The immune system protects you from outside intruders. It is designed to defend the body against foreign substances such as bacteria, viruses, fungi, parasites and toxins. This immune system is extremely strong, but also very complex. And it has to be, because your body is constantly exposed to germs and other harmful substances.
At the moment there is a lot to do around the #coronavirus, a virus for which there is no vaccine yet, but which you can arm yourself against. Not only now, but it actually needs to be integrated into your lifestyle. Photobiomodulation is a wonderful method for this, which is growing enormously and has many positive effects.
To protect your whole body against intruders, your blood, skin, intestines, airways and lymphatic system work together. The skin is an important organ within the physical barrier that ensures that harmful substances do not enter the body. The mucous membranes in the intestines and airways also have a protective role. Just like the heartburn and saliva or the moisture and enzymes in the eyes. They all try to exclude or kill pathogens before they infect the body.
The general defence
The general immune system, as the name suggests, does not focus specifically on a single pathogen, but on all the foreign substances that are present in your body. Several white blood cells *1) play the main role in this defence. They form a rapid defence, which makes no distinction between the types of intruders.
Your blood is the key to boosting your immune system.
Blood gives you life. It constantly flows through our bodies to supply oxygen, nutrients and other substances to tissues and to dispose of waste products. In addition, blood provides defense against intruders, blood clotting in case of injury and regulation of body temperature. The white blood cells are therefore essential to protect you against intruders!
Laser light energy of the red spectrum stimulates the mitochondria (energy factories) in the cells, including those of the white blood cells. In this way they directly stimulate cellular energy and improve the functioning of the function of the total immune system.
It is perfectly logical that the Laeq, by means of laser light, strengthens the immune system and reduces the chance of becoming ill (Dr. H. Franke Phd).
The specific immune system is the defence that you develop throughout your life. The system focuses on a specific pathogen each time. For this purpose it uses specialized immune cells*2) from the blood. These specific cells ensure that when it is known to the intruder, action is taken quickly. This is also the principle behind immunisation and vaccination. However, contact with a pathogen is necessary first.
Your immune system changes during your life. With age, the effectiveness of the immune system decreases. An older body is less able to respond to a new pathogen. The older body also produces fewer antibodies in response to an antigen and the antibodies are also less able to bind to an antigen. This may explain why older people are more susceptible to infections such as pneumonia and flu.
Boost your immune system with photobiomodulation or red light
So it is very important to keep or make your general immune system, resistance, strong. And that is now possible with the light energy therapy of Laeq. Your immune system is stimulated in a completely natural way so that viruses and pathogenic bacteria have considerably less chance. Especially when you reach a higher age the Laeq is a wonderful method to increase the quality of your life.
*1) The monocytes, a type of white blood cells develop into macrophages: a type of vacuums of the immune system that absorb bacteria, foreign cells and damaged and dead cells. Several granulocytes (neutrophilic and eosinophilic) can also absorb substances, but also contain granules (granules in the cytoplasm) that release enzymes. And these enzymes help to kill and digest substances. Then there are basophilic granulocytes in which the granula contains histamine – a substance that plays a role in allergic reactions – and natural-killer cells that can directly destroy other cells.
*2) Lymphocytes are the main white blood cells involved in the specific immune system. The cell membrane of lymphocytes contains receptors that fit a specific protein, antigen, on the outside of a pathogen. This allows a lymphocyte to recognise a pathogen and to react quickly and powerfully when it ‘meets’ it. Every lymphocyte has one type of receptor, if the antigen of a pathogen does not fit, nothing happens. Lymphocytes can live for years and sometimes even decades.
There are B lymphocytes, T lymphocytes and natural-killer cells. B cells are formed in the bone marrow and have receptors to bind antigens. When this happens, the B cell grows into a plasma cell that then produces antibodies. These antibodies protect the body by helping other immune cells absorb antigens, inactivating toxic substances, and directly attacking bacteria and viruses. Each antibody consists of two parts. One part specializes in binding to a specific antigen. The other part determines the class of the antibody: IgM, IgG, IgA, IgE or IgD.
The T-cells are produced in the thymus (thymus) and learn to distinguish the body’s own from foreign substances. Mature T-cells are formed and stored in the spleen, bone marrow and lymph nodes, among others. There are several T lymphophytes: cytotoxic T cells (kill foreign or abnormal cells), T help cells (help B lymphocytes to recognise and produce antibodies) and T supressor cells (help end the immune response).
