May we recommend an alternative immune booster

Info Buttons >> Testimonials Formula ingredients Recommended Dosage Cautions
Used to relieve the following conditions

Resist combines 17 major tonifying herbs, which are proven to enhance cellular immunity. This immune system strengthening is of great value in both reducing susceptibility to illness, and in combating situations where diseases of the immune system comprimise our body's ability to protect itself. Through activation of the immune system, Resist is also said to be of potential value for cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy, and radiation treatments.



"I have a patient who has breast cancer. After the surgery she had to undergo chemotherapy. When she went for the second treatment, the doctors told her that her white blood cell count was 1.8. To have chemotherapy, your white blood cell count must be at least 2.6, so she could not undergo chemo. She was very upset when she came to see me. I prescribed Resist. Three days later the doctors examined her again, and the concentration of her white blood cells was 6.7, so she could undertake the chemotherapy easily." P. Jeekel, Amsterdam
