How to build a Titanium Immune System

Written by Dr. Jake, Contributing Writer

Over the next few months, we will be bombarded with ads all around your town, on the television and even the radio about getting your flu shot, washing your hands with antibacterial soaps and more fear mongering with huge corporations wanting to profit at your expense.

Today I want to address the Top Foundational Immune System Destroyers and how to avoid being sick and then what to do when you get sick.

Stress and F.E.A.R. (the allopathic/vitalistic response)

Not controlling your surroundings has severe consequences to your health. I want you to know that you are in control. We all have circumstances in our lives that we can choose to live in fear, pain and hurt. But you are in control of your thoughts. Don’t be afraid to do your own research and don’t live in fear when you or your child starts to run a fever, has a sniffle or a sneeze. Be thankful that you have a symptom. Symptoms are your bodies way to let you know something needs to change.

90% of people that find out that they have heart disease find out by having a heart attack. Your mindset is everything.

Rest & Recovery

Sufficient rest keeps your immune system at it’s highest levels. You get the best sleep when you have cave-like darkness in your bed room. Also try to not use any electronic devices in the bed, cell phone, ipads and even the TV, they keep you stimulated well beyond an hour after use.Research shows that 8 hours a night with a regular sleep/wake time is what is needed.

Poor Nutrition or Deficiencies(and bad fats)

Diet is so key to your health. We know that sugary foods like grains, sodas and even some fruits with high fructose levels effect your your immune system. Recently my wife and I went to a restaurant and saw a three-year old drinking a soda and we just looked at each other in disbelief. Anytime I see this kind of thing, I can guarantee you that the kid is going to the doctor every month or every other month with some type of infection or sickness.

That’s because sugars and acids increase rates and decrease your chances of being healthy. That’s just a simple truth. I have listed below some proper supplementation for a Titanium Immune System:
• B- Complex: B2, B6, B12
• Folic Acid
• Glutathione
• Selenium
• Vitamin D3
• Vitamin C
• Vitamin E

And be sure to eat breakfast to start you day off right!  

Lack of Oxygenation

Exercise is effective way to warming up your body, increasing hormonal function and regulating your immune system. I recently wrote an article on Burst/Surge training, you can read it here.

Toxicity (meds/vaccines/environmental)

The hardest thing to change is your mindset. You literally have been trained that treating a symptom is the best thing to do for your health but the truth is that if you are having a symptom, then your body is telling you that something is wrong. There is a cause to the symptom and fortunately for us, its not a lack of medication. Remember the motto. You were created wonderfully made, you were bought with a price and God doesn’t make junk.

In the Lancet Journal an article was written and the statement that rang loudest for me was this. “…The largest historical decrease in deaths caused by infectious disease was not from the modern antibiotic and vaccine era, but from the introduction of clean water and effective sewer systems.

Some other research articles are:

263 children ages 6 months to 18 years Children Who Got Flu Vaccine Had Three Times Risk Of Hospitalization For Flu! Science Daily on May 20, 2009-Mayo Clinic

“ Antibiotic therapy is not an effective treatment against ear infections and rates of recurrent ear infections are significantly higher (7-10x) in children who’ve been treated with antibiotics.” “90% of the time useless”- Journal of Family Practice, U.S. Center for Disease Control

The truth is this:

AT 103 DEGREES YOUR BODY MAKES INTERFERON, necessary for killing cancer

Dr. Tamara R. Kuittinen, Director of Medical Education at the Department of Emergency Medicine at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City states that, “These medicines can do more harm than good. The ingredients in children’s cough and cold medications do not help. They are not effective, especially the decongestant, and part of it is because children’s anatomy is different. The risk margin is high.” According to the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), over-the-counter cough and cold medications should not be given to infants and children younger than 2 years “because of the risk of life-threatening side effects.”

The AAP also points to the fact that several studies show that cold and cough products “don’t work in children younger than 6 years and can have potentially serious side effects.” Antibiotic use -associated with an increased risk of breast cancer. Authors found that the more antibiotics the women in the study had used, the higher their risk of breast cancer. -National Journal of Cancer Research6/05

Hand Washing

Regular hand washing with NON-antibacterial soap and hot water for 20 seconds is good enough.

Simple hand washing with rigorous scrubbing destroys bacteria naturally by breaking their cell membranes effectively killing them. Recently there have been several articles have linked triclosan, commonly used in antibacterial soaps to heart muscle damage. These are serious chemicals, please be careful with this stuff.

