ISTANBUL (TR) - Studies continue for the definitive treatment of the coronavirus epidemic, which spread all over the world after China and caused the death of 712 thousand people worldwide. According to data shared by the World Health Organization (WHO), a total of 165 vaccine studies are being conducted in more than ten countries. Turkey is also among these countries. In addition to vaccination studies, statements are made by experts in traditional and complementary medicine practices. Traditional and complementary medicine specialist Dr. Turanşah Tümer said: "Research shows that vitamin C, which strengthens the immune system and reduces the risk of getting sick, helps Covid-19 patients recover faster when given in high doses." He also stated that strengthening the immune system with ozone therapy and glutathione supplements gave similar positive responses.

"Immunity enhancing supplements respond positively in treatment"

Pointing out that there is a lot of information about coronavirus treatment, but a certain type of treatment is not specified, Dr Turanşah Tümer said, “Although the coronavirus has not yet achieved a definitive treatment point, alternative treatment methods that strengthen the body resistance and immune system have been determined against Covid-19 and many similar chronic diseases. Likewise, we can say that our patients, for whom we applied high dose vitamin C, ozone therapy and glutathione applications before the pandemic period, survived this period with less damage. It is possible to say that the body responds faster and more positively to the treatments during and after the disease stage, especially with the supplementary mixtures that strengthen the immune system. He spoke in the form.

"Foods containing vitamin C should be consumed"

Drawing attention to the fact that vitamin C should be taken into the body daily in addition to its effects on coronavirus treatment, Dr Turanşah Tümer said, “Vitamin C, which is an important antioxidant and has protective properties against many chronic diseases, especially cardiovascular diseases. However, since it is not stored in the body, it must be consumed every day as the body needs. At this point, it is recommended that foods that are sources of vitamin C should be included in the daily diet plan. Orange, tangerine, grapefruit, kiwi, pineapple, strawberry, lemon, tomato, red and green pepper, arugula, parsley, lettuce, fresh rosehip, spinach, broccoli and cabbage should be consumed regularly as major sources of vitamin C. ”
