The Three Phases of Covid 19

  1. Viral Replication
  2. Cytokine Storm
  3. Viral Thrombosis

You go through all 3 of these stages whether you get Covid 19 or if you have the Covid shot. Like a flu shot, if you take the Covid shot you go through the 3 phases in a much lesser degree than if you get the full-blown virus but their are still risks involved.

I felt drawn to share a little science lesson with you today. When I recently learned this it answered a lot of questions for me.

The three phases of Covid 19 and a little explanation of each

  1. Viral Replication – this is when the virus is multiplying within you. (you may not know you are sick and likely you are contagious)
  2. Cytokine Storm – When your whole body, all of your immune system is under attack. Depending on your health and/or risk factors will have a lot to do with the outcome.
  3. Viral Thrombosis – Blood disorders and blood clots are all part of the “normal” progression of this disease.
3 Phases of Covid 19: 1. Viral Replication, 2. Cytokine Storm, 3. Viral Thrombosis.

The Secret Benefits of the Little Known Vitamin K2

Have you ever struggled with bleeding or bruising easily? Hemorrhage or even simply really heavy periods? How about menopause issues? How about Cysts, Ovarian Cysts or Endometriosis? 

If you experience heavy bleeding during periods, it may signal a lack of vitamin k2

As uncomfortable as it is for me to talk about, I’ll tell you that I had some major bleeding issues while going through Menopause. I didn’t want to have to talk about it or even deal with it but it was affecting my productivity in a major way in my life. As a Mom, as a wife, at my work, at managing my home, it felt like it was all caving in on me. 

From my medical background, I had heard of Vitamin K but had dismissed the idea of using it because it causes blood clotting so quickly that the conclusion was it was dangerous to take as a supplement. I decided I wanted to try just a little of it to see if it would help me. 

Talk about opening a can of worms. I found out there is a huge difference between vitamin K1 & Vitamin K2 – Vitamin K1 is just what I had know about. It helps the blood to clot and has very little other function in the body. 

Vitamin K2, on the other hand, has so many benefits that you must to hear about! It is good for young women, older women & even men 🙂 

It supports the heart, the brain, and has a major role in calcium absorption in our body.
