COVID-19 is not the flu.  When folks get ill with COVID-19, it can last a lot longer and adverse effects can linger for months or even years. If folks get ill enough and end up on a ventilator in the ICU, this experience can last a lot longer with more severe issues in and out of the hospital. Someone with COVID can transmit the illness, even if they don’t know they have it, for much longer than the flu. The flu mostly damages the lungs while COVID-19 can travel through the blood causing issues in the gut, kidneys, brain and even the vestibular system which keeps us centered in mind, body and space.

In this show you will learn:

  • Why fever may not be the best indicator of COVID in folks over 70 with COVID.
  • What frontline docs especially worry about.
  • How COVID is a blood-clotting illness and which blood type is more prone to blood clots.
  • What you can do at home to naturally vs. pharmaceutically, ward off excess “fibrinogen” a substance that can boost the risk of blood clots.
  • What natural products are helpful and at what dosages.
  • Why you should wear a mask.
  • Why some folks don’t believe in COVID as a viral reality.

And so much more like the peer-review citation of the peer review nurse’s article illustrating all the studies that support mask protection.
