An immune balance roundup: what’s being talked about
Posted Feb 25 2011 1:42pm
The end of the month and the end (hopefully) of winter make it a good time to lay down some links and commentary to some of the news and community discussion on immune health and balanced immune function that’s been circulating lately:
A nurse writes a health column in the Concord (NH) Monitor about balance in the body. She believes “people who who receive naturopathic care usually have fewer acute illnesses because they have stronger immune systems and those with chronic illnesses see a lessening or even remission of their problems…The approach in naturopathic medicine is to help the body achieve and maintain balance and thus prevent further problems. Unlike mainstream medicine where drugs are primarily given to treat a specific symptom and are “anti- ,” the formulations used in naturopathic medicine are “pro- ” and used to balance the body.” Hmmmm. That’s worth thinking about.
