Boost Your Immune System with Guided Visualization

For years, medical researchers have known about the powerful link between your Mind and the Immune System. An entire field of study has been created around it called Psychoneuroimmunology. It is the study of how your Mind, works through your Nervous System, to affect your Immune System.

We now know that if your Nervous System, the master controller of all of your body’s processes, is functioning at its optimum potential, then your Immune System will function at its optimum potential. This will keep you free of sickness and dis-ease. Health and wellness are the natural states of the body, so if you aren’t enjoying full, vibrant, abundant health right now, then you know something is getting in the way of your natural ability to heal yourself.

Everyday your body is exposed to millions of bacteria and viruses. They are, quite literally, everywhere! But you don’t always get sick, do you? We don’t “catch colds” from doorknobs, from not wearing a jacket out on a cold day or even from someone sneezing next to us on an elevator. Studies have proven this by showing that even when scientists directly sprayed the flu virus in the noses of group of subjects, not everyone in the group got sick!

If your immune system is working properly, it can effectively fight off anything it is exposed to. But if it is weakened by poor diet, minimal sleep, inadequate exercise and overwhelming stress, our Immune System can’t do its job well and then sickness and dis-ease take over.

Researchers now know that our bodies produce cancerous cells on average, once a year. Every year your body has cancer in it. But it’s your healthy immune system that recognizes the error and eliminates it without you even knowing it. Doesn’t it make sense then to do everything you can to help keep your Immune System working at its 100% in every moment?

The Immune Booster may used as a regular exercise to enliven and awaken your Immune System so that it is working at its optimum potential at all times. It may also be used if you find yourself expressing symptoms and want to stimulate your defense system to more effectively recognize, engage and eliminate that which is breaking your body down.

You might not feel this way now, but your body’s symptoms are actually good things. They are signs that your body is working to heal itself. A fever is produced by your body to help burn out bacteria and viruses. Mucus is produced by your body to collect killed foreign invaders. Coughing, sneezing and runny noses are your body’s ways of getting these invaders out of you. So instead of feeling like a victim of having “gotten sick”, know that your body is “expressing health”, and working to restore your health as soon as possible.

So whichever reason you may need to increase your defenses, the Immune Booster will lead you through a process that will unleash your Immune System’s tremendous power: the power within you that protects you and keeps you safe, the power within you that repairs and heals you, the power within you that restores and revitalizes you in each and every moment.
