Infectious diseases, also known as communicable diseases, are caused by various pathogens, including viruses, bacteria, fungi, protozoa and multicellular parasites.
As there are as many microorganisms as there are hairs on your head and not all of them are harmful, it makes sense to concentrate on supporting the environment in the body rather than trying to target the specific organism.
Not everybody who comes into contact with a pathogen gets affected because a weakened immune system, rather than the germ itself, makes people more susceptible to infection.
Marvel Oils are the answer, not only because they stimulate the health of the immune system as a whole so that it can protect itself but also because they make the body inhospitable to harmful organisms.
Chicken pox is a highly contagious and common infectious disease that is usually mild and self-limiting.
Influenza, or the ‘flu,’ is a viral infection caused by any one of a number of viruses and is much more serious than a cold, affecting joints and the respiratory system. Not everyone who comes into contact with a flu virus will develop symptoms.
Leprosy is an ancient infectious disease caused by the bacterium Mycobacterium leprae and Mycobacterium lepromatosis. Symptoms can take 20 years to occur and if left untreated lead to disfiguring skin sores and nerve damage.
Poliomyelitis, or polio, is an acute, viral, infectious disease that does not produce symptoms in most people who contract it. In the small percentage of people whose central nervous system is invaded by the virus however, it causes muscle wasting and paralysis.
