Supplements to Help Polycythemia

Question:

Can you advise what herbs/supplements would be of use? Currently I take vitamin D, magnesium, vitamin C, Zinc, Selenium, fish oil, cod liver oil, coQ10 and occasionally a Vitamin B complex. I also drink a cup of red clover tea daily as this is supposed to be good for the spleen.

Answer:
