a. About the Immune System

The immune system is an intricate network of specialized cells, proteins, tissues, and organs that protect against disease. Specifically, it is the body’s system for fighting invasion from various pathogens (e.g., bacteria, viruses, parasites, toxins, and cancer cells) and includes the bone marrow, lymph nodes, thymus, tonsils, and parts of the spleen and gastrointestinal tract, as well as a large number of blood cells and proteins.

The immune system can be divided into two interdependent arms according to the level of specificity: the innate immune system and the adaptive immune system. The innate immune system is non-specific against pathogens, and includes physical and chemical barriers such as the skin, lymphatic system, and specific proteins in body fluids. The adaptive immune system is specific against pathogens and includes white blood cells such as B lymphocytes that make antibodies and T lymphocytes that orchestrate antigen-specific killing. It also features a memory system, making re-infection by the same pathogen unlikely.

A weakened immune system compromises the body’s innate ability to fight disease. This may result in increased cold and flu vulnerability, frequent sicknesses, allergies, and general fatigue. A strong immune system is important for health maintenance, especially with the gradual increase in levels of environmental toxins and the accompanying immune challenges.

b. Causes of a Weakened Immune System

Various external influences can have a hand in immune system depression. Considerations include emotional stress, physical stressors (e.g., inadequate sleep or athletic overtraining), occupational or environmental chemical exposure, certain drug therapies, UV and other types of radiation, blood transfusions, and surgery. Dietary habits can also have an effect: excessive consumption of fat, alcohol, and refined sugars can negatively impact immune reponse, as can inadequate protein, water, calorie, mineral, or vitamin intake. Foods containing pesticides and preservatives may increase one’s chances of developing chronic conditions. Excessive drug use, such as the intake of antibiotics and fever-fighting medications, can also suppress healthy immune system function.

A healthy lifestyle is essential to maintaining one’s strength and wellbeing. Obesity affects your body’s white blood cells, impeding their ability to multiply, produce antibodies and prevent infection. Lack of exercise can also stagnate blood flow, preventing toxin overturn in your body, while lack of hygiene exposes your body to more germs than necessary. Smoking, radiation (sun) exposure, and alcohol consumption are all additional forms of toxin exposure. Lastly, immune function decreases with age, especially after 40.

Chronic immunodeficiency is often genetic, although it may also be acquired from certain dieseases such as HIV/AIDS or Common Variable Immunodefiency (CVID). Other conditions such as multiple sclerosis, fibromyalgia, cancer, Crohn’s disease, and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) may place undue stress on the immune system, weakening its ability to deal with infectious agents.

c. Signs and Symptoms of Weakened Immune System

Impaired immune function manifests itself in varying ways and degrees. The most common symptoms include increased susceptibility to disease, slow-healing wounds, and commonly recurring infections. Patients with impaired immune systems may experience colds, flu or fungal infections more frequently, and these illnesses may be more severe or longer-lasting than average. In addition, frequent kidney, sinus or ear infections as well as frequently-infected wounds may signal a weakened immune response.

Decreased immune system activity may lead to various negative consequences including frequent skin infections or viral infections such as flu and bronchitis, dark circles around the eyes, depression, and fatigue. It also opens the way to several other health complications including slow wound healing, night blindness, tumor growth, and autoimmune disease.

d. Prevention and Treatment

As mentioned before, a healthy lifestyle is essential to maintaining a healthy immune system. Limit fat and refined sugar intake while making sure you are providing your body with all necessary calories and nutrients. High-quality multivitamins or mineral supplements may help with maintenance: consider B6, B12, folate, pantothenic acid, C, zinc, selenium, chromium, manganese, TMG, zinc, vitamin C and other antioxidants. Avoid toxic substances or exposure, whether that be UV or other radiation, smoking, alcohol, drug use, environmental chemicals, or so on. It is also important to drink plenty of water, as this will flush the body of toxins while keeping it hydrated. Exercise regularly to increase strength and circulation while getting enough sleep for rejuvenation.
