I just wanted to take some time and talk to you about how amazing our immune system is and how we often do things that prevent it from completing its job.
A few weeks ago I felt rubbish at work, although I got through the day I knew that I wasn't going to be able to help heal people the next day I needed to allow myself to get better.
The next day I cancelled all my appointments slept took herbal anti-inflammatories and I when to bed, I rested, and let my immune system go to work. I didn't take any of the usual medication that I used to take such as paracetamol or ibuprofen. I let the temperature I had run its course and found that after a couple of days I felt much better and was much less congested than I had been on previous occasions when I used over the counter remedies.
When I started learning more and more about the human body I discovered what an amazing thing it really is and your immune system uses everything in its power to fight the invading viruses and bacteria that it has.
One of the weapons in its arsenal is raising the body temperature to make it a hostile environment for these invaders, and so taking medication to reduce your temperature can be counterproductive and may possibly result in the infection lasting longer.
Another tool the body uses is to create mucus, this is not the infection itself but your body generating a seal or package with which to expel the invader through your orifices via coughing, sneezing and blowing your nose.
Yes, it's disgusting but better out than in.
I noticed that in allowing myself to rest, and taking vitamin C, D and an anti-inflammatory supplement such as Turmeric (yes the spice) I was back to my usual self much quicker and my symptoms did not linger anywhere near as long.
I am not a doctor but do lead a healthy lifestyle. I speak about my experiences and what I have learned from studying. These tips will help you if you are a usually healthy person and don't have any underlying health issues.
If your temperature is over 39'c or if it lasts longer than a couple of days then you should seek medical attention from your doctor.
