The best defense mechanisms against ailments are not found in vitamins, herbs, or anything that you take. The immune system is the body’s best and natural defense system. It is not located in one specific location within your body —rather, it is made up of a network of cells, tissues, organs, and molecules working together to protect your body. Each of these elements plays a critical role in how the immune system works and its function as a whole, which is crucial to preventing infections or diseases, including cancer (InformedHealth.org). In order to keep our natural defense mechanism on high-alert, we need to ensure that our body has the right nutrients, fuel, and overall balance for it to operate at optimal levels. Sleep is also an essential component in keeping the immune system in tip-top shape.
Productivity and stimulation are at an all time high, and we recognize that it is impossible to always keep our bodies happy. There is always more we can do to stay healthy, which is why we have partnered with renowned acupuncturist and herbalist, Dr. Shen, to release from the vault, a family recipe of immunity-boosting & antiviral herbs.
Dr. Shen is one of the leading acupuncturists and herbalists in California, having consulted leading western hospitals in their holistic healing and acupuncture divisions. With over 40 years of experience in the industry, he is a thought leader in Traditional Chinese Medicine.
