How would one know when they have chelated enough iron ? And if the excess iron follows inflammation, I would say the inflammation implies the bacteria are already there (causing the inflammation) before the iron overload.
Also, one has to think about where the DMSA and EDTA is absorbed ? Is it absorbed before it reaches the part of the intestine where the inflammation is occuring ? If so, I’m going to worry it’s going to chelate the iron in my body out of me instead of the iron out of my intestines.
Id have to go back over my records to confirm but I think my ferritin took a nosedive when I took EDTA.
You don’t understand or don’t want to understand. DMSA chelates Iron. It will reduce it in a way or other inside your gut. According to the article, the excess of Iron in the intestines inhibits the growth of Lactic Acid bacteria and promote pathogens. It means an EXCESS of Iron, no the levels you normally need. Oral EDTA is an almost non-absorbed drug. It will act where you need it in this case, inside the gut. It isn’t intended to be used long term but temporary, and if possible taking an Iron free multivitamins and minerals. EDTA is more powerful killing candida than many standard antifungals, so the benefit is double. See the article.!
Yes, we need to be using all the resources because this monster is really hard to cure. If it were easy, I weren’t here long time ago.
Candida sufferers are always looking for “news” because it is nightmare to get well one time the fungus growth.
What is currently advocated is noneffective enough to deal with it in most of the cases.
Anyway, you can take or not what you want. I deserve my right to post about what I find. Who cares if you matter or not ??
