2 lungs to breathe? (4)

The tears that flow out through special ducts from your eyes into your nose are very important!  They help to moistened and purify the air you breathe.  Also, they contain a germ-killing substance called “lysozyme“.

Again, we see the importance of maintaining a good nerve supply to the lungs, as the innate intelligence of the body uses the brain and nerve system to control and coordinate the respiratory system .

What are some of the residents of the body?

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… just a few specialized ones 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 the intestinal track.

What about the assistance of fever? (3)

Fever even increases production of T-cells which you now know are responsible for the immune response within the body.

As the lymphocytes, phagocytes, and antibodies begin to overcome the virus, the innate intelligence of the body uses suppressor T-cells to signal the defenders to bring their efforts to a halt.  Your head clears, your runny nose dries up, you can swallow easily again.  All that without medications.

Trappers or garbage collectors?

Welcome to the 45 new subscribers to my blog.  For those of you who came to the office last week, you SAW first hand how I am a TRANSFORMER and that your are not a chicken.  You are…

It is a immense privilege to participate in the transformation of your life by moving toward a full innate expression of who YOU truly are.

Within your body are membranes that line its internal surfaces, including the respiratory and digestive tracts, and they are as much a part of the body’s protective covering as the skin is, even though we rarely think of them as such.  These membranes encounter microbes and other foreign material in quantity, and therefore, must be armed with a set of defenses equal to the skin’s.

In the respiratory tract, (the air passages that lead to the lungs, such as the nose, trachea, and bronchial tubes) a collection of highly efficient mechanisms work around-the-clock to ensure that only moist temperate air, almost free of debris, reaches the lung’s air sacs.

Are we working overtime? (3)

Let us understand, that under viral attack, cells in the mucus membranes of the nose release histamine, blood capillaries in the area dilate, and blood serum leaks into the tissues of the membrane.  The membrane swells.

Some of its tissues secrete more mucus, not all of which can move up through the constricted nasal passages.  The excess simply runs out.  An overload of mucus in the throat excites nerve endings that stimulate a cough, which clears the passage before the virus-laden mucus can move down into the lungs.

The swelling and cell damage stimulates receptors in the nose, triggering a sneeze.  Your head feels stuffy and congested, your nose runs your throat is sore.

Each sneeze and cough releases outside the body a spray of droplets loaded with virus particles in an attempt to heal the body from the cold.

Is there a bug going around (4)

As blood bathes the infected area, the throat becomes red and raw.  Meanwhile, some of the fluid in the extra blood in the infected area drains out of the capillaries and into the “Nasopharynx,” the area behind the mouth where the nose and throat join.

This fluid mixes with mucus to produce the runny nose and stuffed-up feelings usually associated with cold.  Fever increases metabolism and promotes healing by spurring the elimination of dead cells and the creation of new ones.  Fever also heat the body temperature beyond the range for viral reproduction.

All these incredible events are all under the direct control of the innate intelligence of the body using the nerve system to carry out its intent.

Is there a bug going around? (2)

Fatigue, stress, overworking, lack of sleep, anxiety and poor diet are all life factors that contribute to vertebral subluxation which in turn causes a change in normal nerve supply to the body.  This condition upsets the delicate ecology of the throat, leaving it dry, less acidic and a bit cooler.  These changes allow virus particles to penetrate the mucus layers, invade throat cells and reproduce.

Curing a cold therefore, does not involve  “eradicating cold germs”, but rather restoring healthy tissue equilibrium that inhibit viral reproduction.  Strange as it may seem, that is precisely what cold symptoms do.

Sore throat, runny nose, stuffy head and fever are the manifestation of the body’s efforts to re-establish a healthy balance in the throat.  The appearance of cold symptoms means that the body has deployed it healing forces.

How can we protect ourselves against diseases?

Watching television, you would think we live at bay, in total jeopardy, surrounded on all sides by enemies, human-seeking germs, shielded against infection and death on by a chemical technology that enable us to keep killing them off.

We are instructed to spray disinfectants everywhere, into the air of our bedrooms and kitchens and with special energy into our bathrooms, since it is our very own germs that seem the worst kind.

We explode clouds of aerosol into our noses, mouths, underarms, privileged crannies… even into the intimate insides of our telephones.
