Increase Efficiency Immune System with Elderberry

Flu season: no other virus has a season named after it. It’s a massive health concern potentially affecting millions of people per year. Studies show that elderberry has long had a negative effect on the flu virus. Elderberry contains a phytochemical that inhibits the virus before and after a person is infected.

Elderberry Effects

Specifically, the elderberry phytochemical blocks the virus from attaching to and entering a host cell. This is important because once the virus enters the body via the host cell, it will infect other cells. The infected cells then break causing more cells to be taken over by the virus. This happens in the lining of your nose, throat, and lungs. Additionally, the infection spreads to the blood stream causing muscles to ache.

Structure and Immune System

In addition to homeopathic remedies, structural correction can also help boost immune support. It is important to have any obstructions removed from the nervous system for our cells to communicate properly. A shift of spinal segments cause a disruption of communication between cells. When cells communicate properly, our entire body including the immune system functions better.
