Immune Function, Males, and Females: An Overview

Autoimmune Masterclass - Felice Gersh - Immune Function, Males, and Females: An Overview

Men and women are often treated alike in the conventional medical system, but in reality there are tremendous differences related to the effects of different hormones and genes – resulting in great differences in immune system functioning – a differential evolved due to the imperatives of successful reproduction and survival of the human species. 

This talk focuses on all of those issues and presents a clear picture of the complex differences of male and female immune functioning, showing why autoimmune diseases have a huge preponderance in women.

Key Points

  • Why having 2 X chromosomes has a significant impact on the function of female immune systems
  • Why estrogen is such an amazing hormone and it’s critical role in the body as a whole and the immune system in particular
  • Why women need a robust immune system
  • Why the roles of the gut microbiome and the circadian rhythm matter to immune health
  • What to do each day to improve immune health and lower the risk of developing autoimmune disease
