Kick Things Up A Notch
Even with eating a variety of the foods above on a regular basis, there are other factors that can lead to unhealthy levels of bad bacteria—high sugar or processed food intake, high sugar intake, prescription medications, high stress, and eating or drinking food and water that is not clean or sanitary. Kick things up a notch by drinking a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar (with the mother) a day, cooking with coconut oil, taking a daily probiotic, eating pumpkin seeds, or taking black walnut tincture as directed. You can even use bentonite clay as directed to neutralize bad bacteria.
