In two days, the number of cases dropped from 1,044 to 28 as of June 20th. They did rise sharply as more kits became widely available, and have since come down. AZDHS.gov

Most are aware of the common symptoms of Covid-19, such as sore throat, dry cough, headache, exhaustion, loss of smell/touch, and feeling of chest tightness. There can be unusual neuroligical symptoms such as nightmares. The complications of Covid-19 can be severe and include shortness of breath and blood clots. The cytokine inflammatory cycle, if not controlled quickly can cause life threatening organ failure. It is important to know the risk factors for developing this inflammatory cycle which includes comorbities and epigenetic factors. The comorbidities are now well known to be diabetes, heart disease, autoimmune conditions, cancer, and obesity.
The epigeneitc factors are heavily dependant on the individual’s diet, supplements, and general level of inflammation. It also includes how well the person’s blood clots or how thick the blood is due to lifestyle and supplements.
The Immune System and Covid-19
It is imperative first and foremost to decrease any comorbidities such as chronic inflammation, diabetes, heart disease and autoimmune conditions. While these are managed by conventional medicine with anti-inflammatories, pain medications, steroids, blood pressure medications and statins..the management of such conditions does nothing to decrease your risk for getting Covid-19, and the developing life threatening complications of Covid-19.
Now more than ever it is imperative that patients of chronic disease start looking outside of conventional medicine and get educated on reversing their chronic condition with diet, supplements, exercise, sleep and stress management. By reversing your chronic condition, your quality of life and length of life will be dramatically improved. You will feel better, be more productive, lose weight, have more energy, sleep better, and experience less pain. Although no one in government is bringing up immune system health as playing a role in this pandamic, your immune system is powerful and adaptive. Even when a vaccine is developed it will lack the accuracy that your own immune system has due to its ability to develop new antibodies to ever changing strains.
We are conducting individualized immune system consults to check your level of risk and address the comorbidities and epigenetic factors for each patient. Recommendations will be made based on your personal medical history and lifestyle. Our normal consult price of $95 has been reduced to $60 to make it more affordable during this pandamic.
