IMMUNE SUPPORT


PLEASE SCROLL ALL THE WAY TO THE END TO CATCH WHAT MIGHT INTEREST YOU. Note the dates to identify latest info & additions. We now have over 120 links added to this site related to immune health and how natural care can work with medicine to help you.

This page includes: Introduction Monthly Corona Updates / Natural Healing Guides / Supplement Reviews / Home Care Tips / Final Thoughts -

-----    ----- INTRODUCTION TO IMMUNE HEALTH -----     -----

From a holistic health point of view, the GOAL is to have an optimized immune system that readily FIGHTS off any and every potential infection, allowing only mild symptoms (if any) while AVOIDING severe or lasting symptoms and death. How can you achieve this?

What makes the difference in your ability to fend off and recover from an illness? It depends in a large part on your overall health and the vitality of your immune system. Andrew Weil, M.D., in Spontaneous Healing reminds us that for every illness, there are people who have overcome it and recovered. Is it not incumbent on us, as physicians, to identify helpful contributing factors and recommend them for our patients' benefit? So that you can decide for yourself, we are sharing that supporting evidence on our website pages.

Although created to share important nutrition information during the pandemic of 2020, this will be helpful for numerous other immune challenges. (Scientists have identified over 1400 human pathogens including several coronaviruses.) Below are explanations and a series of videos and reference links explaining how your immune system is designed to protect your body and what you can do Naturally to support that process.  After considerable time reviewing published expertise from notable medical clinicians and scientists, I am confident to share those results with you.  To save you time, I have highlighted some of the most relevant content and hyper links .

WHY? EVEN THOUGH THERE IS SIGNIFICANT EVIDENCE FOR NUTRITION ADVICE, IT IS PERPLEXING TO SEE THAT THIS GUIDANCE IS NOT BEING OFFERED TO EVERY VULNERABLE PERSON, SENIOR AND FRONT LINE WORKER. FURTHERMORE, WHILE SOME DOCTORS ARE SHARING IT WITH THEIR PATIENTS, I AM UNABLE TO FIND A GOOD REASON WHY MOST HEALTH OFFICIALS DO NOT PROMPTLY DISCLOSE THIS INFORMATION TO EVERYONE FOR THEIR CONSIDERATION AND BENEFIT.  SEE FOR YOURSELF.

Mother Theresa once admonished, "Don't worry about the numbers. Help one person at a time - starting with the person nearest you." And so I am providing this information to you, my patients, so that you are empowered and have choices. This is what I use for my family. I hope that it can help yours too. If you have further questions or are looking for lab testing to see how healthy you are, please contact us anytime. Very truly yours, Chadd Rolland, D.C.

THIS INFORMATION HAS THE POTENTIAL TO HELP MANY PEOPLE.  

PLEASE SHARE IT WITH YOUR FRIENDS AND LOVED ONES.

    >>CORONA UPDATES MAY 2020  -  Tony Robbins Unmasking the Science videos & COVID-19 naturopathic care

(5/20/20 It is disturbing that some medical doctors, using emerging evidence to explain how patients can help themselves and how doctors can better treat their patients, are being blocked. If any of my links are not working (e.g. some Dr. Been, etc.), it is likely because they are being taken down.)

(5/5/20 An example of minimized information, is a study reviewed by Dr. John Campbell. It suggests that healthy levels of vitamin D3, which many do not have, may reduce COVID19 stroke complication mortality by 10X. Dr. Campbell brings out his concern that few officials seem to be discussing these studies!! (5/20/20 study suggests vitamin D may help suppress cytokine storms. It is being seen that over 90% of patients with severe symptoms have low vitamin D.) Although relatively easy to do, vitamin D3 levels unfortunately cannot be corrected overnightIt is this type of essential, low-cost, high-benefit information that we have been including in our Viral Support Nutrition Plan since early April. See our links below.)

-- SOME FINAL THOUGHTS --

Our purpose is to work alongside medicine, providing clear, reliable information so that people will know how their body works and what they can do on their own, to help themselves naturally. Many medical doctors do not have time to investigate and fully understand the usefulness of nutrition and traditional therapies, especially in the United States where holistic health care is generally not well integrated with medicine. 

**Remember that this information is for educational purposes and is not medical advice to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease. Optimal nutrition helps your body to be healthy and perform better. Although I believe this information is accurate and essential for every person, I do not know your individual condition.  Please review any questions or concerns with your healthcare professional. 

>> Please contact us if you wish to have a telemedicine consultation or have further questions as you explore these powerful, natural healing options for yourself and your loved ones. Wishing you the best of health and happiness, Chadd Rolland, D.C.

After my roomate insisted I go to Dr. Rolland, I no longer get headaches or kinks in my back. I sleep better and am more flexible!
