Diary of Unknown Symptoms

Mystery of the Internal Vibration

Entry for September 12, 2007

Tonight I made a huge mistake…again. Because the garlic was working so well, I took three capsules instead of the recommened dosage of two. By late afternoon I start feeling the upset stomach so I take some acidophilus but it had no effect.

I try to go to bed early and get some sleep but I end up waking around midnight and I was feeling really hot and nauseous. Then, I get the feeling that I’m going to puke and within minutes, I ran to the bathroom and puked. I also had some diarrhea at the same time so it was not fun.

Sometimes I’m very impatient looking for results. But tonight it wasn’t worth it. I’ll take it slow from now on…

WOW! The garlic works this time. You are supposed to change up the anti-fungals ever few weeks so this is fantastic. Another thing that seems to work better this time? Taking acidophilus after the antifungals. I’ve always read that you should replace your intestinal flora as you kill off the candida. I never noticed any difference…until today.

These all have to be clues that my minerals are somewhat balanced…but the candida still exists.

No vibration!

I found some garlic supplements that I stopped using the first time around because they didn’t seem to have an effect on the candida. I’ll try adding that to see if it works this time.

Came across an interesting article the other day called “Dietary Supplements That Don’t Work”. I can certainly agree with the comments for magnesium oxide and garlic supplements.

Dietary Supplements That Don’t Work

1. Magnesium oxide – This widely sold, economical form of magnesium is preferred by dietary supplement manufacturers because it is 70% elemental magnesium and only 30% carrier (oxide). But only 4% of magnesium oxide is absorbed.

2. Calcium supplements – Calcium is an essential, but over-promoted, mineral.

3. High-lignan flaxseed oil – So now, if you are convinced calcium supplements are not the sole answer to the problem of age-related bone loss, then what about plant estrogens?

4. Vitamin C – What, vitamin C pills don’t work? Calm down, that false notion was contrived from flawed science conducted by National Institutes of Health researchers who refuse to recant.

5. Garlic supplements – You may have your favorite garlic pill. Larry King, CNN TV commentator, has his. But the problem with garlic pills is that most of the studies involving garlic and its health benefits involve its primary active ingredient, allicin, which most of the garlic pills provide little or none.

6. Ginseng – the list of health benefits associated with this herb are growing, and include blood sugar control, blood pressure normalization and even help for male impotency. But ginseng often fails to meet its promise because dietary supplements often fail to provide ginseng’s primary active ingredient, called ginsenosides.

7. Resveratrol – undoubtedly this herbal extract from grapes or other botanical sources will continue to be widely acclaimed. Its potential health benefits are endless.

8. Red yeast rice – so you’re searching for a more natural alternative to statin drugs to lower your cholesterol. You don’t want to experience the liver-toxic effects of statin molecules. So you begin your search at the local health food store.

Dietary supplements have great promise, serve as economical and safe alternatives to problematic prescription drugs, but often disappoint because they are not properly made or labeled.

Today I wanted to try going back to the garlic. I don’t really have the time to take it when I’m home on the weekends. So it’s back to work, and back to taking garlic. I wanted to try a higher dosage and I manage to eat three cloves of garlic before noon.

I checked in the mirror and I have thrush. It’s been better than this so how did it get worse? I had a cucumber for breakfast, plain yogurt and garlic so how did I get thrush?

I mentioned my morning experiment with my wife and she checked with her friend who also has candida. He said that taking garlic will kill the good bacteria as well as the bad and was the reason I have thrush. I can’t imagine garlic being that bad so I decide to do some research:

Supporting probiotics with diet

It’s important to support probiotic use and your existing friendly flora through optimal nutrition, especially by minimizing refined sugar and processed foods in your diet. For more information refer to our nutritional and lifestyle guidelines.

Good bacteria feast on fiber. The bad guys love refined sugar and animal fat. Given a ready supply of vegetables, legumes and whole grains, good bacteria live long and prosper. Polyphenols, found in foods like garlic, green tea and ginseng, are also helpful in fostering friendly flora.

Fermented foods such as miso, tempeh, soy sauce and yogurt are renowned for their health-boosting qualities. They introduce active probiotic cultures that help wedge out unfriendly bacteria by competing directly with two main food poisoners: the toxic strains of E. coli and Staphylococcus aureus. Many longevity experts have extolled the health benefits of eating fermented foods — now you know why!

