How viruses and bacteria can be helpful—not harmful

I think it’s safe to say most people think that viruses and bacteria are bad, dangerous and something that should be avoided at all cost.

Well, that’s not entirely true.   As a matter of fact, sometimes they are even good guys!

Here’s why.

An inventory of your innards

Your body contains about 37 trillion cells, and while that may sound like a big number, it’s a drop in the bucket compared to the microbes inside of you, which total about 744 trillion!

Scientists estimate the microbe population in your body is made up of about 40 trillion bacteria and 400 trillion viruses! 

The remaining 300 trillion microbes in your innards include fungi, protozoa, parasitic worms, prions and protists (like amoeba).

But they’re not all bad guys!

While the thought of the ENORMOUS number of microbes you are hosting may be a bit unsettling, the good news is most of them are either not harmful, or possibly even helpful!

For example, your bacteria population is comprised of good and bad species.  The good ones help digest your food, protect you against the harmful ones and provide a home for 80 percent of your immune system, among other things.

So even if you do have harmful bacteria lurking inside of you, if your gut and your population of friendly bacteria is strong, most times they won’t cause a problem. 

The same can be said for viruses. There are bad viruses and harmless viruses, and scientists even think that some bad viruses support strong health by killing certain harmful bacteria! 

And even some of the viruses that do make you sick help you in the long run.  For example, viruses like the common cold and the flu attack your weakest, unhealthiest cells—typically those cells that are overloaded with wastes and toxins. 

Well, the virus kills these unhealthy cells and they in turn are replaced by new healthier cells!

Be good to your microbes

The key to living in harmony with your family of microbes is to support strong health in your cells, rid your body of wastes and toxins that make you a target for illness to fester, nourish your beneficial bacteria and pamper your immune system!

That way your body’s natural system of balance (homeostasis) can keep harmful microbes at bay, and even if they do rear their ugly heads, you can recover a lot faster and be on the road to better health. 

Here are some very effective measures you can take to achieve these vital goals:

Eat real food.  There is no getting around this.  If you want to keep your cells clean and nourished, stay away from processed foods, fast food, sugars and soda. 

Concentrate on wholesome real foods like meats, vegetables, fresh fruits, eggs and healthy fats like olive oil, coconut oil and real butter.  Also, drink at least 8 glasses of filtered water a day. 

Enhance your immune health.  Nothing beats vitamin D when it comes to sharp immune system functioning, but many people are deficient in this crucial nutrient.  Food sources are limited, and many people don’t get enough sun exposure for their bodies to make vitamin D. 

That’s why a supplement like Optimum DK Formula with FruiteX-B can be a lifesaver to so many people!  Optimum DK Formula provides a therapeutic 5,000 IUs of vitamin D3, plus vitamins K1 and K2 and the mineral boron—all of which work together to support a strong, sharp immune response.

Encourage better digestion.  Good digestion is crucial to help your body eliminate wastes and toxins.  To pave the way for better digestion, avoid eating proteins (like meats) and starches (bread, pasta and potatoes) together in the same meal.  Protein-starch meals are very taxing on your system and are a leading cause of heartburn and constipation. 

Instead pair proteins OR starches with vegetables (other than potatoes and corn)—you’ll feel a difference IMMEDIATELY. 

Beef up your friendly microbes.  There’s nothing like probiotics to help support a healthy population of friendly bacteria, and Super Shield multi-strain probiotic formula is as good as it gets!

Super Shield’s 13 strains of well- studied, potent bacteria get to work immediately to line your gut wall, support digestion, keep harmful bacteria in check and provide a sound home for your immune system.

Use antibiotics only when necessary.  Antibiotics obliterate your friendly gut flora, and depending on how long you take them and how strong they are, it can take your gut up to a YEAR to recover! 

While antibiotics are sometimes necessary, putting the other suggestions I’ve mentioned above in place can help reduce your need for antibiotics overall!

To your healthy, happy microbes,
