Circulatory System

(Heart, Arteries, Veins, Lungs, Liver)

The circulatory system is the body’s transport system. It is made up of a group of organs that transport blood throughout the body. The heart pumps the blood and the arteries and veins transport it. Oxygen-rich blood leaves the left side of the heart and enters the biggest artery, called the aorta. The aorta branches into smaller arteries, which then branch into even smaller vessels that travel all over the body. When blood enters the smallest blood vessels, which are called capillaries, and are found in body tissue, it gives nutrients and oxygen to the cells and takes in carbon dioxide, water, and waste. The blood, which no longer contains oxygen and nutrients, then goes back to the heart through veins. Veins carry waste products away from cells and bring blood back to the heart , which pumps it to the lungs to pick up oxygen and eliminate waste carbon dioxide.

Detoxification Organs System

(The organ systems involved include the lungs, the skin, and the digestive tract, but two organs are especially important: the liver and the kidneys)

Different tissues detoxify in varying ways..

  • Lungs can detoxify by removing gases (gas anesthetics are removed from the body by the lungs).
  • Skin can detoxify by reducing the penetration of toxic substances (toxins in water don’t get in through the skin well; however, toxins in oils do penetrate easily).
  • Digestive System (colon/large and small intestines) can detoxify by eliminating toxic foods, by either vomiting or diarrhea.
  • Kidneys detoxify by secreting toxins or filtering toxins out of the blood into urine.
  • Liver detoxifies by changing the chemical nature of many toxins and those that need to be eliminated are either carried out by bile into your small intestine or carried by the blood to your kidneys.

Digestive System

(Mouth, Esophagus, Stomach, Small intestine, Large intestine, Rectum, Anus, Liver, Gallbladder, Pancreas (the part that produces enzymes), Appendix, 70% of Immune System)

The digestive system is made up of organs that break down food into protein, vitamins, minerals, carbohydrates, and fats, which the body needs for energy, growth, and repair. After food is chewed and swallowed, it goes down the esophagus and enters the stomach, where it is further broken down by powerful stomach acids. From the stomach the food travels into the small intestine. This is where your food is broken down into nutrients that can enter the bloodstream through tiny hair-like projections. The excess food that the body doesn’t need or can’t digest is turned into waste and is eliminated from the body.

Endocrine System

(Hormone glands – Thyroid, Pituitary, Parathyroid, Adrenal, Thymus, Pineal body, Pancreas, Ovaries, Testes)

The endocrine system is made up of a group of glands that produce the body’s long-distance messengers, or hormones. Hormones are chemicals that control body functions, such as metabolism, growth, and sexual development. The glands, which include the pituitary gland, thyroid gland, parathyroid glands, adrenal glands, thymus gland, pineal body, pancreas, ovaries, and testes, release hormones directly into the bloodstream, which transports the hormones to organs and tissues throughout the body.

Immune System

{Skin, Mucous Membranes, Small Intestines (70% of Immune System Resides Here) Thymus and Bone Marrow, and secondary lymphatic tissues such as Spleen, Tonsils, Lymph Vessels, Lymph Nodes, Lymphocytes/White Blood Cells, Adenoids, and Liver}

The immune system is our body’s defense system against infections and diseases. Organs, tissues, cells, and cell products work together to respond to dangerous organisms (like viruses or bacteria) and substances that may enter the body from the environment. There are three types of response systems in the immune system: the anatomic response, the inflammatory response, and the immune response.

  • The anatomic response physically prevents threatening substances from entering your body. Examples of the anatomic system include the mucous membranes and the skin. If substances do get by, the inflammatory response goes on attack.
  • The inflammatory system works by excreting the invaders from your body. Sneezing, runny noses, and fever are examples of the inflammatory system at work. Sometimes, even though you don’t feel well while it’s happening, your body is fighting illness.
  • When the inflammatory response fails, the immune response goes to work. This is the central part of the immune system and is made up of white blood cells, which fight infection by gobbling up antigens. About a quarter of white blood cells, called the lymphocytes, migrate to the lymph nodes and produce antibodies, which fight disease.