A few nutrients called prebiotics have been isolated that set the stage for probiotic survival. These include fructooligosaccharides (FOS), and inulin, which are natural sugars found in bananas, chicory root, onions, leeks, fruit, soybeans, sweet potatoes, asparagus and some whole grains. Prebiotics help probiotics survive passage through the acidity of the stomach and foster their growth in the intestines and colon.

A night of trying to find any reference to the fact that garlic is bad for your intestinal flora and I’ve found nothing. The above article states that garlic is good for your flora so I don’t know what to think. I ate three cloves of garlic and I ate them with plain yogurt. Then I come across another reference:

Some manufacturers have enteric-coated their garlic powder so that it would bypass the stomach. Assuming the best, that a high quality garlic powder is used initially (one that is not exposed to high temperatures which can deactivate alliinase), this form of garlic could potentially deliver alliin and alliinase to the intestinal tract. However, simulated intestinal fluids have been shown to inhibit 40% of the allicin production. The remaining allicin may exert anti-microbial effects on bad bacteria, however, it may also destroy friendly bacteria.

So does this explain the thrush? Possibly, but I’m also using the Colloidal Silver. Can that have an effect on the friendly bacteria? Yup…

Top grade Colloidal Silver contains 99.999% pure colloidal silver particles 0.0001 microns in diameter with a concentration of 20 parts per million that have little effect on the friendly bacteria in our digestive tract. However, be aware of products with higher concentrations as they can attack friendly bacteria just like some antibiotics. This could upset your natural balance and lead to other complications. With colloidal silver, higher concentrations are not necessarily better. As a matter of fact, the opposite is usually true.

The spray that I have is only 5 to 6 ppm but I’ll see if there is any change tomorrow without the garlic and if not, I’ll stop taking it altogether.

Okay…Candida Diet: DAY ONE (Second attempt)

I start the day with my vitamins and a few drops of oregano oil.

Driving into work, it snowed over night so the traffic was a nightmare. We were running late and I missed my train. When that happens, my wife drops me close to the subway near her work. As I was driving I felt a weird chest pain but this time it was different than any other time.

I felt a pulsing pinching pain on the left side of my chest. Usually when I get a similar pain, it happens once then goes away. This time, I could feel multiple pinches and five seconds apart. Because I had never felt this weird sensation before, I quickly grabbed a dose of my homeopathic magnesium and the timing between the pinching moved slowly apart until it disappeared altogether.

It never happened again for the rest of the day. Forget the oregano oil, I’m switching back to the garlic. Starting today.

Clearly there are supplements that are not safe. That was scary!

Day Two: Candida Diet

I found some veggie chips this weekend at the supermarket and amazingly, it contained no sugar and potato flour is the basic ingredient. I had some as a morning snack and I was eating my cloves of garlic. I had a cucumber for lunch and some organic oats with flax seed for my afternoon snack.

My nose still feels stuffy and I’m guessing it was the oatmeal or was it the chips? This diet is impossible.

I mention this to my wife and she spoke with a friend of hers who had candida. He said if the garlic was too much, then I should try two teaspoons of coconut oil per day. Okay this sounds better than eating garlic but will it work?

Coconut Oil

The medium-chain saturated fatty acids in coconut oil are potent antimicrobial agents, effective against fungi, viruses and many bacteria. The most effective fatty acids are caprylic acid (with 8 carbon atoms), capric acid (10 carbon atoms) and lauric acid (12 carbon). They appear to work by causing microbial cell walls to disintegrate.

Coconut oil appears to be effective within days. With Candida take initially 4 tablespoons of coconut oil spread out during the day, and after improvement you may reduce this to 2 tablespoons for several more weeks. This seems to be effective against systemic as well as localised infestations, including those of the genitals. However, it is advisable to apply coconut oil topically as well.

Garlic

Garlic is one of the most potent antimicrobial agents. It was used by Albert Schweitzer to treat amebic dysentery and by Louis Pasteur as an antibacterial. It has been shown to be effective against all but two of 26 strains of candida albicans. The March 1985 issue of Scientific American reported that garlic was effective against 200 varieties of pathogenic fungi. Garlic is one of the richest sources of the element germanium, a potent inducer of interferon and effective against certain cancers by modulating the immune response.

