1. Immune system – antibodies

Antibodies are constantly formed in the human organism because we are permanently in contact with pathogens. As a rule, we just don’t realize it because our immune system successfully fights them.

The expression of antibody formation depends on the virulence, the amount of pathogens and the millieu in the human body.

If a severely weakened organism comes into contact with very dangerous and very many pathogens, then consequently the amount of antibodies formed is very high.

If a very healthy person comes into contact with a few weak pathogens, the human organism will hardly consider forming antibodies at all.

In order to develop a good level of antibodies, it is important to have regular contact with weak pathogens.

Therefore, I recommend avoiding any kind of disinfectants in private use, for example, just rinse carrots thoroughly and simply eat the light dirt in the grooves.

Children should be allowed to play outside a lot and it’s perfectly okay if they put their dirty hands in their mouths.

Contact with infection-free people is absolutely desirable, as is kissing with your partner, and for people with a very good immune system, contact with people who have a mild cold can also be more of a workout for their own immune system.

Vaccinations according to the principle of origin for the particularly dangerous pathogens are highly recommended.

It is essential to avoid contact with dead organisms, spoiled food, so-called measles parties, people with strong symptoms of infection, and modern vaccinations with torganisms or mRNA – vaccines.

2. Immune system – cold adaptation

Cold adaptation or cold adaptation is, as the name suggests, the human organism’s ability to adapt to cold.

Why is this so important?

One of the most common triggers of infections during the annual cold season is actually mild hypothermia. Hypothermic conditions weaken the body on the one hand, and on the other hand, lower body temperature makes pathogens feel much more comfortable.

Most pathogens can multiply best in a warm milieu. But if it’s too warm, then again, that’s also detrimental to these pathogens.

Many pathogens can no longer survive at 38-40 degrees Celsius. Therefore, the human organism develops fever depending on the type of pathogen.

However, the normal body temperature of 36.5 degrees Celsius is already significantly less favorable for the multiplication of pathogens than below 35 degrees Celsius in the case of hypothermia.

What significance does cold adaptation have for the immune system?

You can look at cold adaptation from two perspectives.

The cold-adapted person generally feels less physically weakened under the influence of cold and, above all, feels much better mentally.

On the other hand, cold-adapted people are better able to maintain an optimal body temperature when exposed to cold than people who are not cold-adapted.

How can you train cold adaptation and strengthen the immune system?

Just as you shouldn’t inoculate into the human body in the winter, you shouldn’t start building cold adaptation in the winter. The body is, as in other mammals, in a kind of hibernation, which is controlled by the influence of solar radiation.

Starting to train cold adaptation in winter could, in the worst case, lead to severe infections. The optimal time for this is the spring to summer.The procedure is quite similar to vaccinations according to the principle of origin.

Just as the virulence of the pathogen is minimally increased from vaccination to vaccination, the cold adaptation minimally increases the cold to which one is exposed from day to day.

You can do this with cold showers, by initially only the legs cool shower and then eventually the whole body, where you then again also increasingly increases the duration.

But you can also gradually adapt in everyday life. First you go out in a T-shirt when it’s 20 degrees, then at some point you try to be able to handle the 18 degree days in a T-shirt, and at some point even days when it’s only 17 degrees.

You reach your goal little by little, but you never run the risk of getting severe infections.

3. Immune system – the environment

The environment is defined as the living conditions that pathogens find in our body.

If the living conditions for pathogens are very good, they will multiply explosively. If the living conditions for pathogens are bad, then they will not be able to manifest themselves in the human organism.

This topic will be covered in great detail shortly in another post.

For example represent oxygen deficiency and hyperacidity conditions provide a very good environment for pathogens.

4. Immune system – health-promoting bacteria

The health-promoting bacteria have an extremely high position in our immune system.

In addition to their function as enzyme builders in the intestine, another important task of health-promoting bacteria is to protect us from pathogens.

They are found in the intestine, where they form the intestinal flora. They are found in the area of the sexual organs, in the nasal mucous membranes, the eyes, the entire respiratory tract, and even our skin is completely covered with health-promoting bacteria.

They thus form a natural protective shield.

They represent the first chain of defense in the immune system. Therefore, it is important that this chain of defense is intact and closed, so that a large part of the pathogens can already be warded off.

The destroyers of the health-promoting bacteria

a) Antibiotics

Antibiotics are neither useful nor necessary in the vast majority of cases. They are now also frequently used in viral infections to combat any pathogenic bacteria that may be involved. Often, the ratio of pathogens to health-promoting bacteria then tips completely, which can lead to a sharp increase in the mortality rate in the case of viral infections.

Before antibiotics are used, it is imperative that differential diagnosis be made and antibiotics be targeted only to specific bacteria.

Broad-spectrum antibiotics or even their use in viral infections can, under certain circumstances, significantly worsen the course of infection.

b) Disinfectant

An article has already been published about disinfectants. In short, they play an important role in hospital hygiene and medical facilities. However, they should be avoided at all costs in private and public spaces. They are a real killer of health-promoting bacteria.

Inhalation of disinfectants is considered particularly dangerous. If disinfectants are detected with the help of the sense of smell, this room should be left as quickly as possible.

c) Chemical detergents and fabric softeners

Health-promoting bacteria hate fabric softeners and chemical detergents. Nevertheless, most people are exposed to these stresses on a daily basis.

