Your Body's Immune System and 5 Habits that Ruin Your Immune System



What is Immune System
The immune system is the body’s defence mechanism – the army with which the body protects itself against disease-causing organisms such as viruses, bacteria or fungi, which are known as pathogens. The troops that make up this army are various types of white blood cells, which are produced in the bone marrow.
When working well, the immune system is constantly vigilant in order to protect us from infection, infestation and general invasion by bugs of all descriptions but, there are many causes that will ruin it and make you sick and it may kill you if you take it easy.
In the following below I am going to mention some of the causes that ruin your immune system and you should avoid those habits immediately if you want to have a good immunity.
1. Being Stressed Chronically:
Stress defined as a state of mental tension and worry caused by problems in your life, work and other areas. It’s also a very real cause of many health problems.        
Stress can affect your immune system in two ways:
  1. By creating chronic inflammation that harms tissues
  2. By suppressing immune cells needed to fight infection
2. Excessive Alcohol Intake:
Both acute and chronic alcohol consumption have been shown to disrupt mucosal barriers, impair phagocytosis,  induce cytokine imbalance, disturb “antigen presentation”, reduce the activity of natural killer cells,deplete lymphocytes and.... so reduces immune cells will destroy your immune system and when a germ or a virus enters to your body there would  be less immune cell to defend from you body so you become sick very often and  those viruses decrease your immunity and make you a big problem.
3. Not Getting Sleep Nighty:
During sleep, your immune system releases proteins called cytokines, some of which help promote sleep. Certain cytokines need to increase when you have an infection or inflammation, or when you're under stress. Sleep deprivation may decrease production of these protective cytokines. In addition, infection-fighting antibodies and cells are reduced during periods when you don't get enough sleep.
4. Being Over Weight:
Having too much fat on your body negatively impacts your body's ability to fight disease because body fat can inhibit the ability of white blood cells to multiply, produce antibodies, and prevent inflammation. A study conducted by new University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill School of Medicine on laboratory mice shows that obesity reduces the body's ability to turn on elements of its immune systems needed for controlling influenza infection.
5. Excessive Intake of Medication:
Drugs are chemicals. Different drugs, because of their chemical structures, can affect the body in different ways. In fact, some drugs can even change a person's body and brain in ways that last long after the person has stopped taking drugs, maybe even permanently. 
So avoid those habits if you want to be healthy and have a good immune system.

 What Is Ramadan?
Ramadan is the most sacred month of the year in Islamic culture. Muslims observe the month of Ramadan, to mark that Allah, or God, gave the first chapters of the Quran to the Prophet Muhammad in 610, according to the Times of India.
During Ramadan, Muslims fast, abstain from pleasures and pray to become closer to God. It is also a time for families to gather and celebrate.
-Ramadan is the ninth month in the Islamic calendar, which is a lunar calendar based on the cycles of the moon. 
What Is The Benefits of Ramadan? Fasting has many benefits for the body as well as for the mind. It gives the body some needed respite provided one does not indulge in the night. And the rigorous discipline and code of conduct that have to be observed daily as part of fasting and for as long as thirty days contribute to one’s patience, tolerance, and overall wellbeing. These are by themselves great benefits of fasting. But beyond that we should also strive for spiritual benefits. This month sh…
