Do you know the inflammation response? (2)

Even though the end of the world did not happen this weekend, the innate intelligence of the body is constantly controlling ALL of the function of your body and after the bacteria has been gobbled up, larger white blood cells, the macrophages, begin to arrive.  These scavengers sweep over the site, wrapping their finger-like pseudopods around the bacteria and eating them.  Macrophages also devour dead neutrophils and other debris.

For hours, often days, the white blood cells muster forces to defeat the invading horde and prepare the way for the process of healing and repair.

Can you sense the healing process within your body?  That is exactly how it works!

Amazing isn’t it?
