A friend asked me today to write a list for the website of all the supplements I’m currently taking. Here they are, along with the purpose of each and the place where I buy them.  This may seem like an unmanageable amount of supplements, but I assure you that I have a found a rhythm with it all, and it is actually quiet to get it down the hatch according to schedule.  Eventually, I will not have to take so many, but for now this is the routine:

From Xymogen:
MedCaps T3 – Supports healthy thyroid hormone synthesis (2 in a.m. /2 in p.m.)
Adrenal Essence – Supports the stress response and adrenal hormone production ( 1 in a.m./1 in p.m.)
SerenX – Supports balance between body systems and promotes a sense of inner calm. Provides herbal support for those having difficulty resting or may have exhaused physical reserves (1 in a.m./1 in p.m.)
MedCaps IS – Supports glucose and insulin metabolism and support healthy blood lipid levels. (1 in a.m./1 in p.m.)
Oraxinol – Powerful antioxidant (2 twice/day between meals)
SeLECT E-400 – Combination of Vitamin E and Selenium. Promotes neurological health and has demonstrated antioxidant activity in cardiovascular function. (3 in a.m.)

From Eniva Corporation:
Probiotic + Optimizes digestion and the health of the intestinal environment.
Digest-EZ – Digestive enzymes to aid the body’s natural process of digestion ( 2 in a.m. with breakfast)
VIBE – Cell- ready vitamins and minerals in liquid form (1 oz. in p.m.)
Bio-Chlor – Chlorophyll complex that promotes overall body health (1 tsp in a.m. about 3 times a week- I mix this in with my Greens Shake.)
“Bone Cocktail” – 1 oz. Cell-Ready Minerals + 1 oz. Cell-Ready Cal-Mag (Calcium-Magnesium) + 1 oz. Cell-Ready Strontium + 1 oz. of pomegranate juice + 8 oz. water to build bone density

From DeLand Bakery and Natural Market:
Pantothenic Acid (500 mg) – I’m not sure why I’m supposed to take this one, but it’s a B vitamin that Dr. Rogers says I need. (2 in a.m./2 in p.m.)
L-Glutamine (1000 mg) – Supports brain function and memory (1 in a.m./1 in p.m.)
Niacin (100 mg) – I think this supports blood circulation and is supposed to help keep the blood cells from sticking together.

From www.antiaging-systems.com:
Beyond C – Enhanced Vitamin C powder with GMS metabolites

From Dr. Rogers’ office:
Super Gest – Digestive enzymes (1-2 with main meal)
ZymePro – Nutritional Support for Inflammation & Healthy Immune System (5 tablets eith 1 hour before eating or 2 hours after eating for inflammation. For prevention, take enzymes prior to physically demanding exercises.

From Dr. D’Antonio’s office:
NutriVitamin Enzyme Complex – multivitamin and mineral complex formulated for maximum absorption (2 in a.m./1 in p.m.)
Liquid Calcium Magnesium with Vitamin D for maximum absorption and bone health support (1 tsp at bedtime)
Arctic Omega – Distilled Omega-3 Fish Oil – Provides essential fatty acids that the body cannot produce on its own (1 a.m./1 p.m.)

From StemTech: ( I have become a distributor for this product because it’s expensive and I get a break by being a distributor. If you’re interested in the buying the product or in becoming a distributor, leave me a comment and I’ll get you started.)
StemEnhance – Supports the natural release and migration of stem cells in the body, thereby assisting in the maintenance of optimal health.

That’s it for the moment. I’ll be seeing Dr. Rogers again after school lets out for the summer. He may change my regimen, depending on what he sees in my dark field blood examination. My last bone scan was taken last November; I’m not sure when he’s going to order my next one. Usually you’re supposed to wait a year between bone scans, but we’ll see. In the meantime, if you have questions about anything I have written here, please feel free to send me a comment. I’m not a doctor, and I would not dream of prescribing supplements for anyone. All I can do is share what has been happening with me, and you can draw your own conclusions and choose your own course.

9 Comments on Supplement Update – What I’m Taking Now…and Why

  1. Carol says:

    I am 66 and just suffered a severe break of my humeroys (sp) bone 11 days ago. I am at the on tylenol vs narcotics stage but a decision has not yet been made for surgery or no surgery. Other than the pain, my biggest problem is anxierty and panic attacks. Taking Xanex minimally but not helping. I can use all the help and suggestions i can get. I had been on Fosomax 6 years. I regret that now. I can use any help I can get. Feeling panicked and desperate. Carol

  2. Sally Tighe says:

    Hi I have just been diagnosed with osteoporosis – my doctor has prescribed alendroic acid and adcal. I am keen to try other things – can you advise on an alkali diet and also on exercise. Thanks

  3. Kathy says:

    Hi, Kirsten. I usually use this email: kathleen_alford@yahoo.com. However, you can also write me at kathleenalford@gmail.com. I’ll look forward to hearing from you!

  4. I have some questions that I wanted to send you in an email but the yahoo address you have listed is not found when I try to send it from my gmail Is this an old address? Do you have another?

  5. Kathy says:

    Absolutely! Fosamax and the other bisphosphonates have been shown to increase bone rigidity and the risk of fracture over time. The main route for increasing bone strength is the alkaline diet (80% alkaline/20% acid), daily sunlight, and weight-bearing exercise. The supplements listed here are no longer what I’m taking. As my body has healed over the last few years, my list of supplements has completely changed. I’ll be posting a new article today on this very subject.

  6. jeannie says:

    last week i got the info about being diagnosed with osteo, my mom died of complications of this disease last year.I of course wasn’t happy to get this report. Thank you for caring enough about sharing your journey with this process The doctor says Fosomax and I say there is a better way! Can you give a run down on where to find the supplements that you take,especially the Zyme pro and the cell ready Strotium. I noticed you only take a teaspoon of calcium, I,m taking 2 tablespoons per day, can you tell me why you choose to take so little?

  7. […] 9. Eat a balanced diet that includes the recommended amount of calcium, and consider taking supplements that provide nutrients for bone-building. For a quick listing of great foods for encouraging bone health, check out my article, “Top 10 Bone-Building Foods.” For a more extensive listing, see the “Foundations” category of this website. As for supplements, I’ve been drinking a concoction that I fondly call “Bone Cocktail,” which is made of these ingredients from Eniva Corporation: 1 oz. Cell-Ready Minerals + 1 oz. Cell-Ready Cal-Mag (Calcium-Magnesium) + 1 oz. Cell-Ready Strontium + 2 oz. of pomegranate juice + 8 oz. water. For a complete listing of the supplements I take to reverse osteoporosis and build bone density, check out my article, “What I’m Taking Now and Why.” […]

  8. Kathy says:

    Yup, I take them every day. I don’t “recommend”, but I do share information with people who ask me. It’s up to them to decide what path they will take in seeking optimal health. As for me, I’ll choose the natural path to health any day over pharmaceuticals drugs and processed foods!

  9. Ryan says:

    What a list! Do you take these every day? If so, do you recommend this list to anyone?
