Australian supermodel Miranda Kerr is getting slammed on social media for sharing "dangerous" and "irresponsible" health advice about coronavirus from "medical medium" Anthony William.

Anthony believes he has "the unique ability to converse with Spirit of Compassion who provide him with extraordinarily accurate health information that’s often far ahead of its time" according to his website.

He also describes himself as the "originator of the Global Celery Juice Movement" which he believes is the cure to a number of health issues including "digestive issues, skin conditions, migraines, fatigue, autoimmune illnesses" among others.

Taking to Instagram on Sunday, Miranda shared an image of Anthony's Virus Protection download from his website. She wrote, "Great info to help people at this time."

Fans were quick to comment on the post asking the mum-of-three to use her influence for better and not to spread misinformation.

British doctor Joshua Wolrich commented on the post, "ABSOLUTELY NOT. Do better with your influence. This ‘virus protection’ guide is full of unscientific nonsense that has ZERO medical validity.

"Celery juice doesn't fight viral infections, nor does any of the rest of the advice in this guide. Open your eyes people. Misinformation is dangerous. Stop spreading it.”

One follower wrote, "So much misinformation here. How dangerous that someone with such a large platform would think to share this with so many."

Another added: "Please don’t share information when you’re not qualified to do so (especially from someone who REALLY isn’t qualified to do so). The information you’re sharing isn’t in any way valid and to anyone who reads this, IT WILL NOT PROTECT YOU FROM THE VIRUS. Please take it down."

Someone else said: "This is a man who claims, that he gets his knowledge from spirits of the future... this is complete and utter bulls**t. Please don’t spread this kind of misinformation. You have a huge following - even though you might mean well, this is harmful advice."

Yet another follower wrote, "This is dangerously false information."

Anthony shared the guide to his own Instagram account as well, writing, “In my new Free Report 'Virus Protection', I offer suggestions for how you can help build up your immune system so you can fight off anything you might be exposed to,” he captioned a post with.

“I also give you healing information and tools, such as antiviral foods, antiviral herbs and supplements, and antiviral practices, that can help you recover more quickly and effectively from anything you might contract.”

The actual guide focuses on certain foods that you should either avoid or eat.

Anthony writes that eggs are "the number one food viruses like to feed on", he also adds that viruses also love to eat "dairy products such as milk, cheese, butter, yogurt, kefir, and other forms of dairy; gluten; and corn.”

The guide reads, “If these foods are in your diet, it becomes very difficult to combat viruses."

"If you don’t want to remove all these foods at once, you can start protecting yourself more by removing one or two at a time and continuing to remove the rest as you’re able or if you become sick.”

According to Dr Wolrich, who spoke about the guide on his own Instagram Stories, the only piece of useful information is right at the end of the guide where Anthony writes about the importance of washing your hands, not touching your face, not shaking hands, and using hand sanitiser.

However, Dr Wolrich did add: "Although, that is a good thing that it's there at the end. Actually, ironically... When you put misinformation right next to truth, it actually makes the misinformation more believable. So, it doesn't get a pass."
