Enhance the Health of Your Immune System
Why Boost Your Immune System
When your immune system is in an optimum condition, you probably don’t even notice it working away to protect you around the clock. However, things do become a different story when your immune system is not at an optimum – you get sick.
In today’s modern life there are many causes of immune system weakening. These weakened immune systems, which range from mild to severe, can be present from birth or may occur as a result of environmental factors. Several common factors like sleep, diet, stress, toxins, and hygiene can affect the immune system’s performance, and any offsets in these behaviors can cause havoc on immune function.
We provide a range of treatments proven to boost the function of your immune system. Your increased protection from having an optimized immune system will reduce your risk of developing sickness.
Available Immune Boosting Treatments
NK cells are important immune cells that are critical for innate immunity. They have anti-tumor, anti-viral, and immune regulatory functions. NK cells are the patrol units of the immune system, and they can respond quickly to kill diseased cells. The most common method of NK cell therapy is to obtain human peripheral blood mononuclear cells and to subject these to antibody and cytokine stimulation ex vivo, resulting in vitro NK cell activation and proliferation.
Once the cell number exceeds millions in number the cells are subject to our NK21 protocol to mature the cells. Our scientists then perform the final stages of culture in which the cytotoxic activity of the cells is greatly enhanced.
Immune Boosting Infusions
Whether you are looking for a boost to your immune system during cold and flu season, suffer from a chronic illness and need some extra support, or are looking for an easy way to enhance your energy, this IV is a great place to start.
We provide a range of immune-boosting infusions, with some of the key cellular ingredients needed for optimal cellular energy and a healthy immune system.
IV Ozone & IV Oxygen Therapy
Ozone therapy is a treatment that effectively supports a variety of health conditions by using a medical-grade mixture of oxygen and ozone generated from the high-quality ozone generators. Benefits of ozone therapy are treatments of multiple diseases, stimulates the body’s regenerative processes, boosts immunity and help slow down the deterioration of the body (Anti-aging effects). The unique properties of ozone help killing bad pathogens in our body including bacteria, virus or even some kind of fungal infection. It also cleans the blood vessels and stimulates better blood circulation.
By irradiating the blood with a selection of specific wavelengths of laser, various cellular functions can be enhanced or reduced.
These selective actions can greatly impact the health of your immune system, metabolism, and cellular energy production.
The Immune System Basics
The main purpose of your immune system is to protect your body from viruses and bacteria. Without it, they’d have free reign and you’d be constantly falling ill. Your immune system works by recognizing the difference between your body’s cells and alien cells, allowing it to destroy any that could be potentially harmful. This usually works well but can cause problems if your immune system wrongly classifies some of your own cells and attacks them instead.
A robust and properly functioning immune system helps you go about daily life as you come into contact with germs and bugs from pets, other people, and your environment. Without a healthy immune system, you could pick up infections and infectious diseases more easily, and the effects could be serious – even fatal.
Your body’s first line of defense is its physical barriers. If viruses and bacteria manage to break through, there are specialized cells that will jump into action. Your bloodstream and key areas of your body contain white blood cells that can fight and destroy the viruses and bacteria they find.
Sometimes, our immune system can overreact and even attack your body’s own cells. This is what happens in the case of allergies like hay fever and autoimmune diseases.
It’s easy to take the immune system for granted because it does such a good job of keeping us free from infection around the clock! If you’ve got a healthy immune system, look after it and it will look after you.
There are several components to the immune system. Some you will have heard of before but others are more obscure. Here is a brief summary of the different parts and the important roles they play in keeping your body protected:
The skin is a physical barrier that keeps bacteria and germs at bay. Tears and saliva offer further protection as they’re anti-bacterial so they can neutralize any invaders.
Anti-bacterial, sticky mucus lines your lungs and this catches germs and stops them from entering your bloodstream. Mucus is also found in your nasal passage and works in the same way.
Around seventy to eighty percent of your immune system cells are found in your gut. It’s often a place where bacteria and viruses attack so it’s important that your gut is in good condition and has plenty of friendly bacteria at its disposal.
Your lymph system carries water, food, and oxygen to your cells and removes waste. It is made up of your bone marrow, spleen, thymus and lymph nodes.
In your bone marrow, your body’s disease-fighting white blood cells are produced and released. There are many different kinds of leukocytes (white blood cells) but they all produce antibodies to fight off specific bacteria and viruses. The main three types are granulocytes, lymphocytes (T-cells and B-cells) and monocytes.
Your spleen regulates how much blood is in your body and removes damaged cells. The thymus gland is where bacteria-fighting T-cells mature. It’s located behind your breastbone and in the front part of your chest. It’s a vital part of a child’s immune system but is less important in adults. Lymph nodes are designed to detect any bacteria or infection in cell fluid and remove them. This can cause them to swell temporarily.
It’s vital that your immune system is in good working order if you want to stay as protected as possible. There are several ways you can do this. You can cut down on the amount of alcohol you drink, start exercising regularly if you don’t already and try to reduce your stress levels. If you live a hectic life, simply learning to slow down and rest occasionally can have a big impact.
Diet has an important part to play and if you can, you should try to eat some immune-boosting fruits and vegetables every day. You can take them in liquid form by making juices and smoothies if you’ll find this easier.
