Just when we were starting to get a glimpse of relief, the delta variant of COVID-19 came to unravel it all.
We are still learning about the implications of COVID-19 and how we can utilize different medicines to treat it.
If you have any questions about our virus-related protocols, don’t hesitate to call to book an appointment. Below are some interesting remedies we have been researching.
• Melatonin: Although melatonin does not have virucidal capacity per se, supplemental melatonin interceded favorably, eradicating the pathogenicity of highly deadly viruses, as widely documented by numerous reports of different casuistry, among which the prevention of the hemorrhagic shock syndrome from Ebola virus infection is especially encouraging.
"In this issue, taking into account the pharmacological profile of melatonin, which highlights formidable homeostatic abilities to moderate inflammation, mitigate redox stress, and buffer immune response, this indoleamine should occupy a preferential place among the molecules to be tested with regards to slowing down the hyper-inflammation of COVID-19 patients and increasing the success of their clinical management."
• An interesting study on how Thiamine may help coronavirus patients. "Thiamine use as adjunctive therapy may have potential survival benefits in critically ill patients with COVID-19." Additionally, it was associated with a lower incidence of thrombosis. Thiamine has a good safety profile, and is readily available at low cost; therefore, it can be considered as a part of COVID-19 critically ill patients’ therapeutic management protocols. Further interventional studies are required to confirm our finding
• It’s no surprise the Earth provides amazing resources for our body to heal. Throughout history, plant medicines have been shown to help.
"Upon arrival at new continents, colonists encountered many indigenous medicinal plants, which they then introduced back to Europe and other parts of the old world through trade. For instance, the miraculous antimalarial property of Cinchona tree bark was rediscovered by Spanish settlers in Peru in the mid-17th century. In the following years, Cinchona tree bark quickly became a highly prized medicine and was traded globally. Driven by curiosity and the need to deter species adulteration in the medicinal plant trade, the field of plant systematics flourished. This culminated in the publication of Species Plantarum by Carl Linnaeus in 1753, which established the foundation of plant taxonomy as we know it today."
