It's best to ask an expert, but I've read in the many articles I've been researching that it's not a good idea to do heavy metal detox without having Amalgam fillings removed first. There is a body of thought that heavy metal detox while you have Amalgam fillings only causes the fillings to leach mercury making things worse. I've been working on my candida issues for two months, and now that the holidays are over, getting my Amalgam fillings removed is on the top of my list of things to do. Then, I want to do heavy metal detox.
I will say this, though, and that is that Candida can really be a cause of depression. I've been on Effexor for Depression for 12 years until I began all of my antifungal treatments (Difulcan and now Nystatin). Since my treatments for Candida, I've had no problem with Depression at all and have gone totally off of Effexor (and without any side effects, which I find amazing!). I have no problem with Depression or anxiety now, although my yeast infection is still very much a problem. I also find that I have so much less fatigue. I used to have to sleep 12 to 15 hours a night and take four hour naps on weekends, and I still was tired. Now, I only need 8 hours of sleep a night. (Gosh! It's 11:00 p.m. where I am and I still am awake! Now that's amazing!)
