Healthy ways to boost your immune system

This is an information share with suggestions and is in no
way meant to be a replacement for medical advice.

1. Vitamin C

2. Vitamin D and vitamin K2

3. Vitamin A

4. Magnesium

5. B-Complex

6. Zinc

7. Antiviral herbs: echinacea, oregano oil, olive leaf,
astragalus, cats claw, licorice root

8. Silver hydrosol or colloidal silver

9. Low carbohydrate diet – Paleo, Ketogenic, Carnivore

10. Wim Hoff breathing technique

11. Advanced strategies

1. Vitamin C

Warning: because of my own issues and many other peoples issues with a toxin called oxalic acid which I discovered quite a while after this article was written I now am only recommending people take no more than 250 mg of vitamin C per day when they are feeling healthy. Excess vitamin C in the body can go down certain metabolic pathways in the body that can result in the creation of oxalic acid. Oxalic acid is a small molecule that is found in many plants that we eat and it’s also made inside the human body in small amounts. But it is toxic to the human body and if we ingest and or create more than a certain small amount the body will start storing it and it can lead to many health problems which I will get into in future blogs. I could make an argument that taking high doses when you are feeling like you’re about to be sick or when you are sick for no more than 10 days could still be a reasonable approach, but when talking about long-term dosages I would rather air on the safe side of no more than 250 mg per day when you’re feeling good.


a. 4 doses of 1000 mg spread out over the day is a
reasonable low end

b. 4 to 6 doses to bowel tolerance is a reasonable high end

c. Finding a dose you can take every hour to bowel tolerance
while you’re sick is also a reasonable approach.

Ascorbic Acid or Sodium Ascorbate are my Preferences.

NOW Ascorbic acid powder

Nutribiotic sodium ascorbate powder

Link: https://www.amazon.com/Nutribiotic-Sodium-Ascorbate-Powder-Ounce/dp/B000Z8YM7O

Most people don’t know the incredible power of vitamin C
because either they didn’t know how much to take or they were afraid of taking
too much. Guess what? Vitamin C has no known toxicity and if you take too much
you get diarrhea so your body gives you amazing feedback to help you find the
right dosing strategy.

You have to be willing to do a little self experimentation
to find your individual dosing needs. And it’s important to realize they can
change day by day and even within the day.

2. Vitamin D and vitamin K2


5000 IU of vitamin D with 500 µg vitamin K2 MK4 up to

10,000 IU of vitamin D with 1 mg vitamin K2 MK4

The Japanese have done long-term studies with vitamin K2 MK4
for osteoporosis and use three doses a day of 15 mg.

Vitamin K2 MK4 can be found in animal fats: meat fat, dairy
products and butter especially if the animal is 100% grass fed. if you can eat
butter, Kerry Gold is a decent choice.

Somewhere in this range is very reasonable without testing.
Especially considering your body will make 10,000 IU or even more with full sun
exposure in the middle of the day in 30 minutes or less depending on your

Vitamin D is a powerful immune booster and it also causes
your body to absorb more calcium from your food. Vitamin K2 tells the calcium
where to go, out of the soft tissues and into the bone. A lot more could be
said about both of these vitamins but I’ll leave it at that for now. I will go
more into depth on these two in a forthcoming blog.

3. Vitamin A

Dosing: 8 – 16 oz of grass fed beef liver per week or the

A lot of people won’t like this recommendation because they
do not like liver. I spent a bunch of time looking and I just can’t find a
supplement that I’m really happy with. Many of the vitamin A supplements come
from fish liver and I have a lot of concerns about micro plastics and heavy
metals and rancidity. Vegetables contain beta-carotene, which can be broken
down into vitamin A, but a lot of people have trouble breaking it down
efficiently into vitamin A. The vitamin A in liver is in the perfect form that
can be used easily. One way to get around the taste of liver is to cut it up
into small pieces and freeze them. Then you can swallow them like pills without
tasting them. You can buy desiccated liver in capsules which can be especially
helpful when you’re traveling but otherwise I think they’re overpriced.

Liver is probably the most nutrient dense food on the
planet. It’s high in vitamins and minerals and other nutrients in their most
assimilable form.

4. Magnesium

Dosing: 400–600 mg powdered form per day, as long as that
doesn’t create diarrhea for you. 2-3 tsp ReMag.

Form: magnesium citrate or magnesium glycinate or ReMag.
ReMag May be a little pricey for some people‘s budgets but it is100% absorbable
and it does not create laxative effect.

Magnesium just makes everything in the body work better. One
of its especially important functions is that it is necessary for the creation
of 600-800 enzymes which many of which are especially important for

I have written a blog about magnesium.

