Can a healthy diet lower your immune system?



Question by Nami: Can a healthy diet lower your immunities or immune system?
Around november of last year, i switched over from a disgusting junk food thriving, soda drinking, chain smoking living habit to a cleaner more exercise and healthy eating habit. Before i switched, i got sick maybe once a year. Ever since i changed things, I’ve caught several colds, and a very mild case of strep. Basically what i’m asking is can a healthier diet put you at risk for sickness or common viruses?

Best answer:

    No…I don’t believe a healthy diet can put you at greater risk for sickness…but….it MAY be possible that simply CHANGING your habits may temporarily reduce your immune strength until your body adapts to the change. See….increased stress CAN lower your immunities…and if the new diet is a source of stress initially…that could make a slight difference in your ability to fight off infection.

    I don’t think switching to a healthier diet lowers your immune system. Chances are, your body is still adjusting on your new diet. But sooner you’ll body will be healthier. Consulting a doctor is an option, for you to be sure. Health is Wealth remember?

    Hey, I recommend that you try Hypnotherapy!
    No, I’m not kidding you on this. I used to weigh 198 lbs and my height is only 5’8″ – for my height and with that kind of weight I’m really obese! I tried the “Master clense” and other diet recipes, and I even watched Richard Simmons videos but they didn’t helped me at all!

    I tried going to a gym with a strict diet once and within a week later, I stopped going to gym and started eating more than before. It brought me back to where I started again. I am sure you happen to experience it like me.

    One day, I was watching CNN news and they interviewed this hypotherapist guy, his name is Steve. I myself do not believe in hypnotherapy but the hypnotherapist was rather convincing so I visited his site (http://www.betterlivingwithhypnosis.tk/) and he has a “Weight Loss Powerpack”. I bought the part 2 “Weight Loss Powerpack 2″ which consist of Weight Loss, Stop Binge Eating and I Love To Exercise. It is more affordable than a month of subscription to the gym and having those strict diets.

    The first few days I realized my eating dropped significantly and my weight dropped a little. A week later, I begin to feel motivated to exercise and such! His hypnotherapy works! It has been a month already since I bought his program and I already lost 18.3 lbs! I recommend you give it a shot!
