I take 10-15 supplements every day, and all of them help me, because I'm always healthy and never sick.
However, from my own experience I already know what really helps me is my vitamin D3 supplement. However, as to vitamin D3, there are 3 recurring issues:
ISSUE #1: Your vitamin D3 dose needs to be individualized, so you need to periodically get a blood test known as "25-hydroxy-vitamin D", abbreviated as "25(OH)D", which is the vitamin D metabolite that is measured by medical labs, worldwide, to determine your vitamin D status.
ISSUE #2: Medical DOCTORS can harm you. In part because they're no experts on vitamins. And in part because they follow certain medical cartel protocols that were designed to harm you.
Example A: At the very most, they prescribe only 2, 000 IU of vitamin D3 per day. Why? Most likely because the more vitamin D deficient you are, the more money the medical cartel can make off of you.
Example B: When, at age 79, one of my close relatives needed help with her osteoporosis, one M.D. prescribed her vitamin D3 at a ridiculously low dose of 500 IU per day. Why only at 500 IU? Most likely because, the more sick you are, the more MONEY the medical cartel can make off of you. And, indeed, her M.D. never cured her osteoporosis. Further, her visits to her doctor increased exponentially. Further, Big Pharma made a killing on their overpriced pain killer meds that gave her a bunch of negative side effects that made her life miserable, and eventually killed her shortly before her 80th birthday.
ISSUE #3: Medical LABS can harm you. In part because they're no experts on vitamins. And in part because they follow certain medical cartel protocols that were designed to harm you.
Example A: Vitamin D intoxication is defined as 25(OH)D greater than 150 ng/ml; see www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2665033/. However, your med lab will likely ignore this very safe upper limit of 150 ng/ml, and give you a couple of FEAR messages, if you dare to be in the upper hemisphere of this 30 to 150 ng/ml range.
Example B: My med lab unilaterally and arbitrarily decided their 25(OH)D's reference range was "30 - 80 mg/ml". Further, their lab report falsely claimed my 25(OH)D was "toxic" when it was 149.2 ng/ml. In effect that lab report gave me a couple of FEAR messages, and subtly pressured me to limit myself to their 80 ng/ml upper limit that wasn't supported by science. Why? Most likely because the more vitamin D deficient I am, the more money the medical cartel can make off of me.
Example C: My most recent medical lab test report caused me further harm when it prompted me to overreact and halt my usual 11, 000 IU per day vitamin D3 dose for 10 days. In other words, right after reading their partially misleading med lab report, what did I do? I overreacted and started pausing my usual dose of 11, 000 IU per day. And what happened next? I had BRONCHITIS, all of a sudden, by day 10.
Example D: When I restarted, I did it at 6, 000 IU per day. Why only at 6, 000 IU? Because my med lab report influenced me negatively. In retrospect, I should've restarted at 10, 000 IU per day, not at 6, 000 IU per day.
Naturally, no sickness is ever good for anything. However, this sequence of events is valuable to me, because it clearly demonstrates to me how important it is for me to A) never overreact, and B) to always take a sufficiently large enough dose of vitamin D3, every day.
ISSUE #4: WHEN I HAD BRONCHITIS, how did I cure it? Well, on day 10, I simply restarted my vitamin D3. That was all that I needed. And, indeed, I could tell right away my bronchitis was starting to clear up. Further, today it's already day 13, and I can tell for sure that I'm on the right track, as about 90% of my bronchitis symptoms have already cleared up.
Further, these last two paragraphs clearly demonstrate to me that my vitamin D3 is the most important supplement for me.... I hope this will help somebody!
I have been in the healing profession (practitioner, researcher, advocate) for 30 years, nothing comes close to my experience with MSM, I am so sorry it took this long to try it. My chronic asthma gone in 3 days!! On albuterol for almost 40 years. I am in shock.
Some side effects which I consider to be cleansing symptoms: nausea, sleeplessness and skin breakouts, but I did start on a high dose of 20 grams a day. After three weeks no more 'side effects'.
My energy has greatly increased, I feel quite euphoric every day now. The only time I had that kind of euphoria was by drinking three glasses of organic green juices a day. I think people on heavy medications, mercury fillings, toxic diet are going to have more difficulties with it, so building up from a small dose with extra vitamin C and plenty of pure water will help.
The other supplement that really helps is Vitamin D3, I take 16,000iu liquid daily, no colds for two years now and my chronic bronchitis of 20 years has disappeared. Some years it was mild, others severe, triggering serious asthma attacks.
So the combination of Vitamin and MSM has been miraculous for me. This great website encouraged me to try MSM. Thanks so much.
p.s. Brushing my teeth with MSM has whitened them.
