The immunity of the human body depends on the state of the intestines. This has been scientifically proven through numerous studies. The immune system of the gut is the largest and, at the same time, the most complex, of all existing. In the intestinal immune system, there are 4 to 5 times more lymphocytes than in the blood. We will analyse the relationship between the immune system and the intestines in our article in more detail.
The immune system of the intestine is in the cells of the mucous membrane. Immunity and guts have a very close and stable relationship. And the direct effect of the bowel on the immune system is enormous.
There is a vast number of different cells that have functions, unique to them. These cells are located in a variety of body structures such as blood and tonsils, appendix and lymph nodes, Peyer’s patches, and so on. And about 75% of these cells are concentrated in the intestines!
The intestine is populated by a merely incredible number of a wide variety of microorganisms. Studies have shown that there are more than 410 species in it. This is usually the microflora that has a positive effect on the body, helping, the digestion of food as well. But pathogenic microflora is also there. It is invariably present in the intestines, but its ratio is always controlled by bacteria that are loyal to the body.
But when this ratio/balance is violated, the number of pathogenic microorganisms is rapidly increasing. This affects the general physical and emotional state negatively. But that is not all!
This condition inhibits the intestinal immune function. No wonder experts say that if a person’s immune forces are weakened, then the reason should be sought in the “banal” dysbiosis in the first place.
The intestine assumes the functions of an immune organ, both local and general. If necessary, special cells from the intestine enter the general bloodstream, being transported through it to a specific destination. If the permeability of the intestine is disturbed, for any reason, then this leads to the same negative consequences as weakening the body’s defences.
In fact, everything that is good for the intestines is also good for the immune system, and vice versa, everything that can potentially harm the intestines also damages the bodys defences. It is essential to maintain a strong relationship between the immune system and the bowels in good condition. To do this, you need to maintain a healthy lifestyle, as well as cleanse the body of toxins and harmful substances sometimes. The colonic hydrotherapy will help you with this.
