Are Your Asthma and Allergies Caused by A Low Immune System?

Many people who suffer from asthma and allergies don't realize it, but a low immune system is very likely at the root of their problems. Medical experts agree that a lowered or improperly functioning immune system can and does result in several diseases such as asthma, allergies, arthritis, psoriasis, lupus, chronic fatigue syndrome and cancer to name just a few.

A low immune system can be easily compromised by your environment, for example, a polluted or unclean workspace. Maintaining a clean environment is therefore important to the protection of your immune system. For those who are interested in working to prevent environmental issues that can cause asthma and other diseases you may consider obtaining a Masters in Public Health degree.

There are ways to strengthen your immune system, which will help to significantly decrease your allergy and asthma symptoms.

The body's immune systems first line of defense against disease are barriers that prevent antigens, which are large protein molecules of bacteria, viruses, chemicals and other substances that appear harmful from entering your body. The barriers include your skin, mucus, cough reflex, stomach acid and even enzymes in your tears, which destroy toxins. If the antigen or toxin manages to get past these barriers, then the immune system launches a second line of defense, found in your blood. They are white blood cells, which perform a protective function by seeking out and destroying foreign protein antigens. 

If you suffer from a low immune system it is important to avoid things that suppress or act to destroy it, such as a high cholesterol diet, heavy metals (lead, mercury, cadmium), fat, alcohol, fried foods, food additives, obesity, industrial pollutants, pesticides, herbicides, stress, prescription drugs, too much sunlight, tobacco, and radiation. Even too much sunlight will lower your immune system. Studies show that 15 minutes a day without sunscreen is benefical, after that it's best to slather on the sunblock if you are out longer.

Unfortunately, there is no "magic bullet" that you can take to quickly repair your immune system, but there are several ways to help build and support it by providing your body with proper nutrition, regular exercise, adequate rest, relaxation and maintaining a positive mental attitude.

Taking the following dietary steps will help protect and build your immune system:

1. Limit saturated and trans fats, food additives and alcohol (however olive oil is very healthy)
2. Take a good quality balanced multi-vitamin/mineral supplement daily
3. Ensure your diet includes adequate protein like fish and lean meats
4. Take 1000 mg of Vitamin C daily.
5. Eat 5 to 7 servings of vegetables and fruits daily.
6. Eat 3 to 4 servings of legumes weekly.
7. Eat 3 to 4 servings of omega-3 fatty acid-rich foods weekly

The length of time required to re-build a low immune system of course will vary depending on your individual situation and environmental exposure to immune system suppressants. This is not an overnight process, for some people it can take three months to two years. Obviously, the higher your exposure has been to immuno-suppressants, the longer it will take to build your immune system. Children tend to heal much more quickly than adults or the elderly. People with 
allergies and asthma will find that their asthma and allergy symptoms become less frequent and less severe when their immune systems are stronger. It's important to avoid using allergy and asthma drugs, which have toxic side effects that act to lower the immune system.

I personally guarantee that you really can breathe freely again. The Dramatic Asthma Relief Report, which is based on extensive medical research & proven clinical trials will positively change your life. Katie tells his story:

"I have tried so many things that were supposed to bring relief from asthma but this WORKS!!!!! How can I begin to thank you? The last several months the asthma just kept getting worse. As of a last August 15th I could no longer use steroids (to keep my breathing open), because my bone mass had dropped 30%. So it meant more time connected to a nebulizer each day. About 6 hours! Attached to a 6 foot life line. I was using 5 to 6 bottles of Ipatropium Bromide which opens the large airways, and 5 to 6 bottles of Albuterol Sulfate, which opens the small airways, each day. Many times I would wake up at 2 or 3 in the morning and have to do a breathing treatment. If it wasn't that, then first thing in the morning I would have to use 2 bottles of each medicine to get my chest opened up again. There have been days when it felt like my breathing was never right.
I was able to start on the program suggested by the research in your Asthma Relief Report at 2 PM on July 25, 2002, I used only 3 more bottles of inhalation solution during the day while the stuff built up in my system. Last night I slept so well, not fighting to breathe, and I woke up still breathing freely! This morning I took the lowered dose and spent 6 hours outdoors, it is 93 degrees and very humid and for 3 of those hours I was traveling in a van without air conditioning. Either one of the heat or the humidity would have done me in before, not to mention the pollen and mold count. But when I got in this afternoon at 2 PM I took another dose and it's still before 3 PM and I can tell the difference. This works faster than the inhalation solutions that go directly to the lungs! Plus it is all natural! Bless you for sharing your experience and research with the rest of us. Again Thank You! Katie Waters, Mansfield, Missouri
