Before beginning to supplement a diet with remedies for common ailments or specific indications, I believe everyone should take a complete and comprehensive vitamin and mineral supplement containing over 30 vitamins and minerals. This formula should provide a balanced assortment of vitamins and minerals in a proprietary ratio to support complete cellular function. Emphasis should be placed on B vitamins, particularly the B vitamins that are not required to be converted by the liver into their metabolic form. Minerals that are bound to amino acid chelates in most cases are weak structures that break apart in the digestive tract and are not absorbed easily. A good multivitamin and mineral supplement should contain minerals that are bound to the amino acid glycine which forms a glycinate chelate. These are truly the finest mineral chelates for complete absorption.
I highly recommend:
- A multivitamin and mineral supplement that provides the basic nutrients in 4 tablets daily
- Adults can take 2 tablets twice daily with meals
- Children can take 1–2 tablets a day with meals
- Any vitamin and mineral formula that recommends a dosage of 1 tablet daily will never supply sufficient quantities for complete metabolic function.
Every Day Nutritional Dietary Protocol
Our body requires all vitamins and minerals on a daily basis to complete its metabolic functions. However, in my 45 years of research, and after developing 400 nutritional formulations, I found one ingredient that stands out amongst all other ingredients as having the greatest impact on our health. That is curcumin. It holds more potential for health and well-being than any other substance. If I were allowed only one supplement to take it would be curcumin. The abstract below summarizes the powerful medicinal potential that curcumin holds for the elimination of dozens of diseases.
CURCUMIN: The Indian Solid Gold
Bharat B. Aggarwal, Chitra Sundaram, Nikita Malani,and Haruyo Ichikawa
Abstract: Turmeric, derived from the plant Curcuma longa, is a gold-colored spice commonly used in the Indian subcontinent, not only for health care but also for the preservation of food and as a yellow dye for textiles. Curcumin, which gives the yellow color to turmeric, was first isolated almost two centuries ago, and its structure as diferuloylmethane was determined in 1910. Since the time of Ayurveda (1900 bc) numerous therapeutic activities have been assigned to turmeric for a wide variety of diseases and conditions, including those of the skin, pulmonary, and gastrointestinal systems, aches, pains, wounds, sprains, and liver disorders. Extensive research within the last half century has proven that most of these activities, once associated with turmeric, are due to curcumin. Curcumin has been shown to exhibit antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antiviral, antibacterial, antifungal, and anticancer activities and thus has a potential against various malignant diseases, diabetes, allergies, arthritis, Alzheimer’s disease, and other chronic illnesses. These effects are mediated through the regulation of various transcription factors, growth factors, inflammatory cytokines, protein kinases, and other enzymes. Curcumin exhibits activities similar to recently discovered tumor necrosis factor blockers (e.g., HUMIRA, REMICADE, and ENBREL), a vascular endothelial cell growth factor blocker (e.g., AVASTIN), human epidermal growth factor receptor blockers (e.g., ERBITUX, ERLOTINIB, and GEFTINIB), and a HER2 blocker (e.g., HERCEPTIN). Considering the recent scientific bandwagon that multitargeted therapy is better than monotargeted therapy for most diseases, curcumin can be considered an ideal “Spice for Life”.
Recommendations for Common Ailments
SUPPLEMENT #1 Bone spur formula
Vitamin C (as ascorbic acid) 100 mg, Vitamin B6 (as pyridoxal-5-phosphate/P-5-P) 20 mg, Calcium (as calcium chloride and calcium phosphate) 110 mg, Magnesium (as magnesium glycerophosphate) 25 mg. Take two tablets with each meal, and another two tablets at bedtime if you have a painful bone spur. For maintenance, 1 or 2 tablets daily are sufficient.
Age, weak bone structure, physical activity, and pH imbalances can cause build-up of what is essentially “dead calcium”, which results in painful bone spurs. Acidifying factors such as ascorbic acid (vitamin C), P-5-P, calcium chloride, calcium phosphate, magnesium glycerophosphate and ammonium chloride can dissolve bone spurs.
SUPPLEMENT #2 Stress formula
Rhodiola (Rhodiola rosea) Root Extract standardized to contain >5% rosavins (rosavins and salidrosides), Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera) standardized to contain 5% withanolides, 450 mg. Take this formula several times a day.
A very safe and natural herbal formula to reduce stress and depression. It can also support adrenal function. This stress formula is ideal for those who want to avoid animal extracts. This formula can also improve work performance, increase physical and mental stamina, increase energy levels and libido.
SUPPLEMENT #3 Adrenal formula
Vitamin C 200 mg, pregnenolone 15 mg, DHEA 10 mg, adrenal extract 450 mg, L-Tyrosine 450 mg, licorice extract 125 mg, P-5-P 10 mg, pantothenic acid 100 mg, rehmannia 75 mg. Take this formula three to six times daily.
Use for fatigue, stress, exhaustion, unnecessary crying spells, negative attitude, muscle weakness, unfounded fears, allergies, hives, low blood pressure, salt and sugar cravings, asthma, respiratory disorders.
SUPPLEMENT #4 A superior form of DGL
Deglycyrrhizinated Licorice (DGL) (Glycyrrhiza glabra) Root Extract 75 mg. Take 1 capsule twice daily.
Look for a form of DGL that is standardized for the bioflavonoid content with proven effectiveness for reducing IBS (irritable bowel syndrome), GERD (gastrointestinal esophageal reflux disorder), and any intestinal tract irritability as well as ulcers of the stomach and duodenal. Earlier research suggested that DGL had to be chewed in order to be effective. I think this is due to the fact that older versions of DGL, the chewable form, is a crude non-standardized form of DGL and several grams of DGL two or three times a day was required to be effective. Today research has developed a highly standardized DGL based on its bioflavonoid content. For the most effective benefits, take 75 mg to 150 mg daily. Large quantities of licorice extract may cause high blood pressure. DGL is deglycyrrhizinated and therefore, will not cause an increase in blood pressure. DGL is more effective than any medication for GERD and ulcers.
SUPPLEMENT #5 Heartburn formula
D-Limonene, Sea Buckthorn (Hippophae rhamnoides L.) Oil rich in phytosterols, tocopherols, tocotrienols and carotenoids; oil extracted in a specific ratio of berry pulp and seed oil, containing Omega-7 using supercritical CO2 extraction technology, 600 mg. Take this formula once or twice a day.

