COVID is a hot and controversial topic. Our job here is simple to cite the current research and provide information for patients to make informed decisions. We’re not going to debate anyone about COVID, Chinese labs, vaccinations or treatments; we just are not knowledgeable enough. One anchoring tenet we would suggest however, is to get as healthy as you can. Improving your health will raise your natural mmunity and make you more resistant to all viruses, bacterial and disease. It won’t guarantee a specific outcome, but it might prevent a problem or at least possibly minimize your symptoms.
