Supporting your Immune System

The immune system is our body's primary defense that protects us from viruses, bacteria, parasites and other harmful substances. When your immune system is suppressed, it becomes under active, which increases our chance of infection. When the immune is overactive, you may see issues like autoimmunity and allergies. 


Is your immune system so depleted that you need to focus on making it stronger and more robust? Or is your immune system in overdrive fighting something that can spark an autoimmune picture? Either way, you want to provide your body with the building blocks it needs to give off a healthy immune response under the right circumstances.


Why is the Immune System Important?

Because, you are only as healthy as your immune system! Our immune system is one of the main drivers in terms of our health. If you're struggling with immune dysfunction there are labs to test to figure out the root cause that is driving the dysfunction.


Labs I would consider: complete blood count (CBC), comprehensive metabolic panel (CMP), total immunoglobulins, inflammatory markers, GI Map, micronutrient testing and toxin panel.


*I ALWAYS start with a GI map test, because all roads lead to and from the gut and we know that the gut houses the vast majority of the immune system.


Immune Boosting Tips

First and foremost, an anti-inflammatory, nutrient-dense diet supports the immune system as a whole and improves the gut microbiome (aka the home of the immune system).