Take this formula twice a day.
These extracts were shown in a clinical test to reduce allergy symptoms and histamine release in people with hay fever and hives. If possible, start taking a few weeks before your most difficult allergy season in order to reduce immune system response to your allergy triggers. Will not cause dry mouth or sleepiness.
SUPPLEMENT #7 Stamina formula

SUPPLEMENT #11 B6, B12, and folate in their methylated form
Vitamin B6 (from pyridoxal-5-phosphate) 25 mg, Folate (as (6S)-5-methylfolate) (equivalent to 1,600 mcg of (6S)-5-Methyltetrahydrofolic acid, glucosamine salt) 800 mcg, Vitamin B12 (as methylcobalamin) 1,000 mcg. Take 1 capsule daily. These three B vitamins are extremely important in reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease, anxiety, depression, numbing and tingling of fingers, toes and burning feet, and providing energy, stamina and support for the nervous system. All pregnant women should take these forms of B vitamins as it is important to prevent neural tube defects in the fetus. Look for a combination of these three B vitamins in their methylated form which ensures absolute effectiveness. Regular B6, B12 and folic acid are required to be converted in the liver to the methylated form before they are effective for their health benefits. As high as 30-40% of the population cannot convert regular B6, B12 and folic acid to their methylated form. This is an extremely effective combination because it works immediately.

Take this formula once or twice daily.
This formula contains a highly concentrated extract of boswellia standardized at >70% Total Organic and Boswellic acids and greater than 10% AKBA, which leading scientists believe is the active component of boswellia. Most boswellia extracts contain around 2% AKBA. Beta boswellic acid, considered to be a pro-inflammatory boswellic acid normally occurring between 25 and 30% in all extracts of boswellia, has been reduced to less than 5%. The formula also includes a highly concentrated curcumin extract, which has been proven to be up to 10 times more concentrated and effective than curcumin 95%. This combination inhibits the enzyme 5-lipoxygenase (5-LOX), which can suppress the formation of leukotrienes of the 4-series inflammatory mediators that can induce allergic and inflammatory responses. The 5-LOX enzyme is involved in a variety of disorders and estimated to affect at least 60 different diseases such as inflammation of the intestinal tract (colitis, Crohn’s disease and IBS). Other diseases that can be significantly improved are psoriasis, bronchitis, asthma, emphysema, sinusitis and all upper respiratory disorders. It can also reduce edema associated with brain tumors.

