Okay, I have candida overgrowth and mercury toxicity, though my symptoms have been reduced significantly and are on the low end of things. Now I just want to get rid of my gut and reduce my hunger. I tried iodine. But anyway, moving on...
I started taking deer antler velvet (2mg) about 6 days ago, and... wow. Major candida die off, despite the fact that even taking bacillus coagulans no longer produces major die off for me. But also, I'm experiencing symptoms that make me think it's moving mercury around.
I have the metallic taste in my mouth, mild itchiness, candida die off (which is many symptoms), random stuff like randomly feeling that my knees are heavy, then suddenly they're not. Miscellaneous stuff that's similar to when I was taking a product that shifts mercury around.
I'm taking chelating stuff also (vitamin C, selenium, etc).
Anyway, what is IN deer antler velvet that could be doing this? I find so very little information on it that it's not even funny. I started taking it to try to lose weight, and instead my body's going insane like it does whenever I do something with mercury. Does anyone know much about this? And what on earth are the ingredients in deer antler velvet? I can't find any site that lists them.
Okay, so any of that stuff help with chelation? "All 8 essential amino acids" sounds like it might include Lysine. Also in there is sulphur. Both of those are known to help with chelation, but not necessarily cause the body to excrete more mercury. Plus there's seleinum and magnesium, and glucasomine is also said to help.
What else could be in deer antler velvet? My body is definitely showing signs of moving mercury around, believe me, as I know my mercury symptoms. But is anything in there able to actually pull mercury from the cells so it can be chelated? How much do you think this might be helping with mercury?
I realize I'm treading in unknown territory here. Might as well keep it up and see what happens.
Buy Three Lac and take 4 straws daily for the first 6 weeks then, 2 daily. Stay away from all the trigger foods. You will do through severe die off symptoms the first week and then you should be cured of all symptoms. Deer velvet is wonderful in general. Helps to increase growth hormone naturally in your body. I know what I say because 20 years ago I suffered for over 21 years with chronic yeast problems due to antibiotics. I cured myself with Three Lac after trying everything you could ever think of. I am just someone like you who needs help and find doctors are idiots. Been there and know. I stumbled upon this by accident. I hope I can help you. Natalie
