Our immune and nervous systems effect every organ and cell. The immune system is the guardian which protects us from disease due to invasion from microbes. However, when out of balance it can either be deficient in its ability to defend against microbial invasion leading to a myriad of infectious diseases and cancer or in an overstimulated state create conditions ranging from allergies to thyroid disease to severe auto immune diseases.
The nervous system which includes the trillion of cells in our brain is the part of our physiology that feels sensation, controls movement, integrates thoughts, emotion, instinct and memory and controls the actions of all the organs in our body. In a healthy state our body runs smoothly and organs perform optimally. When in dis-ease it can lead to malfunction of our organs, glands, immune system, chronic pain and diseases such as high blood pressure, diabetes and migraine headaches.
