    The Immune System

    When reading this article please keep in mind that supplements are not drugs. They are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease. These articles are truly just for your information.

    Our body has a miraculous defense mechanism which is called the immune system. This system is our body’s natural defense against illness and injury and will heal us naturally if we protect this system from damage.  Since our immune system is an integral part of our overall health and well-being it is important to do all we can to keep it functioning properly.
    Have you ever noticed that there are people who breeze through year after year without doing anything special and yet never seem to get sick? Have you noticed that there are people that take every precaution and no matter how careful they are they catch everything? The difference between either of these two scenarios is the strength of the immune system. The idea of boosting your immunity is something that people have desired to do for ages, but the ability to do so is harder than it seems. The immune system is a system, not something simple like an organ or a muscle. There is still much that scientists don't know about the immune system and its response. That doesn't mean that there aren't some core principals to follow that help maintain your immune system.

    What exactly is an immune system?
    The immune system, which is made up of special cells, proteins, tissues, and organs It defends people against germs and microorganisms that cause disease every day. Through a series of steps called the immune response, the immune system attacks organisms and substances that invade body systems and cause disease. The immune system uses white blood cells, also called leukocytes, which come in two basic types that combine to seek out and destroy disease-causing organisms or substances.

    How does it work?
    The leukocytes circulate through the body between the organs and nodes via lymphatic vessels and blood vessels much like sentry guards might guard a castle. The leukocytes work in a coordinated manner to monitor the body for germs or substances that might cause problems. When antigens (foreign substances that invade the body) are detected the immune system starts its response and sends those sentry guards out on a search and destroy mission.

    What keeps the immune system healthy and active?
    The best answer to this question is lifestyle choices. 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 is bolstered by healthy-living strategies. All of the suggestions listed below really do help your whole body including your immune system function better. 

    If you want vibrant health, and also want to defend yourself against the many baffling new pathogens/ antigens that are showing up in our food and our environment, you need to take care of your immune system.

    You need to do all that you can to guard and strengthen your immune system. 

  • 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 (cigarettes, cigars, e-cigarettes, marijuana). 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 contributes 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 (nourished) and oxygenated.
  • Be vigilant at being clean and sanitary. Wash you hands consistantly. Make sure that you are using best practices when handling and cooking the food you eat.
  • What weakens or taxes the immune system?

  • Eating unhealthy greasy fast foods. Drinking sugary or large quantities of alcaholic drinks.
  • Staying up late or not getting enough sleep.
  • Many chemicals, pesticides, pollutants, food additives, animal toxins, alcohol and narcotics weaken our immune system.Try to avoid these as much as possible.
