Strengthening your immune system can give you a strong advantage in keeping your body strong and healthy. In these delicate days we are living, it is very important to stay strong both inside and outside.
Hyperbaric oxygenation as a treatment to strengthen the immune system
Hyperbaric Medicine can help your immune system by activating phagocytosis and modifying the overall effect of the immune system without changing the state of the leukocytes or their subpopulations. In no case does treatment with hyperbaric oxygenation modify the state of the leukocytes or their subpopulations.
What is the immune system?
The immune system is the body’s natural defense against infections, such as bacteria and viruses. Through a well-organized reaction, your body attacks and destroys the infectious organisms that invade it. These foreign bodies are called antigens.The Arthritis Foundation
The immune system is our body’s defense, the one that protects us from the outside world.
Signs that defenses are weakened
- Dry eyes
- Usual tiredness
- Nausea and vomiting
- Skin stains
- Hair loss
How to strengthen the immune system
- Exercising regularly. It is recommended to be aerobic with a moderate intensity, to avoid overexertion.
- quitting tobacco. One of the main harmful effects of smoking on the body is the lowering of defences.
- Follow a balanced diet. For this, it is best that our diet includes whole grains, fruits, vegetables, legumes, vegetable proteins, and animal proteins in moderation.
- A good rest. It is during quality sleep that our cells are repaired.
- Hyperbaric oxygenation. It helps to activate phagocytosis.
Effect of Hyperbaric Medicine on the Immune System
The Spanish Society of Hyperbaric Medicine includes hyperbaric oxygenation as Preventive Medicine, that is, it acts not only on patients suffering from a specific disease, but it is also very beneficial for people who want to revitalize their organism, stay healthy and increase their quality of life.
This is because by definition, hyperbaric oxygen is a normalizer and regulator of all biological functions:
- Strengthens the immune system
- Tonifies the skin
- Anti-aging effect
- Assists in recovery from injuries and surgical processes
- Prevents hypoxia, which is the underlying factor in almost all illnesses
what treatments with hyperbaric chamber obtain in the patient is to increase the bactericidal activity of the white blood cells, which avoids or fights the possible infections.
The immune system as a shield against Coronavirus
One of the great benefits now of keeping our defenses strong is to deal with the coronavirus, as we will be able to reduce the rate of infection exponentially if our immune system is prepared. Of course, this type of treatment is a complement to the current health regulations established by the Ministry of Health, such as the use of masks and keeping the distance from social security to avoid contagion.
