Diary of Unknown Symptoms

Mystery of the Internal Vibration

Entry for February 10, 2007

The friend of my wife who is also battling candida was off sick this week from the die off symptoms. He suggested that I try HMF Intensive by Genestra and take two capsules, three times a day. It’s the same brand that the nutritionist mentioned although she suggested HMF Replete.

I tried the local health food store on the main street in Markham and they carry a lot of Genestra products. In their fridge, they had both products so I ask what the difference is and explain that it’s for candida. She explains that HMF Replete and HMF Intensive are basically the same except that one contains FOS (Fructo-Oligosaccharides) and the other doesn’t.

Fructo-oligosaccharides (FOS) are naturally occurring carbohydrates that cannot be digested or absorbed by humans but support the growth of beneficial bacteria.

There is controversy over FOS having a negative effect on Candida. So because of this, I’ll take the HMF Intensive.

Any effect from using the Colloidal Silver? Nope. No difference.

Today I looked up the suggestion from the nutritionist: Liver cleanse.

Why Use a Liver Strengthening Formula?

The health and vitality of every organ, gland, and cell are dependent upon the liver. Even our intelligence, attitudes, emotions and vitality are largely related to the liver. Our ability to repel disease or recover from disease is very much associated with this incredible organ. The liver, along with the heart and brain, are the most important organs in our bodies. However, even the heart and the brain are dependent on the liver. No one can be healthy without a strong, clean liver.

Notice: Live-er. The name itself gives us an idea of how important this organ really is. It is the largest gland in the body, weighing about 4 pounds. According to some doctors, at least 85% of the Western World’s population have sluggish livers. 100% of people with cancer, AIDS, diabetes, heart problems, yeast infections, digestive problems, parasites, etc., probably have liver problems. Every organ, gland and tissue is dependent upon the liver, and the liver depends upon the digestive tract.

How Liver Problems Originate

Physiologically, we develop liver weakness after we have abused our bodies by long-term eating of acid-forming foods, processed foods and other unhealthy foods. These include foods that are unnatural to the human body, like meat, sugar, white flour, white rice, foods cooked in oil, etc. Bad diet gradually weakens our digestive system, and do you know what organ takes the brunt of a bad diet? Yes, the Liver. All the food that is absorbed from our intestines goes directly to the liver, by way of the portal vein. The liver and bowels then must deal with all the harmful chemicals from the bad food. Food colorings, preservatives, heavy metals, fried oils, partially digested proteins, etc., all take their toll upon our precious liver and digestive system. It is for this reason, that cleansing the bowels is absolutely the most important treatment in helping to rejuvenate the liver.

FOODS & THINGS THAT ARE THE WORST FOR THE LIVER:

  • Heavy Metals
  • Cod-liver oil
  • Oils not cold pressed
  • Alcohol Meat and animal fats
  • Lack of exercise
  • Foods cooked in oil Margarine
  • Chemotherapy
  • Coffee
  • Pasteurized milk
  • White sugar
  • All drugs
  • Excessive fatigue
  • Vaccines
  • Tobacco
  • Over cooking
  • Salt-Sodium Chloride
  • Chlorine from water
  • Sodium Fluoride from water
  • Over eating
  • Cooked wheat – especially white bread
  • Constipation alternating with diarrhea
  • Medications and food chemicals
  • Pesticides found in commercially grown produce

Emotions Affect the Liver, Too

More than any other organ, the liver is affected by negative thoughts and feelings. Anger, resentment, fear, and all their emotional tributaries harm the liver more than anything else. With the exception of injury, 99% of all disease has an association with toxic waste settlement in conjunction with unconscious negative thoughts and feelings. This is why when people cleanse or take herbs to cleanse and strengthen the liver, strong emotions surface. These cleansing reactions must occur if we are to rid ourselves of the cause of our problems.

A Toxic Liver Leads to Disease

Every vein from the digestive tract empties into the liver, which filters out toxins and waste. The skin and lungs are the body’s first line of defense against toxins; the bowel is next, then the liver. When the bowel is overburdened with the wrong foods and/or negative emotions that cause physical stress and toxicity, the liver must work overtime to save the life of the body.

