We need to start by saying that we are not medical doctors and we are not making any recommendations for treatment of Covid-19. If you are experiencing any Covid-19 symptoms or suspect you might have Covid, then please get tested and follow the treatment plan prescribed by a doctor you trust.

A control study was done over a 3 month period in 2020 on nutrition and Covid-19 infections. The study was done at Columbia University involving nearly 3,000 front-line medical workers in six countries and was published by the prestigious British Medical Journal. Results of the study discovered that eating a plant-based diet involved a 73% lower risk of getting moderate to severe Covid-19 infections than the standard population. Those who eat pescatarian diets, which is basically a plant-based diet with the addition of fish, had a 59% lower risk of moderate to severe Covid-19 than the standard population, still 14% worse than those eating a plant-based diet. And finally, those who eat a keto diet which is a high fat, high protein, low carb diet have a 48% higher risk of moderate to severe Covid-19 infection than the standard population.

Our symptoms were mild. This doesn’t mean getting Covid-19 was fun. We still experienced a fever, headache, achy feeling and loss of energy, where you feel like a wet noodle. It also impacted our sense of smell and taste. But we didn’t experience the feeling like an elephant was sitting on your chest and extreme difficulty breathing. Buzz was symptom free within two weeks and Carol had a bit of congestion and a cough for three weeks, but then she has Multiple Sclerosis which is an auto-immune disease that causes her body to take longer to recover any time she even gets a cold or the flu. We believe our Covid-19 symptoms were much milder because we eat a whole-foods, plant-based diet. We can’t prove that. It has just been our experience. This study also confirms what we have experienced after getting Covid-19.
