Your Food, Your Medicine: Immune Efficiency (2009)

Episode 12

If you catch lots of colds and flu – or, indeed, if you have kids in school and they’re getting everything that’s going around – your immune system is probably suffering. In this episode, we’ll look at bolstering with immune system, with an emphasis on very specific foods.

The foundation of good health is based almost entirely on the integrity of the digestive system. To that end, energy should be directed toward cultivating the energy of the spleen.

Set of Four Medicinal Dishes to Support Immune Efficiency: Wakame Onion Miso Soup; Brown Rice and Millet with Pumpkin; Red Beans and Swede in Herb Sauce; Green Beans with Walnut Dressing.
