This site has a wealth of information about supplements that you can take to boost your immune system. It also has other valuable information and a recipe to an immune boosting smoothie.

I don't agree with the dosing on Vitamin C for us because I think we should take a higher amount since our immune systems are compromised. Starting off at 1000mg and slowly working your way up to 3000mg is what I was told to do.

CajunGrl,

Thanks for the link!

My doc actually has me taking 10,000 C morning and 10,000 C evening. That's 20 hard to swallow pills a day, yuck! As I've told you before, I am game for anything that will make me feel better.

I have a question for you...

I live in Southern California (raised in the Midwest with all the deer ticks!), I go the the Holtorf Medical Group in Torrence, CA. They specialize in Lyme, CFS, Fibermyalgia, hormone therapy....I don't know that my doc there, which is an "MD" is an LLMD. I assumed he was because of the nature of the practice and the enormous cost! Do you know about this group or how I can find out if the doctor is LLMD? Is there a difference?

Thanks

Hey hun,

20,000mg is a huge amount but I'm no doctor. Instead of taking all of those pills, you can get a Vitamin C powder called C Aspa Scorb. It has 4000mg in one teaspoon. It also has Magnesium, Zinc, Selenium, Manganese and Potassium in it. It's a bit bitter but you can add Stevia to it to help with the taste.

You can email Ticker about that doctor. I have never heard of that group but she may have. You can also find out alot about a doctor from googling them. Here is Ticker's email:
ko_@bellsouth.net

I hope this helps!

Big help from you as usual! I will email Ticker and look into the C powder you recommended. You're wonderful!

I bought Ester C for my daughter because she gets sick alot and I didn't think it worked that well for her. We are all different though. I just give her the regular 1000mg of vitamin C with an echinacea.

Vitamin C is water soluble so overdose is very rare. Do watch out for side-effects of high doses like diarreah which can lead to dehydration.
