However there is another ways that people can get ill for example people can be with a low defence if they feel depress this is cause as they may have emotional or social problems with themselves or society, this can cause a health problem.
There are many kinds of body systems, working together to create a functioning body. Different body systems work with certain body systems, but all work together. Like, nervous system and muscular system, circulatory system and respiratory system, and so on.
➢ Physical disease or a Physical illness – This type of disease affects the functioning parts of the human body. Some examples of physical diseases are; Bronchitis, Coronary Heart Disease and Arthritis.
t is very important to take care of your body because taking care of your body means taking of your bodies systems which make your body function properly. A body system is a group of organs that work together to carry out a particular task. The skeletal system is all of the bones in your body. The skeletal system provides support for the body, protects the internal organs, and it works as a supportive framework for muscles and enables limbs and digits to move. Another system is the muscular system which is all the muscles in your body. The muscles we see and feel are skeletal muscles. You also have muscles in your body which are called smooth muscles, these muscles work automatically to move things inside the body. Another system is the nervous system, this system consists of your brain, spinal cord, and nerves.
These diseases are caused by hereditary or genetic defects, and, although some disorders present at birth or in early childhood, the disorders can affect anyone, regardless of age or gender. Some affect a single part of the immune system; others may affect one or more components of the system.
All the systems in the human body are vital to our survival and well-being. If you take away the functions of just one of these systems our whole body will cease to work properly. The main systems of the human body are the nervous, endocrine respiratory, circulatory, immune, digestive, excretory, skeletal, muscular, and the reproductive systems. They all work together in harmony and unison to keep us alive.
I decided to read the book Why Zebras Don’t Get Ulcers chapter 8 a chapter we didn’t cover in class. The chapter is named Immunity, stress, and disease which made me interested in the chapter. The reason is because, in the past, I have been sick many times and want to see how stress may impact from someone getting sick. Reading the chapter first thing that caught my attention was how the body’s immune system works. The system is very complex and has many ways to which it protects us from infectious agents. I also learned how stress may inhibit the immune functions, but also there may be other factors that contribute as well. The human immune system fascinates me and I want to learn more about it. The fact is killing bacteria, makes antibodies
Like the world around us the medical field is always changing. It is always pushing forward, trying to understand mysteries of the human body that have boggled researchers for decades. What confuses scientists more, are the organisms or conditions that create these abnormalities that can send the human body into a downward spiral. Disease is something that has affected human civilization since the dawn of time. It can either be chronic or acute, but in either case it has the potential to bring havoc to the human body systems that can lead to devastating consequences. Generally there are two main types of diseases, ones caused by invading pathogens and those which are hereditary. One hereditary disease that can be particularly tragic is
People with stress also engage in behaviors that are not good for their immune system. This is shown many times in Evicted when people get sick and get diagnosed with a disease after years of living in poverty, getting evicted, or being stressed. For example, Scott grew up in awful conditions and was in poverty as a child, but later was able to educate himself and get a good job. Unfortunately, after an incident at his nursing home that he worked at and his doctor retiring, he became very stressed out and started taking prescription drugs. He also began stilling drugs from people at the nursing home. This affected him a lot and he had to leave his job and live in poverty due to all the money he spent on drugs. After all of these events, he became even more stressed, which made his health even worse. Similar to what the textbook said, when people are stressed, they do things that are not good for their bodies, such as stop exercising, not sleeping well, not eating well, and turning to drugs and alcohol. For Scott, he turned to drugs and alcohol when he was stressed, which affected his life in a negative way. Another example was Ned, who had the stress of having to move his family after an eviction. The eviction was a huge stress on him. He began to miss work and make mistakes at work. This lead to him getting fired from his construction
Health is affected, positively and negatively, by many factors. At an individual level there many factors that affect health and these include are fixed biological factors, such as age, sex and genetic makeup, as well as potentially modifiable lifestyle factors, such as smoking, diet and exercise.
In my review of chronic illnesses, there were many contributing factors associated with the causes such as environmental, habits in diet, genetic predisposition and age. Asthma is a condition where the airways are swollen and extra mucus is produced which makes it difficult to breath. People would asthma may experience shortness of breath and chest pain. Inhalers can assist in the treatment but there is no cure present. Another chronic illness is Type 2 Diabetes which affects how the body processes glucose, whether it is resisting the hormone insulin, or unable to produce an efficient amount. Symptoms associated with this type of diabetes includes frequent urination, fatigue and vision that is blurred. There are medications to treat the illness, but the disease is lifelong. Osteoporosis is an aging condition in which bones are weak. Linked with this disorder is loss of height, stoop posture and back pain. There are medication used to assist with this condition as well as healthy habits such as calcium intake and exercise. Coronary artery disease occurs when there is plague build up in the arteries and leads to the decrease in blood circulation. Symptoms connected to the disease include chest pain, heart attacks and shortness of breath. The final disease I read about which a neurological disorder that triggers seizures is
Immune system disorders can result in unusual and recurrent infections and can cause extreme limitations to one organ or lesser degrees of limitation to two or more organs. Immune system disorders are categorized into three different categories: autoimmune disorders, immune
There many diseases and conditions that can affect the human body, that may be unpredictable. It may affect different systems of the body, and there might not be cure or treatment. The body consists of three main systems the Integumentary System, Skeletal System, and the Muscular System, which help us with our everyday lives. For example, the Integumentary System is the largest organ in the body, which provides protection from viruses and other diseases. Our skin helps regulate body temperature and eliminate waste.
many more. Some disease can pass to family members and could cause death. Diseases are
Research is looking into genetic, hormonal and environmental risk factors in the cause of diseases. Possible exposure to certain things in the environment like the sun, infections, drugs, or, in some cases, pregnancy, may cause the immune system to
