Major Systems of the Body

Job 34:15 All flesh shall perish together, and man shall turn again unto dust.

  • 1.

    Skeletal System: fencing/protection and structural support.

    Central Nervous System: command center‐‐mind (brain), spinal cord, and nerves. sending information, receiving information, processing information.

  • 3.

    Senses: organs by which we receive communication from the outside world and by which we communicate with the outside world.

  • 4.

    Respiratory System: organs used for breathing.

  • 5.

  • 6.

    Excretory System: eliminating urinary wastes from the body

  • 7.

    Cardiovascular System: circulatory system‐‐heart, blood, blood vessels.

  • 8.

    Reproductive System: multiplication/reproductive organs.

  • 9.

    Endocrine System: communicating within the body using hormones secreted into the blood.

    Lymphatic System: Immune system protects the body from pathogens. Vaccinations (which we do not trust) inject a pathogen directly into the body (bypassing the normal blockages to entry) and the body itself creates antibodies in response to it. If the disease comes around later, the body already has antibodies. The immune system is the hero, not the vaccination. Antibiotics stave off the invading pathogen allowing the immune system to work with less hinderance. The immune system, again, is the hero. A body nourished with good (non‐GMO), whole foods is critical to good health.
