HOW THE BODY HEALS ITSELF - THE IMMUNE SYSTEM
Cellular damage occurs repeatedly every day
How does the body recognize damage?
How does the body repair damage?
How does the body regenerate tissues?
How does the body maintain a healthy chemical balance?
How are reductants and oxidants made?
Why is a healthy chemical balance of “reactive molecules” important?
How can I help maintain a healthy chemical balance?
