Chris Cuomo is using CBD as part of his coronavirus regimen

Chris Cuomo, the host of Cuomo Prime Time on CNN, was recently diagnosed with COVID-19 and is currently recuperating at his home in the Hamptons.

We recently got a look at Chris Cuomo’s treatment regimen through his wife’s website, The Purist, and we would like to share it with you. 

The parts that are in Italics are from The Purist website, the parts that are not are from us.

A plan individualized for Chris 

The treatment regimen that Chris is following was specially formulated for him in consultation with experts that the family trusts. 

This plan was individualized for Chris based on his symptoms. As the symptoms change day to day, so do the doses and homeopathy. Dr. Linda Lancaster, who has a small clinic in Santa Fe, New Mexico, prescribes what resonates with the patient and is dedicated to the natural way. It is an integration of other elements he wanted to take, like Tylenol and Allegra-D. I don’t like the idea of taking too much Tylenol, as it suppresses the immune system. 

Foods, herbs, homeopathy, and vitamins are necessary for this time. I put together a stress-free diet this week that isn't taxing on the liver and doesn't consume energy necessary to focus on fighting this virus and support the immune system. There are a lot of cooked foods like soups, lentils, chicken, legumes, and vegetables. It takes a lot of energy to break down raw foods, especially when you're sick. Food is medicine! 

The natural path 

In Chris’s treatment regimen, he’s using natural herbs to boost his immunity and reduce the effects of COVID-19. 

Dr. Linda operates on what resonates with Chris to create his protocol, and we continue to build his immune system with herbal tonics and good food.

We are using a few herbs that we know are antiviral. Some antiviral medications can suppress the immune system, but we're using known herbs that boost the immune system. Dr. Linda kept her eye on what was happening in Italy (she is Italian); she got ahead of the curve with the help of her herbalist son and started sending patients immune formulas to get their immune system in shape.

She also created a different formula for those who had already contracted the virus by adding antivirals. The main one is Andrographis—a Chinese herb used for flu and viruses; the formula also includes olive leaf—which is antiviral and antifungal—and now oil of oregano. Chis is also taking anti-inflammatories like curcumin, which is found in turmeric.

Vitamins and homeopathy

Chris’s regimen also calls for him to take vitamins and homeopathic remedies. 

The other part of this protocol are vitamins like vitamin C—6000 mlg a day—which oxygenates the blood (the virus steals oxygen, so it’s important to test oxygen levels with an oximeter). It’s an alkalizing C, which is easy to digest. We are also giving him minerals like zinc—it is synergistic to what Dr. Linda prescribed for Chris, and it helps with his cough.

On top of this is homeopathy, which works according to the symptom picture. Potentized quinine (OXO); it’s derived from the nontoxic bark of Peruvian-grown quinine plants. It is a natural antibiotic (it’s being used in India with very good results). This is not on the market here; Dr. Linda has made this in her lab for 40 years, and I took this for my Lyme. (The medicine Plaquinol, which many doctors are using for COVID-19 is quinine, but it has negative side effects.)

Other homeopathic we are deploying:

Belladonna, for fever. 

Byonina, for a dry cough

Rhus tox, for aching in the muscles

Camphora, for shortness of breath

A tincture called Respiratory Response—with Lomation for virus as well as olive leaf

To his homeopathics Dr. Linda added: 

Increase OXO for oxygenation to 2 pills 3x a day. That’s because doctors are finding that quinine potentially slows the breakdown of iron from hemoglobin and the resulting oxidative stress. OXO is an oxygenating formula that works on the liver, and in turn, on the blood that passes through the liver.

Add Bryonia, for cough, 2 pellets

HOCL gargle, for throat

Briotech spray, for throat

I added OMO’s Full Spectrum CBD to his nightly routine too for pain and sleep


We wish Chris Cuomo a quick recovery and hope that by sharing his treatment regimen we have provided vital information on how some people are handling the COVID19 pandemic.