5. B complex

Dosing: One capsule a day of my recommended B complex or
something equivalent.

Klaire Labs Active B complex

This B complex contains the B vitamins in their correct forms
four ease of utilization by the body. B vitamins are critical for energy
creation and proper detoxification among many other critical functions.

6. Zinc

Dosing: 30-50mg

Chelated Zinc

Link: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000I4DHLW/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Zinc is a key mineral for immune function and many other
factors in the body.

7. Antiviral herbs

This is the small list:


Oregano oil

Olive leaf extract

Cats claw


Licorice root

Each one of these probably has a book written about them. So
I’ll just leave it up to you to investigate.

8. Silver hydrosol or colloidal silver

Dosing: 1-6 tsp Per day as needed in divided doses. It can
also be sprayed into your nose or into your mouth and some will use it in a
nebulizer. Also is great topically for wound care.

This is a full spectrum anti-microbial. It can be taken as a
preventative as well as when you’re actively sick. I felt an eye infection coming
on one evening and I put one drop in my eye before bed and then again in the
morning and it was gone!

9. Low carbohydrate animal-based diets-Paleo, Ketogenic and

This could be a long entry and I will be giving it a
separate blog in the near future to support my assertions. Even though this may
sound really restrictive there is a lot of space for individuality in these
diets. Some people fine when they give up grains they feel great. Others find
they feel really good when they’re in ketosis. And still others find that they
really don’t start healing until they nothing but animal foods. The Inuit, the
Masai, The plains Indians

Practitioners and self experimenters all across the planet
are finding that diets high in animal products are healing for the human body.
The nutrients in animal products are exactly in the right forms that humans
need and the research shows they are more easily assimilated than the nutrients
in plant foods. Saturated fat actually is good for us. Cholesterol actually is
good for us. Red meat is actually good for us. Too many carbohydrates can be
bad for us. Many plant foods have toxins that can be really bad for us. We need
lots of protein for a healthy immune system and lots of healthy fats and
cholesterol for a healthy endocrine system.

I’ve been on a animal meat and fat diet since mid August
2019. I am not bored with my diet and I am turning my health around. I’ve been
under weight my entire life and I’m finally starting to put on some weight and
I am seeing signs of some deep healing. The circumference of my thighs
increased by 1.5 inches from mid September to early January doing the exact same
exercise on my electronic stimulation bicycle but I have been doing for several

I have dived deep into studying these diets the past eight
months and I am absolutely impressed with the results that practitioners are
seeing and self experimenters doing their own n=1 diets. I am a huge fan of
100% grass fed beef and lamb and pastured pork, chicken, turkey and eggs. But
even people eating conventionally raised animals are still experiencing great
improvements in their health when their carbs are kept low to zero.

Dr. Nadir Ali is a cardiologist in the Houston Texas area
that has been in practice for over 30 years. A number of years ago he got so
frustrated with how a few of his clients were getting better that he stopped
his office visits and only continued work as a surgeon inserting stents. He was
also frustrated with his inability to lose weight himself. After getting
introduced to a low carbohydrate and high animal foods-based diet he finally
started losing weight until his body stabilized at a more ideal body weight. He
had such great success himself he re-opened his office and started teaching
people about the low carbohydrate diet and now he is thrilled with the positive
results his patients are achieving! Every month he does a free workshop where
he teaches people how he eats and regularly has 100 to 150 people in

Here he is getting interviewed by Paul Saladino, MD:

Here is his presentation at low carb Denver 2019 explaining
how low carb high fat often creates high LDL and how it’s necessary:

A word of warning.

If you decide to increase your animal products and decrease
your plant foods some people find there is an adjustment period so it is best
to go slow, especially if you have had any chronic health issues. You want to
especially pay importance to the foods that are high in oxalates and make sure
if you are reducing them you reduce them over a period of 4 to 6 weeks.

10. Breathwork by Wim Hoff aka The Iceman

Dosing: once or twice a day or more as needed.

Wim Hoff holds 26 world records for doing superhuman feats:
submerged up to his neck in ice water for 80 minutes and he was able to raise
his core temperature, climbing Mount Everest in shorts and shoes only, running
a half marathon above the Arctic Circle with only shorts on, running a full
marathon in the hot desert without training and with no water, Wim and 12
students he trained had lowered symptoms and recovered more quickly compared to
the test subjects after getting injected with bacterial endotoxins.

There are a ton of other videos out there if you are

I’ve only been practicing this breathing technique for a
short time but I love how I feel after and it often naturally leads me into
meditation. If I continue to lay there after I complete several rounds of the
breathing I just naturally find my breathing to be slow, full and relaxed.
