Presentation Abstract

Abram Hoffer Memorial Lecture
COVID-19: Nutraceuticals as Adjunctive Therapy

Throughout the history of modern medicine, numerous clinicians and researchers have sought to improve patient outcomes with nutritional intervention. The use of non-patentable molecules in medicine remains highly-controversial, despite our scientific understanding of the physiologic and metabolic roles of vitamins and other essential nutrients.

With the ongoing politicization of COVID-19 treatments and public health recommendations, Dr. Marik and his colleagues have been censored, marginalized, and maligned for their commitment to developing protocols that save lives.

This presentation will review the virology of SARS-CoV-2, the pathophysiology and stages of COVID-19, and provide an overview of nutraceuticals as adjunctive therapy.
