Stage 6:  Specific to YOU!

You don't NEED anything in this list per se to survive.  But, you might find things to help you feel better, make better choices, or have more energy!

Alpha Lipoic Acid

Most people in the US have Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver (NAFLD) disease.  It’s one of the most pervasive underlying causes of other problems like heart disease and cancer.   The liver actually expands inside the body as it tries to deal with all of the junk food, processed foods and toxins, etc.  It’s part of the reason why you see big abdomens even on thinner people.   Luckily there is something you can do about it.  I would recommend an herbal Liver Support complex, as well as Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA) which works wonders at helping the liver and reducing belly fat.  If you take ALA, take a B Vitamin Complex occasionally (only in the morning as it can keep you awake if taken at night) or an organ supplement.  Click the PDF file button for an amazing interview with Bert Berkson about how ALA saved a couple who had been left to die of liver poisoning.

Omega 3 - C15:0

If you don't eat Sardines or Wild Salmon often, most people get too many bad Omega-6 vegetable oils in their diet and not enough good Omega-3.  

Many Omega 3 products are rancid before they reach your door, and taking bad Fish Oil is worse than nothing at all.  C15:0 is the first fatty acid to be discovered in 90 years, and it is in capsule form and cannot degrade/go rancid like most oils.

Vitamin B17

In the remote regions of the Himalaya Mountains is a tribe called the Hunza.   A man’s wealth in that community is measured by how many apricot trees he owns.  The most prized part of the fruit is the tiny seed inside the pit. 

The rate of cancer in the Hunza people is ZERO.

Vitamin B17 is also known as Nitriloside, and sometimes called Amygdalin. When the B17 is isolated and concentrated for cancer therapy, it is called Laetrile. B17 is found in the pits of fruits including apricot, apple, cherries, peaches and plums; as well as lima beans, sorghum, and clover. You should eat only as many seeds in a day as you would eat the actual fruit.  3-5 apricot seeds per day is a reasonable amount.  Buy them on Amazon.


In some studies, people taking B17 had an almost 0% chance of getting cancer.

Bromantane is a exciting Nootropic which can help with physical and mental performance, brain function, immune health, and overall energy.   It was developed by Russia in the 1980s to give soldiers more stamina and energy for long days of training.   Bromantane is an actoprotector, meaning it is a class of compound which can boost physical activity, especially under extreme physical conditions.

Sorry, WADA athletes, but Bromantane is actually a banned substance for you because it actually does do the things it claims to do, which is provide an unfair advantage in races.  

The effects of Bromantane can last up to 11 hours, so it should be taken in the morning.   Ask us about getting a sample to see if you can benefit!


Bodybuilders have known of the muscle building power of creatine for a long time.  It also helps with cognition, muscle repair, age-related bone and muscle loss, testosterone production, and heart health.  But there is no benefit to the old-style method of cycling large amounts. Instead take up to 5 grams each day, preferably in two doses.    This is a cheap supplement available everywhere sold in various powders, capsules, etc.

Apple Pectin

There’s a reason why the phrase “An apple a day keeps the doctor away” has survived the test of time.  The pectin found in apples and several other fruits has the ability to detox heavy metals quickly.   In fact, dosing with apple pectin removed 75% of the radiation from victims of the Chernobyl nuclear meltdown in just 5 weeks.  It is also helps with digestion, regulating blood sugar, lowering blood pressure, and fighting cancer.

Betaine HCL Pepsin

Acid Reflux or heartburn much?  It’s possible that you have too little acid in your stomach rather than too much.  Too little stomach acid impairs digestion of many nutrients including iron, and make food sit in your stomach longer, which can be uncomfortable.  Put the chalky antacids back in the box and try adding some Pepsin and enzymes instead.


If you or anyone you know struggles with depression, alcoholism, bipolar, PTSD, brain fog, etc. then Niacin is a huge part of the answer. Depression is sometimes a deficiency of micronutrients in the body, and niacin is a common problem.  The trick is to take enough niacin to make a difference.  500 mg is a maintenance dose but with depression you could take 3-4 grams a day in divided doses.  You might see a change after a couple of weeks of high dose with depression, but full recovery might be several months.  Also, niacin causes a flush which is why I recommend specifically INOSITOL HEXANICOTINATE, it's flush free.  There’s a book listed below which is essential to learn more about Niacin if you know someone who needs it.  Niacin is also good for preventing cataracts.

