Immune Support for Corona Virus Prevention

Immune Support for  Corona Virus Prevention

With the rising number of Corona Virus "variants" causing concern over the current COVID-19 vaccine efficacy as well as the issue which currently surrounds the SARS-CoV-2, (COVID-19) virus vaccine availability, I am asked daily for recommendations regarding Natural COVID Protection. I have reviewed supplements for Corona virus prevention in recently published blogs and believe that I have outlined a very strong, proactive, yet simple viral prevention program in this updated blog. This program is recommended for those who want to support the immune system AND protect themselves from viruses of all types - to include COVID and Influenza (FLU), this 2021. 


ALL BLUE HIGHLIGHTS are linked to their respective link on the website 

  • Vitamin D with K2
 Osteo-PX, taken 1 daily, contains Vitamin D3 5000iu, A 2500iu and K2 500mcg/ capsule for excellent immune support. A liquid for children who do not swallow pills is- Thorne Liquid D and K2 with D3 at 2000iu with K2  in 4  drops daily
  • Vitamin C
Innate Response C-400mg 2 daily or the Innate Response C powder - ½ - 1 scoop  (1 scoop for the older children that do not swallow pills and ½ scoop for the smaller children to avoid diarrhea) 
  • Zinc 
LDA Trace Mineral Complex with Zinc 30mg – 1 daily for adults and children that swallow pills- best taken with food 
BodyBio ZINC Liquid Mineral - 7 drops daily in water provides 7.8 mg Zinc - for the children who don't swallow pills 
  •  Elderberry
             Elderberry Tincture or Glycerite   (Gycerite is for the children or when you do not want the alcohol based tincture)- each of these are 1 teaspoon daily in a small amount of water.  

    There are 2 more support supplements I recommend for those who desire extra protection - these are ImmuCare - 2 daily and T Cell Balance PX - 1 daily.


    IN ADDITION, only recently, has COVID research been seriously looking into and demonstrating the efficacy of anti-inflammatory drugs to prevent COVID deaths. Does this come as such a surprise to you, the reader, knowing that death from COVID involves Cytokine Storm and it's potential for lethal diffuse systemic inflammation? 

    •  The recent studies to support use of NSAIDs, such as ibuprofen, have been reported to reduce the diffuse inflammation produced by SARS CoV-2, and thus might prevent COVID-19 complications. Now, remember this class of drugs has been avoided since onset of COVID cases in early 2020based on a hypotheses that this class of drugs worsened COVID infection outcome.  I quote: "We should learn from unintended mistakes and make sure not to repeat them." 

    Enfla-Mend Px is my all time favorite natural systemic anti-inflammatory supplement, and is certainly a very good addition to consider for your cell protection during this 2021 viral season.

    As always, I am honored to share my knowledge and expertise in the field of Integrative Medicine; a medical practice which integrates traditional Western medicine with what is sometimes considered “alternative” or “holistic” medicine. We focus on prevention through nutrition, diet, lifestyle changes and will prescribe a combination of drugs (when needed) with botanical medicines, supplements, therapeutic diets, detoxification programs, and stress-management techniques.

    Dr. Cometa, I make my own Edlerberry syrup using organic cinnamon, rose hips, & ginger. Will that do for the elderberry part of your plan?

    Hello Rebekah,
    I trust that you had your questions answered in the current blog regarding protecting that wonderful family of yours during this viral season and of course for COVID.
    Thanks for your comment, Rebekah!

    Hi Marie-France,
    I responded to this question yesterday and it did not post. My apologies. I suggest K2 be used as MK-7 in 100-500mcg daily. I do speak to the power of K2 with the bones in the Osteoporosis blog, but in addition, K2 supports our immune system and much more.
    Thanks for asking Marie-France!

    Dr Cometa, thank you for this list. What would be a good daily amount of K2?
