What about the immune system?

Viruses are everywhere. There are an estimated 380 trillion viruses inhabiting our bodies (here's a very interesting article about the human virome). There's a lot of talk about treating viral disease at the moment, and about developing vaccines, but generally in the mainstream media there is very little information on our own innate resources. I feel compelled to redress the balance a bit, and give some information on how we can protect ourselves. There are two aspects to not contracting symptoms of a virus. On the one hand it's about minimising exposure... hand-washing, wearing a mask, avoiding contact... But just [...]

Viruses and cellular nutrition: an immunologist’s perspective

Studies as far back as the 1960s and 70s looked at the higher rates of infection in malnourished children in developing countries in comparison with those who were adequately nourished. These were epidemiological (population) studies. But laboratory research has been demonstrating the role of micronutrition in cellular immunity for decades, too. "There's no virus that can penetrate a healthy cell fed with nutrition at optimal levels."Dr Myron Wentz, PhD Microbiology, specialty in immunology This was the bold statement made by Dr. Myron Wentz in 2019. On the face of it, this seems like a fairly outrageous claim. But the word [...]

Are we defenseless?

When it comes to viral infections, national health policies focus heavily on disease management and vaccination -- which have their place. But this approach leaves a vacuum: Mainstream media like to perpetuate the belief that we are helpless and incapable of protecting our own health, and sadly, there seems to be an absence of any mention of strengthening the immune system or using the powerful vitamins, minerals and phytochemicals as well as the other physical and mental tools at our disposal. Such talk is being increasingly dismissed as fake news or dangerous quackery. The body's innate ability to heal and [...]

Why supplements

BY DAVID GRIFFITHS I wish I didn't feel the need to write this article... At heart, I'm a back-to-nature, live-off-the-land kind of guy who loves the feeling of living in harmony with the beautiful planet that we have inherited The idea that our diet doesn't provide all that it needs to for good health in the 21st century is something that I struggle with, but being around the health and fitness industry for 20 years has led me to certain inescapable conclusions which I'll explore here. You obviously don't have to reach the same conclusions as I have but I [...]

How to Survive the 21st Century—Part 1

DAVID GRIFFITHS There are a multitude of factors which go to make up our overall health. Health should be defined not merely as the absence of disease but as a feeling of physical, mental, emotional and spiritual empowerment and wellbeing, which allows us to live our lives to their full potential. Our aim over the course of these articles is to both distill those elements of health to provide starting points for discussion, and then put some flesh on those bones. I’m very keen on using the pyramid below as a starting point to help people firstly to evaluate the [...]
