How to Calm a "Cytokine Storm" that lurks deep within us.

So today I thought is was crucial that we talk about a "Cytokine Storm".

And what is this "Cytokine Storm" you ask???

Well . . . "cytokines" are the unsung heroes of the immune system. And I bet many of you didn't even know that they exist in the body.

Well, guess what . . . cytokines often act as the first responders to a pathogen infection like this virus.

You see . . . "Cytokines" are molecules that allow our cells to talk to each other (a communication highway and signaling system) and are crucial for a healthy immune system to function properly.

But . . . when the body has "too many" cytokines, it can have a "negative" effect and result in what's known as a "cytokine storm".

Now . . . I know we've spoken about "cytokines" in previous Health tips and even a "cytokine storm" . . . but in today's world and upset . . . I think it needs repeating.

"Cytokines" are a large group of proteins, peptides or glycoproteins that are secreted by specific cells of the immune system.

Okay . . . so listen up people . . . "cytokines" are "signaling molecules" that "regulate" "immunity" and "inflammation".

How important is that??????

There are 33 different types of "cytokines" in the body . . . but we're going to focus on just 2 for today.

As I stated . . . "Cytokines" are the "regulators" of the body's "response" to infection, immune responses, "inflammation" and trauma.

Now . . . "cytokines" can be "good" or "bad" in the body. They're "good", when stimulating the immune system to fight a foreign pathogen like this "virus" or attacking a tumor. These "good" cytokines can also reduce an immune response as in with patients, with multiple sclerosis.

So the "good" "cytokines" serve to reduce "inflammation" and promote healing. These are "anti-inflammatory" cytokines.

On the flipside . . . some "cytokines" act to make disease "worse" and these are called "proinflammatory" cytokines. And these are the ones that cause a "cytokine storm", which allows this "virus" to "replicate" in the human body.

Are you following me so far????

Well . . . guess what??? It's not just this virus that can run amuck in the body when there's a "cytokine storm" . . .

The inflammation from this storm can also lead to arthritis, weight issues, cancer, heart disease and Alzheimer's just to mention a few. And as we know . . . "inflammation" is the fire in the body that we cannot see or feel, which makes it a "silent" killer.

So you ask . . . why do some people get his virus and some don't . . . or some get this virus and have very mild symptoms if any . . . while others become deathly ill and possibly die . . .

Well . . . that all depends on if that people has a "cytokine storm" silently festering in their body "before" they come in contact with this virus.

You see . . . it's not actually the "virus" that kills us . . . it's the "cytokine storm".

As science has already stated . . . the people that have died from this virus all had preexisting health issues. And the people that are at a higher risk of being infected are people with diabetes, heart conditions, cancer, etc., which are all inflammatory illnesses.

So the question for today is this . . . how do we reduce and control the "inflammation" in the body to "lessen" the risk of getting arthritis, heart disease, diabetes, cancer or even this "VIRUS"???

Well . . . the answer would be consuming "anti-inflammatory" foods to control and regulate our "cytokines". Such as berries, omega3 fatty acids like fatty fish, broccoli, avocados, peppers, mushrooms, grapes or green tea.

But . . . I have a secret weapon that I used for my own "cytokine storm" and personal cancer protocol.

And tomorrow I'll tell you all about it.
