Description
For the current critical situation of COVID-19 worldwide, several recommended hints for improved lifestyle and health were described from integrative medicine (IM) point of view. It includes some categories as follows. i) Exercise: Hippocrates said that walking is the best medicine. Walking fast, climbing stairs, and squats are effective. ii) Sleep and rhythmic lifestyle: Keep sleep and wake up time regularly, avoid looking at display or VDT work before sleep, and have bright light when waking up, especially sunlight. iii) Mental care: The US CDC presents the stressful influences, such as fear and worry about health, worsening of chronic health problems, and increased use of alcohol. Some recommendations of controlling heart and minds include keeping the natural feeling of being as it is, and mindfulness related to the oriental Zen concept. iv) Nutrition: IM and anti-inflammatory diet were proposed by Dr. Andrew Weil at Arizona University. The diet is based on two diets—the Mediterranean diet and the Okinawan diet. v) IM: Several applicable tips for IM show chiropractic, aromatherapy, supplements, medical herbs, Chinese medicine, Ayurveda, acupuncture, and others.
