    Podcast Summary

    • Shifting from Boosting to Regulating and Rejuvenating the Immune System for Optimal HealthMaintaining a balanced immune system through diet, stress management, and reducing toxin exposure can prevent dysfunction and promote immune rejuvenation, reducing the risk of disease and aging.

      We need to shift our focus from simply "boosting" our immune system to regulating and rejuvenating it. Our immune system plays a crucial role in our overall health, and it is important to understand how to optimize its function. We should aim for a balanced immune system, avoiding both an overactive and underactive response. Chronic inflammation, known as inflammaging, can accelerate the aging process and contribute to various diseases. By adopting a healthier diet, managing stress levels, and reducing exposure to environmental toxins, we can prevent immune system dysfunction. Immune rejuvenation is a new concept that emphasizes the importance of maintaining a strong and resilient immune system as we age, allowing us to effectively fight infections and cancer while reducing the risk of chronic inflammation and autoimmunity.

    • Immuno rejuvenation: Enhancing immune health at every levelPromoting immune cell turnover and addressing factors that contribute to immune system degradation can protect against infections, chronic diseases, and aging-related issues.

      Immuno rejuvenation is a crucial approach to improving immune health. Unlike our conventional approach, immuno rejuvenation focuses on enhancing the functioning of the immune system at every level. By promoting the turnover of immune cells and regularly building a new immune system, we can prevent the aging of our immune system and the development of immunosenescence. Immunosenescence leads to the generation of harmful senescent cells, which spread inflammation throughout the body and accelerate aging. To combat this, it is important to address the factors that contribute to immune system degradation, such as an inflammatory diet, environmental toxins, and chronic stress. By adopting a more proactive approach to immune health, we can better protect ourselves from infections, chronic diseases, and aging-related issues.

    • The Power of Autophagy and Mitochondria Rejuvenation in Supporting Overall HealthUnderstanding and harnessing the natural processes of autophagy and rejuvenation can help us combat inflammation, infections, allergies, and aging, while improving our immune system's function.

      Our bodies have a built-in process of rejuvenation, which includes autophagy and rejuvenating our mitochondria. Autophagy is the process of self-cleaning where old or damaged cells and proteins are digested and recycled. It helps fight chronic inflammation, infections, food sensitivities, allergies, and aging. Stimulating autophagy can be achieved through the right nutrients and phytochemicals in our food. Rejuvenating our mitochondria is also crucial as they are the energy factories of our cells. To activate our body's immuno rejuvenation system, we need to understand how to cultivate a healthier immune system. This involves learning how to activate our stem cells and immune cells. By doing so, we can enhance our body's ability to fight inflammation and age gracefully.

    • Enhancing Your Immune System Through Diet and Lifestyle ChoicesEating a plant-based, anti-inflammatory diet, staying active, taking care of our microbiome, and managing stress can greatly improve our immune system and overall well-being.

      Our diet and lifestyle choices have a significant impact on our immune system and overall well-being. Eating an anti-inflammatory diet rich in plant-based foods, phytochemicals, and medicinal properties can reduce inflammation and rejuvenate our immune system. Including colorful fruits and vegetables, prebiotics, and polyphenols in our diet can have incredible benefits. Additionally, staying active with appropriate exercise and consuming the right omega-three fats are crucial for building immunity. Taking care of our microbiome through prebiotic and probiotic foods is also essential. Avoiding processed, fried, and sugary foods is important, as they drive inflammation and weaken our immune system. Prioritizing quality sleep and managing stress through positive stressors like exercise and sauna therapy can further enhance our immune system's functioning.

    • Enhancing Immune Health Through Nutrient-Rich Foods and Positive StressorsBy incorporating phytochemical-rich foods, polyphenols, omega-3 fats, and microbiome-supporting fibers into our diets, as well as exposing our bodies to mild stressors, we can strengthen our immune system.

      Our bodies have the ability to become more resilient and adapt to changes by activating our own healing systems. One way to stimulate this process is by consuming plant compounds known as phytochemicals, which are produced by plants as their own defense system. These phytochemicals can activate our body's healing system and improve our immune health. Additionally, three key categories of foods and components can rejuvenate our immune system: polyphenols from plants, omega-3 fats, and microbiome-supporting fibers from pre and probiotic foods. It is important to incorporate these nutrients into our diets to build a strong immune system. Furthermore, hormesis, which involves exposing our bodies to mild stressors like temperature extremes, can also help strengthen our immune system. So, the key takeaway is to prioritize nutrient-rich foods and positive stressors to enhance our immune health.

    • Enhance Your Health and Longevity through Cold Plunges, Time-Restricted Eating, and Personal ChallengesIncorporating cold water immersion, time-restricted eating, and personal growth activities can boost your immune system, promote rejuvenation, and support overall health and longevity.

      Taking cold plunges and practicing time-restricted eating can have significant benefits for your health and longevity. Cold water immersion, whether through a cold plunge, a bathtub, or a cold shower, can help rejuvenate your immune system. Additionally, giving yourself a 16-hour overnight fast, such as eating dinner at 6 pm and breakfast at 10 am, can activate autophagy and eliminate zombie cells, further promoting immune system rejuvenation. It is also important to challenge yourself in various ways, such as learning a new sport or engaging in public speaking, to stimulate personal growth and strengthen your immune system. Optimizing your diet with nutrients like polyphenols, phytochemicals, prebiotic fibers, and omega-3 fats can further support immune system health.

    The foundation of our health is a robust immune system that has a very important mechanism of cleaning out inflammatory cells. If this process is broken, the inflammatory cells can actually turn other functioning cells into inflammatory cells. Our daily life habits and exposures, such as sleep, stress management, diet, and toxins, affect key biological processes that impact our immune function. When our immune health is functioning properly, the rest of our body follows with less illness and disease.


    In today’s episode, I talk with Dr. Elizabeth Boham and Dr. Leonard Calabrese about ways that we can support our immune systems to reduce the chance of illness and disease.


    Dr. Elizabeth Boham is a physician and nutritionist who practices Functional Medicine at The UltraWellness Center in Lenox, MA. Through her practice and lecturing she has helped thousands of people achieve their goals of optimum health and wellness. She witnesses the power of nutrition every day in her practice and is committed to training other physicians to utilize nutrition in healing.


    Dr. Leonard Calabrese is a Professor of Medicine at the Cleveland Clinic Lerner College of Medicine of Case Western Reserve University and Vice Chair of the Department of Rheumatic and Immunologic Diseases. He is also the director of the RJ Fasenmyer Center for Clinical Immunology at the Cleveland Clinic and holds joint appointments in the Department of Infectious Diseases and the Wellness Institute.
