COVID-19

This section is directed not at how to avoid catching COVID-19 by using masks, social distancing etc., but at reviewing the measures one can take to reduce the risk of having a serious or life-threatening case of COVID-19 if one catches the illness.

 

This update explores new ideas about who may have an increased risk for severe illness and it identifies supplements that may offset these increased risks. It adds another level of prevention for those who become exposed to the illness or those who find themselves with new onset of symptoms likely to be COVID-19.

 

Who should read this section:

  1. Anyone interested in protecting themselves or their friends and family  against serious COVID-19 illness.
  2. Patients with conditions such as fibromyalgia, irritable bowel disease (IBS), interstitial cystitis or other conditions associated with multi-system symptoms not well diagnosed.
  3. Patients with conditions possibly related to mast cell activation (see below).

Mast Cell Activation Disease (MCAD)

This is a new section that explores conditions associated with activation and dysregulation of mast cells, conditions once thought to be rare but now proposed to affect as many as 1 in 6 people. The increased pain associated with cold weather is related to mast cell activation. Conditions that may be impacted by mast cell activity include COVID-19, migraine headaches, fibromyalgia, connective tissue disorders such as rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and Lupus, asthma and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).  Mast cells have been linked to depression, anxiety and other mental health conditions. They may also be linked to Ehler Danlos Syndrome and interstitial cystitis (IC).

  

Who should read this section:

  1. Chronic pain patients who experience worsening pain with changes in weather, especially cold.
  2. Patients with conditions such as fibromyalgia, irritable bowel disease (IBS), interstitial cystitis or other conditions noted above.
  3. Patients with other conditions associated with multi-system symptoms not well diagnosed.
