The Supplements Everyone Should Take. Updated on, 1-18-2022
No one can afford to take every supplement out there—nor do you need to. Every day you are bombarded by ads
to make yourself healthier by taking some pill.
It is false to think any pill collection will make up for bad diet and sedentary lifestyle.
But it is also false that vitamins just make “expensive urine”–although that is a favorite bit of disinformation doctors blithely repeat for the benefit of Pharmaceutical salesmen.
The truth is there really are compelling reasons to take supplements. But not all supplements. So how do you choose?
Ultimately, there are genetic, substrate analysis and cellular growth tests that can pinpoint deficiencies.
- Rest, oral fluids, Tylenol as needed
- Vitamin C 1 gm once a day for 7 days
- Quercetin 500 mg. twice a day for 7 days
- Elemental Zinc 50 mg. once a day for 7 days
- Close follow up with a doctor
- Rest, oral fluids
- Tylenol as needed
- Elemental Zinc 50 mg. once a day for 7 days
- Hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) 200 mg twice a day for 5 to 7 days
- Azithromycin 500 mg. once a day for 5 days or doxycycline 100 mg twice a day for 5 to 7 days.
Note if HCQ is inaccessible then use Quercetin 500 mg. three times a day in place of HCQ. If HCQ becomes accessible, then switch to HCQ.
Additional treatment options. Should be custom tailored for every patient
- Ivermectin 6 mg. twice a day for 1 day
- Budesonide 1 mg/2cc solution via nebulizer twice a day for 7 days
- Dexamethasone 6 mg. once a day for 5 to 7 days
- Blood thinners (i.e. Eliquis or Xarelto)
- Home 02
- Home IV fluids

How to get Ivermectin
These tests can certainly be worthwhile to fine tune your supplements when every other part of your wellness has been attended to. But to
start, there are some supplements that everyone should take because in many cases there is literally a world-wide
or regional deficiency of the vital nutrient.

Why Use Supplements?
Given enough time and research you can find some good supplements. But we are trying to make the process
simple and cost effective.
1..We provide only “Pharmaceutical grade” supplements. For example, the average probiotic in the grocery
contains 16% of the live bacteria listed, and even if all were present, the Pharmaceutical grade choices contain much
2. We have chosen from a variety of suppliers to give you “best in class”. You don’t have to compare 20 versions
of Vitamin D3—we’ve done it for you. We choose what is consistent with the latest scientific knowledge.
3. We are selling our supplements at the best price we can afford to do. If you find a better deal for same
quality/quantity item, you let us know.
4. Our supplements have not been standing on a box store loading dock in heat or cold, nor gathering dust on a
shelf. We buy small amounts and keep the stock fresh.
How to make your supplements effective.
Supplements taken infrequently are of little value. I know you live in a busy world, so make it convenient to take
your supplements with you. I buy a number of 1 week jumbo pill boxes that have seven compartments for days in
them. (You may use large or small depending on the number of supplements plus medication you regularly take.).
Then once every two to three months I fill my boxes with my morning hormones (or medicines) and my
supplements. When I’m home, I dump the pills into a little dish and take with breakfast or morning green tea.
