Please be sure to read the book for guidelines for how to take the supplements. Supplements should only be used as support, not as a replacement for dietary changes.
Hydrochloric Acid (HCl) – You can find HCl products in the supplement section of any health food store. Make sure to find a product that also contains pepsin, which works synergistically with HCl. Please be sure to review the HCl challenge test guidelines in the book or work with a knowledgeable practitioner before using any HCl product. This is my recommended product.
Apple Cider Vinegar – This is option #2 in the book for stomach support and one that can be used in place of HCl. Purchase a good quality, organic, raw apple cider vinegar. There are many good products in health food stores. This one and this one are two good options.
Fermented Cod Liver Oil – Green Pasture is the only cod liver oil on the market that is using historical methods of production via fermentation. The fermentation process preserves and enhances the nutrient content, in particular, the omega-3s and the fat-soluble vitamins A and D as well as the co-factors that help absorb them. Most fish oil companies add synthetic nutrients back in due to the processing methods that destroy them. Find Green Pasture products here.
Probiotics – There are many good probiotics on the market. Make sure to find a product that has the CFUS guaranteed at the time of expiration on the bottle and a wide spectrum of bacterial strains. My probiotic of choice is Prescript-Assist as it contains 29 soil-based strains of beneficial bacteria and it does not require refrigeration. It is also been proven effective in a clinical trial. Find Prescript-Assist here.
Nourishing Traditions by Sally Fallon – An absolute must-have cookbook for your kitchen with recipes and sections devoted to fermented foods, broths, proper preparation of grains, healthy fats and so much more.
Full Moon Feast by Jessica Prentice – Inspiring and beautifully written, this book is the perfect complement to Nourishing Traditions which further explores the wisdom and healing power of traditional foods and the connection they instill in our local communities and in ourselves.

Oh Lardy’s Guide to Fermenting Fruits and Vegetables – This ebook is a nice complement to Wild Fermentation and is especially recommended if you have kids as many of the recipes are kid-friendly (which is a rarity!).
