My Favorite Products
- Last Updated: 29 October 2015 29 October 2015
This page is a collection of my favorite supplements. These are products that I have used or do currently use as part of my "Better Health" program or have gotten very good reports from others. I welcome any comments or suggestions you may have. I am always open to learning about new products that may be better than some of those that I currently consider to be at the top of my list. I expect this list will change over time, but do think these are good options.
I have attempted to break them down into categories such as Antimicrobials, Detoxification, and so on.
The products listed below are NOT presented in any specific priority. Always consult with your healthcare provider before starting anything listed on this page.
- Beyond Balance MC-BB-1, MC-BAB-1, MC-BAB-2, MC-BAB-3, MC-BAR-1, IMN-R (formerly Immune Restore), IMN-V (formerly ImmunoVira), MC-REGENATO-1, MC-PROTA-Z, ENV-N, and Parazomin
Beyond Balance offers comprehensive herbal blends that may be helpful for people dealing with Lyme disease. Some of their products include MC-BB-1, MC-BAR-1, MC-BAB-1, MC-BAB-2, MC-BAB-3, IMN-R (formerly Immune Restore), IMN-V (formerly ImmunoVira), MC-REGENATO-1, MC-PROTA-Z, ENV-NM, Parazomin, and others. I personally have been on protocols incorporating these products and have seen very positive shifts. More details on these products can be found here. Custom protocols can be developed by Susan McCamish CTN via Better Health as discussed in my blog entry here.

- Supreme Nutrition Morinda Supreme, Vital Guard Supreme, Melia Supreme, and Golden Thread Supreme
Some of my absolute favorite products come from Supreme Nutrition. Morinda Supreme has been helpful for both Babesia and Bartonella. Vital Guard Supreme may be useful for Borrelia. Melia Supreme is very broad-spectrum (as are many of the antimicrobials from Supreme Nutrition), and Golden Thread Supreme may be helpful for those dealing with Protomyxzoa rheumatica.

- Maypa Herbals Formula-L, Formula-Bart, Formula-Bab, and Formula-Green
The Maypa Herbals products were formulated by an herbalist and medical intuitive. They are a unique combination of herbs that I have found very helpful. I used these products for almost a full year with good results. I find that they can be very effective but do not seem to product the same Herxheimer response that many other options do.

NutraMedix Samento, Cumanda, Banderol, Enula, Mora, Lakato, Hottuynia
NutraMedix Samento, Cumanda, Banderol, Enula, Mora, Lakato, and Hottuynia are excellent herbal preparations that can be helpful to inhibit the growth and presence of various microbes. I personally have used Samento and have alternated between Cumanda and Banderol on regular cycles. Enula and Mora may be a good option for intracellular infections such as Babesia. I have used them both.
If one is looking for options other than antibiotics, the "Cowden Protocol" which is based on NutraMedix products is a very well-planned treatment option that you may wish to consider in conjunction with your healthcare provider.

- BioPure Quintessence
BioPure Quintessence is as close to the "Buhner protocol in a bottle" that I have seen. This product is one that I have used along the way for dealing with Lyme and related infections. It is one of the key components of the Klinghardt Lyme Cocktail discussed here.
- Systemic Formulas TVIVI
Systemic Formulas TVIVI is one of my go-to remedies for viral issues.
Sources: Systemic Formulas
- Seagate Olive Leaf
Seagate Olive Leaf may be very useful in dealing with viral issues.
Immune Modulation and Support
- Myco Formulas Immune Defense
One of my more recent favorites is Myco Formulas Immune Defense. It is a blend of many mushrooms that may support the immune system and fortify the body's response to various microbes.
Sources: Myco Formulas
Transfer Factor LymPlus is a transfer factor product that may be useful for people with Lyme and co-infections as well as some of the major viruses such as EBV, CMV, and HHV6. I started taking this at a dosage of 1 capsule at bedtime for the first month and then increased to 2 capsules each night at bedtime. Transfer Factor PlasMyc is another excellent product from the same company that supports the body against numerous microbial attacks, including Mycoplasma.

- Researched Nutritionals Transfer Factor Multi-Immune
Researched Nutritionals offers Transfer Factor Multi-Immune which may be a good option for supporting immune function and addressing various microbial infestations. I think that many of us focus so much on Lyme that we overlook all of the viruses that are also impacting our health. Having a product like Transfer Factor Multi-Immune in a protocol may be a very wise way to support the immune system to address things that are not always considered.

- Beyond Balance TOX-EASE, TOX-EASE GL, TOX-EASE II
TOX-EASE, TOX-EASE GL, and TOX-EASE II are blends of numerous herbs that may support optimal detoxification. I have used these product several times during my recovery and find them to be very useful options in supporting the body's ability to detoxify. More details on these products can be found here. Custom protocols can be developed by Susan McCamish CTN via Better Health as discussed in my blog entry here.

Pekana Homeopathics (apo-HEPAT, RENELIX, ITIRES)
Pekana Homeopathics (apo-HEPAT, RENELIX, ITIRES) are some of the best homeopathic products I have used to support drainage and detoxification. They are for the liver, kidneys, and lymphatic system respectively. They may be a good base for supporting the body's ability to detoxify. In my opinion, everyone with Lyme disease should talk with their doctor about adding these into their foundational program. I've also had excellent results with TOXEX and MUNDIPUR which are both from Pekana. The only caveat here is that at times, apo-Hepat, can be too provoking and may be best replaced with Syntrion SyDetox using SyDetox, RENELIX, and ITIRES.

