Corona Virus prevention methods with TCM
COVID-19 - Damp plage
Treat with herbs that clear damp
San Ren Tang
Huo Po Xia Ling Tang
Hou Xiang Zheng Qi
+ small dose of Ba Shao to relax muscles and facia
Heat (fever) go away once damp is cleared because there is no longer a suitable host
Ginger and garlic too cooking (not raw)
Damp forming foods
Sauna 3-4 times per week
Exercise to the point of thirst and sweat
Huan Qi (astragalus) or Ren Shen (ginseng) Qi boosting herbs can aid linger pathogens in the body and act as a steroid to them. They can also prevent healthy water metabolism in a constitutionally damp body.
Herbs that are too heat-clearing like Yin Qiao San (anti-inflammatory or antiviral) can cause dysbiosis and cold and damp in the gut forming a condition called “hidden ice” we want to aromatically transform dampness instead.
Herbs such as Ma Huang this can cause the condition to turn more hot and dry
