Hi

To get straight to the point, I am looking for help to boost my immune system as well as help heal ulcers and help with digestion. I have had a few bad years, health wise and am quite frankly getting sick of modern medicine. Any recommendations would be appreciated!

Re: Recommendations

When it comes to boosting the immune system, there are so many variables. Everything we do in life, our entire lifestyle, has an effect on our immune system.

* Be sure to get enough sleep, rest and relaxation.

* Eat a clean diet free from high calorie processed foods.

* Avoid stress as much as possible.

* Get at least some moderate exercise like walking.

* Getting enough fiber in your diet is essential to feed the beneficial bacteria in your digestive system. You should try to get at least 25 grams of fiber per day from fresh fruit, vegetables, legumes, whole grains, nuts and seeds. The microflora in your digestive system is a major part of your immune system. It is also referred to as "Microbiota", a community of microorganisms. More fiber in your diet will support a bigger and better community of beneficial microorganisms. And this will be helpful in boosting your immune system.

Items like probiotics, yogurt, or kefir may also be helpful in this endeavor to supply some beneficial bacteria.

Re: Recommendations

Hi, thank you for your advice. I appreciate it. Yes, negative for H.Pylori. The Doctor believes it was from my use of Excedrin, even though it wasn't used that often. But, I stopped taking it at all and do feel better, plus I take nexium and carafate. I go for a follow up egd in September and hopefully the ulcers are better.
