In 1978 our family sold our home in Capistrano Beach, California and set off on an adventure that we didn’t ever regret. We had 1 box of memorabilia stored with my aunt and a child-size couch left with our pastor’s family. All our other belongings fit into 5 locker boxes. We traveled to San Jose, Costa Rica to go to the Instituto de Idiomas to learn Spanish. The plan was to move to El Salvador 9 months later to help build a Christian school at a radio station. We never made it to El Salvador because the war broke out and we couldn’t go. We began a journey of faith and stayed in Costa Rica. My parents lived there for 15 years. Where There is No Doctor by David Werner was a book that we brought with us; it was referenced often. We learned a lot about health care, emergencies, folk remedies, and preventive care during those years in Costa Rica. We are certain that these experiences laid the foundation for later work in the field of health. In 1997, 4 years after returning to California from missionary service, my dad founded Neurowaves, Inc.
Understanding the Immune System
Supporting a healthy immune system is everyone’s priority these days. Jeff gave a timely class on care for the immune system in January, 2020. He shared with our clients the things our family does to better understand and feed the immune system.
Humans have two unique immune systems. One system differentiates between the self and the non-self, or the Innate Immune System and the second, more highly developed Adaptive Immune system. The Adaptive Immune System has several types of responses. The thymus gland is what determines the kind of response that is activated by a particular immune challenge. It activates several types of white blood cells.
T cells (thymus cells) and B cells (bone marrow-derived cells) are the major cellular components of the adaptive immune response. T cells go on seek-and-destroy missions to find cells infected with bacteria, viruses or other invaders. B cells are primarily responsible for humoral, or antibody immunity. The two main organs that fight off disease are a healthy thymus and healthy bone marrow. “Feeding the body” and “less is better” are foundational to our recommendations.
Supporting and Feeding the Immune System
ACV Elixer: George’s First Go To Support
I remember drinking this as a teenager thinking it was worse than being sick! But I drank it and not surprisingly, we were rarely ever sick.
4-8 oz. warm water (not boiling)
1-2 tsp. Raw Organic Apple Cider Vinegar with the “mother” (Braggs is our favorite)
1-2 Raw Organic Honey (locally sourced is ideal)
- Optional:1-3 drops Young Living Thieves essential oil blend
Mix together and sip at least once a day, preferably in between meals.
Apple Cider Vinegar has a long history of safe, useful health benefits.
The thymus gland is situated behind your sternum, armpit level. Gentle, rhythmic tapping on this area of the breastbone stimulates your immune system, calms your emotions and helps to reduce stress. It also stimulates the same area used in Brain Gym to increase oxygenated blood to the brain (Brain Buttons). Do this as needed! You can use a tiny amount of your favorite Young Living Essential Oil and tap directly on the skin for added benefit. My favorite Young Living essential oil blend is Valor, a combination of Spruce, Rosewood, Blue Tansy and Frankincense in almond oil. It is helpful in overcoming fear, building confidence, promoting calmness and peace.
Standard Process is the company George chose early on in his practice. This company has provided amazing products since the 1920’s. They are made from whole food concentrates, many grown, harvested and manufactured on the company farm in Wisconsin. MediHerb is the herbal product line with Standard Process and complements the nutritional products. Our clients have access to direct ordering from Standard Process.

Calcium Lactate is essential for an effective immune system. The body converts calcium lactate into calcium bicarbonate, which is used by the immune cells to surround an infected cell to kill it.
Congaplex is a combination of Calcium Lactate, Thymex, Cataplex AC and Ribonucleic Acid.
Cataplex AC or Cataplex ACP is whole-food vitamin C.
Immuplex is a multi-vitamin for the immune system.
Epimune Complex a go-to product for immune challenges: preventive, acute and auto.
MH Andrographis Complex is a go-to product for acute immune challenges.
MH Echinacea Premium taken in the right context, it is the best immune product, provided the other nutritional components previously mentioned are present. This product works best used prophylactically.
With so many support options and with each persons individual immune challenges, testing is appropriate.
