Many products on store shelves claim to boost or support immunity. But the concept of boosting immunity actually makes little sense scientifically. In fact, boosting the number of cells in your body — immune cells or others — is not necessarily a good thing. For example, athletes who engage in "blood doping" — pumping blood into their systems to boost their number of blood cells and enhance their performance — run the risk of strokes.
Attempting to boost the cells of your immune system is especially complicated because there are so many different kinds of cells in the immune system that respond to so many different microbes in so many ways. Which cells should you boost, and to what number? So far, scientists do not know the answer. What is known is that the body is continually generating immune cells. Certainly, it produces many more lymphocytes than it can possibly use. The extra cells remove themselves through a natural process of cell death called apoptosis — some before they see any action, some after the battle is won. No one knows how many cells or what the best mix of cells the immune system needs to function at its optimum level.
As we age, our immune response capability becomes reduced, which in turn contributes to more infections and more cancer. As life expectancy in developed countries has increased, so too has the incidence of age-related conditions.
While some people age healthily, the conclusion of many studies is that, compared with younger people, the elderly are more likely to contract infectious diseases and, even more importantly, more likely to die from them. Respiratory infections, influenza, and particularly pneumonia are a leading cause of death in people over 65 worldwide. No one knows for sure why this happens, but some scientists observe that this increased risk correlates with a decrease in T cells, possibly from the thymus atrophying with age and producing fewer T cells to fight off infection. Whether this decrease in thymus function explains the drop in T cells or whether other changes play a role is not fully understood. Others are interested in whether the bone marrow becomes less efficient at producing the stem cells that give rise to the cells of the immune system.
A reduction in immune response to infections has been demonstrated by older people's response to vaccines. For example, studies of influenza vaccines have shown that for people over age 65, the vaccine is much less effective compared to healthy children (over age 2). But despite the reduction in efficacy, vaccinations for influenza and S. pneumoniae have significantly lowered the rates of sickness and death in older people when compared with no vaccination.
There appears to be a connection between nutrition and immunity in the elderly. A form of malnutrition that is surprisingly common even in affluent countries is known as "micronutrient malnutrition." Micronutrient malnutrition, in which a person is deficient in some essential vitamins and trace minerals that are obtained from or supplemented by diet, can be common in the elderly. Older people tend to eat less and often have less variety in their diets. One important question is whether dietary supplements may help older people maintain a healthier immune system. Older people should discuss this question with a physician who is well versed in geriatric nutrition, because while some dietary supplementation may be beneficial for older people, even small changes can have serious repercussions in this age group.
Following general good-health guidelines is the single best step you can take toward naturally keeping your immune system strong and healthy. Every part of your body, including your immune system, functions better when protected from environmental assaults and bolstered by healthy-living strategies such as these:
Almost every mother has said it: "Wear a jacket or you'll catch a cold!" Is she right? So far, researchers who are studying this question think that normal exposure to moderate cold doesn't increase your susceptibility to infection. Most health experts agree that the reason winter is "cold and flu season" is not that people are cold, but that they spend more time indoors, in closer contact with other people who can pass on their germs.
But researchers remain interested in this question in different populations. Some experiments with mice suggest that cold exposure might reduce the ability to cope with infection. But what about humans? Scientists have dunked people in cold water and made others sit nude in subfreezing temperatures. They've studied people who lived in Antarctica and those on expeditions in the Canadian Rockies. The results have been mixed. For example, researchers documented an increase in upper respiratory infections in competitive cross-country skiers who exercise vigorously in the cold, but whether these infections are due to the cold or other factors — such as the intense exercise or the dryness of the air — is not known.
A group of Canadian researchers that has reviewed hundreds of medical studies on the subject and conducted some of its own research concludes that there's no need to worry about moderate cold exposure — it has no detrimental effect on the human immune system. Should you bundle up when it's cold outside? The answer is "yes" if you're uncomfortable, or if you're going to be outdoors for an extended period where such problems as frostbite and hypothermia are a risk. But don't worry about immunity.
Regular is one of the pillars of healthy living. It improves cardiovascular health, lowers blood pressure, helps control body weight, and protects against a variety of diseases. But does it help to boost your immune system naturally and keep it healthy? Just like a healthy diet, exercise can contribute to general good health and therefore to a healthy immune system. It may contribute even more directly by promoting good circulation, which allows the cells and substances of the immune system to move through the body freely and do their job efficiently.
