One of the most common signs of primary immunodeficiency is having infections that are more frequent, longer lasting or harder to treat than are the infections of someone with a normal immune system. You may also get infections that a person with a healthy immune system likely wouldn’t get (opportunistic infections).
Signs and symptoms differ depending on the type of primary immunodeficiency disorder, and they vary from person to person.
Signs and symptoms of primary immunodeficiency can include:
- Frequent and recurrent pneumonia, bronchitis, sinus infections, ear infections, meningitis or skin infections
- Inflammation and infection of internal organs
- Blood disorders, such as low platelet counts or anaemia
- Digestive problems, such as cramping, loss of appetite, nausea and diarrhoea
- Delayed growth and development
- Autoimmune disorders, such as lupus, rheumatoid arthritis or type 1 diabetes
If you are one of those people who find yourselves picking up every little bug going around, it’s time to take a good hard look at the food you are putting in your body.
Processed food tends to be high in saturated fats, salt and refined sugar, all of which make our guts unhealthy and cause inflammation in the body. In turn, our immune systems don’t function like they should. We have trillions of tiny bacterial cells living in our intestines, which help break down food, absorb nutrients and keep toxins out. These cells in our guts thrive on what we feed them. So, when we feed them too much salt, sugar and saturated fat, it really messes with the entire ecosystem! Junk food causes the wrong bacteria and yeast to grow. Our immune function becomes compromised and then we aren’t able to fight off bugs like the cold and flu the way we should.
So if you want to stay healthy this winter, give your immune system a fighting chance. Get rid of the junk food and focus on keeping your gut healthy and inflammation at bay with the help of a balanced meal plan combined with either our HCG drops or injections. You can not only look forward to healthier you but also losing as much as 10kg in just 30 days on our weight loss program.
