Immune System

The immune system plays a central role in our health. It not only defends against bacteria, viruses or fungi, but also controls "inwards," such as in the destruction of cancer cells, which occur daily in our body, or in the removal of age-altered cells.

The development of allergies can be directly linked to the state of the immune system. In contrast to a weak immune system, allergies provoke an overreaction in the immune system. Only when the immune system is balanced can a person be healthy.

The state of our immune system dictates whether we stay healthy or become ill. It is influenced and damaged by a variety of factors, such as psychological stress, environmental toxins, lack of exercise, medication, and body toxins, which are mainly caused by poor nutrition.

Emotions play an important role. Psychological stress has a negative effect not only hormone production but also directly on the immune system.
