According to Melania, she opted for vitamins and healthy foods to fight off the disease. She also received medical assistance from White House physicians.
In her words:
"I experienced body aches, a cough and headaches, and felt extremely tired most of the time. I chose to go a more natural route in terms of medicine, opting more for vitamins and healthy food.
We had wonderful caretakers around us and we will be forever grateful for the medical care and professional discretion we received."
