Yo Your Health: Treatments & Vaccines, Updates

Part-time Telluride local Dr. Alan Safdi, a world-renowned internist and gastroenterologist with encyclopedic knowledge of mind-body wellness and preventative medicine, posts on Telluride Inside… and Out under the banner of “To Your Health.” His blogs feature the most current information in his field: health, wellness, and longevity. Which now has to mean Dr. Alan’s podcasts are all about what’s on everyone’s mind: COVID-19. 

Links a few recent podcasts on COVID-19 are here:

Podcast 1: Distancing during Covid-19 Epidemic…how far is enough?  Also the proper hand-washing technique.

Podcast 2: Testing for Covid-19 and what are the differences and indications for each type of test?

Dr. Alan’s podcast, on ways to boost your natural immunity during this pandemic.

And now the downlow on potential treatments and The Vaccine.

“It is important to remember that less than 10 percent of drugs that enter clinical trials are ever approved by the FDA. And that the number of deaths from Covid-19 in 2020 has already surpassed the number of deaths per year from H.I.V./AIDS during the height of the crisis in the 1990s. That said, through treatments, many people are living long lives with H.I.V./AIDS,” explained Dr. Alan.
