The above credentials are just a fraction of the numerous titles and that are attached to his name.  Nevertheless, one of the more relevant titles that Doc Ted has gained this year is that of COVID Survivor.

Doc Ted caught the virus during the early days of the Enhanced Community Quarantine.  Isolated and treated, Dr. Ted Esguerra was able to overcome the attacks of the novel coronavirus to his system.

Because of this, Dr. Ted came up with what he coined as the COVID COMMANDMENTS.  Doc Ted had this to say:

As a COVID Survivor, I come to realize that applying the best safety practices (other than a healthy immune system) for CoViD is the hallmark that one can follow so that he/she can be out of the complications of the disease. It made me create the 12 COMMANDMENTS OF SAFETY FOR COVID-19 which is a mnemonic of Tips to protect everyone from infection:

–  Cover properly your mouth and nose with appropriate Mask (surgical mask, properly sewn clothe mask, N95, or O2 Canada Mask and if possible, with face shield)
–  Observe frequent Hand washing (with soap and water) or hand sanitizing
M –  Mind the physical distancing norms (6 feet apart)
M –  Mind the coughing and sneezing etiquette
A –  Avoid touching your face particularly the mouth, eyes, or nose
–  Never stay or move away quickly from crowded areas
–  Do not go out of your house unless it is necessary
M –  Minimize or avoid contact with frequently-touched public materials (e.g. knobs, toilet faucets) or common public surfaces (e.g. rails, counter/teller platform). Use foot, back of hand or elbow to open doors, use ‘extensions’ like Key 9 Bronze tool to press ATM and elevator buttons, use plastic bag holders, use gloves, bring exact fare when paying, etc
–  Emphasize in having air movement inside vehicle (2-3 inches opening with or without aircon), or in enclosed rooms by opening windows or doors to allow ventilation (better if with fans to form wind tunnel)
N –  Never forget to sanitize item/s frequently used or handled (cellular phone, car keys, computer keyboard)
–  Take a bath once you come from work, market, or any crowded area
–  Secure in a small plastic bag or simply fold properly used mask, gloves or any PPE before throwing it in the trash bin.

Above all, nothing beats having a healthy immune system to help ward of the effects of COVID.

While oral intake of vitamins may be good, some of us are not really getting the most for our money as statistically, our bodies' rate of absorption of oral supplements is usually well below 100%.

Given this scenario, one of the best options around is to supplement the vitamin intake with a direct intravenous infusion.

One company that does direct intravenous infusion is REVIV PhilippinesREVIV Philippines is part of a global network of IV therapy clinics in the UK, the US, and other key global cities.  REVIV has changed the game in the way they service their clientele doing the treatments in their Mobile Wellness Van which brings the treatment to your doorstep, or where you would prefer to have it, given our current restricted movement.  

REVIV treatments are designed to boost the immune system, improve recovery from strenuous activities and from colds, pain, nausea and to reduce inflammation. Other treatments include an electrolyte boost and help rehydrate the body and flush lactic acid from the body. Most do a lot to improve your outward appearance, giving you a healthy glow that only people in peak health exhibit. 

The process is very pleasant as conducted in REVIV's daily sanitized wellness van, staffed with registered nurses and overseen by a doctor.

One of the latest products is the Miniboost drip treatment, which is a combination of vitamin C, B-12 and electrolytes that give the immune system a substantial lift.
