I am honored to have contributed to this important publication on interventions for all four potential phases of COVID-19 – prevention, infection, inflammation and recovery.
In this paper, intended for healthcare professionals, we address:
- Five key support targets: foundation, Natural Killer cell support, T Helper Type 1 cell support, Anti-inflammatory Support, Anti-Oxidant Support
- Why underlying inflammation contributes to increased disease risk and what to do about it
- Immunosenescence in older age and comorbidities
- Drug-nutrient interactions
Releasing soon through the Integrative Medicine Journal, it is available now as a preprint here: https://athmjournal.com/covid19/wp-content/uploads/sites/4/2020/05/imcj-19-08.pdf
