Can Chinese Medicine Treat and Prevent Covid19?

Reports indicate that Chinese medicine and herbs helped China fight, prevent and treat Covid19. As a result, some say there has been a demand for Chinese herbs across the United States leading to herb shortages. An herb shortage? Didn’t see that coming.

According to the National Institute of Health (NIH), “Traditional Chinese Medicine is effective in preventing Covid19.” In fact, they say, medical staff can prevent iatrogenic infection (one example of this is infections caught while treating patients), by taking a decoction made based on the principles of TCM.

You can’t help but wonder why the United States isn’t investing in Chinese medicines and herbs or at least, working collaboratively with Chinese medicine practitioners in hospitals.

Whatever the case, I share this information and the following video with you because I think anything that could help us find good health or stay healthy is worth looking into. Please share your thoughts in the comments.
