Homeostasis

Only the finest systems around

Why the body has homeostasis!

The reason that the body has homeostasis!

The understanding of homeostasis!

The reason we have homeostasis in our body system is so our body doesn't get overheated or tired so our body will work all the time. Homeostasis makes sure that you are not to hot or to cold so that you do not get sick or even die. Homeostasis also balances the pH in the body, Its the basic water inside the body.

but I know what you all are thinking " but we have and use the urinary system to get rid of water and waste" So without homeostasis we would not know when to get rid of water which can be really bad because for every time you need to use the bathroom you will hold it in forever which means your body will get to over flooded with and you will mostly die by the age of 3 months.

The food we eat

Each cell in your body is actively involved in metabolism, which basically is the process of using nutrients from food to provide fuel for cellular processes. Metabolism is like a wood-burning stove that heats a home (your body). Food is like the logs that are thrown on the fire.

When logs burn, ash is created. Ash is the waste created from the using of energy. If the ash is not removed from the fireplace, eventually the fire can no longer burn. When food is broken down, as much of the nutrients as possible are used to fuel the body. After as much energy as possible is extracted from food through digestion and metabolism, the remainder is excreted, or removed.

Suppose that it’s really cold outside — snowing even — and you run out to your mailbox in a short-sleeve shirt. While you’re out there, a neighbor stops by to chat. Your body wants to maintain its body temperature around 98.6°F. Your skin senses the cold conditions outside, and nerve impulses are sent from receptors in your skin to your brain that say, “Hey! It’s cold out here!!”

In an attempt to stay around 98.6°F, your body makes adjustments automatically. Goose pimples form, which actually are the hair follicles on your body tightening to make your body hair stand up higher to help insulate your body. If that doesn’t help to maintain the normal temperature, you start to shiver. Shivering is an attempt by your body to create heat through movement.
