Covid-19 is a new pathogen, but it's nature is actually quite well understood in terms of Chinese Medicine, which categorises it as a cold-damp invasion. As such we can make excellent preparations to keep strong and stand a good chance of not being strongly impacted should one get it as outlined below:

Stages of managing coronavirus:

1. Preventative Stage

Keep the basic function of the body at optimal level to allow the immune system to work at full function to keep pathogens at bay. One of the best approach for prevention, in general, is the natural approach of daily exercise, nourishing food, good relaxation and good sleep. East west clinic is able to prescribe in addition to this approach herbal tonics that can enhance the energy of the body, which in turn boosts the functioning of the immune system.

2. Treatment Stage

Use the full breadth of Chinese Herbal medicine to combat the symptoms including respiratory distress. Acupuncture could theoretically be used here, as it is in China, but here in the UK we are able to prescribe personalised herbal formulas to exactly match symptoms. This is done remotely via zoom. Remedies can be given at short notice and even delivered the same day if in the Farnham area, according to availability. This is a non-standard appointment type, and to book please contact me directly via the contact me form on the booking page

3. Recovery Stage and/or Long Covid

After the infection has subsided herbs are used to rebuild the body's function and get the person up and running again. Like the stage above a personalised formula dispensed via a zoom appointment. Again, as this is a non-standard appointment type, contact me directly via the contact me form on the booking page. Long-covid is of course an increasing problem, and specially tailored treamtent can be given for this, including acupuncture. If you are a new patient, just use the standard online booking procedure on the booking page.
