Long story short, I found a friend of mine from years ago, who used to live near where we are now. He moved to Colorado but travels to California 10 days a month because he has so many patients out here. He is a naturopath and has a very unique process he does to find your problems. Well he did confirm the Candida, Parasites and Heavy Metal toxicity, but also found Hashimoto's, slight radiation poisoning and crappy adrenals.
Ok, so I started on his protocol and instantly noticed changes. The first week, I lost like 8 pounds, where I couldn't lose weight before, the boils in my armpit disappeared that I had for months, and I wasn't as tired as usual. Now on week three, I am pooping like 6 times a day, and either old fecal matter is being expelled, or the bugger inside me is coming out in pieces. Sorry if this is TMI, but there are like black chunks in my stool. I have tolerated all the supplements fine, except for the usual and customary die-off.
Now he has added MSM (a very pure form) which he has me taking with Vitamin C (he says you should take 50 mg. of C for every 1000 mg. of MSM you take). I am taking only one MSM a day (1000 mg.). At the same time, I was at the health food store and wanted to switch probiotics, as I felt I wasn't getting a lot of help from the liquid acidopholous I was taking, especially for my re-occurent yeast infections. The woman at the store said the one I was taking hardly did anything at all, and she recommended this other one that has two different strains of friendly bacteria (neither one acidopholous), and that should help colonized the vagina better with the kind of bacteria that is needed there. Ok, so I try the new probiotic at the same time as the MSM and so far, it's been a mixed bag. While I definitely feel more mellow and I guess relaxed to an extent (sleeping better) since taking the MSM, but I am also having feelings of anxiety and jitteryness. From what I read, MSM should have a calming effect. That is why I wonder if it could be the probiotic. I know you can have heavy die-off from probiotics and wonder if that was it. I take both at night and by late morning the next day, most of the anxiety is gone. Any thoughts? I really don't want to have to stop taking the MSM as it is essential in my treatment plan. A probiotic can easily be changed. However on anothe site I read two posters who said they also had anxiety after taking the MSM. My doc wants me taking one starting out and work my way up to two eventually. That's why I wonder if it can cause anxiety. Perhaps my body just has to get used to it? Any feedback would be great. Thanks.
There are 3 suppliments that some people take for anxiety, these are L-Tyrosine, Gaba and L-Phenylalanine. The L-Phenylalanine having an almost immediate effect within a few minutes as far as calming the anxiety attacts.
MSM is more effective for skin and joint pains.
As for radiation poison, seaweed and kelp will solve that because it is rich in iodine. Iodine is used for every nuclear radiation disaster.
The Cilantro herb is the most effective metal detox (especially mercury), try making a cilantro paeto for salads :) yummy!
For Candida, Take 3 to 5 drops of lavender oil mixed with a half or one teaspoonful of honey three times a day.
A little about lavender oil besides being a good digestion aid.
Lavender oil is effective against 28 oropharyngeal (thrush) strains and 22 vaginal strains of Candida albicans,
It has both fungistatic and fungicidal activity against C. albicans strains and reduces fungal progression and the spread of infection in host tissues.
I suggest taking 12 drops of Oregon Grape Root Tincture 3 times a day for the acne.
Also for the acne, mix 1 part flowers of sulfur powder to 9 parts of aloe gel and apply to effected areas.
You need to mix in a blender or with a mixer to make an even consistency.
Flowers of Sulfur powder is also called precipitated sulfur, milk of sulfur or sublimed sulfur.
These are different names for pure elemental sulfur, natural and non-toxic. It is a relatively fine crystalline powder, light lime colour, with a faint pleasant lemon fragrance (will not stink).

–noun Pharmacology .
sublimed sulfur in the form of a fine yellow powder, used in medicine chiefly to kill parasites and fungi and to treat certain skin diseases.
When MSM is taken for the first times it is common to get a jittery feeling. You should have started with a smaller dose. Toxins are being released from the body. After the toxins have been released, you can take quite a bit of it at one time and not feel anything. I have taken as much as 6000 mg at once. It is non toxic.
