Kurzgesagt - In a NutShell (The Immune-System Explained)
The most powerful part of your immune system. Billions of these clever little bullets will flood the battlefield connecting to the membrane and backs of bacterias and viruses. Immobilizing and weakening them, making them more tasty to the big blubbery macrophages that come and eat them all. Antibodies create the environment needed to triumph.
Cedar has an amazing compound in it called Thujone that stimulates your immune system like mad. When you are having cedar tea your immune system has 30% more macrophages, 7% more lymphocytes (Killer T, Helper T) and the dendritic cells collect their intelligence needed, faster, and deliver it to B cells and T cells in half the time, Thujone also throws B cells into overdrive which administer multiple times the amount of antibodies.
So what happens when you drink cedar tea everyday? You most often get better before you even feel sick.
What happens when you start to have cedar tea once you already feel sick, you simply get better in record time.
First Nations people have a crappy respiratory tract. You ever wonder why when H1N1 was going around, we were a priority for the vaccine? I think it was children, elders and first nations. Could it be because the government and Health Canada were making sure they were taking care of their first peoples? Well, that would be nice, and a first, but the real reason why is because they were legally obligated.
Because of our terrible respiratory tract. They know this and so, with knowledge comes responsibility. They had to take care of this.
What do I mean when our respiratory tract is lame? Its because it had an environmental line of defence against invaders like viruses, bacteria and fungi. This line of defence was salt. We came from the coast. We came from an area where breathing was medicine, all that salt water. Go to the coast and see if you can find someone that has a sinus infection, it wont happen. They even make commercials to advertise salt water in aerosol canisters to spray up your nose.
