Not every person who gets COVID-19 will need a ventilator, but many will. And we also have to keep in mind that it’s not just COVID-19 patients who need ventilators to survive.
We cannot control our age or genetic predispositions to certain health issues, but we can certainly make an effort to control our weight and maintain a strong immune system. This goes far beyond the number on the scale. It includes doing our part to stay active and eat healthily. It involves being proactive about our health and well being and consulting our doctors when necessary.
Air pollution may exacerbate respiratory disease (including asthma or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)). And then having these conditions makes a person more vulnerable when it comes to fighting lung infections such as pneumonia (a potentially dangerous complication of COVID-19).
There are several stories such as these. So many black Americans with underlying health conditions are dying due to complications from COVID-19.
1 in 3 U.S. adults has high blood pressure or hypertension. This means over 100 million people in this country have high blood pressure! Hypertension has been on our radar recently because it is one of the comorbidities of the coronavirus. It weakens the immune system and may make us more susceptible to the complications caused by viruses.
Although a glass of wine with dinner or the occasional cocktail is not necessarily bad for most people, if you are someone who drinks heavily and regularly might I strongly suggest you consider changing this habit.
We have to eat and buy groceries. There is no getting around that. But if we can protect ourselves, we may be able to protect others by not contracting COVID-19 and avoid passing it to other people and not continue to overwhelm the incredibly stressed healthcare system right now.
One of the most difficult and painful aspects of the current SARS-CoV-2 (coronavirus or COVID-19) pandemic is having to accept that individually as well as a society, we could have done so much more to reduce the impact of this virus. Admittedly, our lifestyles have contributed to the underlying health conditions that greatly increase the risk of developing complications or even dying from this virus.
I think we can all agree that as much as we want to stay informed on the latest news regarding COVID-19, it’s nice to have a break for the sake of our mental health.
Because we are so immersed in this current crisis, I think many of us are forgetting that there are many other infectious diseases out there that are currently a problem and could potentially be an even bigger problem in the future if we are not proactive. In my opinion, this especially holds true for bacterial infections that are showing signs of being resistant to antibiotics. And CBD may help fight these infections!
To put into perspective what a key nutrient vitamin C is, in New York, one of the epicenters of the coronavirus in the United States, in some hospitals “seriously sick” coronavirus patients are being given “massive doses of vitamin C,” according to one report. A doctor mentioned in the report says that COVID-19 patients in intensive care get 1,500 milligrams of intravenous vitamin C.This dose is 16 times higher than the National Institute of Health’s daily recommended dietary allowance of vitamin C. “The patients who received vitamin C did significantly better than those who did not get vitamin C,” said the doctor.
Every day, there seems to be new developments and a wealth of new information about the novel coronavirus. You may have heard that in some cases, antimalarial drugs are being used to treat COVID-19 patients. A 52-year-old man in Florida named Rio Giardinieri said that one of these drugs, called hydroxychloroquine, saved his life.
