  1. 1. “ Healthy Immune System” Prevention Plus Series Presented by: Yolanda Washington LSHC
  2. 2. What you will learn: <ul><li>The importance of a healthy immune system </li></ul><ul><li>What part immunity plays in our overall health </li></ul><ul><li>Which organs are a part of the immune system </li></ul><ul><li>What function the cells play in the immune </li></ul><ul><li>system process </li></ul><ul><li>Some disorders of a compromised </li></ul><ul><li>immune system </li></ul><ul><li>How to support the immune system </li></ul>
  3. 3. The Immune System <ul><li>Is the biological structures and processes within the body that protects against disease </li></ul><ul><li>Kills pathogens and tumor cells </li></ul><ul><li>Detects a wide variety of agents, from </li></ul><ul><li>viruses to parasitic worms </li></ul><ul><li>Distinguishes the body’s own healthy cells </li></ul><ul><li>and tissues in order to function properly </li></ul><ul><li>Has a complicated detection system as </li></ul><ul><li>pathogens can evolve rapidly, and adapt to </li></ul><ul><li>avoid the immune system, allowing </li></ul><ul><li>pathogens to successfully infect the body </li></ul>
  4. 4. Major Organs of the Immune System <ul><li>Bone Marrow </li></ul><ul><li>Where all cells of the human immune </li></ul><ul><li>system are formed </li></ul><ul><li>Responsible for the production of </li></ul><ul><li>important immune system cells like B </li></ul><ul><li>cells, granulocytes, natural killer cells </li></ul><ul><li>and immature thymocytes (T cells) </li></ul><ul><li>Produces red blood cells and platelets </li></ul><ul><li>Thymus Gland </li></ul><ul><li>Located in the upper chest region </li></ul><ul><li>Produces scores of lymphocytes </li></ul><ul><li>during childhood </li></ul><ul><li>Immature cells, produced at the bone </li></ul><ul><li>marrow, migrate to mature here </li></ul><ul><li>Only allows the beneficial T cells to be </li></ul><ul><li>released into the bloodstream </li></ul><ul><li>Eliminates T cells that evoke a </li></ul><ul><li>detrimental autoimmune response </li></ul>
  5. 5. Major Organs of the Immune System (cont) <ul><li>Spleen </li></ul><ul><li>Is found under the left rib cage near the side </li></ul><ul><li>It holds a reservoir of blood and platelets </li></ul><ul><li>Destroys old red blood cells and functions as a </li></ul><ul><li>lymph gland to filter blood </li></ul><ul><li>Lymph Nodes </li></ul><ul><li>Filters the interstitial fluid present </li></ul><ul><li>between the cells of the human </li></ul><ul><li>body </li></ul><ul><li>Situated throughout the </li></ul><ul><li>lymphatic system of the body </li></ul><ul><li>Act as immunologic filter and </li></ul><ul><li>drains lymph from most of the </li></ul><ul><li>body tissues, filters out antigens, </li></ul><ul><li>before allowing the lymph to </li></ul><ul><li>return to circulation </li></ul><ul><li>More lymphatic support </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Ledum #3579 </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Grapefruit #3560 </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Aroma Guard Deodorants </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Mountain Mint #3753 </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Meadow Mist #3752 </li></ul></ul>#3650
  6. 6. Other Immune System Organs (cont) <ul><li>Large and Small Intestine </li></ul><ul><li>Houses over 700 species of bacteria </li></ul><ul><li>that perform a variety of functions </li></ul><ul><li>Produces antibodies effective </li></ul><ul><li>against pathogens, preventing </li></ul><ul><li>infection or invasion </li></ul><ul><li>Produce enzymes to detoxify </li></ul><ul><li>antigens and xenobiotics </li></ul><ul><li>(chemicals) such as drugs </li></ul><ul><li>Home to health-enhancing “friendly </li></ul><ul><li>bacteria” promoting immune </li></ul><ul><li>system health </li></ul>
  7. 7. Other Immune System Organs (cont) <ul><li>Appendix </li></ul><ul><li>Contains abundant infection-fighting </li></ul><ul><li>lymphoid cells </li></ul><ul><li>Protect beneficial bacteria in the gut </li></ul><ul><li>Haven for useful bacteria </li></ul><ul><li>Helps recovery from illness providing a “safe </li></ul><ul><li>house” for beneficial bacteria </li></ul><ul><li>Peyer’s Patches </li></ul><ul><li>Lymphoid tissue that are usually found in the </li></ul><ul><li>lowest portion of the small intestine </li></ul><ul><li>Help facilitate immune response </li></ul>
  8. 8.

