The Human Immune System
Bruce back with a very interesting story today, a story about the immune system.
Yes I know every day with Covid you hear about the immune system this immune system that well what is the immune system I mean if I ask you what the digestive system is you probably say yes so the others the mouth and the esophagus and the stomach and the intestines you get all those pieces I say what is the immune system well generally it’s something that protects me from what from things that get inside your body and I said well why should things want to get inside my body in the first place let’s set up a scenario you’re out there in the world and I drop you off in the wilderness and I say okay survive and one of the things you have to do is start finding food and you’re going to spend all your time maybe find nothing and you’re going to be looking for food and here’s an alternative vision I drop you out and eat all you can buffet well you don’t have to worry about food it’s being served to you all the time what does this have to do with the immune system let go like this bacteria parasites that live out in the environment have to struggle for their survival to find food but underneath your skin the tissues inside your body are flush with fluid from the blood and in that fluid are all the nutrients and elements necessary for growth so if a bacteria could find itself inside to your body it would be sitting pretty all it had to just sit there and food would be constantly delivered from an individual circulatory system so the idea is well yeah then obviously this is a nice environment that uh invasive organisms would like to find themselves in because it’s like free food well you know no probs so okay so what does this mean it says well then we have to have a defense system because if invasive organisms get in there not only will they utilize the food we make but they could create a toxic waste environment that could actually undermine our health so we can’t afford to have invasive organisms come into us and take over and the immune system’s job is an internal protection system as opposed to for example the adrenal system fight or flight which protects you from threats on the outside immune system protects you from threats on the inside so I said well how does it work well the immune system is an intelligent system because what is the function of the immune system to go out into the world of their body and look for things that are new that came in and then not only recognize them but learn about them so that they could create antibodies for example to effectively knock them out so the immune system’s character is learning and memory I go wow what a coincidence this is the character of the nervous system point the immune system is an extension of the nervous system learning in memory about the environment in which you live so I said well how does it work well I say that there are organisms that prefer to find the interior of our body as a place to live because it’s so much easier for them just to sit there and live off of your energy and your nourishment so the old story is the immune system protects self my body against invading organisms as everything else is called not self well I go that’s a crude insight but it’s not anywhere near accurate for a simple reason the immune system identifies things that get into the body that cause disruption of the system and its job is to identify them, mark them, and eliminate them. You know there are many organisms that live with us that are part of us it’s called the microbiome thousands of species of organisms bacteria and parasites living with us I say the immune system doesn’t attack them the reason is this they support our viability they support who we are so self versus not self. That’s not the discriminating fact of the immune system factor the immune system is anything that’s disruptive to the system well guess what that not only includes organisms that came from the outside but even our own cells if they go rogue like go into a cancer state the immune system’s job is to eliminate them so basically the function of immune system is to keep harmony in the system any organism that comes in that disrupts harmony function immune system eliminate it there’s an intelligence state to it, and it’s not self versus not self, it’s versus anything that brings harmony versus anything that disturbs harmony in the system that’s the focus of the immune system the immune system represents a whole population a community of cells inside the body but here’s an interesting fact the most important component of the immune system isn’t even the immune system the body is protected by a layer of skin represents an organization of cells forming like a membrane a layer it’s called epithelium