The GenoLine Immune Liquid Check gives you information about the effectiveness of your immune system
The GenoLine Immune Liquid Check gives you information about the power of your defenses - for a vital and resilient immune system!
Sometimes it's almost maddening in the cold, wet season: didn't you just get over your last cold? Doesn't the smell of countless cups of chamomile tea still hang in the air - and the supply of paper handkerchiefs is hardly replenished? But yet again a flu-like infection announces itself, accompanied by the well-known annoying symptoms: the voice hoarse, the throat rough, the swallowing difficulties spoil every glass of water, the paranasal sinuses run up and exhaustion, chills and headaches and body aches make it torture, the work - and to cope with everyday family life.
If you are the father or mother of a small child, you will only be able to nod and nod tiredly when reading these lines: because while adults are usually afflicted with infections (popularly: colds) 2-4 times a year, it is not at all for children rarity that they get sick up to eight times; around 15% of children are plagued by coughs and colds twelve times a year (cf. British Medical Bulletin 2002: Acute upper airway infections). It is not uncommon for these symptoms to increase due to additional bacterial infections, which now have an easy time, to painful tonsillitis or middle ear infections.
The 2021/22 autumn and winter season represents the pandemic-stricken families once again faced special challenges: while many children were hardly exposed to cold viruses last winter due to the closed kindergartens and schools, with which their immune system could have 'trained', doctors are reporting massive catch-up effects this autumn; especially that Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) is currently affecting our little ones more and more. But this also shows what the human immune system is capable of doing in 'normal times': if it is constantly challenged, it is strengthened! Infections with the common cold therefore do not pose a real threat to an intact health system and in most cases heal without treatment. However, it is problematic if antibiotics are used prematurely, since they do not work at all against the usual causes of a cold - namely viruses. However, if the weakened organism also catches a bacterial infection, there is usually no way around antibiotics. However, the use of these antibacterial substances must always be carefully considered, as there is now a better understanding of their potentially harmful effects on our intestinal flora (microbiome). This is made up of trillions of bacteria from more than 1,000 families; if some are killed by antibiotics, an imbalance can develop in the microbiome, which in turn is suspected to be the cause of various diseases and a weak immune system. A vicious circle threatens! So what can I do?
Even if we can hardly (and don't have to) completely avoid the numerous cold viruses that are up to mischief, especially in the dark and cold season, we should still support our organism in building a vital and resilient immune system.
- Find out what you or your child is missing - and close the gaps in the immune system!
Our GenoLine Immune Liquid Check gives you information about the current state of your micronutrient balance. For example, are you getting enough zinc? Or how about your vitamin D level? We reliably show which vitamins, minerals and trace elements you or your loved ones are lacking, so that you can take specific remedial action.
- Make it as difficult as possible for germs to enter your body!
Many cold viruses find their way into our bodies by getting through our hands and into our mouths sooner or later. Careful hand hygiene is therefore essential. But the oral cavity, as the entry point for many pathogens, also deserves our special protection: The Omnibiotic iMMund lozenges contain the useful bacterium Streptococcus salivarius K12, which repels germs and sustainably strengthens the mucous membranes in the mouth, nose and throat area. With just one lozenge a day before bed, you can fight a cold in you or your loved one before it even develops!
- Watch out for a healthy lifestyle!
Support your immune system by eating healthily, getting enough sleep and exercising in the fresh air. Endurance sports such as cycling, swimming or jogging have been proven to have a positive effect on your immune system - and contrast showers or sauna sessions can also contribute to robust health...
Many more useful tips and suggestions are waiting for you in our guide that can help you to take a sustainable and healthy path - for you and your child!
