"Some of us maintain our cars better than our bodies. We can't trade our bodies in for a newer model, so it is important to do more to stay healthy."
-Dr. Louis Granirer
Annual Holistic Physicals in Manhattan, New York City
Most of us are likely to go visit a doctor when we become sick with something such as the flu, which usually is a reactionary action dependent on a serious health problem. Ironically, we will make use of our Health Insurance Coverage in order to pay for the doctor visit. Health insurance is an instance of a precautionary action we prepare for when most of us end up being ill. Just how often do we travel to our doctor when we are not feeling poorly?
The immune system is the body's protection against contagious organisms and other invaders. Through a series of steps called the immune response, the immune system strikes organisms and substances that invade body systems and result in illness. The B-lymphocyte cells of the immune system create antibodies called immunoglobulins. These antibodies are designed to react in opposition to particular antigens introduced into the system by microorganisms of various types.
As we age, we usually experience a decrease in the functionality of the immune system, which usually boosts susceptibility to microbe infections and may reduce the quality of life. A health immune system is achieved by restoring balance to the body as a whole. Antioxidants battle and neutralize free radicals, which are molecules that harm the cells and bring about heart disease, most cancers, and early aging. Antioxidants get introduced by the food you eat.
