Human beings are born with the power to resist disease. A properly functioning immune system is the best defence not only against common colds and viruses but also against threats such as cancer. Then what is it that results in declining function of the immune system?
A number of things are responsible for low immunity and the common ones include a poor diet and eating habits, too much of refined sugar and excess of alcohol. Lack of exercise, sedentary lifestyle along with constant exposure to stress and environmental pollution is another feature that is not uncommon these days. Another one to be blamed is lack of sleep – as our lives turn more and more hectic, quality sleep is something that is easiest to compromise and this can have drastic results in the long term. Chemicals, drugs, toxins – they are all there around us and the effects too are there for us to see. No wonder then that bacteria, viruses, fungi all get to thrive so easily in our deprived body systems.
All of the above reasons largely result in increasing free radicals in the body. The free radicals cause much damage to the immune system and lower your resistance to infections. This sets off the trail for a host of problems such as frequent colds, recurring fever, premature graying and balding, early onset of menopause, degeneration of the arteries, cancer, etc.
How do we get things back in line? All you need to do is get your immune system switched back on and sufficiently strengthened. That is where the value of proper nutrition and lifestyle modification comes into picture – a package you won’t get anywhere else except at Health Total.
