    Why Has Everyone Seemingly Forgotten How the Immune System Works?

    Why Has Everyone Seemingly Forgotten

    How the Immune System Works?

    By Dr. Alan Palmer

    The media blitz surrounding the COVID-19 crisis strangely omits any mention of the power of the human immune system. It is critical for thinking people to look beyond the noise and learn why a healthy lifestyle and a targeted nutritional approach, which I’ve been passionately advocating for over 30 years in my practice, is such an effective strategy in response to COVID-19.

    Is it the Germ, or is it the Terrain?

    This issue comes back to the great debate between two famous men of science, Louis Pasteur and Antoine Bechamp. The essential debate can be boiled down to this: Is it germs (Pasteur), that cause disease? Or, is it poor terrain (Bechamp), that allows the germ to gain a foothold and spread unabated? In other words, does exposure to a germ mean you’re destined to “catch” the disease or become “infected”? Does the germ have all the power to control your fate? Or, is the person who is exposed a receptive host? Is their immune system a fine-tuned machine, or weak and insufficient? In other words, is their level of resistance to the exposure high or low? See my recent Facebook post for a more detailed explanation of this “Great Debate”.

    Bathing in a Sea of Microorganisms

    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

    So, from sheer numbers it would appear that viruses are by far the greatest number of organisms on and in our bodies, no matter what we do to avoid or eliminate them. They are a part of our constitution.

    The Human Microbiome Project initiated in 2007 by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), has been working to map out, classify and understand the roles of the residents of the universe within us. It has given us a much better appreciation for the incredibly complex associations and relationships they play in health and disease.

    There are thousands of species of bacteria and viruses that compete for space and control of our tissues, made up of beneficial players, opportunists and harmful actors. These organisms are significantly influenced by how we live, exercise, sleep, what we eat and drink and these lifestyle factors even effect how our genes are expressed. We call all these healthy organisms symbiotic, because we 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.

    Essential Workers

    Beneficial bacteria are the housekeepers and defenders of our gastrointestinal (G.I.) tract. They produce B-vitamins, brain signaling molecules like serotonin (the antidepressant “brain” hormone—about 80% of it is made in the gut), short chain fatty acids that feed and maintain the cells lining our G.I. tract, regulate pro-inflammatory and anti-inflammatory cytokines (cell signaling protein molecules) to prevent autoimmune and inflammatory diseases and numerous other beneficial activities. Healthy bacteria also live in our mouths, on our skin, and in all the nooks and crannies of our body. They all have vital housekeeping chores in those places. The strength of the health and population numbers of our beneficial bacteria are the first line of defense of our entire immune system. It is estimated that 70% of our immune system resides in the Gut Associated Lymphoid Tissue (GALT).

    Then, there are the harmful bacteria that compete for the real estate in our G.I. tract and all throughout the body. If environmental factors throw the balance of power in their direction that’s when bad things happen. Our diet, lifestyles, medication, chemical use and emotional health all influence the balance of the healthy versus the unhealthy organisms.

    There are beneficial viruses also, on and in all parts of our body. Bacteriophages, sometimes called phages for short, are viruses that infect bacteria and eventually destroy them. They can help control rogue and harmful bacterial populations. Scientists and physicians world-wide have used various species of phages that attack pathogenic bacteria for decades to treat serious and even life-threatening bacterial infections, including those caused by drug-resistant species.

    Why has COVID-19 hit certain people harder? The Terrain!

    The terrain refers to the body and immune system, representing our resistance to disease. We are exposed to millions of microorganisms every day and will be for the rest of our lives. It is estimated that there are approximately 200 species of respiratory viruses; influenza viruses, rhinoviruses, coronaviruses, adenoviruses, parainfluenza viruses, respiratory syncytial virus and more. We have always lived and interacted with these viruses and thousands more. Many of these categories of viruses can cause severe illness and even death in certain people. In other people those infections are very mild and self-limiting. In fact, it’s exposure to these viruses, bacteria, and fungi that matures and strengthens our immune systems. So, the notion that we should avoid all germs is preposterous and actually damaging to our health. Two people can be exposed to the same virus and the same viral load and one gets sick and the other doesn’t.

