    Understanding how the immune system reacts

    The immune system is a complex association of organs, tissues and cells that work together to protect the body. Inflammation is part of your body's response when it senses that it is in danger of further infection or injury.

    There are three types of immunity:

    Passive Immunity: Passive immunity is temporary immunity that comes from another organism, for example from the mother via the placenta or breast milk. Passive immunity usually disappears 6 to 12 months after birth.

    Innate: Innate immunity is the immunity you are born with. Innate immunity includes barriers that prevent invaders from entering your body, as well as inflammatory responses: coughing, tear production, sweat, excess mucus and stomach acid, bloating, etc.

    Acquired - Acquired immunity develops in the presence of certain antigens. It develops as your body builds defenses against specific invaders, such as the viruses that cause chickenpox and the common cold.

    In this section, we discuss innate immunity and acquired immunity, the two immune systems that persist into adulthood. We will discuss inflammation as part of the innate immune system and invader specific defenses as part of the acquired immune system.

    Innate Immunity: Providing general protection through inflammation

    Inflammation is part of your body's innate response to invaders. The inflammatory response takes over when bacteria, viruses, toxins or other harmful elements enter the tissues and damage them. These damaged cells release chemicals called prostaglandins and histamines, which cause fluid to leak from blood vessels into tissues and create swelling.

    The resulting inflammation - characterized by redness, swelling, warmth and pain - acts as a physical barrier against the spread of infection (in case of illness) or re-injury (which would delay the healing process). Chemical factors released during inflammation inhibit or sensitize pain signals, creating a more conducive environment for healing.

    Meanwhile, the immune system, sensing the danger, sends reinforcements. Various parts of the immune system respond by directing traffic, isolating and killing invaders, and destroying and eliminating infected cells. Cells communicate with each other through various chemical signals, including cytokines, C-reactive protein, acute phase proteins, prostaglandins, etc. Understanding this answer is helpful for doctors because inflammatory markers indicate where the problem is and how severe it is. Researchers are looking into the process to find out what triggers inflammation and find ways to control it, such as through diet, when things go wrong.


    Gained Immunity: Attacks specific invaders in past encounters.

    The acquired, or adaptive, immune system is what you develop based on what you do, where you go, and what you are exposed to. The more germs and viruses you come into contact with, the more complex and potentially more protected the acquired immune system becomes.

    Through a process called the immune response, the immune system uses its network - cells, tissues and organs - to fight disease and infection. Leukocytes, or white blood cells, seek out and destroy infectious organisms and substances. There are two types of leukocytes:

    The phagocytes, which are the starving leukocytes that eat the invaders.

    Lymphocytes, which help the body identify and recognize attackers so it knows what to expect next.

    Here's what happens: When your body detects antigens (foreign substances), a group of cells come together and form a kind of cellular army to attack the invader. Some of these cells produce antibodies that can attach to specific antigens. The antibodies act as a tag, identifying the invader as an enemy and aiming for destruction.

    Some of the antibodies continue to live in your body so they can attack immediately if the same antigen is detected. The next time the antibodies encounter this antigen, they block and trigger an inflammatory response.

    See where the inflammation hurts

    When inflammation works well, it attacks the irritant: the virus, harmful bacteria, or damaged cells. Sometimes, however, the body kicks it up a notch and launches an offensive on normal, healthy tissue. For example, if you have rheumatoid arthritis, an autoimmune disease, you will see joint redness and swelling, along with joint pain and stiffness. This reaction is a sign that your body is trying to attack your joint tissues, which it mistakenly perceives as hostile.

    Imagine your home is overrun with mosquitoes. Get mosquito spray, light a lemongrass candle, and have a rolled-up newspaper handy. You are dealing with the irritant and only with the irritant. Now, suppose we went a little too far. Instead of a rolled up newspaper, you take a baseball bat and try to kill that mosquito on the wall. The problem is that the mosquito was not a mosquito at all; it was just a shadow, and now you have a hole in the wall. Likewise, the immune system can overreact to perceived threats and harm the body.

