Have a box of the supplements you plan to use if you are sick and include a thermometer, BP monitor, and pulse oximeter that gives a pulse rate as well as SpO2 reading (although Omicron does not affect lungs so this may not be necessary). The FDA, CDC and NIH have not indicated that any use of supplements is helpful for the prevention or treatment of COVID. However, these are some suggestions which may help you feel better prepared and more comfortable if you fall ill.
Be sure you are taking Vitamin D at the dosage personalized for you. Good studies continue to come out supporting its usefulness in decreasing hospitalization & death.

60 mg orally for 10 days. Lozenges can be used.
1000 mg per day. Dividing the dosage is often better tolerated.
For many, Omicron seems like sinusitis with a scratchy throat. Antihistaminergic supplements such as D Hist or Hist Reset can be used (two twice a day). Available through Wellevate or Fullscript.
Antihistamines such as Xyzal (10 mg per day) and Pepcid (10 to 20 mg per day) can also be used.
Aspirin or Nattokinase
Baby aspirin one per day or nattokinase if aspirin is not tolerated.
Two Nattopine twice a day is suggested. Available through Wellevate.
There are many anti-inflammatory supplements but these are a few
that I commonly recommend.
- Fish oil (2 gm twice a day)
- Metagenics SPM Active (2 pills twice a day)
- Curcumin (1000 mg twice a day)
- Resveratrol (1000 mg per day)
- CytoQuel (2 twice a day) – available through Researched Nutritionals
- Fresh or supplemented ginger can also be used for the sore, achy feeling we call malaise
Red Sage/Baikal and Kudzu at ½ tsp. twice a day.
Available through Woodland Essence.
N Acetyl Cysteine 600 mg twice a day and/or glutathione as antioxidants.
These supplements are available through many sources but Wellevate & Researched Nutritionals have good products.
Doubling your usual dosage can be helpful for sound sleep – one of nature’s best healing tools. It’s also a potent antioxidant and improves inflammation. Up to 30 mg per day has been suggested.
10000 IU per day for three days followed with 2500 IU for one week.
