“It’s essential that natural approaches for patients with SARS-Cov2 do two things: support efficient anti-viral immune surveillance and also quiet inflammation, so there’s enough room for the inherently inflammatory process of killing pathogens to take place without moving the patient too close to the threshold of ARDS manifestation.” – Dr. Yanuck
COVID-19 solutions are an important and evolving conversation amongst clinicians. We know that interventions are speculative at best, since it will take time for more definitive research to be completed and published. However, our existing understanding of the inner workings of the immune system, plus early data from outbreak areas gives us clues as to what we might be thinking about. Dietary, nutraceutical, and lifestyle interventions, as discussed here, are considered very safe and therefore low-risk options.
Teach-Ins continue to be a favorite component of our educational programs for clinicians. These are often unscripted (and unpolished!), open dialogues where participants get to engage live with experts in their field. We find this the most effective way to allow for active community engagement and frank, real-world discussions.
In this Teach-In, Dr. Yanuck shares his deep knowledge of immune function and how he is thinking through addressing the risks of COVID-19 with his patients.
