There are good and bad nutritional supplements. It's important to know the difference so you don't unknowingly interfere with your treatment or even worsen your symptoms by taking the wrong types.

If you treat yourself using information from a Healer Medium and take a nutritional supplement that is not recommended by him , you may not experience the benefits you expect. In this article, you will learn about some of the bad supplements, and for a more complete view, read the entire chapter on supplements in the book "Cleanse for Health" to have all the information you need for your healing.

Some basic nutritional supplements to avoid include:

  • Whey Protein
  • Codliver oil
  • Collagen
  • Chlorella
  • Multivitamins
  • Nutritional supplements for hair, nails and skin
  • Nutritional supplements from glands
  • L-carnitine
  • Blends for gut health
  • Iron supplements (that aren't plant-based; see iron-rich foods below)
  • Dietary supplements with hydrochloric acid
  • Sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) for internal use
  • Diatomaceous earth

There are specific reasons why each of these types of nutritional supplements can be problematic. Let's take a closer look at some of them.


An amino acid called carnitine is the best fuel for herpes viruses and other pathogens. L-carnitine is also not useful for cancer. Always stay away from this amino acid in concentrated supplement form.


Although modern, chlorella does not properly remove toxic heavy metals and differs significantly in its effectiveness from the five foods in the Healer Medium's Toxic Heavy Metal Detox protocol ( wild blueberries , Atlantic dulse , barley grass juice powder , cilantro, and spirulina ), which successfully remove toxic heavy metals. Chlorella is useless when it comes to protecting against the dangers of metals like mercury.


While there are some decent multivitamin supplements out there, the problem is that they are a supposed mixture of different vitamins in forms that may or may not be beneficial to someone. Also, multivitamins contain so many ingredients (often dozens) that there is only a fraction of each nutrient in the mix, usually along with supplements. Such a small amount of any nutrient (assuming it's even the right nutrient in the right form, which it often isn't) will do nothing for someone who needs to treat a chronic illness.

Nutritional supplements for skin, hair and nails

These nutritional supplements are often mixtures of many ingredients, so they have the same problems as multivitamins. Their main drawback is that the ingredients in hair, skin, and nail supplements rarely contain ingredients that actually improve health in those areas. This is because the causes of skin, hair and nail problems are still largely unknown in the medical and health circles. How can a nutritional supplement company develop an effective product for skin, hair and nails if they don't actually know the real cause of these problems and which ingredients can help address them? You will get much more benefits for your skin, hair and nail health if you look up the health problem you are facing in the "True Cause of Symptoms and Conditions and Doses to Treat Them" chapter of the Cleansing for Health book and follow the suggestions for supplements and dosages there (you can visit the Supplements section of the Healer Medium site for recommendations of specific brands and products for what you've found for your symptoms or condition in the Health Cleanse ).

Nutritional supplements from glands

Animal-produced glandular supplements are prime food for pathogens and cancers that thrive on concentrated animal hormones. Be cautious when taking supplements containing, however small, concentrations of beef or other animal organs or glands. These are low-grade steroid compounds and they are often prescribed by doctors for the adrenal glands and other endocrine glands and organs. Glandular supplements suppress the immune system, which can prevent it from hunting for pathogens.

Whey Protein

Whey protein is a byproduct of dairy products that creates inflammation by feeding pathogens. In addition, it usually includes monosodium glutamate.

Fish oil supplements

While it's okay to eat wild fish from time to time, especially if you're a fish lover, fish oil supplements are another matter entirely. One would think that it is the same, but in fact the difference is huge. The main problem is the mercury and dioxins that are found in most of the fish used to make these dietary supplements. When you eat fish with mercury in the meat, the mercury tends to stay mostly in the intestinal tract, liver and stomach area. A completely different and more dangerous case is when you consume fish oil supplements. Although manufacturers claim that physical mercury has been removed from their dietary supplements, this is an impossible and unrealistic claim. In fish, mercury is mostly concentrated in the volatile omega oils. So when millions of fish are processed for their oil, mercury levels are at an incomparably higher level. The process that supplement manufacturers then use to try to reduce mercury actually destabilizes the toxic heavy metal. It becomes a highly digestible, homeopathic version of itself. This concentrated mercury found in fish oil supplements has the ability to cross the blood-brain barrier and easily enter sensitive organs, bypassing and disrupting the body's systems. It can also strengthen and feed pathogens. Instead, look for an omega-3 dietary supplement that does not contain fish, but is plant-based and derived from algae.

Food supplements with iron

Although iron in the right amounts is good for you, Epstein-Barr , herpes zoster and other pathogens feed on this metal. Almost all cases of anemia are caused by a low-grade viral infection. Therefore, you should avoid iron supplements that are not plant-based. Increase iron naturally by consuming spinach, barley grass juice powder , parsley, wild blueberries , grapes (black, purple or red), blackberries, cilantro, burdock root (in juice), potatoes (with skin) , cabbage, sprouts, pumpkin, pumpkin seeds (in small amounts), asparagus, sulfur-free dried apricots and other fruits, green leafy vegetables, herbs, wild foods and vegetables relatively high in iron. EBV, shingles, and others are unlikely to consume iron from these sources because fruits, green leafy vegetables, herbs, wild foods, and vegetables contain natural anti-pathogenic properties.
