Del-Immune V® and Side Effects

Elin Ritchie, M.D. is a medical doctor trained in Canada at the University of Manitoba in Winnipeg. She graduated from medical school in 1992, and from a family practice residency program in 1994. She is a Board Certified member of the American College of Family Practice (ACFP). Dr. Ritchie currently practices integrative medicine in Taos, New Mexico.

Recently, I received a letter from a patient who had some trepidation about taking Del-Immune V®. The patient was wary of potential side effects, as that had been a problem with other supplements in the past. I knew exactly where the patient was coming from, as I had a terrible reaction to some Chinese herbs once that really surprised me. It made me a bit leery of a lot of other remedies.

I have been taking Del-Immune V® over the years myself and have recommended it for a lot of my patients, too. What surprises me is that not one single person has called my office with an adverse side effect from taking it. This is most unusual, as I almost always get a call from at least one person taking any particular supplement I give them complaining about an undesirable side effect, and then I usually refund their purchase.

In fact, Del-Immune V® is one supplement that I routinely recommend for patients who are sensitive to other medications or natural treatments. It seems to balance their immune system so they have fewer adverse reactions to other treatments they might need.

Sometimes, if someone is especially reactive, I will use applied kinesiology to test for what they can take. This is the type of muscle testing that a chiropractor can do.

If you are still concerned about potential side effects of Del-Immune V®, start with one capsule per day for a while and make sure you feel good with that before taking more.

  1. I have been impressed with what I have read about Del-Immune and decided to take it. Once the capsules arrived I recalled that I had read somewhere that it might not be the right thing to take if you have an auto-immune problem such as low thyroid function. Could you please advise me.

    1. Thank you so much for your question Liz! It is fine for you to take Del-Immune V because it has no affect on Thyroid diseases. Del-Immune works on a different basic system of the body and. Thyroid is an endocrine and Del-Immune V involves the immune system.

      Thanks again!

  2. I have been taking Del-Immune V for about a year and am happy to report that I haven’t had any colds or illness. I was wondering if it is safe for pregnant women to take Del-Immune V.

    1. Hey Carol,

      Thanks so much for your comment! I am happy that you are staying well and using Del-Immune V to support your immune system. Because of liability issues, we don’t recommend Del-Immune V for pregnant or nursing women. We certainly have doctors who have given it to pregnant/nursing women, but we don’t make that recommendation. Feel free to consult your physician about taking Del-Immune V while pregnant or nursing.


  3. I am just recovering from Endocarditis, no surgery required. This is particularly good news in that I have always had a hole in my heart and a MV prolapse. I take 10 mg of Monophril a day and need to built up my immune system after being on high does of antibiotic for 6 weeks (have been off antibiotics for 5 weeks so far), Would Del-Immune V be Ok for me to try?

    1. Dianne, thanks so much for your question! Since Del-Immune has no toxicity or interaction with any drug or supplement, it would be great for you to try. Please keep us updated on the results.

  4. My 10 year old cat was diagnosed with IBD and has been on a low dosage of prednisolone (2.5 mg twice weekly) since 4/2010, but I am concerned about the long-term effects of this medicine and would like to find an natural alternative. Is Del-Immune effective for feline IBD?

  5. Well, I did have side effects, but I realized why. Shortly after starting Del Immune, I began passing parasites. So, I’m thinking that the side effects I had were not from the Del Immune, but from the die-off. I have been treated for parasites before and have gone through die-off before. I was pretty impressed that Del Immune can make the body kill parasites! And so quickly! I don’t pass parasites unless I’ve been on a treatment for at least 10 days, and it involves taking 6 herbal capsuls. Have you heard from other people who have had a parasite die off from taking Del Immune? I was only taking one a day. I have a host of other problems, including Chronic Fatigue syndrome, with high HHV-6 levels. I did temporarily stop taking it because I felt so crappy from the die off and I have a big event coming up.

    After the event is over, I plan to give myself some time to really let the Del Immune get its work done.
