I love the idea that hyper clean homes make kids sick. I absolutely love it… especially because my kids lick shopping carts.
Well, not really, but I have made this statement for years, which means – I do not wipe shopping carts clean just because my belief is that the more dirt, virus and bacteria that get into my kids and myself, the longer we will live, and the easier time we will have of it. The reason is because the immune system is smart.
Stop and pause on that idea, the immune system is smart. What could be cooler than a smart immune system? I am always working with people who need that intelligence in their immune systems. Not dumb immune systems, but smart ones. Ones that have become dumb so to speak, by the cultural damage of our society. Wearing away our gut lining, passing proteins into our blood stream that don’t belong…. irritating our lock and key mechanism through the ongoing onslaught of vaccines. Introducing chemicals directly to our blood stream, ignoring the fact that our bodies rely on the gastric (think digestive tract) associated lymphoid (think lymph and immune system) tissue to build so much of our antibodies. This tissue is associated with our gut.
We are a dumb people in that the answers lie in front of us, yet we don’t think it makes sense to look.
So, in response to this mentality, or being this mental, I suggest we buy a pet. Yep, get a pet. Why you ask? Because pets change our immune systems for the better.
Consider this first –
The American Heart Association published research in the journal Circulation that analyzed whether or not people with pets live longer. The study found associations between pet ownership and low blood pressure, heart rate, and cholesterol levels.
Then jump over to this - http://health
ing in the journal Pediatrics, researchers say that babies who grow up in homes with a pet — namely a dog or a cat — are less likely to get sick than children who live pet-free. The results bolster the notion that keeping infants’ environments overly sanitized isn’t good for their health. Previous research has linked the presence of pets with a lower risk of allergies among babies, while a recent study in mice found that exposure to household dust from homes with a dog prevented infection with a common respiratory virus that is thought to increase the risk of childhood asthma.
Pretty cool. It means this – if you are around a pet, whether for their dander or for what they bring in the home, your immune system maps and learns how to fight better, and you live with less illness. Now consider the difference between building blocks of an immune system, and the control tower of your immune system.
You see, we often look at the immune system as dumb, so in that stupidity, we assume that our entire effort is to “build it” with probiotics, vitamin C, vitamin D, zinc, echinacea, and others. But all of this is like deciding not to study for a test, but just eat better. If we choose to eat better, we’ll be more prepared for the test from a physical perspective, but we will certainly not be smarter. The immune system is the same. It develops intelligence from being introduced to viruses and bacteria, but it also relies on the brain to drive that intelligence, and heavily on the brain stem.
This brings us to what we do. Adjust.
A spine with a misaligned atlas has been found to impede the intelligence of the immune system, so much so that it is has been found in research, that an atlas adjustment can cause a 10-15% rise in immunoglobulins within a 15 minute period, in people with atlas misalignment. We call this creating harmony and balance in an immune system.
So, go out, get a pet, stay dirty, eat clean, and get adjusted. Period.
