The health tip for the week
of Sep. 27-Oct. 3, 2009 is:
Always remember that your body is the only body you will
get in your life.
Take good care of your own body!
Learn how it works and maintain it with great care!
Your human body is an amazing machine that has
enormous capabilities to regenerate and rebuilds itself (of course with your
This is the only vehicle that you can rebuild on your
own at any point in time and make it from an old Volkswagen ��� a brand new
The only case when the human body is beyond repair is
when you are dead otherwise it is up to you to become fit, healthy, happy and
What do you know about your body Circulatory Systems?
Human body has two
1)The Cardiovascular System
2)The Lymphatic System
Let���s look at the Human Cardiovascular System first.
The Human Cardiovascular
System consists of 3 components:
Vessels (Arteries, V
eins and Capillaries)
The Heart is a muscular pump that simultaneously pumps blood through Two
Circuits of Blood Vessels.
1) The Pulmonary Circuit.
The right side of the Heart pumps oxygen-poor blood to the Lungs
along the Pulmonary Artery, and oxygen-rich blood returns from the Lungs to the left side of the Heart along the Pulmonary Vein.
2) The Systemic Circuit
The left side of the Heart pumps oxygen-rich blood along the Aorta
(Aorta is a major Artery), which
divides into smaller Arteries through which the oxygen-rich blood supply the body���s organs with oxygen.When the oxygen from the oxygen-rich blood is consumed by the organs, the oxygen-poor blood is empty from the
organs into the Veins attached to
All Veins merge to form the
Superior Vena Cava and Inferior Vena Cava, which empty the oxygen-poor blood
into the right side of the Heart, thereby completing the circuit.
Next week I will continue
with the Human Cardiovascular System,
but for now it is good to notice how important for your body health is the Quality of the Air you Breathe.
The cleaner and richer of
oxygen is the air you breathe the greater is the chance you will be healthy.
If20there is not enough oxygen
in the air you breathe (closed windows environment or air polluted
environment), there will be not enough oxygen for your organs to function
normally and the greater is the chance these organs to begin to malfunction and
subsequently you will become sick.
For this reason take every opportunity to get out and
breathe fresh and clean air.When
outside does 10 minutes deep breathing exercise.
Some studies suggest that these 10 minutes a day are
giving you on average 8 years longer life.
