We’ve all heard it before – you need a vaccine to protect yourself from the flu or there’s not really a good cure for the common cold, and that the best thing you can do for a cold or the flu is to fill your body with a cocktail of medications designed to suppress your symptoms until the illness disappears.
How Viruses Work
However, the problem with this approach is that it would actually be better for you body to let a cold or flu run its course rather than trying to suppress it. Colds and flus both come from viruses that affect your body at a cellular level.
Unlike your healthy cells, viruses cannot duplicate themselves, but once they gain access to one of your cells, there are two main ways that viruses multiply in your body.
Certain types of viruses can replicate themselves many times within one cell until the cell bursts (lytic effect) and release the new viruses to attack other cells.
Other viruses attach themselves to the very DNA of your cells so that they are a part of each daughter cell that is produced from the original cell.
Why Should You Avoid Conventional Medicine Made By The Pharmaceutical Industry?
Although a flu or cold can cause you great discomfort, it can actually strengthen your immune system in the long run. In fact, viruses usually infect your weakest cells, the ones that are already full of toxins and waste products. By allowing a common cold to clean out these cells, your body can rid itself of these already old and damaged cells.
Have you ever been amazed by how much “stuff” you could blow out of your nose while you had a cold or the flu? Embedded within all of that mucous are countless dead cells that your body is saying good bye to, largely due to the lytic effect of viruses.
