The immune system represents an elaborate, finely tuned defense to destroy and counter the effects of microorganisms and foreign substances. Under normal, healthy circumstances, these foreign invaders are destroyed without eliciting symptoms, and the immune system takes further action to program itself to immediately recognize said offenders quickly should they ever reappear. An imbalanced immune system, however, can not mount an immediate and overwhelming response to invaders, and this may set the stage for illness and chronic conditions. Therefore, maintaining a healthy immune system is key to avoiding persistent health challenges.
Among these foreign invaders, and particularly bothersome this time of year, are viruses. These microscopic viruses and virion particles are particularly effective at utilizing special chemical receptors to invade host cells and take them over for their own nefarious means. The upper respiratory tract, in particular, is susceptible to viral attack. A perfect example of this is the simple common cold, which affects nearly 90% of the population at some point throughout the year. About half of all colds are caused by rhino virus which enters the mucous membranes of the eye, nose, or lung. Transmission of the virus between individuals can be from coughing, sneezing, nose-blowing, and shaking hands or touching other contaminated surfaces.
