So let me kick the ball off!

1. I take one (1)1,000 mg/day of Vitamin C tablet (Chewable)for immune system maintenance. If I feel a bacterial or viral infection coming on I increase my Vitamin C intake to 3,000-9,000 mg/day. Skin and nerve maintenance are secondary benefits of Vitamin C. Cost $7NZD/mnth.
2. I take one (1) Capsule/day (40,000 SPU) of Serrapeptase Enzyme for the PACMAN effect (Sinus & respiratory systems). Cost $5.85NZD/mnth.
3. I take one (1) 200mg capsule/day of Co Q10 for heart health. Cost $12.50NZD/mnth.
4. I take four (4) Hemp Seed Oil (Omega 3,6 & 9), 1,000mg/day capsules for heart and prostate health. Cost $21NZD/mnth.
5.Ginkgo Biloba, one (1) 120 mg capsule per day for increased blood flow to brain. I increase this to (2) capsules/day (AM/PM) if heavy duty brain function required. Side benefits increased blood flow to genitalia Smile. Cost $2.72/mnth.
6.I take one (1) capsule/day of HGH Testosterone 1500 for Pituitary Gland boost (Anti-aging)and sexual performance. Cost $66NZD/mnth. Expensive but worth it!

Total cost $115 NZD/mnth. Better than health Insurance.

I also read the following from What Doctors Don't Tell You (one of Lynne's other publications):
"Herbs as effective as drugs for treating diabetes
31 July 2014
Diabetics should introduce oregano and rosemary into their diet. The herbs are as effective as pharmaceuticals for controlling blood sugar levels, a new study has found.
The herbs interfere with an enzyme associated with diabetes that is also the target of pharmaceuticals, say researchers at the University of Illinois.
The research team tested four varieties of the herbs—from greenhouse-grown to dried commercial offerings—to see which would be the more effective in controlling type-2 diabetes.
Commercial extracts of Greek and Mexican oregano and rosemary were more effective in inhibiting the enzyme, even though the greenhouse varieties contained more polyphenols and flavonoids.
The findings are significant. Type-2 diabetes affects around 8 per cent of the population, and, in the USA alone, the annual drugs bill is around $175bn to control symptoms.

I strongly suspect that the lack of prescription drugs is a big factor in your good health Geoff. I was advised to go on a certain statin several years ago. After a couple of years a report came out that this particular drug had actually narrowed arteries and I switched to a different (very well-known) statin. However, about a year ago I discovered that in further trials it was shown that not only did statin drugs make no difference, they ALL actually narrow the arteries further by increasing calcium build-up. There were other very good reasons for coming off them too, side-effects that I don't want to mention here.

In my interactions with some people, I am noticing that more and more of them are becoming aware of the effect, both good and bad, of how their personal state affects their health, and the fact that health can be improved by dealing with those kinds of issues in a positive way. This is very encouraging.

I note that you take vitamin C. Me too! Some European Doctors have concluded that lack of vitamin C is the biggest factor in heart disease.

I am currently battling with the NZ health system in NZ to resist going on Diabetic drugs. Currently there is an epidemic of diabetes both real (Obesity related) and manufactured (Media Scare Scenarios).

I was recently diagnosed with type 2 diabetes "out of the blue."

My doctor didn't mention diet (Sugars/Starches) or exercise instead immediately prescribed MET. And also stated that this was to be a lifelong monitoring and management regime with monthly visits to him as well as regular blood and retina tests. All this because I hold multiple Heavy trade and Passenger vehicle licences. The implied threat being that if I didn't capitulate to the drug and test regimes my licences would be in jeopardy

Unknown to him I found several "cures" for diabetes type 2 on the web that relate to diet and exercise and have made major changes to my diet and exercise regimes.

I am monitoring my blood sugar measurements myself and am also meditating to cure this "new" epidemic.

Incidentally my BMI is 23.7 right in the middle of healthy!

Another very necessary vitamin is vitamin D. Most people can get their daily dose of vitamin D by going out in the sun for 20 minutes per day with arms and face exposed to the sun. BUT because of all the hype and bad propaganda about the harmful effects of exposure to the sun most people either use sunscreen or completely cover up while in the sun. The sun exposure is not the problem, BUT sunburn can be a problem, so getting a natural tan by gradually spending more time in the sun each day, until a good natural tan is built up will prevent sunburn except for very long exposures.

I have moved to New Zealand from Thailand (March 2013). I have also changed a couple of supplements as a result of new knowledge. With the increased costs of supplements in (NZD) I have updated my supplement regime & costs.

My health overall remains excellent and I am often surprised by favorable comments on how I look for my age.

Incidentally my cholesterol ratio has moved to almost normal after being high for most of my adult life!

I take no prescription drugs.

Update.

After a year of taking one Red Yeast Rice capsule every morning the results on my cholesterol are in. No change. If anything a little higher!

But then I read the directions (Should have done that a year ago?) and it says take 3 capsules a day!

Oh well I will give them 6 months and check again Lol.

I am thinking to add Collagen supplements and CO Q10 to my list and drop the red Rice Yeast. I am returning to my original Unified theory with regards to Cholesterol and thus don't need to lower HDL. See:
http://www.ourhealthcoop.com/pdf/MikeCiell_unified...

I am not sure about the Q10 though. Any thoughts?

Geoff, if you've been taking Red Rice Yeast, you are probably low in Co Q10. Red Rice Yeast, just like statin medicines lower your Co Q10 levels. Co Q10 is necessary to help cells absorb what they need for energy. It is also beneficial for many other functions in the body. It does lower cholesterol slightly, but not nearly as effectively as the Red Rice Yeast. I take it every day, as our levels of CO Q10 decrease with age. Wink

I am thinking to begin studying essential minerals for a fun exercise. Any advice?

There are Doctors in Europe who believe that lack of vitamin C is the main cause of heart disease, and that this fact is something Big Pharma is attempting to conceal. Dr. Rath is the main protagonist, and he does advise on certain minerals which are essential to good health. Some of these occur naturally in food, yoghurt for example, but not all. It's all on his site, and he's not selling anything.

Question1. Who takes essential minerals?
Question2. Who stands on the earth (Soil/sand) for 10 mins a day in bare feet?

I don't take essential minerals but I do enjoy standing barefoot (or sitting) on a grassy patch and simply enjoying.

My taking of vitamin supplements is haphazard at best. What I do insist on is avoiding "dead" water.

"Dead" water is water sourced from anything other than a well, spring (BEFORE bottling) or other natural source.

Reverse Osmosis? The water is not only "dead" but has been stripped of many minerals which occur naturally.

The good news is (with a nod to Dr. Masaru Emoto) "dead" water from the tap can be easily brought back to life with a pitcher (clear plastic is OK but glass is better—I actually filter pre-treated water through a Brita filter), the presence of plants (any type of plant, doesn't matter, but the more the better), sunlight and moonlight (allowing the water to "cure" outside, if possible, is the best of all!).

I've been doing this silly little routine for years and no longer appreciate the taste of "dead" water.
