The Role of Traditional Chinese Medicine in COVID-19: Theory, Initial Clinical Evidence, Potential Mechanisms, and Implications
CONCLUSION: While there is initial support for the use of Traditional Chinese Medicine for COVID-19, conclusions cannot be drawn to support its use as a replacement for conventional COVID-19 treatment, given the lack of high-quality evidence from strictly-designed randomized controlled trials. However, there is initial evidence suggesting that TCM may serve as an effective adjunct to conventional treatments in alleviating COVID-19 symptoms. More research is needed to confirm the efficacy and safety of TCM in treating COVID-19.PMID:34653019 (Source: Alternative Therapies in Health and Medicine)

Reconceptualizing Principles and Models in Osteopathic Care: A Clinical Application of the Integral Theory
Altern Ther Health Med. 2021 Oct 15:AT6750.
