Breathe Deep

When taking a deep breath in, it is a common mistake that people lift their shoulders and expand their chest to do so. This method is not efficient and if done repeatedly would result in feelings of anxiousness especially if you were in a situation where you were finding it difficult to breathe such as with asthma or if you had a lung infection.  The more natural and efficient breathing technique would result in the expansion of your abdomen on inhalation.  This would indicate the diaphragm is lowering to help the expansion of the lungs downward to fill with air. Conversely, the stomach would move back inward when exhaling, and no movement of the shoulders or chest would occur. 

 

There are two techniques that can help you get the air you need without working so hard.  Pursed lips breathing and diaphragmatic (also called belly or abdominal) breathing.  Pursed lips breathing helps you focus, slow your breathing down and stay calm. 

 

Pursed lips breathing should be used during and after....

We are in mid-June, the lockdown restrictions in N.J. are easing, and businesses will be opening with certain modifications to protect against further spreading of Covid-19 in a second wave of infections. 

 

Amid these positive changes, some troubling facts have come to light in the past few weeks about 1. The statistical analysis used to justify the lockdown, 2. The sudden disparaging attack on the drug Hydroxychloroquine and 3. Operation Warp Speed - the rush for a Covid-19 vaccine.

 

  1. Neil Ferguson

You may not know his name but he is the lead scientist at the Imperial College London and it was his team and his computer epidemiological modeling coding that sparked the prediction of millions of deaths that would occur from Covid-19 if a complete lockdown by governments across the globe didn’t occur.  Specifically, he predicted 500,000 deaths in the U.K. and 2.2 million deaths in the U.S.  His coding analysis was withheld for six weeks...

Glutathione. A treatment for Coronavirus?

On March 22nd, a 48-year old Brooklyn woman Josephine Bruzzese woke up with a fever, body aches, dry cough and trouble breathing.  She had lost her ability to smell and taste.  Her family rushed her to NYU Langone Hospital-Brooklyn in Sunset Park.  At the time there were no coronavirus tests available and the hospital sent her home as a suspected case of Covid-19 with an antibiotic azithromycin, and the malaria drug hydroxychloroquine both of which helped, but she still had difficulty breathing.  Luckily, her son James who was in his second year of a 7-year program to get a medical degree thought to call a well-known complementary physician Dr. Richard Horowitz who had treated his sister and asked him for advice.  The advice was for his mother to take a large dose of 2000 milligrams of glutathione.  Josephine said that within an hour she felt relief and after five days of this treatment she was better.  Dr. Horowitz has written up this case and another similar case with a man in his 50’s in the journal “Respiratory Medicine Case Reports”.  This story was reported in the New York Post on May 9th, 2020. 

 

Why Glutathione?

In response to an infection, our bodies produce inflammatory cytokines that could potentially escalate and overwhelm us and even kill us if not for the antioxidant capabilities of quenching this reaction.  Probably the most important antidote for this is glutathione.  Made up of three amino acids, (cysteine, glycine and glutamine) our bodies assemble these three amino acids into glutathione which can

Coronavirus. Testing 1-2-3 

It was barely six weeks ago on March 1st, that the CDC claimed that only 15 Americans were sick with the coronavirus.  Clearly this was an illusion and the virus was already everywhere.  Some estimates say that there were already 10,000 Americans that had been infected.  Now here in mid-April and we just passed 600,000 cases of infection and close to 24,000 deaths here in the U.S.  In these confusing times important questions about testing and statistical analysis should be paramount in understanding what is going on. New York seems to be the epicenter for infections in the U.S., but New York has also tested 13x more people on a per capita basis than any other state.  California, with its large population base has completed fewer tests per capita than the country’s next five largest states. We can’t be getting clear data if smaller states such as Massachusetts and Washington are showing high outbreaks due to wider testing, and more populous states such as Texas and California show less of an outbreak with less testing.  Clearly, testing is the heart of the problem regarding an analysis of what exactly our country has been dealing with and how we can move forward without fear. 

 

The standard recommended testing utilizes a long nasal turbinate swab test to the nasopharyngeal area (the back of the nasal cavity) which is then tested for the virus’s RNA by a method called PCR (polymerase chain reaction) that can pick up genetic material of the virus. In most circumstances results come back within 8-24 hours. Abbott labs has a device that has a much quicker turnaround time.  In as little as 5 minutes a positive can be determined and within 13 minutes a negative.  No test is 100% accurate, the nasal turbinate test even when performed correctly by a medical professional has an accuracy rate like the Rapid Influenza Diagnostic Tests (RIDTs) which run about 50%-70% accurate.  More than 70 companies have signed up to sell serology tests or “at home antibody tests” which typically use a finger-prick of blood on a test strip to identify people who either have the virus or have developed immunity to it. Rutgers University just got FDA approval for a simple saliva test they developed that can be done to see if you are infected or over your infection.

We have a Pandemic. 

On March 11th, the World Health Organization declared that Covid-19 as a pandemic. In the three months since the newest Corona virus infection SARS-CoV-2 or Covid-19 (the name of the condition) appeared in Wuhan China about 120,000 people have been diagnosed with it and about 3,500 people have died.  SARS stands for severe acute respiratory syndrome. As of this date, (March 12th, 2020), there have been about 1200 cases of Covid-19 with thirty-six people having died from Covid-19 in the U.S. There is growing concern about the pathogenicity of the virus, what risks this virus will have on our health, what implications it would have on our economy and on our way of life if it were to continue to infect mass amounts of people here within our borders. 

As with any pandemic, these concerns are justified.  Digesting the latest data on infection rates will help us understand the situation and give ourselves, and our society the opportunity to protect ourselves adequately.   (click the headline to see the rest - cause and cure)
