Tips To Boost Your Bodys Defense

With every change in season, we suffer from different diseases. Though we blame it on weather change, actually it is our weakened immune system to be blamed. Our immune system is our body’s defense mechanism that protects us against infections caused by pathogens. When it becomes weak, it is unable to protect us and we fall prey to various diseases.

But there is a way out. Along with proper nutrition and supplementation, new research indicates your mental state can have a major effect on your immune system functioning. White blood cells are produced depending on a negative feedback mechanism, implying your body has a normal level of white blood cells (WBCs). If your WBC count increases or decreases from this level your body adjusts the production accordingly.

If you fall ill frequently, your body may be used to below average WBC count. This can be connected directly to an imbalance in neurotransmitters, certain brain chemicals that control all metabolic function. Neurotransmitters can lose balance if your diet is unhealthy and you indulge in wrong emotions. Feelings such as anxiety, fear, anger, and worry affect your neurotransmitter production and make you more prone to sickness. If you are constantly worrying about getting sick, you are more likely to fall sick, although you have followed the necessary precautions.

The best way to balance neurotransmitter production is to get up between 3-6 am and do either exercise, yoga, or meditation. During this period the brain switches over from being controlled by melatonin that controls sleep patterns, to nor ephedrine, serotonin, and dopamine that controls all body functions. It is more powerful than any anti-depressant and will greatly benefit your immune system.

Another most powerful method is healthy diet and lifestyle. A well balanced diet containing all-important food groups and 6 tastes: sweet, sour, salt, pungent, bitter, and astringent should be consumed. Take a quality supplement like Pharmanex LifePak nano, using nano technology to provide you essential nutrients in case of immune deficiency.
