Strengthening the Immune System:
Strengthening the immune system is not only vital for recovering from illness, but also for maintaining good health for us and our pets. The immune system is the collective army of a trillion white blood cells, bone marrow, antibodies, and the thymus gland that help to identify and destroy the millions of microbes (i.e. bacteria, viruses, parasites, fungi) that penetrate our bodies and our pets every day, and the thousands of our own cells and our pets that have become genetically abnormal and cancerous.
The strength of our immune system determines our body’s ability to resist infection and the growth of abnormal (cancerous) cells. If it is below optimum level, we are much more prone to illness, both from infections and cancers. If our immune system is maintained at optimal level, our incidence of disease is less, and we are less likely to develop abnormal cell growth. Also, when we do become ill or have a physical injury, a healthy immune system can ensure the fastest possible recovery.
There are several factors that reduce the strength of the immune system:
Poor nutrition: the modern diet is depleted of many of the vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and the other nutritive factors that are essential to the body to maintain a healthy immune system.
A polluted environment: as our environment becomes more polluted, our bodies have to cope with a grater “toxic load”. This comes into the body through the food we eat, our lungs and our skin, and also from the exposure to sunlight and electrical equipment. When the toxic load rises, the immune system has to work harder to identify and detoxify these pollutants – lowering its efficiency.
Stress: when we are stressed, evolution has designed our bodies to get ready for action (flight or fight) by diverting all resources to the muscles. Bodily functions considered unnecessary in an emergency situation are temporarily closed down such as digestion, repair mechanisms and immune function.
Drugs: both medicinal and recreational drugs can substantially lower the immune system. For example, antibiotics destroy the healthy bacteria in our stomachs, which are essential for healthy digestion. Immune system depletion is also an unfortunate side effect of some of today’s modern treatments (for example in chemotherapy and radiation therapy), which can decimate immune resilience.
“We need to arm ourselves against the harmful ailments attacking our bodies and our pets every day. Our biggest defense against outside invaders is the immune system. Failing to keep this system fortified put us and our pets at risk for bacteria, viruses and diseases we’d all rather do without. Don’t let your guard down – help your body and your pets support a healthy immune system”
