Flu Fighters

My new book explains why some people get really sick, even die from flu, while others don’t? I used the first two weeks of ‘lockdown’ to write exactly what works - how to win the cold war and boost your immunity with natural non-toxic nutrients.

Colds and flu, including COVID-19, are viral diseases that a healthy immune system should be able to fight off with natural immunity. But what is a healthy immune system and how can you promote your own immune power with diet and nutrients?

What the book covers

This book explains:

  • How viruses work and where are their weaknesses
  • Why animals that make vitamin C rarely succumb to flu or colds.
  • The truth about vitamin C and how to use it when you’re infected.
  • How black elderberry blocks viral replication.
  • Why vitamin D levels crash in winter to make us more susceptible.
  • Other critical immune support nutrients from selenium to zinc.
  • How intravenous vitamin C saves lives in those with respiratory distress.

You’ll also discover how to restore and maintain a healthy immune system when not infected, complete with recipes for foods and drinks, and what to eat, drink and supplement when you are under attack to shorten duration and severity of colds and flu.

Zero deaths in ICU with vitamin C - you have to see, and share the film below. It shows you the direct link between the stress hormone cortisol and vitamin C and gives the most essential clue to why people are dying from the virus. A group of top critical care specialists, doctors and professors, working in top US hospitals say ‘we’ve cracked the COVID code.’ I spoke to two: Professor Paul Marik at East Virginia Medical School and Dr Joseph Varon, Clinical Professor of Medicine, running the ICU in Houston Hospital, Texas. They have been given intravenous vitamin C with cortisone. Dr Marik had treated 30 patients in ICU with this combo and Dr Varon had treated 24. How many deaths? It is looking like there is no need to die from COVID-19 with the right treatment. This is very important since the current mortality rate in the UK, once in ICU on a ventilator, is 66.7%.

“This book should be in the hands of every ICU team fighting COVID-19 and other infections. 

Informative, well-written, and research-backed. It shows you how to take charge of your own immunity in the midst of this deadly world-wide pandemic.”

Dr Cass, MD, Los Angeles, USA

“This expert deep dive into the inner workings of vitamin C explains why claims that it is a natural defender against viruses such as COVID-19 make perfect sense.”

The FLU FIGHTER podcast series supports new book FLU FIGHTERS. There is so much fake information going around about vitamin C and COVID-19 so I’ve gone to the top to interview experts in my FLU FIGHTERS podcast series to tell you the truth about the clinical trials.

Vitamin C Trials in China: Combatting the Virus

Chinese hospitals have decreased deaths and increased survival. Why? With three trials under way, and a mandate from the Shanghai Medical Board to treat COVID-19 patients in ICU with high dose vitamin C, China are leading the way in effective treatment of respiratory distress. The first 50 preliminary cases show no deaths, no safety issues and faster recovery. I talk to Dr Cheng, in Shanghai, about the trials and what’s happening in hospitals in Wuhan.

How Vitamin C Reverses Respiratory Diseases: The Mechanism

How does vitamin C work to reverse acute respiratory distress - the life threatening syndrome that’s claiming lives? A new theory, proposed by research biochemist, Doris Loh from Hong Kong, explains close up how vitamin C works to effect recovery. We’ll learn about the different types of vitamin C, the doses that make a difference, the co-factor nutrients that help vitamin C restore your immunity and what to do if COVID-19 strikes you.

What We Know about Vitamin C and Infections: 60 Years of Science

Vitamin C is the most researched vitamin, with 60 years of evidence relating to colds, flu and other infections. An increasing body of evidence is showing that it can speed up recovery from pneumonia, shorten severity and duration of infections, as well as reducing need for ventilators and ICU care. At the forefront of razor sharp analysis of the scientific evidence for the past 40 years is Professor Harri Hemila, from the Department of Public Health at the University of Helsinki in Finland.

The Sharp End of Treatment - How Intravenous Vitamin C is Saving Lives

I’m going to be looking at the sharp end of viral infections and lung damage, talking to Dr Paul Marik, Professor of Critical Care Medicine at East Virginia Medical School in the US, Dr Anton in South Africa using intravenous vitamin C in lung disease, and Dr Shirley McIlvenny, formerly a UK GP now using intravenous and high dose vitamin C, and other nutrients to keep you healthy, now practising in Australia.

Vitamin C and the Importance for Your Immune Health and Beyond

I’m going to be joined by a man every nutritional therapist will know – Dr Thomas Levy, who wrote the book -more a compendium - called Curing The Incurable. It documents every study, be in the lab on cells, or in the clinic on people, on every viral and bacterial and infectious disease ever treated by vitamin C, going all the way back to the 40’s. With 80 years of research and 25 years of clinical practice using high dose oral and intravenous vitamin C, I can think of no-one better to conclude our first series of podcasts focusing on vitamin C and its potential for health, both for this pandemic and beyond.
