How does your body know how to fix itself so quickly and
easily? What controls your healing process?
Damaged cells release chemicals that attract various types of white blod
cells which in turn release histamine which causes inflammation and
swelling. The inflammation and swelling are the result of increased blood
flow into the damaged area which accelerates repair or replacement by
mitosis of the damaged cells. Do a seach on Google using terms like
inflammation, histamine, mast cells and damage repair.
