It’s Not The Virus that Kills You, It’s Your Immune System
New To Keto But Want To Grow Your Knowledge?
More specifically, you want help with It’s Not The Virus that Kills You, It’s Your Immune System?
so it’s not the virus that kills you
it’s actually your own immune system let’s talk about that so the virus
doesn’t have a metabolism it’s not even alive how can something not alive
actually kill you well what happens is this you have this inactive shell with
some DNA material in there that has very specific instructions to replicate
because there’s certain things on the surface of that virus that connect to
certain tissues and certain receptors in your cell like a lock and a key now COVID-19 connects to what’s called the ACE 2 receptor in your cells and
then they’re able to get into the cell once they’re inside the cell your immune
system doesn’t see them so their goal is to get into the cell as fast as possible
and start to replicate and it hijacks your copy machine your machinery your
metabolism to replicate so that’s actually creating a lot of damage and
then it creates this immune reaction however that’s not what kills you what
kills you is this take a look at this we have two parts of the immune system we
have the innate which is the system that doesn’t need to be trained it’s the
first line of defense and then we have the special forces called the adapted
part of the immune system so if we think about a worst case scenario you’re in
intensive care you’re on a respirator you’re getting a lot of inflammation
going on in lung it’s called a cytokine storm which is a condition where your
lungs are on fire there’s inflammation going on there’s a lot of oxidation
there’s a lot of free radical damage and it’s creating a massive destruction
which then creates bleeding and fibrosis and scar tissue where you eventually
just stop breathing also this destructive inflammatory
condition is happening on the inside of your arteries and it can even create
blood clots you might want to look at this as an overreacting immune system
but in reality it’s really not because this part of the immune system is only
overreacting because part of this system is not working so you have what’s called
the T suppressor cells these cells suppress or regulate the over reaction
one of the purposes is to prevent too much inflammation they basically are the
fire department that floods the water to put out the fire they also prevent
autoimmune diseases but this is your car this would be the brake pad and this is
the accelerator so we have this severe imbalance where we lose this and then we
have too much of this and that’s really what’s killing people the virus is a
trigger and it’s definitely causing a damage in this area but you have to
realize that the virus really only kills people with a weak immune system and
it’s usually certain metabolic conditions that are causing a weakness
within these specific cells right here now in the HIV virus that targets what’s
called the T helper cell this cell is like the quarterback within the entire
immune system and it just will knock this guy right out and now there’s
actually no control you have no more immune system and that’s how someone
would die other strategies will block your vitamin D levels and if you don’t
have enough vitamin D these cells can’t work and you can’t put
out the fire this is why vitamin D is very anti-inflammatory not having enough
vitamin D can create this imbalance certain viruses can create this
imbalance having a pre-existing health issue can create this imbalance as well
so you put all these things together and you’re really at risk from having
problems but you have to realize it’s not the virus itself that is creating
this it’s a lot of other things that are going on at the same time now one of the
defense mechanisms that your immune system has is creating a fever because
creating a fever decreases the duration of infections in fact it increases your
chances of living because it slows down the viral replication but if your immune
system is weak guess what you may not even have a fever not having a fever yet
having an infection means that your immune system is broken also having a
preexisting health problem you already are going into this condition with low
amounts of antioxidants the problem with that is that this overreaction is
creating so much inflammation so much oxidation so many free radicals if we
don’t have the antioxidants to counter that that’s when people start dying this
whole video is really about emphasizing the importance of your immune system
because if your immune system is strong this virus really does not play a big
threat especially if you understand how to strengthen it but if you want
information on that I put the video up right here check it out

Today we’re going to talk about viruses and the immune system. It’s not the virus that kills you. It’s actually your own immune system.
The virus doesn’t have a metabolism. It’s not even alive. Here’s what happens. You have this inactive shell with some DNA that has some very specific instructions to replicate. There are certain things on the surface of the virus that connect to certain tissues and certain receptors in the cell.
For example, COVID-19 connects to the ACE2 receptor. Once it connects, it’s able to get into the cell. Once inside of the cell, the immune system doesn’t see it at first. The goal of the virus is to get into the cell and replicate as fast as possible. This creates a lot of damage and an immune reaction, but it’s not what kills you.
Let’s say you have COVID-19, you’re on a respirator, and you have cytokine storm. This is creating massive destruction, which can lead to death. This destructive inflammatory condition is also happening on the inside of your arteries, and it can even create blood clots. The innate part of the immune system is overreacting because part of the adaptive immune system is not working.
The T suppressor cells, which are a part of the adaptive immune system, suppress or regulate the overreaction. But, there is a severe imbalance going on where you lose the adaptive immune system, including the T suppressor cells, and there is too much of the innate immune system causing the overreaction. This is what’s really killing people.
The virus is a trigger, and it causes damage, but the virus mainly seems to kill people with a weak immune system. It’s usually certain metabolic conditions that cause weakness within the T suppressor cells.
If your immune system is strong, the coronavirus does not seem to be a big threat.
