A Healthy Immune System
Did you know that there’s a link between depression and the immune system? In fact, a number of symptoms like high blood pressure, insomnia, anxiety, bowel issues, fatigue, allergies and many other problems can be rooted back to an imbalance of your immune system. If you think you’re suffering from immune system problems, MD Wellness is an immune system specialist that can help.
Immune System Problems
Your immune system, your hormones and your autonomic nervous system all work together to maintain balance in your body. This balance is referred to as homeostasis. Your body is always trying to maintain homeostasis (balance) despite being exposed to variations in your external in internal environment. An example of this is when you go out in the cold, you may start shivering. This is your body’s way of increasing your temperature. On the other hand, if it is too hot, you may start sweating. The act of sweating causes you to lower your body temperature. So you can see that your body has a built in “thermostat” to maintain body temperature. This is a very simple example of homeostatic control.
Since your immune system, nervous system and hormones all work together to maintain homeostasis, stress on any one system will affect the other systems as well. Excessive stress can lead to disturbances in your body’s immune system and when there’s an imbalance or malfunction, you may require treatment for immune system problems.
Some people have very sensitive immune systems that can overreact to internal and external stimuli. This is one of the more common immune system problems, known as “autoimmune disease”. If you suffer from autoimmune disease, your immune system can actually start to attack your own cells, tissues and organs leading to autoimmune symptoms.
One of the most common causes of “autoimmune disease” is exposure to the environment of a water damaged building (WDB), caused by mold and other toxic substances.
