“The immune system is a complex network of cells and organs that defend the body against infection.”

“The first line of defense is known as innate immunity. This is a range of protective mechanisms we are all born with, that ranges from your skin which acts like an external barrier to chemical barriers occurring naturally within.”

“Once you become familiar with the body’s early induced responses such as inflammation.  It is important to understand the significance of this early induced response as a way your innate immunity will communicate to you and the reason you want to pay attention to it.”

“The second line of defense is called, acquired immunity.”

“When your immune system is exposed to a pathogen, it learns to recognize, and record it. This is how your body naturally becomes better equipped to fight off that type of germ the next time you’re exposed to it.”
