What Are Some Holistic Therapies for Optimal Immune Function?

Holistic Therapies for Optimal Immune Function

Immune SupportOptimal immune function depends on both our innate and acquired immunity. Genetics may play a role, however, it is our environment that is most important. A healthy environment will be low in toxic exposures such as pesticides, chemicals, heavy metals, plastics, molds, and EMFs. It will also be rich in ‘healthy’ exposures which help to support a healthy gut microbiome.

Nutrient-dense and minimally processed foods, exercise, sunlight, time in nature (grounding), restful sleep, and nurturing mental, emotional, and spiritual practices provide the raw materials for our bodies to create and maintain a healthy and balanced immune system. Continue on to learn more about detoxification practices and nutrients necessary for optimal immune responses. Thanks for reading this blog article written by Dr. Kathy Veon which answers the question – “WHAT ARE SOME HOLISTIC THERAPIES FOR OPTIMAL IMMUNE FUNCTION?” and we hope you gain a lot of useful information from it. 

Detox for Healthy Immune Function

WHAT ARE SOME HOLISTIC THERAPIES FOR OPTIMAL IMMUNE FUNCTION? Our environment is full of toxic exposures that can block the metabolic pathways necessary for proper detoxification, cell cleaning (autophagy), and maintaining healthy immune responses. If we can reduce the toxic environmental burdens on the body through detoxification, then immune function, hormone balance, and cellular health improve. A simple 30-day detox can be very helpful to restore normal immune responses. You may order the protocol from Fullscript here:


Nutrients in this protocol include:

  • Silymarin (Silybin Beta Milk Thistle)
  • Glycine
  • Methionine
  • Choline

Nutrients for a Healthy Immune Foundation

Additional nutrients, herbs, and foods that support healthy immune function include:


WHAT ARE SOME HOLISTIC THERAPIES FOR OPTIMAL IMMUNE FUNCTION? Genetics can play a role in how well we can detoxify environmental toxins, and also our immune response to environmental factors such as mold, bacteria, viruses, high histamine foods, wheat, and gluten. Nutrigenomics is the scientific study of the interaction between nutrition and genes.

A nutrigenomics test can offer personalized information to help heal or prevent chronic illnesses. The Immune / Autoimmune / Inflammatory Panel from GX Sciences tests for 30 gene variants and can help determine the underlying causes for many immune and inflammatory-related issues including:

  • Breathing Disorders
  • Chronic Infections
  • Skin Disorders
  • Joint Disorders
  • Inflammatory Bowel Diseases
  • Chronic Dry Eyes and/or Dry Mouth
  • Immune Disorders affecting Thyroid
  • Chronic Fatigue
  • Immune Weakness
  • Any Auto-Immune Disease


WHAT ARE SOME HOLISTIC THERAPIES FOR OPTIMAL IMMUNE FUNCTION? Healthy living practices such as spending more time in nature and reducing exposures to man-made EMFs are essential to improving immune function. Published research has shown for many decades the destructive influences of EMFs on living beings. 10 Steps to Reduce Wireless Radiation is an excellent resource for making the changes needed to mitigate exposures and reduce the oxidative stress and inflammation that EMFs cause.

Grounding or ‘Earthing’ is another way to reset and recharge the body for better sleep, immune function, and overall healing.
