COVID-19 SUCKS! You know it, I know it, we all know it.
Recently, there has been a spike in COVID-19 cases seen at Turk Express Care, and also in Glen Rose, Granbury and across the entire country.

Dr. Turk’s Ways to Fight COVID at home:
*Take Medications as prescribed
*Sleep on your stomach. If you can’t sleep on your stomach because of health issues, sleep

that will allow fluid to set in.
*Breathe in through your nose and out through your mouth. This will help build your lungs,
plus help get rid of the Pneumonia or other fluid you may have.
*When sitting in a recliner, sit up straight -do not lay back, again this will smash your lungs
*While watching TV – get up and walk around during commercials.
*Eat eggs, bananas, avocados, and asparagus. These are a good source of potassium.
*Drink Pedialyte, Gatorade Zero, Powerade Zero, Body Armour Lyte, coconut water, or water
