A few weeks ago in the Alopecia newsletter I mentioned that Immucalm is great for anyone with an autoimmune disease. A friend called me the next day asking if Immucalm would be helpful for his Fibromyalgia. I had no idea that he had Fibromyalgia and I certainly would have mentioned it to him had I known. He then said that he had been using the Immune System Formula and said that he thought they were about the same. This really rang a bell in my head wondering how many other people may be confused by these two wonderful formulas.
Immune System Formula is an immune boosting formula
Immucalm is an immune calming formula
Both of these formulas everyone should have on hand, so you have them when you need them. I take the Immune System Formula quite often during the winter months anytime I am exposed to sick people or feel something coming on. For people working or in school I would take it at least in the morning to keep my immune system high because so many people are walking around sick in the winter. For kids Western Botanicals has a syrup version called Immune Boost Syrup with cinnamon and Maple syrup that is very easy to get kids to take. We didn’t have this great formula around when my kids were young so they got Anti Plague, a big difference here in the taste! Even the pickiest of kids will easily take Immune Boost Syrup because tastes so good! So keep in mind, the Immune System Formula is to keep the immune system high to keep you healthy.
Once I understood what Immucalm was for it became a formula that I use often. It is great for those itchy allergy symptoms associated with hayfever and with hives that commonly happen with food allergies. The best thing about this formula is that it is for autoimmune disorders which involve an overactive immune system which attacks the body’s own tissues. Autoimmune diseases including rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, lupus, Sjogren’s syndrome, fibromyalgia and many more can be greatly helped with Immucalm. Diet and other supporting formulas may be needed depending on the disease. My friend started taking Immucalm that very day and the next day he was amazed at how much better he felt and a week later still improving. With these diseases I would take a larger amount at first to get things under control, such as 3 - 4 capsules three to four times a day, or more if needed and then over time cut it down to a maintenance dosage. I take 2 capsules twice a day to help keep my system under control.
I hope this clarifies the use of these two formulas. I truly feel that these herbs were placed on the earth for our use and that we can heal ourselves of any disease. Education is the key that will open the door to learning the use of this great gift. The online Family Herbalist course is available for only $195.00, regularly $500.00.