Copper and Zinc

Copper and zinc work together. Imbalanced copper levels directly tie to Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) and candida. Copper serves as a natural antifungal. People with candida, parasites or Epstein-Barr virus commonly have an excess of copper and mercury in their body.

Coconut oil is effective within days??? Where can I get some? It’s 9:30 pm and Loblaws is my only chance at getting some tonight. I jump in the car and head down to Loblaws and I arrive with 10 minutes to spare. Found the coconut oil in the organic foods section and I make the purchase.

I take one tablespoon when I get home and it’s a combination of a wax / butter taste. It’s very bland but much better than garlic.

Today is the start of the “official” candida diet. No sugar, no carbs and I’m switching back to eating garlic cloves several times a day. I stopped eating candy and chocolate bars a while back and reduced my sugar intake. My New Year’s resolution is to stop eating sugar altogether but I was still eating yogurt and breakfast cereal. I switched back to eating garlic and there was no difference.

What really needs to happen for a candida diet to work, it absolutely no sugar whatsoever and sugar of course, is in everything!

I had one apple* and scrambled eggs for breakfast, I’ve been munching on carrots all morning and a garlic clove every few hours and finally by the early afternoon, I’m starting to notice a difference.

(*I keep reading that fruit should be avoided with the candida diet and other sites say it’s okay in moderation.)

Now it’s war! Smell or no smell from here on in, I’m sleeping on the couch. This is working…

I switched back to eating garlic cloves. The garlic supplements don’t work for candida and I think that’s because they all say that it for lowering cholesterol and that’s not what I want it for. I guess it takes the chemical reaction to kill the candida.

Contacted the magnesium research group today and asked them abouth the factors that effect magnesium absorption. Here was the response:

“There are many causes. Too hot, too cold, illnesses, medications, stress levels, foods, and yes polution, noise, exercise that is over 30 min and taxing on the body, sweat,sweets, loss of potassium, low functioning adrenal glands,excessive estrogen, diet low in protien,high in sodium and fats,diuretic use, and diuretic foods=tea coffee, stimulants, hormonal changes, shifting of the mag homeostastis, or potassium homeostatsis.

The adrenal glands makes aldostrone and reenen. This process wastes potassium and magnesium follows potassium out of the body. The two follow each other in most people.”

So maybe that is my problem. I’ve been looking at other vitamins and minerals when in reality, it could be my low functioning adrenals and according to iridology, it is still a factor despite my supplements. I’ve taken potassium in the past but maybe it wasn’t enough. I received some other emails and some suggested my symptoms sounded like hypothyroidism! I do understand that my thyroid is being affected because of my basal temperature readings. I haven’t checked it in a while but I should think about that again. Also have to see if there is a link between potassium and the thyroid.

Time to contact the nutritionist. Finally got around to completing the forms and questionaires. I sent her 12 pages in total.

I tried another health food store today and went looking for his advice on the different types of garlic. He suggested a supplement called Garlinase but he didn’t have any in stock. I look it up when I get home. It’s supposed to have the highest amount of allicin.

Garlinase 4000 is the only true one-per-day garlic supplement because it’s the only one that equals the German Kommission E daily recommendation of 4,000 mg of fresh garlic with just one tablet. The Kommission E is recognized throughout the world as the model for regulating herbal products. The patented Swiss process used to formulate Garlinase 4000¨ delivers a minimum of 5,000 mcg of beneficial allicin per tablet (the highest potency worldwide). This unique Swiss process also ensures completely odor-free breath. Each box of Garlinase 4000¨ contains a Certificate of Analysis from an independent laboratory documenting the amounts of key compounds found in that batch of tablets.

Found Garlinase in Loblaws but it was $45.00 for 100 capsules!! Expensive, but worth it…if it works. The package said it was to lower cholesterol and mentioned nothing about candida so I’m not taking a chance.

While in the health food store I pick up some garlic made by SISU with 2.5 mg of allicin per capsule:

Each caplet contains: Garlic 3:1 extract 250 mg, standardized to contain 2,500 mcg allicin and 5,500 mcg alliin in an enteric coated caplet. No after-odour.

