What Does Your Immune System Do?

The body’s immune system protects the body from many illnesses – some major and others–minor. This gives an essential, indispensable role in maintaining our health. Having a healthy immune system means you are less likely to be always down under the weather despite the various types of stresses imposed on the body.

Why Do You Need A Strong Immune System?

For the above reasons, we must maintain a strong immune system. A weak immune system leaves us more susceptible to coming down with illnesses, including possibly serious ones. To avoid this increased susceptibility by keeping our immune system healthy, we need to recognize the warning signs of a weakened immune system. If we recognize the warning signs, we can take steps to boost our immune systems to a healthier level.

What Pointers Of A Weak Immune System Should You Look Out For?

So, what signs should you be looking out for if you suspect you have a weakened immune system? There are a couple of them. Some are obvious, others not much so (you have to keep careful observation to note them). Below we look at some signs of a weakened immune system that you should be aware of.

1. You Are Under Very High Levels Of Stress

There is a subtle distinction to note here. Being under high-stress levels does not necessarily mean you have a weakened immune system because stress is a usual response to some external or internal factors. However, stress does tend to weaken the immune system. That’s why you tend to fall ill more often when you are undergoing very stressful periods. Stress tends to raise the level of steroids in the body, which has an immunosuppressive effect. If you are frequently under stress, there’s some chance that it may have weakened your immune system. You should, therefore, be more careful with situations that may expose you to illness.

2. Your Wounds Heal Slowly

This is one of the points that may require you to observe yourself closely. Wound healing is a restorative process mediated by different cells of the immune system. When the immune system is weakened, the wound healing process is consequently impeded. If you notice your wounds are taking much longer than usual to heal, it could be a sign you have a weakened immune system.

3.  You Are Always Under The Weather

As earlier pointed out, the immune system defends our bodies against many kinds of illnesses. Due to this function, it’s able to ward off many invading organisms, so we don’t fall Ill. However, if you are always catching a cold or other minor illnesses, it is a sign that your body’s immune system is weakened and unable to carry out its functions as well as supposed. Frequent infections also are a possible sign of a weakened immune system. Under normal conditions, the immune system fights off the majority of infection-causing organisms. However, when the immune system is weak, this function is compromised, resulting in a higher infection rate.

4. You Always Feel Tired

Being tired is usually a sign of overexertion. However, suppose you are always tired, especially in the absence of significant physical activity. In that case, it is a possible sign your body’s immune system is weakened or at risk of being depleted.

A Home-based Entrepreneur and Blogger For me, being a home-based entrepreneur, parent and blogger has been quite an experience. Here’s how I got started on it all. Where I’ve been Becoming a blogger and a hardcore, home-based entrepreneur wasn’t exactly a planned career action for me. I can almost say I didn’t see it coming. It all started when I got pregnant with my first child. Back then, I was still working as a flight attendant, and I have to admit that I really loved my job. But when that baby came on board, I decided that I wanted to be as involved in my child’s life as I could possibly be. Once I’d made my decision, I swung into action. I quit my job and quickly made plans for a new (and different) life with the baby in mind. My foray into the glamorous world of entrepreneurship and blogging was a little more abrupt. This started a lot more recently.   I first came into contact with these products sometime around two years ago. In 2018, my aunt-in-law would be the first person to preach to me the wonders of Aulora Kodenshi. I confess that I was very skeptical back then. As I mentioned earlier, I didn’t see myself as an entrepreneur (or even a blogger for that matter). I felt I was comfortable in my role as a housewife and that picking up endeavors like that was for people who had more money to “waste.” I decided to continue to keep my focus as a good mother and an ideal housewife. The plan was, if I kept feeding my family good food and making sure that they all exercised regularly, there wouldn’t ever be a need to buy any of the products my husband’s aunt talked to me about. As it turned out, I’d not end up buying the products; I’d also become one of its most vocal advocates. How I Got Here Our second child got a case of eczema when she was about 18 months old. Ever since that time, every so often, she’d have a rather severe outbreak. The doctors would always tell us it was nothing serious, nothing to bother about, and we believed them for the most part. A reason for this was that almost like clock-work, she’d always get better after every 3-6 months. All of this changed though in February 2019. She had an outbreak, and we thought it was normal until she scratched so hard she drew blood. We tried everything to no avail. Frustrated, I decided to try SHIRUTO, one of the many products from BE International. In no time at all, the eczema and even the scars cleared up. I was so excited, I took to my social media page to share my joy, and that’s how I got into blogging and entrepreneurship. Plans for the Future I’m happy with where I am right now. I have a healthy family with a career I want to see grow. I don’t conform to the classic stay-at-mom routine of waking early in the morning. I do my best work at night when everyone’s happy and rested. The goal is to continue to remain healthy and inspire everyone around me to be free and keep those positive vibes flowing strong!
