How To Boost Your Immune System
This is a topic and question on everyone’s mind right now on a global scale, how can I boost my immunity? I know for me when this global pandemic started my first thoughts went to how am I going to keep my girls safe, especially my eldest who is immunocompromised.
We went through all the normal steps that were being recommended by medical experts, social distancing, personal hygiene, hand sanitizer and vitamin supplements.
As an energy healer I was very aware that there was more too it, there were other things that had the capacity to be lowering our immunity.
According to the Centre for Disease Control (CDC) there is and emotional component in 85% of all illnesses.
Stress and anxiety can have a huge impact on your physical health, especially chronic levels and during this time there is unprecedented levels of stress in people on a global scale.
To add to that is not only your own stress and anxiety, but what you as an Empath are feeling from not only those in your physical presence but the overwhelming vibration of our planet right now.
You may look at your own circumstances and feel you know what it’s okay, I am doing fine, yet still experiencing a low grade anxiety. The issue I have noticed with that is, when it is your own stress and anxiety you can use your coping tools but when its coming from something you know nothing about, now that is challenging.
Just the awareness of the vibration that the planet is operating at right now can be a huge help to you, knowing that you may feel a low grade anxiety that is not yours helps you to cope.
Connecting in with your cosmic team and always asking the question “is this mine?” If not ask them to release it from your auric field. Due to the high levels of anxiety right now, it is important to add this to your tool box and use it regularly.
Lets look at how stress effects your immune system:
“Since emotions run every system in the body, don’t underestimate their power to treat and heal” – Dr Candace Pert
What we think and what we tell ourselves can either support or undermine our health. Because the immune system is so sensitive to thoughts, emotions, and subtle energies, energy healing can be an extremely useful tool in supporting wellness, fighting illness and speeding healing.
According to Neuroscientist Dr Joe Dispenza – You can read full article here
“As people begin to overcome emotional states that keep them connected to past experiences—as they break out of redundant habits and automatic programs, as well as change certain self-destructive attitudes and beliefs—aspects of their immune system up-regulate genes. This means that their thoughts and feelings are signaling cells within the body’s internal defense system to turn on healthy genes to make better proteins—otherwise known as healthy anti-bodies—as well as a host of other beneficial chemicals to balance and regulate the body. This process in turn reduces inflammation, suppresses tumors, mobilizes enzymes, and so on.
So the next time you sit down to create a better life, a healthier body, or a new experience, just remember that your brain and body have never been separate and the bridge between them is your immune system. You see, your body has always been spying on your brain. So why not use your nervous system—the greatest pharmacist ever—to activate your body’s internal army to create order for you every day? You don’t even need a prescription.”
Understanding the effect of stress on your physical body is the first step but as we all know stress is a constant in all of our lives. So the important thing is to learn how to navigate it in your life, finding, understanding and implementing coping tools that help to reduce your stress levels.
EFT has been shown through scientific studies to have a great effect both on lowering stress levels but also the physical effects of stress on the body, including the immune system. The following physical improvements have been recorded:
- Lowers your blood pressure
- Boosts your immune system
- Reduces inflammation
- Lowers your level of stress hormones
- Boosts your metabolism
- Counters aging
- Improves your resting heart rate
- Helps your cells fight cancer
- Counters insulin resistance
- Improves your neural signaling
- Counters autoimmune disease
- Strengthens your cell membranes
- Reduces oxidative stress
EFT Tapping has been scientifically proven to rewire the brain to bring both the body and mind back into balance!
“The most revealing studies of the physiological aspects of EFT have examined its epigenetic effects. A population of veterans with PTSD received 10 EFT sessions.45 It found regulation of 6 genes associated with inflammation and immunity. A pilot study comparing an hour-long EFT session with placebo in 4 nonclinical participants found differential expression in 72 genes.46 These included genes associated with the suppression of cancer tumors, protection against ultraviolet radiation, regulation of type 2 diabetes insulin resistance, immunity from opportunistic infections, antiviral activity, synaptic connectivity between neurons, synthesis of both red and white blood cells, enhancement of male fertility, building white matter in the brain, metabolic regulation, neural plasticity, reinforcement of cell membranes, and the reduction of oxidative stress. The broad function of this suite of genes is similar to that found in Church et al,10 confirming the association of EFT with the downregulation of inflammation and stress markers and the upregulation of immune markers.” You can read the full scientific study here
Whilst seeing the scientific studies is needed and fantastic to see, I have found both my own personal experience and those of my clients is the most powerful. Just a short three years ago I was very unwell physically after many years of chronic stress levels due to my daughters seizures.
Through the use of EFT to navigate my stress levels, I was able to not only cope with what I needed to deal with I was able to heal events, memories and words of my past that were having a large impact on my body.
I went from getting sick all the time, a new cold or infection every week to feeling well and not catching any colds or infections. I was amazed to see the difference in how I was feeling just by healing emotionally.
