To love is a gift.

To be loved is a blessing.

To give love is an opportunity.

However, to receive love we need to be open.

True love goes beyond the surface.

It radiates at our core making us want love even more.


For some, to love is easy.

For others, it may take some work; even some spiritual growth.

Whatever the situation, it should be encouraged naturally.

As this method is more sustaining and fulfilling.

Than force feeding since the first chance they get,

They may be leaving.

You see, love is more than just words.

Love includes the touching of two souls.

It includes our thoughts of the person

And our actions towards them.

Let’s show our loved ones we love them everyday

And don’t forget to mention their names when we pray.

Health and Wellness Fridays – Strengthening the Immune System

Welcome back to Health and Wellness Fridays!  I hope that all is well.

Today I would like to talk about things we can use and do that naturally help to strengthen our immune systems.

The immune system is our bodies defence mechanism that helps fight and protect us from diseases.  The demands on our immune system are great and as such giving it an extra boost from time to time is a good way to help ensure that it can perform at its best.

Here are some things we can DO and USE to help strengthen our immune system.

  1. Eat healthy servings of fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds.
  2. Reduce alcohol consumption.
  3. Avoid tobacco smoke.
  4. Consume friendly bacteria – such as probiotics to your diet.
  5. Get enough sleep.
  6. Manage stress levels.
  7. Eat garlic – preferably uncooked
  8. Reduce sugar intake
  9. Get some sun – vitamin D
  10. Get immunized
  11. Drink more herbal teas – green tea, peppermint, elderberry and ginger.
  12. Invest in a good multivitamin supplement to support our diet.
  13. Consider introducing immune-enhancing herbs such as Echinacea, ginseng, ginger, astragalus root
  14. Get active – moderate exercise
  15. Expose ourselves a little – when we are exposed to germs our bodies learn how to fight them and how to better protect us in the future. Don’t go looking for germs but you can try using plain soap instead of antibacterial gels, soaps and lotions from time to time.

WE are our ultimately our bodies primary defence against diseases. So let’s do what we can to help our bodies better PROTECT us.
