I know this is an old post, but I wanted to reach out because I have this exact problem. I have tried both mag citrate and mag chloride (in the liquid added to my drinking water). Both cause terrible swelling in my feet and lower legs.
It took me a while to determine what was causing the edema so I continued with the magnesium and then I developed proteinuria (kidney related) which totally went away when I stopped taking the magnesium.
I am a thin athlete who eats very well so this edema symptom is strange for me.
I was wondering if you have the same problem with supplements that contain magnesium stearate. It is so hard to find supplements without it.
Also, taurine is excellent for those night time leg cramps. It works for me whenever I wake up with them, I just take 500 mg taurine and fall back to sleep with no further problems.
Please let me know if you have the problem with stearate. I really want to know.
I did not have any of those oils you suggested and the lung supplement is not available on iherb and so I mixed black seed oil with the ionic silver I had and placed that in my nebulizer and saw immediate relief. I hope this will help. Thanks again.
“This system operates on fear, you have no fear and that’s a problem for us.” − District court official to Ben Taylor in private chambers
After years of silence, the story can finally be told…
In February 2012, a small supplement company and its owner scored a huge victory for health freedom. This happened when all charges against the Utopia Silver Supplement Company and its owner Ben Taylor were withdrawn (i.e. non-suited) by the prosecution after almost 11 years of a protracted struggle instigated by the FDA. Though not as widely publicized as cases such as the Dr. Burzynski trial, the implications may be even larger. Read More
I started taking Pau D Arco a few days ago and it seems to relieve the symptoms of Candida. I've seen improvement in just 2 days. But what I'm concerned about is will it kill off good bacteria as well?
Hey, you wrote your msg some years ago and unsure if you ll reply now but I am experiencing very similar reactions. I can't eat some foods, can't tolerate any Supplemenrs and even some creams without feeling my adrenals are being rammed up. Did you ever find a solution? I started reacting like this after taking a supplement to support my adrenals. Be great to hear from you
I've been riding the roller coaster of Candida protocol for about 5 years now, and wanted to offer some advice and get your thoughts on the best way to go about it. One thing I've noticed over the years as I've experimented with countless supplements, pills, herbs, potions, etc. is that NONE OF THEM WORK!
Well, at least not in the long-term, and maybe not much at all. Here are some of the things I've tried and, while some of them gave me temporary relief at times, they failed me:
The list goes on - if there is a thread about it on here or elsewhere, chances are I've tried it - even a home enema.
WHAT I HAVE LEARNED over time by documenting and experimenting is that the only time my symptoms truly regress is when I am doing the Candida diet for 2+ weeks. Once I introduce any kind of supplement or "medicine," the symptoms will return. And it's not just die-off, as I've learned to see the difference, and once I remove the offending supplement my body starts to heal again. So, I want to hear from you all:
Have you tried the diet without any outside supplements?
Are all these "cures" just a clever marketing scheme from the supplement industry?
Could it be that diet/lifestyle alone really ARE enough to beat, or at least quell, Candida?
I'd love to hear your stories and what protocol has worked best for you. My advice: Start with the diet only, for at least a few weeks, and see how you feel before adding any supplements - and note how those affect you. Thanks all!
I also was cured from fecal bad breath. I suffered for almost ten years from this dammed disease. The cause of my fecal breath was H. Pylori but i also suffered from Atrophic Rhinitis. Atrophic Rhinitis makes you smell like rotting flesh.
I did two antibiotic sessions, one for H. Pylori and one for Atrophic Rhinitis...
I did a blog with all the information i could gather throughout all these years. Check it out and cure yourself. Hugs.
I had the exact same experience with D. Earth. I had to leave work because of nausea and vomitting. I quit taking it immediately. I wish I could have all the great rests that others experience. I will look for an option that doesn't cause illness.
Branched Chain Amino Acids
I find a Branched Chain Amino Acids supplement helps me a lot with strength and stamina also with sleep.
But the recent supplement I have been using gives me kidney pain so I discontinued using it.
My questions are as follows
Why the kidney pain?
Can anyone recommend a quality supplement of branched chain amino acids?
Would a general overall amino acid supplement be good idea? (not just branched chain)
