Report From the Frontlines of COVID-19, Part 1
July 2, 2020
Dr. Jaime Salas-Rushford reports from the frontlines of COVID-19 treatment at one of New York’s hardest-hit hospitals. He’s an integrative physician who serves as Medical Director of FITbodymd Medicine in Puerto Rico, but responded to the call to treat patients during the height of the coronavirus pandemic in New York City. He reflects on the lessons learned: Ventilators are overused; hydroxychloroquine seems to have helped; patients with COVID-19 need basic inexpensive supportive care, administered promptly; vitamin C and zinc were liberally used in the hospital. He also notes that patients who take supplements regularly seemed to fare better. As the author of "Fight Colds, Flu and Other Infections with AHCC," he’s convinced of its efficacy in supporting immunity. Dr. Salas-Rushford claims “COVID-19 was an eye-opener” and we need to learn from it to cultivate resilience to weather future challenges. He says the pandemic has revealed the vulnerabilities of our health care system, which needs more emphasis on old-fashioned primary care, and a restoration of the doctor-patient relationship. Dr. Salas-Rushford is currently advising businesses in New York City on how to safely reopen; he’s concerned that excessive restrictions will irrevocably damage the economy and affect the livelihoods of Americans, with devastating effects on their mental and physical well-being.

Natural Approaches for Vision and Eye Problems, Part 1
June 23, 2020
Dr. Rudrani Banik, integrative ophthalmologist, dishes on a variety of subjects related to eye health. Are eye shields necessary for personal protection against the coronavirus? What’s the effect of all that extra screen time we’re experiencing due to lockdown? In addition to “blue-blocker” eyewear, can nutritional supplementation confer resistance against eye stress caused by device overuse? Will limiting kids’ outdoor time spawn a generation of glasses wearers? Dr. Banik shares how her own experience with migraines led her to begin to investigate natural approaches for eye problems. She is currently conducting research on the use of mastic gum extract in the treatment of optic nerve strokes, and gene replacement therapy for a rare form of hereditary blindness. In the wake of civil disturbances, Dr. Banik reports on advocacy by the American Academy of Ophthalmology to minimize the use of dangerous crowd control measures like rubber bullets. Stem cells are showing promise for restoring vision, but Dr. Banik suggests caution on their indiscriminate use. She previews her upcoming book, "The Macular Degeneration Prevention Protocol."
