Worried about catching the CRUD?

Updated: Sep 26, 2023

Don't let this be you!

Most important!

Wash your hands.

Don’t touch your face.

Stop eating and drinking sugar!


IT’S BACK…right on schedule! And it’s sooo easy to avoid.

How to avoid catching the "crud" this winter...

(It is quite simple.)

Every winter, I see numerous people in my office for flu/cold related symptoms. (Actually, since Covid, I don't actually "see" them in the office anymore, but we do a lot of talking on the phone!)

And after 25 years in practice, I have found a pretty great formula to help you avoid the "crud."

I wanted to send this email as a "heads up" on how to easily stay healthy this winter.


Here are our current Immune Support Suggestions:

For prevention (for adults):

  • Vitamin D – unless directed otherwise, 5000 IUs a day. (However, the optimal approach to dosing requires blood testing of your Vitamin D level.)

  • Food-Based Vitamin C – 2 a day

  • Zinc – 30-40 mg a day

  • NAC (N-Acetyl Cysteine) – 1 a day

If you THINK you are starting to get sick (don’t wait until you are really sick)—get going quickly on the following:

  • Total V-RX* – 2-12 a day. (More is better.)

  • Vitamin C – 4-12 a day. (Food-based Vitamin C will not have a laxative effect as ascorbic acid will. I only recommend food-based Vitamin C)

  • Increase Zinc to 50-100 mg a day

  • Increase Vitamin D to 10,000 for a couple of days

  • Quercetin 250mg twice a day

  • NAC -- 2-3 a day

  • Magnesium – 500 mg or more

All of these doses should be distributed throughout the day.

When you are feeling better, decrease the above doses, but don’t stop. Instead, continue taking all for at least the next week.

Click below for EASY online ordering. Due to back-orders and delays in shipping, we stock similar supplements from different companies. All are good. Pick whichever you like. If you would like more specific guidance, please reply to this email, text, or call the office. 928-260-4747.

*Do not take if you are pregnant

These are all adult doses.

These are not long-term strategies. These are general guidelines for immune system support for the flu/cold season. This information is to serve only as a quick guide-- it may not fit everyone's needs. Please speak to Dr. Julie directly (or your doctor) if you have specific questions or concerns about your situation. Thanks!
