Believe it or not I take all of these vitamins, herbs, and supplements everyday and I haven’t had a cold or UTI in 2 years. My hair and fingernails grow so fast I need a manicure every week and haircut every month. After my two back to back summers in the hospital in 2007 and 2008, I haven’t been sick. I eat a high protein, high fiber, low fat, low sugar, diet MOST of the time. However, I still allow myself a treat sometimes like a few pieces of good chocolates, a scoop or two of really good ice cream, or a slice of cheesecake.
I realize it seems like a lot of pills but if you split them up and take some 3 times a day it’s not so bad. And some of the herbs are taken AS NEEDED so you may find you’re only taking those every couple of days. If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to email me.