Some scientists are trying to take the next step to determine whether exercise directly affects a person's susceptibility to infection. For example, some researchers are looking at whether extreme amounts of intensive exercise can cause athletes to get sick more often or somehow impairs their immune function. To do this sort of research, exercise scientists typically ask athletes to exercise intensively; the scientists test their blood and urine before and after the exercise to detect any changes in immune system components. While some changes have been recorded, immunologists do not yet know what these changes mean in terms of human immune response.
But these subjects are elite athletes undergoing intense physical exertion. What about moderate exercise for average people? Does it help keep the immune system healthy? For now, even though a direct beneficial link hasn't been established, it's reasonable to consider moderate regular exercise to be a beneficial arrow in the quiver of healthy living, a potentially important means for keeping your immune system healthy along with the rest of your body.
One approach that could help researchers get more complete answers about whether lifestyle factors such as exercise help improve immunity takes advantage of the sequencing of the human genome. This opportunity for research based on updated biomedical technology can be employed to give a more complete answer to this and similar questions about the immune system. For example, microarrays or "gene chips" based on the human genome allow scientists to look simultaneously at how thousands of gene sequences are turned on or off in response to specific physiological conditions — for example, blood cells from athletes before and after exercise. Researchers hope to use these tools to analyze patterns in order to better understand how the many pathways involved act at once.

Dear Selfology Relationships,
Our sincere gratitude for your understanding as we gather strengths together during this once-in-a-lifetime pandemic. A pandemic causes panic which wreaked havoc our picnics alike. However, humans are leaders because of our humanity codes and all the angels who are helpers of society, be remembered (reason.selfology.com).
Since the beginning of the pandemic, the Superfamily has been busy improving our various digital and other physical operational guidelines and processes, from better automation to less automation where needed. It was a universe given time for adjusting the co-creating plans. Visit the work by the Superfamily at Selfology.com (main) and Store.selfology.com (store) and we love your support.
While the government order stipulates a restarting date for our sector on May 19, 2020, businesses are first required to ensure measures are in line with keeping the curves down.
All energies are now converting into good inner-child alike energy and we are working hard on the restarting plans in compliance with various authorities including WorkSafeBC that was released on May 14, 2020.
On May 20, 2020, we have finalized all aspects of Phase A of the Selfology ReSTART Safety Planner 2020 (SRSP) for Medical and Spa Aesthetics Department (comprised of Medical Spa by Medical Aestheticians, Medical Aesthetics by MDs, and Essential Spa by Spa Therapists). We have test-driven the Phase-A plans ever since, beginning with our core-relationships and now expanding to more channels, and our "private" nature is proven well. *Phase-A coincides with Phase 2 of the BC Restart plan. The space use is limited during Phase A and therefore it will take longer to schedule everyone into our "staggered" schedule table.
We are essentially serving one-family at a time when they are in the common space. That means you will unlikely be running into another family in the South Granville space during your Phase-A appointments. *a new Family Package is now available for family coming out together to sharing this common space "privately" together. More at Family.selfology.com
Other departments as Hair (except Core-Hair) and ParaHealth Department will be ready in Phase B of the Selfology ReSTART Planner 2020. *Phase-B coincides with Phase 3 or 4 of the BC Restart plan.
We invite you to see and also hear (the lyrics of the song) in the Selfology ReSTART video for a glimpse of our initial restarting effort.
Since we began Selfology South Granville six years ago, our mantra has always been to “Reach by Hand, Heal by Heart, Evolving the Way with Ways”, and we are deeply grateful for the many Relatable Relationships we have come to know over the years, as we gather here to rejoice the betterment of our potentials, from skin, to hair, and to whatever wellness is defined for the years to come, with a strong focus on the spiritual wellness of oneself.
People concerned for the Community will embrace many reflections for years to come and it will require our inner strength more than ever. The Selfology Community have been co-creating spaces together we have come to know, tranquil spaces that are free-of and also fearless of judgement (e.g. from the disruptive-algorithm world), and space that is focused on Primary rather than Secondary differences and analyses (so your true self can come to fruition), and it is without want (in contrast with like; for example, a desire-want for three hundred pair of shoes and would any pair give one true pleasure-like in their Heart?), and in always enjoying a good old fashioned appreciation for life.
During the Phase A of our ReSTARTing Plan, we strongly feel Selfology is exceptionally safe - our location is private (*see Phase A door sign), has been by appointment only (since 2016), and 80% of our booking are by returning Relationships to name a few attributes in our effort to balance between restarting and reducing curves, and of our collective wellness - we are working hard for plans to restart other departments safely under subsequent phases of our SRSP (Selfology ReSTART Safety Planner), staying current with the fluid situation.
Restarting with an inner child excitement.
