Over Production of Mucous

Dr. Bob was a MD internal medicine, orthomolecular doctor, MD psychiatrist, chiropractor, and healer 65 years. He was a diabetic who lived to 108 years with only 1 side effect 2 years before he passed away. Dr. Bob practiced a system of medicine called orthomolecular medicine. It is a system of medicine that uses mainly natural substances that are non-toxic and safe in wide range of doses. It uses mainly herbs and minerals/vitamins.

Cysteine is an amino acid. Dr. Bob used supplementation of cysteine to stop or reduce mucous. I have seen cysteine supplemented by children and adults for terrible mucous problems and they were relieved or completely well within 24 hours.

Dr. Bob advised the form of cysteine supplementation called N-acetyl-cysteine or NAC. For a 180-pound man your first dose was 500 mg. After the first dose then every PM and AM, as needed, use 250 mg. Dr. Bob preferred sustained release NAC if available. Adjust this dose for body weight.

As soon as the mucous problem had cleared up Dr. Bob advised to stop the NAC. Cysteine is an amino acid that can eventually convert into homocysteine. Homocysteine can produce adverse effects in the body. It is a byproduct from the amino acid methionine. You can supplement TMG at the same time as NAC. TMG converts homocysteine into methionine, an amino acid, thus reducing homocysteine levels. If you have long-term mucous problems you might want to consider using TMG along with the NAC.

Also, the supplement OKG will help scavenge ammonia, an amino acid byproduct. This can help balance high doses of NAC. See a nutrition expert about proper NAC, TMG and OKG doses.

Dr. Bob advised all nutritional and supplemental methods include a multivitamin and mineral. Dr. Bob recommended the brand Maxilife. He said it often had the appropriate doses for most deficiencies and insufficiencies. Most stress can result in deficiencies. If your mucous is a long-term problem then this kind stress can lead to deficiencies and insufficiencies.

Dr. Bob also advised to drink plenty of water. He recommended to drink distilled water (pure water).

Note – In order for these anti-aging ideas to be successful, you must use supplements of the highest quality. Dr. Bob often said, "almost all supplement companies produce poor quality." You can consider the product page of this web site. Almost all the products met Dr. Bob’s approval. Since he passed away we have attempted to keep the same high standards.
