Methylation also may not address the yeast on the penis. Yeast on sexual organs can be caused by candida in the kidneys and skin problems can be directly related to liver issues (inability to detox toxins so you have to detox via the skin). Addressing methylation is great for overall general health but I think there may be more simpler things that need to be addressed to find relief and results. Examples include addressing the underlying pH, inflammation, digestive problems, dehydration, and how much you chew your food. If your sons digestion is sluggish (1 bm or less per day) than this is the first thing I would try to improve if it was me. You can address methylation all you want, but if you are constipated and not pooping enough, this is possibly a more significant problem.
I was chronically constipated, on and off, until I methylated 🙂 And die off became much less severe when I was dealing with yeast again, from using ldn.
The thing is, its never one thing, and you need to resolve the underlying cause/s which are usually definite and pretty profound in pediatric cases, its not really the same as adults.
23andme still offers the service of providing genetic data, they just dont interpret it and give risk reports anymore. Its the genetic that you need, to be interpreted by the other services I gave you links to. I wonder if the secondary rash was an allergic reaction to the cream. A different type of antifungal or possibly even the same one compounded in a hypoallergenic cream might not have the same reaction.
This article explains the basics of the immune shift I was talking about:
There are many other things that can influence that too, or just the health and capabilities of the immune system in general, related to physiology or more rarely specific immune defects. Starting to see the picture?
How long was he on methyl folate and cobalamin?
He’s been on the methyl folate cream for about 9 months, although there has been a few times where i backed off for a while. Sometimes I wondered if he would flare up a bit when I used it, although in the beginning when I used it I would have said it helped a lot. Would it feed the candida? I read somewhere that candida can flourish on B vitamins and that you should control the candida first before supplementing.
I called today an made an appt with Dr. Moore and am looking forward to it. I almost went there when the symptoms first started but found somewhere closer. Back then I didn’t know what I know now. Glad we are going on the 4th.
