Here is a great list of supplements to use during the corona virus outbreak. It is from Andy himself. Posted here with the permission of Joann Loos. Thank you Joann!

During the 2003 SARS scare, Andy (Andrew Hall Cutler) gave a list of supplements to help control viruses. These supplements should work for the corona virus as well as general colds and flus. (These are adult doses. To convert to children’s doses, divide by 140 and multiply by the child’s weight.)


· Echinacea: 200-400 mg, 5 days per month

· Astragalus: 300-500 mg, a different 5 days per month than echinacea
