Our lifestyle keeps altering with time. Time is a factor that changes not only technology, but also our bodies. With time, people grow, change, succeed, prosper, migrate, etc. Life will go on; and we should go with its flow. Our lifestyle is one of the prominent factors that affect our health. Living a healthy, stable and an active lifestyle may seem tough, but it is not impossible.
We venture into various professions to grow and succeed. With every profession, we have noticed a change in environment, staff, work culture, and last but not the least, eating habits. Every profession has something to offer; something to sacrifice. But, life will always fling challenges at you, irrespective of whether you are prepared for them or not.
We need to be strong, internally as well as externally. For external strength, you have physical abilities. But for internal strength, you have the Immune System. It won’t matter if you are strong externally or not, but it would surely matter if you are weak from within. The Immune System always protects you from harm. It has the ability to fight all sorts of viruses and defends them in order to safeguard your fitness and health.
The immune system, which is made up of special cells, proteins, tissues, and organs, defends people against germs and microorganisms every day. In most cases, the immune system does a great job of keeping people healthy and preventing infections.
The immune system is made up of a network of cells, tissues, and organs that work together to protect the body. One of the important cells involved are white blood cells that seek out and destroy disease-causing organisms or substances.
The Immune System is different for every individual. It is not necessary that your immune system works identically as the others. There are some diseases which you may acquire and nobody else, and vice-versa. Some people may remain fit all the time, whereas some keep falling ill most of the time.
Our immune system gets habituated to fighting germs such as common cold. But, for infants, this isn’t the case. They will catch a cold faster than adults because their body has never interacted with the virus causing the flu.
You may also come across something known as Auto-Immune Disorders (AI) which means that the body’s immune system mistakenly attacks the body's healthy organs and tissues as though they were foreign invaders. Some of the AI Disorders include Psoriasis, Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA), Lupus, Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis, Scleroderma, Eczema, Crohn’s Disease, Multiple Sclerosis (MS), etc.
CBD or Cannabidiol is known to be effective in treating autoimmune deficiencies because the cannabinoids present in CBD act as regulators of the Immune System. They can bring an over or under-reacting immune system back into balance.
- Immune system modulation
- Decrease in inflammations
- Digestive System Assistance
Cannabidiol may decrease chronic pain, inflammation, and spasms associated with Psoriasis, Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA), Lupus, Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis, Scleroderma, Eczema, Crohn’s Disease, Multiple Sclerosis (MS), etc.
CBD that is derived from the hemp plant is anti-psychotic, anti-depressant, anti-inflammatory, and anti-oxidant in nature. CBD contains cannabinoids that interact with the human body’s naturally formed Endocannabinoid System (ECS) which consists of cannabinoid receptors (CB1 and CB2) to produce effective results.
CB1 receptors are mainly present in the nerve cells in the brain, spinal cord, but they are also found in some peripheral organs and tissues such as the spleen, white blood cells, endocrine gland and parts of the reproductive, gastrointestinal and urinary tracts.
CB2 receptors are mainly found on white blood cells, in the tonsils and in the spleen.
CBD has been found to modulate the immune system instead of suppressing it. Cannabidiol also slows down T-cell production and suppresses immune system memory, meaning that CBD could cut down on the likelihood of future autoimmune attacks.
CBD can also suppress auto-immune conditions by decreasing systemic inflammations without causing major side-effects. CBD-infused products are available in various forms like tincture oils, balms, lotions, gummies, honey, tea, coffee, etc.
CBD is legal only in the United States. It is not recommended for use for people below the age of 18. Women, who are pregnant, nursing, or suffering from any other medical condition, must consult their physician before using CBD. It is advised not to overdose on CBD. Also, avoid taking CBD and Warfarin at the same time. Store it in a cool and dry place, away from direct sunlight.
