A drop, or the effect on the body of one substance


Toxins can disrupt our physiological processes in many ways. They can do this quite uniquely, such as arsenic, a deadly poison that blocks the access of oxygen needed for the metabolism of glucose. Toxins can affect the enzyme necessary to exercise an important function of the body. Or, constantly stimulate a specific function so that it begins to cause damage to the body. Caffeine, which is used many times a day, stimulates the activity of glands producing adrenaline, resulting in the reaction "fight or run", which is accompanied by a rapid pulse, increased blood pressure and increased temperature, as the body prepares for intense action.
If caffeine regularly enters the body for some time, the adrenaline production system is depleted. Many patients who started the program and are forced to completely abandon caffeine, complain about his absence, stating that they can not do without him. Other toxins kill useful bacteria in the intestine, prevent the entry of oxygen into the red blood cells, disrupt the DNA synthesis process and block the absorption of various vitamins.

A drop, or the effect on the body of one substance

  1. Effect on the body of purified food substances
    Throughout evolution, the animal's body consumed only natural food, which, with very few exceptions, consisted of complexes of various substances. Therefore, it is not surprising that the mechanisms of the metabolism formed in phylogeny suggest, on the one hand, the supply of food substance in a natural form created by nature (and not separately proteins, carbohydrates, fats, iron,
  2. Effect on the body of a wrong combination of nutrients
    In the course of evolution, the animal organism, as a rule, had the opportunity at any given moment to consume only a uniform kind of food: either predominantly carbohydrate (vegetable), or protein or protein-fat (animal). In the end, this was fixed in the anatomical and physiological features of man, when the initial sections of the gastrointestinal tract (GIT) were mostly
  3. Storm, or the influence of many substances
    In my work, I had to learn to think about toxicity in such a way that it gave me the opportunity to help my patients. It was too difficult to consider each toxin separately and try to distinguish the harm caused to them. When I took a step back and, refusing a detailed study of the behavior of individual molecules, focused on the body as a whole, in front of me
  4. Anterograde of blockade of the II degree, or incomplete AV blockade with the absence of one or several consecutive sinus (atrial) impulses
    In 1894, T. Engelman reported that he observed on the frog's heart a progressive lengthening of the conduction from the atria to the ventricles, which resulted in the disappearance of one contraction. Five years later K. Wenckebach (1899) described the same phenomenon in humans and called it the Luciani periods by the name of the researcher, who in 1872 pointed to a similar phenomenon. In 1906, J. Hay discovered that when
  5. Nursing care for patients with a chest injury and (or) a closed, uncomplicated fracture of one or two ribs
    First aid: • Sitting the victim; • release from tight clothes (unbutton collar, belt); • Ensure free air access; • Cool the place of injury (ice pack, cold water bottle); • Anesthetize if possible (non-narcotic analgesics); • Send the victim to an emergency department
  6. . Medical-hygienic and sexual education of adolescents. Features of the hygienic approach to the regime of the day, study and personal hygiene of young men and girls. Mediko-hygienic approaches to the prevention of bad habits, venereal diseases in older schoolchildren. Prevention of AIDS. The effect of narcotic substances on the human body and offspring.
    Specific immunoprophylaxis of HIV infection is not developed. The educational preventive measures include: 1. the inclusion of the lesson in the course of the OBL 10-11 class 2. the carrying out of various kinds of activities for the youth aimed at the formation of responsible attitude to their actions in life. Medical preventive measures include: * Blood donor survey,
  7. Delirium not caused by alcohol or other psychoactive substances. Abstinent state with delirium, associated with the use of psychoactive substances
    Code for ICD-10 Delirium not caused by alcohol or other psychoactive substances F05 F10- F19 Abstinence status with delirium due to use of psychoactive substances F10.4, F11.4 F12.4 F13.4 F14.4 F15.4 F16.4 F17.4 F18.4 F19.4 Diagnosis When establishing a diagnosis Required level of consciousness, pupil size, neurological status, symptoms of defeat
  8. Distribution of substances in the body
