Immune Challenges

immune challenges

The body does not have an immune system as much as it is an immune system. A symphony of organ systems all working together: skeletal, respiratory, reproductive, digestive, endocrine & central nervous system. Without each part, the body’s immune response would cease to exist. We need the thymus to produce lymphocytes, the spleen to cleanse the blood, the hydrochloric acid in the stomach to destroy pathogenic microbes, the bone marrow to manufacture white blood cells and so on. In order to have a healthy immune system and immune response, we need to support & feed all aspects of the body.

It’s common for a subclinical bug or infection to be lingering in the body if you’ve ever before been sick. These pathogens can reside anywhere in the body, setting up a viable home, which allows them to proliferate and survive. There are two reasons for this. First, is that our bodies are undernourished. They do not have the tools (food) to function at their optimum level and therefore cannot fully fight & excrete the immune challenge. Americans are overfed and undernourished. The nutrients, microbes and trace minerals are no longer in our soil and therefore, are not getting into our bodies. Our bodies cannot function at their highest level as they do not have the tools necessary to do so. Secondly, and becoming more common, are the superbugs that are forming. Pathogens are becoming more and more resistant to common medications and antibiotics therefore making it harder to fully rid from the body.
