Herbalist and Doctor of Traditional Chinese Medicine Jimi Wollumbin is back on the podcast for this special Friday Fireside. After chatting with Jimi a few days ago about the broader, philosophical nature of viruses and their spread, this episode is very specific to the stages and phases of Covid-19 infection/invasion, and how practitioners can be treating this.
This is not meant to be a laid out guide to treatment, simply information to help you stay empowered in your knowing of how this virus is spreading. We keep the conversation in more of a Chinese Medicine realm, so get ready to learn how this virus is seen as an invasion, and how it can be dynamic in the way that it moves through the layers of the body.
We are talking here about treating the body, not the virus. This is a huge difference to modern medicine, and may be useful for you in understanding why it is difficult for practitioners on the front line to give people the exact protocols for treating this.
We get technical at times, but there is lots of practical wisdom that we can be adopting into our knowledge-bank and home to keep us healthy through this, and well into the future.
