Infectious means easily spread. Many sicknesses are called Infectious. And we blame bacteria and viruses for it! 😉 🙂
In reality, you will be afflicted only when your body is not in balanced state. Read this view.
Skimboarding or Surfboarding is an interesting board-sports for those who live near sea.
Board is used to glide across the water’s surface to meet an incoming, breaking wave, and ride it back to shore. Never done it but must be thrilling and mind bending. To balance the self, we have only one alternative, to balance self as per pattern of the wave. We can not control the wave.
Our environment is ocean of bacteria and viruses. Mother nature does not like vaccum. Place your hand anywhere and you will be in contact with millions and billions bacteria and viruses. Infection is a vacuum filling activity by mother nature. Like a giant wave to face when you are doing Skimboarding. You cannot anyway kill all the bacteria like you cannot change the pattern of the wave. One wave will go and another will come (Modern medicine calls it resistant bacteria 🙂 ). Similarly, antibiotics will wipe out one set of microbes and another will take the place.
Like a Skimboarders @ sea, we must learn to balance self in this sea of bacteria. That is the essence of immunity. Killing bacteria is short-sighted solution. Those who cannot envision ocean can only try to control and bend wave. 🙂 My two years old son do it often 😉
