IMMUNOLOGY 101: A SANE APPROACH TO COVID19

One thing that can be said about this whole “COVID19” ordeal, without a doubt, is the lack of knowledge so many people have of how our GOD-given immune system works, what keeps a person healthy, and the role of antigens within the body.

Sheer ignorance is something that we should be patient with because, obviously, no one knows everything. But when hateful belligerence becomes the response of the ignorant upon hearing the TRUTH, then we truly are dealing with a different sort of brain washing. This type of blind abandonment which favors fear and hatred is very concerning!

The following explanation, by Dr. Dan Erickson, deserves not only to be considered, but also to be highlighted. After all, REAL knowledge is self-empowering and (as we are seeing these days) trying to be snuffed out.

“The immune system is built by exposure to antigens… viruses, bacteria. When you’re a little child crawling on the ground, putting stuff in your mouth, viruses and bacteria come in, you form an antigen-antibody complex… you form IgG, IgM… This is how your immune system is built.

You don’t take a small child, put them in bubble wrap in a room and say, go have a healthy immune system. This is immunology, microbiology 101. This is the basis of what we’ve known for years. So what I’m seeing is when you take human beings and you say, go into your house, clean all your counters, Lysol them down… you’re going to kill 99% of viruses and bacteria, wear a mask, don’t go outside… What does that do to our immune system?

Our immune system is used to touching. We share bacteria, staphylococcal, streptococcal bacteria, viruses. We develop an immune response daily with this stuff. When you take that away from me, my immune system drops. As I shelter in place, my immune system drops. You keep me there for months, it drops more. And now I’m at home hand washing vigorously, washing the counters, worried about things that are, indeed, what I need to survive.

Let’s follow the science. This is immunology folks, this is microbiology. This is common sense immunology.If someone has a reduced immune system, you hide them away because they can’t build an immune system. If you have a normal functioning immune system, you need interaction.

When a child is in a womb, you’re in this protected environment. When you come out, you have almost no immune system. You develop that through touching your mouth, touching your eyes, virus, bacteria, virus, bacteria, immune response, IgG, IgM. This is how you build a strong immune system.”— Dan Erickson, MD, emergency medicine, Accelerated Urgent Care in Bakersfield, California

It is my sincere hope that the TRUTH behind getting well, staying well, and living well will begin to GROW and that we will become a healthier people. Regardless of the world systems, the hateful, the fearful, and those who choose blatant ignorance – the TRUTH WILL COME FORTH for those who have ears to hear!

Shalom to you! —

The Choice Is Yours

QUESTION: Why do some people, when exposed to a sick person, always walk away sick while other people walk away fine?

ANSWER: Immunity – weak vs.strong. Regardless of the extent of how communicable COVID19 may or may not be, it is still a “virus”. Viruses don’t go around jumping on folks and biting them willy nilly.

Simple immunology tells us that the difference between getting sick and staying well is the condition of your immune system. The real issue that we’re dealing with is a spiritual heart issue. How you choose to respond will reveal you to be weak or strong. #ShalomDoc
