Want to Help Your Body Fight Disease?
Here we go again. Covid 19 cases are getting more numerous. But as research shows, underlying diseases that you might not be aware you have, such as cardiac or liver, kidney, pancreatic or lung cancer could cause you to have a very poor outcome when exposed to Covid 19. Therefore, Covid can be so dangerous to some but not others! It is not how you feel, but your true state of health that makes the difference in surviving Covid.
“Covid can be dangerous to some but not others!”
It is established that people that get extremely sick and die from Covid have comorbidities. They were already sick and the Covid pushed them over the edge. They would likely have survived except their system was too weak when they got Covid. There are people with ‘Hidden conditions’ or maybe several minor problems that when combined can give an awfully bad outcome when exposed to Covid. No one who is really healthy dies from Covid.
Blood levels of Vit D and other specific lab tests are useful predictors of health status and how well you will fight off infectious diseases like COVID-19.
Stop guessing, get tested!
I am an expert in neurology and nutrition and can guide you in staying healthy and minimizing your risks of getting sick from Covid or even the flu. When I look at blood work there are healthy ranges and clinical ranges. Clinical ranges are broader numbers because it is a combination of healthy and sick people. The worse the clinical number, the higher the comorbidity risk. Example, a medical doctor will tell you a Vitamin D level of 30 is OK. I am going to tell you a level of 50 to 70 is healthy. Who wants to just be OK?
I would like to share with you a recent study in Denmark published in the Annals of Internal Medicine a few weeks ago. The study was completed on 4,800 people in Denmark regarding wearing or not wearing a mask. Death rates in April 2020 were 6%. Death rates in October 2020 were 2% despite a greater number of positive tests.
- The death rate of those wearing a mask was 1.8%.
- The death rate of those not wearing a mask was 2.1%.
The difference was not statistically relevant. My thoughts are it is not the mask, but the status of the immune system behind the mask, as I discussed above.
