J.K. Rowling and Chris Cuomo both found the same remedy to battle Coronavirus: It’s not a pill or a potion
While nothing is a Panacea and Medical Attention is always Advised, at Least Something that could help is being discussed…
A Virus with no cure, no vaccine and no approved drugs available, other than fever reducers such as Tylenol, the novel coronavirus, also known as covid-19 is very scary indeed. One tiny ray of hope has emerged from social media in the form of celebrities that have contracted the disease and either recovered or are recovering as we speak.
Among many in the limelight who have tested positive, some, such as Idris Elba and his wife, were and remain asymptomatic, even as the prescribed quarantine period has elapsed. Tom Hanks and his wife, Rita Wilson have now fully recovered. Singer Pink and her 3-year-old son tested positive but have fully recovered and are now negative.
Writer of the wildly successful Harry Potter book series, author J.K. Rowling frightened millions of fans around the world a few weeks ago when she announced that she had contracted many of the symptoms associated with COVID-19: “For last 2 weeks I’ve had all symptoms of C19 (tho haven’t been tested)”, she said in a tweet.
Luckily, the writer is married to Scottish doctor Neil Murray. He also recommended a home remedy for her symptoms. The remedy is a breathing exercise. It involves taking five deep breaths, holding them in for four full seconds, then exhaling. On the sixth deep breath, you let it out with a forceful cough. After doing this cycle twice, you lie on chest-down on the ground, breathing slightly deeper than regularly. Dr Sarfaraz Munshi, from Queens Hospital in the UK , explains that a larger area of the lungs are in our back rather than front, and by lying on our backs we are closing off more airways. Therefore, he suggests lying face-down when finishing the exercise.
“Here’s the secret to kicking’ this virus. It’s not a pill or a potion. It’s about your will and devotion. The virus wants us to lay down. You’ve got to do things to beat this virus, you’ve got to breathe deep when it hurts. “– Chris Cuomo
The U.K. doctors who have been sharing this technique advise people feeling sick to spend lots of time lying chest-down, for it places less strain on the lungs than lying on one’s back.
“You have to walk around — it hurts. You don’t want to do it. Everything in your body is telling you not to do it, and it’s lying to you, and I know that now… The more I push myself to do, the better I’m getting, so I’m going to take faith in that for now.“– Chris Cuomo
Chris Cuomo credits Same Technique and Practices it “5x” per day
On his CNN show, which he continues to broadcast, albeit from his basement, Chris explained that he’s been pushing himself to keep active. “When the fever spikes you just want to curl up in a ball and stay there for the next six, seven hours and you can’t. You’ve got to bundle up your clothes, you’ve got to start drowning yourself in fluid,” he said, sharing the results of his X-ray with CNN’s Dr. Sanjay Gupta. “You have to walk around — it hurts. You don’t want to do it. Everything in your body is telling you not to do it, and it’s lying to you, and I know that now… The more I push myself to do, the better I’m getting, so I’m going to take faith in that for now.”

J.K. Rowling recently Tweeted that she is fully recovered, and she shared the technique that helped her get better via a YouTube link. Chris Cuomo, meanwhile, according to his wife Christina, was experiencing a greatly reduced fever (99º) and appears to be recovering after 121 days+ of fighting “The Beast”. Hearing that Rowling is doing well is a sigh of relief in these trying times. Nevertheless, the case shows that nobody is safe from the coronavirus, and we all must take the proper precautions to eliminate the pandemic’s spread. Of course, such a homemade provision is not a cure or an excuse for seeking legitimate medical help. If you feel sick, you should still go to the doctor.
