Having a strong, functioning immune system is essential to regaining health or remaining healthy. When challenged with chronic illness; such as, Lyme, mold, or virus, it becomes critical for healing to restore and support your immune system.
When years of chronic infection overtake the body’s defenses it can take a very long time to re-modulate the immune system. Lifestyle changes are essential. You can modify your dietary intake in such a way that it will support healing. What this means is eliminating all GMO, soy, gluten, most diary, and processed foods; eating as much organic food as possible, eating healthy fats such as avocado oil, coconut oil, olive oil and organic butter. With chronic illness it is important to pace activities with frequent rest through-out the day. If are you able to exercise, it is better to do a little more frequently, than to push yourself too aggressively. Listen to your body, and it will tell you what it needs and what it can handle.

Supplements that support the immune system are an additional tool that compliment lifestyle changes. These include mushrooms (Cordyceps, Maitake, Reshi, Turkey Tail and more), which have been used for thousands of years. Hydrosol silver, like Argentyn 23, not only re-modulates and supports healthy functioning of the immune system; it eliminates many of the agents responsible for the chronic condition. Curcumin, Japanese Knotweed (the best source of Resveratrol), and Chinese Skullcap are some of my favorite herbs to support the immune system. Like silver, herbs do more than this. They decrease inflammation, support the liver, and eliminate many different infectious bacteria, virus, parasites, and fungus.

When you take these products it is important to go slow and consult with someone who knows what they are doing and can guide you in taking and reaching optimal doses. If you take too much too soon, you will feel worse than when you started. This is where a practitioner can help. We all have our favorite products to use. I use the ones I recommend as I see lab values change as a result of taking these supplements.
Some of the products I recommend can only be purchased through me as your clinician, as the companies understand how powerful their effects can be and feel strongly that professional guidance is important. Other products can be purchased directly through my store. I always offer a 10% discount and if you spend more than $49.00 shipping is free.
If you need a lower-cost consult I am available. In this capacity I do not prescribe pharmaceuticals or order lab tests which you can get through your primary provider. I do make recommendations about these however. If you would like to schedule an appointment contact me below!
