Dear patients and friends,
I am currently offering short consults for herbal prescriptions for immune system support. There is some evidence that certain Chinese herbs may support immune-strengthening and immune-regulating effects such as Astragalus and Andrographis (1,2,3,4,5,6,7), and that might help with an anti-viral response such as Isatis (8,9,10,11,12).
Please contact me through the Contacts section or call my practices directly to arrange for a 15-minute appointment. Please do not come to the clinic if you are currently feeling cold/flu-like symptoms. A phone or video appointment can be arranged instead.
We are currently experiencing a Coronavirus pandemic and there is currently no cure for this illness, only symptomatic treatment.
If you are experiencing symptoms such as fever, sore throat, tiredness, cough, shortness of breath; or other flu/cold-like symptoms you must contact your GP immediately, preferably by a phone call rather than a personal visit.
You can also call the Coronavirus Information Helpline at 1800 020 080.
These are some online resources placed by the Australian Government that can give you more information regarding action and prevention:
