3:10 How you could use this information
Did you realize there is a third function of the immune system? The immune system can help fight pathogens and kill cancer and tumor cells.
But, the third purpose of the immune system is wound healing. This goes beyond inflammation. You have cells called macrophages. Macrophage means “big cell that eats.” This is one of the first lines of defense against infections.
There is are other phagocytes called neutrophils. Neutrophils are like the main defense, and the macrophages will back them up. They work together. Neutrophils are more involved in acute inflammation, and macrophages are more involved in chronic inflammation.
When you have inflammation in various organs, it can eventually turn into scar tissue. There is the normal healing cycle, and then there’s pathogenic inflammation or pathogenic wound healing.
The more pathogenic wound healing you have, the more chronic inflammation you’re going to have. You could also have more free-radical damage as well as a lack of function in the area. Macrophages are involved in wound healing whether or not it’s normal or pathogenic.
The nutrition that supports the white blood cells for immune protection is the same nutrition you would use to support wound healing.
There is a transition from inflammation to scar tissue, and tocotrienols (a specific form of vitamin E) will help slow down this process by supporting the macrophages.
Omega 6 fatty acids create a lot of oxidation that can lead to inflammatory conditions. Getting rid of this trigger is important.
A few essentials to help support wound healing:
• Vitamin D
