Invisible Source Of Imbalance That Greatly Impacts Immunity

There’s no denying the fact that protection from germs is top of mind for all of us. 
But there’s another invisible source of imbalance that greatly impacts immunity and overall health (and it isn’t mentioned nearly as much). 

Many are reaching out to Bernadette Judge (Nurse B), RN, operations manager of San Diego’s Nupeutics Naturals a resource for insights on natural and integrative medicine istalking about inflammation!  Her advice below is so crucial!


This internal swelling is a natural physical response that helps us fight foreign invaders like germs and bacteria. It can also signal the body to repair damaged tissue after injury. But sometimes, inflammation can be ongoing (or chronic), occurring in response to the foods we eat, the chemicals in our body products, or pollutants in the air. It can trick the body into staying in a reparative state indefinitely when there is nothing to repair or fight off. 


If that happens, the immune system can go into overdrive, attacking healthy tissue and cells. This intense, continuous inflammation has been linked to several diseases and symptoms, including thyroid dysfunction and certain types of cancer.
The good news is, there are lots of things we can do to help treat inflammation at its source and restore internal balance.
We know that poor nutrition and gut health, high levels of stress, environmental toxins, and chronic infection all affect the body’s inflammatory response. As a result, we can narrow down six key ways to help keep inflammation in check, all naturally:

  • Load up on antioxidant-rich foods like berries, green leafy vegetables, and fatty fish to help alkalize (or balance) the body and reduce inflammation. 
  • Limit dietary and environmental toxins as much as possible. Choose organic, grass-fed meats free of pesticides, hormones, and antibiotics. Try to avoid refined carbs, sugar, and fatty fried foods, which feed inflammation. Look for naturally-derived hygiene products crafted without endocrine (hormone) disruptors or volatile chemicals.
  • Practice good gut health by taking a quality probiotic supplement and cleansing when necessary to help detoxify your fragile microbiome. 
  • Manage stress levels with daily meditation, talking about worries and anxieties with a trusted friend or family member, or keeping a journal
  • Get regular exercise. Taking a walk for just 20 minutes each day can make a huge difference!
  • Get targeted support from a high-quality nutritional supplement like our herbal Inflammation Master. Featuring naturally-derived Piper Nigrum (from the black pepper family) and Yellow Turmeric, this holistic blend combines some of nature’s most potent inflammation-fighting elements to help you feel and perform at your best. 

Meditation For Essential Workers

As the COVID-19 Cases Explode, Essential Workers Use the Power of the Mind to Destress from Anxiety.

Therapist, coach and consultant Keith Allen West launched a free, downloadable 30-minute guided meditation for all Essential Workers needing self-care in this time of extreme stress. It can be downloaded from his website Clear Light Therapy

“Fears about COVID-19 can take an emotional toll, especially if you’re an Essential Worker. But you’re not powerless. Listening to a hypnosis-based meditation before bed every night can help you get through,” said West.

It’s a frightening time. We’re in the midst of a worldwide pandemic, with cities and even entire countries shutting down. Some of us are in areas that have already been deeply affected by coronavirus or seeing a new wave of infections. Others are bracing for what may come. And all of us are watching the headlines and wondering, “What is going to happen next?”

Using guided meditation, we can get the mind out of exhausting stress induced “fight or flight” from our old reptilian brain and into a place of self-love and self-care.

In addition to his acting career, Keith Allen West is an accomplished therapist, marketing expert, journalist, motivational coach and leader in the climate crisis. West is becoming an expert in Rapid Transformational Therapy® (RTT) with training from Marisa Peer. RTT is in essence a super hybrid therapy combining hypnotherapy, psychotherapy, neuroscience linguistic programming and cognitive behavioral therapy which allows you to very rapidly identify deeply embedded blocks and beliefs that stand in the way of living a healthy and vibrant life. He is the creator of a full line of products focused on “Do What You Love.”

According to world-famous therapist Peer, “Self-hypnosis is where you induce a deep sense of relaxation in your mind and body. This allows your mind to be open and receptive to the positive suggestions you wish to give it. The most effective way to do this is through a self-hypnosis audio. Hypnosis can have powerful, lifelong, and positive effects on the mind.”

Once certified as a Rapid Transformational Therapist®,  West will focus on freeing highly-motivated people from bad habits, pain, creative blocks and negative self-image to live their most loving, highly successful and enjoyable lives.

“I know the meditations I listen to help my anxious mind get grounded and allow me to get some much-needed sleep before I face the next day’s stress, ..we have to talk about stress and the toll it takes on us. Mental Health is often overlooked.”
