What is Immunology?

Immunology is the study of the immune system. Our Immune system is an integral part of the internal defense system and responsible for defending our body against anything that poses a threat. Since our immune design is created with such perfection, it often triggers against foreign substances that are harmless to our body, such as pollens, molds, dust mites, certain food groups, or strong medications. This is when you will undergo an allergy attack. Allergies occur when the immune system does not recognize a foreign substance and reacts against it. An allergy reaction is typically harmless and subsides with time, however, in some cases, severe allergies can become life-threatening.
