Kingston, Pennsylvania – July 24, 2020 – As the COVID-19 Pandemic wreaks havoc around the Globe, medical science scrambles to develop a Vaccine. One can take action now to improve your chances, while waiting for the Pharmaceutical Industry to provide effective treatment or a vaccine. That could take another 2 years, although a Vaccine may be available in 6-12 months, but its side-effects will be an unknown.
David A Shaller MD, FACR, has an approach to help people improve their immune system and have a greater chance at avoiding complications of COVID-19 infection. His new book, “COVID-19 – Practical Advice From an Independent Thinking Physician” shows a way forward. Make no mistake about it, this book is not founded on mere conjecture, but on scientific facts.
The US Copyright Office awarded a copyright. The Basis of Claim “text, List two available mediation options for COVID-19.”
In his book, Dr. Shaller recommends:
- Clean / Clear the nasal passages + Gargle with salt water.
- Improve Innate Immunity.
The doctor explains, “The Novel Coronavirus, known as SARS-CoV-2 and the associated disease process. COVID-19 is a respiratory virus, which enters through the nasal cavity / nasopharynx. A high nasal/nasopharyngeal viral load has been associated with increased symptoms and higher severity of disease. What if you could ‘wash away’ the offending virus by rinsing (lavage is the medical term) the area with salt water (saline) or at least decrease the viral load?”
The US Government has initiated a study to find out. The thinking is that by decreasing the viral load, you decrease your odds of getting extremely ill.
Dr. Shaller commented, “I find merit in removing and / or decreasing the viral load at its’ source and reservoir in the nasal cavity and throat. An observation was made regarding the low level of COVID-19 cases and deaths in Thailand. It is known that 80% of the population practice ‘nasal irrigation’ as a routine personal hygiene habit using Neti Pots. If I were at high risk for known exposure, tested positive, or developed COVID-19, I would perform nasal lavage and gargle with salt water.”
Readers will note that Dr. Shaller has recommendations to maintain an Effective Immune System:
• Restful Sleep
• Mediterranean Diet
• Moderate Exercise
• Optimize therapy for underlying medical condition(s).
He also takes a bold approach in personally supporting supplemental vitamins, specifically:
- Daily Multivitamin
- Vitamin C 250 mg daily, increase dose gradually, and take 2 or 3 times daily.
- Zinc 60 mg daily
- Vitamin D3, 1000 to 2000 IU daily.
Readers will appreciate the way the author explains his plan of action in detail.