    How your body responds to inflammation depends in part on your genetics and environmental factors. Most healthy people react the same way to a cut or bruise, but how the immune system reacts to a different virus, bacteria, or food can vary from person to person. The differences in your immune system response depend on:

    your genes

    Factors that affect the expression of your genes, called epigenetics

    Your general health, physical and emotional

    The health of key organs of immune function, such as the gastrointestinal tract.

    Your nutritional status in vitamins and minerals

    The influences of diet on health, including nutrients and toxins in food.

    Environmental toxins, such as pesticides

    Blood sugar and insulin imbalance

    Stress factors (stress weakens the immune system).

    One of the main factors behind the different ways people are affected by inflammation is an imbalance in their acquired immune systems. In a healthy immune system, helper T cells (those that participate in the immune response and attack) are in balance: one cell attacks blood-borne parasites, the other attacks invaders such as bacteria. When the immune system is overstimulated, the helper cells enter a self-sustaining imbalance, causing the helper cells to attack the body. As long as the cause of the inflammation is still present, the imbalance remains.

    The inflammation can also last too long. The innate and acquired immune systems communicate with each other through sensors and signals, which tell the body when to release certain chemicals and proteins to activate protection against inflammation. These signals should also tell the inflammation when to stop. This is not always the case. Some people have high levels of C-reactive protein, an inflammation marker that leaves the body in defensive mode, always ready to attack. When this happens, your body begins a constant downward spiral which leads to disease.

    Eating foods rich in antioxidants and anti-inflammatory phytochemicals helps clean up free radical damage associated with the immune system battle. These antioxidants also help your body detoxify and are associated with better health and a longer life.

    Inflammation also causes oxidative stress and damage to the mitochondria. Mitochondria are the powerhouse of a person's cells that are necessary for energy and optimal system functioning.

    In addition to free radical damage, inflammation can cause advanced glycation end products (AGEs) and uric acid crystals, as well as oxidation of bad cholesterol and other effects that, if left unchecked, can lead to chronic disease.

    Differentiation between acute and chronic inflammation

    The inflammation can be acute or chronic. The biggest difference between the two is time:

    Acute: Acute inflammation occurs almost immediately after tissue damage and lasts for a short time, from seconds to days. This is what causes bruising and swelling when you fall or sprain yourself.

    Chronic: Although generally less painful than acute inflammation, chronic inflammation lasts much longer, sometimes for several months. Chronic inflammation can be caused by physical factors (viruses, bacteria, blood sugar imbalances, extreme heat or cold, toxins) or emotional (chronic daily stress). Over time, chronic inflammation can contribute to chronic disease by destabilizing the body's immune system and creating much more inflammation in the process.

    Some researchers classify inflammation as high-grade or low-grade, depending on the severity of the inflammation and the levels of inflammatory markers such as high-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hs-CRP), fibrinogen, globulins (such as IgG and IgA) and pro-inflammatory cytokines. Low-grade inflammation often leads to chronic diseases, such as atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries), diabetes, cancer, arthritis, multiple sclerosis, irritable bowel syndrome, high blood pressure, and lupus.

    Other diseases associated with long-term inflammation include allergies, asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), kidney disease, neurodegenerative disorders such as Alzheimer's disease, cognitive decline, and mental illnesses such as depression and post disorder -traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Many of the factors that lead to low-grade inflammation are related to lifestyle: smoking, stress, obesity, inactivity, and diet. Diet is a powerful and delicious way to reduce the risk of inflammation wreaking havoc in your body.

    Low-grade inflammation often goes unnoticed, but here are the most common symptoms:

    Chronic fatigue and difficulty sleeping

    Chronic low fever and flu-like symptoms

    Depression, anxiety, mood disorders and memory problems

    Dry eyes and skin

    Frequent infections

    Gastrointestinal problems, such as indigestion, diarrhea, chronic constipation
