The Immune System in a New Viral Age; moving forward with confidence
Why is it that some, when contracting a virus such as COVID-19, move through it with a slight annoyance and others are brought to their knees or worse, to the end of their life?
I'm stating the obvious when I say that "we are not machines" but organisms that have evolved over millions of years with an equally ancient immune system.
As we are all experiencing this current viral crisis I have given a lot of thought to how we are going to move forward in this new world of ours.
Building on the current miniseries, Immune System/Coronavirus/Visceral Connections, in the upcoming August miniseries we will explore some key components to what it takes to build, support and enhance our immune response.
For the most part we live our lives separate from our ancient past and disconnected from that accumulated wisdom. However, with a more precise understanding of where we have come from (our evolution) and what has gone into creating this human experience we will see the path forward more clearly.
