The diet does help, but please proceed with caution before you start taking probiotics, pills, drinks, and especially antifungals that people on the internet are telling you saved their life. Everyone is different, and the people on this website, although seemingly operating with good intentions, are different from you and are not medical professionals.
I say this because of all the help I received from the experts here when I started the diet, no one once mentioned that you should rule out mercury poisoning.
Yesterday I was diagnosed with mercury poisoning at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota in the United States. It is my underlying illness, and the medicine I’m on will give me a strong chance at a full recovery over the next 2-3 years, if not sooner.
The “diet” part of the fourm protocol is very helpful, and has taught me a lot of what foods I can handle, what foods are ok to have every now and then, whille I try to function normally on my road to recovery from mercury poisoning.
While I was on the forum protocol and spending a fortune on pills and antifungals, the anitfungals were pushing my already severe depression into hyperdrive. My already manic behavior became unmanageable, and I’m lucky that I didn’t cause harm to myself.
My advice to people searching for answers…never give up, and proceed with caution. I don’t think it is morally right for “experts” on this forum to be handing out medical advice…they should stick to talking about problematic foods. What worked for Able, almost caused me to commit suicide. I want everyone here to read that last sentence and realize just how dangerous it is to try and treat people over the internet without knowning the patient’s history, test results, etc.
With that said, I am very upset that in all the information I found on this forum, not once did it say that I should rule out mercury poisoning (which has the exact same physical and digestive symptoms of candida). That is very irresponsible and you are dealing with people’s lives here. You guys are spending hours of your days trying to help people…almost blindly pushing this protocol. You should exercise more responsibility when dealing with desperate sick people.
The “protocol” part of this program almost caused me to lose my job and take my life. I had severe suicidal thoughts while taking antifungals, and I haven’t had them since I stopped. PUT THAT ON YOUR TESTIMONIES PAGE. The “diet” part of this forum would have just been fine for me. Why isn’t that explained on all the “links” on this forum? More warnings and caution need to be exercised when promosing people that they will be cured by taking coconut oil and kefir.
A simple “the diet here will make you feel a lot better” and “if you want to try to reverse your candida, these medicines might help, but proceed with extremem caution, as these antifungals can cause severe depression and manic behavior in some cases”. I mean Jesus – you guys should really think about this because you are dealing with very desperate and vulnerable people. I understand you guys are enthusiatic about helping sick people, but a responsible individual would realize the world is not black and white and diseases often mimick one another. These antifungals can cause serious mental and physical side effects.
With all that said, I’m doing much better on my mercury medicine, more than I ever was while doing this forum’s protocol for 9 months, and now I’m following a lot of the diet that is laid on this website to keep my symptoms manageable so I can continue my career and get on with life while I recover from mercury poisoning.
I completely agree with you.
Even I was diagnosis with Mercury Poisoning in January this year,and since then working towards the detox.
The thing I observed here is its being presented here to people that the protocol if followed for 1-2 years would cure people of Candida.
But, when we clearly question this, we realize that none of the people who followed the protocol is yet cured, they are just suppressing their symptoms by starving.
Anyway, I dont want to get into a fight with people. I will just stop this topic here.
I remember that in the past, once you mentioned your main symptoms and I almost had the same symptoms as you. Now with the mercury factor it seems to me that we have the same issue. I just wanted to re-confirm.
Can you please let me know what your main symptoms are, and how did your doctor suggest to detox Mercury? What medicine and protocol/diet.
