To clean out the toxins, he recommends anti-microbials such as raw garlic, coconut oil (its medium-chain triglycerides are said to boost the immune system in its battle against pathogens), and dried oregano. You can also find so-called herbal antibiotics such as golden seal, black walnut extract, and wormwood in health food stores.