When I drive to work or am on vacation I empty a day’s pills into a snack baggie and take with me. The key is to
take your medications when they need to be taken, then supplements can be taken anytime. Consistency is the
If you had to choose one supplement, Vitamin D is it. In the recent Covid outbreak, an Indonesian study of about
800 hospitalized patients showed that only ~4% of those in ICU or dead had a Vitamin D level about 30 ng/ml. In
other words, 96% of those patients who walked out of the hospital after only a mild to moderate disease had
levels above 30 ng/ml. Unfortunately, you cannot get that level from being in the sun unless you live on the
equator. You must supplement at a level that actually elevates your D above 50 ng/ml to get both the anti-viral
effect and the anticancer effect. Vitamin D is a “secosteroid”, a multifunction molecule that is key to energy
balance, important in body composition, cancer prevention, obesity and diabetes. It improves bone, decreases
dementia, decreases arrhythmia, and is generally essential to good health–because it heals the ends of the DNA
molecule. The active form, Vitamin D3 is really your most important anti-aging hormone. The current
recommendations of 400-2000 iu/ day are woefully out of date and too low. Nature gives people who live near the
equator 30,000-40,000 iu a day from the sun. I myself take 10,000 iu a day, and believe that someday even this will
be shown to be too low. In any case, in people not on renal dialysis, there has never been an overdose of Vit D3
reported at 10,000 iu a day. The minimum for adults I would recommend is 5000 i.u. a day, and if you are obese,
black, or Hispanic you might consider going above that to the 10,000 i.u. a day. After being on a Vitamin D regimen
for at least 2 months check your level. In 2018 a study done by Creighton University and UC San Diego
demonstrated an 80% decrease in breast cancer in women whose D levels were over 60.
Nearly everyone as they get older becomes deficient in Magnesium. This may be due to depletion of this vital
mineral from our soils. Testing is not helpful usually, because, by the time blood studies detect a deficiency, cells
have been low for decades. Deficiency, even before a low level appears on blood studies results in leg cramping,
constipation, inadequate calcium handling, bone fragility, and contributes to hypertension and neurologic
impairment. Not all forms of magnesium are well absorbed. Do not take Magnesium Oxide which has the worst
absorption. Use either Magnesium malate, Magnesium Citrate, or Magnesium Glycinate. Magnesium glycinate
makes you sleepy so take it at night. Any form of Magnesium may cause loose stools at first as the bowel improves
its peristalsis (squeezing). (As they say, “This too shall pass.”) If you do have frequent or loose stools, take smaller
doses and work slowly up to the recommended 400-800 mg/ day. Even larger doses can be taken to reduce blood
The Midwest is known as the “goiter belt” because of the number of people with enlarged thyroid glands (goiters).
This occurs because Midwest diets are lacking in seafood and therefore iodine. We landlocked people, even with
modern food systems, are lucky if we get 100 micrograms a day from our salt. The Japanese eat seaweed and get
about 12.5 mg/ day from this diet. Iodine not only improves your thyroid, it is an anti-cancer supplement.. The
Japanese have the lowest rate of breast cancer in the world. Iodine has been shown to decrease cancer rates in
rats, and to kill cancer cells in laboratory tests. A large study was done by a group of physicians known as the “Iodine
Project” which details the many benefits of this wonderful and critically important mineral. Our supplement is the
Japanese dose of 12.5 mg.
Everyone—even children—seem to be deficient in zinc–when tested using new highly sensitive testing. Again, this
is probably due to depletion in our soils. Supplementation with zinc has been shown to be effective in shortening
cold duration, and in improved skin healing after plastic surgery. If we were getting enough zinc in our diet to
optimize our metabolic functions, no such wound healing effect would be seen. Zinc is critical in cell to cell signaling.
You can get a small dose of zinc in most multivitamins. But recent studies show that deficiency of zinc causes the
body to substitute copper, and this elevated copper/zinc ratio is associated with cancer. In human case studies of
terminal cancer with metastases, infusions of zinc into the cancers killed both the primary and the metastases
without patient harm. So a bigger zinc supplement has large potential benefit. I try to take at least 16 mg if not
more of zinc a day. Regarding Covid, according to a recent study, 50% of those who hospitalized have zinc
deficiency. In the flu season it makes sense to take 30 mg a day. During the rest of the year you may be ok with
Liposomal Vitamin C
Vitamin C is necessary for health in a variety of ways because it renews the internal anti-oxidant system. Linus
Pauling was a brilliant researcher and the only person to be given two Nobel prizes in two “hard” sciences—
chemistry and physics. He made a very serious argument that arterial aging was unrecognized “scurvy”—or Vitamin
C deficiency. He also proposed that Vitamin C could help fight the common cold and cancer—but he couldn’t prove
it because the vitamin C he had at the time was not well absorbed. After his death, others pursued his research,
advocating IV Vitamin C which could be given in big doses without causing diarrhea. That was an improvement
because it was enough Vitamin C to saturate the immune white cells. At the first sign of an infectious intruder, your
body’s white cells suck up all the C they can find from the surrounding tissue. The problem remained that only
those immune cells in the vascular system could really benefit from old fashioned Vitamin C. But today liposomal
encapsulation (wrapping the C into a gel) allows the Vitamin C to pass through the body’s membranes with ease—
getting the Vitamin to the tissues that need it. 10 mg of liposomal Vitamin C is probably the equivalent of 50 gm
