It's had to believe that we are approaching the last two months of the year. 2020 has brought so many mixed emotions. There have been extreme highs and crazy lows.
Regardless of how 2020 has been and is for you, we all can agree that putting our immunity first is key.
What is a virus?
A virus is defined as genetic material contained within an organic particle that invades living cells and uses their host's metabolic processes to produce a new generation of viral particles. There are millions of viruses floating through the air at any given moment.
Once you come in contact with a virus it will attach itself into your membranes and from there is pushed down into your cells. Then after the virus copies itself and creates new millions of itself in your body. While the virus is trying to spread itself throughout your body, your immune system fights it off. Think of your immune system as a your own personal army, just waiting to defend your body against invaders.
Without a strong immune system your body doesn't stand a chance against any virus.
We often hear the saying " he/she was a healthy person and died from this or that".
But the truth is if someone has a elevated immune system, their body can better defend itself against harmful viral attacks. A virus cannot thrive or survive in a healthy environment.
A person can still catch a virus with a secure immune system, but they may experience minimal symptoms for a short period of time.
