These Two Body Organs Clean Themselves

Organs that clean themselves

April 2017

Generally our body is to be maintained, washed and kept clean, but do you know that there are certain body parts ( organs ) that don't require these everyday maintenance, they each have their own cleaning mechanism, which is more efficient and safe.

They include:

1. Eyes

Our eyes clean and lubricate themselves everytime we blink using the tears what we produce.

There are 3 types of tears. Basal tears contain water, mucin, lipids, lysozyme, lactoferrin, lipocalin, lacritin, immunoglobulins, glucose, urea, sodium, and potassium (proteins, salts and fats to help clean, lubricate and fight infection in the eye). These are the tears when you blink.

The second are reflex tears which happen when you get something in your eye. Sort of extra protection.

The third are psychic tears which happen during heightened emotion so happy, sad angry etc. These have a different chemical make up and contain hormoes and even some natural pain killers. Not really sure why.

2. Vagina

Glands in the vagina produce fluid that flows out daily to help get rid of dead cells and other potentially harmful materials (this is discharge).

The folds of the vagina also protect against infection by sticking together to keep as much bad stuff on the outside as possible. The skin of the vaginal folds also have glands that produce fluid, called sebum, for added protection against infection and even waterproofing.

Sebum can build up and that is perfectly healthy — not an indication of poor hygiene. Vaginas are self-sustaining and should not be washed with soap or douched because it can wash away these protective fluids.
