COVID-19 Recovery Tips

COVID-19 Recovery Tips
By Randy Gage in Prosperity.

Regular readers will know this blog is usually dedicated to prosperity and success strategies.  Today, we’re taking a little bit of a departure because I’ve been slogging through a recovery from COVID-19.  And as you know, health and wellness are vital when it comes to manifesting prosperity.  So I thought it would be helpful to share some tips on what’s working for me.  NOTE: I’m not a doctor, and don’t even play one on TV, so this is NOT medical advice.  Please see your healthcare providers for that.  These are just tips from a layperson about getting back to a healthy lifestyle after you experience the coronavirus.

First the bad news: There’s a strong possibility your recovery will be painful, frustrating, and take a lot longer than you wish.  (Don’t want to affirm that, and hopefully this won’t be the case with you.  There are many different levels of impact with this disease.)  In my case, and from many I’m hearing about, it’s been wearisome and quite challenging.

For those that don’t know me, I’m 61 years old and until recently, been in the best shape of my life.  I’ve been HIV positive, but undetectable since 2006.  Because of that, I’m currently taking an antiretroviral medication, and also taking a statin drug to maintain a healthy cholesterol level.  For the last ten plus years, I did cardio 20-30 minutes every morning and a one-hour resistance training six days a week.  I played softball weekly on a couple championship Masters-level teams.  In early February I started experiencing shortness of breath.  Then it became so severe that simply doing a 30-second plank had me breathing like I had just run six blocks.  It progressed to the point I was having difficulty breathing only lying in bed at night.  I started self-isolating and there were several nights I got up to unlock the deadbolt on my front door and brought my cell phone next to my bed, just in case.  I went from an energetic athlete to someone who got so winded making my bed, I would collapse back into it.  If we share a coffee sometime, you can hear the arduous story of how I finally found out it was COVID.  But let’s skip all that drama and look at how you can best recover if you do have it.

First, know that you can be “over it,” but feel worse than when you actually had it.  That’s because of the damage the virus can do to your lungs and other organs.  If you can’t breathe well, you don’t take in enough oxygen, which makes you feel even more exhausted.  Don’t self-medicate with junk food to try and get energy.  You get a quick sugar high but ultimately feel more run down.  You eat more, exercise less, gain more weight, which makes for a vicious cycle of declining energy.  And your lasting memory of COVID-19 will be the 19 pounds you gained during isolation.

From my perspective, being intubated in the ICU looked like a path to certain death.  (I shouldn’t even say that, but just being real, that’s how I actually felt.)  So I started forcing myself to do anything that made me force more oxygen into my lungs.  Literally the longest I could do cardio was one to two minutes at first.  I built up a minute or two more, as I could.  Some days were easier than others.  Some I simply couldn’t muster the energy to do anything.  You need to get your lung capacity back as quickly as possible.  Some important steps in the process:

Anyway, that is what is helping me.  Like you, I wish it was quicker, but it is what it is.  But being proactive about building up your immunity, lungs, and energy will get you there quicker.  If you have any other suggestions, please share them in the comments below.

    Hi Randy,

    So sorry you’ve been suffering with the dreaded virus. I hope you’re fully recovered now. It was good of you to provide this guide for sufferers. Yes, probably a good idea not to go to the hospital – I heard that putting people on ventilators (as opposed to giving them oxygen) is the worst thing to do, and has a very poor outcome.

    Are you really taking statins? Yikes! You know, this ‘high cholesterol’ myth/theory is based on flawed research. High cholesterol does not exist as a condition – unless you are one of a very small percentage of the population that has familial hypercholesterolaemia. Cholesterol is one of the most valuable substances in the body. It’s the main component of our cell walls and of steroid hormones. In fact, all nucleated cell types can make it, including brain cells. So, keep taking it if you want to deplete your brain cells and brain function! BTW, if you want a real cure for your HIV I know a doctor/scientist who has one. Contact me on the email address I’ve given if you wish to know more.

    Hope you’ll feel better soon,

    Hi Randy, wish you a speedy recovery. Learning how to be healthy has been a life long journey of mine.

    I always enjoy learning new things and have learned many things from you over the years so I send this as knowledge that I consider important and may be helpful to you.

    I am posting a well researched article below on the importance of cholesterol on heart health, HIV, respiratory disorders and being over 60. I’m 63.

    Warning: this article may change your mind:)

    It’s titled “People with high cholesterol live the longest”.

    Take care,

    Hi, Randy, it’s Peter, your Bulgarian publisher. If you need some help. I am an experienced homeopath, just let me know. All my contact info is at – click the UK flag for English. And, please, no statines anymore – they are depleting your body of CoQ10 and damaging your liver and so much worse. As about HIV, I could share some info that may be useful, too, and connect you with some people who have a lot of experience with healing it with homeopathy.

    Best wishes, and get well again soon!

  18. Mucho cariño desde Bolivia i Hope you are way Better ! Gracias mil ! Por las sugerencias te amamos ❤️
