An Integrative Approach to Prevention and Treatment of COVID 19 by Holistic Primary Care of Brevard

With the start of a new school year in full swing and families returning to chaotic schedules, the uncertainty of when the COVID pandemic will end is unsettling. How will the Delta variant affect school, work, and every aspect of our everyday lives? School quarantines and preventive measures have returned; unfortunately, there is no clear understanding of when normal life will resume.

As a Holistic Primary Care Provider, I regularly hear from patients, “What more can I do?”.  Holistic Care is Wellness Focused and provides care with a Patient-Centered Approach based on Clinical Observation and Studies. Our clinical approach is designed to achieve optimum health and wellness long term.

In addition to current recommendations such as masks, social distancing, and regular hand washing, what more can be done to mitigate the risk of serious COVID complications? The following is an overview of treatment strategies (Frontline COVID-19 Critical Care Alliance Recommendations):
