The human body is a very vulnerable creation, and without the immensely strong and powerful line of defense, that is the immune system. If we did not have this natural line of protection provided by the immune system, the bacteria and microbes would destroy the body back down to its essential components in a matter of a few days.
When the body dies, and this happens, it is the result of not having an immune system. The body’s immune system works all the time, day in and day out without getting much recognition. But when the immune system fails, it becomes very noticeable.
We inhale and take in and eat thousands of microbes every day. The immune system is what prevents them from causing all the many diseases. When a bacterium manages to break through the body’s immune system on occasion, we wind up getting diseases. When the immune system becomes aware of these microbes, it gets to work fighting them, and we can get over the illness.
When we are all born, we have a natural defense system that is genetically based. The most important organ of our immune defense system is the skin. An injury to the skin becomes a gateway for microbes to enter into the body. This alerts the body to a foreign presence, inside the body, and it then causes the immune system to react, getting rid of the microbes. While this is happening, the skin repairs the wound., When this process does not occur or happen fast enough, it will result in an infection.
When we get a bump on the skin after a mosquito bite, this is a sign of the immune system functioning and reacting to foreign substances being injected into the body from the bite.
Our bodies would not exist without our immune system. Look at the things that can occur with a sub-par immune system.
Our bodies recognize our healthy and normal cells through markers in the body. If the body does not recognize a cell, then it treats it as a foreign body and will attack it.
When there is a breakdown of this process, then the body can attack its own cells. This breakdown causes autoimmune diseases like Multiple Sclerosis, Lupus, certain types of Diabetes, and all forms of Arthritis. All these are caused by the immune system attacking its own cells in the body. Allergies are also the result of the immune system overreacting to certain substances and causes a reaction in the body like a rash, sneezing, and nasal congestion. A severe reaction can cause anaphylaxis, and this is life-threatening. The body basically goes into overdrive, and the responses are critical enough to threaten life.
Diabetes happens when the immune system attacks and destroys the cells in the pancreas. Rheumatoid Arthritis can also the result of the immune system attacking itself and destroys the joints. The immune system can also create many problems during organ transplants when the body rejects the organ as a seperate foreign substance that is in the body. This is why people with organ transplants must take medications that suppress the immune system. This can cause other problems, though, since the immune system is inhibited, and the body doesn’t fight other foreign substances in the body, an infection can occur.
You need to keep your immune system working correctly, especially since the earth is becoming more and more polluted. This is becoming a tough task, and people are suffering from many health problems because of it. Recent research has shown leading scientists to believe that certain sugars represent the next new and great frontier for researchers to find non-toxic compounds that will support and enhance the immune system function.
Sugars, called glyconutrients, have already been discovered, and there are eight of them so far. Unfortionalty only two are found in our diets. These eight essential sugars work to supply the body with glyconutrients that are needed for cell communication. When they are giving out noble peace prizes, Four of the last eight of them in medicine have gotten awarded for research into Glycobiology, which is the study of gluconutrients. A steady and regular supply of glyconutrients is needed for keeping the immune system working in good working order. It has been found that the body can recover and heal much faster when glyconutrients are used when administering for cancer treatment, chemotherapy, and radiation.
The problem is that the same toxins in the environment that weaken and tear down our delicate immune system can also affect the body’s ability to synthesize and use these glyconutrients. This is why we should take supplements of glyconutrients to get a regular supply of them into our bodies.
Our world is sadly becoming more and more polluted with contaminates and becoming damaged. The body is finding it more and more difficult to fight these illnesses through our natural immune system. It is now up to scientists to come up with ways to help us use our medical knowledge to come up with ways to help us combat the problem of the environment and the body’s need for more glyconutrients. It may mean our very existence as human beings for us to come up with a sustainable and working solution.
Something that is frequently asked of people is whether we fight germs while cleaning and whether these germs are actually killed during the cleaning process. Or do cleaning products just get up dirt and grime? Some misconceptions come from the media and commercials, and you get a variety of answers.
Some cleaning products advertise and claim that their products kill bacteria and viruses. And some do. But, most people will say. “Soap will adequately kill germs” This concept is wrong! The right sentence would be: “Most soap will adequately remove dirt and grime.” This is because soap isn’t designed to kill bacteria.
Disinfectants contain antimicrobial and antibacterial agents which will kill most bacteria and viruses on surfaces of objects. (A surface should be free of soil for effective disinfection.)
Disinfectant cleaners also contain surfactants to remove dirt and grime in addition to antimicrobial and antibacterial agents to kill germs. Therefore, these are very effective at cleaning the surface of things as well as killing bacteria and virus’s. Label instructions must be followed to ensure proper disinfection.
To make disinfectant and antimicrobial claims, the disinfectant products must get tested to make sure they work, and then they get registered with the Environmental Protection Agency.
Disinfection treatment is to destroy harmful microorganisms. Disinfectant is an agent that kills and inhibits the growth of disease-carrying microorganisms. Disinfection will reduce the number of microorganisms to safe levels.
The definition of cleaning is the process of making something free of dirt, grime, grease, and other unhealthy substances… To clean the proper way, heat has to get applied in the form of moist heat or steam along with chemicals and detergents plus the physical energy of rubbing the surface with friction.
Disinfectants do not clean appropriately by themselves. Plus, it is necessary to clean items or surfaces before you use disinfect them, and this is mainly because disinfectants are inhibited and neutralized with the presence of dirt and grime. Many people do not clean and disinfect properly, or they re-contaminate surfaces that have been sterilized by using dirty cloths to rinse.
