Immune System Support treatment

Description
Our immune system is under a constant assault by bacteria, viruses, microbes, toxins and parasites. Supporting this vital system starts with the basics: regular exercise, sufficient sleep, a healthy balanced diet, stress management and good hygiene habits.
Causes
The Immune System can falter due to sickness, malnutrition, poor hygiene, or many other causes.
Prevention
Good preventative measures are best for supporting the immune system, and include getting vaccinated, maintaining good exercise, eating, and sleeping habits, and taking supplements such as Vitamin C and Zinc to help support a healthy immune system.
Common Symptoms
A suppressed immune system can increase susceptibility to any contagious disease, causing the person to become sick.
Rare Symptoms
More rare are auto-immune disorders, which essentially occur when the immune system attacks its own healthy cells, mistaking them for invaders. Also, the HIV virus causes unique problems within the immune system.
Traditional Treatment
Conventional treatments for a suppressed immune system usually involve the administration of antibiotics in order the combat the afflicting infection. These might include Azithromycin, Abacavir Sulfate, Actimmune, Atripla, Efavirenz, Epivir, or Nascobal.
Alternative Treatment
There are a number of herbs and other supplements that are known to boost the immune system. Popular ones include Echinacea, Vitamin C, Flaxseed Oil, and Zinc.
