There are three types of immunity that Ayurveda talks about

Unable to retain the proper digestive ability results in Ama “toxins from undigested food”Ama can result from improper eating habits and unhealthy lifestyle practices additionally our relationships, stress and traumas also greatly impact our digestive process further impacting immune function.
