Med Acupunct. 2021 Feb 1;33(1):107-114. doi: 10.1089/acu.2020.1441. Epub 2021 Feb 16.ABSTRACTCoronavirus disease (COVID-19) has expanded around the world, resulting in a pandemic with high morbidity and mortality. To date, no specific treatment or vaccine is available to treat or prevent this sudden and potentially deadly disease. Economic restructuring brings opportunities and challenges to integrative medicine treatment. In such complex situations, integrative medicine treatments are to be provided cautiously, and the shift from in-person visits to remote medical services might play an important role in how such services...

We report 2 successful cases in this study showing the patient's chest computed tomography scans and temperature charts made on before, during, and after treatment to demonstrate proof of the positive benefits achieved. Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) demonstrates a positive effect in the treatment for COVID-19. It is highly recommended that TCM be incorporated early on in the treatment schedule for COVID-19.PMID:33613817 | PMC:PMC7894045 | DOI:10.1089/acu.2020.1432

Conclusion: The herbs chosen for the QDQF1 formula have been historically paired, and cast a wide net over the potential COVID-19 symptomatology. Their combined functions provide comprehensive and balanced therapeutics from both TCM and allopathic perspectives. Individual herbs and herbal combinations are analyzed for their applicability to pertinent TCM patterns of COVID-19 presentations, including heat and cold patterns, damp and phlegm syndromes, toxicity, and deficiency patterns. A further study in a randomized, double-blind, and placebo-controlled trial of QDQF1 is recommended to assess its therapeutic efficacy in the...

The outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) underlined the urgent need for alleviating cytokine storm. We propose here that activating the cholinergic anti-inflammatory pathway (CAP) is a potential therapeutic strategy. However, there is currently no approved drugs targeting the regulatory pathway. It is evident that nicotine, anisodamine and some herb medicine, activate the CAP and exert anti-inflammation action in vitro and in vivo. As the vagus nerve affects both inflammation and specific immune response, we propose that vagus nerve stimulation by invasive or non-invasive devices and acupuncture at ST36, PC6, or...