If the liver is unable to perform its full function, it will not only become even more toxic, but all the other organs are challenged. Prior to the first sign of disease, the effectiveness of the liver has been reduced. First come negative thoughts and feelings that affect hormonal and nerve function, then toxins related to mental/emotional stress or poor diet. These cause congestion and contamination, which prevent the proper flow of oxygen and nutrients to cells, and make the cells unable to rid themselves of waste. This cycle exacerbates an already weakened digestive system, toxic bowel and sluggish liver. In terms of physiology, this is the core of disease.

I discovered today that Dr. Carolyn Dean is a consultant on a web site called “The Yeast Connection”. So she’s an expert on magnesium and candida.

Dr. Carolyn Dean is both a medical doctor and a naturopathic doctor. In her role as medical advisor to YeastConnection.com and as a complimentary service to our readers, Dr. Dean regularly answers questions that are emailed through our “contact us” link. She also offers private fee-for-service telephone consultations.

MEN AND THE YEAST CONNECTION

How men react to yeast overgrowth is very different from women. I have had many male patients and clients over the years that express their yeast overgrowth with symptoms of anxiety. One recent client, in his forties complained of paralyzing anxiety, sugar addiction, and weight gain. After one particularly severe anxiety attack he was put on an antianxiety medication but it didn’t seem to help.

When he came to me for help he told me he was eating several chocolate bars a day to keep his energy up and had begun hiding them from his wife. He was also the son of a medical doctor and had many courses of antibiotics in his life for chronic sinus infections. I immediately thought of yeast overgrowth because sugar is it’s main food. But surprisingly, he didn’t have the usual gas, bloating, and intestinal distress from yeast fermenting with sugar in the intestines.

I explained that yeast in his body had probably overgrow because of all the antibiotics and sugar and was producing toxic yeast byproducts like alcohol and acetaldehyde. Of the 180 yeast toxins these are the most likely to create anxiety. I also told him about the proven connection of yeast and weight and the addiction to sugar and carbs caused by ravenous yeast in his body. Fortunately he was able to see the whole picture and was able to start on a high dose of chromium picolinate (500 micrograms twice a day) for his sugar cravings and tackle the yeast-free diet. He is now well on the way to getting back the life he was meant to live.

If you have men in your life that are eating too much sugar and have mood changes and weight gain, make sure they know the importance of the yeast connection to their health.

Entry for February 08, 2007

Tonight I met with the nutritionist. I had eleven pages of my lengthy health history in my hand as well as my diet diary from the past week. We sit down in her small office and begin.

I tell her that she has the best advantage of any doctor so far. For the first time, I have a summary of what every doctor has said and a detailed history of my symptoms, opinions, successes and failures. I hand her the diet diary and my health history. She briefly reviews my paperwork and she starts by asking me about my history and what each doctor had said.

Over the next two hours I explain everything in more detail going through my health history. She asks me questions along the way and explain further if I need to. This time, I didn’t leave anything out.

I talked about the internal vibration, blood tests, urine tests, Plantar Fasciitis, eating fruit, pinching on my face, stress, nerve tingling, suspected tapeworms, my wife’s pregnancy, suspected thyroid, experimentation with vitamins, the Colonoscopy and Gastrocopy, naturopath, vitamin C and Acidophilus, Hair Analysis Test, Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity, high blood pressure, Wendy Mesley, Hydro transmission towers, Acupuncture, Triglycerides, Niacin deficiency, alkaline stomach, microwaved food, Chiropractor, Wheatgrass, hormone test, iridology, myelin sheaths, magnesium, Osteopath, Romania, riboflavin injections, Neurologist, Anxiety, Paxil, Yeast Buster Kits, garlic, low potassium, stressed adrenals, and candida.

I explained about the hair analysis and how the naturopath said I didn’t show a magnesium deficiency in the results and I explained about how there is only one test that is considered accurate. The Blood Ionized Magnesium Test and I further explained that I never pursued it because you need to stop taking it for the results to be accurate. I didn’t see any point because it’s only going to tell me I have a deficiency and I know that already.

I made sure she understood the importance of taking it and how if I miss one does, I can notice a difference. She commented that the same thing applies for the vitamin/mineral testing. It requires no supplements for about three weeks for accuracy and there is no way I could do that. I could probably go without everything else except my magnesium.

