The study of the human immune system is critical to longevity. Longevity (aging with health) is directly related to quality of life.
American conventional medicine teaches and understands the anatomy of the immune system, but American doctors do not practice preventive medicine. They practice symptomology, i.e. they “doctor” symptoms after the patient is already sick.
To harmonize with the human immune system, preventive care must be the focus of health. There are two basic ways that this can happen. One is self-taught healthy living, and number two, work only with alternative practitioners whose priority is preventive medicine.
In fact, American doctors disregard alternative medicine as bad science without scientific proof. They discount anything not processed through the medical protocol of tests.
Many tests at very high cost is a protective of the “orthodox medical club.” This keeps out alternative people “without medically accepted credentials.”
Our immunity varies with individual biochemistry. In other words, it matters who our parents are. It is not a guarantee that if our parents live long, healthy lives that we will, but it puts the odds greatly in our favor.
In our time, we can greatly help add years by supporting our natural immune system with supplemental nutrition and whole natural foods. There is one thing conclusively proven and documented, and it is the fact that reduced calorie intake produces more years for us.
Would you commit to eating a lot less if it helped add a few years to your life? A small, but growing group of extreme dieters believe that by drastically limiting the amount of food they consume they will not only slow the aging process, but avoid heart problems, diabetes and other chronic diseases. So think calorie restriction for both health and longevity.
