I’ve been keeping a daily diary of food and the trial + error of treatment for my husband, Chris Cuomo, in hopes that if indeed it helps him, it can help others recover from COVID-19. Click here to find the clean food and natural antivirals for the first week of COVID-19. Simple things like sunshine (Vitamin D), resonance breathing (clears the lungs), and walking (also gets fluid flowing) have helped him, but are just pieces of the puzzle.
Below, ideas for healthy living at home that also support small business.
Sending out good holiday vibes to you all,
Cristina Cuomo, Purist Founder & Editor
