>>>One strange observation I have to make, is that Bentonite
clay would actually give bad candida die-off symptoms. Why do you think this is if I may ask? <<<
True candida die off symptoms are caused by one main thing - and that's alcohol withdrawal. No/less candida to convert carbs/sugar to alcohol, no/less alcohol in the bloodstream = alcohol withdrawal. Google the symptoms of alcohol withdrawal and candida die-off and then compare them - almost exactly the same.
Of course, as the dead candida degrade/digest, they also give off some toxins...but that's nothing compared to the alcohol withdrawal.
SO, if Bentonite
adsorbs alcohol then it could increase the "die off" symptoms. BUT I've *never* heard of that - in fact, I've seen Bentonite
recommended to LESSEN symptoms.
Our "strange observations" can be very deceiving, as our bodies and our diet are not 'sterile laboratories' where any/all variables are adequately & consistently obvserves. Taking bentonite is but one variable of LOTS of variable...the state of our organs/bloodstream each day-hour/minute; our exposure to EMFs (just being near an unidentified tower for a few minutes can cause people to experience all manner of reactions for days; being within yards of someone using a phone affects us biologically for hours; holding a Cell Phone
to our head for a few minutes blows the blood-brain barrier for 20-30 minutes); the amount of water/fluids ingested; the foods, juices, herbs ingested (and whether or not they have an effect on candida) - the list is endless. And on top of that there's the variables of how all those things affect each other - with and without the bentonite in play.
So we ALL need to be cautious with our assumptions when we add one thing and experience something different than what 'most others' experience. It may (or may not) be that "one thing"...or it could be that 'one thing' in a combination with various other things.
'Not saying what you experienced wasn't real - 'just saying that self-diagnosis and not considering ALL the variables is always a very slippery slope...and our health & healing depends upon us knowing, accepting and doing our best to deal with it :)
