Did you know that the COVID-19 otherwise known as the Coronavirus is a type of RNA virus? What it has in common with the Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) that was going around in 2003 & the Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) in 2012 is that they are all RNA viruses that infect the lung. Hepatitis C is also an RNA virus, but it infects the liver. There are other viruses such as Hepatitis A & B, but those are considered DNA viruses. It is important to understand what is the coronavirus and how does it work?
Viruses are small particles of genetic material that are surrounded by a protein coat that are incapable of reproducing on their own. They depend on hosts they infect for their very survival. COVID-19 is a proliferation of a harmful virus inside the lung. Viruses infect a host by introducing their RNA into the lung cells nucleus and hijacking the lung cell’s internal machinery to make more virus particles. With an active viral infection, a virus uses host DNA to copies of itself and bursts the host cell (killing it) to set the newly-formed virus particles free
In other words, the RNA virus takes over the host’s DNA genes to help the RNA virus produce more RNA virus. The fact that RNA can change very easily from host to host is what makes it so difficult to make a vaccine to prevent the COVID-19. Viruses also reduce lymph cells in our body which is important for producing B-Cells, T-Cells, Anti-bodies, and immunity such as interferon, TNF-α, etc.
We know that the Virus originated in the city of Wuhan, Hubei Province in China. For being the place that the virus originated from they have done a good job by containing the virus by two methods. First, is by stopping transport in and out of all the cities in Hubei Province and second, by using Chinese herbal medicine for improving human immunity (increased interferon).
For a thousand years, Chinese herbal medicine books have been writing about the nutritional benefits that bamboo has. Did you know that the Chinese Pandas are one of the oldest living mammals on the earth and have been around for some two million years? They have survived and evolved all this time and their diet consists of only one thing, bamboo. They contain lots of amino acids, fibers, rich minerals, and very strong anti-bacterial, anti-viral effects which make them excellent for upper respiratory conditions.
For those who are looking for prevention, we recommend taking Bamboo Extract, 3 capsules in the morning before leaving the house. Even for children, they can take Bamboo Extract for prevention. We recommend taking one capsule daily. You open the capsule and mix the bamboo extract into applesauce. For those who are experiencing flu-like symptoms such as runny nose, sore throat, phlegm or cough we recommend taking Bamboo Extract, Oxypower, and Liver Chi.
We recommend taking Liver Chi for RNA viruses. Liver Chi not only supports good Liver Health, but it also increases Interferon production, and is the only herbal supplement for treating the Hepatitis C virus which is another RNA virus. Interferons are named for their ability to “interfere” with viral replication by protecting cells from virus infections. In as quick as 6 days, Liver Chi can suppress the replication and expression of the Hepatitis C virus. This means that the virus stays intact inside the cells and can no longer infect normal cells. The virus then eventually dies due to the body’s immunity.
Oxypower is recommended for those who are experiencing symptoms such as shortness of breath. In October 7, 2019, William G. Kaelin Jr., Peter J. Ratcliffe, and Gregg L. Semenza were awarded the Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine. The trio of researchers discovered and established an understanding of how the human body and cells adapt to different oxygen levels. Whether oxygen levels are low or high, human cells are able to learn and adapt to their environment. Joan Massagué, director of the Sloan Kettering Institute in New York City, states that when oxygen levels are too low, “Cells know that they have to take emergency measures to adapt their metabolism or adapt their behavior”. These emergency measures are called Hypoxia- inducible factors (HIF).Oxypower is extremely vital to help cell mitochondria use oxygen efficiently to avoid induce HIF especially for lung and heart conditions.
Don’t forget to always wash your hands thoroughly and avoid touching your face! It will help prevent spreading germs. We hope we can all work towards a healthy 2020.
