Immune System Challenge
Somewhere in the back of my mind I kind of remember a song, What Are You Doing For the Rest of Your Life? that was popular back in the day. I only remember the title, though, not the song.
Maybe you’re wondering how you’ll fill all the days of your life. Well, how about researching the immune system? Understanding this ultra-complicated system will keep you busy, busy, busy for at least the rest of your life. As a bonus, you could help a lot of people.
Medicine thinks the immune was designed to waste away and leave you defenseless, so they don’t have much interest in encouraging it to get all buff and brawny.
Strong immune system
Besides, a strong immune system would kill the market for their huge money-maker, vaccines. Then where would they be?
And what about that big, life-ending pot o’ gold, cancer? It would cease to be a common menace and become rare. Obviously, medicine has no motivation to reverse the current belief that our immune system was meant to shrivel to a “just a few cells,” unable to fight back.
We should all learn more about the immune system. A lot more. Of course, you get to make your own choices, so I guess it’s up to you whether to take on the challenge or not. But I’m definitely in.
In fact, I’m crowding myself out of house and home with years’ worth of research papers I found online. (I print everything out. That way it can’t disappear to a place where I can no longer access it, a lesson I learned the hard way.)
Books about the care-and-feeding of the immune system are starting to show up, too.
All the answers
You’d think with all the information available, we’d know all the answers, but no. There are many blank spots and contradictions awaiting new light. A whole lot of new light. Which probably won’t be well-received by medical poobahs.
If you decide to jump in, let me warn about a common disappointment: You’ll read what claims to be the final answer to a long-standing puzzle, only to find there are several more “final answers,” each one contradicting all the others. Confusion is different from light, so these are more areas needing attention.
I have a friend who works with the body’s electrical frequencies, and that would be one good place for me to look for more information. Getting rid of short-circuits and other electrical problems would help the body as much, perhaps even more, than fixing electrical problems in the house, car, etc. I understand parts of it; learning more about “the body electric” can only help.
Be good to your immune system
All that said, whether you decide to join the research brigade or not, at least be good to your immune system. Using the information in my earlier articles about the immune system, you should:
• Avoid vaccines; they see your immune system as a target.
• Avoid soy-and any other source of estrogen. And soy’s double-trouble because besides making your estrogen act dangerously wild and crazy, it also whacks your hypothalamus, which then drags down the other glands in the endocrine system, including, of course, your immune system. No soy for you!
• Avoid fluoride. Don’t drink, cook with, or bathe in fluoridated water. And avoid all other sources of fluoride-toothpaste, antidepressants, antibiotics-and other places you’d never expect.
• Move your muscles regularly. You don’t have to hike up the Matterhorn; you just need to move your muscles throughout the day. This will cheer up your immune system more than you can imagine.
There are more ways to bless your immune system, of course, but these will let your body know you’re on the same team.
God is good,
