I am Kanika and today let’s talk about what we can do before the vaccine for coronavirus arrives.
Let’s look at some of the past decades. We have seen so many serious disease outbreaks. And there has to be a way because vaccines always take a longer duration to develop.
How Vaccine Works?
The concept of vaccine has two aspects. The first aspect is vaccination; where we insert some kind of antigen inside the body. Now, this antigen can be special molecule from pathogens, dead pathogen or live attenuated form of pathogen. And second aspect is role of the body where it identifies the pathogen and develops an antibody for it.
So, you know, the vaccine is not exactly a cure for a disease. It is just an artificial method to trigger the immunity of the body and then the immunity, the immune system of the body makes the antibodies that are actually required to kill the virus or any pathogen, and because the fact is that we are not capable of making antibodies outside the body. We can only trigger the immunity.
But then there are so many people who are actually infected by this coronavirus, and yet they’re asymptomatic because their immune system was strong enough to handle the virus and keep it in check. And, you know, there is one very important question.
Can we all do it?
And if yes, then how?
Immunity is the reason why the slum children living by the side of gutter, survive and thrive; sometimes even better than kids living in very hygienic conditions, because they have a very strong immunity and even a common cold virus can kill an HIV person because he has low immunity.
So immunity is the key for survival against any disorder.
And corona virus has underlined the role of immunity. The elderly people esp. above 75 years of age have the highest death rate; as their natural immunity is lower as compared to children or youth. Besides people suffering from severe illnesses like diabetes, hypertension, cardiac disorders have a significantly higher death rate compared to people with no co-morbidity.
It is always advised not to get vaccinated when you are sick or suffering from a fever Because when you are sick, your body is already fighting one battle. And vaccines will provide more toxins or more pathogens inside the body and the body will have to shift its focus from one battle to the other battle. Therefore, vaccines also work on the basis of immunity. If there is no immunity, even vaccines are useless!
According to Ayurveda, there can be a countless number of diseases, given the complexity of our metabolic system. And even with a modern perspective, there can be a countless number of mutations, pathogenic mutations in all kinds of microbes and therefore, in every few years, we will have a new virus, a new fatal virus!
Here, the vaccine has a little problem.
You cannot develop a vaccine for an unknown pathogen. And normally vaccines are developed only after a significant number of people are infected by a particular pathogen. However, it is a dangerous approach because in this manner, a vaccine will develop only after a pathogen has killed a certain number of people and therefore vaccination is a great solution, but it is regressive in nature.
It is always behind schedule!
And with more frequent outbreaks of pathogens, new forms of pathogens, we need a more aggressive solution along with vaccination.
Vaccination is an artificial support for developing immunity so that we can develop the technique to fight the real pathogen! but what if we are able to enhance the immunity so that we are ready for any unknown pathogen any time.
Here is another perspective.
Any pandemic epidemic is a vaccination drive by nature. And what if you are able to encounter the virus and your body is able to identify the virus and develop its antibody all at the same time in a very, very short duration? Then you will not fall sick!
And this is something which we can call a perfect state of immunity.
And what if your body can do that?
Is it not safer and more effective?
Because in that case, you would not have to wait for the vaccines!
And in this context, Ayurveda or any form of natural medicine has a very, very aggressive approach because it does not focus on the pathogen outside. It focuses on the body. It focuses on innate immunity, on enhancing the immunity and preserves the health of the healthy, irrespective of the external conditions.
And that’s why, whether it is coronavirus, Zika, Bird Flu, SARS or any new form of fatal pathogen, your body will be able to encounter the pathogen; self-vaccinate itself instantly and you will not fall sick.
You might get the infection. The virus might get inside your body, but you will stay asymptomatic.
And we have already seen many such cases in case of coronavirus, there are people who are infected, but they’re not falling sick. If a person has great immunity, he will be able to develop resistance instantly without any vaccination. And this is the direction in which we should look at, because you don’t know when the coronavirus vaccine is going to actually be there.
And do you think that coronavirus is the last one?
They can be an endless chain of such mutated viruses every few years. and what if the drug-resistant pathogens attack??? We don’t even have proper medicines for them.
And therefore, the only Long-Term, Short-Term, and Real solution is to meet the body’s so strong that it would be able to fight off any and any pathogen.
