7 Things You Must Know If You Are Wondering, ‘Why Is My Immune System Weak?’

You’re absolutely correct in asking the question, “Why is my immune system weak?” Hopefully, you’re also asking the follow-on question, “How can I strengthen my immune system?”

The immune system is second only to the brain in accountability for overall health!

Stress of all kinds (mental, emotional, environmental, etc.) leads to inflammation. Inflammation leads to everything from pain to cancer. Your immune system just can’t prevent these things if it’s in a weakened state.

To be optimally healthy you cannot afford the “luxury” of poor health habits!  You must

  1. Keep your body mass index (BMI) 18 to 24
  2. Not Smoke
  3. Eat 7 to 10 servings of veggies and fruits daily
  4. Exercise 30 minutes five days a week
  5. Sleep 7 to 8 hours every night
  6. Take the basic essential supplements: D 3; Shealy-Sorin Essentials and Youth Formula, astaxanthin
  7. Reduce physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, chemical stress

After reading this list, you need to know you’re not alone in wondering, “Why is my immune system weak?” Yours and so many others suffer because only 2.5% of Americans have all these ESSENTIAL health habits!

Now let’s look at each habit.

Keep Your Body Mass (BMI) 18 to 24

Over 72% of Americans are overweight, with 36% FAT! This is now the number one cause of premature death!

Americans are overweight because of junk food—80% of food consumed is junk. I went to McDonald’s in1962, took one bite and spit it out and have not gone back. I will not even drink a cup of coffee at a fast food restaurant, as they add monosodium gluconate to everything! Even in the grocery stores 80% of the food is JUNK, with harmful additives in everything except the fresh fruits and veggies and perhaps some of the meat and dairy!

No Smoking

Twenty two percent of ADULTS STILL SMOKE. One pack a day shortens life by 7 years. Two packs shortens life by 12 years and three packs shortens life by 18 years, the same as someone 40 pounds of weight or more overweight!

Eat 7 to 10 Servings Of Veggies And Fruits Daily

The average American eats only two total servings of fruits and veggies daily! The MINIMUM for health is 5 and the ideal is 8 to 10!! French fries and ketchup are NOT veggies! If you won’t eat the real things at least add DAILY 2 tablespoons of tart cherry juice concentrate and one scoop of Orac Rich Greens!

Exercise 30 Minutes A Day, 5 Days A Week

Another reason you may be asking, “Why is my immune system weak?” is because ONLY ten percent of Americans get adequate exercise! Sitting all day is as deadly a smoking a pack or more of cigarettes daily! At 88 years of age, I exercise 2 hours seven days a week! Exercise is ESSENTIAL for immune and heart health.

Sleep 7 to 8 Hours Every Night

Over 40% of Americans sleep less than 7 hours a night. Those who sleep 6 or less hours function at the level of slightly drunk. Those in this most stupid habit of inadequate sleep are responsible for more automobile accidents than drugs and alcohol!

Take The Basic Essential Supplements

In today’s polluted world we need far more essential vitamins than 50 years ago.

Seventy-five percent of rain has glyphosate in it—one of the worst poisons in history. (In fact, if the FDA did an adequate job, they would not allow the word ORGANIC to be used unless it was grown in a greenhouse with purified air and water.)

City water is polluted with fluoride which has lowered IQ at least ten points and decreased male fertility from 150 million sperm to forty million. Unless we rid the country of fluoride in twenty years, there will be no more children!!!

All adults now need almost twenty times as much B complex as 50 years ago. Over 80% are deficient in magnesium, vitamin C and D 3. (The evidence is overwhelming that most of the so-called covid deaths are from inadequate thiamine!)

Reduce Physical, Mental, Emotional, Spiritual, Chemical Stress

Another important reason to consider as you contemplate the answer to the question, “Why is my immune system weak?” is BECAUSE of excess physical, mental, emotional, chemical and spiritual stress!

The stupidemic has created the greatest known stress in history: fear of EVERYTHING—Death, Invalid, Poverty, Abandonment, Failure of God to help.

You might find this list of 7 reasons your immune system isn’t as strong as you’d like daunting. You might even be confused about how you can start strengthening your immune system. If you’re not sure where to start, start with decreasing your stress levels. Stress is often at the root of avoiding the other healthy habits. By decreasing your stress levels, you set yourself up for greater overall health.

As in ordinary times the greatest reducer of stress is AUTOGENIC TRAINING, done twice daily. There are now 68 different Biogenics® exercises in a course you can access at

If you suffer from an overwhelming inability to function because of stress, you should consider a two-week virtual intensive at home. You can call The Shealy-Sorin Wellness Institute at 417-351-5221 to schedule your consultation. Please note: Some individuals will also need to use the Shealy-Sorin Gamma (PEMF®).

Norman Shealy, M.D., Ph.D. is the father of holistic medicine. He recommends autogenic focus (the basis of the Biogenics System) as part of your overall commitment to self-health.
