Our bodies’ miraculous defense system: everything we need to know about our immune systems

Millions of microorganisms have colonized us: bacteria, viruses, fungi, parasites. Most of them are harmless, but some of them are malignant pathogens. Without a functioning immune system, we wouldn’t be able to survive. In this book, the physician and award-winning medical publicist highlights what we can do to support our physical defenses. She also explains the specific mechanisms our bodies use to mount a defense against the pathogens and how they can compensate for mismanagement within our internal system.

Day after day, Marianne Koch implements what she promotes, and she is the best evidence of how much we can do for ourselves, since she is in the best of health.

  • Trendy topic: our immune system. The more polluted our environment is, the more important our physical defenses are
