How I Support My Immune System

Does everyone remember that Janet Jackson song – What have you done for me lately? Well, that’s what your immune system may be asking of you right now!

In the spirit of Covid-19, also known as the Coronavirus, I’d like to share with you what I do to support my immune system. Some of these things won’t be a surprise to you, while some of them will. Some of you may already be doing some of this but don't realize that it's supporting your immunity - now you can bring your intention to these things. Some of you may judge me for being excessive – that’s fine because you haven’t lived in my body. Some of you may think, I don't have the time or money for that - I say, do what you can.

I take an absolute shit load of supplements.

From Standard Process, I use:

Allerplex 12 per day – This is a multivitamin for people with allergies.

Calcium Lactate 8 per day – This comes from beets and performs an essential immune function in the blood as food for the white blood cells. You don't want sluggish, dumb white blood cells!

Cod Liver Oil 3 per day – A source of fat soluble vitamins, specifically vitamin A which keeps the mucus membranes healthy. Our ancestors had 10 times the amount of fat soluble vitamins that we consume today thanks to our avoidance of animal fat.

Immuplex 4 per day – A multivitamin for the immune system, rich in organs and glands which are largely missing from our diets and contains everything the mucus membrane needs for its proper function.

Sesame Seed Oil 2 per day – This builds the blood.

Zypan 2 per day – Healthy stomach acid is an essential part of your immune system. This supports and restores digestive function.

From MediHerb, I use:
