About this talk

Research into the efficacy of integrative interventions to treat systemic inflammation could have major implications for the acute and long-term effects of COVID-19. Reviews and analyses suggest mind-body practices and supplements may have effect sizes similar or superior to leading COVID-19 medications on the inflammatory markers most affected by the disease. Ryan Castle — Director of the Chopra Research Library — will discuss the ramifications of this evidence and how it could influence global strategies to curtail the current and lasting impact of the pandemic, including the expected long-term spike in chronic inflammatory diseases.