SUPPLEMENT #23 Iron supplement for vitality and energy
Iron (as ferrous bisglycinate chelate) 30 mg, Magnesium (as magnesium bisglycinate chelate buffered) 300 mg, Zinc (as zinc bisglycinate chelate) 10 mg, Copper (as copper bisglycinate chelate) 2 mg.
Iron is the number one deficiency in the world. Iron has, over the last decade, gotten a bad rap. It’s a crucial mineral for many indications. Because of a very poor, flawed study indicating that iron may cause heart disease, iron has been avoided by most of the population. Supplement manufacturers are making multiple vitamin and mineral supplements without iron. We are creating a severe iron deficiency for basically no reason. One out of every five menstruating women have a deficiency of iron. 50% of all pregnant women are deficient in iron. 90% of all women who complain of chronic fatigue found that it is due to a deficiency of iron. Iron is also found deficient in athletes. Iron is lost due to strenuous exercise and heavy perspiration.
Muscles that receive more oxygen function with greater strength and endurance. Chelated minerals increase red blood cell formation and EPO metabolism.

SUPPLEMENT #31 Weight loss formula (carb blocker)
Phaseolamin from Purified White Kidney Bean (Phaseolus vulgaris) Extract 2 mg. Take this formula with each meal.
This formula is the only phaseolamin that is highly concentrated and purified so only 2 mg per meal is required, versus 1,000-1,500 mg from other extracts that are not concentrated and are not enteric coated. Enteric coating guarantees stomach acid survival and intestinal delivery so that the necessary activity of phaseolamin will reach the area of the lower intestines where amylase is released and digesting occurs. By reducing the enzymatic digestion of dietary starches (carbohydrates), the calories found in carbs may not be absorbed, reducing your total intake of grams and calories on a daily basis. Reducing 500-1000 calories per day will assist you in losing 1-2 pounds per week. A long-lasting weight loss program should include a balanced nutrition plan and regular exercise. As with any weight loss program, consult a physician. Allow three to four weeks for your body to adjust to the reduction of carbohydrates before you can expect weight loss. Thereafter, you can expect to lose one to two pounds weekly.

It kills off the harmful bacteria without affecting the beneficial probiotics in our gut. It’s safe for everyone and also has excellent research proven for cardiovascular health, and reducing cholesterol and blood pressure. It can kill off every known bacteria that’s harmful to humans. In a lab analysis comparing garlic to seven different kinds of antibiotics, garlic outperformed all of the antibiotics. In the test, the garlic killed off all of the different forms of bacteria while the antibiotics were effective on several of the bacteria, but no one antibiotic killed off all seven as did the garlic.

SUPPLEMENT #39 Numbing and tingling of fingers and toes, and burning feet
Thiamin (B1) (as Thiamine HCI) 25 mg, Riboflavin (Vitamin B2) 25 mg, Niacin (Vitamin B3) 10 mg, Vitamin B6 (as Pyridoxal-5-Phosphate) 30 mg, Folate (as (6S)-5-methylfolate) (equivalent to 500 mcg of (6S)-5-Methyltetrahydrofolic acid, glucosamine salt) 250mcg, Vitamin B12 (as Methylcobalamin) 500 mcg, Biotin 1 mg, Pantothenic acid (as D-Calcium Pantothenate) 200 mg, Zinc (Zinc Glycinate Chelate) 10 mg, Chromium (Chromium Nicotinate Glycinate Chelate) 200 mcg, Alpha Lipoic Acid 200 mg. In the beginning take this formula 6 times daily for several weeks and then 4 times daily thereafter.
This is commonly referred to as neuropathy or diabetic neuropathy. Having diabetes is not a requirement but it adds to the problem of neuropathy. Because of the high level of blood sugar, the nervous system is affected causing burning feet, numbing and tingling of fingers and many other nerve disorders. These conditions are not life threatening but they do make life hard to live. Getting the right level of nutrients and the right kind can significantly reduce the effects of neuropathy. Because the virus that causes shingles lies dormant in the nervous system, this blend of nutrients can provide support to the nerves and deactivate the virus. It is highly effective for anyone who wants to prevent an outbreak of shingles or for anyone who may have shingles.
SUPPLEMENT #40 Knee and joint flexibility formula
Vitamin D3 (Cholecalciferol) 3000 IU, Proprietary Complex Curcumin (Curcuma longa) Rhizome Extract with curcuminoid complex (curcumin, demethoxycurcumin and bisdemethoxycurcumin) phospholipids and turmeric essential oil, Boswellia (Boswellia serrata) Extract standardized to contain >70% Total Organic and Boswellic acids with AKBA >10%, with less than 5% beta-boswellic acids, Fructoborate. 1341 mg.

