In the wake of the largest study of its kind that demonstrates that obesity is the single biggest factor that lands people with Covid-19 in the hospital, we discuss the role that “metabolic fitness” plays in resistance to the coronavirus with Dr. Loren Marks, Functional Medicine chiropractor in New York City.

What’s the role of the microbiome in maintaining immune health? How does the “gut/lung axis” influence resistance to respiratory pathogens? What are some of the genetic determinants of susceptibility to Covid-19? Click HERE for part 2.
