COVID-19 IMMUNE BOOST ACTION PLAN & VACCINE SUPPORT PACKS
In addition to common sense measures including wearing a mask, physical distancing, and hand-washing, a healthy immune system is a strong defense against most viruses. Since immunocompromised individuals are at greater risk, it makes sense to do all we can to “un-compromise” our immune systems. Since the beginning of the pandemic, numerous scientific studies and over 25 years of my own clinical experience have validated that the following recommendations help to support a powerful immune system. Most notably, a new study from American Journal of Clinical Pathology found an almost 4-fold increase in death for hospitalized patients with vitamin D deficiency. In response, UK and other countries have provided free vitamin D supplements to at-risk populations. Many medical doctors and hospitals are now treating their COVID patients with Vitamin D, zinc, and melatonin in conjunction with prescription medications. Dr. Anthony Fauci has publicly stated that he takes vitamin D and vitamin C and that they can “lessen your susceptibility to infection”. If you decide to take use any of these natural remedies, this should be under the guidance of a qualified health care practitioner, in addition to the various measures recommended by the CDC and WHO and should not be your only approach. Call us to place your order, schedule an appointment, or ask any questions.
IMMUNE BOOST ACTION PLAN
VITAMIN D It is estimated that over 80% of us in the Chicagoland area have low levels of Vitamin D. Vitamin D deficiency is a serious epidemic that is associated with many diseases including increased risk of many forms of cancer, osteoporosis, colds, flus & other infections, poor immune system function, and seasonal affective disorder (the winter "blues"), or "S.A.D." The scientific literature confirms that that due to the wide use of sunscreen and lack of exposure to sunlight, most people are deficient in vitamin D. Furthermore, the current recommended daily allowance (RDA’s) for Vitamin D are currently way too low and are in the process of being raised. This means that the amount of Vitamin D in fortified milk or in multiple vitamins is not high enough to boost low levels back up to normal. Most experts recommend that everyone have their Vitamin D levels checked with a simple blood test. So get your levels checked ASAP, and send your test results to Dr. Ezgur. For most tests, the normal range is around 30-80 ng/mL, but 50-80 is considered optimal. Based on the results of your test, Dr. Ezgur will recommend the optimal dosage of Vitamin D for you.
DOSE: 5,000 IU per day with food, until you get tested or until the threat of illness has diminished. The meal you take the vitamin D with should contain some fat. The best form of Vitamin D to take is a Vitamin D3 liquid. We carry a very high quality, easily absorbed, and affordable vitamin D3 liquid. 5,000 IU is just five little drops from the eyedropper that comes with the bottle. 1 bottle costs approximately $20.00, and will last most people 4-6 months.
ZINC deficiency is a known risk factor for COVID-19, and has been proven to be effective in blocking coronavirus (and most other viruses) from multiplying in your throat and nasopharynxand and to decrease the intensity and duration of viral infections including cold & flu. If use exceeds 30 consecutive days, it is recommended to cycle 1 week on & 1 week off, or take every other day.
DOSE: 30mg, once per day, with food. Use for 1 month, then continue 1 week on and 1 week off until threat of illness has diminished.
MELATONIN has demonstrated preventive properties against SARS-CoV-2, melatonin helps improve sleep, known to be crucial to recharge your immune system. A recent study at Cleveland Clinic has shown low melatonin to be a major risk factor for COVID-19.
DOSE: 3mg 5-20 minutes before bed.
ULTRA POTENT VITAMIN C is one of the highest quality vitamin C available. Buffered to be gentle on your stomach, and combined with synergistic vitamins and herbs to aid in absorption and effectiveness.
DOSE: 1 pill, once per day, with food.
LAURICIDIN contains lauric acid, the fatty acid found in coconut oil and human breast milk, which kills viruses by breaking down their phospholipid layer, leading to apoptosis (cell death).
DOSE: Swallow (don’t chew) 1 scoop per day, with food.
VIRACID is the highest quality, most effective immune-boosting combination herbal supplement we have found. Ingredients include Echinacea, Elderberry, Andrographis, Astragalus, Vitamin A and others which work synergistically to support the immune system. Do not use echinacea for more than 3 days if you are immune compromised, HIV+, or have auto-immune disease. If use exceeds 30 consecutive days of use, it is recommended to cycle 1-2 weeks on & 1-2 weeks off.
DOSE: 2 pills, 2 times per day, either with food or empty stomach, but best on an empty stomach. Take for 30 days, then continue 1-2 weeks on and 1-2 weeks off.
