What is Immune system:

The human immune system is a harmony of many biological structures and processes that protect the body against foreign entities. It’s your body’s natural defense system, an intricate network of cells, tissues, and organs that come together to defend your body against invaders such as bacteria, viruses, parasites and fungi.

A healthy immune system protects us, firstly, by creating a barrier that stops these invaders from entering the body. Secondly, if one of these ‘attackers’ manages to slip through the barricade, the immune system send out its cops (white blood cells and other chemicals and proteins) to catch and destroy these foreign substances. Failing that, the immune system increases patrol levels even more to destroy the invaders as they multiply.

Unfortunately, immune disorders can occur which cause dysfunction in the immune system. Examples of these are:
  • Lupus
  • Scleroderma
  • Vasculitis
  • Graves disease
  • Goodpasture's syndrome
  • Pernicious anemia
  • Lyme disease (Late)
