Well, you gave me the general descriptions concerning the ways each of the supplements were used, but I already knew what they were; I was just curious as to what your specific problems were that made you think you needed each one.

So am I ok for omega oils then without fish oil?

I’m not sure what you mean. You’re getting fish oils from both vitamin A and vitamin D; that is if you purchased authentic A and D made from fish liver oils and not some synthetic form.

have been found to have antiseptic and antifungal activity

So does oregano oil, and it’s on your list as well; plus it’s stronger. That’s what I’m talking about as far as supplements overlapping. Doing this isn’t at all necessary – unless you just need to get rid of some money.

Capsule form, It has the ability to swell up to 50 times its initial volume when added to liquid. This bulking action can play an important role in maintaining regularity and gastrointestinal health

Good luck on that one. Psyllium has been known to cause internal bleeding. There was a gentleman on the forum months back who insisted on using it and ended up in the emergency room one night with internal bleeding.

Lapacho is the herb that’s known commercially as Pau d’ Arco; there are at least 18 species of Lapacho but only 3 are actually medicinal in value. Do you know where yours was actually grown and which type it is?
The main reason I wouldn’t want to (and never did) take Pau d’ arco combined with psyllium is because psyllium has been known to cause very small lacerations in the intestines and lapacho causes the blood to thin increasing the possibility of excessive bleeding. The two are a bad combination.

Richard, the only two things I would really advise against is Pau d’ Arco and the psyllium. The others certainly shouldn’t cause any harm.
As far as the Pau d’ Arco herb is concerned, I would suggest Nettle Leaf herbal tea instead; this will help to protect against the loss of copper while you’re taking your Molybdenum, plus it serves well as a general mineral supplement containing calcium, iron, zinc, chromium, silicon, manganese, magnesium as well as other trace minerals and vitamins. The minerals in nettle leaves are also easily extracted in water. It’s also a multi-purpose herb in that it acts as an astringent, contains antihistamine qualities against allergies, it’s used to detox the blood, treats arthritis, treats anemia, treats and prevents eczema, treats sinusitis, and aids kidney function. In addition, it’s a strong antioxidant making all of the above the reason that it’s on our protocol starting with the cleanse to the end of your treatment.
