The chronic antigenic response induced by an intestinal fungal overgrowth is also another cause of CMI suppression. Candida mannan is able to suppress Th2 and induces an strong Th17 pro-inflammatory response. The presence of a chronic humoral immune response is also a cell-mediated immunity suppressor by different mechanisms.
Add to all this the presence or high levels of Mercury toxicity in our bodies which is also a down-regulator of the CMI and a Th2 inducer.
This may explain why people following Mercury chelation together with an anticandida protocol are successful curing this infection. When candida and mercury don’t be the offender anymore, our immunity get in balance recovering Th1 and down regulating Th2 that cause our chronic hypersensitive state.
We have the tools guys !! Working together we will win this battle.
