Boosting Immunity

Boosting Immunity

Issue 62 November 2009

With so many flu viruses emerging, it is vital that we keep our immune system in working order and do our best to boost it. Dr. Noreen A. Kassem suggests ways in which we can all work towards a healthier immune system.

Like we depend on oxygen to live and breathe; we need a strong immune system to ensure that we can sustain that life and protect it from microbiological invasion. The immune system is your body’s natural defense system. It protects your body against invading pathogens (germs) and when you’re ill, it also fights infection and helps you heal.

The immune system can defend against infections arising from the environment, such as bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites, as well as disease from internal sources such as tumors and cancers. When your body encounters a germ, its first line of defense is the immune system which recognises and responds to foreign invaders.

The immune system has its own circulatory system, called the ‘lymphatic system’ as well as many specialised organs and cells, including white blood cells, which work as a team to keep you healthy.
