health as your
Contrary to what we have always been told, a healthy immune system is not the one that carries out the strongest reaction. When speaking about immunity, it’s all about balance.
The immune system is first and foremost a self-recognition system, a complex, adaptive, plastic and flexible network, with the ability to recognize what belongs to the organism itself and the elements that are part of its environment, and that reacts to anything that has the potential to harm the body. A healthy immune system is therefore one that is capable to adapt to a constantly changing environment; one that is able to react appropriately to the right threats, and not necessarily one that reacts in the most powerful way.
Did you think your immune system only works when you’re sick?
