Reclaim Your Health! Reclaim Your Life

While your Innate Immune System (IIS) is the fast-acting, first line of attack, the Adaptive Immune System (AIS) is designed for your long-term, overall health.

AIS:

This system does exactly what it claims to do. It Adapts. It adapts to your internal environment, what I like to call your “Internal Landscape.” The AIS works closely with your IIS (Innate Immune System) to develop antibodies thereby making it easier to fight invaders over the long run.

Since Sars-Cov-2 came on the scene, we’ve all become quite familiar with antibodies so I’ll keep this brief and basic. Antibodies are developed by specific B cells and working with other cells, (T-cells) the infected cells can be destroyed. The challenge is that it may take several days for this process to complete and the longer it takes, the sicker someone gets.

Memory Cells:

Here’s where it gets really cool though. The over abundance of antibodies drops in your system once the threat is neutralized BUT the body doesn’t forget the invader. It remembers the attacker by holding onto a few specialised T-cells (or Memory Cells). These T-cells are not detectable in an antibody test but they are detectable by other methods. Then, if the antigen or invader reappears, the sleeping T-cells wake up and take out the pathogen. The body has Adapted to that threat and is not able to take it out over and over again.

Your body has the capability to recognise, remember , and eradicate millions of antigens!

Not only that, it’s specific to your environment and culture. This is why you may be told when you travel not to drink the water. The natives have adapted to whatever pathogens may be in the water in their country, you have not and it could lead to all kinds of symptoms, ranging from very mild to very severe. But, if you were to make that new place your home, you would, most likely, adapt as well.
