The human body is a well-tuned machine, efficient beyond comparison. The question is - do you have the right manual to take care of your body?
For more than 30 years, Ulf Kilman has specialized in health, learning from the best from around the world to help his clients as quickly and efficiently as possible. We have clients from over 30 countries who come here to get healthier or perform better. Our clients have recovered from chronic diseases, broken world records and won international championship medals in many different sports. While we've seen that a lot of general health advice is true, we've also identified a number of truths that set us apart. By applying these truths, we at KILMAN HEALTH have been able to help our clients reach new levels.
It’s currently more relevant than ever to build a robust immune system. Particularly as it soon emerged that younger individuals in good health manage to fight off the Covid-19 virus better than others. A strong and healthy immune system can handle most things. These days most people know how to support their health by eating the right foods, taking regular exercise and fresh air and getting adequate sleep - but many people still don't prioritise their health. However, during the present time you may now find yourself with sufficient time and energy to make your health a top priority.
In order to maximise your health you need to understand that everything counts. Your life energy works in exactly the same way as a bank account. In order to fill your bank account you need to work smarter, or harder or specialise in something others want to buy. You may also increase your bank balance by clever investments and by avoiding unnecessary expenditure, for example.
Improving your immune system is a similar process. You can make smarter choices with regard to food and the environments where you spend your time. You can increase your intake of healthy foods, exercise more efficiently and focus on following your own body’s health code by listening to your nervous system, so that you only eat and use products that support your health or at worst are neutral for you.
You can also ensure that you get enough rest and recovery and avoid unnecessary energy drains such as toxins, junk food, unhealthy environments, stress, chemicals, alcohol, drugs, medication and other factors that interfere with your body’s ability to communicate internally to handle your present situation.
So what can we do to look after ourselves and improve our immune defence?
As most of us are aware, the most important points to strengthen the immune system are as follows:
- Breathing should be deep and relaxed so that the diaphragm can massage the inner organs. Many practise breathing exercises by inhaling deeply, but it’s also important to exhale and empty the lungs of air.
- Time for Sleep and recovery to provide recuperation, reflection, growth and healing.
- Exercise to strengthen the heart, cardiovascular system, muscles, joints, the skin, internal organs and bodily processes. If we don’t move our body it stagnates. The heart and cardiovascular system need to be challenged and the same goes for muscles and joints so that we can avoid becoming weaker and stiffer as we get older. We will cover the most effective ways of exercise and training in a separate blog post.
- A healthy diet, rich in nutrients that the body can absorb and utilise and that suits the individual, is important. The base of the diet should be vegetables and berries. These contain most things that our bodies require. Diet will also be highlighted in a separate blog.
To begin doing things right is vital for your health, but it’s also just as necessary to stop doing things wrong. In this respect, we would like to add a final, but essential point:
- Avoid exposing yourself to things that break you down. This can be anything from certain items of food, alcohol, drugs, medicine, some types of exercise or destructive environments, thoughts or emotions. In other words anything that prevents you from feeling good.
Perhaps what makes our methods different from other health practitioners is that we have seen how essential it is that the internal communication within the body is functioning as it should. For the correct communication to take place, the nervous system needs access to accurate information. There should be no false signals or loss of information from any part of the body. In our work, over the years, we have seen that there are usually three reasons why the nervous system fails to operate properly:
- The body is in an allergic state
- The body is uneven
For a fully functioning immune system we need to avoid the above error modes.
- Dehydration occurs when we don’t drink enough clean water.
- An allergic state or “loss of clarity” can happen for many different reasons, such as overload, stress, unhealthy foods, electromagnetic radiation etc.
- We become distorted when the nervous system loses information to areas and organs of the body as a result of our lifestyle. People who have suffered physical or psychological trauma can have problems with this, as can those who are sensitive to electromagnetic radiation or certain foods (most commonly wheat flour, but there can be other allergens as well). Another common cause of lopsidedness is wearing shoes that are poorly constructed or contain chemicals that interfere with the body.
Before we start to work with a client, we balance their body and reset all three errors, otherwise we would only ever treat the symptoms rather than the underlying cause. The client may find that the error signals recur, but the better the lifestyle they adopt and the healthier they become, the more adept the body gets at avoiding these “error modes”.
When your nervous system communicates correctly, your muscles have full function and your internal organs are also provided with accurate information, meaning that hormone balance, digestion and immune system can work at an optimal level. This makes it easer to handle any microbes you encounter on a daily basis.
