Coronavirus: Staying Safe with a Natural Approach

Let me state this up front: there is no evidence that any natural medicines will cure the coronavirus. This is a new virus with few complete studies, and there is no research showing that herbs or supplements will prevent or cure this infection. What we do know is that patients with a normal immune system can recover from the coronavirus in as little as three days after the immune system starts fighting the virus. We also know that if you are infected, your risk of complications are increased by any defect in your immune system, whether from cancer, obesity, diabetes, lung disease, kidney disease, chronic infection or any other serious illness. So achieving and maintaining a healthy immune s

You are not powerless in the face of Coronavirus

During this pandemic, it is easy to feel that you have no control over what could happen to you or your loved ones. Daily reports that the virus is spreading despite our best efforts is increasing anxiety and concern. The current “flatten-the-curve” strategy is designed to slow, but not eliminate the spread of the Coronavirus. As a result, researchers like Harvard epidemiologist Marc Lipsitch projects that as much as 70% of the world’s population will be infected with COVID19.

If, as predicted, 70% of

COVID-19. What You Need to Know. Part 1.

The COVID-19 pandemic is an emerging and rapidly evolving situation and information today may be outdated next week.

The information that I will be providing about the Coronovirus is from Dr. Nashan Zhong, MD, PhD who was instrumental in the discovery of SARS-CoV in 2003 and in helping to control the current outbreak of COVID-19 in China since January. This remarkable physician and scientist has been working with researchers at Harva

COVID-19 What you Need to Know. Part 2.

Part 1 went over scientific information about COVID-19 otherwise known as SARS CoV 2, transmission rates and virulence. Part 2 is a continuation of exploring the details behind what has been learned from the physicians and scientists who have been at ground zero in China. Factors Affecting Severity of SARS CoV-2 Contributing factors other than age also contributed to progression of symptoms from mild to severe and critical. The reports from Wuhan revealed that patients with cancer and COPD were the most likely to progress to critical. Treatments and Management Randomized studies are not available as this is a new virus but a few promising trials have been completed in China. Most have used
