Immunity and strengthening of the immune system with AquaSource products
Dr. Vilma Mihaylova is a pediatrician, holistic doctor and classical homeopath who has been using AquaSource’ s healthy superfoods in her practice for more than 13 years.
In the video presented, Dr. Mihaylova talks about the structure and function of the immune system and the ways we can support it. She also shares her experience of using Aqua Sors superfoods when she needs to boost her immunity.
Immunity and why is prophylaxis with Aquasource important?
Health is not bought with money, but it is created with money and maintained with money. At first glance this sounds paradoxical, but it is good to realize this simple truth. As a physician dedicated to children, I saw it long ago and have been working mainly in the field of prevention for many years.
Good health depends on two absolute truths:
1. Our body must be nourished continuously so that there is no cell starvation;
2. Our body needs to be provided with the conditions to deal effectively with the microbes penetrating it.
How does the immune system work and why is gut health so important?
The digestion of food coming from the stomach and the suction of nutrients takes place in the small intestine of man. The secretions of the two major digestive glands – liver and pancreas – are also poured there. For the effective performance of its functions it has a large secreting and resorbing surface provided by its great length (6-7 meters), its multiple folding and the strong folding of its mucous membrane from the inside, which increases its surface area twofold.
The intestinal villi and intestinal glands are richly permeated with lymphocytes, which in places are organized into lymphoid follicles. They are seen on the inner surface of the intestine as flat oblong spots called Peyer’s patches. They are the basis of maintaining our intestinal immunity. It is part of our internal immune system, which consists of thymus, spleen, bone marrow, lymphatic system, white blood cells, antibodies and hormones.
Modern food preparation practices reduce the nutritional value of food and increase the risk of bacterial contamination. For example, if Escherichia coli or Salmonella bacteria get into and multiply in the gut, they cause various disease manifestations that make us feel sick. The scale of these manifestations depends on the rate of their multiplication and our body’s ability to destroy them. These single-celled organisms divide in two every 20 minutes. So if they find the right environment in just a few hours they reach millions.
That’s why all our health largely depends on the gut! This is a very bold statement, but it is a fact. So-called leaky gut syndrome is underestimated or not considered at all, as is irritable bowel syndrome. And these two syndromes are common and are associated with dysbacteriosis and improper lifestyle and diet.
Why are probiotics important?
The human gut usually contains several kilograms of live bacteria. Their composition and quantity are highly dependent on the lifestyle we lead, the state of our environment, the food we eat and the water we drink, as well as our psycho-emotional state. Of all the 500 or so species of microorganisms that inhabit our bodies, only two are friendly. They are called probiotics – Aquasource Acidophilus and Bifidus.
If probiotics are not in sufficient quantity, it disrupts the balance of the intestinal bacterial flora and leads to a disruption of our ecosystem. Thus, the contents of the intestine become a potential source of internal infectious agents. The result is the proliferation of disease-causing bacteria, parasites and fungi, leading to the dangerous condition known as dysbacteriosis.
Probiotics are especially important during the first years of a person’s life. This is very relevant for babies born by cesarean section or not breastfed, but fed with infant formula. In mammals, including humans, the transmission of basic immunity occurs as the mother passes ready-made antibodies to the child via the placenta, and then with colostrum and breast milk. In this way, the newborn is protected from potentially disease-causing microbes until its own immune system has developed sufficiently.
Active and passive immunity
Only then is the so-called active immunity switched on. It is the production of immunocompetent cells and specialized molecules called antibodies as the body’s reaction against foreign substances, including infectious agents. The action of antibodies is to divert or neutralize disease-causing agents. A very important feature of antibodies is that they specifically target the antigen that caused their formation.
The immune system is essentially a natural defense mechanism against infection. We have passive innate immunity and active immunity, which is adaptogenic – i.e. it is created as needed. Passive immune protection of the gastrointestinal tract is the basis of stable health from the first days of human life. Passive immunity is the first line of defense. The active is slower but more specific to the foreign agent. It is important here, however, that the memory property, which provides resistance to a reoccurring hazard, is included.
And last but not least in importance in relation to the body’s resistance to germs is the state of the entrance gates for infections. These are the skin, mucous membranes of the nasopharynx, respiratory, digestive and genitourinary systems. They are first exposed to contact with bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites, and their condition determines whether the invaders will be allowed inside our body. The cells of these important organs of ours are able to divide very quickly, which ensures the regeneration and good condition of these natural barriers of the body. But for this they need specific foods – above all essential amino acids and essential fatty acids.
How to boost immunity with Aquasource products?
That’s why as a practitioner I rely so much on superfoods and probiotics. Green Energy supports active immunity, Colostrum brings passive immunity, fatty acids help maintain healthy barriers, and probiotics(Acidophilus and Bifidus) help restore the gut ecosystem.
