September

These changes in gene activity lead, that less immune cells react strongly to the body’s hormone cortisol, which dampens usually immune reactions. In September 2009 you could read that depression can affect the survival of cancer patients. We know that depression lead to a change of hormone metabolism and the activity of the immune system. So who wants to have a strong and powerful immune system, which must pay attention also to his mental state. In the orthomolecular medicine many micronutrients are known, the both Act regulating the immune system and the nervous system. Here a few examples: Vitamin C stimulates the cellular and humoral immune system and is involved in the formation of Messenger substances of the nervous system.

Vitamin B6 is also used for the synthesis of Neurotransmitters required and has also an important role for the immune competence, in particular for the proliferation of lymphocytes. Zinc is necessary for the functioning of various neuro-transmitter systems (glycine, GABA, glutamate) and has a central importance for the proper functioning of the immune system, for example for the activity of NK cells, the synthesis of thymus hormones etc. Glycine is an absorbing nerve neurotransmitter with calming and relaxing effect. Glycine has been proven also has an anti-inflammatory effect. Already, the lack of a single micro-nutrient, which include the vitamins, minerals, trace elements and amino acids, can interfere with the immune competence as well as the mental state of mind. The supply of lack micronutrients can significantly improve, however, the function of the nervous system and the immune competence. To find out what micro-nutrients in the deficit are and to initiate an optimum micro nutrient therapy, a micro-nutrient analysis of blood is essential. The Diagnostic Centre for mineral analysis and spectroscopy offers a Laboradiagnostik for the nervous system, the DCMS-neuro check, which can be supplemented with other individual parameters of the immune system.
