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.
A beneficial yeast that kills candida, mold, and pathogenic bacteria in the gut. Great for those with chronic candida/yeast overgrowth.
A spore probiotic that has antifungal properties.
Bone Broth Protein Powder
Bone broth protein and cofactors in a convenient powder form. Available in unflavored, chocolate, and vanilla.
Colostrum helps repair leaky gut, boosts the immune system, and fights infection, among many other benefits.
This silica-gel binder mops up toxins in the digestive tract. It’s great for quickly resolving adverse reactions to foods as well.
Great Plains Bentonite Detox Clay
This clay helps remove toxins (including mycotoxins) from the GI tract. It has been a staple in my recovery from mold-induced illness.
Bulletproof Coconut Charcoal
Great for binding mycotoxins, and for reducing food sensitivity reactions.
Austin Air HealthMate JR PLUS Air Cleaner – I have tried three different brands of air cleaners, and this one is the absolute best quality one I have found so far. It is well-worth the price. When I was living in a moldy apartment, I am convinced that this air cleaner prevented me from becoming extremely sick. Available here:Austin Air HealthMate Jr PLUS Air Cleaner, White
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.
