I have systemic candida, heavy metal toxicity, AF, epstein barr, lyme and parasites. For a couple of years now I have to constantly clear my throat throughout the day. I thought it was a dairy problem so I eliminated all dairy and it didn't make a difference. Candida diet and supps do not make a difference. I have had chest CAT scans and a throat scan, where the ENT stuck a probe down my throat and they were both clear. The throat scan showed slight GERD, but the doctor said it was nothing to be worried about probably not the cause of my issue. I rarely have GERD symptoms. I sleep horribly and recently have started waking up in the middle of night coughing horribly and wheezing. I often have to spit up a huge wad of white or clear mucus when this happens. However, I almost never have a runny nose, sneezing, etc. Stress seems to make my asthma worse as well.
I never had asthma (unless I came down with bronchitis and then it always went away after the bronchitis ended), until the beginning of last year. It seemed to start out of nowhere. Again, the lung CAT scan and tests all came out normal, and the two pulmonologists I saw are at a loss as to what it is. Their dx was, "oh you just have adult onset asthma." WTF? It just didn't made sense to me. I felt it had to be due to one of the conditions I mentioned above.
I have done multiple parasite cleanses and they don't help. Candida diet and supps don't help. My current ND thinks it's being caused by the heavy metal issue I have and that they are probably the cause also for the AF, since metal toxicity will tax the adrenals. She feels if I can chelate the metals, the other issues will improve drastically or even be elimainated. Just wondering if anyone else has these problems and if you've traced them back to AF or heavy metals. Other than what I'm doing, I'm not sure what more to take or try. Currently I'm taking SF722 for the candida, candida diet, shark liver oil for oral chelation (which I plan to rotate to something different soon - any suggestions? Cutler protocol is not an option), a viral supp for the epstein barr, an herbal lyme supp, Vit. D, Vit. C, Zinc and probiotics. Would love to hear from anyone else going through the same thing. Thanks.
I have different symptoms, but am doing similar protocols.
Candida diet, parasite cleansing etc.
My heavy metal toxicity has not been tested, but I see it as a possibility. For now I take high dosage chlorella (10-20gr.)
Besides the fact that it absorbs toxins in the intestines, Chlorella has so many nutrients, You should try it.
Also google Dr. Klinghardt protocol.
He does heavy metal chelation with Cilantro and Chlorella.
Thanks for the info on Dr. Klinghardt. If you have candida and parasites, chances are good you have heavy metal issues. My ND said that most chronic conditions can be traced to heavy metals as their root cause and until you get the metal out, the other stuff may improve some with treatment, but may never go away completely. I will look into Dr. Klinghardt's stuff. Thanks.
I have had a constant mucus problem for well over a year, and I also gave up dairy completely for four months, but it made no difference whatsoever.
I then went down the route of having my mercury Amalgam fillings removed and doing a three-month heavy metal chelation protocol (using a very effective product called Humet-R, as well as chlorella, l-glutathione, and milk thistle). I definitely felt better after this, though the mucus situation was by no means resolved.
I then did an anti-Candida regime (diet plus rotating three different antifungals - caprylic acid, Pau d'Arco and grapefruit seed extract, as well as garlic and MSM in case of parasites, and because MSM also helps to heal the intestinal wall if it has been penetrated by Candida).
I felt quite a bit better after all this lot, but still not totally right. I then started addressing the issue of adrenal fatigue, using vitamin C, Siberian Ginseng, Ashwagandha and Rhodiola. I have been doing this for two or three weeks and have already noticed a difference.
Interestingly, it was only once I started dealing with all of the above that I realised I had had pressure in my head for a long time and was starting to suffer from nausea (which I mistakenly took to be Candida die-off). I was then told by a doctor that I had labyrinthitis (inner ear imbalance) and chronic sinusitis (though, like you, I didn't have a runny nose or sneezing, just a foggy head and what I thought were tension headaches).
I started taking plantago (tincture) to clear the sinuses, but then I stumbled across a recommendation for the use of Vinpocetine for vertigo left over after killing off Candida and removing heavy metals. Well, it's either one huge coincidence or this stuff is fantastic. Within three days the vertigo was gone. I then developed the worst cold of my life - I NEVER GET COLDS! What seems to be happening now is that the whole lot is - gradually - clearing. It's as if I have had every cold that I should have had in the last three or four years but which was suppressed - all at once.
I am noticing less mucus, which is a huge relief, but will post an update if anyone has managed to read this far and is interested!
I had this problem Soooo Severely for over a year. I had crazy Candida.... and was coughing up/ spitting excess phlegm/ mucous near every 10 minutes! It was ruining my life.
I tried every anti-fungal, the candida diet, ... to no avail whatsoever.
A few days of taking FiveLac probiotics and it was significantly better. 2 weeks a cure. (Careful with die-off though)
I also have Severe Adrenal Fatigue... after researching eating more protein (w probiotics and HCL for digestion), having 1/4 of a tsp of Himalayan salt spread throughout the day, and 1 tbs coconut oil a day, and for the first time in years I'm gaining stamina.
All this can be researched online.
(I'd also suggest natural vitamins/ or juicing, maybe vitamin B, and vitamin D if you live up in the north) Hope this helps :)
Asthma? Sounds like there is a good chance you have an Ascaris(roundworm) infection. Around 20% of the world's population is infected with Ascaris. Since you claim parasite cleanses haven't worked, have you tried Mebendazole? Mebendazole is given in 6 doses over 3 days for roundworm infection. Since very little is absorbed and it is virtually nontoxic anyway, there is very little risk in trying it. In the US it is by prescription though, but in many other places it is over the counter.
