The foundation of our immune system forms from the moment we are conceived. How we were born (vaginal birth vs c-section) and whether we were breastfed or not play big roles along with how healthy our mother was during her pregnancy with us and how we were affected by her habits in utero. I ask all my patients these questions and they find it quite interesting as they tell me no one has ever asked them anything like this. Along with these questions, I inquire about chronic antibiotic or pharma med use and diet and lifestyle habits. These contribute significantly to the functioning of our immune system.

Our thymus gland, which deserves its own story, plays a major role in immunity and aging. The thymus gland is the body organ that took scientists the longest time to understand. It's only active from when you're born until you become a teenager. Still, it plays a huge role in training your body to fight infections and even cancer for the rest of your life. It's also vital to the body's chemical messaging or endocrine system.

My tips for optimizing your immune system include my 4 pillars of a healthy lifestyle. Simplicity is key. Focus on a clean diet, exercise, restorative sleep, and stress reduction. Take physician-regulated nutraceuticals which include D3, C, zinc, glutathione, omega, iodine, and melatonin, just to name a few. Get IV vitamin therapy and use peptides such as thymosin. Keep your hormones balanced and avoid toxin and chemical exposure which lowers your immune system and increases inflammation and carcinogenesis.
