Why do some people get really sick, even die from flu, while others don’t? 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?
- 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.

You’ll also learn 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.
Also available as Kindle E-Book from Amazon.
What the Experts Say:
“Don’t read this book if you want someone else to think for you. Do read this book if you want to think for yourself. If you were in any doubt about media propaganda or bias, this book arms you with the facts to make the choice for yourself and your family. The information in this book is just what we ALL need right now. Patrick shows us the overwhelming truth about what these simple, inexpensive but nonetheless essential nutrients can do for supporting our immunity. But it’s not just about a single vitamin. You’ll learn it’s about a team of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants & plant extracts with which we have evolved to provide synergistic immune support and to combat viral infections. What a difference they make!”

“This expert deep dive into the inner workings of vitamin C explains why claims it is a natural defender against viruses such as COVID-19 make perfect sense. They have been long dismissed as quackery. Time for ill-informed sceptics to line up for humble pie. Listening out for sound of trucks piled with vitamin C to start trundling to hospitals around the country.”
Jerome Burne, award-winning medical journalist
