When it comes to being and staying healthy, it has more to do with YOU than any virus, bacteria, or fungi. This is definitely a new take on the old saying, “It’s not you. It’s me.” Cue the Seinfeld references.
That’s right, it is YOU. Actually, it’s not only you, but also your immune system.
So what have you done for your immunity lately?
Microbes have been here since the beginning of time, and they will remain. It’s not the seed, but the soil that matters most when it comes to building a healthy immune system…or super UNAPPEALING soil for a disruptive seed (like a virus) to take root.
Early in the onset of the global COVID-19 pandemic, I stopped into a local pharmacy to buy some natural toothpaste. I overheard an elderly lady asking the woman at the counter what vitamins she “should” be taking to help protect her from the virus.
I realized how uninformed the majority of the population is when it comes to true self care and how to best support the body’s innate immunity with proper nutrition and natural supplements.
We want to change that. Be aware that not all vitamins or supplements are the same when it comes to doing what they claim they can do for you. That’s why we’re very selective about the quality of the products we use and recommend to our patients. Making sure you have the best supplements available to you, now more than ever, is one of our top priorities.
There are 3 powerful supplements that can become incredible allies to help boost your defense against even the toughest viral attacks.

Without further ado, here are the 3 supplements we recommend. Click the image of each product to learn more or add to your cart, and they’ll be shipped directly to your home.
1. Immunitone Plus™
This popular immune system enhancing supplement contains nutrients, such as Vitamins C and D, which possess strong immune-supportive properties, and also Vitamin A and Zinc to support the development and function of immune cells.
This becomes a stellar multi-dimensional combination, when mixed with certain herbs and botanicals that also support antibody and immune cell activity.
Echinacea (Echinacea angustifolia) and Astragalus extract (Astragalus membranaceus) have been known to strengthen the body’s immune system, even with severe conditions like cancer.
Immunitone Plus™ contains not only highly effective herbs and botanicals, but also medicinal mushrooms that are a rich source of immune-enhancing beta-glucans. (Wasser, S. P. (2017). Medicinal mushrooms in human clinical studies. Part I. Anticancer, oncoimmunological, and immunomodulatory activities: A review. International Journal of Medicinal Mushrooms, 19(4), 279-317. DOI:10.1615/ intjmedmushrooms.v19.i4.10.)
2. Vitamin D Supreme
Vitamin D is often referred to as “the sunshine vitamin” since the sun is a primary source of Vitamin D. However, you may not know this, but Vitamin D is not a vitamin. It’s actually a fat-soluble steroid hormone precursor that contributes to the maintenance of normal levels of calcium and phosphorus in the bloodstream. The body makes vitamin D in a chemical reaction that occurs when sunlight hits the skin. Did you know that? Oftentimes, sunlight and dietary intake aren’t enough to give your body what it needs for maintaining healthy levels of Vitamin D, so a supplement is needed. Vitamin D is a very important nutrient for your overall health and immune system function.”The conditions with strong evidence for a protective effect of vitamin D include several bone diseases, muscle weakness, more than a dozen types of internal cancers, multiple sclerosis, and type 1 diabetes mellitus,” according to this review.
3. PROBIOMED™ 100
Did you know that approximately 70% of the cells that make up your immune system are located in your gastrointestinal tract? It means that when you take great care of your your gut, your immune system will take great care of you. This particular probiotic has been heavily researched and validated — combining 10 boutique strains at therapeutically significant dosages.
