OUR IMMUNE SYSTEM
The immune system protects the body and the various organs, cell types and proteins from pathogens and from pathogenic cell changes, and thus of course from all attackers and harmful substances etc., whereby it does not make itself noticeable, but simply functions silently and smoothly and keeps the body’s own defenses under control. The immune system fails, however, when it is weakened or can no longer do anything against particularly aggressive pathogens, consequently the body then becomes ill. This can explicitly be the case when a pathogen is still unknown to the immune system. Without this system, the body in its inner organism would be exposed to harmful influences from the environment just as defenselessly as the entire body exterior, whose main task is to protect it by the body’s own defensive measures against pathogens and injuries, and additionally by clothing, etc. The body’s own immune system must be able to protect the body from the effects of pathogens and injuries. Basically, however, the human being himself has to be concerned to strive intellectually and rationally to keep his immune system healthy by internal and external measures etc. and thus to protect himself from suffering, diseases, injuries and body, organ and also psychic damages etc. and to make harmless everything that can affect his health system in any negative way. In the first place, man himself, through his in tellectum, his intellect and his reason, must be anxious to recognize everything harmful and to keep it away from his body and from the whole internal and external organism, or, if he is afflicted by harmful agents, he must remove them from the body or neutralize them, which may be necessary, as a rule, by means of a professionally correct medicinal treatment. This is the case when microbes, bacteria, parasites, fungi, viruses and toxic pollutants as pathogens cause ailments or diseases that require specialist treatment throughout. This is the case when the following pathogens occur, for example:
- microbes or microorganisms: fungi, e.g. molds, filamentous fungi, sprout fungi
- viruses, such as influenza, hepatitis and noroviruses
- bacteria, such as staphylococci, enterobacteria, pseudomonads, salmonellae
- parasites, such as helminths or worms, amoebae, lambliae
- pollutants of any kind from the environment, like poisons of any kind
- bodily injuries, caused by accidents and other factors.
Microbes are tiny living beings, too small to be seen with the naked eye, but which surround the entire human body, but are also found in the air, in water, in the earth and practically on and in everything and everyone that exists. The human body alone is inhabited by millions and millions of these tiny microorganisms or microbes. Some of them are pathogens, while others are absolutely vital for the health and existence of man. If we look at the most common of these microbes, the first ones to be mentioned are the fungi and viruses, while there is also another group, which are microorganisms that cause diseases, such as malaria and toxoplasmosis. What remains to be said in relation to individual pathogens is the following:
Bacteria/bacilli. Bacteria are unicellular organisms, some of which need oxygen to survive, while others can do without it, some tolerate heat, while others prefer to live in a cold environment. These are unicellular spore-forming rod-shaped organisms. Bacteria can produce their own offspring and have a metabolism. They are unicellular organisms without a cell nucleus. Everything that bacteria need to live and reproduce is located in their cells.
Bacteria are also needed, among other things, to produce certain foods, such as yogurt, sauerkraut or cheese.
Bacteria have their special name because of their rod shape. Bacilli are generally equated with bacteria and with pathogens. From a technical point of view, bacilli are also equated with bacteria, although bacilli correspond to a subform of several genera, including cocci or nucleus or sphere bacteria. All in all, they are found in many parts of the human body, whereby many, as already mentioned, are benign and useful and even vital for the human organism, others, however, are harmful. The latter must be contained, especially in the oral cavity, through regular and proper oral and dental hygiene, because in the oral and dental cavity – especially in the case of dental decay – new dangerous pathogens are constantly forming and multiplying, which can lead to fatal consequences. If the whole is considered, then it is recognized that in principle the fight against bacilli etc. must be led lifelong.
Microbes/microorganisms are tiny living beings, much too small to be seen with the naked eye, as already explained.
Viruses are not living beings in the true sense of the word, but only simple organic structures that have no metabolism of their own, but which invade healthy cells of the human organism (as they do in animals, vertebrates and other forms of life) and thereby cause suffering and disease.
Therefore, they are not living organisms, but rather consist of one or more molecules enclosed in a protein shell containing genetic information needed by the viruses to reproduce.
Many viruses are responsible for many ailments and diseases, while others are harmless to humans or cause only a troublesome cold and other insignificant health-related harmless phenomena, while others, however, can unrestrainedly cause serious or even life-threatening diseases, such as. These include Corona disease, AIDS, hepatitis A, hepatitis B, influenza, Japanese encephalitis, human papillomavirus, hepatitis, measles, mumps, poliomyelitis, rabies, severe diarrhea caused by rotavirus, rubella, varicella, and yellow fever.
Viruses invade healthy cells and replicate from there. Without such a host cell, a virus cannot replicate. Not all viruses are such that they cause symptoms, and in many cases it is even the case that the body can fight the invaders so successfully that no outbreaks of disease occur, as is the case, for example, with lip herpes, which is very widespread among many people. Thus, cold sores are triggered by viruses that are located in certain nerve cells and lead to cold sores in some people when the immune system is overstrained.
It is relatively difficult to fight viruses with drugs because they are not life forms, but only lifeless organic structures that have no metabolism and therefore no nutritional process and therefore cannot absorb and digest any drug substances. However, vaccinations can ‘train’ the body’s defenses and thus make the body less sensitive to the pathogens.
Fungi are very widespread and also adapted to many different habitats, including the household and living areas of people, where in this regard are probably the best known molds of all kinds. However, fungi also occur naturally in some species on the skin or in the body of humans, whereby they can also cause ailments and diseases or mycoses, which often appear as foot and nail fungi.
