How to Hack Your Immune System

written by: Dr. Tim Jackson

Today, a variety of factors contribute to weakened immunity in the majority of the population
1)      Heavy metals/toxic metals: Mercury, aluminum, lead, etc.
2)      Pesticides, herbicides and other contaminants
3)      Low body temperature
4)      Hormonal imbalances: high cortisol/low DHEA, low cortisol/low DHEA, low thyroid function
5)      Poor digestive health: imbalances in good:bad flora, mal-absorption, etc.
6)      Epigenetic polymorphisms that are expressing: MTHFR, which is related to the production of certain types of immune cells known as T cells and GSTM/GSTP, which affects our levels of glutathione, an anti-oxidant important for immune function.
