Today I want to answer the question, “why can’t we kill a virus?” Are viruses alive? No. You can’t kill a virus because viruses are not alive. What is a virus? A virus is a piece of genetic material wrapped in a sack that invades the body. They go into the cells and latch onto the machinery of the cells (usually the DNA), and they use our own body’s energy to replicate. You can’t kill a virus, but you can put a virus in remission. When a virus is in remission it’s in a dormant state which is called a latent virus. For example, if you’ve had a viral infection in the past, the virus is still in your body. It will stay dormant until you’re stressed, sick, tired, and nutritionally deficient, and then it comes out and is reactivated. But, this time, it may show up as something like type 1 herpes, EBV, HPV, CMV, or shingles.

3 important nutrients that help suppress viruses:
• Vitamin D (Decreases the risk of cervical cancer, influenza virus, and respiratory infections)
• Zinc (Decreases the frequency, duration, and severity of viruses especially with herpes and shingles)
• Selenium (If you’re deficient in selenium you get a lot more viral reactivation)
