Discussion of the Human Body Defense System
The human body is constantly challenged by bacteria, viruses, parasites, solar radiation, and pollution. Stress from emotional or physiological occurrences is other challenges to maintain a healthy body. Normally we are protected by the body defense system, the immune system, primarily the macrophage, and sufficiently comprehensive nutritional requirements to maintain health. An excess of negative challenges, however, can depress the body defense system, the immune system, and result in various illnesses from moderate to fatal.
Current medical practice is to treat the disease only. Bacterial infections are combated with antibiotics, viral infections with antiviral and parasitic infections with the limited antiparasitic pharmaceuticals available. Body defense system, immune system, depression caused by emotional stress is treated with antidepressants or tranquilizers. Immune depression caused by nutritional deficiency is seldom treated at all, even if recognized, and then by suggestion to consume a more healthy diet.
Medical training is so strongly emphasized toward 'treating the disease' that 'treating the patient' is generally overlooked. For example, all physicians know that oral antibiotics kill not only the pathogens, but also the resident bacteria in the gut that are required for digestion. They know that antibiotics cause gut irritation and deplete the nutritional content, especially the B-complex vitamins. It is exceedingly rare however, for a physician to prescribe consuming yogurt to reestablish the depleted flora of the gut or to prescribe a B-complex vitamin supplement to help overcome the nutritional deficit caused by the antibiotic. The disease is treated, not the patient.
Current medical training includes knowledge of the immune system and the macrophage is generally recognized as the most important component of the body defense system. It is recognized that an activated macrophage is absolutely essential to finally "cure" any disease. Consideration of the immune system is generally concentrated on the acquired immune response, primarily the development of vaccines or investigating methods of depressing the immune response in order to enhance the success or organ transplants. The innate immune system, truly the initiator and director of body defense response, which maintains the health of the body on an ever alert and constant basis is ignored.
Since disease only occurs when the immune system, body defense system is overwhelmed, it would appear obvious that it would be desirable to stimulate and activate and increase the activity of that natural defense system. Through either lack of knowledge of the "cellular intelligence" of the macrophage or the lack of awareness of methods of stimulating and activating the macrophage, treating the body defense system is not generally considered. Only the disease is treated, enhancing the natural defense mechanism is simply not practiced.
The activated macrophage releases a cascade of cytokines, which through feedback loops, identify the abnormal condition, communicate this back to the macrophage, which then activates the appropriate therapeutic defense response. If the abnormal condition is a tumor, TNF, tumor necrosis factor is produced. If the challenge is bacterial, the macrophage population is increased to engulf and Iyse the offending bacteria. Interferon in released to prevent bacterial and viral reproduction. Whatever abnormal condition exists, the macrophage acts to bring the body back to health. "Normal" is healthy; the macrophage is the wonderful "normalizer".
In any "abnormal" health condition, stimulation and activation of the bodies defense system is especially indicated. This can now be accomplished safely and effectively. A patented product, non-toxic, GRAS (generally recognized as safe by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration), with no reported side effects is now available in a unique, highly purified form. Literally hundreds of scientific reports attest to the ability of beta 1,3, 1,6, glucan from yeast to stimulate and activate the immune system. Originally developed by Bayer Pharmaceuticals, the beta 1,3,1,6, glucan manufacturing patent was acquired by inventor Byron Donzis, improved and patented again and further purified to be a completely unique product. Recent manufacturing breakthroughs have resulted in dramatic increases in purity and potency, Glucan 491 TM, which makes the product available at an affordable cost.
No medical claim is made for SurviveRxTM Protection Defense System which contains Glucan 491TM. The only claim is "for improved organism defense".
