Tuning Up Your Immune System 

In the upcoming presentation Dr Jaffe will review the fundamentals of the immune system including the in-built defense and repair mechanisms of the body when healthy. The immune system naturally defends and repairs but when there is an immune burden, defense takes a back seat – “repair deficit” or inflammation ensues, and sets the stage for chronic infection and/or autoimmune, chronic degenerative illness. Dr Jaffe will shed light on the role of delayed allergies and the gut microbiome in this connection and will lay out a proactive plan to tune the immune system. With adequate personalized intake of protective antioxidants and nutrients, guided lifestyle modifications and actions that target improved acid alkaline balance, Dr Jaffe explains how the innate immune system can flourish restore repair, providing relief from “repair deficit”.

Joy In Living: The Alkaline Way

This guide provides everything you need to know to support your body’s own immune defense and repair, as well as your optimal digestive, detox and neurohormonal functions.

What you will learn:

Follow the Alkaline Way
Health is a matter of balance. Our bodies need to balance acid and alkaline properties in our cells: more acid cells leads to loss of cell resilience and increased illness. The Alkaline Way helps you choose foods and activities that will tip the scale toward a healthier and
more alkaline state.

Substitute for Reactive Foods
Learn about hidden allergies and how a simple blood test, called the hsLRA (high-sensitivity lymphocyte response assay), can identify items that are burdening your immune system and blocking your path to optimal health.

Master the Seven Key Principles
There are seven fundamental principles behind the Alkaline Way. In addition to eating predominantly alkaline-forming foods, the Alkaline Way helps you choose high-quality, nutrient-dense foods that don’t provoke an immune reaction in your body.

Balance your Mind-Body Connection
Inertia, tension and stress are just a few of the sources of additional acid residue that deplete our bodies of essential nutrients. Try stress-busting lifestyle practices to steady the mind and fuel positive, peace-restoring, vitality-promoting results.

Recipes and Menus
Enjoy a wide selection of delicious, alkaline recipes for healthier breakfasts, lunches, dinners and snacks. Recipes include how to make ghee, nut milks and healthier smoothies.

Detox and Cleanse
Detoxification is a natural process to eliminate toxins from our bodies, but the toxic burden of modern life makes it critical that we actively support this process. Use the simple but powerful Alkaline Way tools to help you effectively rid your body of toxic baggage.

Supplement your Meals Effectively
In addition to eating an immune-tolerant, alkaline-forming diet there are critical nutrients that only supplements can provide. Learn which five supplements provide a strong foundation for acid-alkaline balance.

Start Out Right
A simple and inexpensive morning pH test can reveal a lot about your acid-alkaline balance and your mineral reserves. The Alkaline Way explains how to do this simple test at home to learn this critical information.
