what is the biological soul virus imageCOVID-19 and the ongoing coronavirus pandemic have forced us to think about disease and how to protect ourselves from it. How arbitrary it seems that one person can succumb to a virus while another does not. This concept has brought immunology to the forefront and has created an immense uptick in interest in the field and to start a discussion on how we can improve our immunity to be strong. This is not only important in our fight against COVID, and other viruses, but ultimately to become immunity strong for the purpose of achieving a better quality and longevity of life.

Immunologist and rheumatologist, Dr. Robert G. Lahita (Dr. Bob) says that there is a biological force within the body that wants you to live to old age. While conventionally this force is known in medicine as the immune system, Dr. Bob calls it: “The Biological Soul.”

The Biological Soul is designed to protect you and allow you to live a healthy life. This force is tangible, measurable, lives within the physical body and determines our age and wellbeing through life. It is physical and complex and, in many ways, spiritual. It is affected by life’s stresses, by diets, and by overall health and though not immortal; it both shapes your life and your life shapes it.

The Biological Soul is our body and our immune systems working on a cellular level protecting us and making our lives long and healthy. Our immune systems as part of the Biological Soul are incredibly complex biological forces that determine our wellbeing. These forces act as protectors and are powerful determinants of our biological and physiological good health. They are always at work without our knowing or thinking about them, and they affect how we eat, sleep, work, breathe, and look., Immunity has in large part been predetermined by biological forces. Immune function, the great protector, what you are born with, plus the knowledge you attain throughout life about healthy living will inspire you about ways to make positive changes that can prevent illness and extend longevity.

Our immune systems are incredibly strong and complex biological forces that determine our wellbeing. It practically impacts practically every organ in our body and coupled with diet, exercise and a cleaner lifestyle can enhance your health and extend longevity. According to philosophers, the human soul is dualistic: there is a physical soul and a spiritual soul that integrate to form the foundation of a long life. The same is true of our biological soul, the root of our immune system. The physical (the tangible and measurable) side of this immune system integrates our organs and manifests itself through the biology of the body. It is in our circulatory functions and beating hearts, the manifestations of sex and libido, the functions of the brain, and most importantly, our immunity.

Dr. Bob writes about the biological soul, as part of the immune system’s front lines of the body’s defenses against disease. Through our lifestyle we can encourage the biological soul to recognize and eliminate threats and enhance immunity. Always at work without our knowing it, our immune system impacts how we eat, sleep, work, breathe, and look.

We can all agree that we strive to make our lives long and healthy. Integrating the spiritual, scientific, and emotional factors that enlighten immune system function and harnessing the biological soul as the great protector is a worthy ally in the quest for longevity.

Dr. Robert Lahita writes about this in his new book, “IMMUNITY STRONG: Boost Your Natural Healing Power and Live to 100”. He coined a term that encapsulates this concept called the “biological soul”. Dr. Bob explains that this is the root of our immune system, a great protector responsible for our longevity.

Doctor Lahita is Clinical Professor of Medicine at Rutgers New Jersey Medical School, a Professor at Hackensack Meridian School of Medicine and the Director of the Institute for Autoimmune and Rheumatic Disease St. Joseph's Healthcare System. He is a fellow of the American College of Physicians, a Master of the American College of Rheumatology, and Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians. Dr. Lahita is the author of more than 16 books and 150 scientific publications in the field of autoimmunity.
