Build A Healthy Immune System
While the Harvard Health School states that there are no scientifically proven direct links between lifestyle and enhanced immune function, it thankfully (and not surprisingly) goes on to say that your first line of defense is to choose a healthy lifestyle. Following general good-health guidelines is the single best step you can take toward keeping your immune system strong and healthy.
It also goes on to say that to function well, your immune system requires a balance and harmony or all the macro and micro nutrients necessary for health. We hypothesise that there are over 90 of these nutrients necessary to enable your body to function as it should. There is still much that researchers don’t know about the intricacies and interconnectedness of the immune response, however on the whole, your immune system does a remarkable job of defending you against disease-causing microorganisms.
But sometimes it fails . . .
Sometimes a germ or some other substance invades your protective barriers successfully and makes you sick.
