Just my two cents here. I've had huge problems with candida for the past 15 years, and yes, you are right, heavy metal detox - mercury and all the others, will help more than any other procedure to get rid of candida.
You may want to be careful with sweets, etc. But otherwise, I think if you are doing detox, you can't stress the body too much with that crazy diet.
In 2000, I was fighting candida really hard with diet, antifungals, immune boosters, etc. I was super strict on the diet, and ate only meat, veg, eggs, for ten months. It was no use.
And it is only when I got my Amalgams
out, then candida vanished like magic.
Now am dealing with lead poisoning and doing IV chelation. Mercury seems easy compare to lead.
