Functional Medicine Approach to COVID-19

By Amy Baker

While at this time there are no uniformly effective treatments for COVID-19, The Institute for Functional Medicine has recently published an assessment of promising prevention approaches and therapeutic interventions.  Although not comprehensive (many western and Chinese herbal protocols are showing great promise), their recommendations are an excellent place to start as you consider how to keep yourselves and your families healthy and strong during these trying times.  You can find detailed information, including dosing recommendations, here

It has always been our mission to inform and empower our customers to take charge of their own health.  We’re happy to say that you can find most of the items recommended by the Institute for Functional Medicine at Community Pharmacy and Community Wellness Shop, including:

  • Quercetin
  • Curcumin
  • Green tea
  • NAC
  • Resveratrol
  • Vitamin D3
  • Melatonin
  • Vitamin A
  • Elderberry
  • Vitamin C
  • Zinc

Our knowledgeable, experienced staff is here to help you with selections.  For your safety and ours, our doors are locked, but WE ARE TAKING ORDERS BY PHONE AND OFFERING CURBSIDE PICKUP SERVICE.  We can also arrange delivery and shipping, free to certain areas (minimum purchase may apply).  Please call 608/251-3242 (downtown) or 608/310-5390 (Middleton).

Be well!
