The nutrient trio that SAFEGUARDS BREATHING

For the nearly 20 million women who have trouble catching their breath due to asthma or COPD, a trio of nutrients can help. I suggest 1,000 mg of vitamin C, a mild antihistamine that reduces respiratory tract inflammation that interferes with breathing; 500 mg of magnesium, which opens airways; and 1,500 mg of quercetin, which has antihistamine and anti-inflammatory effects. Also smart: Sip coffee or tea. Caffeine relaxes airways and metabolizes into theophylline, a compound used in some asthma meds.

The easy fix that RESTORES ENERGY

If you’re battling tiredness, brain fog, and bloat, parasites could be to blame. Our favorite swimming holes this past summer (and even our pets) may have exposed us to these invaders, which doctors rarely diagnose. Women over 50 are most at risk since levels of parasite-destroying stomach acid drop with age. I recommend black walnut and cloves to restore energy. Both contain antimicrobial agents that kill parasites, their larvae, and eggs. To try: Verma-Plus (, which delivers the ingredients in a tincture you add to water.