So I’ll need 2 capsules, four times a day to equal eating the cloves. Can you get too much garlic?

SIDE EFFECTS/CONTRAINDICATIONS:

Garlic is extremely safe but taking very large daily doses (more than 10g) of some products may cause flatulence, stomach irritation, or indigestion. Because of garlic’s anti-clotting properties, persons taking anticoagulant drugs, such as Warfarin and Ticlopidine, should check with their doctor before taking garlic. In addition, people scheduled for surgery should inform their surgeon if they are taking garlic supplements Women should avoid taking garlic supplements during pregnancy as laboratory studies suggest that they may cause irregular uterine contractions.

I also pick up some grapefruit seed extract and a candida complex formula. I’m going to throw everything at this candida. I’ve been to this health food store previously and one of the things I noticed is they have a highly recommended magnesium product called Nature Calm so I pick up some of that too because this is the only store where I’ve seen it.

While I’m at the check out, I ask the salesperson if they have a supplement called Phosphorus and she leads me to something called Ps-100 and I take that as well.

Okay candida…you’re finished.

I’ve been eating so much garlic lately that although it is working really well, there is one side effect: The smell. So I’ll try to track down the best garlic supplement.

I wanted to go to a bigger health food store rather than my usual ones so I make the trip after work to see what I can find. I did a little bit of research during the day and here’s what I found:

Garlic

Garlic has been used for thousands of years for its immune enhancing properties. Modern use of garlic also focuses on its ability to lower cholesterol and blood pressure. Fresh garlic contains 0.1 to 0.36% of a volatile oil composed of the sulfur-containing compounds: alliin, allicin and others. Allicin is the primary compound responsible for the pungent odor of garlic, as well as its pharmacology. Allicin is inactivated by heat, which explains why cooked garlic produces neither as strong an odor as the raw, nor nearly as powerful physiological effects.

Numerous double-blind placebo-controlled studies have been done with standardized commercial preparations that provided a daily dose of at least 10 mg alliin, or a total allicin potential of 4,000 mcg. This is equivalent to 4,000 mg of fresh garlic – roughly one to four cloves. This is the dosage recommended by the German Commission E which establishes dosage requirements to allow for therapeutic claims in Germany. Results show a reduction of 11 mg Hg for systolic and 5.0 mm Hg for diastolic can usually be achieved within a one- to three- month period. Results are significantly better when fresh garlic is used compared to aged garlic.

Daily Nutritional Supplement Consideration:
Standardized commercial preparations that provide a daily dose of at least 10 mg alliin, or a total allicin potential of 4,000 mcg, or 1-4 cloves of fresh garlic a day. In the USA, a standard 500 mg garlic pill of 8,000 ppm allicin potential yields 4,000 mcg of allicin, while a 500 mg garlic pill of 12,000 ppm allicin potential yields 6,000 mcg of allicin.

THERAPEUTIC DAILY AMOUNT:

Garlic is available fresh or juiced, as well as in tablets, capsules, and tinctures. Odor-controlled powders, concentrates, and capsules are popular forms, as are enteric-coated tablets (which have a coating that prevents the destruction of active compounds by stomach acids). Supplement manufacturers are increasingly standardizing their products for desirable garlic compounds (principally one called allicin, but also total sulfur, allin, and S-allyl cysteine), but debate rages on as to which of these compounds are most important and which ormulations are most effective. The potency of garlic products may be described in terms of fresh or whole garlic equivalent; an average dose is 1,500 to 1,800mg of fresh garlic equivalent, approximately equal to eating one-half clove of fresh garlic. To fight infection, 3 or 4 chopped, crushed or chewed cloves should be consumed per day or, in supplement form (1.3% allicin), 600-900 mg divided into 2-3 doses/day.

Woke this morning and I’m starting to notice the effects of the garlic. My nose dosen’t seem to a stuffed up as it usually is and for years I thought it was my allergies. The chapped lips appear to be better as well. Were my deficiencies created by a chronic yeast infection?

Maybe once I get a handle on the candida, I can get better absorption from the magnesium supplements. All day I feel better overall and it feels like I have a bit more energy.

