I like Low Dose Naltrexone first which is technically a prescription.

Though it is pricey, Transfer Factor LymPlus from Researched Nutritionals seems to help me some. It seems like when I'm off it, I don't do as well.

That's all I can think of right now! [Smile]

If deficient, I'd say D3.

I am reading a lot about mega doses of D. So that would be my pick right now.

Vitamin D

I did not do well on things like Transfer Factor that make your immune system kick in more. I already would have an exaggerated cytokine response .... supps like that one would make me feel like I had the flu, not a herx.

Given what I said about my cytokine response, Turmeric was a huge help for me. http://www.prohealth.com/library/showarticle.cfm?id=3748&t=CFIDS_FM

Everyone is different ....

http://www.infectioncontroltoday.com/hotnews/soluble-fiber-.html

""Soluble fiber changes the personality of immune cells--they go from being pro-inflammatory, angry cells to anti-inflammatory, healing cells that help us recover faster from infection," said Gregory Freund, a professor in the U of I's College of Medicine and a faculty member in the College of Agriculture, Consumer and Environmental Sciences' Division of Nutritional Sciences.

This happens because soluble fiber causes increased production of an anti-inflammatory protein called interleukin-4, he said."

Six,
I did not do well on Transfer Factor.
Everything I read said that people should feel better on it.

Over a period of two weeks I gradually felt worse and worse.
So I stopped it, and improved back to my baseline.

Thanks for the information about the cytokines.
Carol
