“It is helpful to picture…your body’s immune system [as if it were] a bank account. Each time you make a deposit, the amount of money in your account increases. Conversely, when you make a withdrawal your balance decreases.
Over the years, every event that impacts the immune system in a negative way is basically a withdrawal. But the healthy things you do are deposits. And at any bank, if you withdraw more than you deposit, you will be overdrawn!
To take the analogy a step further, you cannot walk into a bank and demand the teller to deposit a million dollars into your account if you haven’t earned it. Likewise, you cannot demand your immune system to become immediately stronger and healthier. It takes time to replenish your account. You can only deposit what you earn. And you must spend what you have earned wisely because there is no such thing as borrowing from someone else’s ‘immune account.’”
