The health of “the immune system” is actually the health of the whole person. Despite both professional and popular media attention about the “immune system” since the onset of the AIDS crisis, the body does not have an immune system as much as it is an immune system in its functional totality.
Systems such as the skeletal system, respiratory system, reproductive system, endocrine system, central nervous system, etc., are complete functioning systems with a clear set of organs and responses.
The human body does not have a single immune system, as it is better described as an immune alliance among various systems and organs, which when coordinated by the brain, give an immune response to the presence of disease associated factors, such as certain bacteria or viruses.
The immune alliance is composed of the thymus (endocrine) for lymphocytes, spleen (lymphatic, blood) for antibodies, long bones (skeletal) marrow-blood, stomach (digestive system-HCI to destroy ingested parasites and other pathogens), intestinal flora (digestive) destroy pathogenic microbes and manufacture B12 and all other B vitamins, neurotransmitters, carry out heavy metals, etc., and liver for detoxification and enzyme production.
Therefore, what is referred to as “the immune system” cannot be enhanced without enhancing the overall health of the whole body in complete resistance to disease.
With this complexity in mind, it becomes clear that a multifaceted approach must be made to stimulate and strengthen these diverse aspects. By combining organic forms of the below listed nutrients from food sources, these impact the entire immune alliance.
The enzymes produced in the liver, pancreas and spleen, such as superoxide dismutase and catalase, are formed from these nutrients. So again, the health of “the immune system” is actually the health of the whole person.
Getting the gut healthy so you can break down proteins and emulsify fats, establishing healthy flora in your gut to enable it to attack pathogens, absorb nutrition, excrete toxins, create all the B vitamins – let alone the neurotransmitters that give us a reason for living (serotonin, dopamine, endorphins, etc.) is the foundation of your immune system. Then, detoxification followed by fortification and nutritional maintenance is the long-term approach to supporting the whole person.
Supplements can play an important role in alleviating or eliminating the symptoms of Immune System Support. Supplements aid the body in its own ability to address immune system problems. By unleashing the Forbidden Doctor within, this protocol gives support to a body and an immune system healing itself.
