The Truth: About your Immune System

It’s only when you get sick, that you visit your “doctor”. immuned

It’s only when you are healthy, that your doctor visits “you”.

As most correctly believed, a doctor protects your health and heals you. However, a “real doctor” actually visits you every day, every hour and every minute of your life.

You have medical supervision 24/7 and it’s absolutely free.

So it is very important you know who your “real doctor” is to start with.

Asking my patients about how well they understand their immune system, is one of the most important questions on my list.  The reason being, it tells me what and how much they know about their “doctor”.

Your immune system is your “true doctor” at a physical level.

It’s important that you know why I call Your Immune System a doctor?

The immune system is made up of a combination of many organs, specialized proteins, white blood cells, and antibodies.

The immune system is built into man’s body as a line of defense to protect him from being destroyed by an unfriendly environment.

The body’s defenses are skin, mucous membranes, friendly bacteria, tear glands, fever, lymphatic system, fighter cells, and the immune system. The immune system contains about a trillion cells called lymphocytes and about 100 trillion molecules called antibodies. These cells provide protection against.

Your immune system is your doctor that protects you from all microscopic enemies seeking to attack the body

We build our immune system by eating raw food and drinking the juices of raw fruits/vegetables, staying hydrated and exercising!!!

We immobilize our immune system by putting harmful substances into our body!!!

For example:  white table sugar (which is literally a drug), paralyzes the immune system. Just nine teaspoons of sugar (one soda pop contains 10), in a day will immobilize the immune system by about 33%, while approximately 30 teaspoons of sugar will wipe out the immune system from even functioning that day.

High fat intake, white table salt, Alcohol, cigarettes, refined and processed food, Caffeine and basically anything that is made artificially seriously impairs the immune systems functions.

All pharmaceutical drugs and pain killers adversely affect the immune system as well.

So check your own nutrition intake before passing the buck on to germs and virus.

Understanding your health, the food & beverage industry, your body, your environment and medicine is becoming more and more important in today’s world. With regards to health, ignorance is not bliss, it’s painful and immobilizing.

A healthy immune system can keep you from getting the flu, colds, cancer and other illnesses. A healthy diet means a healthy immune system. The better you eat the better you can avoid sickness, and fight it off when you do find yourself down with something. It is extra important for people with immune suppressing illnesses like cancer to eat a healthy diet and exercise every day. Fresh fruits and vegetables are not the only sources of immune boosting nutrients, but they are the best to get your body on the right track to health and wellness.

The Truth: About “Change of Season Flu”

 The monsoons are here in Mumbai and everyone seems to be catching the flu. The explanation I am given most times is “it’s in the air.”

The truth is that “IT” meaning germs and virus are always in the air, different types in different seasons, and Nature knows this from the very beginning.

That’s why God/nature/universe whatever you call it, built into man’s body a line of defense to protect him from being destroyed by an unfriendly environment. The body’s defenses are skin, mucous membranes, friendly bacteria, tear glands, fever, lymphatic system, fighter cells, and the immune system. The immune system contains about a trillion cells called lymphocytes and about 100 trillion molecules called antibodies. These cells provide protection against all microscopic enemies seeking to attack the body.

The Truth: It is only when our immune system is down, do we get sick with season change.

We build our immune system by eating raw food and drinking the juices of raw fruits/vegetables, staying hydrated and exercising!!!

We immobilize our immune system by putting harmful substances into our body!!!

For example:  white table sugar (which is literally a drug), paralyzes the immune system. Just nine teaspoons of sugar (one soda pop contains 10), in a day will immobilize the immune system by about 33%, while approximately 30 teaspoons of sugar will wipe out the immune system from even functioning that day.

High fat intake, white table salt, Alcohol, cigarettes, refined and processed food, Caffeine and basically anything that is made artificially seriously impairs the immune systems functions.

All pharmaceutical drugs and pain killers adversely affect the immune system as well.

So check your own nutrition intake before passing the buck.

Apart from this, what is also important to understand is that all the hype that western medicine has created of a fever being a sickness or a viral infection is untrue.

It is important to understand that sometimes your body needs to fight infections using fever. A fever occurs when the body faces a threat from virus or bacteria and need to eliminate it from your system by killing it. We know that germs growing in cultures die if you turn up the temperature too much. The same is happening in your body when your brain turns up the temperature when you get sick. Getting a fever is an important part of your body’s defense against infection.

“Fever is the doctor at work, not the problem”. Fever is part of the immune system that needs to be complimented with rest and hydration, not supplemented with paracetamols to reduce the fever and antibiotics to kill the germs/virus because that’s exactly what the fever is there to do if you only allow it to.

It’s hard to believe, but for flu the best remedy is EAT LIGHT, REST and HYDRATE.

EAT LIGHT: This is to avoid excess load on the body while it does the healing. Digestion takes up a lot of energy and slows down the healing process. Eat more raw foods and less cooked.

REST: the fact that you feel weak, is your body telling you it has no spare energy to give you, so respect that and stay put in bed for a day or two or three max.

Last but not the least

HYDRATE : It is important to increase fluid intake(fruit/vegetable juices & water) when you have a fever, since it increases evaporation of water from your body and you could get dehydrated, which then further increases the fever causing you to believe that it is out of your control.

The Truth: About Fever

“[The body is] a marvelous machine … a chemical laboratory, a powerhouse. Every movement, voluntary or involuntary, full of secrets and marvels!” — Theodor Herzl

The human body is created perfectly to function at full potential. Your body is designed with survival as its primary function.

In many religions around the world it is said, the human body – is one of nature’s most complicated creations, a marvel beyond description –it works exactly perfectly, it maintains  Cells, Tissues, and Membranes | Skeletal System | Muscular System |   Nervous  System | Endocrine System | Cardiovascular System | Lymphatic System | Respiratory System | Digestive System | Urinary System | Reproductive System working together in harmony.

The  body has a  line of defense to protect him from being destroyed by an unfriendly environment. The body’s defenses are skin, mucous membranes, friendly bacteria, tear glands, lymphatic system, fighter cells, immune system and FEVER, and if this doesn’t convince you of how organized and efficient your body is, here are another 15 Most Amazing Facts About The Human Body that will prove to you that the body is far more sophisticated than you could ever imagine.

Many people think that had a high fever ends up with some sort of injury, like brain damage, hearing loss or other problems. These problems are never caused by fever. The likely explanation is that they had a serious illness that gave them a fever but it was the illness that caused the brain damage etc. The fever was only trying to help fight the infection.

It is important to understand that sometimes your body needs to fight infections using fever. A fever occurs when the body faces a threat from virus or bacteria and need to eliminate it from your system by killing it. We know that germs growing in cultures die if you turn up the temperature too much. The same is happening in your body when your brain turns up the temperature when you get sick. Getting a fever is an important part of your body’s defense against infection. “Fever is the doctor at work, not the problem”.

All the hype that western medicine has created of a fever being a  sickness or a viral infection is untrue. Understanding your body is very important, the perspective we have on our bodies today is extremely conditioned, our beliefs of nutrition good health and what is beneficial for us is driven by a very commercial motive for profit. And not what is actually in our best interests. This has today resulted in the general ill-health of society.

It’s hard to believe, but for a common fever the best remedy is REST and HYDRATION. It is important to increase fluid intake when you have a fever, since it increases evaporation of water from your body and you could get dehydrated, which then further increases the fever causing you to believe the it is out of your control.

Try this simple remedy the next time you feel feverish and start allowing your body to do what its best at.. “Healing you naturally & keeping you healthy” !!!!
