As each one of us may come to agree, our body is composed of highly complex mechanisms, which enable our bodily functions to continually adjust to the constantly changing internal and external environments. If our body cannot adapt to such changes, then we can just be easily worn out and even die with a blink of an eye. With this, it is quite interesting to know what keeps the human body going and how it works to cope with the bows and arrows of everyday living.
In this regard, this paper aims to explore and unravel the mysteries of the so-called physiologic adaptation. Discussion Adaptation is the ability of an organism or body part to adjust to the changes in its environment (Rothenberg and Chapman, 1989). Moreover, Freshwater and Maslin-Prothero (2005) augmented that adaptation is beneficial because it allows the body to jive with the stresses that it encounters. Indeed, it is the body’s innate response, or action, to protect and preserve itself.
