The immune system of a human is a set of related organs, tissues and cells whose main task is to protect the body against the negative outside influence. In particular, it seeks to deliver protection against biological aggressors (viruses, bacteria, helminths) as well as releases the output of chemical and physical effects (e.g., radiation, temperature) from the organism in order to protect it from the negative social factors and stress.
Our organism is under the constant threat of millions of harmful microorganisms but we usually just don’t notice these attacks at least for as long as our immune system does its job. But when we do begin to get sick too often, feel weak or sleepy, reduced immunity may be the last thing we may think of as a possible reason for this.
Sooner or later there comes a time when the load on the immune system becomes too heavy which causes the organism to penetrate foreign bodies, causing various disorders and leading to serious diseases.
The symptoms of reduced immunity are quite easy to recognize. If even a small wound does not heal and is constantly inflamed, it is one of the most evident signals that something may be wrong with the immune system. Other worrying symptoms are constant fatigue, drowsiness and weakness. Frequent colds, angina, inflammation are all signs of a weakened immune system.
Also, a striking example of a weak immune system is allergies. For example, a continuous herpes is yet another symptom indicating that the organism needs better support and care.
Let’s take a closer look at a few most important symptoms of reduced immunity.
