Frequently Asked Questions.


What can you do to protect yourself from SARS-CoV-2 (Corona 2019-NCoV) ?

WHAT IS CORONAVIRUS AND WHO’S AT RISK
Coronaviruses (CoV) are a family of viruses which cause a range of illnesses, ranging from the common cold to severe respiratory conditions. In early January, a new strain of coronavirus (2019-nCoV) was identified as the cause of several cases of pneumonia in Wuhan, China, and it has since spread worldwide. It has been reported that those with 2019-nCoV experience mild to severe respiratory issues, starting with a fever, cough, and shortness of breath.

So how can we protect ourselves?
SELF-CARE ACTION PLAN FOR SUPPORTING YOUR IMMUNITY
Keep your immune system nourished with the nutrients it requires to function properly, chiefly those with general anti-viral properties such as beta-glucans, zinc, lysine, and vitamin A, C and D. Consider supplementing them on a daily basis from a therapeutic multinutrient to work on prevention, coupled with a targeted immune complex if you start to feel below par which provides these nutrients at a higher dose for extra support. For instance, look for a complex providing elderberry, since preliminary in vitro research has revealed its strong inhibitory effect on a strain of human coronavirus (HCoV-NL63) and a strain of pathogenic coronavirus found in chickens (e.g. Immune Intensive sachet email me now to order this amazing high potency immune support with vitamins A,C,D, plus Beta Glucans, Sage and Elderberry for £16.80 + £2.95 p&p for 7 sachets).
It is worth taking vitamin C at a high dose, short-term. Up to 6-8g per day can reduce the symptoms of the common cold, and a high dose may be protective against other respiratory issues, including pneumonia. Studies in animals have even shown that vitamin C may be effective against certain strains of coronavirus! It is easiest to achieve a high dose of vitamin C using a powdered vitamin C product. Since it is a water-soluble nutrient, it is advisable to spread this dosage over the course of the day (rather than taken all in one go) to support absorption and help maintain a steady supply of vitamin C in the bloodstream. Be careful with high dose vitamin C if you are on medication (especially anticoagulants) or have a history of kidney stones. Furthermore, if you are under medical supervision, please consult a health professional before supplementing.
Optimise your vitamin D status guided by a vitamin D test. We are all prone to sub-optimal vitamin D levels during winter and the last thing we need is something as basic as this increasing our infection risk. Increase your intake of vitamin D rich foods and contact me for tailored advice. Adults and children can start by taking a conservative daily dose of 1000 IU and 400 IU vitamin D3 respectively.
Support the resilience of the gut to infection by increasing your intake of prebiotics (the fibre) and probiotics (the good bacteria), alongside supportive micronutrients, notably vitamin A and vitamin D. Enjoy foods such as onions, garlic, leeks, Jerusalem artichoke, raw sauerkraut, and kefir on a daily basis. To help you reach a therapeutic dosage, consider supplementing with prebiotics and well-researched human strains of beneficial bacteria, such as Lactobacillus acidophilus, Bifidobacterium lactis, and Bifidobacterium bifidum. The LAB4 combination can stave off intestinal pathogenic overgrowth and support the barrier function of the gut wall, which can then have a positive knock-on impact on the overall strength of our immune system.
Prioritise sleep and relaxation. Sleep is the opportunity for our body to ‘rest and repair’ and is just as important as nutrition when looking to strengthen our immune system. Strikingly, research has shown that those with less than 7 hours sleep per night were up to 3x more likely to develop the common cold after experimental exposure to rhinovirus than those with more than or equal to 8 hours sleep per night. Therefore, aim for 8 hours or more uninterrupted sleep per night with the help of an eye mask, ear plugs, increased intake of calming nutrients such as magnesium, and meditation before bed, to facilitate the protective effect of sleep on our immune defences. Given the anxiety that we are prone to feel when it comes to the current coronavirus outbreak, this recommendation could not be more important!
Watch your sugar and alcohol intake. Try to choose healthier alternatives, such as dark chocolate, nuts, and non-alcoholic drinks (e.g. kombucha), since both can have a draining impact on our immunity.

All of the above nutrients are important for children’s immunity too, but at a dose that’s appropriate for their use. Therefore, use a product that’s been specifically formulated for children, or contact me for further guidance.

How do I know that homeopathy will help me with my health generally?

Homeopathy is a form of medicine that was originated by a german doctor with the aim of a safe and gentle restoration of health.

It has been used to successfully treat millions of patients throughout the world for all health issues for more than 200 years.

In my experience almost all patients improve significantly - for longstanding conditions this may require perseverance, in other cases relief can occur very quickly.

How much does homeopathic treatment cost?

The first homeopathic consultation lasts one hour and costs £65. All homeopathic remedies prescribed are included.
Follow up consultations last up to half an hour and cost £45 including homeopathic remedies.
Childrens’ follow up consultations cost £30 including homeopathic remedies.
(skype consultations cost £65/£45 and £30 for children's follow up appointments).

Can I have a home visit?

Yes. Normally this would cost more, to cover the extra time and travel expenses. (These are suspended at present).

However a lot of patients are happy to have follow up consultations by telephone, supplemented if desired by email or letter. In these cases I will do the initial home visit anywhere in East Sussex for the standard charge of £65. Telephone follow-ups are also charged at the standard rate for follow-ups (£45). Outside of East Sussex, the initial consultation fee for a home visit is by negotiation, with subsequent telephone follow-ups costing £45.

Laboratory testing of samples costs from £113 upwards depending on tests required.
