To maximize the Completement Formulas – Dr. Dean has these suggestions:
1). Cut out magnesium wasters including caffeine, sugar, and highly processed foods
2). Eat PLENTY of protein – make sure you are getting a bunch of good animal protein in your diet from eggs, fish, cheese and meats.
3). Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate. Get plenty of water and add the pink Himalayan salt to every bit of water you are drinking. You should be taking in half your body weight in ounces of water – for example, if your weight is 140 lbs you should be drinking 70 ounces of water a day.
4). Take a probiotic as recommended in Dr. Dean's Supplement Recommendations:
5). Many inflammation symptoms are intensified by digestive issues and the Western Diet – meaning, yeast overgrowth. If you are unfamiliar with yeast overgrowth, or candida related complex, you can read this article written by Carolyn Dean that describes its causes and effects:

If your test results for candida are in the medium to high range then Dr. Dean recommends using a purge drink protocol of bentonite clay, psyllium husk and caprylic acid with an effective candida diet [low carbohydrate diet] to support healing and detoxification.
The ideal diet for candida related complex recovery reduces or eliminates hard-to-digest foods that stress the digestive system as well as allergens and toxins that suppress the immune and nervous systems – which basically means most carbs, fruits, etc.
