How does the immune system help maintain homeostasis?

Controls microbes: The specific and non-specific immune systems work together to maintain a balance with the microbial world. Bacteria and fungi that colonize the body's surfaces; the skin, the respiratory tract and the GI tract are met at those surfaces they do not invade. The micro biome (these colonizing microbes) play an important role in homeostasis.

How does the immune system maintains homeostasis?

How does the immune system maintains homeostasis?

Immune system: This is a very in-depth topic that could never be described with adequate detail in this little box. Please check out this website for specific information on the entire immune system. Http://www. Niaid. Nih. Gov/topics/immunesystem/pages/default. Aspx.

What are two specific ways in which the immune system will respond to a disease in order to restore homeostasis?

Homeostasis?: I am not sure what you mean by hemeostasis specifically in this question, but the immune system fights infection from viruses, bacteria and allergy. The different components IgG, M, and A and their subclasses rise and fall according to the body's need.

I am on a diet, how do I lose weight properly and maintain my immune system? Considering that I am sick and cant afford to do any diets any more.

Balance immune first: Imbalances in the immune system can be the primary cause for failed diets. Fix immune system first and weight loss will be easier and more lasting. You may contact me at www. Drkusher. Com. For more info...click on "Blog" link lower left and read Permanent Weight Loss article.

How can exercise help me maintain my immune system?

How can exercise help me maintain my immune system?

IT JUST CAN-believe.: Trust me, yes. Now you're getting into a lot of the biology and science of the human body, detailed analysis of immunity and the immune system, the plasticity and flexibility of the brain--once thought to be set in its ways, the human mind (the brain is physical matter, the mind is much much deeper, and machine will never even approach the complexity of the mind (no matter what cousin ray says)!

Why are regular visits to the doctor important for maintaining optimal immune system health?

Why are regular visits to the doctor important for maintaining optimal immune system health?

Not important: Rather keeping a healthy life-style is, visiting the doctor regularly for routine health maintenance or if having a chronic condition that needs to be attended-to regularly makes sense only if you follow doctor's advice. Remember: good night time sleep, fresh air and exercise, and lots of fruits and vegetables are the pillars of healthy life-style, hence good immune system, wish you wellness

How does the respiratory system help maintain homeostasis?

This is complex: By exhaling you get rid of co2 which helps control acidity, inhaling you bring in o2 energy metabolism. Inhaling and exhaling affect blood return to the heart as well as may affect the release of stress hormones probably an hour lecture to med students to cover.

How does the nervous system maintain homeostasis?

Complex physiology: Nervous system gets information from plenty of sources including specialized chemorecptors. These inputs lead to adjustments based upon any discrepancy and nervous system through hormones regulates the blood chemistry.

It absorbs all.: The nutrients you eat and stores/utilizes the ones you need and you defecate or urinate out the ones you don't

How does the circulatory system maintain homeostasis?

How does the circulatory system maintain homeostasis?

Too Many to Say Here: By circulating blood and other cells the circulatory system suppiles nutrients, energy, protection & a myriad of other things throughout the body to control the balance. It transports hormones to control all aspects of our body & it also helps control our core & extremities temperature and helps remove dead cells throughout the body. It would take books to say all the ways homeostasis is acheived.

By a very complex: Interplay of autonomic nervous system with various organs like the kidneys, brain, and hormonal messengers. Is this a question on an exam?

What happens to the endocrine system if homeostasis is not maintained?

What happens to the endocrine system if homeostasis is not maintained?

Depends: If the endocrine system is not maintained well, hormones start to be disrupted, various things can happen. Depending on the hormone you can have weight gain, loss of muscle, increase in inflammation, fatigue, poor sleep. This all starts the process towards dis-ease which eventually if not stopped leads to disease. Integrative medicine works on balancing the body at all times.

What will happen to the body's nervous systems & endocrine systems if homeostasis is not maintained?

What will happen to the body's nervous systems & endocrine systems if homeostasis is not maintained?

Dysregulation: If homeostasis is completely lost, the body's nervous system and endocrine system would both become dysregulated. You could see all kinds of metabolic and acid-base problems, with altered mental status (delirium, hallucinations, etc) plus blood pressure changes and more. Thankfully, the body knows exactly how to respond to various conditions, so that homeostasis is dynamic, not static.

What happens to the body's nervous system if homeostasis is not maintained?

Depends: There are many systems in the body that need to be regulated. For instance, if blood pressure goes too high you can stroke; if there is too much cholesterol, you can stroke or get nerve damage. If the immune system is not under control, the brain and nerves can be damaged. If you have vitamin deficiencies or excess, the nerves and the brain could be damaged, etc.

How is homeostasis maintained in relation to the cv and repiratory systems?

How is homeostasis maintained in relation to the cv and repiratory systems?

System: The two systems work together and require each other to function. If they weren't connected, symmetry and coordination wouldn';t be effective. As exercise demand increases both respiration increases and heart rate increases together to provide oxygen and glucose to the tissues.

What are the nervous system and endocrine system specialized to do to maintain homeostasis?

That's a big question: That's a big question that people dedicate their lives to study and find out. All the systems are important in "homeostasis". Narrowing which "homostasis" to a single function or a specific organ may allow a more specific explanation; but still lots and lots of effects.

Which of the following is not a way that the cardiovascular system helps to maintain homeostasis of the body? The blood carries nutrients to the

Homeostasis: You shouldn't just think of the cardiovascular system alone. A better question is how does your body maintain homeostasis? A simple answer is your body is composed of various systems. They interact with each other to help maintain your body's homeostasis. If there is anything wrong with any one of the systems, homeostasis of your body will be thrown off, which is what happens in a disease process