Fungi can also cause severe infections and even pneumonia in humans, as well as inflammation of the mucous membranes in the mouth.
Fungi in humans are not harmless and can also be carried and transmitted to other people, especially when sexual organs are infected by fungus and sexual acts are nevertheless performed.
Fungi that affect body organs can be easily cured, but if complications occur, they can become life-threatening.
Fungi can also be useful, because plant fungi of certain varieties are edible and therefore serve as food for humans, as various fungi for him but also have helpful properties, such as a mold from which the antibiotic penicillin can be obtained.
But again back to the immune system, because in addition it is to be said still that particularly in the cold season temperature fluctuations and by heatings produced dry air fast for the fact provide that the body-gene immune defenses become unsteady, whereby humans become more susceptible for colds as well as flu infections, consequently an effectively healthy immune system is of special importance, because alone this protects humans against diseases. The task of the immune system is then always it:
1. distinguishes its own components from foreign invaders and then fights these strangers in order to eliminate them as harmful invaders, pollutants and toxic substances, etc.
2. The immune system is – simply explained – the defense system of the body itself and of the entire internal body organism. It ensures that pathogenic microorganisms of all harmful kinds, such as bacteria and viruses, fungi, germs and parasites, etc., which enter the body organism, are fought and prevented from causing an infection. However, the immune system is not an independent organ, but is made up of numerous components, including organs such as the skin, the spleen and the entire intestine, with the large intestine fulfills a very important task. Together with other endogenous systems, these organs protect the entire organism from suffering, disease and infirmity.
The immune system is man’s innate protection against harmful viruses, bacteria and pollutants of all kinds that can make him ill, and therefore it is of particular importance and significance for him to always keep his immune system fully functional so that he can rely on it every day and all the time and thus ensure his health.
Vital substances correspond to substances foreign to the body and substances by which all organs involved in maintaining health and building up the immune system are activated when the substances are supplied to them. The proteins on the surface of fungi and viruses also belong to these substances. When these dock onto special defense cells, a whole series of cellular processes are triggered and set in motion. After an initial contact with a pathogen, the corresponding information emanating from the pathogen is usually stored. If a new contact of the same kind occurs, the stored information is immediately retrieved, and the attacked immune system is activated more quickly to defend itself and fight the pathogen.
3. The immune system is man’s innate protection against harmful viruses, bacte- ria and pollutants of all kinds that can make him ill, and therefore it is of particular importance and significance for him to keep his immune system always fully in function, so that he can rely on it every day and all the time and thus ensure his health.
What else has to be considered in order to maintain the immune system, to keep it healthy and strong, for this it is important to make sure that the whole body is always given enough exercise and enough sleep, just as the whole respiratory system, deep into the lungs, needs fresh, healthy and oxygenated breathing air.
What is particularly harmful and greatly impairs the effectiveness and strength of the immune system and makes people prone to suffering and disease are the following factors:
Smoking should be refrained from, because it is – as is generally known – very harmful to health, especially with regard to the lungs, although it is little or not at all known that the immune system also suffers greatly, is impaired and weakened.
Alcohol also has an adverse effect on the immune system, therefore – if alcohol has to be consumed – it should only be consumed in moderation.
Drugs of chemical nature (possibly also natural) can be harmful to health, even if they are prescribed by a doctor and are capable of recovery and therefore curative or are considered almost harmless – especially the painkillers that are usually ready to hand for every little ache without hesitation.
Pain tablets/powder, etc., contain harmful toxins etc., which dock as pain messengers to the pain receptors of the nerve endings in the tissue and not only inhibit the sensation of pain, but also have a negative weakening effect on the entire immune system. This is because the pain-relieving substances effectively correspond to dangerous poisons, such as Paracetamol, Naproxen and Diclofenac.
Paracetamol/Naproxen = stomach ulcers; Diclofenac = heart attacks, contain toxins and are hazardous to health. Paracetamol is contained in most painkillers, and an overdose can be fatal, but normal use alone can lead to severe liver failure. In addition, any analgesic containing paracetamol greatly increases the risk of heart attack, stomach ulcer and stroke. Kidney damage and internal bleeding in the digestive tract can also result, just as the skin can be attacked by paracetamol. In the worst cases, fatal consequences result.
Paracetamol also causes liver damage by breaking the connections between liver cells. If these are destroyed, then the structure of the liver tissue is also damaged, whereby the cells can no longer function properly and these also eventually perish. An overdose of paracetamol can be fatal. Taking painkillers – with Paracetamol, or possibly without – can lead to liver failure.
Furthermore, the risk of heart attack, stomach ulcer and stroke etc. is greatly increased by painkillers of all kinds, as already explained by Sfath. This, while also by earthly-scientific researches it was determined that by altogether all pain killers, which contain Paracetamol, malicious side effects develop, like the following, which I copied here as list from the Internet, whereby other pain medicine additions and their active substances in my opinion similar side effects time:
- increase of liver enzymes (serum transaminases),
- reduction of blood platelets (thrombocytopenia),
- decrease in white blood cells (agranulocytosis),
- allergic reactions (skin rash/hives),
- shock reaction,
- narrowing of the airways (analgesic asthma).
In addition it is to be probably still said – which is not mentioned however – that completely particularly humans are health-endangered by pain means side effects, possibly life-threatening, which have to fight with predominance and/or Fettleibigkeit, alcoholics are or from a bad nutrition suffer. If painkillers are taken too often or in excess, it can lead to severe liver poisoning as well as other liver damage, etc., especially with problems such as overweight or obesity, frequent alcohol consumption, poor diet as well as drug use.
