Aging, stress and inappropriate life style are major causes for immunological decline. In addition, disease itself and therapy for the disease have negative effect on the immunological vigor. As all causes mentioned above are variable by individual, the level of immunological vigor are variable by individual.
However, one can not easily realized how much the level is. So the assessment of immunological vigor is necessary for maintenance of healthy condition. So HLS has developed the method to evaluate the immunological vigor, which can be easily understood by everyone. If the immunological level is high, you better maintain it at high level. If the immunological level is low, you should seek for methods to enhance the immunological level; i.e., by changing life-style or daily food. If you are trying to taking medicines or supplements, you should check the effectiveness by assessing the immunological vigor.
As described earlier, the immune system combats with infections, cancer and stress, people with depressed immunity are susceptible to infection and cancer. Official reports in any countries, clearly indicated that cancer and infection increase with advance of age, because depression of immunological vigor proceeds with advance of age. In addition, the immunity plays an important role in the maintenance of the internal environment as homeostasis. Thus people with depressed immunity are not good at maintaining homeostasis and frequently feel that something is wrong in the body and depressed QOL in other words.
Inappropriate life style and aging.
There are some drugs and supplements that are believed to be effective for immunological enhancement. However, the effect is different by individuals and sometimes they bring about adverse effect as shown in the table below.
Thus, it is always necessary to check their effect by assessment of immunological vigor, mentioned above. When some drugs and supplements are suitable for immunological enhancement, they are useful for the recovery and maintenance of higher level of immunological vigor.
