The basics of a weak immune system
A weak immune system is actually a dysfunction of the organs that are involved in immunity. 80% of these organs are in the abdomen. If you want to correct a defunct or weak immune system, you have to correct the organs and systems in the abdomen. They are the intestines, the Lymphatics (sewer system) and the friendly bacteria or “microbiota”.
What causes a weak immune system?
There are a number of factors that weaken the body’s immune system. The most common cause is poor food and drink choices. Other common causes include overuse of antibiotics, vaccinations, NSAID pain medications, poor air and water quality, stress, toxicity of heavy metals or chemicals, surgeries, and radiation. At the NHCAA, we look for the cause of the problem so we can bring the body back into balance and proper function. Rehabilitating the gut, where the immune system is centered is a step by step process. Once we identify the source, we can start giving the body the tools it needs to be healthy.
