Flu Vaccine 2 Support Your Immune System

Sunshine morguefile

So now you’re thinking about and implementing a healthy life style to support your immune system especially during this cold and flu season of the year. But you want to do even more without endangering your health and your brain from injected foreign substances like the flu vaccine that contains aluminum as an adjuvant as revealed in Dr. Mercola’s article:

And sure enough you can do more.

I recommend the following products. However, the information is for reference only and is not intended to diagnose disease or prescribe treatment.

Always consult with your physician on your health matters.


1. Be sure you have optimal vitamin D levels. Sunshine on your skin activates your vitamin D making processes. But if you don’t get enough sunshine, then you probably need to take at least 2000 IU of vitamin D per day in the form of vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol).

Better yet have your doctor monitor your blood vitamin D levels. Be sure you get the 25(OH)D test. In plain English it’s 25-hydroxy D. It may need to be sent to a specialty lab.

Experts on vitamin D recommend blood levels of 25(OH)D in the range of 35-65 ng/ml.

Watch for news about monitoring your blood vitamin D levels yourself coming soon.

Vitamin D may be the most important of the overlooked and deficient vitamins in most every body. It does a lot more than boost your immune system. So, pay attentions to the coming messages about vitamin D.

I take Carlson’s Vitamin D.


2. Propolis is an excellent supplement to boost your immune system. Propolis is made by bees to protect their hives. Many of my patients found that propolis really helped them get over any viral diseases more quickly. So, you can use propolis in two different ways. You can take it for a week or two just to give your immune system a boost periodically. Then, if you do still get a virus, start taking it again three times a day, 10 to 15 drops in a little water or sparkling water. Children can take propolis, too, in a little lesser amount. They usually need 7 to 10 drops three times a day for viral illnesses.

I have found the Twin-Lab products to be more friendly for folks with allergies and they have excellent quality control. Amazon has good prices:

Propolis 2- pack directly from Amazon:

Or a 1- pack from Swanson Health Products via Amazon:


3. Vitamin C – Vitamin C supplements tend to boost the immune system, too. Personally, I cannot take the synthetic or concentrated ascorbic acid types of vitamin C. However, many people can. If you tolerate that usual type of vitamin C, then when you get a virus, you can boost the amount you take to “bowel tolerance”. In other words, keep increasing the amount of vitamin C you are taking until you get diarrhea. Then, of course, you want to cut back. That is the maximum dose of vitamin C that you can take. For some people, that may be 3,000 mg of vitamin C a day. If you are taking high levels of vitamin C, do not to stop taking it abruptly. You might be more susceptible to infection until your body readjusts if you stop it abruptly. Use Buffered Vitamin C to keep your body from getting too acidic with regular vitamin C (ascorbic acid).

The diabetic drug Diabenese and sulfa drugs may not be as effective when taken with Vitamin C. Taking large amount of Vitamin C may interfere with testing for blood in the stool. Pregnant women should not take more than 5,000 milligrams per day. Infants may become dependent on Vitamin C and develop scurvy if it is withdrawn suddenly.

My favorite type of vitamin C is a food form of vitamin C with the accompanying bioflavonoids and with enzymes that help it to assimilate better. Therefore, I take the Ness Enzymes Natural Vitamin C with Bioflavonoids #11 type of vitamin C complex regularly.

Amazon seems to have the best price:

I highly recommend it over any other type of Vitamin C supplement. The body will assimilate and use it better since it has the co-factors from the food source of this Vitamin C complex instead of just the ascorbic acid and contains enzymes. Also, you do not have to take high doses with the accompanying side effects. It also helps strengthen capillaries, so if you bruise easily you will get an added benefit from Ness Enzymes Natural Vitamin C with Bioflavonoids #11


5. Vitamin A and E – Vitamin A and E can be very powerful against viral infections if you do happen to contract one. The medical literature has shown that you can take very high doses of vitamin A for only a FEW days. You don’t want to overstress your liver with vitamin A, but if you limit this program to only three days, it has been safe in the patients I have had use it.

DO NOT take these large doses of vitamin A at all if you have liver disease or are pregnant or could possibly be pregnant. Do not give these large doses to children.

Antibiotics, laxatives and some cholesterol lowering drugs interfere with the absorption of Vitamin A.

Here’s how you take it if your liver is healthy and you are not pregnant and are not a child:

100,000 to 300,000 units of vitamin A per day with 400 units of vitamin E. Take this for only three days. You may find this will knock out a viral infection rather quickly.

Undoubtedly many more supplements and herbs help support the immune system and guard against these viral infections. If you have a one that’s worked well for you, share your story with us in the comment section.

Stay healthy,
