The immune system is a vital component of the human body. It is comprised of cells, tissues and organs and it protects us from disease and infections. If the immune system is inhibited then it is not able to work efficiently and may lead to you to become immuno-compromised. This means   that you are more susceptible to catching illnesses, as your body cannot defend against them very well.

The Immune System

The immune system carries out something called the immune response. This is the process by which the system identifies a potential harmful invader in the body and works to fight it and prevent illness and harm.

The immune system exists in various cells throughout the entire body. These all work together as parts of tissues and cells to serve as protection. The key cells that are used in the immune system are white blood cells. These white blood cells find the invading microorganism or virus and destroy it. The body then has a mechanism that allows it to keep a memory of the infectious agent so if you come into contact with it again, it can be fought off before any symptoms appear – a good example here is chickenpox.

Colonic irrigation and the immune system

It has been discovered that a significant proportion of the immune system actually resides in the intestines. This possibly means that if its functions are inhibited by accumulation of waste products and toxins then the immune system is also compromised. This may increase the risk of getting ill, as the immune system is weakened and less able to fight invading agents. Therefore, by having colonic irrigation, you are removing the build up waste to allow the colon to function efficiently again. This can boost the immune system so it too works effectively in protecting your body from disease.
