The Way That Your Immune System Protects You

Most people understand what their immune system does, protecting your body from outside invaders.  These include germs such as bacteria, fungi, and viruses.  The immune system works by providing a level of immunity to illnesses and diseases to the different organs, cells, and parts of your body.

In this blog post, I will take this a step further than just being aware of what your immune system does to how it actually does it. It is fair to say that most people do not have a clear understanding of precisely how their immune system protects them from viruses.

In its simplest terms, the task of the immune system is to identify those things that naturally belong in the body and those that are foreign or harmful to the body.  The immune system’s job is to neutralize or destroy foreign invaders.

The lymphatic system is very important to your immunity.  This is a system of organs (including the spleen, the thymus, the tonsils, and the lymph nodes) and a fluid called lymph, that circulates through the lymphatic vessels.  Think of your lymph like the sewage system of your body.  It must dump the waste out of your body.  To help your immune system do its job you need to sweat every day in a sauna or exercise.  Jumping on a trampoline is excellent for your lymph.  Berries, melons, and purple grapes are the most detoxifying fruits for the lymph.

Your Immune System will give you a Fever.

Often your immune system will protect you by giving you a fever. You will probably think that having a fever is a bad thing, but the truth is that your immune system giving you a minor fever can help you a lot.

The first thing that your body will do is raise its temperature to try and eliminate the virus; this is because the virus will be unable to survive at high temperatures. This can be quite a dangerous process for you, so it is important that you keep track of your temperature to ensure that it does not get too high.  Most times people will grab a fever reducer at the first sign of a temperature.  This is counterproductive because it drives the virus deeper into the body instead of just letting the body fight off the invading germs.

It responds with White Blood Cells.

When your immune system detects the presence of foreign bodies in your system, it will respond by using white blood cells. Think about white blood cells as your enforcers – their job is to eliminate any harmful microorganisms they discover.

Some of your white blood cells will become attached to these harmful organisms in an attempt to make them weaker. Others will mount a direct attack on the harmful organisms to try and kill them. The best part is that the white blood cells will learn about the organisms they got rid of, enabling you to develop immunity to them in the future.

Inflammation is part of your Immune System.

When people are sick, they will often find that certain areas of their body become inflamed, which is obviously uncomfortable. We all know that inflammation is not a great experience, but it could signify that you have an infection as it is an important part of your immune system.

Once bad bacteria get into your system, they will use your blood vessels to travel around and spread all over. Your immune system can make certain areas of your body inflamed so that it constricts the blood vessels located in that area and makes it harder for the bacteria to spread throughout your body.

When your white blood cells notice this inflammation, they will respond immediately to try and eliminate the harmful bacteria. You probably think that many of the ways your body reacts to sickness are uncomfortable, annoying, and even gross, but this is all part of your immune system protecting you and making you feel better as fast as it can.

Remember to enhance your immune cells you MUST clean up your Lymph! Take the burden off your immune system and give it the capacity to heal anything that may come your way.
