It was also found that the increase in symptoms was related to the increase in dosage.

    Dr. Jeff, thanks for putting the Plan together. I just finished a couple of days ago and haven’t felt this good in years! I was able to stop my blood pressure meds, which my doctor told me that I’d always be on. Eczema is gone. Energy is great. Lost only 2 more pounds during the final 4 weeks, but about 22 over all. I’ll be contacting you for the heavy metal and parasite cleansing protocols, but will enjoy my new life for a few weeks before diving in to greater levels of health. Keep up the good work!   [End]

  • McCombs Plan Update - Week 7   RR Success by leem9905  5y   1,877
     
    I’ve been on the McCombs Plan now for nearly 7 weeks & I thought I’d check in with my results. ... ... I am doing much better!
