January Feature: The Immune System

To function well, the immune system needs balance and harmony.  Many things can affect the immune system, including diet, exercise, age,  psychological stress, and genetics.  Figuring out the massive defense system that is our immune system is incredibly complex.  Healthy living is a good way to start giving your immune system the upper hand.
I could go on and on in a lengthy article about how the immune system works.  If you are looking for that, go to Wikipedia.  Although the information on the functions of the immune system is thorough, it gives little help to someone looking to improve their immunity.  All of January, I’ll be posting information about different areas involved and affected in the immune system.  More importantly, you’ll learn how to combat your immune system deficiencies.  So stay tuned!  There's great info to come, including:
