• MOST Important Nutrient to Improve the Immune System and Protect from COVID (Coronavirus)


The immediate widespread use of higher doses of vitamin C can significantly slow, or stop, coronavirus.  For decades, the health community has demonstrated the powerful antiviral action of vitamin C.  Conventional medicine is not generally educated in nutrition, and because of this there is a lack of knowledge and media coverage of this successful and effective approach against viruses (coronavirus in particular). 

When attacked by a virus, it is critical to maximize the body’s natural immunity and anti-oxidative capacity to prevent and minimize symptoms.  At all times we want to tap into the body’s innate ability to heal itself and keep it in an optimal state of health.  Prevention is better than treating severe illness; an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.  Do not hesitate to seek medical attention, however, empower yourself with the knowledge vitamin C can be used along with medicines when indicated. 

Viral infections can be prevented, or symptoms minimized, with simple nutrient-based methods.  Too often we forget that good ideas are simple.  Keep in mind that certain nutrients, such as magnesium and vitamin C, can be taken to bowel tolerance (you know when you have taken too much).  Bowel tolerance can help dial in the correct amount based on your bio-individuality.  Loose stools indicate you have taken too much. 

For adults, the following inexpensive supplements are recommended (for children reduce these in proportion to body weight): 

-The types and brands are important; ask Thrive for help in all recommendations

Vitamin C: 3,000 milligrams (or more) daily, in divided doses (the type is important, ask Thrive for help in all recommendations)

Magnesium: 400 mg daily (the type is important, ask Thrive for help in all recommendations)

Vitamin D3: 2,000 International Units daily. (Start with 5,000 IU/day for two weeks, then reduce to 2,000 if bloodwork levels of vitamin D indicate; this should Not be taken to bowel tolerance)

Zinc: 20 mg daily (this should Not be taken to bowel tolerance)

Selenium: 100 mcg (micrograms) daily (this should Not be taken to bowel tolerance)

Large amounts of vitamin C is well established in treating and preventing respiratory infections.  Respiratory infections are often associated with coronavirus. Why do we often dismiss preventive therapies from long ago that we know work, such as using high dose vitamin C?  Why do governmental authorities disregard this knowledge, especially during a pandemic?  Again, good ideas are usually simple. You should be commended on educating and empowering yourself with this knowledge!

Please speak to JC at Thrive to discuss ordering supplements.  We can order supplements for the same price you find at the health store, but generally higher quality.  The most expensive supplement is one that does not work, and we only provide supplements that work and have nutrients that are absorbed by the body.  Many supplements are in a form that are not bio-available to the body, and as such cannot be absorbed.   Please allow us to assist you in your health journey with the suggested brands and types of supplements.  Also consider working with JC on your overall diet and lifestyle, please request a free consultation today. The first wealth is health, stop surviving and start THRIVING today!
