Posted on February 21, 2016 at 1:00 PM Comments comments (4)

Fluoride is found everywhere today. Not just toothpaste and mouthwashes, but in many antibiotics, medications, and even non-stick cooking pans. I think that most of us know that it is found in many bottled waters and municipal water supplies.

Candida (yeast) infections are on the rise; mostly due to side effects from medications, poor diet and alcohol use.
