The Atma Approach to COVID Prevention: A Case Study -- By Dr. Neela Sandal
Atma Clinic takes a holistic approach to our patients, including those encountering COVID. To illustrate, Dr. Neela Sandal shares this case study:
Patient T.T came to Atma Clinic with worry about a recent COVID exposure. She was wondering how to prevent becoming ill if she hadn’t yet caught it. She was also wondering what she could do if she had contracted COVID.
A previous doctor had recommended she get tested, and wait and see what happened. Her doctor hadn’t recommended any prevention techniques and was not aware that there are promising therapies for active COVID. T.T came to Atma Clinic for a second opinion. After initially consulting with her, my fellow practitioners and I concluded she was a good candidate for preventative therapies.
We got her started on a preventative regimen of custom dosed vitamin C, vitamin D, and zinc. It’s important to note that these therapies don’t guarantee prevention. However, there’s published studies indicating that such approaches do help in preventing COVID.
We also discussed what’s new in the literature regarding treatment of active COVID, should it come to that. The Atma Approach is always to provide the most cutting edge science. In this case, that meant going to the latest research and discussing what is known with the patient, then talking through her best options.
T.T remains COVID free today, even though she did have close contact, indoors, with someone who tested positive for COVID.
