Why do people respond differently to a viral illness and what you can do to boost your immune system.
People may respond differently to a viral illness due to the current state of their immune system. They immune system is a complex system. It can be under-activated or over-activated. An overactive immune system can cause continued inflammation in the body and conditions such as auto-immune illnesses. Auto-immune illnesses such as Rheumatoid arthritis and Hasimotos thyroiditis are caused by the immune system being over-activated that it begins to loose sense of the “enemy” and its own tissue, and begins to attack its ownself.
Under-activated immune systems are conditions were the immune response is depressed such as in patients with immune systems disorders caused by genetics, old age, or infections. A good example is HIV patients, where the immune cells are attacked by the virus and unable to do its job. As we age, our immune-system is also less responsive to illnesses. Patients at both end of the spectrum (over or under activation) are more susceptible to viral illnesses.
The skin and the GI system (and lungs), hosts the highest number of immune cells as they are usually the first organs to face an invader. That is why many patients with immune issues have GI problems such as leaky gut – where the toxins are able to enter the bloodstream , hence the term leaky gut and cause an over-activation of the immune system.
Many patients with immune disorders also suffer from rashes and skin disorders due to activation of the skin immune response. In order to achieve success in treatment of patients with these conditions and to enhance the immune system, one most always look and treat the gut simultaneously.
Although complex, one of the first lines of defense of the immune system is the Natural killer (NK) immune defense. This arm of the immune system is activated before the body has time to produce antibodies to protect itself. One of the ways to boost our immune system is to enhance the Natural Killer immune system.
Immune Booster Protocol
Our Immune Booster one month protocol enhances your Natural killer (NK) immune defense system. It includes ingredients that combine the best of modern and homeopathic medicine. These supplements specifically work on rebuilding your first line of your immune defense system, the Natural Killer cell system.
The Natural killer (NK) cell system is your body’s immune system that shows strong function against physiologically stressed cells such as tumor cells and virus-infected cells. NK cells are made for killing. They are constantly on patrol, looking for harmful cells that would like to take up residence in your body and destroy your health, like cancer cells and virus-infected cells.
When NK-cells find these “body invaders, they activate your immune system. Unfortunately, NK-cell function, power, and activity fluctuate throughout your life. As your NK-cell function wears down, your response declines, your “defense department” doesn’t attack and kill the “bad guys” as vigorously as it should, leaving you more vulnerable to illness.
