Today I want to write about some habits that can make the immune system shut down, so if you follow some advice  in  day to day’s lifestyle, your body will thank you.

1.  Junk the Junk Food —Experts have shown when a person is malnourished the immune system is weakened, when you restore the person to normal nutrition, immune system improves. But when they  are continuing to improve nutrition beyond mere adequacy, the immune system continues to improve even in healthy people.Junk food includes excess fats(Polyunsaturated), excess sugar. Sugar inhibits phagocytosis by which the virus and bacteria are engulfed and literally chewed up by the white blood cells.

2. Dodge the PCB’s— It takes just one exposure of less than 1 millionth of a gram for immunotoxic contaminants such as Polychlorinated Biphenyls(PCB),mercury, certain pesticides. Reduce the smoking, limit alcohol, stop taking illicit drugs.  Buy organic produce, rinse fruits and vegetables thoroughly to remove pesticides.Choose cleansers, paper goods that are made with less toxic mate.

3. Avoid Sleep Deprivation — It has a powerful detrimental effect on immune system. Poor sleep is associated with our immune system function and reduced numbers of killer cells that fight germs.

4. Release yourself from Stress Trap — Stress is an immune buster. Period of extreme stress can result in lower natural killer cell count “”Killet T”” cells and  diminish macrophage activity that can amplify the immune response.
