Our immune system is a complex network of specialized organs, glands and cells which, when working properly, protect us from pathogens such as viruses, bacteria, fungi and foreign cells.

Immunity, by definition, is a homeostatic condition in which the body maintains protection from infectious disease. It is a series of balanced, complex, multi-cellular and physiological mechanisms that allow an individual to distinguish foreign material from "self" and to neutralize and/or eliminate the foreign matter.       

Researchers now agree that abnormal cells develop in our body daily, for all people, including normal healthy adults. These cells are caused by viruses, bacteria, fungi, or foreign cells.

Unfortunately diet, stress, drugs, environmental toxins and smoking are just some of the ways our immune system may be weakened.

In order for our immune system to avoid being weakened by certain pathogens, we must have an optimum immune response.
