The human body is a marvel of nature. Every second throughout life, it quietly and efficiently defends itself against attack from microorganisms, viruses and substances which it recognizes as foreign and potentially harmful. At the core of this constant battle is your immune system – armed with all its immune cells – the body’s soldiers. Try to imagine what would happen should these soldiers become ill.
Let us first understand how the immune system works:
There are different types of immune cells - soldiers of the body - that play a vital role in different kinds of attacks on the body. The skin, gastric juice (acid formed in stomach), mucus formed in nasal passage, enzymes in tears, etc. form the first line of defence of the body. When any foreign particle crosses any of these barriers, it is ‘eaten up’ by specialized immune (soldier) cells. The defence system of the body also has a ‘memory’ to remember certain kinds of attackers that can be recognized and destroyed accordingly. Thus, the body has the power to resist and protect against illnesses ranging from common cold to cancer.
What happens if these soldiers of the body become ill and start to fail repeatedly in their job? The body surrenders easily to infections every time. Thus, you get a cold at the drop of a hat; you get down with fever at every exposure to a chilly breeze or you suffer from a bout of loose motions every time you enjoy your favorite pani-puri.
