I query individuals daily on their stress levels and rate stress on a scale of 1 through 10, with 10 being extremely high. A minimum of 90 percent report stress at an 8 or 9 level. Not only is it high, but that level tends to sustain for years, not merely months!
The human body can handle high peaks of stress for short cycles of time, but not high peaks of stress endlessly. Stress for most is clearly on the rise, lowering the immune system’s ability to stave off and recognize perpetrators. Relentless stress can promote the expression of cancer cells and, with statistics rolling out the numbers, we know that, by the year 2013, one out of two Americans will have cancer in their lifetime.
I suggest looking at Transfer Factors from Reserached Nutritionals. These little wonders influence the immune system in a variety of ways. Referred to as TFs in the world of healing, TFs give birth to new helper T-cells, natural killer cells, as well as activating macrophages (which scavenge bad cells and toxic debris) while increasing the many levels of immune responses. TFs bind to the surface of infected cells via antigens. This in turn “flags” the infected cells for production.
In vitro lab studies show the immune system produces lymphocytes, which are responsible for increased T-cell production, (the watch-dogs in cell mediated immunity), B-cells, which activate the production of antibodies, and and an increase in NK cells, or natural killer cells, which target and destroy infected cells.
NK cells are the first line of defense; they inject tiny toxic granules into their target, killing them on contact. After 30 days of two capsules per day, NK cell production showed a 235 percent increase in NK production. With four capsules per day, the increase is over 600 percent!
Picture your body as your castle and your TFs as your white knights. For most sleepless, over-caffeinated Americans, your TFs (or white knights) are lounging at Starbucks, slamming down yet another high-sugar, hormone laden, highly caffeinated latte, while puffing on a cigarette. By taking TFs, 1000 mg per day, or 4000 mg per day if you have cancer, you can double or even quadruple the number of white knights.
