Natural resistance: Innate immunity refers to the ability of your body, working all the time, to fend off things that might be harmful. It sometimes goes awry and causes auto-immune diseases that are a considerable problem (arthritis, lupus, many others). But we depend on innate immunity to survive in our biologically hostile world.
