With lockdown eased, many people in the UK can breathe a sigh of relief and live freely again. However, as we've seen, new variants of COVID and sole reliance on vaccinations are causing havoc in other parts of the world. According to experts, it's only a matter of time before these variants and their likely threats reach the UK. 

Instead of resorting to another economically harmful lockdown that will further our mental health decline, or to "letting thousands die" as Boris so eloquently said (out of sheer exhaustion, I'm sure), I'm asking health officials, MPs, and the NHS Executive Group to consider the vast amount of scientific research and studies done on the extraordinary results of herbalism treatments on COVID patients (see literature list below). 

Incorporating Natural Herbal Medicine (NHM) with Western medicine in the treatment of COVID-19 can reduce hospital stays significantly (12), as seen in one study, reducing clinical symptoms up to 60% (2). In another study, the outcomes of combined therapy were 45% more favourable than modern medicine alone (4). 

By allowing herbalism to help in this global fight, alongside modern medicine, we will be able to achieve the following:

1. Significantly reduce the amount of COVID patients requiring emergency treatments or ICU stays by improving clinical symptoms (up to 60%) (2)

2. Avoid additional lockdowns that have resulted in economic devastation and a global mental health emergency (9)

3. Support our NHS workers who have been suffering the mental and physical consequences of working under the weight of a crippled healthcare system (11)

4. Increase overall health and wellbeing of the population (6)

5. Prevent further pandemics from happening in the future by way of raising awareness around the necessity for biodiversity conservation (10)

We need all the help we can get.

By working alongside qualified herbalists, using treatments that have been proven to strengthen our systems for centuries, and new combinations that have been proven to effectively treat COVID patients, reduce deaths and hospital stays, we can get ahead of this virus as a stronger, healthier, and more unified country. 

By standing as a global leader for a more resilient healthcare system, we can help prevent future catastrophic healthcare system events, begin repairing the issues within our current system and create a more hopeful future for us all.
