Factors That Make You More At Risk for Coronavirus
If you have certain medical conditions, your immune system may already be in a weakened state, which makes you more prone to contracting coronavirus. Some conditions that increase your risk include:
- Respiratory disease
- Cardiovascular disease
- Immunocompromising conditions
Individuals who have any of the listed conditions may have a compromised immune system. Essentially, the immune system is either in a weakened state due to the illness or because it is working harder to keep the body going.
Functional Medicine May Help
Simply taking medications alone to combat the symptoms of an illness does not mean you are any less at risk of contracting coronavirus. Unfortunately, traditional medicine most often delivers a one-size-fits-all treatment plan that is specifically aimed at treating the symptoms. Functional medicine involves taking an in-depth look at your medical condition through lab testing, thorough medical history examination, and more to do more than treat the symptoms. This unique form of medical treatment is aimed at naturally reversing health conditions through methods like dietary changes and environmental adjustments that may put you at an increased risk of contracting other illnesses like COVID-19.
