On this page we’ve compiled some of the foods and supplements that are mentioned in the book, along with some recommendations for specific brands that are known to be good quality.

Healthy Origins Probiotics
Healthy Origins probiotics have 30 billion CFUs per capsule and 8 individual strains of bacteria. They contain important probiotic strains like Lactobacillus Acidophilus and Bifidobacterium Lactis. Just as importantly, they are shelf-stable. This means you can be sure they will arrive at your house with the bacteria alive and intact, and they do not need refigeration.

Soil-based organisms are incredibly durable, and easily survive exposure to our stomach acid on the way through to our intestines.
These products contain several different antifungals, so that you don’t need to buy them individually. Taking them in combination gives your immune system a better chance of breaking down the Candida biofilm, and may prevent the Candida overgrowth from adapting to a single product.
