Immunity and Well-being

The Immunity system is a state of specific resistance to infection. This specific resistance is directed against a particular type of microorganism and is the single most important characteristic of immunity.

The immune system enables the body to recognize a stranger agent as nonself, which is something other than a person’s own substances (self). The immune system takes a specific action for neutralizing, and eliminating that agent.

On occasion, the immune system activity leads to tissue damage as seen in allergic disorders and other states of hypersensitivity.

Well-being and immune response: a multi-system perspective.

Whereas it is well-established that inflammation and other immune responses can change how we feel, most people are still surprised to hear that, conversely, well-being and its violations also affect our immune system.

Here we show that those effects are highly adaptive for therapeutic applications. The studies discussed in this review demonstrate that immunity is tuned by ones emotions, personality, and social status as well as by other life style variables like sleep, nutrition, obesity, or exercise.

Immunity and Skin health

The immune system is your body’s personal healing system, and also your natural defense against infection and disease. His main function is to distinguish itself (the bodily system) from non self (a host of invading germs) through a complex network of antibodies, proteins, and specialized cells. All of these cells have a task, which is to keep the body healthy at all costs by attacking and demolishing foreign materials.

 

 

If some part of this process fails, the immune system itself fails to function as it should, and sickness results, or sallow or dry skin, fine lines and wrinkles, and chronic skin conditions, even skin cancer, can result.

Does your skin have a role in your immune system?

Your immune system is pivotal when it comes to keeping your body protected from infections and viruses, working around the clock to ward off harmful pathogens and bacteria. Believe it or not, your skin has a vital role in this process, forming an integral part of your innate immunity. This is because your skin is a primary defense mechanism, acting as a physical barrier between your bloodstream and antigens (harmful foreign particles).

What happens to your skin when your immune system becomes weakened?

Defective immune cells may play role in hair loss

After studying, researchers have discovered that a type of immune cell normally associated with inflammation, or regulatory T cells, also promote hair growth by triggering stem cells in the skin. Individuals without these particular immune cells cannot regenerate hair. The researchers suggest that defects in regulatory T cells could be a cause of alopecia aerate and may also contribute to other forms of baldness.