With every breath you ingest around 10,000 pathogens. Eating, drinking, showering, bathing etc. provides the immune system with even more microbes and chemicals to process. If your immune defence is weak, viruses, bacteria, fungi, parasites, mycotoxins or chemicals etc, can take a stronghold in your body. Even though our healthcare system is very skilled, the medical profession cannot resolve everything. As a society we need to collectively help by living as healthily as we possibly can to minimise ill-health in our society.
Today we are faced with an even bigger problem than Covid-19. This has been known for some time now. Starvation, suicide, childbirth, cancer and above all heart disease take many lives. Hospitals save lives, but far too many antibiotics have been prescribed unnecessarily. Antibiotics only work on bacteria and have been administered frequently. Due to overuse of antibiotics some bacteria are now multi-resistant. This has been known for many years, but the overuse has continued.
How bad is it?
The following facts have been extracted directly from the WHO website:
- Antibiotic resistance is one of the biggest threats to global health, food security and development today.
- Antibiotic resistance can affect anyone, of any age, in any country.
- Antibiotic resistance occurs naturally, but misuse of antibiotics in humans and animals is accelerating the process.
- A growing number of infections - such as pneumonia, tuberculosis, gonorrhoea and salmonellosis - are becoming harder to treat as the antibiotics used to treat them become less effective.
- Antibiotic resistance leads to longer hospital stays, higher medical costs and increased mortality.
One of the biggest problems is that it’s expensive and time consuming to develop new antibiotic medicine. Today the pharmaceutical companies spend more and mor on developing medicines but less and less get approved so it is a high risk development. Out of the 18 largest pharmaceutical companies, all but 2 have ceased their efforts to develop antibiotics. Antibiotics are usually taken for 1-2 weeks only and are not nearly as lucrative as the manufacture of medication for high blood pressure, diabetes and other pharmaceuticals which are prescribed for life.
How strong is the human body?
The human body has a fantastic ability to adapt. We are more sensitive than cockroaches and banana flies, but we possess an immense ability to build up our immune system to be able to handle the environment that we live in, if only we give ourselves everything that we need, and avoid things that break us down.
The problem is that these days we travel extensively and import food from other parts of the world. The wider our global contact sphere becomes, the more important is our body’s immune defence. We need to get better at taking care of our health.
Many people take fever reducing medicines instead of letting the body raise the temperature naturally to kill viruses and bacteria, which are extremely sensitive to heat. We are generally now more stressed, spend too much time indoors and our breathing is often too shallow. We are also more sedentary, don’t have a varied enough diet, eat processed, gene manipulated food, which is less nutritious than it used to be.
How do we go forward?
Important questions to the decision makers:
- How can resources be divided to inspire employees, citizens and young people to adopt a healthier lifestyle?
- What type of projects should be prioritised to enable more people to live healthier lives?
- How can we ensure that research is focused on health instead of the projects that give the big pharma companies the most profit?
- How can we secure the health of our employees, citizens and young people in order to minimise ill-health and injuries in society?
- How should our legal framework be structured so that we can reduce the risk of developing vaccines, medicines and other solutions that can be harmful in the longer term in exchange for just a short term gain?
- What health parameters are important to measure and monitor, in order to minimise ill-health?
- What resources, rules, guidelines and structures do we need and which ones are most effective in times of epidemics, crises and new situations, to prevent the spread of disease, economic hardship and physical and mental illness?
Important questions to individuals:
- What can I do to adopt and maintain a mindset that makes me always prioritise my every day health?
- How can I inspire myself and my loved ones to adopt a healthy and abundant lifestyle, looking after body and soul?
- How can I structure my days to have enough time to take care of my health?
- What can I do to quickly build up my health?
- Which every day energy-draining factors that break down my health can I start to avoid?
We believe that the solution to the problem is for us all to take collective responsibility and start to do what we can. Countries, companies, associations, groups and individuals have different strengths, varying resources and levels of awareness. We can all start to live as health consciously and clean as possible in our food choices, thoughts, emotions, expressions and actions.
Regardless of age, gender, religion or skin colour we are all the same. We are born, we live and we die. With the correct information, knowledge and awareness we can turn the tide and strengthen our immune defence. Together we can make our world a safer, healthier place.
Fear, violence, compulsion and control will not make us more secure. Security comes with knowledge, responsibility, compassion, understanding, respect and to include instead of exclude. With an understanding of the parts but with the whole in mind we can create a better world. We can all start from within!
We can all start with ourselves!
Be your best! Do your best!
