Quenching the cytokine storm. In part, it might be our own immune system – made dysfunctional, imbalanced in its hyper response to certain viruses (COVID19, influenza) – that needs interruption.
Two key interventions are topping my list:
- Omega 3 fatty acids for their ability to generate specialized pro-resolving lipid mediators (SPMs). Or, since some of us who are vulnerable to COVID19, like diabetics, don’t make SPMs efficiently, take SPMs directly.
- Palmitoylethanolamide (PEA): 600mg daily for prevention; increase to 600mg tid at first sign.
