According to Traditional Chinese Medicine immune disease is when the immune system is so compromised that it attacks the healthy tissues of the body. This can be caused by lack of sleep, the regular intake of drugs, excessive work, or poor dietary habits.
Toxins build up within the cells of the body which compromise the liver and spleen. These are blood cleansing organs so are unable to do their job efficiently. One thought is that the toxic cells are attacked as foreign substances by the immune cells. This in turn causes the body's defenses to break down.
It is recommended to eat a diet rich in whole grains and vegetables.
It is best to moderate or avoid meats, dairy products, alcohol, refined foods, chemicalized foods, drugs, and poor quality oils and fats.
It is important to create a balanced lifestyle with plenty of rest, work, and play.
Yoga and meditation are helpful practices for immune health.
Tumeric is a good herb to use for immune strength.
I hope this is helpful. Feel free to talk to me personally for any support you may need.
One of my client's said that so many people think it is normal to not feel well. If you don't feel well there is excess somewhere in your life that needs to be addressed. Optimal health is a given that we are all capable of having. Health, and Happiness to All! Debra
