Symptoms of COVID-19 vs. FLU vs. COLD vs. ALLERGIES

As we are well into the Fall and approaching Winter, we are seeing more common seasonal colds and flu symptoms.  While testing is encouraged by the CDC and LA Public Health, it can still offer peace of mind to have an idea about what you might be dealing with if you come down with any symptoms, so please check out this chart.  

SYMPTOMS of COVID-19 vs FLU vs COLD vs ALLERGIES

Providing both natural and/or conventional therapies for colds, flus and the C-virus is what we do best at Oasis Family Medicine, so please reach out to us.

WHICH TEST TO GET FOR SARS-CoV-2?

Oasis Family Medicine offers a few testing options.

  • Quest for PCR 'swab' test.  PCR testing is used when you are actively sick or think you have been exposed to someone with COVID-19.  Turnaround time for the PCR 'swab' testing, which we do up the nose and in the throat, is around 2-7 days to get the results back.  This is the main test used across the country.  A positive test is good to rule in infection with COVID-19, but a negative test does not definitively rule out COVID-19. 
  • Quest IgG antibody testing.  IgG is the 'long term' antibody that usually shows up by day 14 of infection.  Results typically back within 2-3 days.  Best, if you're 'just curious' if your body mounted an antibody immune response in the past (greater than 2 weeks ago). 
  • In-office rapid (results in 30 min or less) for both IgM and IgG antibodies.  Again, IgG usually show up by day 14 of infection.  IgM shows up by day 4 or 5 of an infection so this can be a great way to get back rapid results, though this is not encouraged to diagnose COVID-19 by the CDC or LA Public Health Department.  This test is $60 when done in the office which is much less expensive than almost everywhere else that offers it. 

WHERE TO GET TESTED?

In addition to Oasis Family Medicine offering the above testing options, the following offer the PCR 'swab' test for free.


I hope this information is helpful to you. Have a great week and as always, please feel free to pass this along!

Mid-October Updates: COVID-19 Analysis + Rapid Antibody Tests + Social Dilemma + Unity Video ‌ ‌

Below are several valuable resources I'd like to offer - some you may have already seen, some are new. I agree with the majority of the information offered. Please check out each one - they are very much worth your time! Enjoy! 

_______________________

Please watch my video about the Ivor Cummins video and the Dr. Zach Bush podcast, two excellent resources for COVID-19 analysis. The links for those are provided below. I hope you agree that they provide valuable insight and information in these uncertain times.



This recent video with Ivor Cummins on COVID Death Statistics Update Sept 8th: the Science, Logic and Data Explained is fantastic - I highly recommend it!

NOW AVAILABLE IN OUR OFFICE: Rapid SARS-CoV-2 IgM & IgG antibody tests.  Results are available within 20 - 30 minutes. Please watch my video for more details.

Recently, I watched a Netflix documentary that has altered the way I view and use social media.  The documentary is called The Social Dilemma, which exposes how large social networking companies like Facebook have created algorithms which are causing humanity to take on highly negative beliefs, feelings, habits and ways of connecting with each other.  Engineers within these companies are sounding the alarm.

As a father of three, it made me deeply ponder not only how I will use social media going forward but also how I will bring it to my kids. Please watch my video for my take on this fascinating documentary, then head over to Netflix to watch it (you can watch the trailer here) and judge for yourself. Enjoy!


_______________________

Please watch (and share) this important video called "Unity Video - A Collaboration Between Millions Against Medical Mandates and Children's Health Defense." The Unity Video features Robert Kennedy Jr, doctors, nurses, researchers, lawyers, parents, and activists from all over the world who are standing in strength and solidarity against a mandatory COVID vaccine.

Enjoy the videos and as always, and please feel free to pass this along!

Air Quality + Rapid Antibody Testing + Thrive I and Thrive II movies

With the air quality being so bad recently, I have had a lot of questions about air purifiers and ways to improve air quality. Please watch my video below where I discuss some of the best options for air purifiers.

I do believe that breathing clean, nearly pollution-free air for 6-8 hours every day/night is very important. We have 3 Molekule units in the Oasis Family Medicine Office and I personally have 1 molekule unit for each bedroom at home and they work FANTASTIC.

Here's the link for Molekule to receive $50 off any purchase, if you're interested. And full disclosure, Oasis will be given a $50 Amazon gift card if you purchase using this link: https://share.molekule.com/x/zD8Y60

Links for the other air purifiers that I mention in the video are below:




NOW AVAILABLE IN OUR OFFICE: Rapid SARS-CoV-2 IgM & IgG antibody tests. Results are available within 20 - 30 minutes. Please watch my video below for more details.



Please watch my video below about the Thrive I and Thrive II movies. The original (Official Movie) THRIVE: What On Earth Will It Take? was released in 2012 and you can watch it here

I'd also like to share this exciting new trailer for THRIVE II: This is What it Takes. Focusing on breakthrough solutions, this welcome new movie offers grounded hope when we need it most.



Have a great week, and please feel free to pass this along!
