The Immune System By: Hira Umer

The immune system does not work alone; it has a full force behind it. One of the organs that are full of white blood cells is the spleen. It is the main source helping the immune system. Another pathogen fighting organ is the thymus, making hormones and white blood cells be released into the circularatory system. Overall, in the body there are many organs helping the immune system.

The immune system protects us from getting sick constantly. It also uses WBCs, or white blood cells, to fight off the pathogen or disease. You need to follow certain steps to keep your immune system in shape.

The white blood cells in the picture to the left is of the white blood cells engulfing the pathogens in a process called phagocytosis. To the right of the images there is a lot of red blood cells that have a couple of white blood cells. There is more red blood cells than the red blood cells that fight off the pathogens or superbugs. According to the book Immune System, “A process called phagocytosis or the ingesting and killing of bacteria cells is how most pathogens are destroyed” (Klosterman, 9).

The main thing that the immune system does is protect your body from pathogens. The immune system is actually scientifically proven to have a connection to the brain making it break the blood brain barrier. As we know, the immune system is made of white blood cells in the blood so the blood brain barrier is where the immune system and brain meet but do not connect. So, the ability for the immune system to break this barrier is incredible. It does this by going through a special immunity organ.

These are a couple of the blood cells that make breaking through the blood brain barrier.

These are the white blood cells involved in the meticulous task of breaking the barrier.

This is the final point of the blood-brain barrier.

Once the barrier is broken the immune system has full control of the brain and nervous system. It is proven that if a young child has too may protiens, or meat, the child runs a risk of being mentally ill, or depressed. The reason this happens is because when the protiens enter the body, they are used by the immune system to fight pathogens, they leave traces of the proteins. When this happens, the body reacts strangely to this, leaving the chance of depression.

The immune system also causes allergies. When the immune system fights pathogens, as I stated earlier, it leaves proteins but not as much to leave signs as depression. Those proteins trigger histamines causing you to sneeze and have all of the side affects of allergies.

This plant is a histamine causing allergies.

You can keep your immune system healthy by doing a variety of things like washing your hands frequently to avoid getting sick. You can also be active and eat helthy foods. Your body functions by doing all of the simple things, like covering your mouth with your elbows while sneezing.

Keeping a healthy lifestyle can have its benefits like having a hollistically boosted immune system.

People boost their immune systems everyday, but not the right way. They take pills to do it but, just taking a little bit of time off of your day to exercise. What the pills actually do is harm your liver and makes you prone to much more weakness. It is better to do it hollistically like using herbs and excercising.
