THE BODY SYSTEMS APPROACH
TO NATURAL HEALTH
(part V and VI)

You will recall in past issues we have discussed the importance of the Digestive System, the Intestinal System and the Circulator System. Today I plan to speed things up and introduce 2 new systems; The Nervous System and the Immune System.

THE NERVOUS SYSTEM:

The primary function of the nervous system is to communicate responses between the internal and external environments of the body. This system consists of:
The brain
Spinal cord
Peripheral system
Sensory system (ears, eyes, nose and tongue)

Imbalances in the nervous system interfere with our responses to the external environment and can cause us to react negatively towards stressors. A nervous system imbalance can affect all the body systems and interfere with our overall well-being.

THE IMMUNE SYSTEM:

The immune system is not an organ or group of cells; rather, it is a sum of the body's defense functions against unwanted invaders. This system consists of:

White blood cells
T-cells
Macrophages
Lymphokines
Immunoglobins
Superoxide dismutase
Histamine

The overall function of immune defenses is to correctly identify and eliminate metabolic waste, cell mutations and allergens. Immune processes are a part of every cell and affect all the systems of the body. A healthy immune system is essential for good health.

Editors note: My personal experience showed that as my nervous system strengthened so too did my over all health and ability to fight, not only the pains associated with RA but as well, everyday colds and flus.. Meditation is one method, used by many to relieve stress, personally I had a problem bringing my mind to a place where it was relaxed enough to allow the deep levels of meditation required for healing until I learned of a method using Holosync Sound Technology. This method of meditation has been very successful for me and I would be pleased to offer you a sample of how this works.

To receive a free sample of the holosync meditation go to https://www.centerpointe.com/links.php?ad=30783, scroll down the left side of the page to the picture of a headset and click. Please listen using a stereo headset and relax with eyes closed while the soothing sounds aid you to relax. The site also offers a free demo cd which you can have mailed to your home.
