  • Mullein is known by other names in other ancient cultures. The people of Rome and Ireland called it "lungwort"
  • Many of the herbs were named by these ancient people because of the body part the herb appeared to benefit. (Muenscher, 1935; DeBray, 1978 {paraphrased not quoted}).

What is the Immune System?

The immune system protects the body like a guardian from harmful influences from the environment and is essential for survival. It is made up of different organs, cells and proteins and aside from the nervous system, it is the most complex system that the human body has.

Without an immune system, a human being would be exposed to harmful pathogens germs bacteria and viruses from the outside and similar issues on the inside. All of these issues would be unstoppable and even fatal it the immune system was eliminated.

The body’s immune system is given the assignment of searching for and destroying anything that might cause a health problem. It is also supposed to recognize and neutralize harmful substances from the environment and fight against the body's own cells that have changed due to a health concern. The immune system is totally focused on your health and works hard to keep you running strong.

There are two different halves to the immune system. Basically, the first half is referred to as the innate immune system. It provides a general defense, so it is also called the nonspecific immune system. It works mostly at the cellular level searching and destroying would be immunal problems. The other half of the immune system is referred to as the adaptive immune system. It looks for microorganisms that are out of place. It is adaptive and seeks out those changes in the microorganisms and then defends against them.

The two halves work very closely together to make a complete immune system. When our immune system is working properly our chances of better health and well-being are greatly improved.

Are there steps that can be taken to improve my immune system?

The idea of boosting your immunity is enticing, but the ability to do so has proved elusive for several reasons. The immune system is a system, not a single entity. To function well, it requires balance and harmony amongst all of the working parts. There are healthy and unhealthy contributors to the immune system's overall performance. Sleeping habits, eating habits and stress loads all contribute to the immune system's capabilities.

The bottom line is that, as always, a healthy lifestyle contributes to a healthy immune system. To increase your immune system's health your first line of defense is to choose a healthy lifestyle. Following general good-health guidelines is the single best step you can take toward naturally keeping your immune system strong and healthy. Every part of your body, including your immune system, functions better when protected from environmental assaults and healthy-living strategies such as these are just the ticket to bouy up your immune response to a nasty pathogen who's only goal to to sicken the host that it is about to attack.

  • Don't smoke.
  • Everyone knows that smoking is bad for your health. It introduces carcinogens into your body that make your immune system have to perform tasks that aren't necessary. Smoking also blocks life supporting oxegen from being able to run free throughout your body and give support to the immune system. Smoking is definitely a double threat problem.
  • Eat a diet high in fruits and vegetables.
  • A healthy diet that keeps your body full of nutrition and contains enough fiber to keep everything that you consume moving through and being expelled from your body is essential to overall health.
  • Exercise regularly.
  • Diet and exercise! We hear it all of the time Exercise is just as important to overall health as diet. It doesn't take much but some exercise 3 to 5 times per week will do wonders for your immune system and its ability to defend you against the onslaught od disease that we come in contact with on a daily basis.
  • Maintain a healthy weight.
  • When referring to a healthy weight everyone assumes that the only condition that we're referring to is obesity, WRONG! A healthy weight is a healthy weight. A person can be under weight or over weight. Adjusting your diet and exercise routines to maintain a HEALTHY weight will definitely assist the efficacy of your immune system.
  • If you drink alcohol, drink only in moderation.
  • There are some reports that claim that a glass of wine every day has some health benefits. While that may be true drinking copious amounts of alcahol on a consistant basis is hard on your nervous system, your liver, your digestive tract and in many cases your cognative capabilities. Drinking occasionally may not have much of an effect but drinking daily increases the chances that your immune system won't be performing at its peak when you need it most.
  • Get adequate sleep.
  • While you are asleep your body gets a well needed break from all of the stresses, both physical and psychological, and strains of the hours spent awake. It is a time for refreshing, resetting and rejuvenating. The strength of your immune system depends on the rest of the body being well rested to be able to work properly. Getting enough sleep is absolutely key to a healthy immune system.
  • Take steps to avoid infection, such as washing your hands frequently and cooking meats thoroughly.
  • Mother alwys taught us to wash our hands. It has been scientifically proven that something as simple as washing your hands can eliminate a good percentage of the viral and bacterial threats your immune system might have to defend against.
  • Try to minimize stress.

  • If you think back on your life a cold or a flu always seems to come when everything else seems to be blowing up and stress is at its peak.

Is Your Immune System Strong and Fortified?

We all associate the coming of cold weather with certain aliments. Some people make an annual trek to their local health clinic for a vaccination just to hedge the bet a little against getting the flu. The way that the flu vaccine works is to inject a weakened version of the flu into your bloodstream. This causes antibodies to develop in the body about two weeks after vaccination. These antibodies provide protection against infection with the viruses that are in the vaccine. In other words the flu vaccine is actually the flu being placed in your body. Then your immune system develops the antibodies needed to defend you from that particular flu. The key on a personal level is to have a strong immune system!

Here are the immunal defense pointers.

  • Get plenty of sleep. The first and most important rule. A tired body is a sure way to become susceptable to disease.
  • Don't smoke!!! That means anything. The toxins that come from smoke and enter the bloodstream through the lungs have to be eliminated. The immune system can be taxed during this process.
  • Eat a healthy diet. All of the nutrition consumed in a healthy diet contributed to the health and strength of your immune system.
  • Exercise regularly. This keeps all of the "juices" flowing. Increased heart rate and blood flow isn't just for your cardio-vascular health. It also aids in making sure that all of your systems are being fed and oxygenated.
  • Be vigilant at being clean and sanitary. Wash you hands consistantly. Makje sure that you are using best practices when handling and cooking the food you eat.
  • When you feel that you are getting extra exposure find supplements that boost your immune system or at least fortify the vitamins, minerals and amino's that are connected to a healthy immune system.
