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.

The Role “Metabolic Fitness” Plays In Resistance to the Coronavirus, Part 1
April 21, 2020
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. Dr. Marks makes the case for the protective effects of certain nutrients: vitamins A, C, D, zinc and n-acetyl cysteine. Is there a potential for excessive immune stimulation resulting in cytokine storm? What’s Dr. Marks doing personally to maintain fitness during the lockdown? 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.