Through targeted marketing, we have become very fixated on chemical detergents and fabric softeners. However, it pollutes the environment, the wallet and also harms our health-promoting bacteria. But there are plenty of alternatives.

It is recommended, for example, to use a so-called washing ball and with organic stain remover for particularly stubborn stains. The laundry becomes clean and odorless.

There are certainly also many inferior imitations from China. However, very good washing results are achieved with the original.

I also rely on purely natural substances for care products. I prefer to use care products from Channoine from which I also use the vital substances.

The fact that these are concentrates, of which you only need very little, means that the price is also acceptable compared to chemical shower baths and care products.

There are even purely ecological alternatives for dishwashing detergents.

If you do enough research and search the Internet, you will always find sufficient alternatives to chemical detergents, chemical care products, fabric softeners and conventional dishwashing detergents.

d) Drying of the mucous membranes

A factor that is certainly also underestimated is the drying out of the mucous membranes. Examples may include hours of cycling without cycling glasses, so-called snoring devices, or extremely dry poor air quality.

e) Mechanical influences

This point is deliberately kept very general.

This includes, among other things, psychologically induced picking of the nose, frequent rubbing of the eyes, incorrectly treated wounds or frequent swabs, especially if these are not carried out by medical professionals.

For example, the so-called olfactory epithelium can be destroyed very quickly, which represents an important protective barrier for the penetration of pathogens into the brain. It is also the basis for the sense of smell.

f) The milieu

The environment, which has already been mentioned separately as a pillar of the immune system, can of course also be a destroyer of health-promoting bacteria at the same time if it is very bad.

4.2. How do you promote health-promoting bacteria?

The health-promoting bacteria are promoted by eliminating their destroyers. If you have knowingly been heavily exposed to these destroyers, especially antibiotics and disinfectants, then it is advisable with the aid of a supplementation of health-promoting bacteria or in the form of several weeks of alkaline fasting to increase their number again.

5. Immune system – white blood cells

White blood cells represent the second line of defense in the immune system.

They can be roughly divided into two categories: scavenger cells and memory cells.

The phagocytes attack pathogens directly. Depending on the type and protective mechanisms of the pathogens, they sometimes find this easier and sometimes more difficult.

The memory cells are there to collect and store precise information about the pathogens. They thus provide the basis for the formation of antibodies.

A lack of white blood cells usually occurs as a result of poor general health, particularly with regard to intestinal health. In a few cases, rare gene effects may also be responsible.

An excess of white blood cells, on the other hand, occurs when pathogens have manifested themselves in the human organism over a longer period of time.

However, if infections are not detected or treated over very long periods of time, then a white blood cell deficiency can develop from the excess of white blood cells due to exhaustion.

It is important to emphasize that white blood cells do not attack other cells in the human organism. Further information can be found in the article “The truth about autoimmune diseases.

6. Immune system – lymphatic system

The lymphatic system represents the third chain of defense and comes into play during particularly severe infections.

The main functions of the lymphatic system are the removal of swelling, for example after surgery, and the filtering of toxins that under no circumstances should enter the bloodstream.

In severe courses of infection, there is often swelling of the lymph nodes.

Lymph nodes are able to filter metastases, dyes and toxins. This tries to bind it permanently, at least as long as its capacity allows.

During infections, the lymph nodes act as a buffer system.

If the pathogen load is very high, parts of the pathogens are temporarily bound by the lymph nodes. As a result, the white blood cells, antibodies, and health-promoting bacteria get outnumbered.

If they now manage to eliminate the remaining pathogens, the pathogens are slowly released from the lymph nodes. These are then also eliminated.

A permanent binding of pathogens, on the other hand, as is the case with toxins and metastases, is not conceivable.

The amount of infections in the course of a lifetime would otherwise at some point completely exceed the capacity of the lymph nodes.

A well-functioning lymphatic system depends on the general state of health.

The most important factors are the absence of toxins, color particles and heavy metals and secondly sufficient exercise.

During manual lymphatic drainage, as part of physiotherapy, I could clearly see over years that the lymphatic systems of athletes were significantly better developed than those of non-athletes.


Pathogens are not evil, but nature’s tool to decompose dead organisms and bring extremely weakened organisms to a standstill.

Serious epidemics occur where there are miserable hygienic conditions, no clean drinking water is available, or dead living creatures are decomposing, as is often found after natural disasters, in war zones, or in developing countries with great famines.

Extremely dangerous pathogens that threaten to destroy the entire human race do not emerge naturally out of nowhere.

Over-mortalities in non-crisis areas occur when the pillars of the immune system are damaged. Furthermore, psychosomatic factors play a major role. Anxiety and panic then lead to the so-called noncebo effect. There are countless studies on the noncebo effect.

Extremely dangerous pathogens can only be created if humans combat them with massive amounts of chemicals. The scientific basis for this is provided by the work of Charles Darwin.

It is important for everyone to work on the pillars of the immune system, to avoid great fears and to think positively.

Furthermore, crisis areas are to be avoided, especially if one has not been immunized against the pathogens there before. It is generally recommended to keep a little more distance from people with clear symptoms of infection and, if you yourself have such an infection, to simply not get quite so close to your fellow human beings.

If all dams should break, the probably most effective treatment method of infections is the oil pulling cure with coconut oil after Hildegard von Bingen.
