Diet and Nutrition


Jake has been tested throughout this process, which has shown he is deficient in many areas.
Every supplement Jake takes is to support a certain part of his body that has been affected by cortisone. 
It took about a month for his body to start accepting the nutrients going into his body.

Jake's List of Nutrients : A lot of this is specific to the damage done (tested) to Jake's internals from Cortisone.

Metagenics Thermo Phase Detox
Bio Ceuticals RejuvenX
Chia Seed
L-Argentine (topically) Assists in the production of Nitric Oxide http://altmedicine.about.com/cs/herbsvitaminsad/a/Arginine.htm
Vit B Injections
Vit C IV
B-Dose Forte 2.5mL
Vitamin C- 30grams 3x week tapered down over the 3 months.
is a water soluble that helps the body cells hold together, aids wounds, assists in bone and tooth formation, strengthens blood vessel walls and it is vital for the function of the immune system. Vitamin C is not held in the body. The person must drink 1.5-2 litres per day to pass the excess through the body. Injecting the vitamin C is the most effective way to have it. Taking it orally only 10% is absorbed by the body.
B Injection - The injections are Vitamin B-Dose Forte 2.5mL (b1 b2 b3 b5 b6 b12) - I inject this into Jake's butt 2-3 times a week

Homeopathic's (we consult  with Dr. Isaac Golden, world renowned homeopathic teacher) in his teachings world wide, he says it's known among Dr's of the homeopathic model that Steroid users are the worst cases to take on, as they have the most suppressed immune system.
Adaptogenic Herbs Siberian Ginseng, 
Adaptogenic Herbs Licorice root extract
Adaptogenic Herbs Chamomile
Bio Ceuticals Intestamine
Zinc

Jake's diet consists of:

Organic Meat (red and white)
Organic Vegetables
Organic Fruit

Strictly No Wheat, Dairy, Gluten Alcohol and Sugar (studies show a lot of gut irritation from these foods) and little preservatives. A Paleo lifestyle basically, with some Auto Immune Paleo diet influence.

This is A) to stay as healthy as possible during the withdrawal, to nourish the body. B) because these foods are not tolerated by Jake's body
