My name is Amanda Elise Love and  I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia 10 years ago which influenced my decision to enter the field of nutrition and now I am a Registered Holistic Nutritionist who works with those who are suffering from fibromyalgia. My mission in life is to help as many people as possible with fibromyalgia !!  God has put this on my heart because I have personally experienced this malady and don’t want you to struggle anymore. 

I hope you are drinking your favorite drink (mine is Biglow’s Green tea) and all set to learn something new!

Today’s topic is Building Up Your Immune System Before the Holiday’s ! This is Episode 32.  This is the first episode of a holiday series of 5 . 

Here is what is coming up after this episode  :

Before we get started I recommend checking out episode 3 called Your Immune health, Gut, and Fibromyalgia after this one. As it is a great episode on Immune health. This episode link will be in the show notes. http://bit.ly/2TOh1Ra

So let’s get started with today’s topic: Building Up Your Immune System Before the Holidays! 

With Fibromyalgia you might not be looking forward to the holiday as the stress of family holiday meals , holiday’s events , shopping and more stresses you out so much that you are sick constantly on the top of the fatigue , pain and not sleeping . Along with any other health issues.  

You are sad that you can’t enjoy these holidays without being sick or dealing with health issues. 

So, let’s first talk about what depletes our immune systems before we talk about building up our immune system. 

5 things that can deplete Your Immune System

Loneliness – People don’t think of this as a contributing factor but this is one of the most common. 

My thoughts on this almost everyone with fibromyalgia struggle with this . As your family and friends don’t know why you can’t do the thing you used to do !  I hope you believe that my community of fibromyalgia  would love to talk to you . This wouldn’t be a community without you all. I recommend reaching out to them . You can also send me a message or email if you need someone. Also realize just because you are lonely doesn’t mean it is the greatest thing for you to be in the fibro groups if they bring you down . That is not the answer. I want you to try a different way. Remember loneliness can deplete your immune system. 

2nd thing that depletes your Immune system is stress with the holiday’s can be a big thing which then weakens your immune system. With fibromyalgia you might feel that it’s all up to you to plan the holiday dinner ,shopping , traveling and more.  One thing I recommend doing is learning how to say no ! With Fibromyalgia you have to take care of yourself so that you don’t over exert yourself. I recommend picking your few favorite events and resting the day before. Don’t feel guilty for saying no. That creates more stress which then deplates your Immune system. 

3rd is a medication which most people don’t think about when it comes to their immune systems and making sure it stays healthy. I am not going to cover this in detail.  I just want you to think about this if you’re faced with taking a medication that can disrupt your immune system, you might want to make a different choice. 

I always recommend going the natural way. 

Insomnia- Covered in Episode 5  –http://bit.ly/2ShNe0v

Just so you know not getting enough sleep can make you more likely to catch germs and viruses.

High Blood Sugar- High blood sugar can depleate your immune system and there’s a reason behind this. When your blood sugar is high, it causes a reaction within the body. Everyone has molecules and when your body is healthy with normal blood sugar, your molecules don’t impact your immune system.

I hope you learned something new about what depletes your immune system.

Now let’s look at what we can do supplement wisely to build up your immune system. Today I will share some of my favorite products that I use to build up my immune system and I believe that it can help you. I started taking these back in June of 2020.

If you haven’t heard of the website super.com.You should check them out. The story is that Kristel made superfood blends for her boyfriend Michael after his cancer diagnosis at the age of 24. Together with nutritionists, they created superfood and plant protein mixes. 

They have several different mixes for different health needs. 

I’m only going to talk about the four that I feel are the most important for this episode. All these products you can use in water, smoothies, and recipes. They have recipes for each product on their site.  I am not going to include every detail in this episode. You can find out all the information on the site. I’m just going to include what I think is the most important.

Remember the link to the products is in the show notes and if you need me to send it to you through social media reach out. 

One last note, I want you to know that I don’t want you to take supplements at random and don’t know if it is helping or not because you are taking so many or not enough. That is one of the reasons I believe you need me. I can tell you what supplements to take and why. If the supplement is not working we would try something different. I have done the research so you don’t have to. We also deal with food choices and lifestyle changes. Don’t worry we can go as slow or as fast as you want with changes.
