“Prevention is Better than the Cure.”
The proverb has been traced back to ‘De Legibus’ (c. 1240) by English Jurist Henry De Bracton (d. 1268)
During these trying times, the key to overcome any obstacle is through prevention. Prevention is our instinctual nature to avoid, surpass, and overcome challenges and obstacles in our path. In doing so we must have a strong will with great determination as well as being cautious on an external level. As we embrace our inner strength and divine nature we are able to overcome these obstacles in whichever form they present themselves. I would like you to understand the mechanism of this current obstacle which is this afflicting virus so we can overcome its presence.
Utilizing my understanding of Viral pathogens and their debilitating effects, please allow me to present some insights into this arena. At the same time, I hope all of our patients, friends, families, and humanity feel safe and enjoy great health. So, join us in our recurring newsletter meant to educate and inform.
Best of Health,
Issue 1 – Basic Understanding of a Virus
What is a Virus?
A virus is a tiny parasite composed of RNA and DNA protein structures; these protein structures are the building blocks of every lifeform. Being parasitic in nature, they need to invade healthy cells so they can adapt, multiply and create more of themselves. This hijacking of healthy cells leads to cellular degeneration, now corrupt with the properties and propensities of the virus. As the cellular integrity deteriorates, it now affects the health of the individual until something is done. So the virus adopts a three-prong approach:
- Invasion (hijacking of a healthy cell(s)).
- Accumulation (spreading of virus cells within the hijacked body)
- Deterioration (debilitation of the cellular structure(s) within that body)
Methods of Invasion
How does a Virus spread?
Once a person or host is affected, they now become a reservoir of hijacked cells at the command of the viral influence. These viral particles from the host are released in the environment through the expulsion of body fluids, through coughing or sneezing. It is also released through the skin from surface to surface by touching. This creates a contaminated environment which is now ripe for further infections.
Let us now discuss the infectious patterns of this notorious virus plaguing us today: COVID-19, or coronavirus.
According to the CDC, COVID-19 is a new disease and we are still learning how it spreads, the severity of illness it causes, and to what extent it may spread within the United States.
According to the CDC, these are the methods of transmission:
The virus is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person.
- Between people who are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet).
- Through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes.
These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs. They also fall onto surfaces, bringing immediate contamination.
Social Distancing – According to the CDC, this is the most effective way of controlling the spread of the virus. It allows us to reduce and eliminate person-to-person infections and thus allows for a speedier recovery for the infected patient as well as the elimination of the virus.
Wearing of Masks – This is another means of person-to-person(s) prevention of any viral spread. It is not as effective as social distancing but has its merits in reducing droplet contamination. A combination of social distancing and mask-wearing helps reduce contamination to a minimal level.
Can someone spread the virus without being sick?
People are thought to be most contagious when they are most symptomatic (the sickest).
Some spread might be possible before people show symptoms; there have been reports of this occurring with this new coronavirus, but this is not thought to be the main way the virus spreads.
Healthy Immunity – This is key to fighting off any viral attacks because the body’s immunity is at peak and provides the defense needed for warding off any unwanted substances. When the virus is being spread by an asymptomatic person (not showing any symptoms), it is because the infected has a strong immune system that is not at peak level. This leads to the person being a carrier, and if their immune system breaks down further then they become infected and get sick.
Best Remedy for Immunity:
- Vitamin C 2,000 mg – Take 2 capsules daily
- Indian Gooseberry (Amalaki – 20x More Vit. C than oranges) – Take 2 capsules 2x day)
- Berries – Rich in vitamins and antioxidants
Spread from contact with contaminated surfaces or objects
It may be possible that a person can get COVID-19 by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it and then touching their own mouth, nose, or possibly their eyes; however, this is not thought to be the main way the virus spreads.
This is the reason for a shortage in the supply of hand sanitizers and alcohol.
The CDC recommends the use of alcohol-based hand sanitizers with greater than 60% ethanol or 70% isopropanol as the preferred form of hand hygiene in healthcare settings, based upon greater access to hand sanitizer. Healthcare providers who use alcohol-based hand sanitizers as part of their hand hygiene routine can inform patients that they are following CDC guidelines.
The effectiveness of any hand sanitizer must fall within the requirements as stipulated by the CDC in order to achieve optimal results. Using this type of hand sanitizer on hands or any surface helps reduce and eliminate contamination, ultimately killing the virus.
Best Remedy for Immunity:
- Hand Sanitizer with 70% Isopropyl / 70% Ethyl Alcohol (Aloe Vera in combination will prevent drying of the hands which can lead to peeling or cracking of the skin with constant use).
We will be offering upon every visit or purchase:
(1) Free bottle of 2 oz Hand Sanitizer (70% Ethyl Alcohol / Aloe Vera)
Any additional bottle will be available for $3.49
