from the discussion
- The new coronavirus behaves in six
different ways: Viral, bacterial, HIV-like, it causes immunoinflammation,
thromboinflammation and cytokine storm.
- This virus causes immune (antigen)
triggered inflammation wherever ACE2 receptors are present. If
pre-existing inflammation, it will flare up.
- This is a disease of the inflammation of
the digestive and metabolic fires of the body.
- There are two types of fire or agni in
the body: microbiome fire and my agni
fire. The balance or imbalance between the two causes health
and disease. This virus triggers and increases agni in the body leading
to disruption of the body’s thermostat resulting in low grade fever.
- If baseline CRP is less than 1, then no
impact; if 1-3, then exacerbation of fire and if more than 3, then there
is high hyperinflammation leading to vasculitis, thrombus formation,
neoangiogenesis and hypoxia.
- The route of entry is GI or respiratory.
The virus may be present in GI system much before it is seen in the
respiratory system and even if not seen in the respiratory tract.
- Skin biopsy may also be positive for the
- If fragments of the antigen persist, the
person may be a carrier; they may also cause recurrence of symptoms,
reactivation of illness and trigger inflammation.
- There are six antigens in Covid-19
virus: E, S, N, ORF 1a, ORF 1b and RDRP antigen. The RT PCR test assesses
the antigens and not the virus.
- E antigen is must; it is common for all
corona viruses. If negative, no corona.
- We do not know yet which antigen
persists for more than 9 days or longer. We must find out which of these
antigens is infectious.
- When we say RT PCR is positive, it is
important to know which antigen is positive.
- True Nat tests RDRP; Singapore at
airports are testing N, ORF and S;
- If we find out which part of the virus
(antigen) is causing which inflammation, this could be a game changer.
- In patients with insulin resistance,
where there is already low grade inflammation, the trigger is faster and
