Fish Oil –This is one of the best anti-inflammatories around. I currently take 7 grams per day –That’s 7,000 milligrams. (That is a very high dose; be sure to check with your doctor if you would like to take this much fish oil.)
Acidophilus –The various Functional Medicine doctors I see encourage me to take large doses of acidophilus. I use a product called Ther-Biotic Complete made by Klaire Labs; it must be refrigerated at all times, even during shipping.
Vitamin D –Many people with illness and auto-immune conditions suffer from abnormally low levels of Vitamin D, therefore, when friends ask, I recommend that they get their blood levels of this vitamin checked immediately and then quarterly thereafter. When I was severely deficient in Vitamin D, I took a mega dose of 5,000 IU per day, until my levels reached the normal range.
Low Dose Naltrexone –Although many of you will argue that a drug is not “natural,” I beg to differ. Using this opioid agonist in micro-doses is not accepted treatment yet for multiple sclerosis and other auto-immune disorders. That’s a shame.
Grain Free Diet –Grains can wreak havoc on a weakened immune system. If I had to give one piece of advice to people with any auto-immune disorder, it would be to go on a diet that is entirely (100%) grain free (and also free of grain-like substances such as quinoa, millet, wild rice, etc). Of course, gluten is
the ultimate no-no –in 10 years recommending a gluten free diet to anyone with an auto-immune condition will probably be standard medical protocol.
