Staying home quarantined due to respiratory virus? Sorry to hear that. Do you think the virus affects only the breathing system? Wrong! Viruses and bacteria that were starved while we were quarantined are taking advantage of us and bombarding the immune system of the population. A lot of dormant genetic predispositions, minor belly pains might get worse with viruses and of course bacteria. Do you know that the gut is an active participant in all our immune responses? Yes it is!. Viruses or bacteria can awaken unwanted reactions in our esophagus, stomach, intestine, colon, nerves, muscles.
