The Human Virome: If You Think You Don’t Have Viruses, Think Again!
“The human body is very complex, this is why the natural way understands that any treatment must be holistic.”
Have you ever thought about what lives in and on our bodies? You might think that being in contact with bacteria and viruses is something rare when in fact the opposite is true. The human species is teaming with things you cannot even imagine so let’s take a look at the numbers first. Scientists have determined that there are approximately:
- 30 trillion cells in the average size human body
- 40 trillion bacteria on and in the human body
- 380 trillion viruses on and in the human body
Quite shocking, isn’t it? These organisms are significantly influenced by how we live, exercise, sleep, what we eat and drink. These lifestyle factors even effect how our genes are expressed and how we are influenced by them. We refer to these healthy organisms as symbiotic, because both benefit from each other. In fact, we could not survive without them. Our environments and lifestyles determine whether we assist our symbiotic organisms to give them the upper hand and help to provide us with resistance to disease, or we sabotage their efforts and promote the growth of destructive organisms and the demise of our health. A good example can be fungi that could be both friend and foe, especially because they live everywhere: in water, in the soil, in the air and also on and in our bodies. Scientists have begun to look into the importance of these organisms regarding our microbiome since they may play an important role in our immune system’s health.
SARS-CoV-2 Is Not Unique
Historically, we have met many infectious diseases that have a lot of common denominators leading to higher mortality levels. The most targeted and affected groups are always the same: the elderly, the obese or the undernourished, the sickly, people living in highly populated areas or those living in areas with poor sanitation and contaminated water supplies. Individually or collectively these result in changing the symbiotic relationship mentioned above and shifting from a healthy state towards a state of oxidative stress, inflammation and lowered immune resistance, thus providing a good host for viruses, e.g. the SARS-CoV-2 (the virus that causes COVID-19) to gain a foothold and replicate.
The Problem Might Be Bigger
Based on this information, what can we consider toxic? It definitely is the environment but maybe not always in a way we might think. Sometimes there are other (even more harmful) enemies as well that we need to think of. We have talked about stress and its negative effects many times. The problem with stress is that it not only has mental side effects but also influences our health—both could lead to long-lasting problems that generally seem to be taken less seriously than other aspects of a possible connection with viruses.
Natural and quality supplements could benefit your health. Life Choice® Next Generation Super Multivitamin Complex is a completely vegan, non-GMO, organic plant-based vitamin complex derived from spirulina, shiitake mushrooms, acerola berries, palm fruit, legumes, in a base of spinach, ginger, turmeric, blue berries. It has the purest natural form of Vitamin D3 derived from lichen, appealing to vegetarians and vegans. It also works as a B-complex and contains vitamin C and E that are all essential in fighting infections. It is a real organic food supplement; the plant based vitamins are in their active state for cellular absorption without the necessity of first converting within the body as synthetic B’s. The best combination to equate to a daily multivitamin/mineral would be to combine Next Generation Super Multivitamin Complex with Opti-Cal/Mag with K2. I would suggest two of each with breakfast and dinner.
Glandular therapy uses glandular and organ substances to bolster the function of our organs or glands. Life Choice® offers true full gland thymus concentrates (not extracts) which are taken from New Zealand-raised, grass-fed sheep without hormones or antibiotics. As we age, our bodies must fight harder and harder to maintain optimal performance. Products like Thymus Gland can ease the body’s immunological load and support the healthy aging process.
Growth hormone acts on many parts of the body, it helps to maintain normal body structure and metabolism, including helping keep blood glucose levels within set levels. With age, GH production slows, leading to the common signs of aging. This is where Homeopatic HGH+ could step in: it helps lessen the advancement of aging and reach endocrine balance in a safe way.
For adrenal support there is Life Choice Adrenal Gland which is a pure formulation supported with calcium ascorbate (a buffered mineral salt and water-soluble Vitamin C). Gotu kola is added because of its history in Ayurvedic and Chinese medicine proving its usefulness for reducing stress. The adrenal glands have the highest concentration of vitamin C in the body, utilized in the production of adrenal hormones, most notably cortisol. Under stressful situation vitamin C is rapidly depleted in the production of cortisol and related stress-response hormones. This increased anxiety, (high cortisol) wreaks havoc on your immunity, blood sugar, cholesterol, blood pressure and accumulation of belly fat.
For holistic thyroid treatment Life Choice offers Thyrodine® Thyroid Gland which contains zinc picolinate and iodine (potassium) to improve radiation protection of the thyroid gland. Thyrodine® helps balance the thyroid function without hormones by stimulating the body’s thyroid gland to release thyroxin—it is both safe and effective even with most prescription medications.
The human body is very complex, this is why the natural way understands that any treatment must be holistic; acknowledging that each ingredient must be in balance, originating from a clean reliable source.
