COVID Quick Guide

Covid quick guide

We are deeply appreciative of the work of physicians, nurses, hospitals, and other first responders during the coronavirus pandemic for patients who are needing hospital care.


But what do you do if you are at home and you want to do whatever you can to prevent illness, or help yourself get stronger and healthier if you are not feeling well?


In the event that you are seeking some at-home care for yourself or a loved one so that you hopefully will never need to go to the hospital, here are some ideas for specific things you can start doing today to feel empowered to:

  1. Help your body be strong and resilient to help prevent COVID-19, and

  2. Help your body recover if you may have COVID-19, you are not ill enough to require hospital care, and you want some guidelines as to what to do at home to help your lungs and your body heal.

What to do to supercharge yourself against COVID-19

Until a successful vaccine is discovered, this is a useful guideline from top functional medicine physician Elena Klimenko, M.D., on how to help you cope at home if you have tested positive for COVID-19 or if you are experiencing symptoms but have not been able to get tested yet (e.g., sleep, manage stress, fluids, nourishing foods, and vitamins such as Vitamin C, zinc, and more).

Easy, Powerful Mind and Body Tools to Start Strengthening your Immune System Today

  • Thymus Thump:  Use your fist to thump the thymus point, which is in the middle of the chest. You may also use your fingers to firmly tap or massage the chest. Do it every day for 20-30 seconds, up to several times daily if you feel you may be getting sick. Thumping or firmly tapping the thymus stimulates special illness-fighting cells that help protect us from viruses and bacteria. So simple anyone can do it!
