Need a “go to immune boost” when you start to feel sick? Want to avoid the colds your kids and coworkers are spreading? Give us a call, text or email, we offer a free link for common cold support for you and children age 2 and up. Blocking viral replication and boosting immune function can shorten duration and severity of colds and infections.
As our body responds to stress we tax our adrenals, and become fatigued. The more worn down we become the less our body is able to fight off common or uncommon infections. With a compromised immune system we start to get sick more frequently. Sometimes our body produces and overreaction and attacks itself. This happens in Autoimmune diseases such as: Hashimoto’s, IBS (irritable bowel syndrome), lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, fibromyalgia, scleroderma, Sjogren’s and more. Other times we are so worn down, we reactivate infections like Epstein-Barr (mononucleosis). While our immune system is constantly keeping viruses in check, when it is inundated with working against pathogens, viruses that have been dormant can reactivate.
Treatment for these vary widely, but all of them require strong adrenal, clean gut and immune support. Hormone function may also be compromised and must be factored into a patients wellness plan as well. For example, in Hashimoto’s, our body makes antibodies to attack our thyroid. We don’t know why this happens, but it does and more frequently in women. There is a link between high cortisol(our stress hormone), estrogen, progesterone, testosterone and our thyroid function, or lack of function. If you would like help with your immune function or autoimmune management, please reach out to us here at WPC, we will help you navigate this difficult journey.
