Slowsmile thank you so much for your post on Candida. What a tremendous amount of information. I have had Candida for years and have tried several times to get rid of it. I happened on your post last night because I bought borax recently and wanted to see how to use it to rid myself of systemic candida.
After reading your article though I realize that this will be much more difficult than I thought and I am going to try and take your advice of attacking it at all angles. I am scared though, I have had horrible die off at times in which I have vomited, bloating so badly I thought my stomach would explode and horrible headaches.
I need a slow approach can you recommend a slower approach for me?
Also I have issues with taking herbs. I have been treated for Depression for 15 years. I have been on Effexor 6 of those years. When I use herbs it flushes out my liver too quickly and the medication doesn't work and I become extremely anxious and lethargic to the point of not being able to get out of bed.
I want off the Effexor so badly but the last time I tried which was a year and a half ago, the anxiety got so bad that I actually had a heart attack. (I am a 54 year old woman with a horrible family history of heart disease.) I am also about 30 pounds overweight and not so good lipid profile.
I refuse to take statins, I have tried 3 brands and all of them made me so mentally confused that I was literally missing work because I didn't know what day it was.
I really need help because I feel awful. I have one more question. I have had heavy metal blood testing and they returned normal. But you mentioned something in your article about prescription drugs causing us to have heavy metal poisoning. Did I read that correctly?
