  • Genomics, Sambucas, and Andrographis – COVID-19

In addition to our review of the role of genomics as it relates to a person’s response to coronavirus infection, Dr. Hausman-Cohen reveals some very interesting data about the role of two natural supplements, Sambucas ­and Andrographis, in immunity as well as viral infections specifically.