Niacin (inositol hexaniacinate) 1000 mg, Magnesium (amino acid chelate) 200 mg, Riboflavin (vitamin B2) 200 mg, Manganese (amino acid chelate) 10 mg, Selenium (amino acid chelate) 200 mcg. Take this formula four times daily.
Iodine is a very important mineral and has significant health benefits for thyroid and entire cell and metabolic function. Iodine can support thyroid, breast, ovaries, uterus and prostate function. Iodine is one of the most alkaline substances and detoxifies the body of bromide, chlorine and fluoride. Dr. Szent-Györgyi, discoverer of vitamin C, said it was the most magical and miracle medicine in the world. Many holistic doctors believe it is impossible to lead a good healthy life without iodine. However, some people have a cellular resistance to iodine, similar to insulin resistance. This formula does not contain iodine but contains the necessary elements that are required to increase iodine absorption and assimilation.
SUPPLEMENT #45 Energy and stamina formula
Vitamin B12 (methylcobalamin) 1000 mcg, Liver Fractions 20X (predigested and concentrated, containing natural heme iron) 1300 mg, Folic Acid 200 mcg. Take this formula up to 3 times daily.
Liver Extract provides high levels of heme iron combined with B12 and rhodiola. The liver extract is highly concentrated (20:1) providing a fat free and cholesterol free freeze-dried liver extract. Liver contains a natural form of iron called heme iron which is necessary to carry the oxygen throughout the blood circulation. Liver extract, with its superior source of iron and other blood building nutrients, provides energy, stamina and an excellent sense of well being. People who have gone through a serious illness or a series of stress conditions would have lost a great deal of iron as happens during chemotherapy and radiation. The drug, Procrit, has been developed to help replace the iron lost during these stressful times. One out of every five women and 50% of all pregnant women are deficient in iron. A lack of iron causes fatigue, exhaustion, cold extremities and headaches. Liver extract contains a natural source of iron attached to hemoglobin which is absorbed up to 33% greater than non-heme iron. This formula contains predigested liver from animals raised in Argentina without the use of steroids or antibiotics. The animals are range fed. The liver fraction is non-toxic and non-constipating. Animal studies have proven that when fed liver extract they are able to live longer and healthier than with any other food. Animals subjected to a swimming test in cold water were able to swim approximately 15 minutes before tiring. When the same animals, after being rescued and fed liver extract for two weeks, were retested in the cold water study, their swimming time had increased on average to 90 minutes and some were able to swim until the test concluded which was approximately three hours. While liver extract contains an excellent source of natural vitamin B12, the formula is fortified with extra B12 using the biologically active form of methylcobalamin. The content of vitamin B12 in this formula will vary from batch to batch so in order to call out the benefits of the B12, 1000 mcg was added per 2 capsules. This potency was added to have a consistent potency on every label.
SUPPLEMENT #46 Low back pain relief formula
Containing White Willow (Salix spp.) Bark Extract standardized to contain 30% salicin, Boswellia (Boswellia serrata) Gum Resin Extract standardized to contain >70%, Total Organic and Boswellic Acids with AKBA >10%, with less than 5% beta-boswellic acids, Devil’s Claw (Harpagophytum procumbens) Root Extract standardized to contain >20% harpagosides. Take this formula twice daily.
White willow has been shown in multiple clinical studies to relieve chronic low back pain. Bowellia reduces inflammation and devil’s claw increases the secretion of hyaluronic acid—the cushioning fluid in the joints. This formula provides fast relief from low back pain without the adverse effects associated with OTC and prescription drugs.
SUPPLEMENT #47 Menopause formula
Pomegranate (Punica granatum) Extract standardized to contain > 60% polyphenols, Hop Cone (Humulus lupulus L.)

