Unsure of regimen: I have not heard of this specific regimen. Monolaurin has been advertised to boost immune system, but I don't think this has been proven in studies and I don't know long term effects.
Regarding fish oil and folic acid, both of these supplements are good for overall health and I would continue these indefinitely at recommended doses.
