I am Dr. Amelia and I am going to explain the relationship between the digestive system and the immune system so that you can understand more about your disease.
The digestive system is composed of proteins, cells, tissues and organs that work together in a very complex way to defend the body from harmful bacteria, toxins and infectious diseases that attack it relentlessly. In addition to housing these immune cells, the beneficial intestinal flora that lives there is of extreme importance for general immunity. This flora acts as a coadjuvant of the lymphocytes being precious allies in the fight against external attackers.
This work together ensures that pathogens cannot be absorbed and reach the blood. This is one of the most important reasons why maintaining a digestive system in good condition is vital for health.If these functions deteriorate, a series of problems can occur and degenerate into very serious diseases, such as salmonella, for example.
