What do you mean by "support immune system as needed"?
I mean that we should get thorough testing of our immune systems and what we take for them will depend on what's found. Some of us have various types of immunodeficiencies, some have various types of autoimmunity, some have both, and some have different assortments of cytokines running amok, as well as inflammation markers, etc.
Treatments can include natural substances like andrographis, colostrum, or monolaurin, drugs like low dose naltrexone, immunoglobulins, monoclonal antibodies, anti-infectives, or in a few cases, immunosuppressants, or plasmapharesis.
Do you have any earmarked tests for mycotoxins or heavy metals? I thought the majority of these are controversial, eg many different opinions on urinary mycotoxins.
Great Plains has a respected mycotoxin test, Real Time Labs has another.
Doctors Data has respected toxic metal tests for hair, blood and urine. Ive chelated mercury, arsenic, lead and platinum using the provoked urine one as a guide over the past 10 years.
You can sit around and listen to controversy or you can dig in and look for the substance to any health claim. I've found using the above tests to guide my treatment plan to be extremely useful and a pretty good value.
Whatever Dr Klimas and Dr Kaufman do with ME patients.
They do many of the things on the list I shared, although it's worthwhile to also have a good functional medicine doctor to fill in the gaps.
