Plants and your immune system
So what’s the connection between plants and your immune system? Cruciferous vegetables (broccoli, kale, cauliflower, cabbage, Brussels sprouts) all activate your immune system. Someone recently asked why I advocated a plant-based lifestyle. My response was short. “Because that’s where the evidence is.”
The research from major universities and medical centers supports plant-based food. For the past 20 years I have had the honor of witnessing results. With hypnosis help for diet change, clients stopped eating the Standard American Diet and focused on plant-based food. As a result, autoimmune diseases such as diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis and inflammatory bowel disease were reversed. They have referred to it as a “miracle.”
NutritionFacts.org, Michael Greger, M.D., “Maybe that’s why vegetable intake is associated with lower risk of inflammatory bowel diseases such as ulcerative colitis, whereas the more meaty Western diet is associated with higher risk of inflammatory bowel diseases. This may be because the activating receptors on our intestinal immune cells are basically sensors of plant-derived phytochemicals.
This discovery has been all exciting for the drug companies who are looking into Ah receptor active pharmaceuticals. ‘“However,”’ as one research team at Cambridge concluded, ‘“rather than developing additional anti-inflammatory drugs, changing diets which are currently highly processed and low in vegetable content, may be a more cost effective way towards health and well-being.”’ Read Our Immune System Uses Plants To Activate Gut Protection
