A new Frontline Immune Support Team has been launched to provide quality, free, immune support to frontline NHS staff treating Covid-19 patients; the initiative was founded by natural healthcare practitioner, Charlotte Pulver. Packs containing vitamin C, D , zinc and other nutrient have been sent out to over 500 staff so far but further distribution depends on crowdfunding. So please click to the site and give whatever you can to support further distribution. Chinese hospital staff currently receive 1-2 grams of vitamin C to boost their immune defence.
Dr Alex Mentzer, Infectious Disease Registrar at John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford, said: ‘As an Infectious disease doctor married to a nutritional therapist, I’m very aware of the importance of looking after my body during times of stress. For the past six weeks I’ve worked relentlessly with constant demands on my physical and mental state. I don’t think I could have coped without the support of my wife’s nutritious meals and the Frontline Immune Support Team’s valuable supplements. They have helped me build the resilience I needed to get through this challenging time. As lockdown measures are slowly relaxed, it certainly isn’t over for us frontline workers. We need every source of support we can be given now more than ever. Thank you Frontline Immune Support Team.’’
