Even the healthiest people get sick every now and then. When the immune system is working properly and effectively, it is not even noticed. When the immune system is compromised or not working effectively, it cannot protect the body against potentially harmful pathogens such as bacteria and viruses. Sickness is able to infiltrate the body and make life miserable.
