Immunity Disorder 

Our immune system is a complex network of cells, tissues and organs that work together to defend against germs. It helps our body to recognize these foreign invaders and its main job is to keep them out, or if it can't, to find and destroy them. 
If our immune system cannot do its job, the results can be serious. 

Disorders of the immune system include:
  • Allergy and asthma - immune responses to substances that are usually not harmful
  • Immune deficiency diseases - disorders in which the immune system is missing one or more of its parts
  • Autoimmune diseases - diseases causing your immune system to attack your own body's cells and tissues by mistake

There are three types of immunity which protects our body from any infection.

Innate immunity - this type of immunity is present at birth and provides the first barrier against microorganisms which causes infections. Everyone is born with innate (or natural) immunity, a type of general protection that humans have.

Adaptive Immunity - it is the second barrier to infections and acquired later in life as - immunity after an immunization.

Passive immunity is "borrowed" from another source and it lasts for a short time. For example, antibodies in a mother's breast milk provide an infant with temporary immunity to diseases that the mother has been exposed to. This can help protect the infant against infection during the early years of childhood.

Everyone's immune system is different. Some people never seem to get infections, whereas others seem to be sick all the time. As a person gets older, he or she usually becomes immune to more germs as the immune system comes into contact with more and more of them. That's why adults and teens tend to get fewer colds than children - their bodies have learned to recognize and immediately attack many of the viruses that cause colds.

The lymph, or lymphatic, system is a major part of the immune system. It's a network of lymph nodes and vessels. Lymphatic vessels are thin tubes that branch, like blood vessels, into all the tissues of the body. They carry a clear fluid called lymph. Lymph contains tissue fluid, waste products, and immune system cells. Lymph nodes are small, bean-shaped clumps of immune system cells that are connected by lymphatic vessels. They contain white blood cells that trap viruses, bacteria, and other invaders, including cancer cells.

White blood cells are the cells of the immune system. They are made in one of your lymph organs, the bone marrow. Other lymph organs include the spleen and thymus. 

The higher mortality rate is observed due to AIDS, it is the best example of immune disorders.

In Ayurved it is known as Byadhikshamata "OJA", and described two types as Par and Apar Oja.

  • Allergies
