Adrenal Stress Weakens the Immune System
The GI tract, lungs and the blood-brain barrier are the primary immune barriers in the body. They prevent foreign substances from entering the bloodstream and the brain.Adrenal stress weakens these barriers, weakens the immune system in general, and promotes poor immune system regulation.
When these immune barriers are breached large proteins andother antigens are able to pass into the bloodstream or brain where they don’t belong. If this happens repeatedly, the immune system gets thrown out of balance.
