Hi Nick. Thanks for the positive post. I do not take the big three or other prescription drugs. Alt meds only. Could you please post your successful alt meds. Thanks so very much. Charlie

My pleasure, Linda. Run it by your Dr. to be sure it does not conflict with current meds.
Blessings,

At the request of several members, I posted a list of supplements that I take. I am not suggesting that anyone take any supplement without first clearing it with your medical provider. This is very important.
Courteously,

Charlie

My pleasure, Jane. I listed a few supplements in my previous post and have been asked to list all, so here we go…MSM (methylsufonglmenthame), white mulberry,mushroom extract, maqui, clove, resveratrol, ground flaxseed, artichoke extract, blueberry extract, nut rim oats, aakg nitric oxide, and elderberry. I buy all these in powder form and mix with 8 oz of apple juice in a blender. Don’t like to swallow capsules. tip: I usually prepare a two week supply in zip bags.
Please understand ** I am not a medical person of any kind. Over the past few years I have developed an interest in alt supplements and wish I could find a real professional recipe. If anyone has an idea on this, or can suggest an additive to mine, sure would be glad to know about it.

Blessings to all,

Charlie

Hi Linda, Sophia and all our Brothers and Sisters on the forum. I am tied up today on a project, but will put together the info you asked for tonite, and send it to you. God Bless. Charlie

I am also praying for the NO break thru. Got off the big three because it was affecting my liver and probably other organs as well. Taking powdered NO twice daily, and several other alt supplements to boost my immune system as high as possible. Also, avocado, red onions and garlic every day. Dr reported my last ct scan as improved. I have no cough or other symptoms. Also taking prebiotic and probiotics daily, as well as Super Bio-curcurmin, Immune Senescence, and other supplements to fight Mac. May God Bless and spread His Tender Mercy to all on our forum.

Thanks for posting this. I have Mac and have been taking probiotic and prebiotic for several months. I am not taking the big 3 that my ID doctor prescribed. Eating loads of avocado and about 10 other supplements, trying to boost my immune system, hoping that will have a positive effect. If anyone might have knowledge of an alternative cocktail, please post it. Mine might be doing something — just had ct scan and dr said I was stable. If this good report continues, I will post a detailed description of my daily cocktail. Just added artichoke extract and blueberry extract. I am sure most doctors would laugh at my system, but I have always followed IF YOU ARE DEEP IN A WELL, AND SOMEONE THROWS A ROPE. — GRAB IT.
Blessings to all. Charlie.

Susie, thanks for the reply. Really good to know someone else is doing well on alternatives. I plan on sticking it on out on naturals. Dont want to find out 5 years down the road that my liver is now shot, or both kidneys are gone. No one seems to have any idea of the long term damage of the big 3. I cough very little and breathing is good.
Good luck to you on your treatment.

God Bless,

Charlie