every opening of the body is lined by epithelium so I say yes the throat has an epithelium as you go in okay the nose has an epithelium the ears have an epithelium the respiratory the digestive system the excretory the reproductive system point is very simple every system that’s connected to the outside of the body has a protective layer of epithelium as a border to prevent infection into the system the skin for example is a barrier that prevents things from attacking you so here’s the important part the skin and now we know there’s another layer called the microbiome which consists of bacteria and elements like that are two layers microbiome on top of the epithelium and underneath is the inside of the body these two layers aren’t part by definition of the immune system but they represent the most important part of the immune system because with these two barriers they eliminate 99.99 percent of any infective agent doesn’t even get past those barriers the immune system that we talk about with the cellular involvement is if the invasive organism gets under the barrier now it’s inside environment and the function of the policing of that environment is due to the immune system so I said well how can I explain it to06:32you in a very simple way so I say here’s a picture let’s start off with this here’s an aquarium there’s fish in the aquarium there’s water in the aquarium and there’s a border all the way around the aquarium that contains the water and the fish well in addition to that if you have an aquarium guess what you have to filter the water so you put in a pump that takes water out filters it and then puts it back into the system so now we have a pump and now a very important aspect of that pump which represents07:02the circulatory system is that I could07:05add nutrients to that pump so as it’s07:09pumping the fluid through the body07:11it’s also pumping nutrients throughout07:13the body07:14so I say cool so here’s our picture of07:16the aquarium the pump is working07:18food elements are coming out with the07:21fluid07:22and this draws the fish to the07:25pump the vascular system the equivalent07:29i go so what is this relevant I said07:31well it’s a circulatory system07:33filtering the water adding the water07:35back in and then07:36uh taking the water out and filtering07:38again and then I say well there’s07:40one little component we have to add to07:42that and I say what is it and I say07:44when the fluid is removed from the blood07:48by pressure blood pressure what happens07:51is large blood vessels like an artery07:53shrink down to a small blood vessel like07:55a capillary07:56so you have a large amount of fluid07:58coming in and then a little tiny vessel08:00to carry all that fluid out08:02well that means there’s a pressure on08:04this side of the small vessel08:06blood pressure and I say what does that08:08mean well then as the fluid is being08:10pushed through the capillary08:12which is lined by epithelial cells08:15that the fluid pressure causes the08:19fluid in the blood which we call lymph08:21to leak out08:22between the cells lining a blood vessel08:24so in a state of nourishment08:27the blood that’s coming to the area of08:30the body08:32carrying red cells which have oxygen in08:34them08:35and fluid the serum in the blood which08:37has all the building blocks the08:39nutrients and08:40hormones and growth factors is carried08:43in the fluid08:44in a conventional situation blood08:47pressure causes that fluid to leak out08:49that fluid carrying nutrition nourishes08:52the cells08:53and at the other end of the capillary08:55where it joins the vein08:57a process called osmosis which09:00drives the fluid from the outside back09:02into the capillary09:04helps return the fluid that came out at09:06the front of the capillary to come back09:08in at the end09:09now there’s only one problem more fluid09:12is coming09:12out at the front of the capillary than09:14is going back in at the other end of the09:16capillary09:17the point is then the blood is09:19continually putting more fluid into the09:20body09:21than is being taken back into the blood09:23again so I said wow09:25well you can’t live very long like that09:27because eventually then all the blood09:29fluid would be leaked out09:30and you wouldn’t have any blood fluid in09:32your circulatory system09:34point is very simple at this point we09:37need to return the extra fluid09:39i say ah there’s the equivalent of a09:42floor drain09:42a drain in the tissue it doesn’t it all09:46it does09:46is collect the extra fluid out of the09:50tissue bring it through a pipe09:51and carry it back filter it and then09:54drop it back into the heart09:56so that we can replace the fluid that09:58was coming out10:00okay so this means capillaries are10:03nourishing