Mega-dosing on vitamins will help (dose suggestions)

I am mega-dosing on vitamins. I did this because I am medically sensitive with impaired breathing and need surgery which I can’t do now. It is very interesting to note that within 4 days of mega-dosing, my lung infection from the past 3 months went away.

UPDATE: Week 2… Lungs still very clear but getting a slight stomach irritation. Iron and zinc can be particularly upsetting to the stomach so I take those less frequently and it helped. Take vitamins with food. (LINK)

UPDATE: Week 3… Avoid ibuprofin during the virus outbreak! It will worsen symptoms (ie Advil) Here’s why (LINK) Also I highly recommend a nasal rinse. Even if you think you are clear, you’d be surprised how good it can make your breathing feel!

These are my doses in addition to a multi-vitamin. (LINK1) (LINK2)

  • Vitamin C: 3,000 milligrams in divided doses
  • Vitamin D3: 2,000 International Units daily
  • Magnesium: 400 milligrams daily
  • Zinc: 20 milligrams daily
  • Selenium: 100 micrograms daily
