power foodsAuthor: Dr. Bridget 

1. Broccoli sprouts– contain some of THE most detoxification-stimulating and anti-carcinogenic compounds
2. Rosemary– a high power antioxidant
3. Turmeric– strongly anti-inflammatory and cancer preventing
4. Artichokes, more artichokes, and then more artichokes- an all around detoxifier
5. Pomegranate, berries, red/purple grapes, peels from unwaxed citrus– for the antioxidants

6. Brassica vegetables, including broccoli, cabbage, bok choy, radishes especially daikon, turnips, cauliflower, kale, collard, brussel sprouts, arugula- rich in compounds that support detoxification, especially in the lungs and liver
7. Bitter foods, such as frisee, endive, radicchio, burdock root, chicory, dandelion, escarole- to support bile movement, which is one major route of toxicant excretion
8. Garlic, onions, leeks– to support detoxification, especially in the lungs and liver
9. Mushrooms, especially shiitake, maitake, lion’s mane, oyster- to support immune cells with tissue repair
10. Sauerkraut or other ferments– to support an anti-inflammatory gut environment
11. Pastured organic animal liver– chocked full of nutrients required for detoxification
12. Chlorella, ground flax seeds, chia seeds, oat or rice bran– to promote healthy gut flora and bind toxicants in the gut to help eliminate them
13. Green tea– antioxidant-rich and anti-cancer
14. Throat coat tea– to soothe irritated mucous membranes
15. As many naturally colorful foods as possible- I’m not talking about Skittles here. Think purple carrots, calendula, red, yellow and orange peppers, red rice, red quinoa, purple radish, purple or orange sweet potatoes.

What’s NOT on the menu: Alcohol, sugar, foods that are grilled, smoked or fried, processed foods

Got Sick - Respiratory Specific
Catherine - San Francisco
Extra-Level Respiratory Support

Nourishing Lung tincture has been our go-to during the now-annual fire season, reducing the impacts of smoke & polluted air, and for providing overall respiratory support.
Got Sick-Respiratory Specific is a great addition for the onset of URIs and other respiratory distress, as it seems to act rapidly and deeply. It's also very effective in combination with Nourishing Lung. My husband was developing a URI following surgery, and before calling the Dr for antibiotics, he opted to try using both tinctures, together with Got Sick regular formula. Significant improvement occurred within 12 hours and he was able to clear it without medication. Highest recommendation.

Thank you for letting us know how these worked for you!

Like the ease of the capsules. Also use the powder. Excellent way to add fiber and help digestive track. Definitely use it daily.

Helps some when eating dairy or gluten on a occasional basis. Have purchased several bottles over the past few years.

Life saver!

Recommended to me by 2 Naturopaths. this product has helped me out of SIBO issues and also maintained my body's natural gastric process.
Whenever I have a flare up of digestive problems, this product, in combination with garlic and probiotics has helped me restore things without the torment of antibiotics, which destroy your gut lining. I highly recommend staying on an assigned regiment of Candibactin BR for a cure.