they don’t let red cells out10:05they let the oxygen out they let10:08the nutrition dissolved in the fluid out10:10so the blood cells don’t come out they10:12just keep moving down the capillary but10:14pressure pushes the fluid out10:16nourishing the cells significance now is10:19this10:20is that this fluid that comes out10:23fills the spaces around the cells the10:25body isn’t solid cells the body10:28is like a spongy network inside with10:30matrix they call10:32it with just like a sponge with cavities10:34in it10:35and the fluid coming out of the blood10:36vessels goes through the sponge10:38and cells are embedded in the sponge so10:41as the fluid is going through the sponge10:43the cells can use the nutrients and10:45oxygen in that fluid10:47so this is how the cells get nourished10:50well10:50the problem for the immune system is10:53this10:53this is a very rich environment for10:55invasive organisms10:56if a bacteria could get into that spotty11:00it would be nourished by your effort to11:02eat and create11:04the building blocks of life so you would11:05be feeding11:07an invasive population so the job of the11:10immune system11:12is a whole series of cells11:15that travel through the body and what do11:17they look for11:18anything that’s creating a disturbance11:20from homeostasis11:22and the immune system’s job then is to11:24eliminate those things whether it’s11:26something foreign that came in11:27or even one of your own cells that has11:29gone rogue11:31okay so that’s a function of the immune11:32system and I said well how does it work11:34i say well look let’s go back to the11:37aquarium story right now11:39and the cells are represented by the11:40fish the matrix where the fluid is is11:43represented by the fluid in the aquarium11:45okay the pump that has been circulating11:48the fluid11:49is the equivalent of the circulatory11:51system heart and blood vessels11:53i say so what’s relevant I say now take11:56a perspective from an invasive organism11:59an evasive organism can end up in either12:02of three different places just as we’ve12:03illustrated12:04it could go into the fluid part in the12:06matrix and just sit there and take all12:08the nutrients out of the fluid12:10or an organism12:13like a bacterium can infect a cell and12:16live inside the cell12:17well guess what now it’s protected from12:20the immune system because it’s not out12:21in the matrix it can’t be seen by the12:23immune system12:24but it’s inside a cell taking over the12:26function of that cell and living off of12:28that cell12:29and a third place for an infection is12:32not only did it come into the fluid but12:34it got picked up by the vascular system12:36the circulatory system I say why is that12:37relevant well that’s the richest source12:39of nutrients of12:40all and it also goes for the entire body12:44so if an invasive organism is in the12:46blood12:48it can be distributed anywhere12:50throughout the body12:51and take over this process is called12:53sepsis12:54this is the most uh disturbing form of12:57inflammation because12:58you’re feeding everything with the13:00purest nutrients in the blood13:02and giving an opportunity to be13:04distributed throughout the entire body13:07so I say well then we have to deal with13:08these infections13:10and the two primary infection sites are13:12either in the matrix where the fluid is13:14or13:14inside the cells there are two main cell13:17types13:18in the immune system that deal with this13:20there’s a whole community but two main13:22characters that we talk about13:23the lymphocytes are the scuba divers13:26that come into this matrix13:28one set t cells examining the health of13:31the body cells as to whether they’re13:32healthy or infected13:34one of them is called a b cell which13:36means13:37bone marrow derived cell a cell that13:40evolved in the13:41in the bone marrow in the red bone13:43marrow which is generating blood cells13:45it generates these white cells called b13:49lymphocytes what’s their function the13:51function of a b13:52lymphocyte is to go through the matrix13:55and13:55identify anything that doesn’t belong13:57there by glomming onto it with receptors14:00and then this this invasive thing which14:03we collectively call an14:04antigen uh the b cell14:07has a surface receptor uh that could14:10plug into that antigen14:12like a lock and key and if it can do14:14that14:15then that b cell is stimulated to make14:17more14:18of these receptors but release them14:21free so they’re floating in solution so14:23wherever14:24that target was the free-floating14:27antibodies they’re called can attach to14:31the target14:32mark that target for destruction and14:33other cells like macrophages14:35will take the marked structures with14:37antibodies and14:38and devour them and break