Hello welcome to a series on You & Your immune system

more relevant now than ever!


We’ll be talking about your body’s Défense system and how to boost it in our next series of emails.

There are many natural ways to boost your immune system and help you stay healthier.

Your immune system is an amazing machine. Its job is to protect your body from foreign invaders ,toxins, and from internal changes like cancer.

Your immune system – your skin, blood, bone marrow, tissues and organs like the thymus ,spleen, and lymph glands – keeps your body safe from outside invaders like viruses, bacteria, fungi and toxins.

It also recognizes and neutralizes harmful substances from the environment and fights disease-causing changes in the body (like cancer cells).

There are two main parts to your immune system: the part you were born with (innate or non-specific system) and the part you develop from exposure to the environment (adaptive acquired, or specific system). White blood cells or leucocytes are part of this system.

These come in two basic varieties: phagocytes that chew up invaders and lymphocytes that let your body remember and recognize previous invaders.

Lymphocytes also come in several varieties. B-Cells release antibodies to defend against invaders. Helper T-Cells communicate between B-Cells and Killer T-Cells, sending signals that tell the killer cells to attack. Killer T-Cells target and destroy infected cells and cancer cells.


A strong immune system is your best Défense against illness and infection. Without it, you would have no way of fighting off harmful substances or changes within the body. Your immune system is activated by antigens – things the body doesn’t recognize as belonging there.

These are proteins on the surfaces of bacteria, viruses and fungi. When the immune system cells come into contact with these antigens, a whole series of processes is stimulated in your immune system.B-lymphocytes are triggered.


These make antibodies that attach to the antigens and tag them for the T-cells. T-cells then destroy these antigens and signal for the phagocyte cells to come in and get to work. Antibodies will also neutralize toxins made by different organisms and activate a special group of proteins that help kill viruses, bacteria, and infected cells.

The good news is that once your immune system comes in contact with a germ, it will recognize that germ if it sees it again.


This is why eating healthy fruit and vegetable can work to protect you against certain diseases.

In our next email, we’ll talk about how to tell if your immune system has been overwhelmed.

Until then, much love
