Worried about your immune response?

Did you know your body has a range of immune defences that work hard to keep invaders out? As you go about your everyday activities, your body is busy keeping you healthy by blocking the invasion of pathogens so you don’t get sick.

Seasons come and go, but with cold temperatures and reduced sunlight hours come the inevitable ills and chills – or do they? That all depends on whether or not you follow the wise Scout motto and “Be prepared.”

During the cooler, wetter months, your body must work even harder to keep you healthy. Eating well, keeping warm, staying active and managing stress are important ways you can maintain a strong and healthy immune response, which is the key to surviving the winter bug free.

Your skin and mucous membranes are your body’s first line of defence. They create a physical and chemical barrier that prevents the entry of most unwanted nasties. Micro-organisms in ingested foods present the greatest challenge to your immune system, so the health of your digestive system is crucial to prevent them from taking hold. Your specific immune response works on the inside and is made up of trillions of immune cells. These cells work together to seek, tag and destroy invaders that have found their way into your body.

By improving the health of the organs and tissues involved with your immunity, you help your body to prevent invasion and fight the bugs that do find their way inside.
