Today I want to explain a little bit about the Coronavirus (COVID-19) cytokine storm. 

What is a cytokine storm?
A cytokine storm is a situation that can occur in critical cases of the coronavirus. 

A few things that are associated with a cytokine storm are:

• High fever 
• Enlarged spleen 
• A decrease or increase of the white blood cell count 
• Low blood pressure 
• Massive inflammation 

Another name for cytokine storm is macrophage activation syndrome. A macrophage is a white blood cell. 

A cytokine storm will typically occur when someone’s immune system is weak, they have a genetic weakness towards this condition, or they are overweight. 

What is a cytokine?
A cytokine is a communication messenger. It signals the cells to do certain things. When the virus invades the cell, the cell will then send out these messages to let the immune system know there is a problem. 

This is why a huge inflammatory reaction can occur. If it happens in the lungs, there can be destruction in the lungs. The cytokines basically tell your “soldiers” to fight. 

The macrophages are large immune cells that can eat and dissolve certain things like microbes, viruses, and bacteria. 

The B-cell is a part of the immune system that helps you develop antibodies. If you’re exposed to the virus later on, you have protection. 

The mast cell is involved with histamine reactions. 

Interferon releases cytokines, but this is not a cell, it’s a body chemical. This is heavily involved in attacking viruses.

Cytotoxic T cells and natural killer cells have a weapon to kill off the cell that’s infected with the virus. This weapon is called perforin. 

It has been found that with a cytokine storm, perforin is defective. If a person has a genetic defect or problem making perforin and is deficient, that person may have a tendency to have a cytokine storm in the body. It could also be that a person’s immune system is weak and they are deficient in perforin. 

Zinc can actually enhance perforin. This is just another reason to get more zinc.

Susceptibility to the Coronavirus? No One is Talking About This

Today we’re going to talk about coronavirus susceptibility and susceptibility to other viruses. 

When someone sneezes, about 20,000 little droplets containing viruses are projected through the air. For viruses like COVID-19 to spread, it has to be propelled in the air, and you have to come in contact with it. Certain viruses have targets for certain tissues. The coronavirus targets the lungs. 

Viruses are everywhere. One liter of seawater contains over 100 billion viruses. So, it really all comes down to susceptibility.

The purpose of a virus is to deliver its DNA or RNA into the host cell to be copied so it can continue. 

Viruses go through 5 stages:
1. They attach to the cell wall (this is easier for it to do if you’re susceptible)
2. They penetrate the cell wall 
3. They go into the nucleus and replicate 
4. They assemble 
5. They are released 

Some viruses go dormant and wait until you’re older, weakened, nutritionally deficient, or stressed, and then they come out. This could be why many people get a virus outbreak during stress states. Certain viruses can also activate the release of sugar. 

Susceptibility factors:
1. Age
2. Nutritional deficiencies
3. Genetics 
4. Weak immune system 
5. Chronic disease 
6. Stress 

Out of all of these factors, you have the most control over the nutrients you get. Getting the right nutrients can also influence your immune system and even stress.

Two things happen when you have nutritional deficiencies:

1. It weakens your immune system 
2. It makes viruses stronger 

If we take a look at the fatality rate of the coronavirus pandemic and age, the fatality rate is much higher as the age group gets older. For example, people in their 80s and older may have a higher risk of death than people in their 50s and younger. COVID-19 also has a much lower fatality percentage than other viruses like ebola SARS and MERS.

Key nutrients for viruses:

1. Vitamin C
2. Vitamin E 
3. Selenium 
4. Zinc 
5. Vitamin D
