Importance of healthy immune system
Your immune system is constantly working to manage infections and keep them at bay. The first line of defence is called the innate immune system which is comprised of physical barriers like skin, chemical defences and even healthy bacteria. If an infection or pathogen breaks through this first barrier, the adaptive immune system kicks in resulting in inflammatory responses that are specific to the individual pathogen.
Our own bodies house trillions of viruses, bacteria and fungi that need to be kept in a fine balance, not to mention the micro-organisms we come in to contact with on a daily basis. This is why it is so important to nurture your immune system.