Contains patented hop extract which is an herbal extract that has been shown to have phytoestrogen properties. It has also been shown to have significant benefits for calming the nerves and supporting a sound restful sleep. Black cohosh has a long history dating back to the Native American Indians who used this excellent herb for women’s health. The combination of these three herbs is a powerful synergistic complex that provides complete care for the menopausal woman by reduction of hot flashes, control of weight gain, anti-aging effects, blood sugar level control, improved skin health, reducing fine lines and wrinkles, and reducing the risk of osteoporosis. The menopausal woman can also greatly benefit by adding iodine to her menopause protocol.
SUPPLEMENT #48 Memory and concentration formula
Vitamin D3 2000 IU, Proprietary Complex Curcumin Micronized (Curcuma longa) Rhizome Extract with phospholipids and turmeric essential oil, Spanish Sage (Salvia lavandulifolia) Oil, Rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis) Oil, 600 mg. Take this formula two to six times daily or as desired.
An excellent combination of curcumin containing 10x absorbable curcumin with vitamin D, Spanish sage oil and oil of rosemary. Current research suggests that vitamin D and curcumin can prevent and reduce significantly the beta amyloid plaque and TAU which causes disruption of cellular communication in the brain. Spanish sage oil and rosemary oil prevent the destruction of acetylcholine, the messenger that improves communication between brain cells. Useful for all mental disorders, prevention and diminishing the effects of Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, short term memory loss and memory recall.
SUPPLEMENT #49 Mesoglycan

Calcium lactate is an amazing treatment for dry night coughs due to low calcium levels (usually caused by lots of exercise and sun exposure) as well as muscle cramping at night. It is also helpful for respiratory infections. This formula works well for children.
SUPPLEMENT #51 Healthy skin and mucosal formula
Sea Buckthorn (Hippophae rhamnoides L.) Oil rich in phytosterols, tocopherols, tocotrienols and carotenoids; oil extracted in a specific ratio of berry pulp and seed oil, containing Omega-7 using supercritical CO2 extraction technology, 1000 mg. Take this formula twice daily based on clinical evidence.
Sea Buckthorn oil is rare and wonderful. It is produced from both the seed and pulp in a very specific ratio that has been clinically studied to improve internal and external mucous membranes. Although it is expensive, it is well worth the cost. It contains Omega-7. Clinical studies have shown it to be effective in relieving dry skin, mouth, eyes and vagina. Clinical trials were conducted and shown to be effective in supporting individuals with Sjögren’s syndrome. The berries are handpicked which is a very laborious process due to the thorns on the trees. Some companies use picking processes that destroy the trees. Sea buckthorn oil in this formula is obtained using very sustainable practices to save the Sea buckthorn trees. This formula has extremely excellent benefits for improving all mucous membranes which includes the skin. Sea buckthorn oil is sold in Europe as an internal cosmetic for women who want beautiful, hydrated, wrinkle free skin. In fact, it improves skin hydration by 48% after three months, while increasing softness of the skin and elasticity.

25 million people in America are being treated with harsh prescriptions for parasites. It’s been estimated that 80% of Americans are harboring parasites. Think of how many people travel worldwide today infecting themselves and others. Parasites can cause low grade fevers, infections, weight loss, insomnia, indigestion and undiagnosable symptoms. Some people are always sick due to parasites but it’s difficult to determine what type and how to treat them. Plant oils can kill every form of parasite and pathogen in the body.
SUPPLEMENT #56 Pomegranate

