Activate your immune System.Activate your immune System…and protect yourself from bio-toxins, influenza and most every other disease
The human immune system is an amazing array of trillions of cells working together to accomplish the goal of identifying, destroying and eliminating, free radicals, bacteria, viruses, toxins, allergens and debris in our bodies. The team of organs, tissues, glands, fluids and cells carry out a sophisticated, nonstop, defense strategy 24/7. Some of the key players of the immune system are B-cells, Cytokines, T-cells and Macrophages. B cells originate in the bone marrow, lymph nodes, and spleen, produce antibodies to kill antigens. Cytokines are protein messengers that allow the cells of the immune system to communicate with one another. T-cells originate in the thymus gland and are involved with regulating the immune response and producing killer cells that also kill antigens. Macrophages are cells that are produced in the bone marrow and circulate throughout the body attacking invaders and removing dead cells, toxins and all debris. Macrophages also support the health and function of other immune team members.. The thymus gland secrets hormones that are very important in regulating immune function. The thymus gland shrinks with age and is very susceptible to free radical damage caused by poor diet, excessive stress, infections and radiation and chemotherapy. The working immune system clearly shows the interdependence and importance of all the glands, organs, and parts of the body.
Factors that weaken immune function
· Environmental toxins in air, water and food
· Unhealthy lifestyle habits
· Extended periods of stress
· Dramatic lifestyle changes
· Emotional imbalance
It is estimated that over half of Americans suffer from a compromised immune system.
Symptoms of a weak immune system include allergies, frequent colds and flu, sinus, ear, throat, skin, urinary tract and vaginal infections. Slow healing wounds, chronic fatigue, candidiasis, and of course degenerative diseases such as cancer, aids and premature aging e also due to a weaken immune system.
Supporting your immune system naturally is the most important element in building resistance to illness and disease. Whether it be the flu, smallpox or anthrax, a strong immune system is the best defense. Ultimately, only our body’s natural defenses can truly heal the body long term. Drugs and vaccines are sometimes necessary, but they always have side effects and they tend to depress our body’s natural functions. The crucial missing link in modern medicine is stimulating the patient’s own immune system.
