How Chris Cuomo Is Using CBD to Recover from Coronavirus

CBD isn't a cure for COVID-19, but it might help alleviate symptoms.

Newscaster Chris Cuomo is in the process of fighting trough coronavirus, and he's sharing his hard-won wisdom with the world.

The CNN anchor has been quarantining at his Hamptons mansion, where—in addition to the regular CDC-recommended practices—he and his wife Cristina have been trying out some alternative forms of medicine. According to her blog The Purist, Cristina worked with the energy medicine physician Dr. Linda Lancaster to craft a formula of herbs that included CBD. Lancaster is trained in "Ayurveda, medical radiesthesia, radionics, energy healing, nutrition, herbal medicine and detoxification methods," wrote Cristina. "She has relieved thousands of patients of parasites—worms, bacterial, fungal and viral—using natural protocols and homeopathics," Cristina writes.

Since I've been working from home a lot recently and making fewer trips to the grocery store, my diet was definitely suffering.

I'd been snacking a lot more and eating things like frozen pizzas and oven fries for dinner—anything that's convenient and saves me unnecessary trips to the store.

I've always had a sweet tooth and now that I had easy access to my cupboard full of junk food all day, I'd been unable to resist the pastries, chocolates and all the sugary treats. After a few days of binging, I had noticed how my increased sugar intake had been affecting my body and I was determined to make a change, but eating healthier would be a challenge while avoiding trips to the store as much as possible.

I started looking into meal delivery services, and I found a few smoothie companies that would provide some nutritional value—I quickly realized this would not be enough to satisfy my cravings. I still wanted to avoid weight gain during my working from home period, so I continued searching.

That's when I came across Nutrisystem. I heard about it before, but I never considered it as I thought it was mostly for weight loss. I never had a huge issue with my weight, but when I saw Nutrisystem sends a monthly shipment that includes breakfasts, lunches, dinner and snacks--I was intrigued, so I kept reading.

All the meals are easy to prepare--they just need to be heated up. The menu is filled with healthier (and delicious!) versions of your favorite foods. Breakfast is as easy as grabbing a snack bar or muffin—it's convenient and tasty which is exactly what I had in mind.

I decided to take the plunge and sign up. A few days later, my first monthly shipment arrived. The first impression I had of the meals was that they looked delicious. And once I tried them, I realized they were just as tasty as they looked. I could still eat my favorite foods like pizza and mac & cheese, but Nutrisystem's meals are all balanced with complex carbs, protein and fiber without sacrificing taste.

Nutrisystem has a team of experts who do all the work for you—no need for counting calories or keeping up with your food intake. Something I always struggled with is portion control – I used to pile my plate with at least twice as much rice as I needed, and I would end up eating it anyway. I never thought of it as much of a problem until I started eating perfectly portioned meals with Nutrisystem. I noticed that their portions and meals keep me feeling full for longer while providing me with the right nutrients I need.

The major benefit of Nutrisystem was the sheer convenience of it. All my meals were delivered right to my doorstep, with minimal preparation needed. This is just what I needed. Plus, I could still be satisfied while maintaining a healthy lifestyle. My personal favorite is their lasagna—delicious!

I started Nutrisystem a few weeks ago, and it has already saved me so much time cooking. Although I still need my fresh grocery items, it has definitely lessened my trips to the grocery store. Plus, I find myself less tempted to reach for the snacks in my cupboards, as Nutrisystem allows me to still have my comfort foods. I am no longer worried about my weight.

I'd recommend Nutrisystem to anyone who is looking for a convenient way to lose weight while stuck at home.
