Part 5 of the Series: Aging and the "Pauses of Life"
Immunopause - When you can't fight infections
Do you remember childhood as one long string of good health, yet your adult
life is one sinus infection after another? With every hormone loss or brain
chemical imbalance, our immune code is broken. As early as the beginning of
puberty, our immune response slowly begins to decline, which in turn causes
us to get sick easier.
Our immune system provides a layer of protection that keeps viruses and
infections from harming the brain and the body. When you
your immune system cannot protect you from the constant attack of viruses
and infections that surround you. As adults, we experience the switching off
of the immune system as increased inflammation, which plays a role in
every medical condition from heart disease to ermatitis. Serotonin regulates
the immune system, and serotonin agents can boost immunity. As
inflammation increases, serotonin levels decrease, creating both low- and
high-grade fevers as well as sleep abnormalities. Inflammation acts as the
immunopause death code, allowing viruses, fungus, and bacteria into every
organ of the body.
Meanwhile, aging can be summarized as oxidation - you are literally burning
up, including your dopamine. You need this vital biochemical to suppress
illness. For example, that's why adrenaline (dopamine family of brain
chemicals) is used as an antidote to an allergic reation, such as to a bee
Infections are Alien Invaders
Infections can grow and develop inside the body when the immune system
is asleep at the wheel. Tiny microorganisms are let in through the various
orifices and work their way into your cells, wreaking havoc along the way.
Infections can contribute to further inflammation, and more dangerously,
like in the case of AIDS, can destroy your immune system.
Infections that occur in the body can affect our brain. For example, the
common flu contributes to Parkinson's disease. When your immune system
is compromised, your dopamine level is diminished. That is why Parkinson's
drugs, which build dopamine, can help to alleviate flu symptoms.
Infections can occur anywhere in the brain and the body, sending their own
aging code and jump-starting the pauses such as:
•Sexually transmitted infections
•Infections of the brain, spinal cord, nerves, bones, and muscles
•Bacterial skin infections
•Fungal skin infections
•Viral skin infections
Take Action: Strengthen Your Immune System and Get Younger
It's relatively easy to boost your immunity. A multi-modal approach including
medications, hormones, supplements and specific dietary suggestions will
help you break immunopause. I've included a list of nutrients that will help
break the immunopause code. Consider these natural treatments, and
consider making an appointment to have a full body check-up. Early detection
is your best bet in fully recovering from immune diseases - including
cancer. PLEASE CONSULT with your doctor before beginning any new protocol.