them down and14:40protect you14:42so yes antibodies are created by b14:45cells by recognizing a foreign antigen14:48modifying the receptor so that it14:50becomes a perfect fit14:52for that antigen and then reproducing14:56those receptors but releasing them out14:58into the fluid14:59in the blood serum and in the lymph15:02and these antibodies floating around if15:04they ever encounter15:06the antigen that precipitated them those15:09antibodies will bind to it15:10mark it for self-destruction and that’s15:13how we eliminate it15:15but now we’re left with the last part15:16and that is what if the infective15:18agent is inside the cell15:20antibodies can’t get inside the cell so15:23how15:23do I deal with an infection inside of a15:26cell except15:27a second group of immune cells are15:29called t15:30lymphocytes and that stands for15:34thymus derived lymphocytes I said what’s15:37their function15:39well these lymphocytes go around15:42and can read the health of any cell in15:45your system by looking at the surface of15:47that cell15:47is it a healthy cell or is it an15:49infected cell15:50well the t lymphocyte can distinguish15:52between them and when15:54it finds an infective cell the t15:56lymphocyte15:57cell itself kills the infected cell16:00which then wipes out the infection16:02so I have two main cells that part of16:05the immune system16:06b cells which release antibodies which16:08flow through the system16:09marking invasive organisms and marking16:12them to be eliminated16:14or t cells which are capable of16:17traveling among all the cells16:19and testing their surfaces to see are16:21these cells infected16:23and then the job is to eliminate an16:26infected cell16:27using the t cell to actually kill the16:29infected cell16:30so we have t and b cells running through16:32our body with an intelligence16:34they’re targets were identified and when16:37a target is identified for example by a16:39b16:39cell it causes the b cell to reproduce16:42and create lots of versions to do what16:44make lots of antibodies to go through16:46the system16:47and protect us and then there are memory16:50b cells and memory t16:51cells after the infection is gone these16:54memory cells16:55hold on to the history of what happened16:58and if that16:59invasive organism ever shows up again17:02instantly the cells will be prepared to17:04fight that and that’s called17:05immunological memory the immune system’s17:08job17:09is to move through the biology of the17:12body17:13through the matrix where the fluids are17:15or by identifying the individual cells17:17comprising the body17:19read for the expression of an infection17:22and then identify the antigen causing17:25infection17:27and then create a complement be an17:30antibody or a surface receptor on a t17:32cell that when recognizing the foreign17:35element17:36will mark it and then kill it and17:38protect us17:40and this is the function of the immune17:42system17:43and the primary part of the immune17:45system isn’t even the t17:46and the b cell the primary part is not17:49even part of the immune system17:50it’s the barrier that prevents 99.9917:54of infective agents from coming in so i17:57go okay17:58let’s take the story and put it in18:00today’s context of the covet18:02inflammation18:03i say so how does it work a Covid18:06is a virus what’s a virus a virus18:10is a device that carries memory that18:12plugs into a cell and transfers the18:14memory into the cell and the transferred18:16memory takes over the function of the18:17cell18:18so a virus redirects the function of18:21your cells to do what18:22make more viruses so a virus infects a18:26cell18:27and then the cell creates more viruses18:29and when the cell has so many viruses in18:31it the cell18:32breaks down dies releases the new18:34viruses18:35which then go on and infect new cells18:37and it’s a perpetuation machine18:40i say so let’s understand covet the18:42mechanism because it’s very important at18:44this time18:44number one the Covid virus is called a18:48cold virus I say18:49what does cold have to do with it the18:50answer is this when the virus18:53injects its information into the cell18:56that reproduction of the virus occurs at18:59a temperature19:00lower than body temperature 98.619:03fahrenheit for example19:04viruses in the cold version don’t19:07actually develop very quickly19:08at body temperature they develop at19:11colder than body temperature I say where19:13in the body is the temperature colder i19:16go19:17the respiratory system because the19:19respiratory system is taking cold air19:21from the outside bringing it into the19:23lungs19:24and having to warm it up to body19:25temperature so it doesn’t shock the19:27system19:28but that means the air that’s coming19:30into the respiratory system is