THE BODY SYSTEMS APPROACH
TO NATURAL HEALTH
(part VI and VII)
In previous issues we have discussed the importance of the Digestive System, Intestinal System, Circulatory System, Nervous System, and The Immune System. Today we will continue this series with an explanation of The Respiratory System and The Urinary System, and then finally with the next issue finish this series off with The Glandular System and the Structural System.

My hope is to show you the 9 different systems of the body, how they work in harmony with each other and the importance of caring for each system to enhance overall health and well being.

THE RESPIRATORY SYSTEM: Blood cells need oxygen to survive. The lungs perform vital function of drawing fresh air into the body and expelling air that has been used, and the airborne toxins. This system consists of:
Lungs
Trachea
Throat
Mouth
Sinuses

The lungs are a "gas exchange" unit. The blood that enters the lungs is dark red in color. After being re-oxygenated, blood leaves the lungs regenerated and the color changes to bright red. Imbalances of the respiratory system often affects the immune, circulatory and nervous systems.

Editors Note: Here is the perfect place for me to plug the importance of proper breathing techniques, deep breathes 3 seconds in through the mouth, allowing the air to travel right down into the stomach area, relax, then exhale 5 seconds out through a slightly opened mouth. Using this method of breathing allows the body proper amounts of oxygen to assist each of our systems to work efficiently.

Simply practicing these breathing techniques 2 – 3 times per day for 10 minute intervals will cause many people to notice an increase in energy, focus and overall well being.

THE URINARY SYSTEM: The primary functions of the urinary system are to maintain proper fluid balance in the body and to remove harmful toxins from the blood and eliminate them as urine. This system consists of:

Kidneys
Bladder
Ureter
Urethra

Imbalances in the urinary system often affect the glandular and circulatory system, particularly the reproductive organs, adrenal glands and the major blood vessels.

Editors Note: To cleanse the body most effectively of toxins, fluid in means fluid out and the outgoing fluid helps carry the everyday toxins from the body. The most natural method to assist the body in this task is to provide the body enough clean water each day. General recommendations are 8 glasses of water per day, although I have heard it as high as ½ ounce of water per pound of body weight.
