This is not medical advice. If you are ill please find an experienced functional medicine practitioner. I am putting this here to give people an idea of what a base protocol to help start their healing will look like
Inflammation and oxidative stress.
Pine bark extract
CoQ10 this one a person has to ease into because it does detox cells and a person can get ill at first when taking it.
Grape seed extract.
Alternate the type of Omega threes you consume I have found alternating them to be more effective. I alternate between flax seed oil, avocado oil, coconut oil, and fish oil. Make sure the fish oil is fresh, contains lemon to preserve freshness and store it in the refrigerator.
Melatonin, if you react to melatonin it means your vitamin D levels are low
Vitamin D3 do not take over 500 IU
Magnesium I usually alternate the types I take.
Maganese and molybdenum three times a week.
Zinc but do not take high dose.
If you have high ammonia
jerusalem artichoke root
TMG plant based do not get trymethylglycine HCL that is man made. Get Trymethylglycine from plants based.
This along with the base protocol
If you have infection
Butyrate producers like Clostridium butyrica
A probiotic with a variety of bifidobacteria.
Now Probiotic 10
Lactobacillus acidophilus, lactobacillus heliviticus, lactobacillus Casei shiroto
If you have IC or excess blood clotting or numbness in hands or feet.
Grape seed extract
If you are gaining weight it indicates inhibite B oxidation. You need to increase Type 1 muscle and work on restoring mitochondrial respiration. Or if you are experiencing tight or fatigued muscles.
Eat foods high in B vitamins like mushrooms.
Increase nitrate by eating foods such as leafy greens and beets.
Increase vitamin C
If you have malabsorption you may have to use sublingual supplements until your gut heals or take megatribulus extract which increase absorption of nutrients it is consumed with.
Mucilage like kudzu root, marshmallow root or maca root
Devron bismuth but do not take too long or too often. High levels of bismuth can inhibit mitochondrial respiration.
If possible drink bone broth once in a while it give the gut the nutrients it needs to heal.
Also take a complete plant based digestive enzyme complex when you eat.
