These are a few of my favorite things

I've written previously about the various ways in which we killed parasites (deworming ourselves being the thing that brought us lasting recovery). But there are many supplements that we took (and still take) that boosted our immune systems and/or filled us with healing nutrition. Here are my top three of those supplements.

1. Out of all the supplements we've tried, this is my number one thing I won't be without: 

(I'm sending the amazon links because the customer review feature is wonderful for learning more about a product.)

This multi-vitamin is made from fruits and veggies so the body recognizes the contents and utilizes them completely (unlike synthetic vitamins). The "plus detox" part of the name refers to the ingredient chlorella, which binds up and eliminates things floating around in the body that don't belong there. Detox is just a polite word for "it will make you poop," so don't be surprised by that. 

2. Restore4Life is my second-favorite-supplement: 

In a nutshell, Restore4Life is soil microbes that we are missing because of modern farming practices; those microbes are essential to cell communication. When cell communication breaks down (between gate-keeper cells in the gut) debris leaves the gut and enters the bloodstream, keeping the immune system on a constant slow simmer as it tries to get rid of the debris. To learn more about this, and to see some really good research and development, check out Dr. Zach Bush (he has also been a cancer researcher) on youtube. Here's a link to one of his videos talking the research behind this product:

3. Thirdly, TruNiagen . . . 

Here is an article explaining what this supplement is and what it does (which, in a nutshell, is: repairs damaged mitochondria). Even though I found this product late in my recovery, I could still tell it gave me an increase in  energy from the first day I started taking it. Your body is longing for this product.

Dear Dr. Stewart

This is a response to a comment from a doctor friend of mine who has seen the good side of vaccinations throughout his career and quickly defends them whenever they are questioned. I thought it was worth preserving and life has been so hectic I haven't made a new post in too long; so I'm saving this here.

Carolyn Lockhart Williams I know I sound like a kook and I never thought I would be a person who questioned vaccines. But I don't think I am the extremist in this debate; I am somewhere in the middle wondering what are the unintended consequences of the sheer number of vaccines that are currently on the standard schedule. I am in a Lyme disease FB group that has nearly 18,000 members and it could be said that what all of us on there really suffer from is damaged immune systems. It's not that we have "Lyme disease," which sounds like a single infection. What we actually find, when we finally get appropriate testing, is that we have 8 or 10 infections including reactivated viruses, mold, nematodes, fungus/yeast/candida. And Stewart, being in this Lyme group is like watching the beginning of the zombie apocalypse. These are some mangled people, suffering seizures, passing out, bed and/or wheelchair bound. Before I became a member, I HAD NO IDEA there were so many severely chronically ill people. But after finding out, and after frantically researching because my son was so sick, I couldn't escape what was staring me in the face: something is really wrong with our immune systems. They don't work anymore. We are born and raised in a chemical stew unknown to previous generations and, added to that, when I see so many vaccinations, I would be dishonest in my research/learning if it did not give me pause to wonder if this is part of the wearing down of the immune system (and even if vaccinations are part of the explosion in auto-immune disease). These things, the chemical stew, the vaccinations, they keep the immune system on a low-simmer and when that happens over enough time it causes real damage to the body and the immune system. I was certain, before learning my son had Lyme disease, that he had an auto-immune disorder. He had continuous, low-grade inflammation throughout his body. But I learned from the women in the Lyme group that everyone thinks that's what they have and that what we are given for it is immunosuppressant drugs which are really horrible for people who actually have parasites. Parasites love immunosuppressants! I don't have answers but I do have questions and concerns. How many vaccinations are enough? How many are too much? Are these numbers going to continue rising? And most of all . . . what are the unintended consequences and how can they be mitigated? That is not an extremist position; that is common sense.
