Isolation is an effective anti-viral measure but we shall always have some human contact (thank goodness!) and also the chance of picking up Covid-19. It’s important we look after ourselves in all ways during this coronavirus pandemic.

Two months ago I told you that we had researched an ‘immune boosting package’ so giving you details now of 2 ingredients you may not recognize -.I’ll explain more now. Supplements: e.g. vitamin C 2G day, Zinc 30mg, are important as they form the building blocks of our cells and immune system that fight off coronavirus.
Herbs capture facets of the sun’s light energy, converting it to a chemical that can boost our health. (For example aspirin was developed from the bark of the willow tree) All our food potency comes through the alchemy of photosynthesis, light energy converted to chemical. Here are two plants that have been studied in effectiveness in infection. Both of those are present in our immune boosting package. Click here for more details
“The antiviral activity of elderberry on viral disease is strongest when used in pre-treatment, during infection and post-infection, rather than when used solely during infection. The study confirmed that elderberry exerts its antiviral activity on influenza through a number of mechanisms of action, including suppressing the entry of the virus into cell, modulating the post-infectious phase, and preventing viral transmission to other cells. Elderberry also upregulates IL-6, IL-8 and TNF, suggesting an indirect effect on viral immune response in the body. Interestingly, elderberry was shown to have this effect but not its major bioactive compound, cyanidin 3-glucoside.”
Astragalus (Huang Qi) with sweet taste and purple flowers, for centuries have been used by practitioners of Chinese medicine for immunity support. Effective in viral illness, it is an ‘adaptogenic’ immune regulating herb. Studies have shown it can increase your body’s production of white blood cells, which are the cells of your immune system responsible for preventing viral infection. Also, astragalus root has been shown to help kill bacteria and viruses. There are three key components that work when using Astragalus: flavonoids, saponins, and polysaccharides. These are each phytochemical – biologically active compounds found only in plants. They serve as anti-oxidant, anti-viral, anti-microbial, and anti-inflammatory in nature. What more can we want?! (It is part of the monthly immune boosting package, 1000mg daily as prevention.)
These herbs and supplements are not meant to be taken singly but as a combination, to enhance effectiveness.
Package 1: PREVENTION IMMUNE MODULATING PACKAGE – HK$950
- 1 month supply of research-backed supplements. 4 capsules daily, with vitamin/mineral powder.
- Includes concentrated vitamin powder, herbal extracts to support your immune system to fight back against infection and a potentized combination aimed for the healthy production of immune cells.
- Our nutraceuticals are scientifically proven to aid respiratory cell linings. They will also combat viral effects of causing ‘oxidative stress’ – i.e. contributing to cellular damage and disease progression. Many of these package constituents are powerful anti-oxidants.
- Potentized nutriceuticals combination aimed at viruses, also healthy production of immune cells.
Package 2: VIRUS TREATMENT PACKAGE – HK$2,900

- Combination herbal capsules – extracts to actively fight infection – 4 per day.
IV VITAMIN C INFORMATION
As a doctor, I have always had great success with high dose vitamin c in cases of influenza, and acute viruses such as shingles.
Studies show IV Vitamin C at sufficiently high doses can prevent viral disease and greatly speed recovery from an acute viral infection. Given intravenously it gets straight into your system, also you can’t take more than 2000-3000mg (2-3G) orally without it causing gastric upset.
Harvard -Edu make it clear that after taking 1000mg orally only 50% of vitamin C gets absorbed anyway!
Of recent note, cutting edge therapists in New York, US epicentre of coronavirus, have shown success using IV vitamin C. Pulmonoligist Ansrew Weber has been using it in ICU……https://nypost.com/
Last month the Chinese also published their success stories i treating Covid-19 many article on this success, one here https://www.medicinenet.
For Years, IV Vitamin C has been shown to:
- Reduce inflammatory response
- Increase helper immune cells
- Increase in killer T cells
- Boost antioxidant levels in the body
Historical Background: Thousands of trials have been done on intravenous vitamin C, in the beginning by the exceptional Dr. Fred R. Klenner in the U.S. He and other physicians and researchers worked in medicine from the 1930s to the 1970s. They reported successful treatment of many viruses, including polio, diphtheria, herpes zoster, herpes simplex, chicken pox, influenza, measles, mumps, and viral pneumonia with injections of large doses of vitamin C. “The results,” he wrote, “which we have reported in virus diseases using vitamin C as the antibiotic may seem fantastic.”
More recently, Lineus Pauling, Nobel prize winner, is famous for advocating high doses as effective in all viral and other illness.
Our supplements are a combination of over 10 products proven to work together in viral infection. Our simple 1-month package will help boost different phases of the immune system as well as stopping viruses actually acting on cells. Package details LINK
HOW THE SUPPLEMENTS WORK:
1. Stop viruses attaching to your respiratory (nose/throat) cell wall
In our package a number of number of components do this – as an example, herbal Sambucus nigra extract has been shown in trials to stop cold viruses attaching to cell walls. Without attachment they can’t enter cells and cause disease.
2. Stop viruses multiplying
Nutraceuticals such as the mineral zinc have been shown to not only to help prevent viral infection but also stop viral replication in the body.
The herb hypericum has been shown to be actively antiviral by inhibiting enzymes in viral replication.
3. Help boost your immune system
Vitamin C, zinc and magnesium are involved in thousands of enzyme and immune processes. As co-factors with the herbal extracts, they are even more powerful
We have chosen only a handful of studies here – many more online!!
