COVID-19: How Traditional Chinese Medicine Can Boost Immune Function

How Traditional  Chinese Medicine Can  Boost Immune FunctionAlong with the seasonal flu, this year, we are also all concerned with the newest Coronavirus, COVID-19. Taking precautions is essential. Young children, individuals with weakened immune systems, and adults 65 and over are more susceptible to the dangers of the flu and COVID-19, as their symptoms can quickly exacerbate into pneumonia or other disease states due to the intense lung infections that have been reported by those with the virus. As the immune system becomes weaker, the ability to fight off viruses and bacteria becomes more difficult and problematic. It’s critical to stay healthy and boost the immune system; that’s why along with good hygiene, so many people are also looking into preventative treatment methods.
Each day, we learn new facts, figures, and protocols concerning COVID-19. Recently, we were informed by the FDA that they are investigated specific drugs and running expedited trials to see if they are effective at killing the virus. They are also running plasma testing from the blood of those that have recovered from COVID-19. At this point, we also know that the vaccine will take approximately 12 months to become available. As we navigate through the coronavirus pandemic over the next few months, disinfection and social distancing is the recommended preventative advice, and boosting the immune system is the best line of defense! Healthier individuals are better able to fight the infection and make full recoveries.
Viruses need a host to proliferate and mutate. Once they invade the body, they need the body to continue to live or the virus dies if it does not move into another host. One way that we as hosts to viruses can either ward it off, or fight it aggressively is through a bolstered immune system. COVID-19 is an RNA virus, which is not DNA, but rather encoded RNA. DNA viruses have limited mutation capabilities, while RNA is an unstable molecule that can replicate and mutate quickly depending on their need to survive, and they spread hastily as well. Eastern herbal medications impedes these actions in RNA viruses and creates a biological environment that inhibits the replication of the virus. Holistic and eastern medicinal interventions focus on building the body’s immune response and natural bodily actions in fighting disease and infection.
Eastern medicine can decrease the intensity of the Covid-19 as well as other viruses and flu symptoms, and can significantly reduce the intensity, duration and length of the symptoms. The best defense is a strong offense in strengthening the immune system and how Eastern medical practices are experts in this area of boosting the immune system and fighting viral infections.

Traditional Chinese Medicine
In Traditional Chinese Medicine different pathways and Qi are tapped into via specific herbs, remedies and treatments. This is the key to maintaining and increasing one’s immune system.
A large part of the immune system is encompassed in the Wei Qi. It creates a protective barrier for our bodies. Ying Qi is controlled by the food and nutrients we feed our bodies; this also plays a large role in immune function, and Yuan Qi is energy developed from the kidneys that activates circulation and nutrient-dense, oxygenated blood flow. These three areas of Qi are critical to helping individuals fight viral and bacterial infections.