HOMEOPATHIC REMEDIES: Homeopathic remedies have been used to prevent & treat many of the world’s epidemics throughout history. Currently, The Central Council For Research In Homoeopathy (An autonomous body of the Ministry of AYUSH, Government of India) is recommending the homeopathic remedy Arsenicum album “as a possible preventive for flu like illness such as coronavirus infection”. The Society of Homeopaths in England states: “Gelsemium and Bryonia are commonly used for flu-like symptoms and have a long-established, traditional usage over many years.” Based on this information as well as anecdotal case reports of hundreds of homeopathic doctors treating patients world-wide, we recommend the following:
DOSE: One pellet, of each of the following remedies: Arsenicum album 30C, Bryonia Alba 30C, Gelsemium sempervirens 30C, Carboneum oxygenisatum 30C, dissolved under the tongue, once or twice per week. Best to take only one remedy per day. To help make this easy for you we have labelled our remedies as follows: Take Bryonia Tuesdays & Friday, Arsenicum: Wednesdays & Saturdays, Gelsemium: Thursdays & Mondays., Carboneum: Sundays. Can be taken any time of day, with or without food, but best not within 5 minutes of food or drink. Continue with this regimen for 1 month, then each remedy once per week for another month, then each remedy once per month for another 12 months. Best to keep remedies more than 12 inches from sources of radiation including cell phones, microwaves, and computers/tablets.
MULTIPLE VITAMIN: NUTRIENT 950DOSE:
- 1 pill at breakfast and 1 pill at dinner and 1-2 pills at lunch, for a total of 3-4 pills/day. Or 2 pills/day minimum if eating a super-healthy diet.
- Take within 1-2 hours of eating food. If skipping a meal, it’s OK to take 2-3 pills at once, but it’s best to space the pills out over the course of the day. This is true of all multiples, because many of the water-soluble nutrients like vitamin C only remain in the bloodstream for 4-6 hours.
Why everyone should take a quality multiple vitamin: a healthy diet is not enough:
- For many years, health experts have recommended that everyone take multiple vitamins daily, to reduce your risk of chronic disease (including cancer, heart disease, stroke, & diabetes), recover faster from illness & injuries, improve energy, mood, sleep, & physical/athletic performance.
- In a perfect world, a healthy diet is the best way to get your nutrients, but our world is far from perfect. Nobody eats a perfectly healthy diet, the soil in which food grows has become depleted of nutrients, and we are constantly exposed to environmental toxins and stress, which increase our need for nutrients and antioxidants.
Why most of the popular brand name multiple vitamins are inferior:
- Most contain doses up to the level of RDA’s, which are not high enough, according to current scientific literature.
- Most contain artificial fillers, preservatives, dyes, allergens, and don’t have the proper ratios and balance of key nutrients.
- Most use cheap nutrient sources, leading to low absorption and poor bio-availability, and contain iron, which can be toxic if you’re not anemic.
Why “Nutrient 950” multiple vitamin/mineral formula is recommended:
- This is hands-down, the single best multiple vitamin formula we have found. We recommend it to all patients, family, friends, and have personally used it for many years with great results.
- Comprehensive, safe, pure, iron-free formula, based on current scientific literature, with high levels of key nutrients in proper balance and ratios
- High quality forms & sources of nutrients for optimal absorption and enhanced bioavailability
- Great value. Nutrient 950 costs less than $20 per month.
VACCINE SUPPORT PACKS
We are preparing individualized one-a-day “packs” of supplements and the homeopathic remedy Arnica montana designed to support and protect your immune system & nervous system before, during and after vaccination. The goal is to decrease injection site pain, minimize side effects and reduce inflammation. Please email Dr. Ezgur a list of your current supplements containing zinc, vitamin B complex, magnesium, fish oil, vitamin D, turmeric/curcumin, and vitamin C, and he will reply back with specific recommendations & pricing, so that you may pre-order your individualized vaccine support packs. You will then receive a seven-day supply for each shot, which will cost approximately $20-$30, depending on your individual needs. NOTE: The use of ibuprofen or other pain medication prior to and after the injection is not recommended at this time because pain medication may block the immunological reaction needed to acquire optimal immunity/protection that the vaccines are meant to trigger.
OTHER HELPFUL SUGGESTIONS:
COME IN FOR MEDICALLY NECESSARY TREATMENT. Spinal manipulation (chiropractic adjustment) & acupuncture & massage have been shown to stimulate immune system activity and relieve stress, chest & sinus congestion & pressure. WATER intake is critical, at least 8 glasses per day.
WATER intake is critical, at least 8 glasses per day.
EAT A HEALTHY DIET INCLUDING LOTS OF FRUITS & VEGETAGBLES
LIMIT ALCOHOL, SUGAR & FRUIT JUICES as these all can inhibit the immune system. All sugar-containing products, including juice, should be used sparingly.
MODERATE EXERCISE including brisk walking has been shown to boost the immune system in healthy individuals. There are also health benefits to spending some time outdoors and opening windows at home for brief periods of time to get fresh air. Avoid or limit strenuous exercise during acute infection which can cause inflammation resulting in immune system suppression.
MANAGING STRESS is beneficial as stress is a significant immune system suppressant. Exercise can help, but daily meditation and cognitive behavioral therapy seem to be especially effective. Many apps are available to make this more convenient including: insight timer, calm, headspace and meditation oasis. Stay informed, but limiting time spent on social media and the news may also be beneficial.
SLEEP & REST are crucial. Try to sleep without an alarm clock and let your body get as much of it as it needs. If you’re sick rest as much as possible, and avoid any moderate or strenuous exercise until you’re feeling better.
