SHA Wellness Clinic – Unfortunately, we are living in times when the word “virus” sets off global alarm bells. The coronavirus has strained health systems the world over and reinforced a scientific maxim: the importance of prevention and preparing an immune system that is resilient against external aggression.
It’s not a matter of curing, because there are viruses so aggressive that action after infection may be useless. Instead it’s a matter of anticipation and preparing strong defence mechanisms.
When a pathogen attacks, the body re-acts by neutralising the virus, bacteria or parasite and destroying it. “However, these agents can cause damage and produce symptoms depending on the affected organ system, such as general malaise, secretions or inflammations. Even death. Especially if we have a low immune level. What we call an immunodeficiency,” says Óscar May-orga, a medical doctor and director of Regenerative Medicine Unit of SHA Wellness Clinic.
Strengthening the immune system at the SHA Wellness Clinic
Stress or inappropriate lifestyle such as a poor or un-healthy diet are some of the main disruptors of our immune system. “Usually, those things weaken it and prevent it from responding adequately to external attacks,” Mayorga says. A strong immune system will always be better able to cope with a crisis than a weak one.
In clinical immunology, the basis of SHA Wellness Clinic’s practice, have several therapies that can combat stress in the first instance, strengthening our immune system and fighting against those agents that weaken it.
The Immune System Focused Pack which can be added when booking a Rebalance Health Programme includes nutritional supplements, trace elements and vitamins to allopathic and natural therapies and medicines that strengthen our defences.
There are also therapies such as ozone, which stimulates the immune system, as well as immuno-therapy of different levels of complexity that directly stimulate the humoral and cellular responses.
