Functional Medicine plays a crucial role in safeguarding our immune system against the risks of autoimmunity. Among the various protective mechanisms, oral tolerance holds great significance. This mechanism enables us to disregard non-pathogenetic substances, thereby preserving our overall health and well-being. Interestingly, this innate defense mechanism begins its operation even before birth and continues to function throughout our lifetime.
The oral mucosal lining is our initial defense against pathogens, allergens, and chemicals. It protects our body from external environmental exposures, toxins, and microbes.
Composed of stratified epithelial cells and cell to cell junctions. The oral cavity or human mouth consists of nearly 700 different forms of microorganisms .
The microbiological immunity barrier controls and regulates the internal environment to maintain homeostasis.
It plays a major role in the gut and mucosal lining surrounding it. Keeping our internal bodies in homeostasis.
T Reg cells help keep the immune system in homeostasis and prevent the body from attacking itself, which can cause a drastic increase in inflammation.
The gut and immune system are interconnected, and the gut is where the majority of the immune system resides. A healthy gut is essential to maintaining overall physical and mental health. Gut and brain are connected in numerous ways, including neurotransmitters. Which stem from the gut microbiome or mucosal layer to the blood brain barrier.
Eating a diet rich in whole foods like fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds and lean proteins can provide the body with essential nutrients and antioxidants to support a healthier immune system.
