Natural Respiratory Product Offering Back to School Support in Response to COVID-19
By: Natures Nurse International
"We are saying that Respigard® could help improve immune defenses, along with other supplements, which could provide some protection against COVID-19 and possibly reduce the severity of symptoms; based on pre-clinical studies and anecdotal clinical observations from our practices," said Patricia Gerbarg, MD, Assistant Professor, New York College of Medicine, and Richard Brown, MD, Associate Professor, Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons.
"MSNBC reported on July 16, 2020 that 31% of children tested positive for COVID-19 in Florida so the recommendation's timing is particularly critical with our children going back to school soon," said Dr. Anders. "We want to ensure parents that there are natural solutions for concerned families and the Respigard® products have actually been created for educators by educators," Dr. Anders, added. Dr. Anders is an educational psychologist who comes from a long line of teachers, principals and professors; many of whom have spent years of volunteer research and development efforts to bring Respigard® into the market as a safe, reliable choice for families.
"Respigard® works to naturally stimulate an appropriate immune response, similar to the vaccines scientists are working on," said Dr. Anders. "However, many people have expressed concern over taking a rushed vaccine that was created in a lab," he added.
What's happening with COVID-19 is that the person drowns in their own fluids, as well as losing other organ function caused by inflammation and blood clotting reactions. According to Dr. Brown, Associate Professor, Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons, Respigard® is not only sustainably derived from the red mangrove tree of Fiji, it has been used for hundreds of years there for respiratory and skin infections. He reported to an audience at the Semel Institue at UCLA that the red mangrove extract has at least 27 compounds which are anti-viral, anti-inflammatory and reduce pain. Many of them are flavonols such as Quercitin and Kaempferol.*
The original Nature's Nurse companies (Nature's Nurse International, Inc. USA, and Nature's Nurse Fiji, Pte.), were founded by Dr. Ted Anders and Resina Koroi of Fiji. The newest member of the corporate family, Nature's Nurse Honduras, SPA was recently co-founded with Carolina Batres of Tegucigalpa. The companies conduct sustainable harvests, and as substantially women-owned companies, they are committed to developing women leaders as well as supporting indigenous people through coordination with anti-poverty and social justice initiatives. The sustainable harvest practices of the red mangrove resource serves to repair and sustain coastal shoreline environments.
The company has product available and is carried in leading pharmacies in Manhattan and available online at www.NaturesNurse.com.
Of Interest to First Coast History Teachers and Students: The product research and development team for Nature's Nurse is located in Asheville, NC on the grounds of the University of North Carolina Arboretum where it received years of guidance and support by Bent Creek Institute (BCI). The founding chairman of BCI is the grandson of George Vanderbilt who created the Biltmore Estate. Cornelius Vanderbilt (Sonny) Whitney, who co-founded Marineland in Flagler County, Fla. and who funded the land and construction costs for The Whitney Laboratory for Marine Bioscience, was a cousin to one of the Nature's Nurse original visionary investors, William Elmhirst (a Whitney). William's mother, Dorothy Whitney Elmhirst, Sonny's aunt, had moved to England from New York prior to WWII. When the Nazis began bombing during the war, she sent her children to stay with Sonny and other cousins in The Hamptons on Long Island. Dr. Anders met William while serving as a business development consultant to leading entrepreneurs in the UK. They became colleagues and friends focused on Nature's Nurse and William's philanthropic endeavors focused on the environmental theme: "The World Restored, Note Destroyed."
Dr. Anders co-authored a book with Resina Koroi, entitled Breath of Life; detailing the vital role of Respigard's main ingredient red mangroves for human and planetary health. The foreword was written by Jean-Michel Cousteau, the famous French oceanographic explorer, environmentalist, educator, and film producer.
