Cancer now a days seems to be rife and common place within our society. Here at Valia, we believe that much of the disease and ailments that live amongst us is a direct result of what we put into our bodies.
As time progresses and society develops, the foods we eat and consume seem to have become more scientific. Scientific not meaning, the revolutionary break through in health, but instead the continued and exaggerated use of more and more hard to digest additives and ingredients. We believe that it is this, as well as the exposure to harmful pollutants and chemicals, that has become the main impetus and catalyst behind why so many people now days are struggling with disease.
Your immune system is designed to recognize and destroy abnormal cells. But in many instances, especially in early stage cancers, the surface markers on cancerous cells are identical to those on normal cells, making it impossible for your immune system to recognize them as a threat.
Although boosting your immune system isn’t an actual treatment for cancer, it’s incredibly important as you fight cancer. Cancer patients are susceptible to infection from the disease, as well as from treatments that destroy white blood cells.
Infection is a huge issue to cancer patients. It is important to do things to boost the immune system and reduce the likelihood of infection.
Cancer is a nutritional/toxic/environmental/emotional condition, which, in a great number of instances, can be successfully reversed through the application of a sound nutritional approach and common-sense lifestyle changes.
Needless to say, there are a variety of supplements that have received favorable press, based on positive study results. Most, however -- and this may be key -- are found to be preventative, more so than curative in nature.
Here are supplements, vitamins, and extracts you may hear about to help boost the immune system:
The culture at Valia and the corner stone of our belief centers on Purity. We believe in pure foods. In trying to be conscious of the things we eat and put into our body. We believe diet comes first. And that the better we are in what we eat, the better we look and feel.
We also believe in supplementation. Using supplements to fill gaps and voids, and to target things about ourselves and things in life we want to change. Most of our products work together in unison to further change and to help our patients target and change specific things about their health and body that they aspire to change.
Just like a painter who uses different colors to achieve composition and new themes. Herbalists and Naturopaths use different herbs, specific minerals, and active full matrix components to achieve similar reactions. Have bloat and stomach pain? Balance, Ultra Flora and Enfusion can work to reduce the discomfort. Dry or blotchy skin? Hydrate, Bloom and Collagen can give you that illumination you are seeking.
