6 Natural Remedies for COVID-19 Prevention: An Evidence Review 2022

Do diet, supplements and exercise help with COVID-19? Any evidence? To understand the answers, please continue reading. We have covered and done a review on supplements for COVID-19 treatment . In this article, we will cover and do a review on supplements for COVID-19 'prevention' instead. The important key takeaway is that you should never attempt to self medicate without the guidance of a licensed medical provider. If you are not a medical doctor, you are likely to find the information below overwhelming. The aim of this article is to empower you with a better understanding of the options available and to discuss the options with your medical doctor as an informed patient. Please check this page regularly for updates – new natural alternatives may be added and/or dose changes to existing alternatives may be made as further scientific studies emerge.

Long Covid patients, in search of treatment, turn to private company

A full two years into the coronavirus pandemic,  long-haul Covid patients   remain sick and in desperate search of answers. They've lost jobs. They've lost their sense of self. Many say they have lost faith in the medical community. Despite multiple studies, the launch of dozens of specialized long Covid clinics and  $1.15 billion in federal funding  for the National Institutes of Health to study the condition, there remains a dearth of proven treatments for people who are suffering from lingering illness after their infection.  "There is no one right answer for many of our patients," said Dr. Ben Abramoff, director of the Post-COVID Assessment and Recovery Clinic at Penn Medicine, which has seen more than 1,100 long Covid patients. Compounding the problem is a lack of consensus on how to define long Covid, according to a commentary published Tuesday in the  Annals of Internal Medicine  from researchers at UCLA Health and the David Geffen School of Medicine in Los Ang

Low Dose Naltrexone for Long COVID 2022

A drug that’s helping millions of people with opioid or alcohol dependence is also being used to treat those suffering symptoms of   long COVID . Naltrexone has been around since 1984 to treat opioid or alcohol addiction. Given in high doses of 50-milligram tablets or a 380-milligram intramuscular injection, the drug works by binding to opioid receptors in the brain to block the effects—especially the urges and cravings to use—of opioids and alcohol. Naltrexone has also been found to treat other disorders when administered in low doses. It is used off-label to treat obesity, nerve pain, anxiety, and autoimmune disorders. “I found it very effective in my patients with rheumatoid arthritis, with Crohn’s disease, with other autoimmune processes, and chronic fatigue syndrome,” Dr. Keith Berkowitz, an internist, told The Epoch Times. Naltrexone is given at doses of 0.5 to 4.5 milligram for patients with long COVID, along with other repurposed medications like prednisone, ivermectin, and vit

Fact Check: Melatonin, aspirin, vitamins, zinc and quercetin can prevent or treat COVID-19?

The claim: Melatonin, aspirin, vitamins, zinc and quercetin can prevent or treat COVID-19? Since the early stages of the pandemic, people have claimed supplements like quercetin, zinc, vitamin D and melatonin can help treat and prevent COVID-19. But public health organizations and experts say there is little evidence these products are effective at treating or preventing COVID-19? Most of the studies on supplements are small and are of low quality? We shall wait for bigger and better quality evidence before we can make formal recommendations? Science requires questioning and testing. Trusting science without questioning is not science. The world does not exist in a 'black or white' manner and most of the time, things do fall into the 'gray' area. Medical science is dynamic and evidence development is constantly in a continuous work-in-progress mode. If a supplement has been shown to work in a small study, would you wait for a bigger study or should you just take it afte
