Over the course of my personal experience with (and recovery from) chronic illness, I have literally tried hundreds of supplements.
During my trials with various products, I found many supplements to be only marginally helpful. However, I have found a handful of “winners,” and have decided to feature them on this page, since I often receive questions about which products I use to support my own health. I have grouped the supplements by category, though there is overlap between categories for some of the products.

Berkey Water Filter (Various Sizes) – I have been using a Berkey Water Filter for five years now, to filter all of my drinking and cooking water. It sits on the countertop and needs to be filled with water from the faucet. It comes with carbon filters that remove pathogenic bacteria, heavy metals, chlorine, pharmaceutical drugs, and pesticides. You can also purchase additional fluoride filters for removing fluoride. Available here:Big Berkey BK4X2 Countertop Water Filter System with 2 Black Berkey Elements and 2 Fluoride Filters
Sperti Vitamin D Lamp - As someone who is unable to tolerate oral vitamin D supplements, I have struggled for years to find a alternative solution that could help me raise my vitamin D levels. I recently learned about the FDA-approved Sperti Vitamin D lamp, and have been using it to correct my vitamin D deficiency. It has raised my vitamin D levels and is also helping improve my energy and mood. This is definitely worth the price if you need a rich source of vitamin D but are unable to take vitamin D supplements.
