Viral diseases, based on their DNA & RNA
A viral disease is any illness or health condition caused by a virus.
Viruses cause a number of diseases in eukaryotes. In humans, covid-19, smallpox, the common cold, chickenpox, influenza, shingles, measles, polio, Ebola, and AIDS are examples of viral diseases. Even some types of cancer — though definitely not all — have been linked to viruses.
There are many viral diseases. Some, such as the common cold or the stomach flu, are minor and go away on their own within a few days. Others, however, are more serious.
Unlike bacterial infections, viral diseases don’t respond to antibiotics. Instead, treatment usually focuses on treating symptoms and supporting the immune system with plenty of rest and hydration. This in orthodox medicine.
But in Islamic and natural medicine, we treat bacteria, viruses, and other pathogens by putting their existence moderate in the body as well as treating the infections they caused by boosting immunity to allow the body fight the poisonous compositions.
All viruses contain nucleic acid, either DNA or RNA (but not both). Most viruses that have been studied have a diameter between 20 and 300 nanometres.
A nanometer is one-billionth of a meter. A meter is about 39 inches long. A billion is a thousand times bigger than a million. When you divide a meter into one billion pieces, you get a nanometer. Well, that is very small. This informed how small a virus is.
Different viruses attack certain cells in your body (based on the acidity and alkalinity), such as your liver, respiratory system, or blood based on their nucleic acid (DNAorRNA).
DNA and RNA perform different functions in humans.
DNA contains the sugar deoxyribose, while RNA contains the sugar ribose.
DNA is a double-stranded molecule, while RNA is a single-stranded molecule.
DNA is stable under alkaline conditions, while RNA is not stable.
Viral diseases are classified based on the DNA and RNA of the viruses that cause them.
RNA viral diseases
Notable human diseases caused by RNA viruses include:
- Covid 19. Caused by corona virus
- Ebola. Caused by Ebolavirus.
- Measles. Caused by infection with the rubeola virus.
- Polio. Caused by the poliovirus.
- AIDS. Caused by HIV-1 and HIV-2
- Common cold.
DNA viral diseases
Notable human diseases caused by DNA viruses include:
- Smallpox. Caused by the variola virus.
- Chickenpox. Caused by the initial infection with varicella zoster virus (VZV).
- Herpes. Caused by the herpes simplex virus (HSV).
Mostly, RNA viral diseases are more virulent and harder to cure than DNA viral diseases because the molecular biology of RNA is simple. Also, the fact that RNA is not stable in alkaline condition informed their easy ways of treatment.
No wonder, the orthodox doctors refer to these range of disease conditions as incurable.
In naturopathy, we cure diseases (both symptomatic and asymptomatic), as we also cure the person carrying the disease as not to develop such again through the treatment of the cause of the disease.
There is nothing like no cure in Islamic and natural medicine.
