I hate being sick! Although, I really don’t know many people who actually enjoy it.
I just don’t have time for sickness. As as busy mother and a business owner, I have way better ways to spend my time. So I have been on a 10 year quest to figure out how to build my immune system, keep my body healthy, and STOP getting sick! Each year, I have found that I get sick less–I actually can’t remember when I was last sick!
Many of us who fall into the “get-well quick” category and want one magic pill to make it all go away. Believe me, I get the temptation. However, building the immune system to fight of infections–whether it is a sinus infection, yeast infection, or just the common cold–will work if you keep at it, but it may not always be as quick and easy as grabbing an antibiotic.
Fighting things naturally is a whole different ball game. You WILL get better and you WILL be stronger for it because the next time you encounter that sickness, your body will have built up a memory for it and will fight it off. Being willing to fight things naturally requires coming to a place where you are tired of the cycle of getting sick every year, at the same time, and with the same thing. You CAN break that cycle.
If you get sick this year, instead of running for an antibiotic, try this plan instead. You should feel much better within a few days, but stick with the whole cycle and you will be surprised that next year, you may not even get sick!
Don’t be overwhelmed by this…start off with whatever you can do. But if you are someone who has taken antibiotics frequently or has chronic or recurring sicknesses, this program can make a big difference in your health.
I would highly recommend doing the “Infection Bomb” below BEFORE you get sick this year so that you can build your immune system and prevent it all together. Don’t wait till crisis hits! Stock your cabinets and start this today!
This is called the “Infection Bomb” because your goal is to “bomb” the infection and build your immune system with as many nutrients as possible. Health is built at the cellular level by providing the cells what they need to thrive.
This is the adult version and here is the teenage, children’s, and infant version. After reviewing this method, read the article below on the alternative.
The Infection “Bomb”
Take Every 2 hours; waking hours only — i.e., about 6 times a day. Do this full “Bomb” consistently for at least 2 weeks to jump-start the process of fighting the infection.
Same supplements; Begin to do the “Bomb” every 3 hours (4-5 times a day).
Weeks 5 and following for as long as needed
Same supplements; cut back to doing the “Bomb” every 4-5 hours (about 3-4 times a day).
As I said, this plan is not for the weak-willed. You have to be determined that you want to get better. But it truly only takes a couple times doing this before your immune system gets so much stronger. The benefits are so worth the sacrifice it takes you to complete this program!
If you are someone that is looking to build your immune system but do not want to be as rigorous, the above supplements will benefit you greatly just doing them on a daily basis in smaller quantities.
Again, don’t wait till you get sick. Add these Shaklee supplements into your daily routine and prevent it!
Here is the alternative if you decide the prevention model is not for you. Read the article below by Doctors Doug Kauffman and Dave Holland, M.D. on what happens when you get into the antibiotic cycle.

“It is ironic that this humbled fungus, hailed as a benefactor of mankind, may by its very success prove to be a deciding factor in the decline of the present civilization.”
–Dr. John Pitt, The Genus Penicillium, Academic Press, 1979
“Simply put, antibiotics are poisons that are used to kill. Only licensed physicians can prescribe them. The drugs are used to kill bacteria. Certainly, many people have benefited from using them. However, if bacteria were the only organisms that antibiotics killed, much of this book would be unnecessary. In fact, I contend that poisons that kill small organisms in small doses—organism-specific varieties notwithstanding—can also kill organisms, when they are taken in big doses. You, my friend, are a big organism.
We’ve talked about the link between fungus and human disease. This chapter addresses the possibility that antibiotics may help fungi to proliferate within the human body.
As an adult human, you have three to four pounds of beneficial bacteria and yeast living within your intestines. These microbes compete for nutrients from the food you eat. Usually, the strength in numbers beneficial bacteria enjoy both keeps the ever-present yeasts in check and causes them to produce nutrients such as the B vitamins.
However, every time you swallow antibiotics, you kill the beneficial bacteria within your intestines. When you do so, you upset the delicate balance or your intestinal terrain. Yeasts grow unchecked into large colonies and take over, in a condition called dysbiosis.
Yeasts are opportunistic organisms. This means that, as the intestinal bacteria die, yeasts thrive, especially when their dietary needs are met. They can use their tendrils, or hyphae, to literally poke holes through the lining of your intestinal wall. This results in a syndrome called leaky gut. Yeasts are not the only possible cause of this syndrome. Some scientists have linked non-steroidal, anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS) such as naproxen and ibuprofen to the problem. Given their ability to alter intestinal terrain, antibiotics also likely contribute to leaky gut syndrome.
In addition to possibly causing leaky gut syndrome, I believe that parasitic yeasts can also cause you to change what you eat in that they encourage you to binge on carbohydrates including pasta, bread, sugar, potatoes, etc. So, it should come as no surprise that weight gain counts as one of the telltale signs of antibiotic damage and subsequent yeast overgrowth.
By altering the normal terrain of the intestines, antibiotics can also make food allergies more likely. An array of intestinal disorders can ensue, as well. Sadly, most doctors claim ignorance concerning their patients’ intestinal disorders rather than admit that they drugs they themselves prescribed actually caused the disorder to begin with.
Tons of antibiotics are fed to American livestock on a daily basis, purportedly to proof them against bacteria. This practice not only possibly contributes to antibiotic resistance in humans—many experts feel weight gain, and not disease prevention, it he real reason antibiotics are so widely used. Fat cattle sell more than thin cattle. That’s all very well, but imagine what the antibiotics thereby possibly present in dairy products could be doing to our children’s health…
The time span between when patients take rounds of antibiotics and when they die interest me. That’s because I believe that few people really die of heart disease and diabetes. In actuality, antibiotics are responsible for deaths attributed to these diseases, because these drugs are what caused people to develop the disease to begin with. And yet, incredibly, death certificates usually state the probable cause of death without mentioning whether the deceased had a history of taking antibiotics.
Remember, antibiotics are dangerous mycotoxins—fungal metabolites. Just as importantly, medical experts have written articles maintaining that these drugs kill people. But, other experts insist on remaining skeptical as to the problem, even though these same experts readily recognize the link between weakened immune systems and death.
According to the 2001 Allergy and Asthma Report, the first immunodeficiency syndrome was identified in 1952. This document tells us that since that time, “more than 95 immune syndromes have been identified, with new conditions coming to light every day.” The report goes on to say that research indicates that “increased antibiotic use in human infancy may be associated with increased risk of developing allergies.”
Max Planck won the 1918 Nobel Prize in Physics. He once weighed in as to why science is slow to change even in the presence of overwhelming evidence that it should do so.
“A new scientific truth does not triumph by convincing its opponents and making them see the light,” Planck said, “but rather because its opponents eventually die and a new generation grows up that is familiar with the ideas from the beginning.”
That a new generation will grow up knowing of the dangers inherent in taking antibiotics is a good thing. That doctors will continue randomly prescribing fungal toxins should teach us the importance of knowing medical facts before blindly accepting any prescription. Please study the antimicrobial benefits and the immune system stimulants that nature provides. Know also that, in some instances, antibiotics may become necessary.
If you reach a point where no alternatives exist, I recommend that you ask your doctor to prescribe nystatin simultaneously with the antibiotic (see Dr. David A. Holland’s article called Antibiotics—to take or Not to Take?). Also, keep in mind the post-antibiotic importance of restoring the intestinal terrain with plain yogurt and probiotics. If you experience bloating, belching, gas, constipation, diarrhea, GERD, or other intestinal problems probiotics can play an important role in restoring your intestinal terrain.”
