COVID-19 Expertise

During the lock-down in March I was selected for a national Rapid Response COVID Task Force. Our small group was charged with researching the SARS CoV-2 virus, its lifecycle and its vulnerabilities. We read through more than 1,500 publications to develop a deep understanding of how all therapeutic modalities interfere with viral replication. It is my pleasure to share the benefits of this expertise with you!

We’ll get through this together!

COVID-19 has presented a major challenge for all of us. Many of us have seen changes in work, school, shopping and leisure activities. All of us are feeling the anxiety of the unknown and continue to be concerned about what the future holds. I share your concerns and want to help address your health questions and needs.

Why is it vital to improve the function of our immune system?

It has become clear that the risk of infection is based on two key variables: the amount of virus you are exposed to, and the strength of your immune system. An exposure to a few viral particles is unlikely to represent a risk to anyone. A huge viral load is a big problem for everyone. But – the most common exposure is in the middle range. This is where a more robust immune system gives you the best opportunity to avoid illness and avoid progression to severe disease.

What is an Immune Function Consultation?

Dr. Goldman will review your personal health history to highlight areas where there are opportunities to improve the function of your immune system. There are key variables that have been identified as important risks factors for COVID-19 and he will discuss how to mitigate them.

Good health starts with good nutrition, so this special package also includes a discussion with our New York Times best-selling author, Missy Chase Lapine. Missy is both a Health Coach and a Nutritionist. She will guide you through a nutritional approach to improving your immune function.

 

 

What is a COVID-19 Consultation?

There remain many legitimate questions about COVID-19. My patients have been seeking out my opinions regarding conflicting advice from different authorities, as well as particular concerns about themselves or their loved ones. I am prepared to discuss at length any of your questions and concerns – avoiding exposure, quarantining, best testing practices, interpretation of test results, and treatment options for early to late disease.
