The Immune System is the name of the internal defense of the human body. It's primary job is to ward off diseases and bacteria that we may come in contact with.
Through the Immune System substances which are foreign to the body are recognized. The various cell types and unique chemical substances respond to isolate the intruder and prevent it from spreading throughout the body.
The are two types of Immune System responses: Non-specific and Specific. A non-specific response will attack whole classes of enemies, whereas a specific response will only attack certain intruders but will attack them with alot of power.
The Immune System works very closely with the Lymphatic System. The Lymph System provides a vehicle for the elements of the Immune System to travel throughout the body to monitor the internal environment and stability of all body functions. It is composed of lymphatic tissue and immune "effector" cells that are the first line of defense should something occur in our bodies. The surface immune system meets the intruder such as viruses, bacteria, fungal or yeast (Candida) cells and will destroy them before their cell numbers become out of control. In a noraml healthy person, these cells are constantly working to protect their internal defenses, in someone who may be ill these cells are burdened and will not works as they need to allowing secondary infections to settle in.
It is very important to protect and nourish the immune system it is our first line of defense against unstable organisms and can greatly improve our health and fight disease.
