In this video, we’re going to talk about how you can bulletproof your immune system. First, let’s talk about what the immune system is.
The immune system is basically your body’s army for fighting off pathogens, which cause disease. In particular, the pathogens we’re talking about are microbes, like bacteria and viruses.
There are three main barriers to the immune system—skin, mucous lining, and inflammation.
Once a pathogen is in the body, your body deploys its counter-attack using white blood cells (WBC) and friendly gut microbes.
White blood cells and friendly microbes…
• Make acid to kill off pathogens
• Secrete poison
• Releases free radicles
• Created hydrogen peroxide
• Create enzymes
• Compete for food/space
• Generate music and inflammation
• Have a memory so they can easily deal microbes they’ve encountered before
• Promote phagocytes, which are cells that destroy unfriendly microbes
You have things that can weaken the immune system, and you have things that can give you an immunity boost. Take a look:
Weakens the immune system:
• Low nutrient foods
• Unhealthy diets
• Low vitamins, minerals, trace minerals, amino acids, etc.
• Low sleep
Strengthens the immune system:
• Vitamin C (natural sources)
• Vitamin D
• Vitamin A
• Colloidal silver
• Olive leaf
