Not All Microorganisms are Bad for the Human Body

Not All Microorganisms are Bad for the Human Body

Not All Microorganisms are Bad for the Human BodyOur bodies are a host to numerous microorganisms, which are helpful, and occasionally required for individual well-being, known as commensal microorganisms. These types of beneficial bacteria tend to be disregarded because of the unwanted effects related to various other microbial varieties, along with the issues related to their overgrowth.

An ordinary healthy individual has microorganisms residing in their intestinal tract, on the pores and skin, as well as in their food, which they consume.

A variety of microbial varieties reside on or within human beings, participating in functions that are beneficial to the performance of the body’s systems. On the other hand, these kinds of microorganisms need to be maintained in order to stay away from contamination. However, they also have to be maintained in order to avoid non-beneficial microorganisms from seizing residence.

Intestinal Tract Bacteria: One of the most popular microorganisms in the intestinal tract is Lactobacillus acidophilus, which helps with the digestion of lactose, the break down of vitamins, conversion process of soluble fiber, reusing of proteins, and release of harmful toxins. The byproducts of acidophilus digestive functions produce an acidic atmosphere, which often keeps out far more harmful microorganisms like fungus and harmful bacteria.

An additional comparable microorganism is Streptococcus mutants. This particular bacterium exists within the mouth and transforms the sugar sucrose into lactic. Though this type of microorganism is regarded as useful, it may trigger teeth plaque and teeth corrosion if your dental cleanliness is not so good. Much like acidophilus, this microorganism keeps out yeast infections and damaging Streptococcus and Staphylococcus traces.

The bacteria within the intestinal tract additionally assist in creating a strong immune system; over fifty percent of the human body’s immune system tissue is found in the lining of the small intestinal tract. The microorganisms are released from your body on a daily basis and restored without leading to illness.

Epidermis Microbes: Propionibacterium acne and Staphylococcus epidermis are a couple of microbial species that are usually found on the pores and skin. Propionibacterium acne reside off essential fatty acids as well as the natural oils released from the follicles of the skin. Staphylococcus epidermis is usually not harmful, with the exception of the situation where individuals have a diminished defense system or permanent catheters.

Both of these microorganism types may cause contamination, acne breakouts, or oral plaques if they are not kept under control; however they also keep out more harmful form of microorganisms. Getting rid of these types of colonizing varieties completely would leave an individual susceptible to more serious bacterial infections.

Staphylococcus aureus can also be located on the pores and skin of some individuals, though more frequently within the nasal area, yet will not result in illness except when there exists a crack in the skin that it could enter in.

Probiotics: Men and women take in air and consume harmful microorganisms each and every day. Without the presence of regular oral and intestinal tract bacteria, illness would be a great deal more frequent and extreme. Medication essentially results in the depletion of the intestinal tract bacteria, which can leave an individual vulnerable to additional bacterial infections. This also happens when conventional medical creams or ointments are utilized excessively on your skin.

However the total consequences are still not yet recognized. To reverse the consequences of antibiotics and contamination within the bacteria of your body, probiotics came into use in the 1990s. Microorganisms are being put into food items such as natural yogurt, which is on its own a live microorganism environment. These bacterial cultures in yogurt are anticipated to assist in immune system reactions and digestive function.

Gardens, Soil and Beneficial Microorganisms

Gardens, Soil and Beneficial Microorganisms

By Clifford Woods

Microorganisms, microbes or bacteria make nutrients available in the soil for plants in a form that the plants then can use. Microbes create some of those nutrients, Mother Nature creates hers and we add the rest.

Some microbes consume nutrients and some microbes eat the microbes that have consumed the nutrients. This in turn breaks the nutrients down into a smaller form so they can be absorbed much more efficiently by the plant.

Gardens, Soil and Beneficial MicroorganismsMicrobes perform different jobs. Some defend against non-beneficial microbes and this helps keep the plant’s natural defence system at it’s best. Some microbes can also convert nitrogen gas in the air into a form that the plants can use.

Microorganisms release different types of proteins, acids, enzymes and other essential elements. These elements help to break down trace minerals, micro and macro-nutrients and make it available as food for the plant. What happens is an extreme increase in root mass, which in turn increases the nutrient intake that creates bigger yields. Enzymes and anti-microbial substances are particularly crucial in plants.

Beneficial microorganisms can also help condition and aerate soil, and create a better drainage system. Some beneficial microorganisms also have the ability to break down toxins in the soil or soil-less mix and turn it into plant food, air and water. They also covert calcium and phosphate into something that plants can actually use.

A good rule of thumb as to which microorganism is beneficial and which is not is the harmful or pathogenic microorganisms cause putrefaction and beneficial microorganisms cause fermentation.

