please allow extra time to park and walk.

HB-842 would give ALL unlicensed alternative practitioners of all modalities the legal right to practice in North Carolina. The current laws prohibit unlicensed practitioners from practicing in this state. HB-842 is a safe harbor bill, giving exemption to alternative practitioners who do no harm. Visit http://www.ncchf.org/our-bill/ to learn more.

We are counting on your help to pass the CONSUMER HEALTH FREEDOM ACT, HB-842 this year.
 
ACTION: CALL, FAX OR EMAIL to let your legislators know you support HB-842 before the hearing.

We have included a one-page letter  (PDF) to legislators in this mailing. Please make copies for your clients, customers, family and friends. Have everyone sign it and add their personal testimonies and remarks. Make copies enough for their senator, representative, the sponsors and co-sponsors, and the Health Committee. Put the names of the legislators at the top and have them ready to distribute at the State House.

Remember to include your name, address and phone number!
If you don't, they will not read it, and your efforts will be wasted!

We need your contact information to communicate with you if there is a change in time, and for future hearings. We can't always send out action alerts via this format, so please give us a way to contact you. Please call one of the following:

Thank you for your support! We'll keep you posted!

FROM OUR FESTIVAL CHAIR

Still time to Volunteer 

You will be able to select your specific Festival volunteer assignments, either after all masses this weekend outside of church, or in room 103 of the Ministry building on Wednesday or Thursday evening, April 29-30, from 6:30-8:00pm.  Volunteers are requested to sign up for at least 2 hours.  If you can provide more time, that would be terrific.  We need help everywhere at the moment.  I would particularly appreciate getting help with the set up and tear down activities from those of you who are able to lift and carry tables, chairs, set up tents, etc.  If you have any strong teenagers in your families, this work would also be ideal for them.  Again, however you can lend a hand, we are so grateful!

Dottie Hersey
