What Is Attacking Our Immune System and How Can We Stop It?

Doctor Explains How Stress Affects Our Immunities

BROOKINGS, SD -- (Marketwire) -- 03/04/10 -- Poor diet and lack of sleep can make us feel fatigued and run-down, but what most people don't know is how basic stressors can tax our immune system, making us vulnerable to diseases and conditions we never thought were related.

That's what Dr. Sherrill Sellman, a Naturopathic Doctor, thinks people need to understand in order to safeguard their health.

"We leave our immune systems open to attack every day by doing things we shouldn't," she said. "We eat way too much sugar and refined carbohydrates, we don't get enough sleep, we don't get enough sun and we take antibiotics at the first sniffle. Factors that impair the immune system include nutrient deficiencies, contaminated air, water and food, unhealthful lifestyles and too much exposure to harmful microbes. Sometimes the result is a condition that we don't even realize came about because of our poor habits."

Dr. Sellman knows that all these behaviors could lead to a wide variety of conditions, including:

--  The Common Cold -- An overactive immune system is useless against the
    modern strains of colds, so the best way to avoid it is still keeping
    your immunities strong.

--  Arthritis -- Rheumatory arthritis is an autoimmune disease. Stress on
    the immune system makes it hyperactive, and it begins to attack the
    joints.

--  Asthma -- The respiratory system is vulnerable to a compromised immune
    system because infections can reside in the lungs longer when a person's
    immunities are weakened.

--  All Chronic Illness -- A weakened immune system plays a role in all
    chronic illnesses, including cancer, diabetes and cardiovascular
    disease. When it is damaged by poor nutrition, lack of sleep and undue
    stress, it places people in a higher risk group for these conditions.

"A strong immune system is essential for health," she added. "One element I have found helpful with my patients is a colostrum-based ingredient called Immunel, which is found in natural health supplements. Immunel (www.thenaturesgift.com) is a targeted immune product that activates the innate immune system within 3 minutes of consumption. Studies have concluded it is effective in promoting immune system health."

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Digital Transformation: Preparing Cloud & IoT Security for the Age of Artificial Intelligence. As automation and artificial intelligence (AI) power solution development and delivery, many businesses need to build backend cloud capabilities. Well-poised organizations, marketing smart devices with AI and BlockChain capabilities prepare to refine compliance and regulatory capabilities in 2018. Volumes of health, financial, technical and privacy data, along with tightening compliance requirements by...
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
