Inflammation is a vital part of the immune system’s response to injury and infection. It is the body’s way of signaling the immune system to heal and repair damaged tissue, as well as defend itself against foreign invaders, such as viruses and bacteria

darren weissman: when we are in a state of stress.. our energy field goes into a state of resistance.. that’s why a polygraph works.. in that energy our blood is affected.. doesn’t flow as effectively.. heats/cools/resists.. that affects our ph.. we become more acidic.. in a localized or systemic full body acidity.. inflammation occurs.. it’s just a reactive way of pumping more blood to attempt to help w healing.. however.. starting to go down a slippery slope.. cause that inflammation is a fire.. that starts to burn the house down

1:04 – michael bernard beckwith: i always say all forgiveness is self forgiveness.. because all the resentment/unforgiveness/rancor/anger .. all of those thoughts are something that’s happening within me.. even if someone did me wrong.. i still have those thoughts .. those thoughts are affecting me/body/blood-chem.. so when i begin to forgive the so called other person.. i’m released rancor/resent/animosity.. releasing all that unforgiveness.. so actually .. forgiving myself.. nothing to do w them.. everything to do w me

1:05 – crone: forgiveness .. when it comes to emotions.. is the greatest access to letting go.. hatred of parent, judgment of co worker.. just let go of that inner judgment blame.. and basically a victim mindset.. if you can let go of that.. and realize that life is actually working for you, not against you, then again, you’re gonna generate healing

let go.. (of that control unforgiveness or whatever holds)

we haven’t yet gotten to global equity

judge\ment, blame, .. to unconditional ness

1:05 – braden: what about children.. coming into world w condition.. how can that be their sub conscious..  i don’t know.. what i do know w/o a doubt.. is once they come into this world.. their body will respond to the environs and conditions we give to them.. our job is to learn to optimize those conditions

optimal has to be.. and can now be.. all of us.. ie:

Inflammation: the key factor that explains vulnerability to severe COVID #covid19 #coronavirus
Original Tweet:

A common feature for many patients that get severe COVID is serious lung damage caused by an overly vigorous immune response. This is characterised by the creation of lots of inflammatory products called cytokines – the so-called cytokine storm.

Cytokines can be really powerful tools in the immune response: they can stop viruses reproducing, for example. However, some cytokine actions – such as helping bring in other immune cells to fight an infection or enhancing the ability of these recruited cells to get across blood vessels – can cause real damage if they are not controlled. This is exactly what happens in a cytokine storm.

Once the virus is safely inside these cells, it causes them to start making lots of inflammatory cytokines – effectively kick-starting the cytokine storm. And the higher the levels of glucose, the more successful the virus is at replicating inside the cells – essentially the glucose fuels the virus.

.. in severe COVID the way monocytes and macrophages work misfires. And this is particularly true in patients with diabetes and obesity.
