We are so blessed to have the Medical Medium information to help inform and guide us like nothing else out there. However, when it comes to the Medical Medium supplements, there are long lists for various conditions and symptoms and it can seem overwhelming. Do you need to take all of them? It’s highly unlikely. Not only that, but taking a ton of supplements can just cause more stress to an already overtaxed liver.
When we are experiencing something like an “autoimmune” condition or other chronic illness, the liver is overburdened. This means it’s difficult for it to perform its tasks and is always trying to keep its head above water. It still does its best to work tirelessly for you day in and day out, but it’s low functioning. When we add a bunch of supplements into the mix, this can further the stress on it. See, the liver must process everything we introduce into the body. That includes supplements.
When healing from chronic illness, it’s essential to give the liver a break so it can come back online and increase its functioning. When this happens, it’s able to process and utilize the supplements with greater ease. So, limiting the amount of supplements you take, at least at first, can be highly beneficial. Below are the most important supplements to focus on – B12, zinc, vitamin C, and curcumin.
B12 with Adenysylcobalamine
B12 is critical for your liver and nervous system. Just about everyone is deficient in it, whether they are sick or not. Even when blood tests show normal levels, one can still be deficient. Providing the body with the right B12 is essential. Make sure you take on with both adenosylcobalamin and methylcobalamin. When you take a form that is not bioavailable, not only does it cause further stress on the liver, but it just ends up being urinated out.
Whether you eat meat or are plant-based, you aren’t getting B12 from these sources. In addition to supplementation, we can get B12 from microorganisms called elevated biotics. These live on the above ground surfaces of fresh produce like leafy greens, sprouts, herbs, fruits, wild foods, and vegetables in their growing state. If we only lightly rinse them before eating, we get the benefits of these organisms when.
B12 is essential to help us get through emotional hardships, exposure to toxins of all kinds, combating pathogens, and so much more. These experiences can severely stress the nervous system, liver, and adrenals which diminishes any B12 reserves you might have. When you take a quality B12 supplement and eat living foods with elevated biotics on them, you are more able to support and protect the body against hardship. Vimergy and Global Healing Center make quality B12 supplements.
Because the soil has become depleted of minerals, just about everyone is deficient in zinc. Of deficiencies, zinc and B12 are the greatest threat to our health. Zinc is essential for a strong immune system and liver. Symptoms and conditions can take hold much quicker when we are deficient in zinc because pathogens can take over easier. We are all exposed to pathogens, but they run rampant when we have a weakened immune system and a zinc deficiency.
The liver stores zinc so that it’s able to protect the body from foreign invaders. Even though the liver is able to store, it is in constant need of more since the mental and physical demands are high upon many of us. Zinc fights viruses that are the underlying cause of most chronic symptoms and conditions, including autoimmune conditions. It even helps to stop new exposure to cold, flu and other viruses before it has a chance to proliferate and take hold.
You can find zinc in sprouts, microgreens, collard greens, pumpkin seeds, radishes, artichokes, nettle leaf, parsley, onions, and raw honey. It’s also important to supplement with a high quality zinc supplement like the Vimergy or Good State zinc sulfate.
Ester C or Liposomal C
Most of us understand that vitamin C is important, but probably not just how important. This is another incredibly common nutrient deficiency that can contribute to just about any disease or condition. Vitamin C boosts the immune system to protect us against viruses, bacteria, mold, and more. It is essential to get enough of it if you are battling chronic illness or symptoms.
The right kind of vitamin C helps cleanse the body, repair neurotransmitters, and restore the central nervous system. It also supports the detoxification process which is critical to reverse illness. The best sources of vitamin C are Ester C and Liposomal C.
Curcumin and Turmeric
Curcumin is a component found in the root, turmeric. This ancient medicine is a powerful anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antiseptic, and anti-depressant and has been known to inhibit cancer. It helps to cleanse and purify the blood and the liver which is necessary to improve chronic illness.
In addition, curcumin strengthens the nervous system while reducing nerve swelling. By bringing down inflammation, it helps to get nutrients distributed. It is a foundational piece to bring in when attempting to reverse chronic illness. Especially for those suffering from arthritis, IBS, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, lupus, or other autoimmune conditions. Gaia and Vimergy are the suggested brands.
Additional Medical Medium Supplements
Sovereign Silver is a great, gentle antimicrobial to introduce. It’s important to stick to this brand or another high quality nano-particle silver so it doesn’t accumulate in the body.
Cat’s Claw is a powerful antiviral that can be highly beneficial when bringing down conditions caused by Epstein Barr Virus. As with any tincture, just make sure it’s alcohol free so we don’t add more stress to the liver. If you are sensitive, start slow.
Lysine strengthens the immune system and is a powerhouse when it comes to killing viruses.
Lemon balm is one of my all time favorite herbs. It calms and repairs the nervous system while also fighting off viruses and bacteria. You can use it as a tea and a tincture. Make sure you buy an alcohol free tincture if you are using it in this form. Check out this recent post of mine all about this amazing herb.
Parting Thoughts on Supplements
I have found that most people can reverse their conditions using primarily these mentioned Medical Medium supplements. Getting direct sunlight gives nutrients a super boost. It enhances the ability for the body to absorb and utilize nutrients. Hanging out in the sun even for just for 5-10 minutes can be highly beneficial in this way.
I understand what it’s like to want to just dive in so that you can hurry up and feel well! Unfortunately, when we rush things, it can backfire. You want to give the liver a break, so try to keep to the basic supplements until further along in your healing. With any of these supplements, it can take time to feel an improvement. It can also take time to get up to high doses. When sensitive, always start slow and low. Maybe add in only one supplement at a time.
Be patient with your process and know that you are not alone on your journey. Blessings!
