37 year old house wife with a history of digestive problems.
Patient presented with a temperature of 38.1°C, dry itchy throat with a slight amount of unproductive phlegm, nausea, loose bowel, very frequent urination and a feeling of burning heat in chest and back. Patient called 111 to report symptoms and was advised to self isolate at home. Patient took one recommended dose of Panadol which brought the temperature down to 37.3°C.
The patient took Chinese herbal formulas and used acupressure points to control and reduce symptoms whilst following diet advice set out by the practitioner.
Patient experienced difficulty in breathing on day 4, additional formula was added to support the lung function and clear phlegm, and patient was advised on altering sleeping position to ease difficulty in breathing. Panting and breathing difficulty disappeared on the following day.
Fever was controlled, discomfort was reduced to tolerable level to support body's natural fight against the virus. Digestion, bowel movement and urination returned to normal function and frequency. Patient has since fully recovered without any respiratory symptoms.
There is no known treatment for Coronavirus. In China, Chinese medicine was and is still currently widely used in the initial stage of cases with mild symptoms and the recovery stage of severe cases. In patients presenting with mild symptoms, it supports the body's basic functions whilst the body builds up its immunity against the virus and prevents serious conditions developing. Several Chinese herbal formulas were recommended in the 7th edition for the trial version of National Clinical Treatment Protocol for the treatment of COVID-19.
