Where did COVID come from? What can you do right now to make sure you can fight the virus, if you are ever infected? Should you get vaccinated?
In this episode of the Align Podcast, Dr. Steven Quay and I discuss how the Coronavirus has been able to develop so quickly in the human body, the mechanisms of it, and how our immune system works to fight it. We talk about how exactly vaccines act to help our body fight viruses and how the antibody-dependent enhancement’s (ADE) unpredictability can affect people of different ages.
Plus, Dr. Quay points out how the posture that we tend to hold during the day causes us to lose lung capacity. With our lungs and intercostal muscles being primordial to effectively fight the hazards of COVID, he suggests a yoga-based practice to help us develop both of these capacities.
Dr. Steven Quay has over 360 published contributions to medicine, placing him in the top 1% of scientists worldwide. He holds 87 US patents and has invented seven FDA-approved pharmaceuticals which have helped over 80 million people. He is the author of the best-selling book on surviving the pandemic, Stay Safe: A Physician's Guide to Survive Coronavirus.