    A severely wounded animal refuses food. And yet his wounds heal. A huge amount of blood entering the wound represents a large volume of food delivered to this place. Blood is the distributing intermediary in all higher forms of life. A fasting animal uses its nutrient reserves to restore torn or ripped tissues. These substances
  9. EXCHANGE OF SUBSTANCES AND ENERGY IN THE HUMAN ORGANISM
    The metabolism continuously flows in all cells, tissues and systems of the body and helps maintain life and preserve the constancy of the internal environment. As a result of metabolic processes, substances necessary for building cells and tissues are formed. Through the exchange of substances, the supply of energy to the body necessary for its vital activity is ensured, it is restored
  10. The effect of antimicrobial chemicals on microorganisms
    In addition to nutrient chemicals that have a positive effect on microorganisms, there are a number of chemicals that inhibit or completely stop their growth. Chemicals cause either microbicide (death of microorganisms), or microbostatic action (they stop their growth, but after the removal of this substance, growth resumes). Nature of action (microbicidal
  11. Influences of parasitic organisms on the homeostasis of ecosystems
    One of the most difficult environmental problems of general parasitology related to the problem of biodiversity in communities is the assessment of the influence of parasitic organisms and the parasitic systems they form on the homeostasis of ecosystems as a whole. Under homeostasis, in this case, we are considering a well-known concept in the environment, which is the ability of biological systems to withstand changes
  12. INFLUENCE OF HARMFUL FACTORS ON THE ORGANISM OF MOTHER AND FRUIT
    The mother-fetus system undergoes continuous exposure to a variety of environmental factors during pregnancy. Under the influence of these factors, the course of physiological relationships between the mother's organism and the fetus changes, resulting in a number of cases, various forms of pathology arise. Among the numerous environmental factors that can cause different forms
  13. How many sources of energy and matter does the human body have?
    It is too early to speak about the creation of the prerequisites for the development of a complete theory of human nutrition, for a core has not been found that would allow to unite into the harmonious system countless untold data accumulated by biochemists, biophysicists, physiologists and psychologists. In my view, any theory of nutrition can be considered as such if it answers the main question arising from the very
  14. The importance of nutrients in the provision of vital functions
    In addition to the quantitative (energy) side of nutrition, the "Physiological norms" also includes a qualitative side that characterizes the average human need for basic nutrients. According to the formula of balanced nutrition AA. Pokrovsky, for a day the human body requires more than 60 nutrients, divided into irreplaceable and replaceable factors, depending on
  15. Influence of the inflammation focus on the body
    Local disorders of blood supply and metabolic processes in the inflammation zone, as a rule, are combined with a complex of metabolic and functional disorders at the level of the whole organism. First of all, it should be noted that neutrophils, monocytes, and tissue macrophages that have emigrated and are excited in the inflammation zone have the ability to produce endogenous pyrogenes intensively. Process
  16. The effect on the body of food with spices and artificial additives
    It is difficult to accurately determine the amount of food additives that is used to make the food tasty, fragrant, externally attractive and designed for long storage. In addition to the well-known sugars and salt, it is a whole range of synthetic and mineral dyes, flavors, stabilizers, preservatives, antioxidants, accelerators, myoglobin fixatives, etc. It would seem,
  17. Negative effect on the organs and systems of the body
    The brain is the most active consumer of energy. The negative effect of alcohol on the brain is associated with a violation of oxygen access to neurons as a result of alcohol intoxication. Alcoholic dementia, which develops due to prolonged use of alcohol, leads to the social death of brain cells. The harmful effects of alcohol affect all systems of the human body
  18. How to do so that I do not feel guilty because sometimes I leave my wife at home alone with the children, and I go to my friend, to the store or just walk, breathe fresh air and think about myself?
    The sense of guilt is the main obstacle to the evolution of man. Because it arises from our beliefs, that is, on a mental level, the only way to avoid feelings of guilt is to change one's beliefs. You can read about the beliefs in the book, but first of all you must internally make sure: are you really to blame? Only the deliberate infliction of evil on someone can serve
