i am using NOW brand inulin mixed 50/50 with gum arabic. i believe i am going to switch to mixing it with aribinogalactan. i think once i am where i want to be, that mix alone in small inexpensive daily doses is all i will need to maintain my "garden". i will then investigate diet further to make my food my medicine. there is no reason to be taking anything not supplied ready to eat in nature. i am just fixing what i (with doctors and modern industry help) have already broken. i cringe every time i even HEAR the word "antibiotic". it is just what it says - against physical life.
