According to The New England Journal of Medicine, two independent research teams discovered that genetic mutations in two proteins involved in the pathway responsible for recognition of fungal beta-glucans substantially impaired the immune system’s ability to control fungi. What this means is, if these mutations are in your family genes, then you would have an increased risk for fungal yeast problems.
This is very upsetting news. I know you said it doesn’t mean my infestation can’t be cured, but I had little doubt that candida was curable previous to this information.
So I had to dig up the post where DVJorge talks about the immune shots
Th1/Th17, known as a cell-mediated immunity is the immunity that protect us against candida.
Everyone of us who has followed intensive anticandida programs without results have a problem with Th1/Th17. When this is working properly, it isn’t necessary diet neither months on antifungal to correct a yeast overgrowth. Consider it the normal immune response healthy people have.
So, chronic candida sufferers need to find what is suppressing or affecting cell-mediated immunity. As far as I know, most of the time this suppression is acquired and not genetic.
It is necessary to balance the immune system and to rescue Th1 to overcome yeast problems.
Am I in controversial territory here? Or is the answer plain and simple? Of course now I’m hoping that the shots would help me.