Garlic and yogurt? You would think that a naturopath would’ve mentioned an easy natural way to approach candida…and it was never mentioned.

Day Two of the Garlic/Yogurt combination.

I can feel my tongue with that itchy thrush kind of feeling. I’ve stopped the “yeast killing” supplements and switched to this internet remedy. I’ve cut down on my sugar intake but this time I’m trying to be as strict as possible. The sweets of Christmas may have really messed me up. Sometimes I really feel like it’s an addiction. I check in the mirror and my tongue is covered in yeast.

I’ve stopped eating junk food sugar completely for over a week now so why is it getting worse? I remember checking my tongue all of the time when I was getting acupuncture and it was never like this and she never made any comments about thrush.

Monday. The first day to try something new. The internet remedy is in full swing. Garlic cloves and yogurt four times a day. I’ve also changed my vitamins to increase the niacin intake. I’m taking about 400-500 of pure niacin and about the same using niacinamide. I’ve added Lecithin and Taurine along with my multivitamin, enzymes and of course…magnesium.

I’m going to try adding a 300 mg dosage of Calcium/Magnesium in a 1/1 ratio three times a day along with 250 mg of my regular magnesium to see what happens.

I’ve been doing some research on candida lately and I came across a web site that suggests taking garlic throughout the day with yogurt that contains bacterial culture. So we went shopping today and I picked some up.

Time to REGROUP.

I really need to summarize my observations, review my successes and list my outstanding symptoms.

1) The first thing I need to do is to use iridology to see if there is any change since the last set of photos. It’s been six months since the last time so there should be some changes. I’ve been taking a great multivitamin and a higher dose of magnesium so I would expect to see some improvement because the vibration is not as strong as it used to be.

2) I really need to go through the entire blog again to see if anything I’ve discovered in the past is relevant now that I have overlooked at the time. I’d like to look at the deficiencies that I know for sure: Magnesium, vitamin A, Niacin, Riboflavin and vitamin E to see if I can find a common ground to the cause.

3) I need to find a list of factors that contribute to Magnesium loss and investigate the symptoms of each one.

4) Make a list of vitamins and minerals that are destroyed by high sugar intake.

Thought it might be time to document my daily intake of vitamins, minerals and herbs for the record. I’ve been taking the core vitamin and minerals for a while now and the herbal remedies where only recently added to fight candida. The magnesium, niacin and the multivitamin are the only ones that I know if I’ve missed taking it. The multivitamin has the active form of B6 and sometimes I take it earlier in the day because I have that “weird” feeling in my head. It goes away everytime I take any form of B6.

———————————————————–

I start every morning with the candida trauma kit:

Pysillium Fibre/Caprilic Oil/Bennonite mix

Nu Life: Magnesium: 500 mg three times a day
Vitamin C: 500 mg three times a day
Niacin: 50-100 mg three times a day
Enzymes: 1 capsule three times a day

Nu Life Multivitamin: Twice a day
Olive Leaf & Black Walnut: Twice a day

Nu Life: Omega Three: Once a day (380 DHA content)
Co-enzyme Q10: Once a day
Garlic 1000 mg Once a day

Acidophilus just before bed.

I also take the Magnesia Phosphorica in between doses of magnesium if I need to. I usually get a very mild pain in my chest and it goes away the instant I take it.

For the past few months I’ve also taken a more serious approach to eating more fruits and vegetables and healthy eating. I try to eat 1-2 Fuji apples and 1-3 bananas a day. I’ll have oatmeal with flax seeds for breakfast and sometimes I’ll eat cucumbers and tomatoes as snack foods.

Went shopping to check out the Boxing Day sales. After a couple hours not finding of anything of interest, I head to the only store that wasn’t busy. The health food store! I picked up an extra strength Kyolic garlic supplement at 1000 mg, once per day. Got home and did some more googling about the effects of garlic:

Fungal Infections

Garlic in certain forms is considered a potent antibiotic and can be particularly effective against certain fungal infections. Like viruses, fungal infections are particularly difficult to treat. Traditional medical treatments for fungal infections are usually toxic and can be ineffectual over the long term. To the contrary, garlic has proven itself as an effective anti-fungal agent against candida, aspergillus and cryptococci.

