My COVID Recovery Recommendations

 
Dr. Thoma here, and I just want to let you know that while I did have COVID, I am now fully recovered.
 
It may not have been as bad as I'd expected, I wish I would have got it back in March or April and been done with it. I had a little bit of congestion, a little bit of difficulty breathing, but mostly aches, pains and chills.
 
After 48 hours, I was feeling much better, and have resumed working out and doing everyday life things here at home, while I finished up my quarantine, which ended last weekend.
 
Some things that helped me get through this a little easier:
 
  • I took extra vitamin D, particularly DK fuel by PuraWell.
  • I took Standard Process Pneumotrophin to keep the lungs clear and operating correctly.
  • I increased my Vitamin C slightly.
  • I took Immuno Fuel by PuraWell.

Those are the main things that I took, which seemed to help me recover extremely quickly.

If you're one of those individuals that has come down with COVID, or...

Restless Legs Keeping You Up?

 

If you're struggling with restless leg syndrome, and it's keeping you awake at night, first thing you should do is to increase your water intake.  Next is to increase your magnesium and try CoQ10.

Killing Viruses

 

Dr. Thoma here, I want to talk to you about viruses today.

Many of you know about the Coronavirus, and all the horrible things that go on with it, but many individuals don't know that there are good viruses out there.  Viruses that are actually good for your gut. They're called commensal viruses, they help rebuild the epithelial lining of your gut.

Without those commensal viruses, you actually become very sick and end up having IBS IBS-C and the other things that go with having diarrhea and upset stomach. Those can be caused by killing out the healthy viruses in your gut.

When you're looking at supplements, don't look at ones that just kill off viruses indiscriminately, look for ones that help build your immune system properly. They're going to help get your immune system to the proper level so that you're not having autoimmune diseases, allergies, and that kind of thing, yet you have enough immune system to fight off the bad ones.

Pay attention to what you're...

Zinc - Too Much Is Too Much

 

Dr. Thoma here to talk to you about zinc.

Lately, I'm having a lot of patients that are having neuropathies and stomach issues because they're getting too much zinc.  The upper limits of zinc should be about 40 milligrams, maximum 80 milligrams, in special situations.  

I see a lot of individuals taking multiple zinc supplements along with zinc lozenges, and it's causing quite a bit of distress. They're coming in with feet they can't feel, tingling in the hands, and they don't realize they're getting as much zinc as they are.  

Primarily, this is because they are not adding up what they're getting in one segment and another, or they're popping zinc lozenges as candy, all day long, thinking that they're protecting themselves from viruses, and yet they're causing themselves a lot more problems.

Zinc also takes the place of copper in our body and causes some hemoglobin issues, which makes us tired and sluggish.

So, if you're getting zinc from multiple...
