There are, no doubt, lots of safe supplements to be had. The problem is knowing which they are. The nature of pollution is such that one bottle might be safe, while another of the same brand is not. In view of this, as I found a polluted bottle, I stopped using any more of that brand. That is why I am reduced to recommending only the ones in the Sources at this time.
Common salt for student use is thoroughly analyzed for pollution.
The label gives you the final “Actual Lot Analysis” of the product.
It is not expensive.
Vitamin C, in crystal form, is a must in your lifestyle. It helps the liver, and possibly other organs, detoxify things. It also helps retard mold, and perhaps even destroys aflatoxins! Keep some next to your refrigerator so it is handy when you put away groceries. Add 1/8 tsp. to maple syrup, vinegar, cooked cereal, fruit juice, leftovers. Have 1/4 tsp. (1 gram) with each meal.
Vitamin B2, 100 mg. This is the vitamin that helps detoxify benzene! Take one to three a day. While recovering from AIDS you need 3 tablets three times a day.
Vitamin B6, 250 mg, and B-complex, 50 mg. Undoubtedly these help the liver and kidneys in many ways. One a day.
Magnesium oxide, 300 mg., is another must. Take one or two a day. It is a major mineral; all of our cells need lots of it. Only leafy vegetables provide it.
Hydrogen peroxide, food grade. It is advantageous to kill bacteria and viruses to some extent every day. Hydrogen peroxide lets you do this. It should never come in contact with metal, including its container or metal tooth fillings. If you get a few drops on your skin it may turn white and sting, but does no harm, so simply wash it off. Instructions for its use come with the product.
Herbs. These are excellent supplements, both in bulk and capsules, but not extracts, concentrates, or concoctions. There are many books that describe their uses.
Thioctic acid or lipoic acid. Presumably this chelates (traps and prepares for elimination) heavy metals, and helps the liver in detoxifying obscure and deadly poisons. Everyone would benefit from 100 mg. per day. I find it outstanding, and give it to many ill persons, even when not mentioned in the case histories. It comes as a 100 mg. capsule (see the Sources chapter). I use it at doses from one capsule, 3 times a day, to 2 capsules, 5 times a day. I have seen no side effects at these dosages, even in very sick persons.
Lugol’s Iodine Solution is old-fashioned “iodine”. Iodine has a distinctive trait: it hangs up on anything and everything. In fact, it attaches itself so quickly we consider everything it touches as “stained.” This is just the property we want to make it safe for use. The amount you use is immediately hung up, or attached, to your mucous and can not be quickly absorbed into the blood or other organs. It stays in the stomach. And for this reason it is so useful for killing vicious bacteria like Salmonella.
Do not take Lugol’s iodine if you know you are allergic to iodine. It could be fatal.
Six drops of Lugol’s solution can end it all for Salmonella. If you have gas and bloating, pour yourself l/2 glass of water. Add 6 drops of Lugol’s (not more, not less), stir with wood or plastic, and drink all at once. The action is noticeable in an hour. Take this dose 4 times a day, after meals and at bedtime, for 3 days in a row, then as needed. This eradicates even a stubborn case of Salmonella.
Notice how calming 6 drops of Lugol’s can be, soothing a manic stage and bringing a peaceful state where anxiety ruled before.
Lugol’s is perfectly safe (if not allergic) to take day after day, when needed, because of its peculiar attaching property. It arrives in the stomach, reattaches to everything in proximity. Doomed are all Salmonellas; doomed also are eggs of parasites that might be in the stomach (cysts).
Naturally, one would not leave such medicine within the reach of children. Also, one would not use anything medicinal, including Lugol’s unless there were a need, like cancer, AIDS, or bowel disease. When the gas and bloating problem has stopped, stop using Lugol’s. If one or two doses of Lugol’s cures the problem, stop. Store it in a perfectly secure place. In the past, 2/3 of a teaspoon (60 drops) of Lugol’s was the standard dose of iodine given to persons with thyroid disease. Six drops is small by comparison.
Turmeric and fennel are herbs also used as cooking spices. They can eradicate invasive E. coli and Shigella bacteria! They are completely harmless, and are part of the Bowel Program.
Other supplements. The concept of supplementing the diet is excellent, but the pollution problem makes it prohibitive. Use only supplements and brands recommended in the Sources chapter, although the best approach is to test them yourself with your Syncrometer. I can’t guarantee the brands in Sources will stay pure. If in doubt, leave it out.
