Understanding The Coronavirus

Coronavirus Is An Antigen

Coronavirus, like anything that causes an immune response is an antigen. Antigens may be harmless like grass or pollen or harmful such as the Flu Virus. Disease causing antigens are called Pathogens. The immune system is designed to protect the body from pathogens.

The Immune System

In humans, the immune system begins to develop in the embryo. The immune system starts with hematopoietic (from Greek, “blood making”) stem cells. These stem cells differentiate into the major players in the immune system (granulocytes, monocytes, and lymphocytes). These stems cells also differentiate into cells in the blood that are not involved in immune function, such as erythrocytes (red blood cells) and megakaryocytes (for blood clotting). Stem cells continue to be produced and differentiate throughout your lifetime.

The main parts of the immune system are: white blood cells, antibodies, the complement system, the lymphatic system, the spleen, the thymus, and the bone marrow. When the body senses foreign substances (called antigens), the immune system works to recognize the antigens and get rid of them. B lymphocytes are triggered to make antibodies. These specialized proteins lock onto specific antigens. The antibodies stay in a person’s body.

The immune system can be viewed as a system controlled by negative feedback. The central component of the system is the lymphatic tissues, which include mature thymic lymphocytes ( T cells ) that have matured through development in the thymus and mature B lymphocytes that have matured in the bone marrow.

How To Strengthen Your Immune System

The Coronavirus and other pathogens are quickly evolving and can cause serious health issues especially for people with weak Immune Systems.

Healthy ways to strengthen your immune system
1. Don’t smoke.
2. Eat a diet high in natural fruits and vegetables.
3. Exercise regularly.
4. Maintain a healthy weight.
5. Don’t drink alcohol, if you must, drink only in moderation.
6. Get adequate sleep.
7. Reduce your exposure to EMF stress and 5G connected devices.
8. Take steps to avoid infection, such as washing your hands frequently and cooking meats thoroughly.

How Your Body Fights The Coronavirus

The way your body fights the coronavirus is it makes proteins called antibodies that destroy abnormal or foreign cells. They help fend off common ailments like the flu or a cold and protect you against major illnesses like coronavirus, cancer or heart disease. You also have a backup response known as the “cell-mediated immune system”.

ORGANS

The key primary lymphoid organs of the immune system are the thymus and bone marrow, and secondary lymphatic tissues such as spleen, tonsils, lymph vessels, lymph nodes, adenoids, and skin and liver. If you think citrus fruits have the most vitamin C of any fruit or vegetable, think again. Ounce for ounce, red bell peppers contain twice as much vitamin C as citrus. They’re also a rich source of beta carotene which is a known antioxidant. Besides boosting your immune system, vitamin C helps maintain healthy skin.

STRESS

Stress is anything that causes an emotional response that impedes the immune system. Stress has been proven to negatively affect the immune system and suppresses the Thymus gland. This response can have a long-lasting effect to the human protoplasm, so it is wise to manage stress daily. Meditation has shown to reduce the negative effects of stress on the body and mind by raising the levels of hormones and endorphins that stimulate the immune system.