Types of Beneficial Microorganisms:

  • Lactic acid: make lactic acid from sugars or other carbohydrates. This is an important by-product because it can act as a strong fertilizer. It will control or push down non-beneficial or harmful microbes as well as cause rapid decomposition of organic matter and ferments organic matter without the smell and other harmful outcomes.
  • Photosynthetic: these take harmful products like hydrogen sulfide and make them into useful substances. With the help of sunlight, secretions from organic matter can also be made into amino acids, nucleic acids, and bioactive substances. These aid tremendously in the growth of a plant and it’s development. Amino acids are the basic building blocks of proteins. Synthesis of new protein is what Nucleic acids are responsible for and this allows the characteristics of an organism to transfer from one generation to another. Bioactive substances are important in the regulation of the function of both plants and animals, which include hormones, enzymes, and neurotransmitters, among others.
  • Fermenting fungi: these groups of microorganisms suppress bad odors and prevent plant infestation by harmful insects and maggots. They also decompose organic matter rapidly to produce alcohol, esters and anti-microbial substances.
  • Yeasts: these create a better root system and helps with the absorption of more water and nutrients from the soil. This will in turn speed up plant growth, producing more and wider leaves so the plant will produce starch. Plants use glucose as energy; but starch can be stored more efficiently and for longer periods of time.Plants use the sun for energy so at night the plants convert the stored starch back to glucose to provide the basic energy needed to maintain basic cellular functions.

If you want to keep the populations of beneficial microorganisms healthy here is what you don’t do.

  1. Do not use chemical fertilizers: fertilizers are made up of salts, and salts suck the water out of the microbes, which will either kill them or cause them to go into a dormant state.
  2. Do not use hydrogen peroxide (H2O2): H2O2 adds oxygen to water, lowers algae levels and can help suppress diseases within plants. It helps sterilize water and the growing medium to kill harmful microorganisms, but it will also kill the beneficial microorganisms. Not good.
  3. Do not use chemical pesticides: these get sprayed onto leaves to kill harmful insects, but they also kill the beneficial microbes that are present on the leaves. The pesticides then drip off the leaves and into the soil and again, kill any beneficial microbes present in that soil or soil-less mix.
  4. Don’t walk on the soil or compact it: over-tilling and compaction can kill some beneficial microbe populations since some microbes need air to survive. Worms can do the work of turning it in for you.

Do add at least an inch of organic compost a year:  this will replenish the nutrients that the plants have used that season and handle pests with natural and organic remedies.

Beneficial microorganisms bring back the lost properties of the soil and are commonly used in natural farming and organic gardens.

Tips for a Natural and Organic House

Tips for a Natural and Organic House

By Clifford Woods

The world is discovering the need for cleaning products which are easy to use and safe for the environment. These natural products can be home-made and even when bought; they are not as expensive as one may have been lead to believe. Use of natural products enables us to protect the surroundings and out families and friends.

The Natural and Organic HouseVarious organizations have realized and are emphasizing the natural and organic house.  The various advantages which are gained, like keeping the water sources free from pollution, is of immense current and future value.

Water is one of the natural elements that we have in abundance around us. It can be used along with vinegar to clean the pipes which drain water away from various parts of a house like the kitchen sink and bathroom. Because of the acidic condition of a mixture like this, one can be assured that harmful microorganisms like mold and even bacteria that sometimes grow in these pipes, are neutralized.

When one is in need of preventing bad odor in the house or kitchen, this vinegar mixture is also an option. This is quite important as it does not pose any sort of health risk to the user and also achieve excellent results when used. Vinegar can be effectively mixed with water and used as a cleaner in the kitchen and bathrooms in the home. This is very much safer than the use of air fresheners which can trigger allergic reactions in people with respiratory type problems. Vinegar also kills harmful microorganisms due to its acidic nature.

Surfaces in the house like sinks or wooden counters can be stained when they come in contact with certain chemicals. One solution to this has been found in the use of lemon water. When used to scrub off stains, it can be quite effective. Additionally, lemon water combined with baking soda has been shown to be very potent in getting results when used to clean off most any kind of stains.

Controlling pests should be done in such as way as to not only eliminate the pests but should not leave behind sort of residue that could adversely effect the respiratory system of a person. Locating all the hiding places of spiders and there webs and getting rid of them and keeping surfaces clean, is a safe way of doing this. Finding their breeding sites is also quite helpful as this removes a whole generation of pest and helps keep a home clean and allergy free.

Cleanliness is also achieved by keeping your household items well organized; pests love a disorganized area – all those lovely, dark places to hide! Old or very rarely used items should be neatly stored or disposed safely, like in a dust bin. Old newspapers and books can be safely kept in boxes for future use. If no longer of value, these should be recycled.

In keeping a natural and organic house, it is a requirement to ensure that the air you breathe in is free from harmful particles. Good ventilations and a routine cleaning schedule with the use of natural products and beneficial microorganisms’ helps quite a bit in maintaining a healthy environment. Believe it or not, regular washing and drying of clothes helps keep them fresh and reduce odor in the household.

Cleaning a house can quite a task if things are left to accumulate too much. The kitchen should be cleaned after each meal. It is a lot easier to clean a pot used to cook rise when the rice is soft than when it has been left to harden. Therefore, embrace the need to keep the house and kitchen clean regularly and pay particular attention to the cleanliness of the kitchen and bathrooms all the time, so as to reduce the risk of stubborn stains or bad odor and or health damaging conditions.

When the kitchen is cleaned daily with organic cleaners
the risk to you and your family are greatly reduced!
