Dr. Maria’s COVID-19 Blog #1

Dr. Maria’s blog content is based on the following: personal clinical experiences, educational readings for the last 35 years as a physician, training from past/current professors, and her practice of preventative healthcare using integrative and complementary medicine. Please consult with your primary care physician if you are not a current patient at Aesthetic and Anti-Aging Medicine. The coronavirus situation is very fluid and can change very quickly. Please continue to pay attention to the news and follow CDC Guidelines.

WHAT IS COVID-19 / Coronavirus Disease 2019 / SARS-CoV-2?
It’s a highly contagious and fast-spreading virus that consists of amino acids and causes a self-limiting infection.
The virus is fragile to high temperatures and can be destroyed with detergent and solvents that dissolve fat, like soap. Alcohol of at least 70% is also found to collapse the coronavirus.
High risk population: older adults and those with underlying medical conditions such as hypertension, type 2 diabetes, and immunocompromised individuals.
COMMON SYMPTOMS
Reports of mild to severe symptoms:
  • Fever
  • Tiredness
  • Dry cough
  • Difficulty breathing / Shortness of breath
  • Hives that are unresponsive to anti-histamine medication
  • GI symptoms (Diarrhea, Upset stomach)
  • Loss of smell (Anosmia)
  • Headaches
  • Body aches and pains
  • Joint pains (not as usual)
  • Loss of or difficulties in taste
RECOMMENDED SUPPLEMENTS/TREATMENTS
If you suspect you have the coronavirus disease and are experiencing severe symptoms such as difficulty in breathing, please seek immediate medical care.
The following supplements are my recommendations for preventive care by supporting your immune system:
  • High-dose vitamin C / “C Factor”. Any “C” but my recommendation is for the fat-soluble C that stays in our body longer compared to the regular ascorbic acid, ascorbates, Ester-C or rose hips.
  • “Vit K2 D3 Extended”: supports your immune system and fights coagulation problems when a cytokine storm reaction occurs
  • Vitamin E / “E Gold”
  • “Health Max-30” (colloidal silver)
  • “Pure Body (Extra Strength)”: binds heavy metals and free radicals
Recommendations for a more aggressive approach to keeping your immune system strong:
  • Myer’s Cocktail intravenous therapy with high dose vitamin C
  • High dose hyperbaric ozone treatments