A 2004 study published in the Annals of Internal Medicine investigated household use of antibacterial products and the incidences of bugs like the common cold. The researchers found that people who used antibacterial products developed just as many colds, runny noses, sore throats, fever, and stomach bugs as did people who didn’t use them.

Harmful Nerve Interference

Every single cell, tissue and organ in your body is controlled by your nervous system. That includes your immune system. There are thousands of articles that agree, spinal misalignments cause the immune system to malfunction and decrease a regular immune system response. At our office, this is the primary focus of the practice. There is nothing more important for your health, or your child’s health than getting to a wellness based physician, specifically a Maximized Living doctor.

RESEARCH ON THE Nervous System:

If your first spinal bone is misaligned, the less energy we have for metabolism, healing and thinking -Sperry 1982 NPP

Immune System boosting effects of chiropractic care: T and B lymphocytes numbers, natural killer cell numbers, antibody levels, phagocytic activity and plasma endorphin levels are positively influenced by spinal correcting adjustments (CJA 1993)

Research shows that a loss or increase in spinal curves, increases mortality (speeds up death) and takes up to 14 years off your life J. BONE JOINT SURG. AM 1981 JUN;63(5):702-12 Weinstein Sh, Zavala DC, Ponseti IV idiopathic Scoliosis: Long-Term follow-up and prognosis in untreated patients

98.7% of children with A.D.D. have subluxated Atlas bones (Burl Pettibon, 2005)

Uncorrected cervical subluxations cause the patient to suffer from loss of balance, along with additional side effects (Cailliet and Gross, 1987)

A study, published in the Journal of the American Osteopathic Association, says that out of 1250 infants chosen at random, 211 of them suffered from nervousness, vomiting, muscular abnormalities, tremors and insomnia. 95% (200) of those children had abnormal cervical (neck) muscle strain indicating vertebral subluxation.

When the subluxation was adjusted and the muscle strain removed, an immediate calming often resulted, the children’s crying stopped, the muscles relaxed and the children fell asleep.

Action Steps for a Titanium Immune System:

  1. Immune systems should be battle tested, the more drugs you take the longer you stay sick, regardless if your symptoms go away. Dirt is dirty, not germy. Let the kids play.
  2. Nutrition is huge. Vitamin D3 and a quality multivitamin are musts.
  3. Get adjusted. The proof is in. People under corrective chiropractic care are healthier. Period.

  1. Thank you so much for this article! I plan on sharing it with a lot of my friends and family members. Its reassuring to read that the processes that seem obvious to us are supported by facts

  2. These are great tips! Thanks for the reminder! We still need to find a chiropractor here in Steamboat…after all the traveling, we’re definitely going to need one!

  3. This is good advice, but some of it is too strongly stated. As a psychologist, I want to warn you that when people see a claim they know not to be true, they tend to doubt the rest of the argument and even to do the opposite of what is advised. For example:

    Recently my wife and I went to a restaurant and saw a three-year old drinking a soda and we just looked at each other in disbelief. Anytime I see this kind of thing, I can guarantee you that the kid is going to the doctor every month or every other month with some type of infection or sickness.
    My son is 7. By the time he was 3, we had started to **occasionally** allow him to drink soda as a special treat. He also gets to have candy and other sweets high in refined sugar, once in a while, such that he probably averages 1 or 2 such food/drinks per week. If you saw us *once* in a restaurant, you might see him drinking soda or eating candy or whatever. But he has not had any infection or sickness in nearly two years. He has been sick only a few times in his life. Certainly not every other month.

    I already knew before reading your article that there is a link between excessive sugar consumption and immune system suppression, and that is one of the reasons I limit my son’s (and my own) intake of sugar. My point is that if I had *not* heard this before reading your article, I would be totally blowing it off now because you stated so strongly that you “guarantee” a child who drinks one soda will require medical care at least 6 times a year, and my family’s experience makes it obvious that this just isn’t true–so why should I believe anything you say? Do you see what I mean?

    But you do have good advice here, and over the years as I have been doing these things more consistently, I have been getting sick less often.

    • Becca, I understand your hesitation from what he said, that’s true not every child would be sick, although that is usually the case with what we see in our office. (I’ll add the word usually so that it won’t be such a generalization) My husband is passionate about what he does and sees some many things that could get better if people just learned about how the body works. That’s why he is writing a few articles each month. Thank you for commenting and stopping by! 🙂
