How to protect the immune system?

Protecting the immune system is the easiest and most challenging thing to do at the same time. 

The easiest thing to do because, in reality, our immune system doesn’t need to be protected.  

The most challenging thing to do because it is hard to avoid all the sources of pollution and aggression against him.


Nature has made humans beautiful and well equipped for living their full potential. Sadly humans have made a great effort to harm themselves in all kinds of ways.


Among the many sources of pollution of our immune system, the main ones are:

  • Chemicals and synthetics (found everywhere)
  • Fine particles from industrial pollution and traffic
  • Chemical drugs
  • Junk food, GMOs and toxic products used in agriculture
  • Vaccines
  • Drugs (tobacco, alcohol, and other harmful substances)
  • All other carcinogens and endocrine disruptors that we breathe, touch and eat


Among the many sources of aggression of our immune system, the main ones are:

  • Tiredness
  • The noise
  • Lack of sleep
  • The stress
  • Lack of essential nutrients
  • Lack of clean water, clean air, sun, etc.

Bad habits

In addition to being polluted and assaulted, our immune system also suffers from our attitude towards everyday injuries and infectious diseases.

Here are two examples:

  • Regular intake of medicines such as antihistamines (allergy medicines). They block histamine, a cytokine important for the proper functioning of nonspecific defenses and inflammation.
  • Taking non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs without a prior diagnosis, i.e., all drugs with anti-inflammatory action other than cortisone. In an infectious state, they prevent inflammation, which is an essential part of the immune response.

It is often forgotten that most of the population takes these drugs very regularly for anything and everything. In consequence, the side effects of these drugs are often underestimated.
