Due to past experience, I’m pretty sure I got my candida from an Overexposure to chemicals over a period of time. I read about doing a metal detox at the beginning of the diet, has anyone ever done this?February 18, 2018 at 3:05 pm #175169

Some people do a heavy metal detox, including some chelation. You have to be very careful with chelation though, as doing it too quickly can lead to some serious health problems.
You would probably need some professional advice to do that.
I would focus on improving your diet etc first, and try to get your immune system back on track. If you hit a plateau, then maybe you can get tested for heavy metals.March 3, 2018 at 3:58 pm #175232

Diatomaceous earth is believed to be good at detoxing heavy metals, as well as killing parasites and some sources say it kills Candida.
I’ve used it religiously and can attest to the parasite killing effects, as you can see dead -sites in the stool, but haven’t tested for heavy metals as of yet.
I will say that it is dehydrating so water intake would need to be upped, and breathing it can be hazardous if it gets to your lungs so it should be extensively researched before taken up.
All in all it has helped my candida treatment overall. And it gives tons of energy!
