Are you the type of person who catches every bug going around? Or are you someone who never seems to suffer a sniffle? The difference likely lies in how well your immune system functions. Creating optimal immunity can protect you from a variety of viruses and bacteria each and every day. But, contrary to popular belief, an immune system that operates at full power 365 days a year isn’t necessarily ideal. What really matters is balanced immunity to ensure that your immune system provides the right response at the right time to pathogens and other threats. A balanced immune response has never been more critical to good health.Along with the common cold or the flu, old viruses like the measles are re-emerging. New viruses like severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) and West Nile virus are also making themselves known throughout the world thanks largely to the speed in which viruses can travel around the globe. Drug- resistant bacteria are also flourishing with outbreaks of community-acquired methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) in hospitals across America, or Legionnaire’s disease popping up in hotels, hospitals, and even whole neighborhoods.Your immune system also dictates the amount of inflammation expression in your body.That fact alone has a big impact on your rate of aging and has been associated with the development of many chronic illnesses. This booklet will give you practical ways to enhance a healthy and balanced immune response–from what you eat, to how you move, to the supplements you take. If you’re ready to build a balanced immune system, turn the page to take the first step toward a healthier future.
