soybeans) gel caps (1200 mg each) a day; they may help the body breakdown and absorb cysts.
Focus on a diet based

more glasses a day.
Go to your local
health food store for the dandelion tea, lecithin.
Find non-irradiated rosemary, powdered ginger, and garlic powder
Try to sit in the sun and expose your face and arms for 15 minutes 3
times a week; if not possible, eat a tablespoon
of cod liver oil a
day, either on a salad or mix with lemon juice or cider vinegar to

your health food store. You can also
