COVID-19 or simply a cold.”

Marylebone, have produced a report for their clients on things to do
that gives protection against viruses in general.
programmes are focused on boosting the body's immune system and are
bespoke to each client, combining diet, sleep, exercise with
supplements like nootropics. Nothing so vulgar as a price list on
their website, but you can enquire about this at
