The Jade Screen Project

Written by Andrew Flower

What is the Jade Screen Project?

Everybody had the same terrible, terrible fatigue. So I just told everybody about the ‘trial’ and everybody… and, and those who signed up… you know, just, just got better. Really, really quickly.”  (JSP service user)

The Jade Screen Project (JSP) offers immune-enhancing and anti-viral herbal formulae for people working in the NHS, care homes, and those providing essential support services, that might reduce the risk and potential severity of infection.

We want to step forward to help those who are on the front line at greater risk of infection from Covid-19, by offering free CHM. We want to give it for free because we feel they deserve this level of support, as they are putting their lives on the line.

The Jade Screen is taken from the name of an ancient formula, which was used to protect people from infection. The formula’s name was derived from the Feng Shui practice of placing a screen made of the jade stone in rooms to protect people from draughts, the reference to jade reflects value and strength, and screen indicates a barrier – together it is considered something both protective and precious to have around the home.

The Jade screen, both the formula and the metaphor of protection, is our inspiration to offer our support to people working in environments where there is an increased risk due to high viral load.

All donations received by the Jade Screen Project go towards funding herbal medicine for our frontline workers.
