The development of your immune system began before you were born and continues to change based on choices you make every day. Optimal immune function defends you against potential threats and repairs you when you have been harmed by them.

An imbalanced immune system can be weak making you prone to infections, or it may be misguided making you vulnerable to autoimmune disorders.