colder19:33than 98.6 degrees relevance19:36if the virus coming in that air hits the19:40surface cells in the respiratory tract19:42they’ll infect them and they’ll be able19:44to grow and especially19:46in the winter time because the air is19:48even colder when it’s coming in19:50the cold air dropping body temperature19:52down to an adequate temperature19:54for reproducing the viruses so viruses19:58grow like this in the cold okay20:01well imagine you just breathe in a Covid20:03virus and I say where is it going to go20:05it’s going to go down the respiratory20:06tract and I say what’s its function20:08the virus like a memory stick plugs into20:11respiratory lining cells the epithelium20:14the barrier20:16that was protecting you of all the20:19barriers protecting the body from20:21outside influences the thinnest of20:24all barriers is the respiratory tract20:27and the reason why it’s so thin what’s20:29the function20:30it’s to allow oxygen to move from the20:33environment into the red20:35cells and allow carbon dioxide in the20:38red cells to be20:39released by going back into the air20:42again20:43so in the lung are these structures like20:46balloons called20:47alveoli and alveoli are like balloons20:50that blow up when you breathe and20:52contract when you exhale and so every20:55time you breathe20:56you can bring in bacteria and viruses20:58such as the covet20:59so you breathing the Covid virus comes21:01down the throat it’s a colder21:03temperature than the rest of the body21:05the Covid virus has a plug that matches21:07the21:08barrier of the alveolus and I say so21:11what does it do well it21:12invades the lining of the respiratory21:15tract21:16then what well it proliferates then what21:19it causes the lining cell to break down21:23well if the lining cell breaks down21:25there’s a secondary consequence21:27that is now the outside environment is21:29no longer being walled off by an21:31epithelium21:32the outside environment can now enter21:34into the body21:36and guess what is the closest thing21:38right there the blood vessels which were21:40bringing red cells near21:41the air so oxygen and co2 can exchange21:44with each other21:45and I say then what happens well the21:47viruses cause the destruction of the21:49lining21:50but the destruction of the lining opens21:52the system to further infection21:54so viruses that were reproduced in that21:56dying epithelial cell21:58some of them go in some of them go out22:01the ones that go out go out in your22:02respiration so when you breathe you22:04release viruses22:05but some of the viruses go in when the22:08lining got opened up22:10and then what well now that you opened22:12up the lining not only did viruses go in22:14but bacteria and other agents that are22:17in the air22:18can now also go into the body so now22:21there’s a second part of the problem the22:22first part was22:24i destroy the lining cells with the22:26virus covet virus22:28the second part of the problem now that22:30the lining cells are destroyed22:31i’ve opened the doorway for invasive22:35organisms to come in and take over the22:37system22:38and that’s where respiratory distress22:41comes from I go what’s respiratory22:44distress22:45breathing becomes difficult I go how22:47come breathing is difficult22:49go back to the original story the22:51alveoli the bubbles are like balloons22:53they22:54expand when you breathe in and they22:56contract when you breathe out22:58but I said but when the lining cells of23:01the alveolus come off23:03the fluid in the body remember the23:05aquarium23:06the fluid of the aquarium starts to come23:08out and what does it do23:10fills up the balloon with fluid I go why23:13is there a problem I say23:14air is supposed to be in the balloon so23:16that the air could transfer oxygen co223:19but when the alveoli become with fluid23:22air can’t get in there and I say what’s23:24the consequence23:25you can’t get fresh oxygen because23:28the air can’t go through all the water23:30to bring oxygen into the blood23:33and all of a sudden you have to breathe23:34harder distress respiration23:37and the more the infection takes place23:39the more the fluid comes into the23:41alveoli23:42the less you’re able to breathe and23:45there’s a point where if you can’t get23:47enough oxygen in the system23:48it leads to death that basically what23:51it’s doing23:52is it’s attacking the lining cells23:54allowing the reproduction of the viruses23:57but simultaneously causing the lining23:59cells to break down24:01opening the body to the outside24:04expression of organisms coming24:06in and a secondary consequence of covet24:08is now24:09the infection has taken place because24:11the barrier lining24:13has broken down so Covid didn’t kill24:16you24:16directly but corvid can lead to a worse24:20situation