Every year, there is an outbreak of influenza and millions of people get sick and many people die each year from the flu. In 2019, it is estimated that more than 12,000 people died from influenza in the United States. As of March 2, 2020, there have been less than 100 cases of Corona virus in the U.S. Although the media has done a great job at creating mass hysteria over this virus, as you can tell from the statistics, it is not nearly as prevalent as the year influenza virus. Whether it is the normal influenza virus or the corona virus, it normally only affects the weak and feeble people. That is because normal healthy individuals are able to mount an effective immune response and kill viruses, bacteria or any pathogens that invades our body. So what is it about the weak and frail that makes them susceptible to infections in general, including viruses, and why are healthy people protected? This seems to be a very important question so everyone can prepare and fortify their body in case they come in contact with the Corona virus or any other infectious agent.
Pathology is taught during the first and sometimes second year of medical school. The primary textbook used in many medical schools is Robbins Pathology. On page 58, it clearly states “Well vascularized tissues are more resistant to infections and capable of localizing/containing offending agents. By contrast, poorly vascularized tissues are relatively inefficient in responding to inflammatory stimuli.” This means that if you have good circulation and blood flow to every tissue in the body, then this allows your immune system to mobilize a strong defense against any invading pathogen. If you don’t have good blood flow and circulation, the infection is takes hold and makes you sick and can sometimes kill you. This is basic physiology. The regulation of blood flow and circulation is based on your ability to produce nitric oxide. Another important fact about nitric oxide is that it is the molecule also produced by our immune cells to kill the invading viruses and bacteria. So if your body can’t produce nitric oxide, your body cannot and will not be able to defend itself from getting sick from an infection, including the Corona virus.
Although nitric oxide is required and essential for protecting yourself from infections, it is not all that you need to do. Below are my basic recommendations to keep yourself and your family safe from all infections including the Corona virus. I have practiced these techniques for over 17 years and I have not been sick or lost a single day of work due to illness during that same time. I know it works and it can work for you and everyone in your family.
Steps to avoid illness from infectious disease:
These are just some very simple and inexpensive tips to practice daily, even outside a flu epidemic to stay healthy and free from illness. During every flu outbreak, there is mass hysteria. In every case, the strong survive and the weak get sick and sometimes die. Our goal everyday is to fortify our body to make it the strongest it can be so it can protect and defend us from the many pathogens that we encounter every day. I encourage you to stay vigilant, don’t panic but be smart about what you do and where you go. The human body is a remarkable and resilient system that is able to protect us from many dangers if we give it what it needs. Don’t be left weak and a victim to the Corona virus. Nitric oxide is what separates the weak from the strong.
