They mention that biofilms can be controlled by the following:
-Prebiotics and probiotics
-EDTA (what is this?)
-Iron chelating compounds
-Mucous degrading enzymes
I think I am going to get some vitamin E today!
I’m not sure what EDTA is exactly but it’s available on Amazon as a supplement. I think it’s able to help erode the biofilms and chelate some of the toxins. There’s a page on it in the slideshow and it’s mentioned in the comments on the inflammation blog (I really recommend reading more of those entries, it’s a great blog).
This is new to me but it’s quite interesting. It seems like just a few extra things need to be added to the protocol to cover the biofilm base. If you weaken them with the things mentioned in the articles, following up with your anti-fungals and probiotics will be much more effective. They’re pretty much invincible in those fibrous disease factories.
I think this could be really important for people who’ve suffered for years with candida and dysbiosis, since biofilms are practically guaranteed to have firmly established themselves. But then, maybe the candida needs to reach this kind of stage before it starts causing symptoms? Since it’s a matter of a few supplements and a slight change of approach, it seems worth a shot in any case.
I’m going to keep reading and try to decide on a set of supplements and a way of taking them. I think it could cause some serious, possibly dangerous die-off if you rushed into it.