    It is the same organism both people are exposed to, so why the different result? Same germ, different terrain. This is why COVID-19 hits certain groups much harder than others. Those include the elderly, the obese, those with co-morbidities like diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure and vascular diseases, immune deficiency disorders, cancer, respiratory diseases, autoimmune disease, those taking certain medications, the poorly nourished consuming low nutrient dense (junk) foods deficient in vitamins and minerals and not supplementing to offset those deficiencies, and even certain minority groups all are at much greater risk of severe complications and death. This is no surprise and it is not unique to this version of coronavirus or any other pathogenic virus or bacteria for that matter.

    Re: Why Has Everyone Seemingly Forgotten How the Immune System Works?

    What is her ultimate point? Starting @ & Around 11:50 is the meat of the points:

    1. Your immune system clears the virus after 10 days;

    2. You are then immune for life.

    3. Unless you have something like cystic fibrosis, there is limited risk.

    4. No need for the lock-down.

    5. If malnourished, take Vitamin C, Vitamin D3, and Zinc. Help your immune system recover to where it can fight the virus. 80 - 90% of people would have no symptoms if their immune system is functioning. Then take a 3 tablets over 3 days of hyroxycloroquine which are good for 3 weeks (200 mg each) - and you're good to go.

    Older people (>80) should quarantine. But, out of 800 old people doing the above in NY, only 4 had to go to hospital after getting the virus. Virus doesn't take long to circulate through the population and the globe and then get "cleared". Takes about 3 - 4 weeks max for the virus to go around the world and get "cleared' >

    6. Between 7 and 15% of the Irish population would have had the antibodies before SARS-Cov-2 was front of mind.

    7. Some people won't have antibodies because of blood type - but that is because Virus has no entry point into their cells to replicate.

    You haven't dug deep enough, Dexter.

    There are a virtual Cloud of Witnesses who sing as it were in Chorus to the same effect as Professor Dolores Hill, above. -But in 2020, the mainstream media, & many of the scientific institutes which do "fact-checking" - which also have interlocking directorates with =OR= are in the pockets of "Big Pharma" - have either attacked or suppressed them all. -Case in point:

    Dr. Luc Montagnier on Getting Rid of HIV Naturally

    Dr. Luc Montagnier, 2008 Nobel Prize winner for discovering HIV, describes patients’ ability to get rid of HIV naturally if the immune system is supported, and points to the profit motive that stands in the way of this remedy and research.

    Dr. Luc Montagnier: “We can be exposed to HIV many times without being chronically infected. Our immune system will get rid of the virus within a few weeks, if you have a good immune system.”

    Interviewer (Brent Leung): If you have a good immune system, then your body can naturally get rid of HIV?

    Dr. Luc Montagnier: Yes.

    Interviewer: If you take a poor African, who’s been infected and you build up their immune system, is it possible for them to also naturally get rid of it?

    Dr. Luc Montagnier: I would think so.

    Interviewer: That’s an important…

    Dr. Luc Montagnier: It’s important knowledge which is completely neglected. People always think of drugs and vaccine.

    Interviewer: There is no money in nutrition, right?

    Dr. Luc Montagnier: There is no profit, yes.

    Immunity is as immunity does?

    Those of us who understand the value, importance, role of a healthy, functional, naturally effective immune system also understand how many factors can influence whether or not our own immunity, at any given time, is adequate to handle 'invaders' and 'spoilers.' Besides personal habits and practices e.g. diet, exercise, physical make up, breathing, attitudes and thoughts --we have the issues of polluted air, water, soil, anemic foods, emfs, fear energy fields, etc. --all manner of traumas that weaken us.

    In light of all this? To have a strong and resilient-enough immune system, it's essential to believe we do have such immunity: to act as if we do, trust our intentions and abilities to caretake, protect and thrive-alive ourselves... and act as if life is safe. The Field creates the 3-D experience, which includes our physical bodies, immunity.

    Be immune to toxic ideas, perceptions, emotions, actions as best we can. Surrender, accept we've done the best we can, rest in Appreciation.
