Low Immunity Treatmentsin Rockford / South Barrington / Palm Beach Gardens

Are you constantly getting sick or feeling under the weather? Low immunity may be to blame.

People with low immunity lack the natural defenses to fight off illness and, therefore, they tend to get sick more easily than other people. In order for the body to fend off disease and function at peak performance, it needs a strong immune system to stay healthy.

What Causes a Weak Immune System?

Low immunity or a poor immune response can be the result of one or more of the following factors:

  • Poor sleep
  • Smoking
  • Alcohol consumption
  • Lack of nutrients (vitamin deficiency or poor diet)
  • Stressful lifestyle
  • Certain medical conditions like HIV/AIDS
  • Old age or young age
  • And more.

How Does the Immune System Work?

The immune system acts as the body's natural defense against infections from the outside world. The immune system responds to germs by attacking them in order for a person to remain in good health despite exposure to antigens or harmful foreign substances.

One of the most important components of the immune system is leukocytes, also called white blood cells. White blood cells destroy foreign invaders and also remember them so that they can more easily fight them off in the future should a person come into contact with the same type of bacteria, virus, or disease-causing organism. The white blood cells build up antibodies, also called immunoglobulins, which are proteins that fight specific illnesses.There are three types of immunity.

Natural immunity is the kind humans are born with. This is also known as innate immunity. Then there is adaptive immunity, which is how the immune system learns to recognize and respond to pathogens a person encounters throughout their life. Then there is the passive immune system. This occurs when a person is given disease-fighting antibodies from a source outside of their own body — for example from an injection such as Liquivida nutrient IV drips.

Signs of a Weak Immune System

This can be different for everyone. People that struggle with exhaustion may notice one or more of the following symptoms:

  • Frequent or recurring infections
  • Feeling tired or sluggish
  • Slow-healing wounds
  • Autoimmune diseases
  • Certain blood disorders
  • Digestive problems
  • Rashes
  • Loss of appetite
  • And more

The Most Effective Ways to Strengthen Immunity

The first steps you can take to establish and maintain a healthy lifestyle is eating a healthy diet that is rich in whole foods such as fruits and vegetables, reducing stress, getting regular exercise, ensuring that you get enough sleep every night, and abstaining from alcohol, nicotine, and drug use.

These are the basic factors that make up a healthy lifestyle, which supports overall health and wellness. However, some people can benefit from a more immediate immunity boost, such as Liquivida IV treatments for immunity.

Bacteria and viruses, such as those that cause COVID-19, can devastate a person with low immunity.