Angelica (Angelica archangelica) Leaf Extract (aqueous extraction). Take 100–200 mg daily.
A specific extract of angelica from Iceland has been shown to reduce nighttime bathroom trips and improve sleep patterns. Because angelica (unlike saw palmetto) does not affect hormone activity, but instead reduces bladder inflammation and bladder spams, it is effective for both men and women. Use for overactive bladder, interstitial cystitis, stress incontinence, urinary retention, and BPH.
SUPPLEMENT #58 Sinus formula
Plant Oils containing Eucalyptus (Eucalyptus globulus) 70-85% 1,8 cineole, Myrtle (Myrtus communis cineole) containing alpha pinene, 1,8 cineole, in a base of Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO), 320 mg. Take this formula several times a day.
This formula is a wonderful product for supporting the structure and function of the sinuses. Some people have found it has a great effect by allowing the softgel capsule to dissolve in the mouth. Be careful, it will have a very prominent and pronounced effect due to the eucalyptus oil, but try it. You might find it highly effective. Swallowing the capsule is completely effective. Some individuals like the strong eucalyptus aroma circulating in their nasal passages. This formula contains eucalyptus oil and oil of myrtle. It is very effective for supporting the bronchi, lungs, sinuses and entire upper respiratory function. Sinus congestion is a very common condition worldwide. This formula is an all-natural, wonderful product, and highly effective for all respiratory functions. 1 capsule daily for maintenance.
SUPPLEMENT #59 Intestinal and gallbladder function
Contains Basil (Ocimum basilicum), Peppermint (Mentha piperita), Coriander (Coriandrum sativum), Cumin (Cuminum cyminum), Bay (Laurus nobilis), Caraway (Carum carvi), Lemon (Citrus limon) concentrated plant oils. Take 1 softgel with each meal as needed.
Plant oils have not been typically known for their benefit for the intestinal tract and gallbladder function. The right blend of plant oils can have a huge benefit in improving all the functions of the digestive process including stomach, intestinal tract and gallbladder. Spices and oils have been used for thousands of years to relieve gas, bloating, indigestion and a sluggish gallbladder.
SUPPLEMENT #60 Strontium, the trace mineral for bone health and reduced osteoporosis
Strontium (citrate) 340 mg. Take this formula once or twice daily.
Strontium is a wonderful product for improving bone health. It’s a trace mineral and essential for bone health. There are studies that show it improves calcium absorption and assimilation. It reduces the damaging effects of osteoporosis dramatically. In Europe, strontium has been clinically studied and is prescribed for bone health. 680 mgs is a very excellent dosage for people experiencing very severe osteoporosis. Studies suggest that, for better bioavailability, Strontium should be taken more than two hours before or two hours after taking a calcium supplement. Strontium is absorbed using calcium transport mechanisms, and should not be taken at the same time as calcium supplements. However, calcium should be taken on a daily basis if taking Strontium.
SUPPLEMENT #61 Green coffee bean
Decaffeinated Green Coffee (Coffea canephora) Bean Extract standardized to 50%-55% total polyphenols, 45%-50% total chlorogenic acids, 10%-15% 5-caffeoylquinic acid 200 mg. Take 1 capsule 2 times daily.
Green (meaning unroasted) coffee bean extract has been shown in clinical studies to induce weight loss. It is not a stimulant (there is no caffeine)—it works by slowing (inhibiting) the absorption of sugar (glucose) in the intestines, and reducing the breakdown of sugar by the liver. This leads to lower blood sugar levels, increased fat metabolism and weight loss.
SUPPLEMENT #62 Thyroid support formula for underactive thyroid
30 mg of iodine and 400 mg of L-Tyrosine. Take this formula 1 to 2 times daily.
• Aching muscles?
• Are you always fatigued or exhausted?
SUPPLEMENT #63 PA-free comfrey cream
Completely free of pyrolizidine alkaloids, which experts believe to be toxic to the liver. All comfrey creams in the US contain these alkaloids commonly referred to as PAs. This is the only comfrey cream in the US that is completely free of PAs. The cream is pure white, containing the fresh pressed juice of the leaves, stems, and blossoms of comfrey. The root is not used. Comfrey cream can be used to relieve pain of fractures, sprains, strains and joint distortion. Because it is free of PAs it can be used on open wounds, cuts and abrasions without restrictions. It is safe to use for children over the age of 4. Clinical studies prove it significantly reduces pain and speeds healing time by 50%.
• Heals bruises and abrasions
• Reduces pain and swelling
• Rebuilds damaged skin without greasiness or staining clothes
• Clinically proven safe for children
SUPPLEMENT #64 Iodine (sodium iodide, potassium iodide and molecular iodine)
12.5 mg to 50 mg daily. Take this formula up to four times daily.
All cells have a receptor site for iodine. The thyroid gland requires iodine for normal function. The tissues that require iodine besides the thyroid gland are breast, ovaries, uterus and prostate. Researchers believe that iodine can prevent cysts, nodules and cancer of the breast, ovaries, uterus and prostate. Iodine can destroy bacteria, viruses, and infection. Iodine is one of the most powerful detoxifiers of chlorine, fluoride, bromide and acidine, facilitating their removal from the body. Without sufficient levels of iodine, these four cancer-causing chemicals accumulate in our cells. With whole body iodine sufficiency, these toxic elements are discharged from our cells.
SUPPLEMENT #65 Pancreatic enzyme
Full Strength Pancreatin (undiluted) 250 mg.
Pancreatic enzymes have multiple uses. Take them with meals to reduce gas, bloating, cramping and other signs of poor digestion. Take them between meals to relieve inflammation. There is also some evidence that pancreatin (a mix of pancreatic enzymes) can fight cancer. Take one tablet with meals as a digestive aid, and one tablet between meals on an empty stomach for treatment of other conditions.
SUPPLEMENT #66 Cold and flu formula

