Everything cyclic, even the vibrations of atoms, so yes, I think you are correct in postulating the immune system is cyclic as well.I think our immune system is cyclic. And your immune reaction depends on the phase of that cycle.
Gut microbiome is integral to the immune system. But keep in mind that what you eat is the primary determinant of the makeup of the microbiome. Fiber and fermented foods result in a larger proportion of "good" microbes. The quality of the water you drink also is critical. And it's not just a question of filtration of purification. Dr. Pollack at the University of Washington has published articles on Exclusion Zone water. There's also the idea of keeping the blood slightly alkaline, i.e., more negative ions, for health and this can be accomplished at least in part with food choices. I saw one article (not sure where) stating that when the blood turns more acidic microorganisms "spontaneously" appear in the blood, i.e., the constituent parts self-assemble when the blood environment favors organisms we perceive as pathogenic.I was thinking a cyclic rate from the population of gut bacteria. Perhaps 3 to 7 weeks. The cycle is probably the result of several populations......and may vary within a range.
This is just a totally wild guess from what I read.
But I did notice cycles bringing wastewater treatments plants online, decades ago.
My personal experience tells me epigenetics, i.e., nutrition, lifestyle choices and the thoughts you choose to think far outweigh genes because genes are just blueprints. You are your own architect and builder. Your choices in response to the environment determine which genes express.
I used to get the flu. Now I do not get sick and have no need for a vaccine.
