How to be a winner in treating symptoms of Covid-19

Dim light in the tunnel in fighting against Covid-19

I feel we are getting near the end of the tunnel in fighting against Covid-19. While more people become positive for Covid-19, they tend to recover from symptoms of Covid-19 at home even without any particular treatments. Now we can be a winner in treating symptoms of Covid-19.

Coronavirus has been leaving tremendous effects on our daily life. It also reminds us that we should be thankful for seemingly trivial things, such as human contacts, air, water, breathing, and so on. It is sad that we never know what we feel like until we lose it.

Case study

Our body treating symptoms of Covid-19

Here is my case study for treating Covid-19. My son in Korea called me a week ago, telling me that he contracted Covid-19. He took the required vaccines, but PCT test turned out to be positive for Covid-19. I did not worry much since I heard that people usually experienced minor cold symptoms and that they recovered soon.

I called him every night to see how he was doing. For the first two days, he sounded fine except that he was running high fever. He took western medications to bring down the fever. However, it went down just after the intake, but it went up again.

Covid-19 draining energy

Since the third day, I could hear his voice getting hoarse and losing strength. He even told me he wanted to hang up out of sleepiness. He fell asleep repeatedly. When I texted him to see how he was doing, it took him a couple of hours to reply. And when I replied to it, the next reply came in one or two hours. He kept falling deep into sleep with lack of energy.

I decided that his beneficial energy becomes weaker and weaker. Covid-19 was draining his energy and starting havoc on his existing strength. He became so weak that his body could not respond to even western medications. On the fourth day, I told his wife to get him to take xiao jian zhong tang granule which I had sent a couple of months ago. The formula just turned the tables. The next day, he regained his energy enough to have phone conversations. The formula helped rekindle the diminishing energy in the body.

According to shang han lun, even when exterior cold pathogens invade our body, we must not use ma huang tang if patients have feeble and slow pulse. It is that beneficial qi is already getting depleted. The formula could make the remaining yang qi become drained. The book reads that we should use xiao jian zhong tang.

Herbal medicine

The herbal formula consists of yi tang (maltosum), gui zhi (ram. cinnamomi), bai shao (rx. paeoniae alba), gan cao (rx. glycyrrhizae preparataz), sheng jiang (rz. zingiberis recons), and da zao (fr. jujube). All the herbs collaborate to harmonize digestive system and boost your energy. The formula treats spasmodic abdominal pain that arises out of deficiency. It also treats bleeding, low blood pressure, high blood pressure, erectile dysfunction, neurosis, fatigue, and poor appetite, which all result from deficiency.

Deeper stage in Covid-19 symptoms

Covid-19 is not cold pathogens that invade our body. It is more of febrile disease. What matters now is that his beneficial qi is too weak to fight against the pathogen. Moreover, the western medications may make him feel weaker. It felt like he entered Shoyin stage.

The principle of Shaoyin stage is that the patient has feeble and thin pulse and only desires to sleep. The feeble pulse indicates yang deficiency, and the thin pulse shows yin deficiency.

Boosting energy

To preserve beneficial qi is more important that evil qi. There is a simple fact, which is that if we do not eat, we die. a master of shang han lun in Korea said in his book that the best herbal formula for cancers is xi quan da bu tang. His long clinical experience told him that when the patient is too weak, his body cannot accept any kind of good medicines. Before treating any diseases, he said that we need to boost his energy.

Another master of acupuncture and moxibustion in Korea, called “Gudang”, focused on helping the patient eat better in his own acupuncture and moxibustion protocol. To be brief, his protocol includes ST 36, Ren 12, LI 11, Ren 4, Ren 6, LI 4, Liv 3, BL 13, BL 43, BL 23, and so on. I treated many difficult disorders successfully using his acupuncture and moxibustion protocol.

Preserve beneficial energy

We must not forget that we are treating human beings, not a disease itself. If we look at the disease only, we are likely to administer all kinds of medicines just to strike the disease down. Then, what would happen to our body? We could make much weaker the body which the disease has already damaged. We cannot overemphasize that preserving beneficial energy should come first in treating diseases. Herbal medicine can play a great role in treating side effects and sequelae from Covid-19.
