To build up one’s immune system:

(to facilitate a protective system that responds as it should, when it should.)

How does it work – what is it’s job.


1. to stop disease agents from causing illness
2. to mobilize a defense response during times of attack
3. to repair damaged tissues.

REMEMBER:
You were born with the blue print for fixing yourself. (genetic code)
What you have to provide are the building blocks and the environment.

These principles will give a good foundation for proper immune system function.
