Given that there is currently no cure for CoVid-19 the main course of action should one become infected is to alleviate the symptoms and help the body fight back. I am not a doctor so all of this should be considered hypothetical and not any sort of suggestion or advice. That being said, it is my firm belief that we should be doing everything we can to strengthen our immune systems as much as possible. In my search for ways of achieving this (on Pubmed) I came across the following article and subsequently stumbled down the Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) rabbit hole.
There is a great deal of research on TCM, and although some seem to have a propaganda-like flavor and other a more bitter voodoo flavor, some present results that seem worthy of investigation. Some additional information that I found for the 6 herbs mentioned in the article can be found in the following links.
Now where in the world does one go to obtain these funny sounding herbs? Turns out that there is a wholesale distributor a couple blocks away from where I currently live. Note: I live in Elmhurst, Queens, which is the second largest 'Chinatown' in Queens as per Wikipedia. I decided that I had to walk over and check it out.
I was greeted by an abundance of novel smells and foreign-to-me fragrances immediately upon walking inside. I was able to find all of the items on my list with the help of persistence and someone in my family who is familiar with their offerings.
to be continued.
