Now let me discuss 2 superb nutritional supplements for strengthening the immune system, Thymic Protein A and Mgn-3. I have tremendous success with these products in my practice. My patients consistently tell me they don’t catch colds or flu or stomach viruses like they used to. When they do start to feel the soreness in the muscles, headache, scratchy throat, cough, sinus congestion and other symptoms of an Upper Respiratory Infection (URI), they can knock the symptoms in one day if they start taking Thymic Protein A within 24 hours of the onset of symptoms. Not bad. Kick the illness in the keester before it has a chance to make you feel horrible for 2-3 weeks or longer.
Both of these nutritional supplements strengthen immune function. They can either be used as part of your anti aging program, but let me tell you how I use them in my practice:
My standard protocol is to have people take Mgn-3 daily (actually 25 days out of each month) and use the Thymic Protein-A to kick symptoms of viral illness as soon as it becomes evident that you probably have picked up a bug somewhere out there. (You actually get infected 5-7 days before the symptoms start. Viral illness have to incubate for several days, sometimes several weeks, months or years, before they manifest symptoms.)
General: 500 mg daily for first 25 days of each month. (250 mg capsules X 2/day)
High risk individuals: Some people carry increase risk for immune related ailments due to genetics or lifestyle. If you have a strong family history of cancer, are a recovered cancer patient, smoke, drink alcohol in moderation or excess, or have a history of diabetes, it is especially important to keep your immune system strong and healthy. Take 500 mg (2 250mg capsules) twice (2 times) daily for a total daily dose of 1,000 mg ( 4 250 mg capsules) for 25 days out of each month.
Special Considerations: I believe Mgn-3 has therapeutic potential for certain ailments. I prescribe therapeutic doses of Mgn-3 for patients with cancer, systemic lupus erythematosis (SLE), rheumatoid arthritis (RA), colitis, Multiple Sclerosis (MS), HIV positive, Hepatitis B and C, fibromyalgia (FM), Chronic Fatigue Immune Dysfunction Syndrome (CFIDS).
