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.

The Genetics of COVID-19, Part 1
April 30, 2020
There are many factors that determine who’s more prone to hospitalization or death from coronavirus infection. But among them—and now subject to intense research—are individual genetic predispositions. Certain genes can make you more susceptible to an inflammatory cascade—cytokine storm—that presages a bad outcome in COVID-19. Integrative physician Dr. Sharon Hausman-Cohen, MD, is co-founder of IntellxxDNA, a service that helps health professionals interpret their patients’ genetic profiles. She sheds light on how variations in gene expression can influence pathways integral to viral infection. These analyses, based on saliva samples, can yield critical insights about deployment of various nutraceutical treatments—including elderberry, andrographis, astragalus, vitamins A, C, and D, zinc, fish oil and specific pro-resolving mediators (SPMs), quercetin, melatonin, EGCG, and curcumin.
