Posted by on Apr 14, 2020 in Dr. Mercola | Comments Off on Coronavirus — What Are the Best Alternatives for Self-Care?

In the meantime, doctors and other practitioners are, to a large extent, improvising. They are employing best-care practices for the very sick in hospital and providing best-guess advice for those with mild symptoms who are self-isolating, and for those who have no symptoms and would like to keep it that way. It’s important to remember that there are...

Either way, it’s tangential to what you need to do now to protect yourself and your family from here on out. At...

Posted by on Apr 13, 2020 in Dr. Mercola | Comments Off on Want to Defeat Coronavirus? Address Diabetes and Hypertension

While the World Health Organization has put the death rate from novel coronavirus, COVID-19, at 3.4%,1 a study in Nature Medicine put it much lower, at 1.4%.2 The fact is, with many cases going unreported and untested, mild and asymptomatic cases may not be included in official COVID-19 death rate figures, which could skew the death rate significantly, making it appear higher than it actually is. In Italy, however — the “new” epicenter for COVID-19 — the number of deaths reportedly overtook those in China by mid- to...

Posted by on Apr 13, 2020 in Dr. Mercola | Comments Off on Niacin Study Shows Promise to Slow Abnormal Growth
