How to Maintain a Healthy Immune System

 Many are extremely afraid of the COVID 19  and its effect. A healthy immune system will get you through, The immune system Is made up of organs and processes of the body that provides resistance to infection and toxins. These organs include the thymus gland, bone morrow  bowels mucous membrane, spleen ,tonsils and lymph nodes.,

Maintaining a Healthy Immune System, 

 

 There are 4 types of immunity: Humans have 3 types, innate, adaptive, and passive

1. innate: we are born with some level of immunity to invaders.

2. adaptive immunity (acquired) this protects the body from exposure to pathogens (bacterium, virus, parasite, and foreign bodies) the body remember them and can resist them if they attack again.

3.Passive immunity: antibodies deliver to and work for a shot time until the body can produce its own such as what is found in the first breast milk of mothers which protects newborn babies

4. immunization: is the process of making humans or animal immune through inoculation.

The immune system is a complex fighting system powered by liters of blood and lymph. (Lymph is a clear, colorless liquid that pass throughout the tissues of the body)

 In this blood and lymph white blood cells recognize and destroys invaders. Phagocytes and lymphocytes are the fighting cells) When the immune is low, we are more open to contracting diseases. If it is high, we are able fight off mild infections quickly or we do not contract them.  These are  reason the term is coined healthy blood perfect health and why health enthusiasts especially  herbalist always promote  detoxifying the body.

The indication that the immune is doing its job, is a resistance to disease or mild inflammation (acute) displaying itself as redness, heat, pain or swelling , fatigue and  excessive mucous like the reaction to the common cold or flu. These usually last for short periods of time and is necessary for healing. These symptoms informs us that something is wrong with our bodies.

A compromised immune system causes excessive inflammation (chronic) lasting for longer periods such as months, years or even a lifetime. In such cases an auto immune disease may manifest itself.  There are times however when the immune because of some types of malfunction the body is unable to differentiate between healthy body cells and harmful invaders and start destroying the good cells. In such instances it is said that an autoimmune disease has developed.

 Some of these auto immune diseases are lupus, asthma, psoriasis, rheumatoid arthritis, Inflammatory bowel disease, cancer, Multiple sclerosis, Guillain-Barre syndrome and, and a slew of other auto immune diseases.

 You notice two terms mild inflammation and excessive inflammation. This is where we play a part. If the body is exposed to too much inflammation for a long period of time a disease will develop such as heart disease, atherosclerosis, diabetes, asthma, sinusitis, hypertension, periodontist, or hay fever. We must try as best as we can to prevent excessive inflammation.

 

If there is no trauma or injury to the body, then there should be no or only mild cases  of inflammation. We constantly cause excessive inflammation through our lifestyle and diet.

In the book Ministry of healing we were instructed to follow the eight (8) health laws, Nutrition, Exercise, Water, Sunshine, Temperance, Adequate fresh Air, Rest, and Trust in the creator. These are our first line of prevention.

 

What Can We Do to Ensue We Have A Healthy Immune System?

1.    .1 The best thing  to keep the immune healthy is diet, exercise, sunshine, and rest. Nothing can replace those.

4.  2, Try as best to protect the body from excessive exposure  and  chills especially the   lung area and extremities, 

 3..     Reducing the foods that cause excessive inflammation e.g. mucous forming foods. (SUGARS, SODAS, REFINED PROCESSED FOODS. FOOD ADDITIVES)

 4.     Follow the A.I.P (auto Immune Protocol)

   

 The A.I.P. This includes identifying the trigger foods and remove them from the diet 

Eating dark green leafy and yellow vegetables, unprocessed grains. seeds, nuts, omega 3 foods, citrus, fruits, purple, blue and red berries, lean protein, olive oil, coconut oil, avocado oil. If diet is poor, you can introduce vitamin and mineral supplements

 Eliminating foods that can trigger reactions, such as the night shade foods, (tomato, Irish potato, sweet peppers, and garden eggs).

A.I.P requires that you find the inflammation triggering foods, then stop eating certain foods for a period. Notice how you feel as you eliminate them one at a time. Then gradually reintroduce them back one at a time and notice the results of each  such as  surge in the symptoms.

 The food that does not have any adverse effect you will keep that in the diet. The food that makes you feel sick you will have to take it out of your diet for months or maybe forever.

We can conclude: If we build our immune, we will have a good chance of keeping diseases at bay by just eating the right foods and in the right combination.

Never forget to make use of the health laws. Individuals who have an auto immune disease must pay stricter attention to the A.I.P, diet.

3 John 1: 2 Beloved I wish above all that thou may prosper and be in health, even as your soul prosper.
