Strengthening the Immune System with Crystals
Most of you know us through our online store and blog site and a large number of you see us regularly at Fernvale markets (outer Brisbane area) on Sundays. In winter, setting up can be a chilly experience and maybe because of the cold often accompanied by fog and mist, we get lots of questions about dealing with colds and flu. We have also had a couple of emails asking for tips and the best crystals to ward off winter bugs. So allow us to share
My Top Tips for taking care of colds and flu
Similarly we have been asked in a more general sense about strengthening or boosting the immune system, especially as it plays such an important role in our overall health. Our thyroid gland plays an important role with our immunity, wellbeing and weight control and as if to draw attention to its role, over the last couple of markets in particular several people have enquired about crystals to assist in balancing their thyroid.
Strengthening the Immune System with Crystals
The immune system is our primary defence mechanism; it protects us from attack by external agents such as viruses, bacteria, fungi, and so on. If our immune system isn’t healthy, a simple scratch could be fatal. Our immune system is also impacted by our emotions and thoughts which may strengthen or weaken it. That’s why it’s essential to ensure that our immune system is functioning as well as possible to effectively combat aggressors. A well-balanced lifestyle, positive mental attitude, healthy diet, exercise, and the use of crystals will enable us to improve our immune response and stay healthy.
It is wise to develop a strong immune system, where good habits and prevention play a key role. In today’s developed society from the moment we’re born we are exposed to a toxic environment where pesticides, pollution, electromagnetic waves, and countless other negative influences abound and compromise our immune systems.
Following are some of the crystals that can assist and strengthen the immune system and enhance your body’s natural ability to heal itself.
