COVID–19 – An Official Statement from Edge Medical | Edge Weight Loss & Fatigue

FACTS:

The Coronavirus – or Covid-19 as defined by the World Health Organization is an upper respiratory infection that presents with fever, headache, dry cough and generalized body aches.  There is no rash, very little secretions and a chest x-ray may or may not show discrepancies.

Most people will feel sick, but not be compromised in any way.  Special groups with chronic medical conditions such as Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), Pulmonary Fibrosis, Congestive Heart Failure, Diabetes and Cancer may have increased incidents of the virus causing more serious complications. If you are over 70 years of age, you are also at an increased risk to experience more serious complications. It is important to understand the transmission rate is the same regardless of age or any other factors.

As of today, there have been no fatalities in children under the age of 10.  In fact, the mortality rate goes almost undetected up to age 60, then is goes from 1.3% to 3.6%, and reaches its highest level of 14.8% at the age of 80.  The death rate is slightly higher in males at 2.8% than in females at 1.7%.  Often, the higher death rates are in people with pre-existing medical conditions mentioned above.

PREVENTION:

Please follow official communications from the Center for Disease Control and World Health Organization.  Facebook and Social Media are NOT sources for information regarding this virus.

Nothing will substitute common sense when it comes to preventing this, or any other disease!

Avoid crowded places.  Avoid International travel.  Avoid people who have traveled overseas. Avoid people who are sick. Wash your hands often and keep your hands away from your face.

Contrary to common belief, the virus is not airborne.  It is a droplet and is only spread by touching the secretions of an infected person.

TREATMENT:

There is no specific antiviral to treat Covid-19 and an effective vaccine has not yet been developed.  It will take approximately 1 year to develop, fully test and release a vaccine.  By then, the epidemic will be controlled by public health measures alone.

Disinfecting objects that were touched by the infected person is important to deter spreading of the virus.

As we learned from a previous epidemic caused by a Coronavirus called SARS, ozone is known to destroy the virus.

COVID-19 is an enveloped virus. In past studies, 99 percent of viruses have been destroyed and showed damage to their envelope proteins after 30 seconds of exposure to ozone. This can result in the virus’s failure to attach to normal, healthy cells, and the breakdown of the single-stranded RNA can lead to the destruction of the virus.

Ozone has been proven to kill the SARS Coronavirus. Viruses are small particles made up of crystals; ozone destroys viruses by attacking the nucleic acid core, thus damaging the viral RNA. After destroying these particles, ozone dissipates and leaves breathable oxygen as its only byproduct.

RECOMMENDATIONS:

The majority of patients infected with Coronavirus will never know it.  They will just have mild symptoms with no complications.

If you have mild symptoms of fever, headache, cough, sore throat and body aches and are not short of breath, weak or debilitated – stay home and call your doctor.

If you belong to the high-risk group (elderly, COPD, Hypertension, Diabetes, Cancer, etc.) and you experience the mild symptoms listed above, we recommend you go to the hospital, where you can be properly treated and the facilities are more prepared to reduce spreading the virus.

 

If you have any questions or are experiencing mild symptoms, feel free to call The Woodlands Lung Center at 936-242-1973 or Edge Medical Group at 281-900-8478.

                                                                                                                                                                                                  

OZONE Rx

Ozone gas has a high oxidation potential and is 1.5 times greater than chloride when used as an antimicrobial agent against bacteria, viruses, fungi, and protozoa. It also has the capacity to stimulate blood circulation and the immune response. Such features justify the current interest in its application in medicine and dentistry and have been indicated for the treatment of 260 different pathologies. J Contemp Dent Pract. 2008 May 1;9(4):75-84. Review.

Ozone therapy, the most studied and least expensive to perform, is in itself a germicide, not an antibiotic, and improves several physiological parameters essential for infection defense. Recent reports indicate very favorable responses to both bacterial and viral disease, inclusive of Ebola.

Basic science, both in vivo and in vitro, research has found it to have several effects including modulating the immune system, enhancing circulation, destroying microorganisms including bacteria and viruses, and enhancing oxygen delivery and consumption by the body. Med Gas Res. 2018 Sep 25;8(3):121-124. doi: 10.4103/2045-9912.241078. eCollection 2018 Jul-Sep.

Diseases treated are infected wounds, circulatory disorders, geriatric conditions, macular degeneration, viral diseases, rheumatism/arthritis, cancer, SARS and AIDS.J Nat Sci Biol Med. 2011 Jan;2(1):66-70. doi: 10.4103/0976-9668.82319.

FUTURE APPLICATIONS

COVID-19

According to the World Health Organization, coronaviruses are a large family of viruses that cause illnesses ranging from the common cold to more severe diseases such as Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS-CoV) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS-CoV). COVID-19 had not been previously identified in humans until it appeared in Wuhan, China 2019.

COVID-19 is an enveloped virus. In past studies, 99 percent of viruses have been destroyed and showed damage to their envelope proteins after 30 seconds of exposure to ozone. This can result in the virus’s failure to attach to normal, healthy cells, and the breakdown of the single-stranded RNA can lead to the destruction of the virus.

Ozone has been proven to kill the SARS Coronavirus. Viruses are small particles made up of crystals; ozone destroys viruses by attacking the nucleic acid core, thus damaging the viral RNA. After destroying these particles, ozone dissipates and leaves breathable oxygen as its only byproduct.
