Hematology is the field of Medicine that is concerned with conditions of the BLOOD and/or BONE MARROW. The functions of our blood include:
Supply of oxygen & nutritients to the whole body
Regulation of blood clotting & bleeding
Immunity & healing
Immunohematology is a specialized field of Hematology that focuses on the Immune System. The Immune System is the body’s mechanism for defense & healing. The study of Immunohematology includes the study of Antibodies, Allergies and Autoimmunity; and also Immune System cancers, e.g. Multiple Myeloma.
Every single organ in the body depends on blood. Blood is essential for life. Hence, Hematological disorders can affect virtually every organ in the body. And vice versa, virtually every medical condition can have direct or indirect effects on the blood and/or bone marrow.
We look healthy and good because our Blood and Immune System constantly nourish, protect, heal and repair our bodies. Take care of your Blood and Immune System, and your Blood and Immune System will take care of you.
