Supplements To Avoid For Healing Chronic Illness

Supplements To Avoid For Healing Chronic Illness

There are good supplements and bad supplements. It’s important to know the difference so you don’t unknowingly hold yourself back from healing or even make yourself more symptomatic by taking the wrong types.

If you stay on a supplement that’s not Medical Medium– recommended while you’re trying to heal with Medical Medium information, you may not see the benefits you want to see. It’s best to read the entire chapter on supplements in Cleanse to Heal for all the information you need for healing.

Some key supplements to avoid include:

  • Whey protein powder
  • Fish oil
  • Collagen
  • Chlorella
  • Multivitamins
  • Hair-nail-skin supplements
  • Glandular supplements
  • L-carnitine
  • Gut powder blends
  • Iron supplements (that are not plant based; see iron-rich foods below)
  • Hydrochloric acid supplements
  • Sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) taken internally
  • Diatomaceous earth

There are unique reasons each of these supplement types can be problematic. Let’s take a closer look at some of these below.

L-Carnitine

The amino acid called carnitine is a top fuel for herpes and other bugs, too. L-carnitine is not helpful with cancers, either. Always stay away from this amino acid in a concentrated supplement form.

Chlorella

Although trendy, chlorella does not remove toxic heavy metals properly and is vastly different in its effectiveness from the five foods in the Medical Medium Heavy Metal Detox protocol (wild blueberries, Atlantic dulse, barley grass juice powder, cilantro, and spirulina) that do successfully remove toxic heavy metals. Chlorella is irresponsible when it comes down to protecting you from the hazards of metals such as mercury.

Multivitamins

While there are a few decent multivitamin supplements, the problem is that they are a guess blend of various vitamins in forms that may or may not be beneficial for someone. Also, multivitamins contain so many ingredients (often dozens) that there is only a speck of each nutrient in the blend, usually along with fillers too. Such a small amount of each nutrient (assuming its even the right nutrient in the right form which it often isn’t) won’t do anything for someone who has health problems to heal.

Skin, Hair, and Nails Supplements

These supplements are often blends of many ingredients, so they have the same problems that multivitamins do. Where they really fall short is that the ingredients in hair, skin, and nail supplements rarely contain ingredients that truly improve health in these areas. This is because the cause of skin, hair, and nail problems are still largely unknown in medical and health communities. How can a supplement company design an effective product for skin, hair, and nails if they don’t actually know the true cause of these problems and which ingredients can help address them? You will get far more benefits for skin, hair, and nail health if you look up the health problem you are experiencing in the chapter titled “The True Cause of Your Symptoms and Conditions with Dosages to Heal” in Cleanse to Heal and follow the supplement and dosage suggestions there (you can refer to the Medical Medium Supplement Directory for specific brand and product recommendations for what you find for your symptom or condition in Cleanse To Heal).

Glandular Supplements

Glandular supplements made from animals are prime foods for pathogens, and cancers, which all thrive on concentrated animal hormones. Be cautious when taking supplements containing concentrations, however small, of bovine or other animal organs or glands. These are low-grade steroid compounds, and they’re often prescribed by doctors for adrenals and other endocrine glands and organs. Glandular supplements suppress the immune system, which can hinder the immune system as it seeks out pathogens.

Whey Protein

Whey protein is a dairy byproduct that creates inflammation by feeding pathogens. Plus it usually includes MSG.

Fish Oil Supplements

While it’s okay to eat wild fish sparingly if you’re someone who loves fish, fish oil supplements are another matter. You would think it’s all the same, but it’s actually very different. The primary issue is mercury and dioxins, which are present in most of the fish used to make these supplements. When you eat fish with mercury in its flesh, the mercury has a tendency to stay mostly in your intestinal tract, liver, and stomach area. It’s another, more dangerous story when you consume fish oil supplements. Although manufacturers say that the physical mercury is removed from their supplements, it’s an impossible and unrealistic claim. In fish, mercury concentrates itself mostly in the volatile omega oils. So when millions of fish are processed for their oil, mercury levels are at an unparalleled level. The process that supplement manufacturers then use to try to lower the mercury content actually destabilizes the toxic heavy metal. It becomes a highly absorbable, homeopathic version of itself. This concentrated mercury that ends up in fish oil supplements has the ability to cross the blood-brain barrier and quite easily enter sensitive organs, bypassing and disrupting the body’s systems. It can also strengthen and feed pathogens. Instead, look for a fish-free, plant-based, algae-derived omega supplement.

Iron Supplements

Even though iron in the right amounts is good for you, Epstein-Barr, shingles, and other pathogens feed on this metal. Almost all cases of anemia are caused by a low-grade viral infection. You should therefore avoid iron supplements that are not plant-based. Increase your iron naturally by eating spinach, barley grass juice powder, parsley, wild blueberries, grapes (black, purple, or red), blackberries, cilantro, burdock root (juiced), potatoes (with skins), kale, sprouts, squash, pumpkin seeds (in small amounts), asparagus, sulfur-free dried apricots, and other fruits, leafy greens, herbs, wild foods, and vegetables with relatively high amounts of iron. EBV, shingles and others are unlikely to consume iron from these sources because fruits, leafy greens, herbs, wild foods, and vegetables contain natural anti-pathogenic properties.