Half way through, she explained that she was part of a discussion group and asked if I minded if she discussed by unusual case with other health professionals. She was quite interested and very serious about everything I mentioned. She suggested that I could have an electrolyte imbalance. After I finished, she said that what I had compiled was a fantastic wealth of information and that I had done a lot of research. She said I was very aware and knowledgeable about what was going on and asked me what I expected from her.

WOW! I was totally blown away. For the first time, instead of having someone lead me into a direction I didn’t want to go, I am being asked what I want. Very impressive.

So I said my long term supplementation with magnesium isn’t getting any better so there has to be a problem with a mineral co-factor and I suspect it could have a link with high sugar intake. I further explained about how stressed adrenals can cause a loss of potassium. She suggested doing a liver cleanse to support the adrenals and focus on body organs to support the rest of the body. This sounded great and not sure why this was never mentioned before.

She also mentioned Genestra again as being the “Rolls Royce” of vitamins and that you can only find it in health stores where they have an association with a naturopathic doctor or a type of certification.

She didn’t ask for any payment and didn’t make any suggestions regarding supplements. She finished the meeting by saying she didn’t want to suggest anything before talking to her discussion group and I was totally fine with that.

Still vibrating…

Entry for February 07, 2007

I’m meeting with the nutritionist tomorrow and I’ve decided to try one more thing before I meet with her. I was in the health food store and I came across colloidal silver in a spray format. I’d heard about it before and it wasn’t expensive so I’ll try it.

A friend of mine recommended colloidal silver last year before I was into these alternative “cures” and he had results in three days for a really bad cold. He swears by it.

Colloidal Silver

The intestines form perfect breeding grounds for candida. If the condition becomes bad enough, eventually the candida irritate an area of the intestine so much that their toxins penetrate the intestinal wall into the blood stream, where they can break down the immune system. Soon the candida infection itself passes through the intestinal wall and the white blood cells are consumed in their struggle to control the infection, further destroying the immune system.

Thus, candida is a common contributor to many diseases and conditions, such as AIDS, cancer, chronic fatigue syndrome, colds, flus, etc.. Almost all disease and health problems are greatly aggravated by candida.

Candida can sometimes be controlled by increasing the acidity of the body, especially the area the yeast is growing in. This can be done by eating acid foods, such as vinaigrette salad dressings, and by applying vinegar mixed with water to the problem area.

The best antibiotic commonly used to treat this condition is Nystatin. But Nystatin is only marginally effective against yeast, and remember that the problems probably started with the use of antibiotics to begin with.

Normally the body can handle minor yeast infections. However, when the yeast reaches the infectious stage wherein it is poisoning the blood and the immune system grows weak, such infections as athlete’s foot, vaginal yeast infections, and fungus infections under the nails cannot be fought off.

A common treatment for the general infection is a diet completely free of all sugars, even fruit and starches along with taking Nystatin. However, anyone who has tried this treatment will tell you that this very strict diet is almost impossible to follow and does little more than keep the infection from proliferating.

The most effective tools against yeast infections of all kinds are acidophilus (yogurt), colloidal silver, and upper colonics. Combined, they can rid the body of yeast infections about as fast as the body can dispose of the toxins from dead cultures. However, disposing of these toxins can be a real problem, for two reasons. First of all, if the intestinal infection is killed off too sudden, it is possible for the intestines to become blocked. Obviously this can be serious and sometimes requires professional treatment to clear the bowels. Second, the body tends to dispose of toxins from the blood through the skin, which causes an itchy rash when the process is too fast. Toxins from dead spores can also strain the liver and kidneys.

Therefore, it is wise to take as much acidophilus as is convenient, but to build up the use of colloidal silver gradually, usually starting with four oz. of colloidal silver a day, of about ten parts per million, or the equivalent. This is usually increased by about one oz. per day until a breaking out appears or the conditions are relieved.

The colloidal silver provides a three-fold attack on the problems of candida. First, the colloidal silver kills off anaerobic bacteria and virii wherever it comes in contact with them. Therefore, the colloidal silver virtually provides a secondary immune system against all types of disease and infections, while treating the candida. Thus much of the problems of candida are treated immediately, before the candida can be cleaned out of the system. Second, colloidal silver is unusually effective in treating the candida infection itself. And third, colloidal silver has a strange and dynamic way of healing injured and damaged tissues fast. Since yeast infections of all kinds usually attack and consume the living tissue, a healing process is badly needed, and colloidal silver has a very unique way of healing these tissues fast.
