Antiviral and Immune Support
It is becoming increasingly more difficult (if not impossible) for us to get any type of immune-supportive nutrients or supplements to make available for our patients.
Like many of you, we have had to draw upon other resources and creative avenues to make due. Fortunately, we have been able to formulate an anti-viral and immune support tincture, which is based on the work of Stephen Buhner, a world-renowned herbalist and author.
This tincture consists of Chinese Skullcap, Licorice root, Rhodiola, Japanese knotweed, and Red Sage/Dan shen, and Poke Root.
In general, this herbal concoction has anti-viral properties, protects and blocks viral attachment to ACE-2 linkages, modulates cytokine or inflammatory reactions, protects cells from hypoxia (oxygen deprivation), reduces autoimmunity, protects the spleen and lymph system, and increases T cell counts*.
There are many herbs that have great anti-viral and immune-supportive properties. However, we felt like this herbal combination covered as many different phases of an active viral infection as possible. It was also inspired by a trusted source.
While this formula is generally safe for most people, please consult with your primary care physician before taking. It is not safe during pregnancy or lactation. It is contraindicated in cases of liver and kidney disease, as well as for people with lymphocytic leukemia, as it can increase white blood cell counts. Caution is also advised for people with hypertension and/or taking stimulant laxatives, thiazide diuretics, spironolactone, amiloride, hydrocortisone therapy, or undergoing insulin therapy.
If you are interested in purchasing this herbal anti-viral tincture, please call Cameron Wellness Center, at 801-486-4226. The price ranges from $19 for 1 ounces, $38 for 2 ounces, to $76 for 4 ounces. The suggested dosing is 1-2 dropperfuls up to three times daily.
