Immune System

Boosting immune system with natural methods offers many health benefits

A strong immune system is essential when it comes to maintaining optimal health. When it's compromised, the body's ability to heal takes a hit. New complications can arise and existing ones can be magnified. In fact, when it comes to cancers, Prof. Martin Rocken, Director of the Department of Dermatology of the University Medical Center Tubingen, notes that "the immune system is able to drive tumors and tumor cells into a form of permanent dormancy."

Chemotherapy-free cancer treatment uses body's own immune system to attack diseased cells

A revolutionary breakthrough in cancer treatment that is being described as a "game-changer" would see the body's own immune system utilized to attack diseased cells, rather than rely on sickening chemotherapy, researchers announced lately

Scientists develop breakthrough treatment in children with peanut allergies

If the peanut allergy epidemic is man-made, can it be undone? What if the vaccine industry took peanut oil out of all vaccines, would the allergy statistics plummet? How is it that so many people want to justify a high chance of getting a serious food allergy, which has deadly risk factors in and of itself, with a possibly reduced risk of getting, say, the mumps or measles? Take a big guess at the average number of vaccines that U.S. children get before age seven.

How a fever benefits your health

Most of our society lives with the idea that health is a state of "feeling good" and "not being sick or diseased." We fear contact with bacteria, viruses and other microorganisms. We use antibacterial soap, sprays, pills, potions and lotions. We are constantly "gearing up" for the next big flu pandemic, etc.

Seven ways to bulletproof your immune system this winter

The immune system is where the rubber meets the road, and if you fail to get it in order, your health goes downhill. Start building your immune system by incorporating these seven things to help get you through the winter without wearing a surgical mask on a daily basis.

Chronic stress depletes your immune system

Many experts have hypothesized that increased stress cycles in the body produce the environment for disease development within the body. Stress can come from a variety of sources in the mental/emotional form, chemical nature and physical realm. When the body is under increased stress, it responds by increasing its sympathetic tone. This means the body shunts itself into "fight or flight" survival-based mode by altering cardiovascular & hormonal function to get itself ready for dynamic activity.

Stress, Cancer and Sexuality

Anything that compromises your immune system dramatically reduces your chances for long term survival. It's understandable that sexuality may not be the primary focus for most cancer patients, at least not right away. But at some point, whether because of sexual changes, relationship issues, or difficulties with fertility, patients realize the impact of cancer on their sexuality. What is not realized is how dysfunctions in our sexualities causes cancer. What we do about our sexualities has a great bearing on whether we recover from cancer or not because sexual stress does cause cancer and does reduce immune system strength.

Exercise Helps Your Immune System Protect Against Future Cancers

If you are like most people, when you think of reducing your risk of cancer, exercise probably isn't at the top of your list. However, there is compelling evidence that exercise can not only help slash your risk of cancer, but can also help cancer patients get well sooner, and help prevent cancer recurrence.

Mechanisms for vitamin D, curcumin in Alzheimer's disease identified

Writing in the March 6, 2012 issue of the Journal of Alzheimer's Disease, researchers at the University of California and the Scripps Institute elucidate mechanisms for vitamin D and a synthetic form of curcumin in clearing the brain of amyloid beta, a toxic protein that forms the plaques that are believed to be a major cause of the neurodegeneration that occurs in Alzheimer's disease.
