Vaccines and Immunoglobulins :

Vaccines and Immunoglobulins boost our Immune system. During the present Covid - 19 pandemic, extensive research is going on in many nations world-wide to come up with vaccines which will prevent the intensity of spread of Corona Virus.Today I have received a shot of Covid Vaccine by name of Covishield which is being manufactured in India.

I have also received earlier from time to time, an immunity booster protein by the name of Bharglobe. This injection contains Immunoglobulins which are ready made antibodies against acute viral and bacterial infections.

Naturally occurring Immunity Boosters :

We have Natural Immunity boosters in the form of Fruits and fresh Fruit - juices.

Our body too has a Natural defense system which helps us fight against the invading viruses and bacteria which cause disease. The defense system comprises of spleen, lymph nodes, and white blood cells, also called as T cells. Do you want to increase your defense against diseases? Try out some Easy Immune Boosters.

Sneezing :

Sneezing releazes Infective bacteria and viruses in the atmosphere :

If you are in a crowded place and someone with flu sneezes in your direction, right away germ-fighting substances in your skin and mucous membranes in your nose and mouth start working to prevent the virus from further invading your body. If these defences fail to stop the virus, then the virus will go further into the body. There it begins to reproduce itself by multiplying in number.


Body's Defense System :

Now, the body’s defense system comes into action. The spleen and lymph nodes filter out the virus and call for help. White blood cells, or soldiers of the body, also called as the T cells, come and kill the virus if it can. The B cells secrete antibodies, also known as immunoglobulins, come in to action and bind to and destroy the intruders. If you had taken the vaccine for flu, your B cells would already recognize and kill the virus.

Sleep Heals and Boosts Immunity .....

These simple tricks boost the body's immunity :

Here are some simple tricks to boost up your immune system and increase its capacity to fight disease:

  1. Get lots of sleep. Sleep regenerates and stimulates the body’s immune system. Get 6-8 hours of shut eye to reduce your chances of getting ill.
  2. Chat with a friend. This will nurture positive emotions. Laughing and relaxing reduces stress and the levels of cortisol in the body which suppresses the immune system. Its reduction prevents the suppression of immune system.
  3. Eat Liver and Onions. Liver contains high amounts of selenium, zinc, magnesium, iron, copper, folic acid and vitamins B-6 and B-12. These boost immune system.
  4. Solve a crossword puzzle to relax. Stimulating the brain regions that store memory and judgement elevate the level of T cells.
  5. Make love to fight the bugs. Persons who have sex once or twice a week have higher levels of disease-fighting-antibodies secreted by B cells.
  6. Get lots of sleep. Sleep regenerates and stimulates the body’s immune system. Get 6-8 hours of shut eye to reduce your chances of getting ill.
  7. Take care of your belly. Alcohol, poor diet, and stress can change the intestinal flora. We have good bacteria in our digestive tract which have a bug-fighting capability. You can replenish these friendly bacteria by consuming curds and yeast.
  8. Take plenty of water, not soft drinks. Water keeps germ-fighting mucous membranes moist and functional.
  9. Watch funny channels on TV. Laughter boosts the immune system by suppressing cortisol levels in the body which inhibits the immune system.
  10. Walking boosts immune system. Walk for 45 minutes a day, five days a week. This will reduce your risk of illness by half.
  11. Remain in shade. The sun’s UV rays can reduce immunity by depleting T cells and immunity boosting skin cells.
  12. Go for seafood. It contains zinc, iron, selenium, copper, and magnesium that are good for your immune system.
  13. Go for a massage. Certain massage treatments stimulate lymph vessels, the immune circulatory system.
  14. Pray daily or meditate daily. This reduces stress and helps you get well soon when you’re ill.

Hi, asianlight. Have you tried homeopathy for chronic allergies? Thanks for stopping by.

aslanlight from England on September 12, 2009:

This is one of the most concise and clear articles I've read on the immune system! I wonder if you can help me. My immune system seems to be overactive, I have allergies and ME/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. My skin itches and I require prescribed antihistamines.

Seeing as my immune system is clearly working too much it can't be low so why are immunity boosting herbs and foods good for me? Do they help with its communication or something else?

TheLesleyShow from US on April 29, 2009:

Excellent advice, especially the praying/meditating. Now I don't even think it matters which religion it is, Every one likes to tell people it is the one truth, but I think there are many paths to God and God wants us to be healthy too.

I don't like to burn in the sun but I like to get some sun on my skin too for vitamin D reasons and also sun can help cure scars if you are careful not to take too much.

Kari Poulsen from Ohio on April 04, 2009:

I love your advice! (well, maybe not the liver and onions) It's great to know I have an additional reason to do the things I like.

BkCreative from Brooklyn, New York City on April 04, 2009:

Nice to know just how well our bodies work - provided that we take good care of it. So thanks for both - the how it works and those great and really easy suggestions on how to take care of it.

I'm always happy to read your informative hubs and share them with friends.

Many many thanks!