There are many antibacterial cleaning products, from soap, cleaners, and foam to kitchen and bathroom cleaners. More than 80% of all liquid hand soaps and nearly 40% of bar soaps contain antibacterial agents. This may seem significant and great, but there is recent research that shows that having so many antimicrobial and antibacterial agents in cleaning products may cause the emergence of antibiotic-resistant bacteria.
Reading the product label to determine if there are antimicrobial ingredients will give you the directions and safety precautions. Most people will know that the things that make the product do its job, like killing germs or disinfecting surfaces, they may wonder what the “inert” or “other ingredients” are in a cleaning product. They aren’t just water, and they aren’t useless. They may include solvents that dissolve other ingredients or emulsifiers, which keep the ingredients suspended inside a liquid so that they will be applied evenly. And also fragrances and perfumes, to make them smell better, and a bunch of other things, like surfactants and detergents, that are designed to make cleaning easier.
Choosing the right cleaner is easy. You don’t have to spend much money on fancy cleaners. Many people are surprised that all you may need is some bleach or ammonia to do the job of disinfecting and using a generic brand of soap to get up the dirt and grime.
Keeping our homes clean is essential, but we must remember not to go overboard with disinfecting. We do not want to cause more antibiotic-resistant bacteria, which is becoming more and more of a problem as the company’s rush to put disinfectants in all their products.
Try to add as many of these tips to your daily routine, and you will surely be well on the way to a slimmer, healthier you. We don’t get fat “overnight” – so you should expect it to take a certain amount of time to lose that weight again, but don’t give up! Persistence, Determination and Grit – They should be your watchwords. These tips work – if you stick to your plan!
Do you experience difficulty falling or staying asleep? Do you awake often during the night or have restless sleep? Do you wake too early, or simply not feel refreshed in the morning? Assuming that there are not other factors affecting your sleep (such as young children or other health issues), these could be signs of insomnia.
Insomnia is a sleep disorder characterized by the above symptoms. People with insomnia typically suffer during the day from lack of sleep. Side effects from insomnia include fatigue, sleepiness, difficulty concentrating, and irritability, all due to a lack of quality nighttime sleep. Quality sleep is key–insomnia is characterized by the quality of sleep more so than the number of hours a person sleeps. The optimal number of hours of sleep a person needs each night varies from one person to the next. But interrupted, poor quality sleep can make a person tired and irritable, regardless of the total hours.
There are many types of insomnia. Essentially, insomnia is a symptom of other issues. External factors, such as stress, may cause insomnia, as can physical problems. People of all ages can suffer from insomnia, from young children to older adults. Identifying the root cause is essential for developing effective treatment options. Treatments for insomnia can range from making environmental changes in one’s daily life or sleeping area, to the use of prescribed medications. When medications are prescribed, it is usually for a short period of time.
A medical doctor or psychologist can determine if you have insomnia. The treatment process will depend on each specific case. However, there are things you can do on your own to help ensure a better night’s rest.
** Maintain a regular bedtime and awakening time throughout the week. Many people change their sleep schedule on the weekends, but this can make a sleep problem worse.
** Use your bed only for sleep and sexual intimacy. Avoid reading or eating in bed, watching TV, or engaging in other activities. This will help train your body to sleep when you go to bed.
** Avoid stimulants such as caffeine for four to six hours before going to bed. Exercise can also act as a stimulant, so avoid exercising within four hours of retiring for the night.
** Avoid going to bed hungry or over-full. Both conditions can make it difficult to sleep.
** Try to change arrange your life so that external stressors are limited. If you are worried about something, or a great deal of stress, sleep may be difficult.
These are only a few suggestions. Sleep specialists are able to work with you to determine specific causes of sleep disturbance. If there is concern of a physical problem, undergoing a sleep study can determine if you have apnea or other sleeping issues. Consult your regular physician or make an appointment with an ear, nose, and throat doctor, or visit a sleep specialist. Sleep deprivation caused by insomnia can be problematic in your daily life. Determining the cause of sleep problems and taking necessary actions to correct the problems can make a significant impact on your life.
The Corona Virus pandemic is sweeping the globe. Some countries are at crisis points in resources and medical care. People are paralyzed by fear. Medical care rationing is a real possibility. They will have to decide who gets medical care and who does not. This is real, and it is going to affect all aspects of the world and its people seriously.
Symptoms of Corona Virus is a lot like the regular flu. Fever, coughing, body ached, and headaches are common symptoms. It disproportionately affects all of the elderly and those with pre-existing conditions. The elderly are dying at alarming rates.
Wash your hands and don’t touch your face, coughing into your elbow, wearing a mask in public are a few ways to prevent it. Disinfecting your home is needed. This is especially true if people are leaving their homes and coming and going outside.
The most significant way to avoid getting the Coronavirus and to stop spreading it is isolation and staying home. If you have go out, wear a mask and wash up thoroughly when you come back. Completly avoid those with pre-existing conditions, compromised immune systems, and the elderly. These people are most at risk of dying from the Corona Virus.
As expected with human behavior, there are those hoarding, and there are limits to get essential resources. And there are those taking advantage of this crisis to make a buck. This can be avoided if we all work together and think of other people before ourselves.
Good stories ARE coming out of people helping their fellow man. This gives one hope for the world.
Then there are the economic worries. These are very real. They are saying that it will cause a deep recession. Millions will lose their jobs. Stores are closing, and resources are limited. There is the specter of economic collapse.
That being said, there IS hope. If positive human behavior wins out, we will all get through this is we work together and think of others before ourselves. Things may be truly different after this. We just don’t know. Let’s work together as brothers and sisters. We WILL get through it, and we WILL prevail. We are strong, and we are strong TOGETHER!
