How strong are your immunity?

My immune system is weak i think. I get ill easily. Especially in winters I have mild illness (flu like symptoms) almost everyday.Fortunately it is not too severe mostly. It doesn't affect my daily life much. But generally healing takes too much time for me. Mild disease symptoms persist for a long time.
I wonder how are your immune system?

Re: How strong are your immunity?

In overdrive because of a chronic pain condition. I rarely get sick. Most of my days off work are due to chronic pain. I take a herbal immune regulator.

If you have a weak immune system try the following as Immunity starts with a healthy gut.

Probiotics

Bone broth.

Cut out wheat and dairy.

Add more healthy fats in place of carbs.

Consider seeing a naturopath in case you need other things like liver support or a multivitamin.

Re: How strong are your immunity?

Here some more tips:


  • Keep your hands washed, as often as you can
  • Prevent sick people if possible
  • Eat a spoon of honey everyday
  • Take omega 3 everyday
  • Keep yourself healthy with vitamins (I dont)
  • Do regulary sports (I dont)
  • Prevent any spot of bacterias/germs (Im paranoid)
There are at least some things i do and im rarely ill.


Hope some of them could help you

Re: How strong are your immunity?

Have you gotten a flu shot? I say get evaluated by an endochronologist. They deal with a lot of autoimmune disorders and rheumatologists do too.

No i've never gotten flu shot (i don't think it's necessary and also some docs don't recommend it).
Autoimmune diseases: I also have some doubt (suspicion) that i may have some nonsevere type of autoimmune disease. Because i have atopic dermatit (eczema) about for 2-3 years and i have to use corticosteroid pomades every day (i know steroids also impair immune system but my immunity was already weak before i started to use corticosteroides). I'll go endocrinologist if i can find time.

Re: How strong are your immunity?

I had just wanted to know if there could be any relationship between the immune system and adhd pathogenesis. Have you ever realized that your immunity is stronger or weaker relatively to your family members or community?
I've researched some on pubmed if there's a sciencific report. But i couldn't research enough because i did bore so quickly like every time.
Do you know any sciencific article about that?

Re: How strong are your immunity?

The immune system is complicated, so it can be difficult to say that a person's immune system is "strong" or "weak" -- for example, is an immune system that overreacts to normal things (like nuts, or even a person's own tissues) "strong" or "weak"? Is an immune system that takes its time to fight off germs, but does so without causing terrible symptoms or destroying a lot of healthy tissue, "strong" or "weak"? When a person's immune responses vary over time (development of allergy or autoimmune disease, decrease in ability to fight pathogens, changes with pregnancy, etc.), it gets even more complicated...

There have been studies suggesting that ADHD is associated with a higher prevalence of allergic conditions -- but how they are connected isn't entirely clear.

Inflammation has (sometimes) been associated with ADHD and a number of other conditions, but again, it's unclear what the relationship is.

Since ADHD itself is likely a condition with multiple causes, it may be that association with immune function varies.


Here are some research studies (of varying scope and quality) that touch on ADHD and immune function.
