10 tips to strengthen immunity during the cold and flu season is busy holiday season from Linda Anne Kahn, Clinical Aromatherapist.
Immunity is understood to be the protection we have against a second attack of an infectious disease. The immune system constitutes a vital protective system of the body and is responsible for getting rid of infectious pathogens.
We live in a world brimming with pollution, preservatives, pesticides and processed foods. The by-products of our unhealthy diet, lifestyle and environment can cause a toxic overload on our systems.
In addition, there is increasing stress and anxiety due to natural disasters and world events.
VIRUSES THAT ATTACK
Throughout the years we have been faced with viruses that attack and threaten our society including SARS, Asian Flu, Hong Kong Flu, Swine Flu and more.
We are facing an Immunological breakdown and the result is viral and autoimmune diseases, cancer and a malfunctioning lymphatic system.