Modified Citrus Pectin

Your fight or flight response is supposed to kick in when you get chased by a moose.  But in our digital world, our body can get stuck in a cycle of overreaction caused by never-ending text messages, driving in traffic, and high-stress lifestyles.   The underlying cause of this is an overproduction of Galactin-5.   It can also kick in overdrive due to Lyme disease, parasites, toxins, or mold.   Modified Citrus Pectin fills the receptors that Galactin-5 usually fill and stops the cycle of fight or flight.  Modified Citrus Pectin needs to have a low molecular weight to be biologically effective.   It is available under the name brand Pectasol in powder, chewable or capsules.  You can start out by taking up to 15 grams a day in divided doses on an empty stomach.  After a while, the maintenance dose is 5 grams.  A bottle of these chewable tablets over a month brought back my lost sense of smell from c0vid.

Collagen, Bone Broth and Gelatin

Unless you eat nose to tail of the animals that provide you your meat, you are missing out on the most important parts for good health.   Animal bones and ligaments provide the ingredients which help our own joints, skin and bones stay healthy.   If you don’t want to gnaw the end of a chicken leg, then bone broth and collagen powder can help retain healthy skin, prevent strains and sprains, and give us the raw materials to heal ourselves.   Add these to soups or hot teas.   Gelatin (Jello) eaten 1/2 hour before physical therapy, or a hard workout, can help heal ligaments too.  Bring on the green jello!  Make your own bone broth at home, too.


If you are taking statins, you NEED to supplement C0Q10.   Also please reconsider the need for statins at all.   Side effects of statins include muscle pain, nausea, organ damage and increased blood sugar.  Hey, your body needs cholesterol to function properly.  Really.  Do some research.  Anyway, C0Q10 can help with your mitochondrial health.   The mitochondria are the powerhouses of your cells, and stronger mitochondria make your cells function more effectively.  C0Q10 may also help with healthy fingernails and skin.   If you take regular C0Q10, take it with some dietary fat to help with absorption.  If you go with MitoQ, their research says just take it on an empty stomach.


Kava is a drink which originated in the South Pacific, and been used there socially for centuries.  In fact there are probably more Kava bars than alcohol bars still today.  In larger doses, Kava can provide a slightly euphoric effect, yet it is not addictive and much safe than alcohol.  It can also be used to boost energy, improve athletic performance, and help with relaxation.   Ben Greenfield has several podcasts about Kava.  Buy pre-made drinks, or brew your own like a native.   I like to add a bit of heavy cream and stevia to cut the bitter flavor when sipping it with friends.


Unlike cigarettes, which can have up to 7000 different carcinogens, nicotine alone has many health benefits, including for your brain.   Getting nicotine via patches or gum, rather than an instant cigarette hit, slows down the absorption to almost 20 minutes, making it less addicting.   Addictive personalities beware, it can still be habit forming!  Use sparingly, and only in the morning or early afternoon.  I chew 2mg gum, which is a tiny amount compared to a cigarette, but it’s good for long drives to stay awake, or a burst of creativity.


The Keto diet has made Ketones into a household word.   Yet the ability to buy liquid exogenous ketones has just been available in that last couple of years.   Those first products cost more than $30,000 each...lucky for us, the cost is now less than a cup of coffee.   Ketones can help with fasting, energy, brain health, and exercise.  With liquid ketones, your body can actually use two different fuels at the same time, ketones and glucose.   They taste pretty bad, but it's worth the grimace to check them out.​


Mushrooms can be powerful immune system boosters and are also good for cognitive ability.   Paul Stamets is a mushroom expert and has amazing books on the subject if you want further reading.   Mushrooms also give foods that hearty, umami flavor.   A mix of mushroom powder added to soups or stews is a great way to combine flavor and nutrients.
