Here is my hypothesis about chronic sinus problems:
We have extablished that most people that suffer from chronic sinus problems are from yeast. Its seems that high dosages of Iodide work to rid of the yeast. I spoke to my friend from the nutrition company and she said that the root of the problem has to be addressed and why is there yeast there? Most likely, heavy metals are the cause of attracting yeast. Thus, the Iodide gets rid of the heavy metals compared to other means like garlic, oreganio, etc. And finally, will rid of the yeast because there is no attracting force.
What does eveyone think about my hypothesis????? SC
yeast problems. i am reminded of the blind men describing an elephant from different aspects of the animal. your hypothesis is one aspect of the problem.
the heavy metals disrupt the body's natural defenses. the Iodine both gets the mercury out of storage(not a chelator proper) and kills the yeast. the yeast wouldnt be blooming without the stored(instead of eliminated) food being there for it to feed on. yeast is also kept in check by other body flora and fauna. the good flora and fauna are negatively impacted by wrong eating, lack of proper minerals, and futile attempts to correct problems with antibiotics and similar substances.
there is never any magic bullet. it always boils down to the basics. the true cure is biting the bullet, fasting, and not storing crap afterwards by adopting good lifestyle choices. oxygenation. hydration. circulation. elimination. it all goes together.
i used to talk about ownership of our health.
we have to be owners. otherwise, we will be owned.

Mercury vapor uses the sinus cavity to enter the brain. Any partial Hg removal allows Yeast to grow, since Iodine does NOT chelate Hg it may be a Band-Aid fix by killing the yeast temporarily and mobilizing some Hg.
More so than DMSA? Interesting. Has this already been mentioned as "superior" and I missed it?
Also, w respect to your remark:
>>Mercury vapor uses the sinus cavity to enter the brain. Any partial Hg removal allows Yeast to grow
Do you recall just where you extracted this info? Fascinating. I want to know more.
N - you never cease to amaze and mesmerize. Having access to you and V, W, and T - who needs an ND, MD, OD, PhD, XYZ..?
BTW - due to your post referring to the increased "efficacy" when including h2o2 in the presence of Iodine (actually came from Battie's post which you linked) - I tried amping up the Lugols today just before my h2o2 IV. Two more treatments this week. Will continue this approach. Anything else that might receive a boost in "quality" (as was described by the researchers in that link) from the use/implementation of h2o2? Any evidence (as with the whole zapping increasing potency of herbs concept with which you enlightened me earlier) of synergy between h2o2 and freeking? Herbs (clove, eg.) I want to get the biggest and best bang out of my now more than ever dwindling $buck$.
Any thoughts on going for the glutathione IV for chelation directly (or a half hour wait time) the h2o2? Or are you entirely against these IV's from the get go?
Sorry for all the q's - but at this point, I mean business. I brought all my goodies (machines, gizmos, supps, etc.) in the event I can get some feedback here.
>> ALA is the most powerful mercury chelating agent available.
from that link:
Use of ALA is chelation. It does not need to be used with another
chelator, though there are sometimes advantages to doing so.
Using Cutlers slow small dose of ALA (note NOT RLA) could be a possible way for those with a functioning mineral cycle to detox Hg. I have not met a person with a functioning mineral cycle yet, and most are either NOT yet using ALA or using doses as small as 12mg with 25mg of DMSA and that needs to be skipped for certain days.
You really should read more than one post by Andy and see why most do better on DMSA and adding ALA later is a good idea in VERY small increments:
Read most all of them and still appears to me that he's suggesting ALA is more important (essential), while DMSA is best when used with ALA. No real matter (debate). Obviously he recommends the inclusion of both.
Does the book (Amalgam Illness) offer much more than the sites which offer bytes from his protocol? More to it than DMSA, ALA, DMPS? Wasn't it determined here or on V's forum that DMPS was not good?
That's the link I had in mind, but doesn't really answer my question. An aside -- to be perfectly honest I think Ken has some ego issues, and is not entirely trustworthy or honest. Just my opinion. (And this has nothing to do with his product, just KP as an individual.) I found one of his contributor's comments (testimonial) kind of funny. She was unable to retain B-12 until the UZ. I've read a gazillion times that even the healthiest body CANNOT retain B vitamins (supplements/injections in particular) forvery long (less than 24 hours) - best is to receive them from food sources daily, better/longer retention. Sorry, guess I've got some biases with KP. (I'm sure you saw him pretty much lose his cool if not his mind a few months back...)
I think I'll stick to McCabe's suggestions, while even his book doesn''t exactly answer my question either. (Interesting to read that he strongly advises against iron supps or high iron meals prior to any ((hard core)) oxygenating therapy.)
Yes, I momentarily forgot that referred to Povidone, not iodine. But seems the same concept/theory/evidence would apply.
Personally, I think you're onto something and I've had very similar thoughts bouncing around for a while. I do think, however, that other contributing factors (aside from Hg) exist. Immunity, enzyme levels (liver/pancreas...oral/nasopharyx and whole body flora), exposure, malnutrition, the list goes on.
yes, I would like to explore ALA a little further and whether that would chelate HG from the sinus cavity once Iodine pulls it out of the tissues.... This may be part of my problem with my sinuses since I had my Amalgams removed about 3 years ago. It was done by a biological dentist but I did have a rough time afterwards especially with blood Sugar issues. Nonetheless, I am taking ALA now.
Newport, you seem to be the expert on Hg and chelation. Would this pull it out of the sinus cavity? Or anyone else that knows. thanks.....
