Yes the liquid form seems to be the way to go. I get the Rx Vitamins Liqui-D3 from my naturopathic doctor and per his recommendation I take 2 drops in the morning, 4 if I feel like I’m getting sick. In the Pacific Northwest, D is really important!
Don’t take Vit D late in the day if you can help it because it is a stimulant and might keep you awake.
I also take Pure Encapsulations Melatonin 20 mg once a day in the morning. Weirdly melatonin interferes with my sleep cycle so I don’t take it at night.
Best to you!
An herbalist named April Graham explained the nuances of elderberry this way: it is helpful as a preventative and during the early stages of an infection, and it can be harmful if taken when you are really sick, i.e. in cytokine storm phase. I’ll try to listen to her IG post again and give the details later.
This is from Stephen Buhner, a well respected herbalist who specializes in more complex diagnoses. Go to Stephenharrodbuhner.com for his new paper on preventing/suffering less from coronavirus. The link is under Medicine/Herbs/Healing and go to the updated protocol from 3/1/2020.
My family members near the Eastridge Development in Fairfield are almost for sure evacuating tonight to my brother and sister-in-law's house north of Berkeley. The Fairfield relatives are almost for sure totally unprepared. I really hope my 3 family households in the Bay Area are pushed now to take this more seriously. They are more "worry more, prep less" people, at least from what I can tell. And hey I've been there.
October is a funky month in the Bay Area with all the fire and earthquake history – they never want me to visit now because "everyone is jumpy". This last month has sure made me think hard on the PP emotional resiliency aspect. Prep is certainly part of it, but sure not all. Of course it's not helping that I'm reading Parable of the Sower by Octavia Butler right now.:(
I've had some funny looks recently due to my moving ALL of my prep/camping/water supplies outside into the backyard (in sealed heavy duty containers). In western WA, and after all the hurricane activity, I realized that if we did have the big Cascadia earthquake, all the supplies in the garage might not be accessible. Like Chris and Adam say about financial moves, better to feel a bit of a fool beforehand rather than a real dope afterwards! Thanks everyone on here for sharing ideas!
