    9 Essential Tips to Fight Colds and the Flu

    How can we support or boost our immune system during times of invasive diseases? One thing is for sure: the immune system is our best defense mechanism against aggressive viruses, bacteria, fungi, yeast, etc. that we come in contact with. It provides resistance and protection from environmental agents, including chemicals, to preserve the integrity of the body. This is done by the recognition of the invading organism, followed by a response from the body to fight it.

    Hormones are chemical messengers that facilitate communication between the multitude of biological systems and glands within our body. They are part of the endocrine system, which is a series of glands that produce and secrete hormones that the body uses to control cellular functions.

These are regulated by feedback through stimulation from the nervous system, chemical receptors in the blood, and…