IV. In the past, experimentally, I have taken 50 gm of Vitamin C IV with some immediate effect during a viral illness.
But more recently I have taken 10-12 grams of liposomal Vitamin C and had complete reversal of cold symptoms. I
have gone from being run down with runny nose, sore throat, watery eyes in the morning, to feeling great and going
to the gym in the afternoon. Many of my patients, and I have had this experience–stopping the virus in its tracks
with Liposomal Vitamin C. Of course, it’s not the C, it’s your immune system which fights illness, and so Vitamin C
is not a 100% solution to all colds and illness. But I for one now never leave home on a trip without a bottle of
Liposomal Vitamin C. For Covid: Vitamin C is like ammunition for you white cells that fight disease. You need to
supply a little all day long. I am taking 1000 mg of liposomal in the am (but you can use any kind) then 500 mg
every 1-2 hours till I get about 4gm a day by the end of the day, I like the GNC chewable.
You are as old as your oldest part. For most people that part is their arterial system. Aging of the arteries produces
stiffness followed by narrowing. And sadly, this is followed by Stroke, Heart Attack, Dissecting Aneurysm, Valve
dysfunction and death. There are multiple lifestyle factors which contribute to this and should be corrected. But
now, new evidence has emerged that Vitamin K is critical to keeping arteries flexible. Vitamin K activates
special proteins in arteries and other soft tissues to keep calcium out, thereby helping to protect the artery from
stiffness and plaque formation. At the same time, Vitamin K activates calcium binding proteins which add calcium
to your bone improving skeletal strength. So K is a win, win by keeping Calcium where it needs to be. Recently, a
long acting form of Vitamin K called MK-7 has been shown to reverse arterial stiffness. MK-7 is the preferred way
to take you K vitamin, so it has been recently added to my top tier of supplements.
Mito Q. (a CoQ10 product)
This is a special formulation of CoQ10 that gets into your mitochondria where you need it. As the science of aging
progresses we are focused more and more on the mitochondria. The mitochondria are the tiny intra-cellular
factories that produce energy for the body using an “electron transport chain”. Coenzyme Q10 is vital for this
energy production. As a metaphor I think of mitochondria as little coal power plants. The primary job is to take
fuel (food for mitochondria, coal for power plants) and turn it into energy. Like a conveyor belt moving coal to the
furnace, CoQ10 helps transport your broken down food so the mitochondria can turn it into energy. Some people
produce a lot of CoQ10, others genetically are marginal. And, today we are bombarded with environmental factors
that deplete our mitochondrial CoQ10. These environmental agents include general anesthesia, drugs such as
Cipro, and most frequently statin drugs–which deplete CoQ10 from the basilar membrane of the mitochondria.
Depletion of CoQ10 can cause people to have muscle aches and pains, fatigue, neurologic symptoms, and can
contribute to heart failure. Recently the American Academy of Cardiology showed that giving patients CoQ10
actually lowered death and disability from heart disease. Why MitoQ? Standard CoQ10 is very inefficient at getting
into the place its needed—the mitochondria. MitoQ has a charged particle attached to the CoQ-10 which allows it
to pass into the mitochondria and supply antioxidant where it’s needed. You can buy cheaper CoQ10 and to some
degree it helps. But it is rather like water from a fireman’s hose that can’t reach the inside of the burning building.
