Suppressing the Immune System
Many prescription drugs suppress the immune system. The reason they do is to allow them to work like they are designed to work. Our bodies recognize what is natural from what is synthetic. Natural substances will be accepted by the body with little or no resistance. Synthetic substances are recognized as foreign and the immune system will fight against it. So when a synthetic medicine or food is taken in, the body does what it can to keep that substance from doing harm. The pharmaceutical companies know this so they put things in their medicines to suppress the immune system. In affect, they are trying to counter what the body does on its' own. Your best bet is to eat natural, unprocessed foods that the body will recognize and accept. And to take supplements, and medicines that are from whole food, natural substances.
