Sanitation Crew of the body?

As we breathe, sometimes small particles of bacteria may make it deep down the respiratory tract, landing on the walls of the trachea and bronchial tubes.  Special cells and glands, in the membranes that line these walls secrete a slightly sticky fluid, mucus, which trap and hold dirt, debris, and microorganisms.  That way, our lungs stay clear and clean!

The innate intelligence of the body relies on the immune system not just to repel unwanted microbes and bacteria, it is also to keep house inside the body.  Good health depends on order and consistency among body cells, tissues and organs.

The innate intelligence of the body through the immune system preserves this state of balance by removing dead or damaged cells and by seeking out and eliminating wayward mutant cells.

Through regular chiropractic care, your body is balanced by having full connectivity of with your innate intelligence!

Considering the number of potential interlopers, disease occurs very rarely.  This is no accident.  Nearly every human being possesses a sophisticated and efficient system that works 24 hours a day in every part of the body to ensure good health.

Known as the immune system, which is controlled by the innate intelligence of the body, this network of cells and organs responds almost instantaneously to the presence of any intruder, mustering its forces to halt the progress of an ebola virus or to thwart the efforts of a meningococcus bacterium.

Usually, we live in harmony with our microscopic residents.  Most stay on the body’s surface.  Under certain conditions, when we are malnourished, exhausted, injured, or if our internal resistance is not up to par and we have subluxations, resident organisms and other microbes may invade and multiply in our tissues, or set forth in the bloodstream  traveling to all parts of the body.  If unchallenged, they can upset the body’s delicate chemistry.  When this happens, the body functions may be compromised.

To keep one’s resistance high requires a good nerve supply.  A good nerve supply is part of the chiropractic objective.

We live in a world dense with microbes:  bacteria, virus and fungi abound in the air, water, and soil, and on the living things around us.  Most of these organisms have little interest in the human species.  Yet a specialized few find the human body an inviting habitat:  warm, protected, and well stocked with nutrients.

Some settle in the nose and ears, some on the skin and in the intestinal tract.

Are microbes and germs good for you? (3)

Experience shows that under usual conditions the remnants of animals and plants do not accumulate in nature.  Very rapidly they are consumed by germs and thereby taken through a chain of chemical alterations which break them down step by step into simpler compounds.  The germs themselves eventually die, and their bodies are also transformed by microbial action.  In this manner the constituents of all living things are returned to nature after death to be recycled.  Reduced to simpler forms, they are available for the creation of new microbial and plan life, which is eventually consumed by animals and human beings.

Microbes and germs thus constitute indispensable links in the chain that binds inanimate matter of life.

The power that animates the living world, including us, needs no help, just no interference.

Like the atmosphere, the present surface of the earth is also a part of the creation of life.  Everywhere, under natural conditions, the topsoil is alive with insects, grubs, earthworms, etc, transforming it chemically and physically.  This is true whether the soil supports forest, prairies, tundra, grasslands, farmlands, gardens or parks.  

Organic gardeners have legitimate scientific reasons to claim that earthworms contribute as much as fertilizers to the fertility of the soil.  In fact, the microbial forms of life which are invisible to the naked eye are at least as important as earthworms and insects.  Every speck of humus contains billions of living germs, belonging to countless different varieties, each specialized in the decomposition and transformation of one or another type of organic debris derived from animals, plants, or other types of microbes.  The expert can often detect the activities of germs in the soil simply by handling and smelling it when warm and humid weather increases the intensity of microbial life.

Surprising as it may seem, germs account fort a large percentage of the total mass of living matter on the earth.