Integumentary System

{The Itegumetary System icludes the skin, hair, nails, sweat and other exocrine glands}

The Integumentary system has a variety of functions.
  • It serves as a waterproof cushion that protects deeper tissues.
  • It excretes wastes (detoxes) and regulates body temperature
  • It is the attachment site for different types of sensory receptors to detect pain, sensation, pressure, and temperature.
  • It is also a source of vitamin D synthesis which is required for healthy human body.
  • It is the largest organ of the body and distinguishes, separates and protects the body from its surroundings

Lymphatic System

{Thymus, Spleen, Tonsils, and Appendix, along with some special tissue in the gut}

The lymphatic system is also a defense system for the body. It filters out organisms that cause disease, produces white blood cells, and generates disease-fighting antibodies. It also distributes fluids and nutrients in the body and drains excess fluids and protein so that tissues do not swell. The lymphatic system is made up of a network of vessels that help circulate body fluids. These vessels carry excess fluid away from the spaces between tissues and organs and return it to the bloodstream.

Muscular System

{The muscular system includes cardiac muscles, smooth muscles (found inside organs such as the stomach and intestines, as well as in blood vessels ) and skeletal muscles. A complete muscle — consisting of muscle fibers, connective tissue, nerve tissue and blood tissue — is considered one organ by itself}

The muscular system is made up of tissues that work with the skeletal system to control movement of the body. Some muscles—like the ones in your arms and legs—are voluntary, meaning that you decide when to move them. Other muscles, like the ones in your stomach, heart, intestines and other organs, are involuntary. This means that they are controlled automatically by the nervous system and hormones—you often don’t even realize they’re at work.

The body is made up of three types of muscle tissue: skeletal, smooth and cardiac. Each of these has the ability to contract and expand, which allows the body to move and function. .

  • Skeletal muscles help the body move.
  • Smooth muscles, which are involuntary, are located inside organs, such as the stomach and intestines.
  • Cardiac muscle is found only in the heart. Its motion is involuntary

Nervous System

{Brain, Spinal cord, Sensory organs, and all of the nerves that connect these organs with the rest of the body}

The nervous system is made up of the brain, the spinal cord, and nerves. One of the most important systems in your body, the nervous system is your body’s control system. It sends, receives, and processes nerve impulses throughout the body. These nerve impulses tell your muscles and organs what to do and how to respond to the environment. There are three parts of your nervous system that work together: the central nervous system, the peripheral nervous system, and the autonomic nervous system.

  • The central nervous system consists of the brain and spinal cord. It sends out nerve impulses and analyzes information from the sense organs, which tell your brain about things you see, hear, smell, taste and feel.
  • The peripheral nervous system includes the craniospinal nerves that branch off from the brain and the spinal cord. It carries the nerve impulses from the central nervous system to the muscles and glands.
  • The autonomic nervous system regulates involuntary action, such as heart beat and digestion.

Reproductive System

{Female: Ovaries, Oviducts, Uterus, Cervix, Vagina, Mammary Glands, Male: Testicles, Ductus or Vas Deferens, Prostate Gland, Penis, Common Urethra; Hormone Organs (Pituitary and Anterior Pituitary Gland)}

The reproductive system allows humans to produce children. Sperm from the male fertilizes the female’s egg, or ovum, in the fallopian tube. The fertilized egg travels from the fallopian tube to the uterus, where the fetus develops over a period of nine months.

Respiratory System

{Upper respiratory tract: Nasal cavity, Sinuses, Pharynx, Larynx.   Lower respiratory tract: Trachea: Lungs, Bronchi, Diaphragm}

The respiratory system brings air into the body and removes carbon dioxide. It includes the nose, trachea, and lungs. When you breathe in, air enters your nose or mouth and goes down a long tube called the trachea. The trachea branches into two bronchial tubes, or primary bronchi, which go to the lungs. The primary bronchi branch off into even smaller bronchial tubes, or bronchioles. The bronchioles end in the alveoli, or air sacs. Oxygen follows this path and passes through the walls of the air sacs and blood vessels and enters the blood stream. At the same time, carbon dioxide passes into the lungs and is exhaled.

Skeletal System

{Bones, Ligaments, Tendons, and Cartilage}

The skeletal system is made up of bones, ligaments and tendons. It shapes the body and protects organs. The skeletal system works with the muscular system to help the body move. Marrow, which is soft, fatty tissue that produces red blood cells, many white blood cells, and other immune system cells, is found inside bones.

Urinary System

{Kidneys, Ureters, Bladder, Sphincter Muscles, Nerves in Bladder, Urethra}

The urinary system eliminates waste from the body, in the form of urine. The kidneys remove waste from the blood. The waste combines with water to form urine. From the kidneys, urine travels down two thin tubes called ureters to the bladder. When the bladder is full, urine is discharged through the urethra.

Other important functions of the kidneys include blood pressure regulation and the production of erythropoietin, which controls red blood cell production in the bone marrow. Kidneys also regulate the acid-base balance and conserve fluids.
