  1. Listening to this while in bed with the flu! And this is right after finishing the Reset!! And doing most of the supplements above. Wondering now about Lyme weakening my immune system. Just had a negative blood test for lyme (western blot) This is the second time in one year i have had the flu! I am an otherwise healthy 41 year old. Thinking if lyme or coinfections are present, and just not showing up on tests, it would make me a good candidate for the vaccine. Esp since i have dilligently been doing most of tge above and jut had a month of eating SUPER foods! (But breastfeeding and don’t really want mercury exposure)

  2. Do you have the supplement site up and running yet? THANK you for doing this! It’s so hard to know which ones are good/worth it. I appreciate it! 🙂
