Chris Cuomo's Wife Christina Shares Her COVID-19 Wellness Regime

Cristina Cuomo, the wife of famous CNN news anchor Chris Cuomo, has shared some of her tips on fighting the deadly novel coronavirus. 

Earlier this week, Cristina published a blog post detailing her family's ordeal with the virus, Her husband tested positive last month, and in the weeks since then, she also did. 

Cristina's post gave an account of how the infection progressed. She pointed out that it began with a sinus infection, and soon enough, she began getting headaches and body aches.

Since there's no cure for the virus just yet, she decided to try some natural herbs that she got for her husband. 

Then, she emphasized the importance of rest and a good, long night's sleep. She also credited meditations, which she said helped to balance her cortisol levels. She added:

"….We utilize the breathing mechanism to influence the flow of vital life energy deep within the physical body."

Every day is a gift. ♥️ Many have asked how Chris is doing and what meds he’s taking. Here’s an update: After one week of up and down symptoms—chills, body aches, total exhaustion, sleeplessness, and a fever that hit 103, he is on day 11 today, (day 1 being first day of allergy-like symptoms)—he seems slightly better, but still feels the incredible lethargy, with fever down to 99 for past 3 days. His Oxygen levels (tested daily on a finger Oximeter) were normal all week. He has maintained his sense of taste and smell, but not his usual hearty Italian appetite. His lungs were x-rayed yesterday and they were mostly clear. 💙 Thank you for amazing homemade goodies from friends and the outpouring of love + humor so many of you have provided. They are the oxygen for these biblical times. 🙏 .... CHRIS’ CORONA PROTOCOL—WEEK ONE, began March 30th when positive test came back: .... 🌼 FOR MEDICINE: I enlisted @drlindalancaster @lightharmonics , an Energy Medicine physician, who helped me cure my aggressive Lyme Disease last summer and who treated my mother for breast cancer 20 years ago. Her training is in Ayurveda, medical radiesthesia, radionics, energy healing, nutrition, herbal medicines and detoxification. Since this particular virus has no proven remedy, as Lyme does not, she assigned oxygenated herbs, natural remedies and homeopathics to strengthen Chris' immune system for the battle ahead. .... 🥗 FOR FOOD: The food plan I outlined was meant to cleanse his liver with whole, vital, organic foods so it can manage the viral die-off and provide him with much-needed energy, nutrients, anti-viral, anti-inflammatory properties, like basic chicken soup, + foods low in chemicals like pesticides. .... 🌞 FOR BREATHE + MOVEMENT: 30 minutes daily sunshine helps Vitamin D level. He has also been sitting in the @sunlightensaunas daily, which makes him feel better + has helped with his fever. He has been doing breathing (resonance) exercises everyday for his lungs (video in link), as well as walking around the yard 🌸 so he can get fluid flowing out of lungs. 💛 For all the info on CHRIS’ DAILY ANTI VIRALS + MY DIARY OF FOOD—WEEK ONE, see link in bio. #rebirth

However, her other recommendations appeared to be a tad outlandish. As part of her regimen, she recommended things like Peruvian bark, which will oxygenate the blood. She also counseled for Xanthium, a herbal flower that combats allergies. 

Even more controversial was the addition of non-concentrated bleach. Many believe that bleach can help with bacteria removal. However, experts have also reportedly warned against using it, as its smell could trigger asthma. 

The couple confirmed that their son, Mario, has also tested positive.

So far, however, the Cuomos appear to be okay. Chris claimed earlier this week that he had been cleared of the virus by the CDC so that he could rejoin his family. In a video shared on social media, the CNN anchor also said that Cristina had been cleared too. He added

"This is what I've been dreaming of literally for weeks. This is the dream, just to be back here, doing normal things." 

Sadly, however, it appears that the virus still isn't done with the family. While Chris and his wife are fine, the couple confirmed that their son, Mario, has also tested positive. 

Cristina shared the news on social media, explaining that the 14-year-old has been battling symptoms for a while.

On this 50th anniversary of Earth Day, show kindness toward our planet and every creature who inhabits it, as the transcendent photographer, adventurer, preservationist and raconteur Peter Beard advised us. My old friend’s recent death offers an eerily timely punctuation on this virus and a reminder that we can’t forget to protect one another, and the animals that roam the Earth. 🌏🌏🌏 This virus has created a different version of me. My hope is to be stronger, healthier, smarter about the virus at large. 💙💙💙After 10 days of ups and downs, feeling good one-day and terrible the next, I am now working toward getting my son, Mario, through the virus. My heart hurts more than my head over his infection. This virus does not discriminate. While kids are more resilient, they can suffer same severity of symptoms. I’m applying a modified version of my remedies for his protocol with a focus on lots of vitamins. Since his sense of smell and taste have disappeared, I am feeding him healthy foods that I normally can’t get him to touch. I kept a diary of the past week of my road to recovery. 🙏 Link in bio, as they say.

She also pointed out that she has been trying some of her "remedies" with her son. However, given that he's much younger, she has made some modifications to the regimen. For now, it's all about ensuring that Mario eats healthy and
