Medicina natural y COVID 19 en Ecuador

  • Frank Hutchins Bellarmine University
Palabras clave: medicina natural, estrategias familiares, Covid-19

Resumen

Ecuador es un país pluricultural, lo que se refleja en su historia de pluralismo médico. Esto se ha vuelto especialmente evidente con la propagación del COVID-19. Este documento analiza los resultados de una encuesta sobre el uso de medicamentos naturales para prevenir el virus. Los encuestados en la región de Santo Domingo de los Colorados indican que han recurrido a una variedad de remedios naturales, como limón, jengibre y ajo, durante la pandemia. Esto contribuye a un creciente cuerpo de estudios que analizan el uso de medicamentos naturales para tratar o prevenir COVID-19.
