Following this plan for six weeks will break up biofilms and support the growth of good bacteria, which will make it easier to keep biofilms at bay. Cook says you can repeat the protocol once or twice a year for a week to target any newly formed biofilms. And to really ensure that biofilms can’t take root, consider cutting sugar (except manuka honey) and processed foods. “When you eat sugar and processed foods, you feed the bad bacteria so they can grow stronger and form biofilms,” says Cook. Another smart move? Seasoning meals with onions and garlic. “They’re among Mother Nature’s greatest weapons against biofilms,” she says. “They’ll keep bad microbes in check.”
