The purpose of this site is to collect lab research by medical doctors about herbs that are proven to treat illnesses and counter the false attacks on herbs by the medical industry and false claims by alternative medicine. I let the science tell the facts.

Immune System

The immune system is not a cause of disease. If it were I would list it under causes of disease. Most medical people would say it is a cause of disease, however that is not the case. It is a robotic function that is regulated by the hypocretin system not an in dependant organ or function. Thus its malfunction is the result of disease or improper function of other organs. Thus is is like diabetes which is actually also the result of other organs malfunction. Everyone blames the immune system and it is not the immune system that has a problem it is the hypocretin system and it is compromised by oxidative stress and other functions. To help understand this view the picture below.

See scientific reports about herbs that can aid the immune system at bottom of page.

When we have an injury such as a sprained ankle the injury sends a signal to the brain like a 911 call. The brain sends a first response similar to a fire engine to start removing debris and clean up the scene.

This response in the immune system is the process of killing damaged cells.

The immune system does not think and only does what it it instructed to do.

The brain sends a second signal to the hypocretin system and it prepares a plan of action to be sent to the immune system.

If the hypocretin system is not working correctly a plan is not sent and the instructions to the immune system to start healing and stop killing cells is not sent.

The process of the immune system continuing to kill cells is what is called autoimmune problems. It is not the fault of the immune system but the hypocretin system which in turn is the fault of Metabolic Stress

Do you know how important your immune system is? Did you know that eight major diseases are not stand alone diseases but the result of an out of control immune system? Did you know that Metabolic Stress is the result and the cause of immune problems. These eight diseases are a result of immune problems. 1-Diabetes, 2-Heart disease, 3-Cancer, 4-Autoimmune diseases (Lupis, Multiple Sclerosis, and Rheumatoid Arthritis), 5-Alzheimer's, Parkinson's & Lou Gehrig's Disease, 6-some Kidney Diseases, 7-Inflammatory Bowel, Ulcerative Colitis & Chohn's Disease, and 8-Endometriosis & Some PCOS are the eight major diseases caused by an improper functioning immune system.

The most important thing to understand about the chart below is that when the immune system is not functioning correctly it is because of Oxidative Stressor sometines referred to as Metabolic Mayhem

Did you know that it may be that nothing is wrong with any ones immune system but rather with the Hypocretin system? The immune system is like a remote controlled car and only follows the controls given to it by the hypocretin system. Think of the immune system as an army of soldiers who go to battle following orders given to them. The immune system has no brain or means to think or react from anything other than the orders given to it.

Here is how it works! When you get an injury the injury sends a signal to the brain and the brain tells the immune system to go to the injury and kill the damaged cells. The immune system responds immediately like a first response ambulance and this function is to kill damaged cells. It is a vital and proper first response. The brain also send two other signals one to the hypocretin system and the other directly to the adrenals. They then create a blue print of chemical instructions telling the immune system to stop killing indiscriminately and what to do to repair the injury.


Just as the immune/hypocretin systems are the root cause of the eight diseases they too are caused by another disease called Oxidative stress. To repair the immune system one must reverse Oxidative stress. See also our page on How to repair the immune system.

In 1993 and 1994 I visited two different doctors and ask them the same question, "Something is wrong with my immune system what can you do for me?"  Each gave the same answer,"We know nothing about the immune system, we can do nothing to treat the immune system, we have no way to test the immune system, and we only treat diseases or symptoms that we can find imperial proof of its presence.  If we cannot prove it with a microscope, blood or lab test for us it does not exist."

I marvel that the most important defense in our body is considered by most doctors to have no significance and they know nothing about it.  It gets worse, most doctors when a patient asks about the immune system is diagnosed as a hypochondriac.  Doctors are taught that 20 to 50% of all patients are  hypochondriacs.

Currently doctors are becoming more aware of the immune system and new research is proving its significance in causing the eight diseases.

Many alternative health professionals as well as medical researchers are studying the relationship between the immune system and the environment. Toxic chemicals pesticides, and even treated drinking water are being found to affect the immune system. Death incident statistics are showing a longer life span yet immune system diseases have greatly increased in the last 30 years.

The following diseases are either the result of or cause of a dysfunctional immune system.

Aluminum toxicity Candidia
Alzheimer's Fibromyalgia
Metallothionein Lyme
Celiac Chronic Fatigue
Lupus Stress
Arthritis Diabetes
allergies rheumatoid arthritis
asthma psoriasis
erythematosus pancreatitis
Aids pneumonia
endocarditis septicemia
atherosclerosis myocardial infarction
multiple sclerosis Crohn's disease
septic shock osteoporosis

1. "Herbal remedies based on Echinacea, Brahmi, or Ashwagandha can enhance immune function by increasing immunoglobulin production. Furthermore, these herbal medicines might regulate antibody production by augmenting both Th1 and Th2 cytokine production."

2. "...ginseng and Salviae play a role as mucosal adjuvants against influenza virus as well as immuno-modulators during influenza virus infection."
