We all must have heard this sentence many times, but what does it mean? Does it mean that we will always remain young; our body will never show any signs of ageing? The answer is No. As we age, all our body systems start showing signs of ageing, including our immune system.

Immunity means defence. Defence that eliminates chances of infection and getting sick. Immunity can be considered as Multi-Level Defence Mechanism that exists in our body. Basically Immunity is of two types – Natural Immunity and Acquired Immunity. Natural Immunity is present in our body since the time of our birth, while Acquired Immunity is developed over the period as we are exposed to infection or by vaccination or by receiving antibodies from donor.

In Ayurveda, Immunity is considered as Ojas or as Bala. Under Immunity concept, Ayurveda explains about Sahaj Bala as Natural Immunity, i.e. right from the birth. Kalaj Bala as Age related or Season related Immunity, Yukti Krut Bala as Immunity developed with the help of Diet, Exercise and Rasayana Herbs.
