Before focusing on building the immune system, it becomes necessary to look at what is causing the problem in the first place. Let's take a look at what can affect the immune system.

Foods Consumed:

What goes into the body has monumental implications both positive and negative. The analogy of a car is excellent, visualize a race-car equipped with the highest grade fuel, best synthetic oil and top quality parts. The car is going to perform on all cylinders have longer life and be able to take a little bit of a beating. Now, if using the same car and you substitute with low quality fuel, oil, and bargain bin parts and try to perform like the first car, significant problems will arise. The same applies to the body.

Many people may turn their nose or foo-foo at this concept, but it is at the core of creating ultimate immunity. If someone feels stressed, depressed or has a negative Nancy approach, this can be correlated with a weak immune system. In some cases, one may see this as their biggest challenge but altering the thought pattern can drastically influence the immune system.
