Dr. Bailey's Current Regimen

People always ask what I take. Here is my current regimen that evolves along with the latest scientific data.  
This is my personal protocol of vitamins, supplements and drugs. It is very important that you create your own personal regimen. Unfortunately, we do not have tests yet to tell you the optimum level of these products. Soon we will and you will need to work with a qualified health care worker to sort out the optimum program for you. Shortly, I will be bringing a questionnaire to this website that will assist you in finding the right program for you for nutrition, fitness, sleep and healthy supplements. Here's my commentary on the various supplements, most of which you can get on Amazon. I have no affiliation with Thorne or Jarro, though they seem to deliver a quality product. All the doses below are what I take and may not be appropriate for you. Please check online if you decide to take any of these as to the optimum time and the optimum combination of supplements and drugs that you should take together. Some should be taken with a meal, some should be taken before or after a meal - like B vitamins and vitamin D3 should be taken with your first meal of the day.
