A note about Different Types of Viruses - Information and Prevention
In natural health and healing, we believe in holistic health and healing, as we realize that different parts of the human body are highly interlinked, often beyond Man's understanding. We also believe that the body has the ability to heal itself of any disease, even supposedly incurable diseases.
In order to do so, the body needs the support of some basic dietary and lifestyle good health habits, such as a full body detox and a proper understanding and application of nutrition. No matter how remote or unrelated a health condition may seem, these fundamental health steps will greatly magnify the effects and benefits of any of our health-promoting efforts, including the use of specific natural health remedies.
Their origin is unclear, but they are found wherever there is life. Since the discovery of the tobacco mosaic virus (first virus studied) in 1898, some 5,000 types of viruses have been discovered. Viruses are, by far, the most prolific type of living organism on the planet.
The sole purpose of a virus is to replace itself. They do, however, need a host in order to accomplish this. In the process of this invasion, the virus destroys the original cell and proceeds to reproduce at a phenomenal rate.
They are made up of two to three parts, depending on their type. All the different types of viruses have genes made from either DNA or RNA (genetic information), and a protein coating for protection; still others are wrapped in fat when they are outside a cell. Their shapes vary from the very simple to the more complex.
Here are descriptions of some of the different types of viruses.