A report from a Chinese medical journal delineates the use of intravenous garlic to treat a potentially fatal and rare fungal infection of the brain called cryptococcal meningitis. In the report, the Chinese compared the effectiveness of the garlic with standard medical treatment which involved a very toxic antibiotic called Amphotericin-B. The study revealed that intravenous garlic was more effective than the drug and was not toxic regardless of its dosage.

One study using liquid garlic extract found that candida colonies were substantially reduced in mice that had been treated with the garlic. This same study also revealed that garlic stimulated phagocytic activity. This implies that infections such as candida may be controlled because garlic stimulates the body’s own defenses. Applied externally, garlic oil can be used to treat ringworm, skin parasites and warts. Lesions that were caused by skin fungi in rabbits and guinea pigs were treated with external applications of garlic extract and began to heal after seven days.

Allicin is primarily a fungistatic substance which can slow or completely stop the proliferation of the microorganisms. As an external treatment, garlic has also been found to effectively treat acne and thrush.

YEAST INFECTIONS AND GARLIC

Garlic has proven over and over that it is an effective antifungal agent. For anyone suffering from recurring yeast infections, garlic should be added to the diet. Its compounds are very active against candida albicans which causes yeast infections. Some studies have shown that garlic is more potent in treating yeast infections than nystatin, gentian violet and six other reputable antifungal agents.

Yeast infections plague millions of Americans and can cause conditions such as thrush, vaginal yeast infections and intestinal yeast disorders. Candida albicans has been linked to a wide variety of symptoms including chronic fatigue, depression, infertility and allergies. Much of the scientific research done on garlic has centered around its antimicrobial activity, especially against infectious fungi like C. albicans which causes yeast infections. Chicks that were inoculated with the C. albicans organism were cured after ten days of ingesting garlic.

A study reported in Mycologia in 1977 concluded that garlic significantly inhibited all isolates of yeast-like fungi that were tested. Once again, it is important that the allicin component of garlic is present in order to receive the antifungal effect.

Some research has suggested that raw garlic was not effective against yeast infections, while aged extracts were very good. An added bonus of using garlic to treat yeast infections is that no clinical stains of C. albicans have been known to become resistant to garlic therapy.

Because high blood sugar is also related to a higher risk of yeast infections, garlic therapy has an additional advantage. Garlic compounds have demonstrated their ability to lower blood glucose levels which would help to decrease one’s risk of developing a yeast infection.

And with such strong evidence against candida, how many people have mentioned this? NONE. Not one person mentioned taking simple garlic for candida although the naturopath and the iridologist suggested a candida infection. It was never mentioned.

So I’ll try it and see what happens…

This Saturday will be nine weeks since the simple B6 vitamin blood test and not a word on the results. This is outrageous. “Our stated turnaround time is 15 days” seemed a little dated now. It has been exactly 60 days today since the blood test was taken.

60 days for a standard vitamin blood test. What a joke. It’s no wonder my doctor wants me on antidepressants…

I did some reasearch and found a web site that explained that you should take multiple yeast killers, and alternate combinations every two weeks. They suggest taking at least two fungicides at a time, and alternate with another set of two at least every two weeks. They grouped the fungicides in pairs (Group A, B, C, and D)

GROUP A: Black Walnut and Olive Leaf.

GROUP B: Caprylic Acid and Berberine.

GROUP C: Cat’s Claw and Garlic.

GROUP D: Oil of Oregano and Pau D’Arco.

One of the other suppliments they recommend is garlic. The combination of Garlic, Olive Leaf Extract, and Pau D\’Arco are widely used to treat Candidiasis.

Doctor Google?

Garlic has demonstrated significant antifungal activity against C. albicans in both animal and test tube studies. Greater anti-Candida activity has resulted from exposing Candida to garlic, than to nystatin—the most common prescription drug used to fight Candida. No clinical studies of garlic in the treatment of candidiasis have yet been conducted. However, some doctors suggest an intake equal to approximately one clove (4 grams) of fresh garlic per day; this would equal consumption of a garlic tablet that provides a total allicin potential of 4,000 to 5,000 mcg.

Looks like I’ll be adding Garlic to my every growing list of suppliments!
