Identify your dominant Immunotype by looking at characteristics and symptoms you have and the types of diseases and illnesses that ail you. Once you get a clear sense of which Immunotype you fall into you can get an idea of what steps you’ll want to take next to balance your immune system, optimize health, and build lifelong resilience.
(Excerpted from THE IMMUNOTYPE BREAKTHROUGH by Dr. Heather Moday)
Those with a Smoldering Immunotype don't always have a diagnosable disease, nor are they sick enough that they have to stay home from work or cancel their day, but they typically have a lot of little things going wrong at the same time. For example, a little bit of insomnia, aches and pains, brain fog, some chronic stress, occasional sexual dysfunction, and labs that are in the "worrisome" category but not necessarily in the "needs medication" category. The root cause of your issues is too much inflammation throwing the entire body out of whack.
The good news about this Immunotype is that with a few key lifestyle changes, you can reverse this negative cycle of inflammation, and your symptoms should improve rapidly.

If you have been diagnosed with an autoimmune disease, it's likely you have a Misguided Immunotype.
A Misguided Immunotype doesn't just pop up overnight; it's the result of many factors, but especially stress and gut microbiome imbalances, infections, and toxins. If you have a Misguided Immunotype and currently struggle with an autoimmune condition, your doctor may have told you that medication is your only answer--and that you're destined to experience pain, discomfort, and other symptoms for the rest of your life. However, medication is not the ONLY thing that can help you. Dozens of Dr. Moday's patients with a Misguided Immunotype improve their life by making diet and lifestyle changes.

If you are prone to allergies and often experience symptoms like sneezing, stuffiness, or even anaphylaxis...you are The Hyperactive Immunotype. This means you are likely to have a Th2 polarization. (Th2 cells are activated when we’re dealing with invading parasites, as well as bacteria that replicate in cavities and on surfaces of the body. People who have a Th2 dominance may tend to have asthma, eczema, food allergies, sinusitis, and other allergic diseases.)
Using THE IMMUNOTYPE BREAKTHROUGH you can learn how to bolster your Th1 response, as well as using interventions designed to dampen the biochemistry of allergies.

People with The Weak Immunotype typically "catch everything" that goes around. There's a good chance you're wary of germs, have a hard time recovering quickly from being sick, and often suffer from back-to-back illnesses, like strep throat and then a sinus infection and then bronchitis--all seemingly one after another. If you have a Weak Immunotype, you a might feel like you're destined to be this way. But that's not true! By making some key changes to your routine and taking some targeted supplements to boost the immune system, you can help your immune system respond more efficiently to all sorts of invaders. Weak Immunotypes usually need to strengthen the activity of both innate and adaptive immune responses.
