Understanding The Non-Specific Immune Response
The Non-Specific Immune Response by Jane Thurnell-Read
It is very easy to believe that antibodies do all the work fighting invaders, but there is a more general non-specific defence system too. One part of this is based on the complement system. These are chemicals that are normally present in the blood stream but in an inactive form. They become activated when they come into contact with a foreign substance. There are eleven complement chemicals, which create a chain reaction that works to destroy the foreign substance.
Some complement factors dilate blood vessels; others can form large holes in the membranes of bacterial cells allowing fluid to flow into the microbe, so that it swells and bursts; others bind to the surface of the microbe and attract phagocytes to attack.
I have not been able to obtain good samples of all the complement chemicals, but I do have 6, which are all in the Body Biochemicals 3 test kit. Click here for information on the contents of this kit and to buy it. If you wouldnt know what to do with the kit once you had bought it, but know some muscle testing, or use an EAVmachine, I suggest you buy my Energy Mismatch book.
