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 23 years in practice, I have found a pretty great formula to help you avoid the "crud."
So 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
Food-Based Vitamin C – 2 a day
Zinc – 20 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* or Conga-Immune – 2-12 a day. (Take a couple every few hours)
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
When you are feeling better, decrease the above doses, but don’t stop. Instead, continue taking all for at least the next 2 weeks.

These are all Adult doses.
These are not long-term strategies. These are general guidelines for immune system support for the flu/cold season.
