That’s what we explore on this episode of The Exam Room™ podcast as “The Weight Loss Champion” Chuck Carroll is joined by Dr. Jasmol Sardana. The pair discusses the vitamins and nutrients that are critical to building a healthy immune system and will tell you about additional steps you can take to help fight the virus. 

Then there is good news from China! Dr. Jia Xu joins Chuck and reveals that life is returning to normal following weeks of quarantine and isolation. Restaurants and businesses are reopening as people begin emerging from their homes. Hopefully this is a sign of what is to come for those of us living in areas where the number of cases is still surging.

Plus, Jia details the steps that have been taken in China to address live animal markets, which are believed to be ground zero for COVID-19. From his perspective, it appears that officials are learning from mistakes made in the past and taking steps that could prevent another deadly global outbreak.


Join us Wednesdays at noon ET for a live Q/A with Dr. Neal Barnard!