involving24:23failures of respiration and increased24:25infections24:27those are the elements that become24:29lethal24:30so then I say well what about the immune24:32system I go well the job of the immune24:34system24:35is to identify those cells that are24:38infected with viruses and kill them24:40before the viruses can reproduce24:42and if the immune system gets ahead of24:44the game it can keep killing any24:46infected cell24:47replacing it with a normal cell before24:49the viruses have a chance to replicate24:51so that’s when the immune system is24:52working24:53what if you compromise the immune system24:55i said what do you mean24:56what if you have something else going on24:58that is demanding out of the immune25:00system a lot of function and then you25:02get an infection I say well now the25:03immune system25:04can’t work up to its full capability25:06because you’re25:07subdividing its effort so when we have a25:10a chronic illness for example25:13a chronic illness is debilitating the25:16immune25:17system why it’s using it to fight cancer25:20diabetes Alzheimer’s whatever else is25:23going wrong in the system25:24now covet comes in I’m compromised i25:27don’t have a full active25:29immune system to fight the Covid25:32and as a result the covet can start to25:35reproduce faster25:36than my immune system can keep up with25:38it because of the compromised influence25:41and then all of a sudden well how is25:43this going to work out25:44well it’s a race it’s a race between the25:47virus replicating causing more damage25:50and a race between the immune system25:52capable of tooling up25:54to fight that infection to stop it25:57before it overtakes the system25:59why is the Covid such a big problem26:04well number one because we don’t have an26:06immunological memory26:08of an earlier infection by this26:11particular virus26:12that means we’re not prepared if this26:13virus shows up to deal with it we have26:15no previous experience26:17so everyone is essentially now a person26:20that can get26:21covet because we don’t have an26:22immunological memory so26:24this is the big problem but part two is26:27yes I can get the infection but now26:29the outcome is based on is my immune26:31system compromised26:33older people in nursing homes are26:35already compromised26:37people with chronic diseases in fact in26:40the united states26:4140 percent of the population has two26:44or more chronic diseases that interfere26:47with the function of the immune system26:49and compromise it the lethality in the26:51united states is different than other26:53places because26:54we are not in harmony to support our26:57immune system26:58so now what we’re facing is a virus that27:00hasn’t been around27:01everybody is susceptible to the virus27:04because it hasn’t been around so there’s27:05no previous immunological memory27:07when this first came the number of cases27:09that were affected27:11were so many that they put a stress on27:13the health care system27:14where the system couldn’t keep up with27:17the number of people27:18being affected by the covet virus then27:20there was an idea27:22what if we have a lockdown and take all27:25the people27:25and put them away and that way we would27:28slow down27:30the pace of the Covid infection giving27:32the health care system an opportunity to27:34catch up27:35but then there was about some idea that27:38now that that lockdown group has been27:39put27:40out of commission in a sense separate27:42from the covet virus infection27:45you think well does that protect them27:46because they’ve been in lockdown I go no27:48they just don’t get to see the virus and27:51i go what’s the consequence I said27:53the virus didn’t go away because people27:54went into lockdown27:56so what would you expect to happen when27:59you27:59open up the doors and let people come28:01back out28:02of course there would be another spike28:05why28:06the virus is still here and here’s a28:08whole fresh population that’s never even28:10been exposed to it28:11and we are now in that second spike does28:14it mean the virus is more fear than28:16i said you just kept the susceptible28:18people out of the picture28:19and then reintroduced them again and so28:22the second spike is not a surprise it is28:25an anticipation28:26what is the problem I said the race28:28between the virus replicating28:30and the immune system capable of28:32catching up is based on how can i28:35increase the effectiveness of the immune28:36system to get ahead of the virus and28:38shut it off28:39and the answer is well there are four28:41fundamental things to enhance your28:43immune28:44system and these four fundamental things28:46number one28:47include providing nutrition the immune28:49system uses so much energy28:51that out of your nutrition