Given the pandemic for a little over a year, much emphasis has been placed on health and staying healthy. Granted it is inconceivable to see so many affected by the coronavirus, yet it is impractical to say you and your family are not affected by COVID-19. Everyone in the global world are affected by this deadly virus. The numbers of deaths are staggering as surges are reported in every section of the nation. New cases and hospitalizations exist in our communities everyday. One lingering threat is those with pre-existing health issues; the risk is higher for those with serious medical conditions.

I was diagnosed with breast cancer over ten years ago and an autoimmune (LEMS) disease nearly ten years ago. My blood counts were low, my white blood cells on average at a level 2.5 (2500) or even lower out of a 10 count. My red blood cells were sometimes lower than normal too below 4 (4000) count. For the first time within ten years, recent lab results showed my blood counts were in normal range. My hemoglobin is in normal range also between 12.0 and 15.5 grams per decimeter. Hemoglobin is essential for transferring oxygen in the blood from the lungs to the tissues. Iron is an essential element for blood production and found in the red blood cells. It is also needed for the immune system to combat viruses within the body.

I am not a medical doctor, although I hold a Ed.D. in Education. I can not give medical advice; I can only tell you what worked for me. One important task was reversing my illness through natural supplements. For the past few months, I increased my vitamin intake, which produced significant results. If you follow this regimen, it will help you. The proof was in my blood tests. My wounds from surgery last mid-September have healed very quickly this month. My lateral dorsal in my right foot healed 67% in one week, a healing which was unheard of, according to my physicians. My wounds are 82% healed from infections; 15% improvement this past week. I have finished all antibiotics, as my foot is healed enough. I will finish skin grafts next week. In addition, I will have all surgical pins removed next week. The neurologist has discontinued monthly IVGs, as I’m well enough now. I’ve had these infusions for nearly ten years, two consecutive days per month.

I met a brilliant medical doctor in Atlanta who is an immunologist and a wound specialist. I was skeptical at first that anything could help me. I had developed E.coli in November and then Pseudomonas a few weeks ago. I had a second surgery in late November to debride (scrape out) the infection. I was told I could have a secondary infection from the pins itself. IV-antibiotics were the only source of treatment for both infections, as oral antibiotics were not strong enough.

Researching these elements, I found these vitamins an enhancement in my healing. Please do not deter from these vitamins and it’s important that you follow these regimens daily until feeling better. Then, you can minimize your dosage or cut in half after a couple of months. Vitamins A-E:

Vitamin A – 50,000 units daily

Beta-Carotene – 100,000 units daily

Vitamin B-100 – 2X daily

Vitamin C – 5,000 units daily minimum. This is especially important to prevent viruses.

Vitamin D3 – 50,000 units (can be taken twice daily at 25,000 units)

Vitamin E- 1,000 units daily

These dosages sound extreme, but what was needed in order to start neutralizing my blood cells. It took me about two to three months to see physical and metabolic results. I will add other supplements this week. It’s not a cure-all; just an enhancement for well-being and wound healing.

Also, if undergoing cancer treatments, please reconsider standard treatments of chemotherapy. There is a medical treatment of computerized stereotypic hits in radiotherapy in which the cancerous site is treated, not healthy cells. Dr. Gil Lederman in Manhattan treats all types of cancer (primary and metastatic) except blood cancers/disorders. The treatments are non-invasive, painless, without surgery or bleeding. Please call his office directly to set up an appointment, possibly through a virtual consultation. It could mean the difference between life and death.
