Yeah, the immunosuppressants are a pain, but necessary in most cases with a transplant. They are working on that now though, they are investigating
chemistry that only targets specific organs for immunosuppressant activity. It may be another five to ten years before they work it all out. Our
medical research is evolving, no thanks to pharma companies who just buy the patent from the government paid research then charge enormous prices for
the meds they sell. I am kind of disgusted with what I am finding in my researching this stuff.
The vaccinations usually do not work very well when your immune system isn't working. Vaccines are meant to stimulate a specific response of our
immune system, when your immune system is basically shut down, not much works. Trying to stay away from sick people is the best thing to do. It is
not only viruses, it is also microbes that cause problems. With microbes it is easier, some foods directly kill them.
I wonder if some of the chemistries that directly disable viruses could help to disuade a person who is immune compromised to help fight viruses.
Onions and garlic have some of those properties, the quercetin and proteinases in onion can disable virus replication somewhat. Coconut oil treated
with a lipase...basically monolaurin...can soften the virus and soften the part that enters the cell too so it cannot replicate. The monolaurin's
biggest effect is that it softens microbes to allow the body to attack.
Also, bromelain in pineapple or just the supplement can help to break apart the mucus protecting cancer cells and disolves some microbes shell. It
also works like the proteinase in onions. Another good thing for destroying viruses is fresh grapefruit, it contains proteinases and a couple of
chemicals, Naringenin and lutinen, that destroy viruses through autophagy, but it also effects a lot of enzymes, so some meds and grapefruit do not
get along. I am not sure if I got those names correct, doing it from memory.
You would have to talk to a doctor who specializes in this to find the best approach to fighting diseases when you are on meds like that....if one
exists. Maybe a specialist might know, I have not studied the meds that are used to shut down the immune system for transplants, I do not know much
about that group of meds.