if you are28:54sick most of that energy is going into28:56the immune system function28:58so therefore it becomes incumbent upon28:59us to make sure we have proper nutrition29:01that feeds us29:02and that means eating really healthy29:04organic natural food29:06and not industrial farm food which29:08itself is toxic29:10number two today’s foods don’t provide29:12us with all the vitamins and supplements29:14necessary to maintain a healthy body29:16so in addition to eating well then29:18taking supplements such as vitamin c29:21enhances the effectiveness of the immune29:23system vitamin d enhances the29:26effectiveness29:27immune system interesting human29:29populations especially in the states are29:31very low29:32in those two vitamins without them we29:35are compromising immune system so taking29:37vitamins and supplements29:38adds to our health thirdly29:42exercise you go why because exercise is29:44moving the blood29:46oxygenating it moving things around29:48cleaning the lymph of the body filtering29:50out things29:52which is different than a sedentary29:53person the29:55movement of the body is facilitating the29:57movement29:58of the circulatory system and the30:00lymphatic system30:02and especially the immune system and30:04then30:05the most important thing we must30:07understand in enhancing the immune30:09system and that is30:11stress hormones shut down the immune30:14system30:15now that sounds like punishment like oh30:17no it’s actually an intelligent part of30:19the system30:20if you’re being chased by a saber-tooth30:22tiger and you have an infection remember30:24the amount of energy used by the immune30:26system is so great that when many people30:28get sick they don’t even have the energy30:30to get out of bed30:31so the relevance about all this is30:34we don’t want stress hormones in there30:37because the function of the stress30:38hormones is to conserve energy to run30:40away from a saber-tooth tiger30:42by shutting off functions not necessary30:45to escape30:46the tiger and that means shutting down30:49the immune system30:50stress hormones are so effective at30:52shutting down the immune system30:54that medical practitioners use stress30:56hormones30:57when they transplant a foreign organ30:59from a donor into recipient31:01they give the recipient stress hormones31:04why31:05to shut down the immune system31:08to protect the newly transplanted31:10foreign organ31:11so my goodness the effectiveness of31:13stress and shutting off the immune31:15system31:15it’s used therapeutically what’s the31:18point31:19watch the news go on the internet read31:23the stories31:24just start looking out your window and31:26see all the crazy stress-provoking31:28things going on I say31:30that itself is increasing31:33the virulence of the Covid because the31:36stress31:37is preventing the immune system from31:39fully functioning31:41and these are the four elements that31:43will help you31:44and I said well how effective is I say31:46up to 80 percent of the people are31:48infected31:49but don’t really show the symptoms uh a31:52mild fever31:53nothing serious only a smaller31:55percentage however seriously so what’s31:57the difference31:59group the large group their immune32:01systems are intact32:03eating well taking vitamins and32:05supplements exercising32:06and being free of stress means that they32:09can be infected by the Covid virus32:11and not have any real adverse effects32:13that would cause them to go see a doctor32:14or go to a hospital32:17the small percentage that is affected32:19the reason they’re affected32:21and having a negative consequence is32:23their immune system32:24is not working up to full capacity32:27they are compromised while 40 of the32:31american population have two chronic32:33illnesses that compromise the immune32:35system32:3660 of the American population have at32:38least one chronic illness so32:40up to 60 of Americans are already32:43compromised32:45in their ability to withstand this32:47infection32:48and when you are in a state of health32:51this infection is so minor that many32:52people didn’t even know32:54they were infected the high death rate32:57yes it is32:58but that’s not a reflection of the33:00virulence of the Covid33:02as much as it is a reflection of the33:05compromised health systems of those33:07infected33:08in conclusion the fear that has been33:10motivated by the media that this is so33:12deadly is not accurate33:14it’s really affecting those people who33:17are compromised33:18and if we make efforts on our part to33:21take care of our immune system33:24then we will not be subjected to the33:27virulent33:28activity that could lead to death in33:30those people that33:31are compromised.
We are capable of having the strength to resist the influence of the Covid virus.
