We are coming to the time of the year when colds and flu often attack our bodies. Research has determined this is usually a result of immune system breakdown. We get sick when the body lacks the proper nutrients to sustain a strong healthy system.
Specific factors affecting the immune system are nutritional deficiencies, infections, trauma, toxins, constant stress and sleep deprivation
According to Diwakar Balachandran MD, Director of the Sleep Center at the University of Texas; lack of sleep may actually make us more prone to catching colds and the flu. Experimental studies have shown sleep deprivation suppresses the immune system resulting in illness and disease.
It was Hippocrates (The Father of Medicine) who said, “Let food be your medicine.” A healthy diet should be part of any wellness program.
Any nutrient deficiency suppresses immune function, as does an excess consumption of sugar and refined foods. Research shows clearly that the type of bacteria residing in our GI tract affects our health and digestive system, important for overall health and well-being.
Although diet is the foundation for good health; supplements can be of benefit as well. Wheatgrass is an effective supplement for reducing stress, inflammation, detoxification of the body, aiding in sleep, and strengthening your immune system.
