Natural immune modulators may provide a key to beating immune disorders

 

by Tony Isaacs

(The Best Years in Life) The immune system is normally our natural first line of defense against illness and bad health. However, sometimes immune systems function abnormally due to deficiencies and disorders where the body either loses its natural immunity or else the immune system turns against the body it is supposed to protect. In either case, natural immune modulators may provide the key to maintaining a strong and properly functioning immune system.

Immunodeficiency (or immune deficiency) is a state in which the immune system's ability to fight infectious disease is compromised or entirely absent. There are more than 80 different immune-deficiency syndromes, including the most common and well-known immune deficiency, AIDS (Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome).

Mainstream medicine has little understanding and no cure for immunodeficiency and often attempts to manage it through long-term antibiotics. Antibiotics often have dangerous side effects. In addition, long term use of antibiotics destroys the body’s beneficial intestinal bacteria which leads to bacterial overgrowth, lowered digestion and absorption of nutrients and ultimately even lower natural immune function.

Autoimmune disorder is a condition that occurs when the immune system mistakenly attacks and destroys healthy body tissue due to an inability to distinguish between healthy body tissue and antigens (such as microbial pathogens). The result is an immune response that destroys normal body tissues.

As is the case with immunodeficiencies, mainstream medicine is lacking in understanding and no cures for autoimmune disorders. In most instances, mainstream medicine employs unnatural immunosuppressive drugs to reduce the immune systems response. Besides a number of dangerous side effects such drugs often cause, they also reduce the body’s natural immune response to actual illness.

Nature may provide a key for controlling and beating immune disorders in the form of natural immune modulators. Immune modulators can either up-regulate or down-regulate natural immune response as needed, enabling people with immune disorders to have more normalized immune function without the side effects of unnatural medications.

Five powerful natural immune modulators are:

Magnesium

Magnesium is a powerful and essential immune modulator. Known as the “master mineral”, magnesium is involved in no fewer than 300 body processes. A deficiency in magnesium has been strongly linked to immune disorders and it has been variously estimated that anywhere from 70 to 95 percent of us are deficient in magnesium.

Vitamin D3

Vitamin D3, known as the “sunshine vitamin”, is essential to life itself. Several studies in recent years have indicated that vitamin D3 is a powerful immune modulator which could be useful against autoimmune disorders. Furthermore, like magnesium, deficiency in D3 has been linked to autoimmune disorders. The best source of D3 is sunshine. When that is not feasible, supplemental D3 can help.

Curcumin

Curcumin is the major component of the common kitchen spice "turmeric". It is a wonderful herb which has anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer properties and it has been shown to inhibit autoimmune disorders. Note: curcumin is ordinarily not very bio-available. Consuming piperine (black pepper) and/or coconut milk may improve absorption somewhat, but the best therapeutic value may be found in curcumin supplements designed for high bio-availability.

Blackseed oil

Blackseed oil (Nigella sativa) is another powerful immunomodulator and it has been used for centuries for a wide variety of illnesses. The prophet Muhammad was reported to have said that blackseed is a "cure for everything but death”.

Oleander extract

Oleander is noted as a supreme immune stimulator and its success against cancer, HIV and other conditions. However, it appears that oleander is also a powerful immune-modulator, with many reports of it helping people with immune disorders. Note: only properly prepared non-toxic supplemental oleander extract should be used since the raw plant is quite toxic.
