Hello people, yesterday I wrote about non-infectious diseases and sicknesses that are easily confused. Today ill continue with the infectious diseases and sicknesses.
Bacteria and other organisms that harm the body cause infectious diseases. They are spread in many ways.
Here are some of the most important kinds of organisms that cause infections and examples of sicknesses they cause.
Bacteria, like many of the organisms that cause infection are so small and cannot be seen without a microscope and the viruses are even way smaller than the bacteria.

Good question, people from different countries or backgrounds hence the different ways to explain what causes sickness.
A baby gets diarrhea. But why?
People in small villages may say it is because the parents did something wrong, or perhaps because they made a god or spirit angry.
A Doctor may say it is because the child has an infection.
A public health officer may say it is because the villagers do not have a good water system or use latrines.

This story started last year april when i was at the Obafemi Awolowo university Ile-ife for the Nigerian Medical council examination, i had just bought a chicken burger from Mr Biggs and headed back to my hotel room. It had been a long day and all i could think of was a warm bath and my chicken burger.

THE CARE OF A SICK PERSON
WHEN THERE'S NO DOCTOR.
The care of a sick person is one of the easiest thing that can be done by anyone when or if the need be.
This topic is one of my favorites from a book called “where there is no doctor”.
Sickness weakens the body. To gain strength and get well quickly, special care is needed. The care a sick person receives is frequently the most important part of his treatment.

Hello people, its been a long while, forgive my laziness.
I do have a couple of things to discuss in the next few days, weeks, months and even years so i suggest you strap up your seat belts because we are going on this ride together.
Hypertension is a sensitive topic as it is one of the major killers of our time. Most people cringe at the topic and most just take it likely. In my humble opinion however, i suggest we take hypertension (AKA High blood pressure) very serious.

Anxiety is a distressing, unpleasant emotional state of nervousness and uneasiness; its causes are less clear. Anxiety is less tied to the exact timing of a threat; it can be anticipatory before a threat, persist after a threat has passed, or occur without an identifiable threat.
Anxiety is often accompanied by physical changes and behaviors similar to those caused by fear.Some degree of anxiety is adaptive; it can help people prepare, practice, and rehearse so that their functioning is improved and can help them be appropriately cautious in potentially dangerous situations.
