Dr. Beth Ley is a nutritionist, scientist, scholar, writer and publisher. She has studied and continues to study the natural substances in our bodies which promote immunity from disease and dysfunction and therefore, a more fulfilling and healthier life.
Her newest book, Immune System Control, focuses on colostrum, a vital immunity factor found in the early breast milk of humans and other mammals...and lactoferrin, also found in mother's milk as well as saliva, tears, nasal secretions and intestinal fluids. Both are linked to our immune system and affect every aspect of our lives.
Colostrum and lactoferrin can both be taken in oral lozenge form. Many pathogens can be stopped before they can enter our lungs, blood and intestines, by enhancing the immunity of the oral cavity and lymphatic system through stimulation by oral immune factors found in colostrum.
Dr. Ley offers evidence that these powerful immune regulators can help fight many common health problems, such as colds/flu, diarrhea, asthma/allergies, cancer, diabetes, gum disease, HIV, MS, GI problems...just to name a few. And so Immune System Control is a guide to better health through improved life-style, diet, balance and a keen understanding and appreciation of our natural immune system.
More...Dr. Ley has written Immune System Control in language easily understood; and in a style that allows the reader to reach logical conclusions. She has, in other words, translated complex scientific studies into a handbook that is as helpful as is clear.
This reviewer's eyes were opened by Immune System Control. Beth Ley, Ph.D. has given us a means to achieve better health at any age. Don't miss this one!
