The immune system provides a barrier between illness and wellness, and between life and death. The immune system is composed of the thymus, spleen, bone marrow, appendix, tonsils, and the lymphatic system. Let’s not forget the intestines and even glial cells of the brain that house a large percentage of the immune system. So a healthy gut and brain are primal defense for health and wellness.
There are many B cells, T cells, Natural Killer cells, white blood cells, and many other biochemical warfare agents that stand as ready soldiers to protect the body.
It is when the body becomes burdened and depleted through poor diet, stress, inflammation, toxic exposures, negative emotions, and sleep deprivation that infectious invaders overwhelm and compromise the various components of the immune system such as the lymphatic system, the spleen, or any of those mentioned previously.
Low sodium to potassium ratio seen in analysis of a hair mineral test is typically associated with chronic infections. These infections could even be bound-up in the cellular tissue of the body, especially in areas of poor circulation, or where biofilms have encompassed a virus, bacteria, or other infectious invaders. The body is not so anxious to depart with these, then, that is why supporting the body’s natural detoxification ability is crucial.
Autoimmune disorders occur when the immune system does not respond properly to messaging signals in various parts of the body. While the scientific community is unsure of the cause, it is clear that part of the cause is from a body that is burdened from any kind of pathogenic activity such as virus, bacteria, parasites, fungus, chemicals, heavy metals, and other toxins. The body interprets friendly activity, such as the release of hormones, as foreign and dangerous, and will intercept and inactivate these healthy biochemical signals. Eliminating immune system interferences is the first step to eliminate the following complicated autoimmune diseases:
- Rheumatoid arthritis
- Multiple Sclerosis
- Hashimoto’s thyroiditis
- Chrohn’s disease
- Ankylosing spondylitis
- Connective tissue disease
- Myasthenia gravis
- Lou Gehrig’s disease
