On March 15th we had a live course which was recorded and is now available here.

The hour and a half course was presented by Dr. Lynn Lafferty, Endowed
Professor, Pharmacist and Naturopathic Doctor, Dr. Judi Woolger, MD,
Internal Medicine and Concierge Medicine Physician and Ellen Kamhi, PhD,

We first reviewed the Important Components of the Immune System. Although
some may have felt the first part of the webinar a bit complex, we think it
is important that everyone has a basic understanding of how the immune
system works. This is important in order to comprehend the complexity of
the blood circulatory system, and how vaccines and natural immune-builders

Below are the highlights of what we discussed as well as the recording of the course.

  • Critical Components of the immune System: White Blood Cells, Red Blood Cells, Bones, Thymus, Spleen, Lymphatic system, GI health, B cells from GI and T Cells from the thymus, macrophages, and other cells.
  • Most Important Nutrients to get from foods in this pandemic are those with High Vit. D and C, Zinc and Calcium.
  • Sleep is one of the most important immune builders as it in enhances your immune cells to do their job.
  • Most Important Vitamins and Minerals for Immune system:
    a. Vitamin D (Vitamin D is a vital part of the immune system, most people who die in the hospital from infection are low in vitamin D)
    b. Zinc (Forms a protection from viruses from entering the body, but also blocks replication many different ways, powerful immune builder)
    c. Vitamin C (Fortifies the immune system, also acts as an antioxidant when the immune system is out of control as in a cytokine storm)
    d. Vitamin E (Helps build the immune system as we age, helps build T cells and immune system, it is a potent antioxidant which slows aging and helps when the immune system is out of control, and always shows up in nature with selenium)
    e. Selenium (Boosts the immune system, a powerful antioxidant and helps fight off some pathogenic infections)
    f. Calcium (The igniter of the immune system, good to take when you first feel ill).
