Holistic methods such as acupuncture are one of the many holistic methods people have used to help their bodies fight COVID-19. It’s said that people get sick or cannot fight diseases because their immune systems have been compromised. Chah Acupuncture uses various holistic methods to treat these imbalances and buffer people’s immune systems to keep them healthy.
The treatment must counter the virus that is attacking and compromising an individual's immune system. Below we will discuss some of those treatments Dr. Chah’s clinic supports.
Sleep and Covid19
It is important to make sure you have ample time to sleep because with the proper amount of sleep the immune system can fight infections that cause diseases. If you get proper sleep your immune system is in a position to fight incoming viruses and other disease-causing mechanisms. Sleep also supports the immune system which helps it to bring current viruses to a healthy outcome. Sleep deprivation will weaken the immune system and make the body more vulnerable to Covid-19.
Vitamins and COVID19
Two studies have suggested that people have a higher risk of contracting Covid-19 due to Vitamin D deficiencies. It was suggested that some people may have greater protection against testing positive for Covid-19 with higher than normal levels of vitamin D in their systems.
Another study found that more than 80% of people who had Covid 19 tested for a Vit D deficiency so there may be a correlation between Vit D deficiency and getting the Covid virus. Yet another study found that those with Vit D deficiency had a 7.2 % greater risk of testing positive for Covid 19. These studies were observable studies only and the proper levels for Vit D have not been determined to safely say that a person would not contract Covid 19.
Realistically, Zinc may have antiviral abilities that help cells fight viral infections. Zinc may improve cell immune function by stopping Covid 19 to spread.
Furthermore, a study conducted in Spain, found patients with Covid 19 were less likely to die from Covid 19 who had higher levels of Zinc in their bloodstream. This may mean that Zinc may slow down the progression of Covid 19 to the point that it will not kill patients. Overall Zinc does improve immune system function and even though it hasn’t been proven that Zinc will help patients not to contract Covid 19 it cannot hurt to take Zinc supplements.
Vitamin C does help immune function and there are doctors in Italy and China who are using IV vitamin C trials on patients suffering from Covid-19. The results have not been finalized to determine if Vitamin C will help the immune system to fight Covid-19 or not.
