While the global cases of COVID-19 have begun to decline, the virus and the medical issues it presents are likely to remain a significant issue for some time to come. As conventional medical therapy is limited, complementary medical providers are well-positioned to use their skill sets in the management of COVID-19, from both a prevention and symptom treatment standpoint. This lecture will introduce the concepts of Functional Medicine as it relates to the immune system and its response to viral infections. We will also review the energetic archetypes and Chinese medical patterns associated with COVID-19 and discuss various approaches to address them with acupuncture, herbs and Acutonics® in sound healing.
