Viruses

What is a virus?  Virus is the Latin word for poison.  Since the beginning of time, people have been plagued with viruses.   They seem to come and go causing epidemics and outbreaks that make many people sick and in some instances cause death.  A virus is simply a clump of DNA material contained within a protein coating.   And, unlike bacteria, they can only become active inside a live host.

Viruses are smaller than bacteria and have the bad habit of going dormant, to reappear later causing worse symptoms with each outbreak.  Some examples of viruses are rhinovirus (common cold), hepatitis, Epstein-bar, ebola, HIV, influenza(flu). 

Timing seems to be very important in treating viruses.  They go through several stages, including the dormant stage, and can morph into stronger strains with each generation.  They are difficult to diagnose and are a challenge to fight.

They all attack the immune system.  So, to naturally fight these viruses, prevention is the best course.  If your immune system is strong, there is a very good chance that you will kill the virus in your system before it causes any symptoms or at the very least, the symptoms will be mild.  A doctor on the Discovery channel was lecturing on this very topic one day and said that the human immune system has all of the DNA codes to all of the viruses.  If every individual would strengthen their immune system, that would be the best way to prevent sicknesses caused by viruses.

Your first line of defense includes skin and mucus membranes, sweat glands, hyaloronic acid, saliva and mucus, stomach acid, gut flora (pro-biotics such as acidophilus), and your bio-electric field.

Our space is limited, but don’t put your fingers in your eyes, nose or ears, wash your hands often, use a dry sauna or do aerobic exercise to sweat, take enzymes (they can break down that protein coating), take a quality pro-biotics with several of the good bacteria and get plenty of rest.  Also, keep in mind there are many wonderful herbs and supplements that build the immune system. All of these things work together to give you Better Health, Naturally.

    necessary to talk with own body a little more.

    I think that halting with courage is important.
