In this episode of Functional Medicine Research, I interview a very distinguished guest, Ethan Taylor, PhD about his published research on selenium, glutathione, and COVID-19. Dr. Taylor has a wealth of knowledge and research experience on pandemics, selenium, glutathione, vitamin D, viruses, antimicrobial drug resistance, and how human relationships with animals causes so many of our health problems and climate change. I was extremely grateful to have someone like Dr. Taylor on the show to share his expertise.
I’d like to share with you all the things I’ve been doing since the COVID-19 pandemic started to better myself and stay as healthy as possible. I like the quote, “Whenever one door closes, another door opens.” Of course, I miss doing many of the things I normally do to have fun and interact with other people but this has been a time to take advantage of the many opportunities available. No matter what kind of health issues you’re dealing with, some of these ideas can have significant impact on your overall health.
COVID-19 can cause a hyperinflammatory state in the body which is a potential recipe for developing autoimmune disease. The authors begin by pointing out the most current literature on COVID-19 connections to the autoimmune diseases antiphospholipid syndrome, autoimmune thrombocytopenia, autoimmune hemolytic anemia, and Guillain-Barre syndrome.
In this episode of Functional Medicine Research, I interview Dr. Joe Mather and Dr. Jeffrey Moss about Covid-19 immune strategies. We had a great discussion about the immunology of Covid-19, diet, lifestyle, supplements, as well as Dr. Mather’s first-hand clinical experience with Covid-19.
