  • I have suffered from a widening array of allergies and constant cravings for sugar and bread. I was miserable most of the time while taking allergy medication. After following your step-by-step directions for 6 weeks, I am recovering! I am now, as I write this lines, almost symptom free. I recommend anyone who is affected by allergy caused directly or indirectly by candida yeast infection to read your book. It is so easy to read (even for me - English is not my native language) and to apply. I cannot thank you enough for your counseling service and for the knowledge and health you have brought into my life. ★★★ http://scamcb.com/index7/pdf
