Modern conventional medicine battles disease directly by means of drugs, surgery, radiation, and other therapies, but true health can be attained only by maintaining a healthy, properly functioning immune system. It is the immune system that fights off disease-causing microorganisms and that engineers the healing process. The immune system is the key to fighting every kind of insult to the body, from that little shaving nick to the myriad of viruses that seem to abound these days. Even the aging process may be more closely related to the functioning of the immune system than to the passage of time.
Weakening of the immune system results in increased susceptibility to virtually every type of illness. Some common signs of impaired immune function include fatigue, listlessness, repeated infections, inflammation, allergic reactions, slow wound healing, chronic diarrhea, and infections that represent an overgrowth of some normally present organism, such as oral thrush, systemic candidiasis, or vaginal yeast infections. It is estimated that healthy adults in our society have an average of two colds a year. Persons who have significantly more colds and infectious illnesses than that are likely to have some problem with immune function. By understanding some of the basic elements of the immune system and how they work plus the overall role the immune system plays in your health, you can take responsibility for your own health.
In its simplest terms, the task of the immune system is to identify those things that are â€œselfâ€ (that naturally belong in the body) and those things that are â€œnonselfâ€ (foreign or otherwise harmful material), and then to neutralize or destroy that which is nonself. The immune system is unlike other bodily systems in that it is not a group of physical structure but a system of complex interactions involving many different organs, structures, and substances, among them white blood cells, bone marrow, lymphatic vessels and organs, specialized cells found in various body tissues, and specialized substances, called serum factors, that are present in the blood. Ideally, all of these components work together to protect the body against infections and disease.
The human immune system is functional at birth, but it does not yet function well. This is termed Innate Immunity -the immunity you are born with. Immune function develops and becomes more sophisticated as the system matures and the body learns to defend itself against different foreign invaders called antigens. This is termed Adaptive Immunity. The immune system has the ability to learn to identify, and then to remember, specific antigens that have been encountered. It does this through two basic means , known as cell-mediated immunity and humoral immunity.