Does not contain stimulants, caffeine or sugar. Three pure plant oils diluted in extra virgin olive oil. For people with low levels of energy it can significantly increase energy levels. For people with above average levels of energy it will have no added benefits since it is not an artificial stimulant.
SUPPLEMENT #68 Omega-3 fatty acids formula
Take this formula once or twice daily.
Omega-3 fatty acids bound to phospholipids, peptides and DHA and EPA which are extracted only from salmon. This type of formula is extremely stable with no rancidity as it is processed only with enzymes and cold water. No chemicals, extreme heat, spiking or manipulating the DHA and EPA.

It can clear the accumulation of mucus in the respiratory tract and the area of ear, nose and throat. It supports upper respiratory tract, sinuses and bronchi. It can be used for a wide range of viral infections, cold and flu, mononucleosis, herpes I and II, shingles, hepatitis, viral enteritis, severe immunodeficiency, bronchitis, sinusitis, lymphatic congestion, lymphedema, insomnia, depression and deep nervous and physical strain.
SUPPLEMENT #70 Cold, flu, or Viral Infection
Vitamin A (as retinyl acetate) 10,000 IU, Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) 200 mg, Vitamin D (as cholecalciferol) 1000 IU, Calcium (as calcium lactate) 41 mg, Magnesium (as magnesium citrate) 6.7 mg, Zinc (as zinc gluconate) 15 mg. Take 1 tablet daily. May increase to 3-6 per day as needed.
Use a blend of ingredients in this formula to reduce the severity and duration of a viral outbreak such as a cold, flu, or viral infection. The vitamins and minerals will support the immune system while the elderberry will block the cellular invasion of the virus.
SUPPLEMENT #71 Vitamin D3
Vitamin D3 (as cholecalciferol) 5,000 IU.
Low levels of vitamin D have been associated with many health conditions, including increased risk of cold and flu, cancer, dementia, osteoporosis and heart disease. Researchers believe that vitamin D3 can also reduce the risk of a heart attack by as much as 50%, reduce the risk of common cancers of the colon, prostate and breast by as much as 50%, reduce the risk of infectious diseases including the flu by as much as 90%, reduce the risk of type I diabetes and type 2 diabetes by 78%. Vitamin D3 also decreases the risk of dementia and depression by almost 80%. A deficiency of vitamin D3 increases the risk of fibromyalgia and most neurological conditions such as MS and Parkinson’s disease. According to the Vitamin D Council in Omaha Nebraska, all adults should take minimum of 5,000 IUs per day. The majority of Americans are vitamin D deficient, and the RDA is not enough for significant disease prevention. 5,000 IU daily of vitamin D3 (the form found in the human body) should be taken daily.
SUPPLEMENT #72 Oregano oil
Concentrated Moroccan Oregano (Origanum compactum) plant oil containing 55% of carvacrol and thymol (82.5 mg) 150 mg. Take 1 to 2 softgels daily.
Oregano oil is very powerful in destroying bacteria of any kind. It is probably one of nature’s safest plant oils for eliminating bacteria. It would be my choice in place of an antibiotic. It’s very safe and tolerable, and in smaller dosages safe for children over 6. The oil that I find most effective is from the unique species of oregano called compactum. This species contains compounds of carvacrol and thymol that act as powerful antioxidants and support the body’s immune response. Oregano oil will destroy harmful bacteria in the intestinal tract without harming the beneficial flora, therefore, making the probiotics in our gut more helpful because there is a greater abundance of good versus bad bacteria in our gut. It can be used orally or topically with outstanding benefits.
