The Coronavirus has been in existence since the 1960s when it was discovered in the nasal cavities of 2 human patients, and labeled Human Coronavirus 229E and OC43. Through the years a few new strains have been identified, such as, SARS in 2003, MERS in 2012, and now Novel/Wuhan Coronavirus in 2019.
The 2019 Coronavirus originated in Wuhan, China and has spread across the world over the last few months. Wuhan is home to China’s only Biosafety level 4 (BSL-4) laboratory. A BSL-4 laboratory is a facility that operates under the highest level of biosafety precautions and is able to work with agents that could easily be aerosol-transmitted, cause fatal disease, and for which a treatment is unknown. In 2017 the Wuhan facility was authorized to begin working with potentially harmful agents, and the first priority was to study the SARS virus. This raised much worry around the globe because the SARS virus had already escaped a BSL-3 facility in Beijing on multiple occasions.¹
In 2015 it was published in the Methods of Molecular Biology that research was being conducted that involved bioengineering the full length cDNA of MERS as bacterial artificial chromosomes. The article claims that, “the development of CoV infectious clones provides a valuable molecular tool to study fundamental viral processes, to develop genetically defined vaccines, and to test antiviral drugs.” ² Samples have provided evidence that COVID-19 is a clone of SARS as bacterial artificial chromosome.
Based upon what has been described and the known fact that China hid the rate of COVID-19 infections in Wuhan from the World Health Organization (WHO) it is a reasonable assumption that this virus is a man-made bio-agent that escaped the BSL-4 facility in Wuhan. The virus has since spread across the world and has now been deemed a pandemic by the WHO, and when a disease is marked as a pandemic then the creation of a vaccine is allowed to be administered without prior human testing.
The symptoms of the coronavirus include: runny nose, sore throat, cough, fever, and difficulty breathing in severe cases. This pandemic has caused panic in the United States due to its spread. Now is the time to choose faith over fear. Be your own best health advocate, and live the 5 essentials for optimal health. The key to not only overcoming COVID-19, but any potential health crisis is to live the 5 essentials, and it is never too late to start.
Essential 1: Mindset
Fear and worry about the coronavirus has caused people to empty shelves at grocery stores and place a heightened attention to the news media. Fear and worry do not serve the immune system well, and actually disrupt the response of natural killer cells that are vital in fending off viral invaders.³ Some of the best ways to fend off fear and worry is: diaphragmatic breathing, walking outside, meditation, gratitude journaling, and exercise.
Essential 2: Chiropractic
The central nervous system is in charge of regulating immune function. The vertebral subluxation interferes with the transmission of nerve impulses traveling from and to the brain. This creates disorganization in the brain and that results in decreased immune response. In order to increase immune function it is vital to receive at least a weekly adjustment. It has been well documented in research that the adjustment immediately affects immune system function. People who receive adjustments weekly are shown to have 200% greater immune competence than the average population based on research by Ronald Pero, Ph.D., former chief of cancer prevention research at New York’s Preventive Medicine Institute and professor of medicine at New York University.
Essential 3: Nutrition
The standard American diet is full of pro-inflammatory processed foods and sugar. This causes a state of chronic inflammation, and the reason for inflammation is to signal an immune response. Over time as the immune system is in a state of constant activation it becomes suppressed and less efficient at fighting off viral invaders. Strengthen your immune system by adhering to the Advanced Plan found on page 167 of Align Your Health. You can also assist your immune system by taking ML Vitamin D3+Probiotics, ML Daily Defense, and ML Vitamin C after your first meal of the day.
Essential 4: Exercise
Habitual exercise is shown to improve immune system function and delay age related dysfunction. The key though is the right dosing of exercise, because overtraining can cause suppression of the immune system, and MaxT3 has you covered. At the frequency of 3 times a week for 12 minutes MaxT3 is one of the most science backed programs in existence.
Essential 5: Detoxification
The liver is the frontline in detecting and capturing viruses and bacteria. Boost the functioning of your liver with the ML Detox System.
