What Exactly is The Immune System?
Your immune system is a complex apparatus that battles viruses, germs, and fungus from invading your body. This mechanism has the ability to eliminate cancer cells. Several actors are involved in this work: white cells, which are defense cells of various types that circulate in the blood; cells with defensive capacity that are in the tissues and do not circulate; and substances or biochemical mediators, which are used directly against invaders or as warning and control messages.
In other words, we have a highly specialized army that employs a wide range of weaponry as well as a sophisticated reconnaissance, identification, and extermination system, all while being managed by a highly accurate information system.
Can this system be improved? It is not required to improve such a developed, complicated, tremendously effective, and comprehensive defense system. What we should do is let our immune system function normally without getting in the way.
Protecting Your System > Improving Your System
It is not required to improve such a developed, complicated, tremendously effective, and comprehensive defense system. What we should do is let our immune system function normally without getting in the way.
We can do this by distracting the defense system as little as possible. Consider the ambulances that respond to crises. If they begin to get more bogus calls on a particular day, it is evident that the system will begin to fail in its goal of properly responding to crises.
Similarly, the stress response created in reaction to events that we perceive to be harmful, whatever they may be, works to arouse alerts throughout the body and prioritize processes that allow for immediate physical defense in order to have alternatives to overcome or flee from danger. Keeping the body on constant alert depletes and distracts the immune defense system. But what if our alarm systems are set off by mortgage payments, my neighbor's attitude, or simply viewing the red news?
The solution is to persuade our bodies that everything is alright by using our senses to send a message to lessen the alert. The senses are used to produce these comforting signals. The five senses were designed with this goal in mind: to inform the body. They all serve a purpose.
Employing Your Senses to Serve Your System
Everything we see must be viewed in the context of a harmonious landscape. Nature's blue and green colours are quite soothing, and if you can't go for a stroll, consider looking at landscape images.
You must enjoy the fragrances and aromas that we like the most. Those are the ones that are effective, and we may test them while resting or relaxing.
Use the sense of touch by taking a hot shower and enjoying the fall of water, resting in a bathtub, strolling on the warm floor, or getting a body massage.
For taste, we can experiment with various fruits, veggies, and nuts. We want to convey to the body that there is both diversity and sufficiency. Trying different scents of tea works extremely well.
The ear is not as demanding. Nature sounds, such as pouring water, birds, or low frequencies obtained just by browsing the internet, will do the job. Along with that, listening to instrumental music that calms our body down is beneficial in relaxing the body after a long day.
Below are some general tips that use two or more of the senses. Take deep breaths while going outside, and dance to music that you enjoy and that thrills you. Remember that sensory stimulation should be done every day for at least 15 minutes and on a consistent basis.
