DEFEATING THE VIRUS BY UNDERSTANDING HOW IT WORKS
Viruses are infectious agents, there are many different kinds, not all are harmful. Viruses are not alive – they are simply a genetic code which carry their own DNA. Viruses are not predators but take advantage of opportunities to invade cells, they are dormant unless activated. Strengthening our immune system and maintaining a positive outlook is therefore our best defence.
The definition of a virus is ‘a microscopic particle that can infect the cells of a biological organism using energy for growth and development.’ Viruses cannot reproduce on their own, they require a host in order to multiply, replicating themselves in the living cells of birds, mammals, plants. They consist of genetic material contained within a protective protein coat and have a termed life span. CORONA VIRUSES are single-stranded RNA viruses, Corona is Latin for halo, the virus is named for the characteristic ‘fringe’ of rounded or petal shaped projections studding their envelope. This virus family can cause a variety of illnesses including respiratory infections which include SARS-gov-2 (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome ) and MERS-CoV (Middle East respiratory syndrome). Viruses are responsible for one third of common colds, seasonal flu is a result of several possible strains.
COVID-19 IS NOT FLU
Co (Corona) VID (viral disease) 19 is the year the virus was identified. It is one specific viral strain not yet identified, the reason we have no immunity. Highly infectious, it is much more severe than the flu virus.
- Morbidity factor for flu is 0.1%
- Morbidity factor for Covid -19 is now 18%
- The virus affects all age groups
VIRAL TRANSMISSION PROCESS
The virus hijacks the natural physiological cell process. Spikes on the external periphery of viruses are the means of contact with human cells. Covid -19 has multiple spikes and therefore an enhanced potential for cell invasion.
- The spike attaches to receptor cells on the cell surface.
- The spike vaccinates the cell transmitting the viral DNA.
- Viral DNA then merges with cell DNA.
- Viral DNA is then replicated using the normal biological cell process.
- Viral DNA copies overwhelm the cell DNA.
- Cell wall breaks down and the cell bursts.
- Viral DNA is then transmitted to other cells.
MAINTAIN SCRUPULOUS HYGIENE – DISTANCE – HAND WASHING
Highly contagious the Covid-19 virus is passed through direct or close contact e.g. by hands or via the breath by standing close to someone infected. It can also be found in faeces. Airborne transmission, passed through coughs and sneezes allowing the virus to linger in the air for an unknown period. Maintaining a distance of 6 feet from others is vital in limiting transmission. Droplets can linger on hard surfaces, stainless steel, plastic for 2 to 3 days and on cardboard for a longer period. As a safe guard, remove outer packaging and dispose before storing or using. Use bleach or disinfectant to cleanse surfaces. Lemon juice and lavender have natural antiseptic properties and are effective in cleansing surfaces.
THE BODY’S DEFENCE SYSTEM
Receptors on the cell surface act as messengers initiating a response by alerting the body to invading pathogens. LEUKOCYTES (white blood cells) then attach to the invading virus. Raised temperature is the symptom indicating the battle between invader viruses and leukocytes. Immunity develops when leukocytes overwhelm the viral DNA creating antibodies which are programmed to remember the viral signature, resisting any future attack by the same virus. A new virus is not initially recognised and can therefore overwhelm the immune system until sufficient protective antibodies exist. Unlike bacteria, viruses are not a living organism, therefore antibiotics are ineffective. Vaccines are used to stimulate the bodies defence mechanism, there is currently no vaccine, our best defence is to strengthen the body’s natural immunity process.
IF WEAKENED THE SPIKES OF THE VIRUS
CAN NOT PENETRATE THE CELL WALL.
Relaxation, Meditation and Energy Alignment calm the body and the mind and strengthen the immune system and therefore the walls of the cells. The Emerald Alignment is a simple, safe and effective method of releasing anxiety and helps to align the electromagnetic field which surrounds the physical body. A self help method, it has been taught to all age groups, used in schools, residential homes and integrated into existing healing programmes by therapists all over the world. The human body as the vehicle which allows us to operate in the physical world, carries the lower and slower vibrational frequency. While familiar with physical anatomy most people remain unaware of the structure of subtle energy anatomy which governs the body. An understanding of the multidimensional aspects of consciousness allows us to engage in positive affirmative action.
RESEARCH SHOWS ANTI VIRAL FOODS AND MEDICINES WEAKEN VIRAL SPIKES.
Humanity has survived for thousands of years using Herbal medicines and purified natural products which provide a rich resource to inhibit viral infection. Antiviral mechanisms interact with the viral life cycle, reducing or preventing entry, replication, assembly, and release.
OMEGA 3-FATTY ACIDS found in some types of fish — such as salmon, sardines, herring, and mackerel — help enhance the functioning of immune cells.
NATURAL YOGHURT improves immune function and protects the gastrointestinal tract by increasing the body’s production of antibodies which repel viruses
‘VITAMIN C is essential to boost the immune system, carrots, bell peppers, brussels sprouts and broccoli, are packed with vitamin C, fiber and antioxidants. Fruits include Lemons, oranges, raw apples, kiwi and papaya and strawberries.
ZINC strengthens the immune system, certain types of immune cells, including white blood cells, can’t function without zinc. Include nuts, whole grains and legumes (chickpeas, lentils, beans), red meats are particularly high in zinc, as are shellfish and eggs.
MAGNESIUM is comprised of numerous components which repel invaders, improving function of antibodies, lymphocytes, and macrophages to assist the removal of pathogens from the body. Pumpkin seeds, spinach, avocados and brown rice and dark chocolate are rich in magnesium.
SELENIUM strengthens the immune system, one Brazil nut provides more than 100 percent of your daily requirement. Nuts and seeds contain magnesium and vitamin E, an antioxidant which improves the body’s ability to fight off bacteria and viruses. Found in sunflower seeds, almonds, walnuts, and pecans
HYDRATION assists multiple bodily systems, improving immunity. Drinking cold water can loosen congestion.
GINGER stimulates defensive responses in the upper respiratory and digestive mucosa helping the body fend off infections.The antioxidant is full of iron, zinc, calcium and magnesium.
GARLIC has been prized for its medicinal properties for thousands of years. Garlic is anti-viral, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal and it is especially effective against viruses if chewed raw.
ELDERBERRY EXTRACT (nickname the ‘virus terminator’) binds and destroys the tiny spikes on the virus which are used to pierce and invade healthy cells making the virus ineffective. Research has shown that protective compounds in elderberries can wipe out viral spikes in a couple of days, preventing further spread.
GREEN TEA contains a group of flavonoids called catechins, which inhibit viral infections by blocking the enzymes that allow it to reproduce.
LIQORICE contains a substance called glycyrrhizin that reduces the replication of viruses and halts their ability to penetrate healthy cells. .
OLIVE LEAF contains a substance identified as a powerful inhibitor of a wide range of viruses by blocking the production of enzymes that allow viruses to replicate.
PAU D’ARCO also known as lapacho or ipe roxo, is an Amazon tree with healing inner bark. It contains quinoids that inhibit virus replication by damaging the DNA and RNA inside the viral protein.
MENTAL HEALTH is a key component in maintaining physical health. There are many effective herbal remedies to allay anxiety and depression. Lavender is one that has long been recognised as a self help remedy to aid sleep and promote mental calmness.
Seek advice from health care providers as to use and recommended dosage. For the most effective results, it is recommended that two or three of these remedies are used in conjunction.
