The heat finally arrived in Southern California after having another extremely mild summer, and overnight, we’ve landed into fall. We are so blessed to have such moderate temperatures all year. Yet, those who experience a “cold” with the change of each season, might be immunity challenged. Since our gastrointestinal tracts are so closely connected to our immune systems, what better support can your immune system get than support at your core.
Take a look at this picture of your lympathic system. See all the lymph nodes in the core? They lie right behind your intestinal tract. This is why you will hear holistic docs talk about fixing your “gut”. Because you can’t have a strong immune system when your intestinal tract is continually struggling and out of balance. Do you have allergies? Are you having an immune response (Inflammation) to foods that you eat? Let’s get to work at identifying your CAUSAL issue. I WILL give you a bandaid – but I’d rather help you at the core of your issue.
Do you see the Cisterna Chyli? It is the most common drainage trunk of most of the body’s lymphatics. It is part of the lymphatic system and is the sac that acquires and temporarily holds lymph. The cisterna chyli plays an integral role because it is responsible for collecting lymph and acting as a drainage point for “white fat” from the digestive organs. The lymphatic system has many functions and is an essential component of the body. First and foremost, its main function is to maintain fluid and protein balance within the body. It also is most well-known for being part of the immune system because it acts as a defense mechanism against invading microorganisms and disease. The lymphatic system is associated with the health and function of many areas the body, including the digestive system and various organs such as the spleen and thymus, as well as bone marrow.
The digestive tract’s immune system is often referred to as gut-associated lymphoid tissue (GALT) and works to protect the body from invasion. GALT is an example of mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue. The digestive tract, an important component of the body’s immune system. In fact, the intestine possesses the largest mass of lymphoid tissue in the human body. The GALT is made up of several types of lymphoid tissue that store immune cells, such as T and B lymphocytes, that carry out attacks and defend against pathogens.
Are you starting to get the picture here? Are you having immune system issues? Let’s fix the GastroIntestinal System. Where do you start? Let me suggest starting with our testing. Find your baseline, deficiencies and toxicities and fix those. How? With the food you put in your body and the suggested supplements. How do we sort through the thousands of companies who make hundreds of products?
Our products have been selected over a period of 25 years of testing. For more than 25 years now, practitioners have used blood chemistry testing to determine nutritional deficiencies and toxic metal testing (hair testing) to determine heavy metal toxicity. By gently pulling down the toxins and filling those “specific to you” nutritional deficiencies, we believe you can give your immune system the chance it needs to do its job. Our GUESS gets better, the more we test. And by re-testing after two months, we can see whether the products of the companies we’ve selected to support those deficiencies are actually working. That’s why we use Metagenics products. Because they work – for you~!
