The good order of the immune system is vital for the health of the human body. Its role is to protect the body against the pathogen agents from the environment: bacteria, viruses, fungi, protozoans and parasites, but also to take part in the destruction and elimination of he dysfunctional, dead or tumoral cells.
Although constantly subject to the influences from the outer environment, under normal conditions of environment, the immune system creates a barrier that won’t allow the pathogen agents from the environment to penetrate into the body.
But – when the immune system is over strained – this immune barrier gives in and the pathogen agents from the environment together with other harmful factors attack the body, causing diseases of various types. The overstrain occurs as a result of the environmental conditions becoming harsher and of pollution, because of the diminishing of the planet’s oxygen supply, deterioration of the ozone layer, increase in the level of solar and cosmic radiations. The lack of oxygen in the atmosphere is one of the causes that bias the development of new strains of viruses of great agressiveness and increased resistence to the existing medication. Our alert lifestyle, stress and unhealthy diet also have bad effects upon our immunity.
In these environment conditions, the endocrine system is the first affected one. The endocrine dysfunctions and the hormonal disorders will give birth to breaches in the immune barrier at the level of the skin and of the mucous membranes. The pathogen agents and the toxins penetrating the body alter the pulmonary activity and later the kidneys. This load will also affect the heart’s functions, a phenomenon that will decrease body’s oxygenation level, especially in the cerebral area. The diminished oxygenation makes all the physiological functions more difficult, and the reduced cerebral oxygenation will lead to disorders of the cognitive functions and to a altered communication between brain and organs.
In order to restore the immune balance and the immune barrier, first you must identify the endocrine gland the most affected and normalize its and the whole endocrine system’s functions. At pulmonary level the action is aimed at eliminating the accumulated toxins and at treating the lesions caused by the pathogen agents. By strengthening liver and kidneys, the hepatic and renal functions are rebalanced, but also the elimination is increased of toxins, pathogen agents and metabolic products from the body.
The acupuncture treatment aims at stimulating the energy of the endocrine and pulmonary systems, of the liver, the kidneys and the heart, while the medicinal herb products work to detoxify and purify blood and organs, to improve cell oxygenation, to reinvigorate and regenerate the affected tissues and organs. The restoration of the immune functions will allow for the dead or dysfunctional cells in the body to be properly eliminated, so that they can be replaced with new ones, by using the genetic information in a healthy cell.