MitoQ passes through the walls to the fire. Although at our clinic, we remain very skeptical about most topical skin
creams, we use Mito-Q am and pm topical creams to improve skin quality with great effect, because it is able to get
to the target. Mito-Q truly supports our goal of “wellness and beauty from the inside out”.
Selenium importance was known to others, but slipped by me until the Covid fiasco, when I heard several doctors
comment that Selenium is “Birth Control for viruses”. Fortunately our Enlighten Omaha brand Iodine supplement
contains 40mcg Selenium, so I had been adding some to my regular dietary intake. It is interesting to note that
Chinese soils are woefully deficient in Selenium, and in some areas children were dying of a selenium related cardiac
disorder before the government added selenium to the fertilizer in the regions. Perhaps this explains some of the
reason this virus was more deadly in China than it proved elsewhere. Selenium is a potent antioxidant, and has
been shown to tamp down inflammation at the level of DNA by inhibiting NFkB. This has led scientists to believe
Selenium plays a major role in the prevention of cancer, as well as Type 2 Diabetes, and vascular disease—the three
major scourges of our time. Don’t take more that 220 mcg a day.
Decades of research has demonstrated the benefits of NAC 9N-acetyl Cysteine) in restoring intracellular levels of
one of the body’s most powerful antioxidant defenses, glutathione (GSH). As reviewed by Life Extension, NAC can
protect against avian influenza and more common seasonal flu symptoms. NAC reduces the frequency and duration
of attacks of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and may slow the clinical course of idiopathic pulmonary
fibrosis (IPF). NAC protects tissues from the effects of exercise-induced oxidative stress, adding value and safety to
your workout. NAC improves insulin sensitivity in people with some of the most difficult-to-treat metabolic
disorders. NAC blocks cancer development at virtually every step in the process, and through multiple mechanisms,
making it an important cancer chemopreventive agent. But we have learned that NAC is particularly beneficial in
treating Covid—especially those people who have the variety with gastrointestinal symptoms. At least 600mg 1-2
times a day during illness.

12 VACCINE TRUTHS
Vaccine makers (as well as health care professionals and practices who administer vaccines) have ZERO LEGAL LIABILITY for injuries or deaths caused by vaccines per the 1986 National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act (NCVIA).
The NCVIA was in response to failing vaccine manufacturers overrun with injury and death lawsuits from vaccines, namely DPT.
The United States Supreme Court declared vaccines to be “unavoidably unsafe.” The Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP) has awarded MORE THAN $4,000,000,000 to date, accounting for only a fraction of cases filed and injuries reported.
Conflict of Interest: The vaccine manufacturers, themselves, are in charge of overseeing the safety studies. They have ZERO incentive to call out any safety issues.
Multiple vaccines contain human fetal cells (MRC-5 and WI-38) derived from abortions. The full health implications of the use of fetal cell lines in vaccines is unknown.
Vaccines contain carcinogenic, mutagenic and neurotoxic ingredients that have not been tested for impairment of fertility. There are no safety studies on synergistic toxicity.
There has been an increase of over 1,350% in vaccines given to U.S. children from 1962 to today. In lockstep with the increased vaccination schedule, there has been an increase in infant mortality, an explosion of chronic diseases and neurological issues, and an overall decline in the health of our children, especially evident in the last 30 years when the vaccine schedule spiked after liability was removed from vaccine manufacturers (see #1). All of this while under the watchful eye of our public health agencies.
Vaccine mandates violate bodily autonomy via coercion. Holding education and employment hostage to the consumption of a liability free pharmaceutical is not consent, it is coercion.
COVID shots do not meet the traditional definition of a vaccine. They utilize mRNA technology, never before used in humans. Some have reported testing positive for COVID after injection.
COVID shots are experimental (due to Emergency Use Authorization), having been tested on human subjects only since Fall 2020. They have not been FDA approved. The only way to invoke the EUA was to show that there were no other available safe treatments for COVID. We now know that safe and effective treatments were censored and smeared by authorities so they could maintain the emergency status for the vaccines.
