Holistic Health Journal
First off, I gotta say, that I think it’s really courageous of you to put yourself out there in video form like you’re doing. It’s good, because it will open the eyes of others who are not familiar with the travesty of the condition that is CFS.
Now, let me say a few quick things. Candida is NOT the root cause of your condition. Candida is the symptom of an improperly functioning immune system. Restore the immune function and you will reach a cure. This is not possible through diet/probiotics/antifungals alone. These are great tools that will allow you get the candida/inflammation under control, but once that is done, you have to begin addressing the underlying cause itself. Mercury poisoning, as TheChosenOne alluded to previously is a VERY common culprit that you will want to investigate.
My doctor has always said from the beginning I have an improperly functioning immune system. Right off the bat he said vaccines, soy baby formula, eating a bad diet and eating my food allergies all my life weakened my immune system. My mom also smoked when she was pregnant with me, and I had antibiotics when I was a teenager for acne. This all probably contributed to my compromised immune function which led to candida overgrowth. So you guys are on the same page. He just didn’t test for the candida until 5 months under his care. The first few months he had me remove my food allergies and take supplements to heal leaky gut, and then ‘detox’.
Some questions: Do you have any amalgam fillings? Do you eat a high-fish diet?
No I don’t have any fillings, but my mom did while she was pregnant with me. I didn’t eat fish much growing up, but now I eat sardines and salmon a lot.
