Celiac disease is a disease that affects at least 3 million Americans including myself. A gluten free diet is often written off as a fad diet but for those living with Celiac, it is anything but.

Imagine you are nine years old and helping unpack groceries with your mother. In an instant everything changes. Your mom drops what she is holding and is now frozen on the ground. Her left side is paralyzed and there is nothing you can do except sit with her and wait for it to be over. You tell yourself it will be over soon, that the doctors will find a cure soon. This wasn’t the first attack and it wouldn’t be the last. She has Multiple Sclerosis, but nobody would know that until months later. At that moment the attacks were random and confused doctors. Even after she was diagnosed, doctors had no cure, only treatments that we prayed would help. That was my mother and my family. The summer of 2012 was scary and there was no cure to help her.
The skin is an organ and the largest in the body. Not only does your skin protect you from harmful contaminants, such as bacteria and viruses, but it protects your skin from environmental toxins. However, the one thing that harms the skin the most is the sun.

Stubbs, DO, ENT of the Southern Indiana Sinus Center is an expert in skin cancer and its treatment.

“Lymphoid tissue, cells and organs that make up the lymphatic system, such as white blood cells, bone marrow, and the thymus spleen, and lymph nodes” (The Editors of Encyclopedia Britannica). Lymphoid tissue is a big part of Hodgkin disease, so to fully understand the disease an individual must learn that the lymphoid tissue is very important for the human body. Lymphoid tissue is extremely important as an immune response and it also helps protect the body from infection and invaders. Simply, Hodgkin disease is the expansion of lymphoid tissue and the existence of Reed-Sternberg cells that are found in the lymph nodes. Reed-Sternberg cells “are large, often multinucleated with a peculiar morphology and an unusual immunophenotype, that does

Lupus is a chronic, autoimmune disease that can damage any part of the body (skin, joints, and/or organs inside the body). When you have lupus, the body attacks the healthy tissues that’s supposed to fights off viruses, bacteria, and germs. Normally our immune system produces proteins called antibodies that protects the body from these invaders. Autoimmune means your immune system cannot tell the difference between these foreign invaders and your body’s healthy tissues and creates autoantibodies that attack and destroy healthy tissue. These autoantibodies cause inflammation, pain, and damage in various parts of the body. Lupus is also a disease of flares, the symptoms worsen and you feel ill, and remissions (the symptoms improve and you feel better). (Wallace)

There are numerous amounts of diseases all over the world. In the present time, these diseases are cured or contained by vaccines. A couple centuries ago, doctor Edward Jenner developed the first vaccine in 1796. He discovered this vaccine by observing his ambiance. Jenner realized that milkmaids (tend to cattle) frequently contracted cowpox, but after they convalesced they were immune to the deadlier disease smallpox. So Jenner said, “Why not infect people with cowpox to confer immunity to the more dangerous disease.” With his research, he got the pus from a milkmaid who had cowpox and put it on a small healthy eight-year-old boys cut. Eventually, the boy was infected with cowpox, how Jenner predicted. When he was done recovering, Jenner