COVID shots have not been shown to prevent disease in the recipient, nor to prevent transmission of infection, which is why the CDC states people still need to wear a mask and social distance.
As evidenced by the CDC reporting system, COVID vaccines may have caused deaths in some and severe injuries in many. Mainstream media has not been forthcoming with these reports.
Where to Get Treatment/ Drugs/ Supplements Life Extension
What to do if you are not sick but want to have medicine in your house.
1. You can get Hydroxychloroquine/Ivermectin online through www.AFLDS.com or
www.DrStellaMD.com. I am a proud member of the America’s Frontline Doctors, but am
not a practicing physician with them. I do not have anything to do with the service for
prescribing medications through them. So, if you have any issues- because they are getting
swamped–please contact them again. I am unable to intercede or help.
2. You can also go on-line to pharmacies from outside USA. Just search for “Ivermectin on line”
or “hydroxychloroquine on line without a prescription”.
3. For protocols go to www.c19protocols.com, or you can review them at this site under the tab:
“Protocols for Using Hydroxychloroquine and More”. Print out the protocol you want in case of
power or internet failure.
4. For me, here is how I do prophylaxis. If I am going to be on a plane or traveling, or I think
I’ve spent time in close contact with a vaccinated person I will take Ivermectin .3 mg/kg/day.
on day 1, and on day 3 and repeat weekly if still in a high risk environment.
5. Treatment of actual COVID disease is trickier, but if a person gets it early within 5 days
mostly it can be snuffed out with either Ivermectin daily for 3-5 days at doses in the protocols, or
Hydroxychloroquine, 400 mg twice a day the first day then 200 mg twice daily for 5- 14 days.
6. You Can Get the necessary Supplements at my site—- www.TheMedicalRebel.com under the
“Store” tab. We only carry pharmaceutical grade supplements. Or you can search your local
health food store.
7. If you are a resident in Nebraska or Iowa and wish treatment for COVID or viral illness,
you can contact my office by filling out the form below. THIS IS ONLY IF YOU NEED
TREATMENT FOR CURRENT ILLNESS. THIS IS NOT FOR GETTING A STOCK OF
DRUGS IN CASE OF FUTURE ILLNESS. FOR THAT SEE ABOVE. We sometimes for
reason of staffing are not able to accommodate any new patients.
Prevention: Prophylaxis is an action taken to prevent or protect against a specified disease.
Greek in origin, from the word “phylax”, meaning “to guard” and “watching.”
Low Risk Patients
Young healthy people do not need prophylaxis against Covid 19. In young and healthy people, this infection causes mild cold-like symptoms. It is advantageous for these patients to be exposed to Covid-19, build up their antibodies and have their immune system clear the virus. This will facilitate the development of herd immunity and help prevent future Covid-19 pandemics. However, if these patients desire prophylaxis against Covid-19, then they should take the protocol noted below.
High Risk Patients
Patients are considered high risk if they are over the age of 45, or if they are younger than 45 but they have comorbidities, that is, they have other health conditions that put them at risk. These patients have between a 5 to 10% mortality rate if they are infected with Covid-19. These patients should be strongly encouraged to take prophylaxis against Covid-19 in accordance with the protocol noted below.
Protocol for Low and Moderate Risk Patients:
Elemental Zinc 25mg 1 time a day Vitamin D3 5000iu 1 time a day Vitamin C 1000mg 1 time a day Quercetin 500mg 1 time a day until a safe and efficacious vaccine becomes available If Quercetin is unavailable, then use Epigallocatechin-gallate (EGCG) 400mg 1 time a day.
Protocol for High Risk Patients:
Elemental Zinc 25mg once a day Vitamin D3 5000iu 1 time a day Hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) 200mg 1 time a day for 5 days, then 1 time a week until a safe and efficacious vaccine becomes available If HCQ is unavailable, then use the Protocol for Low and Moderate Risk Patients.