  9. 9. Two Types of Immunity <ul><li>Innate or nonspecific Immunity includes: </li></ul><ul><li>Phagocytes and Natural Killer (NK) Cells </li></ul><ul><li>• Programmed to recognize alien or hostile pathogens and destroy them </li></ul><ul><li>Specific Immunity includes: </li></ul><ul><li>Lymphocytes (white blood corpuscles) </li></ul><ul><li>• Recognize specific alien or hostile pathogens and attack to destroy with a </li></ul><ul><li>specific protein called an antibody </li></ul><ul><li>These two types of cells have limited functions. They guard us, protect us and usher specific pathogens out of our bodies. </li></ul>
  10. 10. Two Types of Lymphocyte Cells <ul><li>B Cells </li></ul><ul><li>Produced in the bone marrow </li></ul><ul><li>Dispatched throughout the body </li></ul><ul><li>Congregate in the nodes of the lymphatic system </li></ul><ul><li>T Cells </li></ul><ul><li>Produced in bone marrow and sent to the thymus gland </li></ul><ul><li>Deployed from thymus when needed to fight invaders </li></ul><ul><li>These two cells are the leaders of our immune system. They learn, adapt and remember. They prepare for present and future activation and are executed when needed. </li></ul>
  11. 11. Phytoncides - Wood Essential Oils Effect of phytoncide from trees on human natural killer cell function. Li Q, Kobayashi M, Wakayama Y, Inagaki H, Katsumata M, Hirata Y, Hirata K, Shimizu T, Kawada T, Park BJ, et al. Int J Immunopathol Pharmacol. 2009 Oct-Dec; 22(4):951-9. In Taiwan, South Korea and Japan, people commonly engage in so-called forest bathing to breathe in phytoncides emitted by the plant and trees, in order to improve their health. Data indicate that phytoncides (wood essential oils) significantly enhance human natural killer (NK ) cells activity by preventing the growth of the attaching organism. Natural Killer (NK) Cell Research
  12. 12. Cells of the Immune System Summary Foreign substance (antigen) enters body and initiates an immune system response. Antibodies are released to counter the antigens, thereby freeing the body of infection. This system of teamwork among the organs of the immune system is simply magnificent!
  13. 13. Immunodeficiency Disorders <ul><li>Can be hereditary </li></ul><ul><li>May appear later in life </li></ul><ul><li>Acquired through infection or </li></ul><ul><li>produced by drugs </li></ul><ul><li>Secondary Immunodeficiency's </li></ul><ul><li>Chemotherapy treatment </li></ul><ul><li>Immunosuppressant medications </li></ul>Occurs when a part of the immune system is not present or is not working properly
  14. 14. Autoimmune Disorders <ul><li>Lupus </li></ul><ul><li>Chronic disease </li></ul><ul><li>Muscle, joint pain and inflammation </li></ul><ul><li>Rheumatoid arthritis </li></ul><ul><li>Inflammatory condition </li></ul><ul><li>Joint pain </li></ul><ul><li>Scleroderma </li></ul><ul><li>Thickening of the skin </li></ul><ul><li>Over production of collagen </li></ul>Immune system mistakenly attacks the body's healthy organs and tissues as though they were foreign invaders
  15. 15. Allergic Disorders <ul><li>Asthma </li></ul><ul><li>Respiratory disorder that can cause breathing </li></ul><ul><li>problems </li></ul><ul><li>Allergic response by the lungs to certain </li></ul><ul><li>allergens (like pollen, molds, animal dander, or </li></ul><ul><li>dust mites) </li></ul><ul><li>Breathing tubes in the lungs become narrowed </li></ul><ul><li>Reduced airflow makes it hard for a person to </li></ul><ul><li>breathe </li></ul>Allergic disorders occur when the immune system overreacts to exposure to antigens in the environment. Can cause symptoms such as swelling, watery eyes, and sneezing, and even a life-threatening reaction called anaphylaxis
  16. 16. Allergic Disorders (cont.) <ul><li>Eczema </li></ul><ul><li>Itchy rash also known as atopic dermatitis </li></ul><ul><li>Not necessarily caused by an allergic reaction </li></ul><ul><li>Occurs in those who have allergies, hay fever, or </li></ul><ul><li>asthma or who have a family history of these </li></ul><ul><li>conditions </li></ul><ul><li>Allergies </li></ul><ul><li>Environmental allergies (to dust mites, for </li></ul><ul><li>example) </li></ul><ul><li>Seasonal allergies </li></ul><ul><li>Drug allergies </li></ul><ul><li>Food allergies </li></ul><ul><li>Allergies to toxins (bee stings, for example) </li></ul>

  19. 19. Testimonial ImmuPower I was about two and a quarter years past having chemo for colon cancer. The chemo was for 6 months, one week on and 3 weeks off. My reaction to the chemo was harsh. I lost most of my hair which is unusual and had terrible mouth sores. I thought I was all over it but about 6 months ago I had a skin eruption on both of my lower legs in the front. No itching or other adverse complaints. My oncologist asked me to get checked by a dermatologist which I did. We tried some prescribed ointment, that did not work, scrapings did not show spores or molds so she took a biopsy. It was negative for cancer or pre-cancer. I felt it might be latent chemo reaction, hard to believe, my liver function tests had been good. I felt, intuitively, that my immune system might need a boost so I started applying ImmuPower essential oil twice a day over my liver and on the soles of my feet. With a week, the sores have abated and I return to the dermatologist in two weeks. I think she will be surprised!! Sonja Simpson, NE

  25. 25. Testimonials Since I started to take a drop of thieves oil in the morning and at night, I have not had a flu or viral infection for several months. Prior to this I had something nearly every month! I also felt 'clearer' in my head and more alert. I know that others noticed an improvement as when I ran out of my thieves oil for a few days... someone from work asked if I was ok as I had looked so well and now looked tired again! I had not told anyone at this stage that I was trying the oils!! Working in schools and around children I will make sure thieves is always there to help keep my immune system stronger! Riikka Kuronen, Tasmania, AU In 2009, I had the privilege of returning to the food and beverage industry as a sales associate, aka waitress. The average day consisted of encountering hundreds of people's airborne germs, saliva and filthy money. Boosting my immune system and killing these germs were of the utmost importance. So everyday I would put at least two drops of Thieves under my tongue one to three times. I stayed well the entire year! Eva Malueg, TX

Several cells of the immune system can accumulate vitamin C and need the vitamin to perform their task. Thus a vitamin C deficiency results in a reduced resistance against certain pathogens whilst a higher supply enhances several immune system parameters. Supplementation of vitamin C is most effective in cases of physical strain or insufficient intake of the vitamin. Ströhle A, Hahn A. [Vitamin C and immune function]. Med Monatsschr Pharm. 2009 Feb;32(2):49-54; quiz 55-6. Review. German. PubMed PMID: 19263912.
