Supplemental Building Blocks to Create a Healthy Immune System

It is not necessary to take all of these.
Just starting with a multi-vitamin, vitamin D3, vitamin C, zinc, and melatonin is a great start.
  • Melatonin… Dose 3 mg to 10 mg per day. Preferably slow release. But not necessary. Take at bedtime. Melatonin has been used years to help treat breast cancer with 20 mg dose. It blocks inflammatory cytokines.
  • Vitamin C… 3,000 mg to 6,000 mg per day in divided doses. Necessary for the growth, development and repair of all body tissues. It’s involved in many body functions, including formation of collagen, absorption of iron, the immune system, wound healing, and the maintenance of cartilage, bones, and teeth.
  • Vitamin A… 5,000 iu to 10,000 iu per day in palmitate form. Supports healthy vision, bones and immune system.
  • Vitamin D… 1,000 – 2,000 iu per day if you do not know your level. 5,000 – 10,000 iu per day if you know your level and are working with a practitioner. Helps with absorption of Calcium and Phosphorus. Helps facilitate a health immune system.
  • Iodine… 6.25 mg – 12 mg three days per week. There is no virus, bacteria, or pathogen that has resistance to iodine.
  • Zinc… up to 30 mg daily. Use chelated Zinc as it is absorbed better. Zinc protects the body from viral damage.
  • Quercetin… 300 mg to 500 mg twice daily. Blocks viral replication and chaperones Zinc into viral cell and destroys the virus.
  • Elderberry… use a product that has standardized dosing. Elderberry blocks replication of viral cells.
  • Curcumin… 300 mg to 600 mg two to three time daily. Blocks inflammatory activity in lungs, heart and kidneys. Take a high quality product for best results.
  • N-acetyl-cysteine (NAC)… 600 mg daily or twice daily. This amino acid protects the lung tissue. It is extremely important for liver detoxing pathways.

Prevention 101:

  • Get plenty of restful sleep. Your immune system requires large amounts of energy, so it depends on adequate sleep to function at full capacity. Aim for a minimum of 7-8 hours of quality restful sleep each night, preferably at least 90 minutes of both deep sleep and REM.
  • Reduce stress. Emotional stress not only increases inflammation, but it also decreases your immune system. Taking steps to minimize stress such as meditation or exercise can go a long way in keeping your immune system healthy.
  • Eating a nutrient-dense diet.This is one of the best ways to support your immune health. It is important that you eliminate refined sugar, refined oils, artificial ingredients, processed foods, and junk food. Instead, focus on a diet that’s rich in greens, vegetables, fermented foods, fruits, and healthy fats.
  • Stay hydrated. Did you know that staying hydrated can improve your oxygen flow, flushing out harmful toxins? It also helps your digestion run more efficiently and keeps your eyes and mouth wet, blocking contaminants that can cause infection.
