GOOD HEALTH BEGINS INSIDE: Get to know the ABC’s of your immune system
No matter what time of the year it is, building your immune system is important all year long!
THE HUMAN IMMUNE SYSTEM – INTRODUCTION AND IMPORTANCE
Did you know that maintaining your immune system leads to better physical, mental and spiritual health? Your immune system is your invisible bodyguard and it constantly deals with a virus and bacteria invasion to keep you fit, happy and healthy. Made up of various organs, cells and proteins, the immune system works collectively to identify harmful organisms and get rid of them. In fact, the immune system keeps a record of every microbe it has ever overcome and this means it recognizes and destroys the same microbe quickly if it enters the body again!
SIGNS OF A WEAKENED IMMUNE
As long as the immune system is functioning in the way it should, you are safe and healthy. But sometimes, the immune system can fail and constant fatigue, frequent colds, coughs and infections are all common indicators of weakened immunity. When the system stops working properly – because its response is weak or cannot identify harmful germs, you fall sick.
A FEW KEY FUNCTIONS OF THE IMMUNE SYSTEM
Without an immune system, your body has no way to deal with harmful organisms that enter the body externally or the damaging changes that occur within the body. Identifying harmful substances from the environment, dealing with disease-causing germs and eliminating them from the body are some of the functions of the immune system.
