Swine Flu, and Natural Human Immune Response Mechanisms
During normal immune response against infection the human body significantly increases the level of lymphocytes and cytokine cells used to eliminate microorganism and toxins. This release in lymphocytes and cytokines is regulated by the body’s secretion of prostaglandins near the point of infection. These prostagladins monitor the severity of infection and causes the body to release fluids (inflammation) in an attempt to prevent the spread of the infection while sending electrical/chemical signals back to the immune regulators to call in phagocyte cells to destroy the infecting bodies. However, when virus like the swine flu infiltrates the human biology such viruses utilize the body’s enzymes and subsequently release proteins (viral expression) that interfere with the prostaglandin responses sending sporadic signal codes to the immune response centers. When this happens the human response system panics, like a blind man who is being jumped by four or five people. Like the blind man swinging wild at everything that moves about him the body’s response mechanism is to quickly recruit incredibly large numbers of neutrophils (phagocytes) that converts biological hydrogen peroxide to hydroxide ion radical and super oxygen anion radical two of the most powerful oxidizing agents known to eliminate the infections. This uncontrollable release of oxidizing agents by the human immune system not only kills the virus but also damage sensitive skin tissue and cells in the lungs, respiratory areas, and ultimately other organs. Unless this scenario is halted quickly the ultimate end is death of the human person.
Vaccines are generally dead viruses or portions of viral proteins that stimulate the body’s production of antigenic material and antibodies that kill viruses by blocking the virus replication mechanisms. These antibodies also stimulate other biochemical molecules to block the effect of viruses on the natural human immune response mechanism. Once the viral effect has been blocked the human biological response will modulate (equilibrate) back to its normal state and can now act specifically on the secondary bacteria infections that are more responsible for human sickness.
Yet, is the use of vaccines the only way to block viral expression in humans? If an over exaggerated immune response is the ultimate cause of human fatality caused by such deadly viruses as the swine virus then should it not be possible to halt the effect of a runaway human immune response by imitating the bodies natural biological defense systems for modulating the immune response mechanisms? In other words, if you understand what biochemical substances are produced in the human immune response to eliminate infection it should be possible to introduce natural substances similar in structure, active functionality, and biochemical class into the human organism that will balance out the immune response, restart normal prostaglandin signaling thereby eliminating destruction of human cells and tissues, while effectively directing human biochemical agents to kill viral and bacterial intrusions. Is such a thing possible?