Healthforce Intestinal Drawing Formula
Healthforce Intestinal Drawing Formula is a powerful binder for many different toxins. It includes Zeolite, Charcoal, Bentonite Clay, and other detoxification-supporting substances.
- BioRay LiverLife
BioRay LiverLife is an excellent product for supporting the liver, a primary organ of detoxification.
- Eclectic Red Root
Eclectic Red Root is a product I have used to support movement of the lymphatics and detoxification. It was excellent for me when I was detoxing heavily from the use of GcMAF therapy.
- BioPure Chlorella
BioPure Chlorella has been a staple in my recovery. I often chewed 30-40 tablets about 30-45 minutes before a meal. There are so many benefits to chlorella including that it may be helpful for detoxification of heavy metals. BioPure carries a high quality chlorella product that is what I personally use. Jarrow carries a number of chlorella products as well such as Yaeyama Chlorella.
PectaSol-C is a fiber or binder that assists the body in the process of detoxification.
Heavy Metal Detoxification
Please see my Heavy Metals page for more detail on my experience with heavy metal detoxification.
Longevity Plus Zeo Gold
Longevity Plus Zeo Gold supports detoxification. It is a product I use daily mixed in water with Bio En'R-Gy C.
Sources: Longevity Plus
ACZ Nano is a zeolite spray that I have used extensively over the past couple of years. More details on this product can be found in my article entitled Total Body Detox: A Novel Approach to Lowering Total Body Burden.
Note: There has been a lot of discussion on whether or not the aluminum contained in zeolite products is a potential problem or not. I do personally like ACZ Nano, but it is known that zeolites contain aluminum. Many suggest that the aluminum does not remain behind in the body, but others disagree. Do your research and discuss with your doctor before deciding whether or not zeolite is right for you.
Life Enhancement NanoCurcuminoids is a product I used to reduce inflammation. It is also sometimes used in the Klinghardt Cocktail.
Pekana INFLAMYAR is available as a liquid homeopathic, a topical cream, and pellets. This product was something I used regularly when doing GcMAF therapy to reduce inflammation.

Hypercoagulation and Biofilms
Boluoke is likely one of the strongest options for dealing with hypercoagulation available as a natural option. Dr. Klinghardt once said that everyone with Lyme disease should consider (with your doctor) Boluoke as part of their treatment protocol.

Another excellent adrenal support products is Adreset from Metagenics.
- Natura Health Products Vital Adapt
Vital Adapt is a product I learned about in early 2010 at a Klinghardt conference. It is created by Donnie Yance, a well-known herbalist. It contains a number of adaptogens that may be helpful for those of us with chronic illnesses, high stress lives, burnt out adrenals, and more. A product data sheet can be found here.

Rhodiola Rosea is a product that a practitioner suggested for adrenal support. It was one of the only things I did to support my adrenals after we found that I had Stage 4 Adrenal exhaustion.

Essential Fatty Acids
BioAstin astaxanthin is one of my recent favorites. There are so many amazing things that astaxanthin may do in the body including reducing inflammation, helping with memory and cognition, protecting the eyes and liver, and much more. For a full list, visit this site.
Metagenics EPA-DHA Extra Strength
Metagenics EPA-DHA Extra Strength is my fish oil of choice. I generally use both plant-based oils such as YES Oils above and fish oils.
- YES Parent Essential Oils
YES Parent Essential Oils are seed-based oils that are discussed in the book "The Hidden Story of Cancer ". They may be a much better option for adults as opposed to fish-oil based essential fatty acid supplements.

Nature's Way Krill Oil
Nature's Way Krill Oil is another oil I regularly incorporate into my protocol.
Carlson's Norwegian Salmon Oil
Carlson's Norwegian Salmon Oil is another excellent product and one of several fish oils I use daily.
Please see my Probiotics page for more information. I am a big fan of rotating probiotics. While I have one or two that I use fairly consistently, I like to rotate in other brands so that I'm not using all of the same ones everyday. I think it is ideal to rotate probiotics over time.
HealthForce Friendly Force - "The Ultimate Probiotic"
Friendly Force is made from an excellent company and contains 25 billion probiotic organisms per capsule.
Source: HealthForce Nutritionals
Dr. Mercola's "Complete Probiotics"
Complete Probiotics contains 35 billion probiotic organisms per capsule with 10 specially-picked strains. It is one that I use very frequently.
Supernatant is a probiotic that I learned about from Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt. I have used it as one of my favorite probiotics. BioImmersion makes a number of superb probiotic products and is probably the best probiotic companies I have found.
Sources: BioImmersion, Inc.
Nexabiotics is another favorite. It has 20 different beneficial strains and is priced very reasonably. Plus, they offer a money-back guarantee. Not bad!
Natural Vitality Organic Life Vitamins is a liquid multi that I found after having tried several other products. For the price, it is a fantastic deal. It is also organic and tastes quite good.
Minerals of Life
Minerals of Life may be one of the best multi-mineral products on the market.

Bio En'R-Gy Cis an advanced form of vitamin C that allows for much higher dosing levels without the gastrointestinal side effects often observed at much lower doses.

It contains zinc, manganese, B6, biotin, and other key substances that are deficient in those with the KPU condition.

Lipo-Spheric Vitamin C from LivOn Labs is a liposomal vitamin C option that may provide much better absorption of Vitamin C than other available options.
