4 Things You Didn't Know About Your Immune System

father sons beach kiteWith the current state of the world during the ongoing pandemic, we’ve gotten a lot of questions about the immune system lately. As your partner in health, we wanted to create a fun blog post to help better educate you on this important body system.

Here are a few things you may not have known about your immune system!

1. Your immune system may be silent, but it’s working 24/7. It’s easy to notice things like your heart pumping-but your immune system is always working to keep you safe, we promise.

2. We have two types of immunity-innate and acquired. Innate immunity are protective mechanisms that we’re all born with. Acquired immunity is something we gain from interaction with viruses, bacteria and other micro-organisms.

3. Acquired immunity typically allows us to not catch the same sickness twice. That’s because your body remembers the ‘invading’ virus, and can recognize it immediately if you’re introduced to it again. It will start fighting it before you every notice any symptoms or get ill.

4. You can strengthen your immune system by living a healthy lifestyle-this includes not smoking, eating a balanced diet high in vegetables, fruits and healthy fats, exercising, getting adequate sleep, reducing stress, and getting regular chiropractic care.
