Immune System

Can you avoid getting a cold or flu this winter?

Yes, you can!

There are steps you can take to reduce your chance
of getting a cold or flu, or reduce the severity and duration.

See recommended products below.

Your Internal Security Force

In a world filled with viruses and bacteria, good health and resistance to disease is no accident. It requires a strong immune system. We should consider the immune system as a internal security force that is constantly monitoring everything entering our body.

Why do some people seem to never catch a cold, while others come down with colds several times a year? A decrease in the effectiveness of our immune system is a major factor in catching a cold or flu. The immune system is a truly remarkable body function that protects us against invading viruses, bacteria and other microorganisms.

The cold virus is actually composed of approximately one hundred different kinds of rhino viruses. With this number of different viruses available it is no wonder that the immune system constantly encounters variations, and there is no lifetime immunity against colds and flus.

There are distinct differences between a cold and the flu. A cold comes on slowly, rarely is accompanied by fever, and exhibits localized symptoms such as running nose and sneezing. A flu, on the other hand, comes on swiftly and with severity. It is accompanied by fever, with general symptoms such as fatigue, chills, body aches and a dry, hacking cough. Viruses are transmitted when a person comes into contact with someone carrying a cold or flu virus. It can enter the body when someone touches their eyes or nose. When it comes through the nose, such as when someone sneezes in your vicinity, it is transported to the back of the throat where it attaches to the mucous membranes and begins to move to the respiratory tract.

Critical Immune Function Cascade

The body's immune system is composed of the lymphatic system, the thymus gland, spleen, tonsils, and lymph nodes. When the virus is detected, a healthy immune system will immediately take action. A message is sent to the thymus gland to begin producing T cells which begin to attack the virus.
B cells which originate in the bone marrow produce antibodies against the invading virus. Other cells, called leukocytes, lymphocytes, and macrophages are also produced. They have as their function the responsibility of slowing down and killing the virus. This immune function cascade is critical in assisting the body to defeat the onslaught of the foreign invaders.

We recommend the following products to support and build a strong immune system:
