Top 4 Things Weakening Your Immune System: "Doc Talks" with Dr. Nuzum
Jonathan Hunsaker: Curious about the top four things that are weakening your immune system? Stay tuned to get the answer.
Jonathan Hunsaker here with Organixx, once again. Today we’re talking about your immune system, and we’re talking specifically about the things that are damaging your immune system or weakening your immune system.
If you find yourself getting sick a little more than you used to, if you find yourself just feeling under the weather, don’t have the same amount of energy that you used to, it’s likely because you have a weakened immune system. And there are things that you may be doing in your day-to-day life that are compromising your immune system.
So, let’s go to Doc right now to find the top four things that are weakening our immune system.
Dr. Daniel Nuzum: With the immune system, what causes immunologic dysfunction?
And that goes back to, number one, faulty nutrition. When we have a faulty diet, we get dysbiosis. We’ve talked about dysbiosis in quite a few of our other videos. Dysbiosis is an imbalance in the microbiome. The microbiome is that sleeve or coating of probiotics in your gut. And when you get dysbiosis, you get this imbalance. You don’t have as many probiotics in there as you should. A bad diet creates dysbiosis.
Number two, toxicity. Have you been exposed to heavy metals? Have you been exposed to mold? Have you been exposed to industrial toxins of some sort? How fluorinated and chlorinated is the water you’ve been drinking?
So, we’ve got nutritional deficiencies, we’ve got toxicity, we have chronic infection is the next.
When a microorganism enters the body, and the immune system is in a weak state, that microorganism gets a foothold on your system. And it can stay there for forever. It only hurts you a little bit and keeps hurting you a little bit and a little bit, little bit, and you don’t die from it. We call that a chronic infection, but it causes damage every day, day in, day out, 24/7. What happens is the immune system gets exhausted.
We have one more major factor, and that’s trauma, and it can be any kind of trauma. It can be you got hit by a car trauma; it could be you had a divorce trauma. From an immunologic standpoint, your body has the same response to any kind of trauma, regardless of the source.
So, we have these four different pathways that cause immune dysfunction in our system. So, what do we do about all this? You say “Doc, oh my gosh, what do we do?”
Number one, we have to fix your nutrition. We have to supply all the nutrients your body needs in order to maintain itself. And if you’ve been deficient for a long time, you’re going to have to consume more than just the regular amount in order to fill all those holes.
Number two, detoxify. We have to cleanse the system. If waste accumulates in your body, that’s like slivers accumulating in the bottom of your foot.
Fill in the blanks with the nutrition; we’ve got to remove the waste from the system with detoxification, then we need to colonize the body with probiotics.
This is how we offset the chronic infections. As we colonize the body with probiotics, you only have X amount of space in your system. So, if you fill that space up with the good guys, there’s no space for the bad guys.
Our last thing is trauma here. Learning how to handle stress, learning how to let go of the past, learning how to just move forward. Those are all things that we have to do to help our immune system. These are things we have to teach patients that have severely compromised immune systems.
So, I hope this answered the question of “How do we heal the immune system?”
Jonathan Hunsaker: Thanks, Doc. Love all the information you’re sharing. The takeaway to this video: the four things – bad nutrition, toxicity, chronic infection, and trauma. Those are the things that we really want to focus on if we want to boost our immune system, or at least prevent ourselves from weakening our immune system.
And I promise you, with a strong immune system, you’re going to have more energy, you’re going to feel better, you’re going to fight off all those little colds and sniffles and things that come along.
